Think manicures and pedicures, facials, and massages are activities exclusively meant for women? It turns out men should (and do!) participate in some of these very same routines. In addition to eating right and exercising, male grooming is an important part of healthy living for men, and thankfully, it is much less stigmatized as “un-masculine” nowadays. The team at New Paradise Men’s Spa in New York City offers three basic grooming tips for men.
3 Essential Grooming Tips For Men
1. Shave Smart
Whether you’ve got a trendy beard or opt for a clean-cut look, know how to maintain your facial hair. Buy an inexpensive beard trimmer or purchase a good shaving oil that will help you avoid cuts while you shave. While men should know how to give themselves a good shave, it can also be useful to go to a barber or a men’s spa once in a while and leave the job to the experts.
2. Be Handy
Every now and then, go a step beyond just trimming your nails and get a manicure and pedicure. Rather than fancy gel enamels and nail art, manicures and pedicures for men are much more straightforward: The aim is to simply cut, buff, and moisturize. Well-groomed hands and feet can be key indicators of how much attention a man pays to his overall health. Also, nobody wants to shake hands with someone who has rough cuticles and sharp nails! Most men’s spas offer manicure and pedicure services as part of their basic menu.
3. Wax On, Wax Off
Men’s waxing might sound unnecessary, but removing male body hair with this method is both safe and more common than people may think. With less risk of the skin irritation that can come with shaving, men’s waxing can be a much more effective—albeit slightly more painful—way of manscaping, and it can be done pretty much anywhere on the body.
