Before We Get Started, Let’s Take A Look at What Male Grooming Is.

Male grooming is all about taking care of yourself. From looking after your skin and body to your threads, it’s all the physical aspects of selfcare. Why is male grooming important? Well, besides that it’s hygienic, looking after your body makes you look good. And when you look good, you feel good.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are some of the best male grooming trends and tips. Let’s get you grooming!

Tip 1: Grow the Right Beard

If you are going to grow a beard, make sure it’s one that suits you. Start off by knowing your face shape and then grow from there.

Oval shape – To give your face definition, grow a beard that’s squared at the jaw, with clean lines on the cheeks. Keep it short on the sides and cut underneath your chin.

Rectangle shape – To give the impression of a slightly wider jaw, grow a beard that’s full at the cheeks.

Triangular shape – The perfect beard for this shape is what we call a “Beardstache” (a moustache with a short beard or stubble).

Round shape – The beard you want is shorter on the cheeks and longer towards the chin.

Heart shape – We recommend you leave more length in the chin and moustache to add depth and volume to your jawline.

Square shape – To complement this face shape, you need to ensure that the chin area is rounded or triangular.

Diamond shape – Go wider on the cheeks and wider on the edge of the jawbone, however, so, it squares off the bottom half of your face.

Tip 2: Get the Perfect Haircut.

Nothing will boost your confidence quite like a good haircut. When you cut your hair in a way that you love, you’ll feel like you can take over the world. Seriously.

Tip 3: Love Your Skin.

Start a simple skin care routine. Cleanse. Tone. Moisturise. Just make sure that you invest in a good moisturiser as well as an SPF to protect your skin from the sun. Wash your body with a good body wash that smells great.
We can help you with that one because Axe body wash will leave your skin feeling clean and have you smelling fresh. Don’t forget about your lips. Try Vaseline Lip Therapy to keep your lips soft and crack-free.

Tip 5: Invest in a Fragrance.

Your fragrance says a lot about it. It’s one of the first things that people will notice about you. Luckily, you’ve got loads of options from Axe to choose from. Whether you go for Dark Temptation, Musk, Excite, Gold, Ice Chill, Apollo, Adrenalin or Wild Spice, choose the one that smells great on you.

Tip 6: Don’t Be a Stan. Have Your Own Sense of Style.

Having a signature style helps you stand out and be noticed. The right threads in the right fit can give others an idea of who you are or who you want to be. A great outfit can boost your confidence. How you feel in your clothes can make or break your sauce. So, choose well.

Tip 7: Exercise Regularly.

We all know that exercise is good for you. Here’s what regular can do.

  • It improves your memory and brain function.
  • It helps you maintain your weight.
  • It can improve your quality of sleep.
  • It reduces feeling of anxiety and depression.

“Regular physical activity helps to maintain a healthy body weight and reduce the risk of many chronic conditions and injuries,” says Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Daniel Berkelmans. “A high level of cardiorespiratory fitness is also one of the best predictors of overall health and well-being.”

Tip 8: Respect Yourself.

Appreciate and like yourself. Have a sense of personal worth. Self-respect is more important than being seen as a nice person. Know your boundaries and stick to them.

If you can respect yourself, others will respect you.

Let’s not stop there. Let’s keep the conversation going.
