Grooming for a guy can be as simple as moisturizing your hands regularly. There’s no need for incorporating an extravagant, time-consuming beauty regimen to your daily life. It’s all about maintenance – not enhancement.

While women feel extreme societal pressure to wear makeup and get their hair done, men just sort of float by. In fact, the men who “try too hard” are often considered effeminate. Frankly speaking, we think that’s complete BS. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your best, and, if you get more attention from women because of it? Sounds like a win-win to us.

By the end of this short guide we guarantee you’re going to be the Dapper Dan your girlfriend/wife/mother/ always wanted you to be…

Feet

We know the idea of getting a pedicure might challenge your masculinity, but level with us for a moment. What could be better than having someone rub and manicure your feet for 45 minutes? Ditch the Hobbit feet and get the occasional pedicure. No one will think less of you.

Hands

Not all women want to feel your calluses all over their soft skin, this is especially true of men who work with their hands for living. Taking a couple of minutes throughout the day to apply lotion to your hands is the least you could do. Additionally, getting a manicure once a month won’t kill you. It’s usually about $20 and feels great.

Eyebrows

Bad eyebrows aren’t a death sentence in the dating world, but, well, they aren’t helpful either. If you have a little uni-brow action going on, lightly pluck it! Nothing major. Generally speaking, most men have nice full eyebrows as it is, all you need is some general upkeep.

Facial Hair

There’s a big difference between manly and messy. Some women love a man with facial hair, but that doesn’t give you carte blanche to look like a bum. Again, it’s all about maintenance! Shave that stubble, trim that beard, throw a little oil in there! You’d be surprised at the difference it makes.

Skin

Skincare for men is not only a thing, it’s a billion dollar industry. From moisturizers to exfoliators, there’s countless products out there to combat acne, dryness and oily skin. Having problematic skin can seriously lower your self-esteem. By implementing more of a skincare routine into your life, you may very well build that much-needed confidence back up.
