Let’s face facts gentlemen. We all have embarrassing grooming issues and problems. But never fear - we have solutions! Many of these men's grooming problems in fact can be solved quickly and efficiently with just a little TLC. Follow these simple tips below to eliminate your embarrassing grooming issues once and for all.
Dandruff & Dry Scalp
Dandruff is easily one of the most noticeable and problematic grooming issues men have. It’s hard to hide flakes and unfortunately those of us with dandruff get a bad rap. That whole you only get one chance to make a great impression thing is kinda true.
Luckily, it's a relatively easy problem to fix. A great anti-dandruff shampoo treatment for men like CONTROL loaded with coal tar is the easiest and most effective way to eliminate flakes. Just wash your regularly and watch those flakes fade away. Pair it up with a great conditioner and that dandruff won’t stand a chance.
Dry, Brittle Hair
Our hair goes through a lot of wear and tear during the day. Elements like wind, rain, and specifically heat can not only cause some serious damage, but can also strip your hair of essential oils and nutrients leaving you with dry, brittle, and definitely not Bueno hair. Incorporating an amazing conditioner paired with a hydrating shampoo into your grooming routine is the best way to restore your hairs natural balance and infuse it with the vitamins and nutrients needed to keep it healthy and strong. Surprisingly (or sadly), guys shampoo more than condition, and it should be the other way around as conditioning is so critical to great men's hair!
Lack Of Hair Volume
Turn up the volume gents! Flat, lifeless hair follicles can make achieving the hairstyle you want nearly impossible. Not only that, but having incredible volume and texture is a must when it comes to having a healthy looking hairdo. Luckily enough, an amazing pre-styler, like our best-selling SALT Natural Sea Salt Spray will infuse your hair with a blast of volume and texture. Also, it will be loaded with a hydrating agent like sea kelp to also keep your luscious locks from drying out. If you really want to kick the volume up a notch, pair this with our incredible Volume shampoo that's jam-packed with Biotin and rice protein to say goodbye to flat, lifeless hair once and for all.
Frizzy hair happens when your hair cuticle becomes too dry. When the cuticle is dehydrated, the outer layer lets in more air into the hair strand. Your dry hair will pull moisture from the humid air, causing it to swell, frizz up and resemble a bird’s nest on your head. But lucky enough, there is a sure-fire way to tame the unruly beast that is frizzy hair. The answer is Argan Oil.
Argan oil is loaded with protective antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamin E that can give dehydrated strands a much-needed boost. It’s particularly beneficial if you have curly, coarse or thick hair, but it works amazing for all hair types.
Unibrow & Bushy Eyebrows
People notice your eyebrows. They are called brows - plural for a reason - there should be two! If you have some caterpillars sitting above your eyes (the dreaded unibrow), it’s time to take them down a notch via some tweezer plucking.
Also, if you have bushy eyebrows using a great grooming scissor set is a total breeze, and doesn’t take much time at all. Simply brush your eyebrows out, pick your desired shape, and trim anything that hangs over. The most important thing to remember here is not to go overboard. Eyebrow hair takes much longer to grow in and is definitely much more noticeable when it’s gone. Take your time and be sure of your cuts. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for awhile.
Acne, Blackheads & Skincare
Acne sucks - we can't sugar coat having blackheads and whiteheads on your face. It’s important to resist the temptation to just step up to the mirror and start popping away. Using an acne kit is a much safer and effective way to eliminate acne, as popping zits with your hands can introduce more oil and bacteria to the site. Pair this kit up with a deep-cleansing and exfoliating facial scrubber and get ready to say sayonara pimples. Getting a facial every now and then can do wonders for your skincare regimen too.
Long Nose & Ear Hairs
Nose hairs are gross, especially if you have some boogers clinging on for dear life that can't break thru your forest of nose hair. Grab your nose hair trimmer and trim those bad boys down. Our nose hair trimmer not only eliminates those pesky nose hairs, but it does so without the painful tugging and pulling like other trimmers. Nose hairs are definitely no bueno. Adding a quick nose hair trim daily is an essential part of your grooming routine. And, don't forget about that ear hair too - it's gotta go!
