6 Things Every Stylish Man Should Have in His Grooming Kit
You all know the impact of a well-groomed appearance. When you see a man who looks like he’s just walked out of a fashion magazine or billboard, you’ll definitely address such a person with respect. You will also want to classify his personality as a stylish man. This is how people see you when you dress in the same manner.
Conversely, you might have seen men who look like they’ve been hit by a truck…shirt wrongly buttoned, hair looking so rough, trouser rumpled, and other forms of indecency. This is a great turn off and can lower the respect accrued to such people.
So, what’s the major distinguishing factor between the two categories of men described above? It’s simply called “GROOMING”. You might have heard this word before and maybe have a faint understanding of it. Well, I will tell you more about it.
Grooming is more about your appearance. You cannot say you are stylish if you lack good grooming because it is a major part of your style.
Therefore, there are some important items that should be in your grooming kit always. I will show you some and tell you how to use it properly.
You see that strip of wood, plastic or metal with a row of narrow teeth, it is one item you shouldn’t leave out of your grooming kit like a man. Combs are very vital for untangling and arranging your hair. So, don’t make the mistake of thinking combs are for girls. No, it is really good for you if you have hairs on your head. The only time you really do not need it is if you are bald or have naked skin.
That being said, you can get a comb that best suits you and them for your hairs or beards. Run them gently through your hair until your desired smoothness is achieved. Never be in a hurry or do it haphazardly.
I usually get irritated when I hear guys say they do not need cologne. I mean it is one of the things that express your manliness. It helps you appear confident, powerful and less stressed. So, get some manly cologne and use it anytime you want to go out and even when you are at home.
In this part of the world, the stress and weather conditions can make you sweat every now and then. This can make you messy and sticky. Besides, it can make you smell bad. So, you need to keep some good antiperspirants in your grooming kit. Try to use them every day especially in hot weather conditions to keep you feeling dry and nice. I would recommend you get spray antiperspirants because they do not stain and usually last longer than other types.
- Manicure set
One of the things ladies check out when they meet you for the first time is your fingers. I mean it speaks volume of your personal hygiene. A lot of guys make excuses that they are busy and don’t have time to trim their fingers. But this is really wrong. You don’t have to spend all day in the saloon treating your nails. Just getting a manicure set and including it in your grooming kit would make things easier for you. In the manicure set, you will find the tweezers used for removing ingrown hairs; nail clippers used to trim the toe or fingernails; the nail or cuticle scissors used to trim tiny hangnail, and the nail file used to gently shape the nails.
- Exfoliating or cleaning brush
You can remove dirt or other debris you picked up during the day using the cleaning or exfoliating brush. This is better than using your fingers, towel or sponge. You should have this item in your grooming kit to get rid of dead skin from your face. This helps to boost blood circulation.
Gently massage your face with the bristles of the brush in a circular motion. However, make you don’t apply much pressure.
You need to have a manual or electric toothbrush as a man. This helps to remove or reduce dental plaque and reduce the chances of gum inflammation. Ensure you use your toothbrush at least once in a day. But it is recommended that you do it twice.
Being stylish does not end here as you have to be healthy at all places to appear stylish as a man.
