Body grooming is clearly an integral part of looking your best. There are plenty of things you can do to enhance the look of your body naturally, so to make it easy we have truncated a list of just five simple tips for you to add into your weekly routine. These tips will help you look better without your shirt on, and get you ready for those long shirtless days in the summer. Let’s begin with basic manscaping.
1. Shave Your Body Weekly
Shaving your body can seem very trivial and annoying if you don’t have the right tools. A body groomer is certainly a must have nowadays, and it makes this process so quick and easy. You simply turn the product on and just trim the hairs in a 45 degree angle like you do to the hairs on your face, whether you are using a razor or a trimmer. You can definitely also shave with a razor and some shaving soap, but it will take much longer and you will have trouble shaving off some sections where the hair grows in obscure directions, like between your breasts and in your chest cavity.
Not all of you like to have a bare chest, and that is just fine. You should however at the very least be trimming down the hairs and keeping them organized. You can use either a body groomer or a rotary electric shaver for this, which allows you to still keep that manly bear chest, but just have it more manageable.
2. Apply All Natural Antiperspirant Daily
This tip can seem very obvious to many of you, but there are still a lot of people that do not use it. On top of that, the people that do use a deodorant are most likely using one that is not very healthy for your body. Ditch the chemically made deodorants with crazy scents, and just grab one that is all natural and perhaps even scentless. You want your deodorant to keep B.O out, not to make you smell like roses. Your cologne is going to do that job instead.
*Look for formulas with lavender, vanilla, peppermint, tea tree, coconut oil, sage, or even grapefruit.
3. Hit Those Body Workouts To Lose That Belly Fat
Nothing turns most women off more than belly fat. You want to at least take care of your body enough so that you have lower levels of body fat. Not everyone needs to have six pack abs, but you can still lose the obscene beer belly with just a few workouts per week. Your body is your temple, so treat it like it royalty.
*Focus on ab workouts like crunches, sit ups, bicycles, vertical leg crunches, and even jogging. You don’t even need to hit the gym to do these.
4. Exfoliate Your Body Once A Week
A lot of guys don’t know this, but you do break out on your chest too, especially because dirt gets trapped inside those pores. If you sweat, you are more than likely to break out on different occasions. Nobody likes seeing pimples and acne anywhere on the body, so exfoliating is definitely a must. There are plenty of great body scrubs out there, and using it once or twice a week can make a big difference. It will make your skin look more vibrant and keep those pesky pimples away.
*Look for all natural ingredients when choosing a body wash. Skip the chemicals like we’ve always been saying.
5. Cut Those Fingernails and Toenails Biweekly
It is very easy to forget about your nails. A month goes by and you have more dirt built up inside your fingernails than there is in your backyard. That is a bad sign, and has many negative repercussions. You can break out by touching your face with dirty fingernails, so trimming them and cleaning the cuticles is a must. If you do not have the patience for this, just get a manicure and pedicure. It is no longer taboo to see a man go to a nail salon and take care of himself. Women love men who treat their body well, including your nails.
Now that you have read these 5 body grooming tips, keep them in the back of your mind. Build a solid routine that encompasses all of these and you will see massive improvements in your personal hygiene. I know a lot of us men are busy, but it really does not take long to incorporate these tips into your weekly regime, and after a while it will just become second nature.