Razor Bumps & Burn
Feeling the razor burn? Getting that shaving redness and razor bumps that won't go away? It happens to the best of us. Regardless of how skilled you are with the razor, irritation to your face is bound to happen. The secret to a great shave is the prep (hot water to open pores, clean blade) and using a pre-shave oil so that your razor glides effortlessly across your skin. Also, don't forget to use an aftershave. Using an aftershave balm is the best way to cool the burn and keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Itchy & Scratchy Beard
Rocking a beard is legendary, but rocking an itchy beard can be a total pain and may cause you to say sayonara to that amazing scruff. You may be surprised to know it is most likely not the beard itself that itches, it is irritation an dryness in the skin underneath. By using a super-hydrating beard oil, you can hydrate the often-neglected skin under your beard to not only eliminate the itch, but annoying beard dandruff as well. Give your beard the love it deserves, and give it a fresh coat of hydration via a beard oil and beard balm.
Bacne is one of the most neglected grooming issues for men. Men sweat and breakout a lot on the back and most don't do anything to actually clean their back because they don't have the proper tools to reach that hard to reach area. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. By using a long handle scrub brush, putting a little elbow grease on those hard to reach areas is a cinch. Pair it up with your favorite body wash, and exfoliate that bacne out of existence.
Bad Body Odor & Fragrance
Bad body odor is not only extremely noticeable, but for many people (the spicy senoritas included) can be a total deal breaker. If you're not sure who in the room is the one that smells bad, it is probably you! Make sure you’re using an incredibly scented body wash like Desperado and deodorant daily to eliminate that body odor.
While a cologne fragrance won't solve your body odor issues, it can hide some of that funk away and empower you to seize the day despite the embarrassing issue. If you're not sure what scent to grab, check out our fragrance samples set which is a great way to try out our fragrance line. In general, go with darker/warmer scents in the winter and lighter during the spring/summer.
Nasty Nails/Manicure For Men
Dirt, oil, grease, and more can all end up on our hands or under your nails. Besides that smile of yours, nails are one of the first things woman notice about a man. If you can't take care of your nails, what can you take care of?! Don’t let your nails be noticed for all the wrong reasons. Grab yourself a professional-quality manicure kit with all the nail tools you'll need to keep your nails looking amazing. It only takes a few minutes, and doing it in the comfort of your own home makes it as easy as can be. Or hit the nail salon and get a manicure. You'll feel uncomfortable for a few seconds but come out of there a grooming champion.
Below The Belt: Smelly Balls
Balls stink! Not to mention, sweaty, sticky testicles are just plain uncomfortable. A great body powder will not only eliminate odor, but will also give you all day protection against sweat. Sayonara chafing and irritation. A little on the back side works amazing for swamp butt as well. Added bonus, it is also perfect for curing stinky, sweat feet.
Foot File: Rough Feet & Calluses
File this away gents: You gotta take care of your feet! Dry, cracked, callus ones especially. Not to mention, no one wants to play footsie if your feet feel like sandpaper. Using a foot file in the shower at least once a week is an easy way to keep your feet feeling silky smooth and looking their best. Now go ahead and rock those sandals or flip-flops!
While some spicy señoritas dig a little chest hair, it's pretty safe to say that no spicy señoritas dig back hair. Not only that, rocking a man-carpet on your back can be just plain uncomfortable as the hair traps in sweat and odor. If you're rocking some wicked back hair, it's time to let it go. The easiest and most efficient way to get rid of back hair is grab yourself a high-quality back razor. Skip the waxing or asking your significant other to razor it for you. This is a problem that can be solved quickly, and more importantly, on your own with a great back razor.
That’s it gentlemen, the answers to all your grooming problems. Follow these simple tips to eliminate your grooming gaffes for good!
