From deodorant to nails, we tell you everything you need to know for your own personal care
William Levy, Diego Boneta, and Cristiano Ronaldo have something in common. Yes, we know, they’re celebrity super stars and girls go crazy for them, but we’re talking about their impeccable, masculine look. Do you know why? Two words: personal care. And we don’t mean combing your hair and trimming your nails, we’re going a little deeper. With these simple tips you will take your grooming to the next level.
Make your deodorant your best friend
Just like there’s nothing like your best friend consoling you when your team loses a game, there’s nothing like your deodorant to spare you uncomfortable moments. Plus, you can always find one that goes perfect with your style. If you’re the type that jumps out of bed and hits the door running, try Axe Adrenaline Antiperspirant Dry Spray. It protects you for 48 hours and dries quickly. If on the other hand you’re looking for protection and aren’t in a morning rush, use Axe Adrenaline Antiperspirant Stick. This deodorant guarantees protection and an iced mint and spicy ginger fragrance to energize you when you need it most.
Fix your hair, including facial hair
As Latinos our hair is important to us and that’s why we take care of it. And that’s great, but what about your mustache or beard? They’re surely part of your style now, and it’s key that you keep them well groomed. When showering with Axe Total Fresh 3-IN-1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Shower Gel, wash your beard and ‘stache too, just like you would your hair. If they’re long enough, you can even use conditioner and comb through them. Remember that hairs in this zone are a bit thick, so it’s important to moisturize them. Last, get a haircut every 2 weeks and retouch your beard once a week so they look clean. Remember this is an important part of your personal care.
Wash your teeth and exfoliate your lips while your at it
None of us want to be the guy with coffee breath. Well, the solution is easy; brush your teeth after eating. But what if you could get more out of brushing? You can! Your toothbrush can also help you exfoliate your lips. Go over your lips about three times a week. This will help remove flakes and dry skin from your lips, and will give you an impeccable mouth inside and out.
Hydrate your skin every day
It doesn’t matter what kind of look you have, your skin is your canvas so that any style can look good on you. Keeping it moisturized and soft should be part of your daily personal care routine. To start, you need to hydrate your body and consequently, your skin. How? Drink water. But you already know this, the 8 glasses of water a day rule. But did you know that you could also hydrate it with food. Increase your daily intake of fruits and vegetables and you’ll see. Now, to hydrate your skin on the outside, use a moisturizing cream after showering and shaving with Dove® Men + Care Hydrate + Pro-Moisture Shave Cream. If your moisturizer has SPF, even better. Life Pro Tip: drink tequila, rum or craft beer in moderation because alcohol dehydrates your skin.
Wear your nails perfectly trimmed, filed and even polished
Your hands and your nails speak of your personal care. You can have a super cool look but if your nails aren’t groomed, you lose. That’s why aside from keeping your hands well kept and skin moisturized, keep your nails clean, short, filed and polished. This last step gives them a natural shine and makes them look sharp. If you want to go above and beyond and visit a salon to get a manicure, go ahead, you’ll always find a willing girl to go with you.
