Personal grooming plays an essential role in enhancing one’s personality. Remember, a lot depends on your first impression. Grooming and hygiene help you make a mark of your own in the first meeting itself. Men's grooming is now an honored art. There's no shame involved.

Below are the essential tips for men grooming:

1) Take good care of your skin- If a woman can do it, why can’t you? A man’s skin needs just as much attention as woman’s. No matter what, make sure you drink at least 2 liters of water a day. Sleep at least 6-7 hours to avoid puffy eyes and look fresh during your active hours. Keep your skin moisturized and nourished. Apply a good skin care cream before stepping out. You are inevitably going to notice the difference between you and peers.

2) Banish Irritation with after shave balm- Nicks and cuts ruining your mood? Invest in a quality after shave balm as it will soothe the skin and keep it hydrated. The finish will leave you without red bumps and irritated skin.  Balms are very simple to use. Once you’re finished shaving, rinse off the remaining shaving cream and splash your face with cold water. Use a towel to pat your face dry, then apply a small dab of aftershave balm. (Depending on the thickness of the product, you can use anywhere from a pea-sized amount to a quarter-sized quantity.) Gently massage into your skin. The whole process takes mere seconds and can make the difference between a smooth, high-quality shave and one rife with razor burn. Finding your personal best aftershave balm is definitely a worthwhile process.

3) Cleaning the face- Many guys master the use of styling gels and intricately-trimmed facial hair but fail to realize that the single most important grooming step to get right is washing the face.  Your skin needs a little bit of oil to stay supple and look healthy, so avoid cheap soaps that dry out your face. Invest in a foaming face wash or facial gel to get your face properly clean without stripping it of essential moisture

4) Applying beard conditioner-  It is equally essential to apply conditioner to beard. It nourishes, moisturizes the beard, softens the stubble on the face and gives a healthy shine.Beard conditioner keeps your beard brittle, knot free, moist, healthy and shining. It gives a hassle free styling to your beard.

5) Know which hair products work for you- One size does not fit all, and the current rotation of men's products reflect this. If you've thicker, unruly hair, know that hair styling gels are for you. The finer-headed should go for lighter products. Moreover, there's stuff for those with no hair at all. The solution is simple: do your research. Products usually do what they say on the tin, and some light reading, in addition to some slight trial-and-error, will glean the right kit for your hair.
