The Grooming Manual
Keep your men’s body hair trimmed
One of the best men’s body grooming tips you’ll ever learn is to keep everything trimmed. Keep your hair trimmed, your chest, your eyebrows, your back, your men’s pubic area, and your neck. It’s rather easy but most men are too lazy to do anything regarding keeping hair trimmed.
In general, we advise men to trim their chest hair and their pubic hair, and wax their back. With every men’s hair cut, you should trim your men’s eyebrows and your neckline.
Have a men’s facial skin care routine
It’s no longer necessary for a guy to just shave and throw on some aftershave. In order to keep your face looking healthy and energized, you need to have a men’s skin care routine.
Washing your face is the first step in any routine and the best men’s skin care routines are simple.
Wash your face in the morning and before bed or after a workout. Buy a men’s face wash that matches your skin type. Knowing your skin type is one of the most important things you can know about your skin. Once you know your skin type, you can determine the best type of face wash for you. Men with dry or sensitive skin need a specific type type of face wash, while men with oily skin need their own type of face wash.
After washing your face daily, apply a face moisturizer for men. This will help keep it hydrated, protected, and provide anti aging benefits. A hydrated face is a youthful, energized looking face.
Use a men’s face scrub once or twice a week, preferably before shaving. This will help remove dead skin cells on the skin and bring whiskers further to the surface, allowing for a closer shave.

Take care of your hair to prevent thinning and loss
A man typically remembers a few big moments in his life – the day he met the person of his dreams, the day their child was born, and the day they realized their hair was thinning or going bald. Prevent your hair from thinning or going bald by taking care of it.
Prevent men’s thinning hair by shampooing less. Every time you wash your hair, you’re stripping it of essential oils that keep it healthy. Shampooing daily removes oils and nutrients from the scalp, causing hair growth issues. The best shampoo for thin hair is a natural men’s shampoo. A natural shampoo for men will be gentler on the hair and scalp, not stripping away nutrients and essential oils.
Learn to use a conditioner for men at least a few times a week, no matter your hair type. A natural conditioner for men will help make sure your hair gets the proper nutrients it needs.
Learn shaving tips for men
When it comes to shaving, most men are doing it wrong. They’re waking up, throwing some cheap shave cream on their face, and then rubbing a dull, disposable razor over their face – only to be left with irritation, bumps, and ingrown hairs.
Learn shaving tips for men such as taking a shower to soften the skin before a shave. Learn to exfoliate the shave area pre-shave with a men’s face scrub. This will help soften the whiskers and bring facial hair further above the surface, creating a closer shave. This will also remove oil and dead skin build up that can clog your razor.
Use a natural shaving cream for men. Any men’s shaving cream that delivers rich lather will contain irritating chemicals to the skin. Lather also creates microscopic bubbles that allow the razor to touch bare skin. A natural men’s shave cream will create a protective cushion between your skin and the razor, providing a smoother shave.
Learn to use a single blade safety razor. Yes, they’re more expensive up front, but the investment will pay off when your skin feels better and you’re not buying new blades each month.
Also learn to always use an aftershave for men – it’ll change your life post shave forever by reducing irritation, bumps, in grown hairs, and redness.

Grow a beard at least once
Every man should grow a beard at least once in their life. There’s nothing manlier than having a big, well groomed beard. Growing a beard is incredibly easy too – just stop shaving! Let the hair on your face grow without touching it for a couple months. You’ll go through a patchy phase, an itchy phase, and then a bushy phase. Once you hit the bushy face, you can start to trim up the beard so it looks well kept. Throughout the beard growing stage and maintenance stage, it's always a good idea to use a high quality, natural beard oil.
