Looking Good, Stylish And Classy
Exfoliate once or twice a week, it makes shaving easier. When you have your shower, soak your manly beard with conditioner of choice - this will soften the bristles and make for a better shave. Shave just after you've showered or when you're still in the shower, if you want. When you shave, use either gel, oil, foam or conditioner. Get yourself a decent razor, not a 99-pence-for-a-pack-of-20 disposable one. Shave with the grain - smooth and slowly. Rinse your razor after each stroke If you cut yourself, use either wet toilet paper, toothpaste, or a styptic pencil to stop the bleeding. Rinse your face. Re-apply gel, oil, foam or conditioner. Re-shave, this time against the grain, for the smoothest feel. Rinse again, with ice cold water, this will close the pores and stop dirt getting into your skin. Liberally apply a soothing aftershave balm, but don't use alcohol-based aftershave, it dries out your skin. Dry your razor off on a towel after you use it, it will last a lot longer.
Spend $60 on a pair of clippers and prepare to save a load of money on grooming and look good for the next several years. Need a haircut? Figure out which length works best for you (start at 1", then move down continuously until you're most comfortable) and spend 15 minutes going at it. Get a friend to straighten up the back for you.
Want to know if your breath stinks? Lick your wrist, let it dry, and smell it. Yes it's nasty. yes it works. Want to get rid of the stink? get a tongue scraper. That grey crap on the back of your tongue is why your breath smells.
Place a fresh clean towel on your pillow before sleeping at night. Say goodbye to acne. A fresh towel also smells and feels awesome.
Trim your eyebrows, ear hairs and nose hairs. Ask your barber or hairdresser to go over the edges of your ears and to shave your neck.
Use moisturizer. Lots of it. unless you're going for that scandinavian fisherman look.
Trim your fingernails. File them. Do not bite them.
Use soap. Not shower gel or liquid soap or any of that crazy stuff. Buy a natural bar of soap. And use a cloth, maybe use a back brush too.
Throw out your can of Axe/Lynx. Buy a nice cologne. Two to three light sprays onto your skin, not clothes, should last you the whole day.
Forget logos. A nice fitting shirt is more important than the logo placed on it. Make sure where the seam on top of the sleeves is matches, where the edge of your shoulders are. If they aren't, it doesn't fit properly.
Hats and shoes are the only exceptions to this rule, because it's hard to find hats without obvious logos, and dress shoes are only shoes that come logoless. Keep your jeans free of large holes. If so, the holes should be limited to the shins. Absolutely no knee or thigh holes. Having the ends of the legs frayed from normal wear is not only acceptable, it's preferred. A pair of pants is good for about a week. After that, you need to wash it. A shirt is good for anywhere between 1-5 days, depending on whether or not you were sweating in it. Make sure you have atleast one suit.
Step into the shower without having a towel down. Stepping on the towel will put your feet bacteria on it, wash feet thoroughly and step out only onto a clean small towel until dry and put on clean socks. This prohibits you from stepping directly onto the ground your dirty feet were on. You'll never have stinky feet this way.
Wash your scrotum everyday. Then, put baby powder down there, to keep fresh. Don't shave, trim the hair. Hair is normal, but it's okay to keep it neat.
