Whether you care about keeping your fingertips on the pulse of men’s fashion or you like to make sure that you always put your best foot forward, grooming tips for men is a topic that could be discussed forever. While some things never change, like the need for SPF year-round and regular haircuts, there is always room to upgrade our habits, including how we groom. If you feel stuck in a skin or hair care rut and are looking for ways to switch things up and ensure you’re getting the most out of your efforts, keep reading for the best men’s grooming upgrades, all men should all be adopting in the new year.
There’s nothing like the feeling of the close and fresh shave you can get from your barber, but some home tech can give you the same feeling each time you shave at home. Upgrade your shaving routine with a heated razor, the heat helps cut through whiskers with precision and ease, and of course, the warmth of the razor is soothing and calming to the skin. There is a range of prices when it comes to heated razors, so it’s best to invest in the highest quality heated razor that fits your budget.
Baby Hands & Feet
The first places on our bodies to get calloused and rough are our hands and feet – which isn’t a good look on anyone. No matter how rugged your lifestyle, take advantage of at-home peeling wraps for your hands and feet. Not only will you feel more confident in the appearance of your hands and feet and enjoy the baby-soft skin revealed after using these peels, but your lover will also appreciate your soft touch. Even if you are single, shake hands more confidently by using a foot and hand peel each week as part of your regular self-care routine.
We all know the importance of how we smell – it’s why we use scented body washes and apply deodorant every day, even when we don’t have time to take a bath or shower. Make sure you add a masculine cologne to your grooming routine to upgrade your aesthetic this year. People find countless fragrance notes irresistible, like woody scents, ozonic scents, and of course, an earthy musk. Finding a cologne that suits your personality and smells phenomenal is one of the best new year’s resolutions to which you can commit.
Red Light Masks
If you have yet to see the red light facial masks that take the beauty world by storm, they’re worth looking into. While they may make you feel like a character in a horror film while wearing them, this at-home device can help with a host of skin issues. The hype about red light face masks is true from hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and other skin concerns. These devices are comfortable to wear and deliver spa-level results with regular use. Whether you’ve got mature skin or you’re in your twenties, this is an upgrade in which every man should invest.
You have to visit your dermatologist or medical spa to get a deep pore extraction session, but those days are over. Most people suffer from clogged pores as our faces naturally produce sebum regardless of age. Clogged pores are visible and can also lead to worse skin concerns when not addressed. An at-home pore extractor answers your clogged pores and struggling complexion. These devices remove blackheads and blemishes in a snap that doesn’t damage your skin as your fingers can. If you’re a chronic face picker or pimple popper, save your skin by using these to gently clear your pores – and spritz a toner on afterwards to keep things clean and tight.
Upgrading your grooming habits this year can include investing in a skincare line targeting your specific skin issues, buying a higher-quality trimmer with more attachment options, or perhaps seeing your dentist for teeth whitening. The above upgrades are something that all men can benefit from, and they can also be done in the comfort of your home. Make this your year by upgrading your grooming practices to look and, more importantly, feel your best.
