When it comes to grooming, little things can make a big difference. A cleanly plucked brow, clipped nose hairs or a close shave can mean the difference between looking good and looking great.

8 look-good grooming tips for men
  1. If you have a unibrow, consider laser hair removal to tidy up the area. This procedure can also be used to remove stray nose and ear hairs. Excessive facial hair is generally considered unattractive.
  2. Shave after your shower. Steam and hot water soften the bristles of your beard and open up the pores of your skin, making shaving easier and less painful.
  3. Or, shave in the shower. Most men can get a terrific shave without any lather or cream by shaving as the last part of a shower. Just five minutes of hot, steamy water provides all the moisture and hair softening your beard needs, and the rinse-off and clean-up take just seconds.
  4. Change the blade in your razor every three or four days. You could be shaving with the most expensive razor on the market, but if the blade is dull, it will leave you with a red, blotchy face.
  5. Shave off some or all of your facial hair for a more youthful look. If you have a full beard, try a goatee. If you have a goatee, go for the clean-faced look.
  6. Trim the other hair on your body. Many men losing the hair on their heads start to gain it in other places, such as the ears, nose or back. To look clean and contemporary, trim, wax or pluck unwanted hair.
  7. When the weather gets warmer, trim your armpit hair. There will be less hair to trap bacteria and, hence, less odour.
  8. Extend the life of your razors by soaking them in mineral oil. Fill a shallow dish with mineral oil and soak them for a few minutes – the oil stops the oxidation process that can dull the edges. Then use a little rubbing alcohol to clean it off.
