6 Grooming Routine Mistakes Men Should Definitely Avoid
There is little doubt that grooming is an important aspect of a man's life. Over the years, majority of the male population has been avoiding grooming themselves. But with male objectification at an all time high, many men have joined the grooming bandwagon. Some have taken this seemingly good habit to an altogether different level. There's a thin line between proper grooming and preening and most from the entertainment industry and even some footballers are bad examples. So we have highlighted common grooming routine mistakes which are doing your looks no good.
Unkempt Facial Hair
So you think you can match the likes of Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor when it comes to facial hair. Most guys have this insane desire to imitate the stars. They grow a beard or keep a moustache with the vengeance. What they don't understand is that, there's a difference in the maintenance and grooming of their facial hair. And we aren't even talking about the questionable looks. Making it a permanent fixture is a move we don't endorse, if you can't maintain it well.
Perfectly Plucked Brows
Men doing eyebrows is generally considered cool nowadays. What we aren't cool with, is that this simple task being turned into an art form. Unibrows according to us should be dealt with, but the overuse of tweezers isn't good either. This problem persists with people with bushy brows. In their enthusiasm, they arch it way too much. Resist the shaping and tapering. And in case you are looking forward to shaping your brows, keep the example of David Beckham in mind.
Ok, we know you have money to burn and have invested in a high end perfume. But, that perfume shouldn't invade other's nostrils. As a rule, your cologne should never enter a room before you. It is faux pas that should be avoided at all cost. Exercise control, and stick to only a couple of sprays per outing.
Wet Look Disaster
We get it that you are fond of your new haircut and are trying your level best to keep the look intact. But, overuse of the wet look gel can leave your scalp in a whole lot of trouble. Too much of it can cause dandruff. So, unless you want to cook up a storm on top, you'd be wary of the amount of wet look gel usage.
Beards have a tendency to go out of hand when not maintained. Imagine your makeout session gone sour because of your coarse beard. You might have to rethink your beard strategy going forward. A bit of stubble is good, especially when it gently rubs against her soft skin. Love your beard too much? Then invest in a good beard oil and conditioner. Make those unruly hairs soft and desirable.
We all strive for perfectly white teeth. Some succeed, some don't and then there are some who go overboard. Once they open their mouths, it feels like lightning has struck. It's a classic example of celebrity craze gone wrong. Maintain a natural white colour. Use natural methods instead of chemical solutions. The latter often erodes the enamel in the long run.
