Men’s Grooming Guide for Valentine’s Day

By Ashish Singla

The Valentine’s Day is almost here and most of us would love to make this day a

special and unforgettable one. It requires a lot of confidence to ask someone out

and if you are those lucky ones who have found their dates then I should

congratulate you first. It’s said that first impression is the last one and I totally

agree to it. But, to create a good impression you need to look good too.

So, here are some of the tips on how to groom for Valentine’s Day:

1. Use shampoo and conditioner while taking a shower

You don’t want your date to see dandruff on your hair. While taking a shower put adequate amount of shampoo and conditioner on your hair to make your hair soft and shiny. Some of the most recommended brands are L’oreal, Garnier, Head & Shoulders, Dove etc.

2. Clear up the clogged pores and remove dirt from your face

After going out and working for long hours, your skin gets filled with dirt which leads to an increase of dead skin cells. To remove the dirt and heal your skin cells, wash your face with a gentle exfoliating face wash or apply a face mask to let your skin breathe and brighten the complexion. Some of the most recommended brands are Neutrogena, Kiehl’s, Cetaphil etc.

3. Apply and Carry a Lip Balm

It’s the winter season going on and your lips gets dry and chapped. Your crush might feel hesitant to kiss you in such situation. To avoid this situation, apply a lip balm before you go out and always carry one in your pocket too. Some of the most recommended brands are Nivea, Burt’s Bees, Blistex etc.

4. Brush and Floss your teeth

Having a bad breath when you go out with your date is one of the worst things that can spoil your night. Make sure you brush and floss your teeth well and rinse your mouth with a mouthwash. If you smoke, then you also need to carry a gum with you after brushing and flossing. Some of the most recommended brands for dental care are Colgate, Oral-B, Sensodyne, Listerine, Crest etc.

5. Apply a moisturizer on your body and face

Protect your skin from getting dry in the winter by applying a good moisturizer on your body and face so that you don’t have to worry about your skin before going out to meet your date. I’ll prefer a moisturizer which is made for all-skin types. Some of the most recommended brands are Nivea, Jack Black, Neutrogena, Dove, Kiehl’s etc.

6. Make sure your armpits smell good

Sweat can make your armpits smell really bad and you don’t want your date to maintain a distance from you while you sit and walk together. To avoid this situation, apply an anti-perspirant spray/roll-on to keep your armpits smell good so that you don’t lose your confidence. Some of the most recommended brands are Old Spice, Axe, Nivea, Degree etc.

7. Trim your facial hair

If you have a long and uneven beard/moustache, then you might need to trim it out and provide it a good shape so that your face doesn’t look messy and dirty. You don’t want your date to feel your itchy facial hair while she kisses you. Some of the most recommended brands are Philips, Gillette etc.
