You could be a successful professional raking in the moolah, flaunting it away to glory, but if you look shabby, women will steer clear of you. We know you do not want that! So read on to know the secret of how to put across that well groomed look!
The trick isn’t to spend a fortune on a thousand different products, or to lock yourself in the bathroom for hours at a time. Rather, you should develop a daily routine that is quick, simple.
Never Delay your Visit to the Hairdresser
Many men wait for the ‘forlorn tugging of your locks’ stage before doing anything about it. If you feel your hair needs a cut, then there are chances other people also have noticed that about you. The trick is to be proactive.
Find your Signature Fragrance
Aftershave isn’t supposed to be loud or obvious. You may want people to stop and notice, but obviously not feel dizzy, smothered by the excess of fragrance. It should become a subtle part of your overall presence. Rather than owning 8-10 average quality fragrances you pick from each morning at random, find one or two classic ones you really like and invest in them. Typically woody, spicy or herby scents suit the winter months, while lighter, citrusy scents work best in spring and summer.
Scrub your Face
They may sound like a woman-thing, but face scrubs are just textured face washes designed to get the dead skin off your face (particularly the nose, the most exposed part of your face). Use one on a Monday morning to scrub the weekend off your face and every other day of the week go for a plain face wash that’s less abrasive.
Manage your Facial Fuzz
Unless you’re planning to move out into the wilderness to find yourself, facial hair of any length needs to be tamed and maintained if you want to be taken seriously. You don’t have to spend much on a beard trimmer, so pick one up and get into a weekly habit of tidying up. Don’t, however, go too far.
Put your Best Foot Forward
They might not be on show much at this time of year, but a good foot care routine is still important. Take care of them after a bath or shower (when the skin is softest) using a pumice stone on any dead skin, before lathering a generous amount of moisturiser on.
With these quick tips on keeping yourself groomed, you can be sure to make that impression!
Our body is exposed to a great deal of pressure, by means of long working hours and maybe intense work out sessions. In the midst of all the trauma and drama, we need to bring balance in our daily activities to rejuvenate and come back with greater force. For those who have a tendency to soak themselves from head to toe with meetings, phone calls, assignments, projects, but in order to achieve a good body and a healthy mind, it is important that a significant amount of care is given to our peace of mind.
And spas are not just for the ladies– whoever said that only women need to focus on grooming and rejuvenation? Men today, are exploring these sides equally well.
The metrosexual, lumbarsexual and all types of sexuals– men too, must visit spas on a regular basis to keep the stress at bay and achieve a balanced lifestyle. Here are some of the reasons why men should be adding a healthy dose of relaxation to their routines:
Rub it all away
The beauty of regular massages lies in their ability to relax the body along with toning it, adding luster and flexibility to the body. Whether you are suffering from insomnia, stress, body aches, joint pain, overexerted because of sports, there are a series of massages like sports massages, Balinese massage, trigger point massage, aromatherapy etc. which can be taken up based on one’s needs. The slow pressure helps in recovering faster with a better form.
Deep Cleanse it
If you are living in the metropolitan city, let’s face it, the pollution can be consuming. Deteriorating the quality of the skin, hair, lungs, the pollutants in the air are also detrimental to mental growth. Unclogging the pores, facials are a great way to refresh the skin, prevent acne and remove the dead skin. The bread facials are specially targeted towards adding hydration to the face and helps in keeping it clean. Women do not own the facial world. And men, if you still think this is too pink for you, what if we told you those facials help minimize wrinkles as well?
Puncture the trouble zones
The Chinese methodology of acupuncture is successful in treating both big and small issues. Targeting stress, insomnia, migraine, headache, digestive disorders, tennis elbow, joint pain, and backache etc. needles can be a good thing for a change. Many people who have experienced this methodology have come up with positive feedback like the pain has disappeared, the body aches are gone and a natural face lift. The anatomic sites where the needles are inserted enhance the ability of the body to heal faster and make it possible to become healed and whole once again.
Scrub and exfoliation
Not just our face, even the body demands for deep cleansing and detoxification.
While eating right can cleanse the body internally for external purposes, it is important that body scrub treatments are undertaken to remove the dead skin and acne troubles. With the regular gym goers, the sweat can wreck havoc, but with scrubbing, each and every site can be worked on. Also, scrubbing enhances the blood flow, boosts hydration and keeps the skin young and lustrous. Men or women, who would not want these benefits.
Gone are the days when most lifestyle choices were seen in gendered terms- some routines fixed for women and certain others considered fit for men. Such thoughts are indeed a passe, and now you know how…!
Transcending from religious closets (Jesus or Moses), beards have ushered men into bagging the lumbersexual titles. Yes, we are talking about the drool worthy celebrities with their scruffy facial hair and gel hairstyles. Laid back looks with a scholarly appearance, what is it about beards that make men so hot and sexy? Is it the macho feel or a man with mature looks that make the martians with stubble too hot to resist? While we contemplate the real reason behind the appeal of the beards, lets have a look at these celebrities who never fail to make a statement.
From Notebook to 2016, Ryan Gosling has managed to keep us girls on our toes. Whether a light stubble or a porn star look with a heavy mustache and wispy chin whiskers, Ryan can pull of a bearded look any given day.
Thor the thunder of hotness, Chris rules the world with the straight edged scruff. The sparkle in the Australian actor’s blue eyes makes our heart skip a beat and with that beard, oh well, we’ll say no more!
Some people transform into a Greek gods with facial hair, the soccer superstar is definitely one of them. With and without is like two different persons, but we will take Beckham always. Period.
Older men with salt-pepper, full beard & classy vibes, George Clooney has wooed girls of all age groups. Hasn’t he?
A distinguished gentleman, Hugh looks good in the facial hair look. His macho personality and humble eyes dazzle more with the scurffy image.
A man who knows his style, is a man who knows how to play the game by the rules and win it too. Will Smith has been loyal to his beards, and he has all the reason to!
Last but the first in this case, Bradley Cooper is hands down a Greek God and he has been an inspiration when it comes to flaunting & maintaining facial hair. We love you Bradley!
For all you men out there reading this, you might want to know that women like their men & food hot & spicy!

Eye Relaxation techniques
Eyes, eyes baby! Both of these procedures have astringent effects on the skin. Where egg whites are rich in Vitamin B2 and riboflavin, chamomile is known to ease redness & puffiness on the skin. Green tea contains tannins, which also shrinks the swollen tissues.
Things Needed- Chamomile or green tea bags, which are steeped and cooled, and 1 egg white beaten

This DIY idea is rather old but gold. Arranging candles around the tub and lighting incense to stimulate the senses where you spend some me time, is what we are talking about.

Our hair suffers torture everyday because of pollution & sweat. While we clean our face 2-3 times a day, our hair is allowed a cleansing 2-3 times week.

Coconut oil is great for hair, which protects its denseness and richness whereas honey absorbs moisture well & helps the hair to retain the moisture.
Things Needed- 1-2 tsp of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, 5 -6 drops of peppermint oil
