Well groomed men are so 2017
An aspect of being the best version of yourself is looking your best.
The ‘cut your hair and go’ mentality of male grooming is dying , as well as social taboos implying men who take pride in their appearance are less “masculine”.
While our ‘fathers’ may not have been keen on primping and preening (my own dad swears by a dab of Vaseline and a slosh of Brut to solve any of his beauty dilemmas), the same cannot be said of our own children’s fathers. With figures from Friday Magazine showing that a high proportion of young males are increasingly interested in grooming and personal appearance.
And besides, we men do not have the luxury of using foundations and mascaras to shield our imperfections or emphasize our best facial features.
We therefore have no choice but to keep our skin glowing, our hair trimmed, beard brushed, and ensure we peruse people’s nostrils with our signature scents.
Excluding the basic deodorant and body lotion, I have made this easy for you by curating the below list of top five (5) grooming items that every man should have in his bathroom closet and also a recommendation at the end of the article.
A deep cleanser will have a noticeable impact over time, especially knowing the dusty weather in this region. Cleansers will remove excess oil and dirt on the face, without stripping the skin. Cleansers I’d recommend:
Eskinol Facial cleanser:
Facial scrub: When you exfoliate regularly you help remove ingrained dirt and old dead skin, thus improving the over all look of your face. It also helps in opening pores , thus promoting beard growth.
I recommend: St Ives Apricot Scrub
You can purchase it at drugstores and local supermarkets.
Bodyspray/Aerosol: Body sprays function a lot like perfumes. They contain fragrance extracts such as herbs, oils and spices, mixed with a percentage of alcohol and water. Like colognes or perfumes, they’re applied to the clothes or on certain points of the skin, giving you a fresh scent that lasts for a few hours. I spritz on fragrances first, then I spray on bodyspray to enhance/complement its scent.
These Bodysprays in Particular have scents that smell good , complement fragrances as well as good lasting power :
Sure Williams Racing:
Sure invisible Ice:
Adidas Ice Dive:
Puma Push the Heat:
Taking proper care of your beard is a more involved process than simply keeping it trimmed. You need to shampoo it. You should brush it with the right kind of brush, such as a boar’s head brush. You should put beard balm on it. Given its awesome blend of carrier and essential oils, beard oil can make your beard go from looking just “meh” to unbelievably good.
I recommend : Mo Bros Beard Oil. Affordable and comes with different scents

A very essential part of your personal hygiene is your “smell”. It’s an obvious sign that you are organized and care about their looks. It is also a very good way of creating a first and lasting impression.
Fragrances I recommend:
Dolce and Gabanna the one EDP:
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme:
