5 Grooming Hacks Every Man Should Know
Looking and smelling good is what elevates our confidence level from zero to over a thousand. But unfortunately, good looks don’t come naturally to most of us. In fact, many of us suffer from cracked lips, chicken skin, and sometimes body odour. Luckily, looking and smelling good doesn’t need to be a daunting task. With that in mind, here are five grooming hacks to keep in mind for an easier grooming ritual.
- Lessen Pimple Redness Using Eye Drops
What could be worse than having a zit pop up on one of your special days? Still, you shouldn’t pop that unsightly bump as it’ll only get infected and worsen your look. If you don’t have some pimple-removing ointment on hand, consider applying eye drops on the affected area instead to reduce pimple redness. Just don’t forget to wash your hands beforehand, and use cotton buds to avoid transferring the germs from your hands to your face.
- Remove Dandruff by Lathering Coconut Oil
Coconut oil doesn’t only work wonders as a skin moisturizer, it also aids in removing dandruff from your scalp – all thanks to the capric and lauric acid ingredients it contains. All you’ve got to do is apply it on your scalp, leave it on for five to ten minutes, and notice how instantly removes the dandruff from your scalp.
- Keep Your Genitals Fresh by Applying Baby Powder
Your genitals start to smell when they sweat. Avoid this by putting some baby powder down there. Apart from absorbing the odour, the powder will also help in keeping your balls dry all day long. Just don’t go overboard with the amount you’ll be applying, or things might get messy for your groin.
- Clean Your Ears Using Olive Oil
Although we often use them, cotton buds aren’t always great for cleaning the ears. Olive oil, however, when applied a few drops at a time, lubricates your ears and loosens the ear wax causing it fall out of its own accord. All you’ve got to do is heat a small amount of olive oil to body temperature, dispense it into your ear using a sterilized eyedropper, follow up with a warm water, and wait for the wax ball to dislodge. Gross? Totally, but it works wonders in keeping your ears free of wax.
- Treat Shaving Nicks by Smearing a Lip Balm
If you’re anything like us, then the like of alum blocks and styptic pencils are probably not on the top of your shopping list. This is the reason why home remedies for shaving wounds are indispensable. So next time to nick yourself with your razor, consider smearing some lip balm over the cut. The balm’s waxy texture will help in sealing the wound, while allowing blood clot to form.
Looking and smelling good doesn’t have to seem like a really daunting task. Just put these grooming hacks to work, and you’ll surely look like the best version of yourself.
