Common Men’s Grooming Errors

Men’s grooming is a highly personal activity and as such, you might argue that there is no right and wrong way of doing it. However, there are things you could be doing to make life more difficult for yourself or affecting the results you get. Here, then are some common grooming errors:

Shave and then shower – When you take a shower, the hot steam loosens pores in the skin. Try to shave after the shower and you should find it easier and more comfortable. You might even notice an improvement in your skin as open pores will remove more impurities.

Putting on too much aftershave – If you whack it on with gusto be aware that you might be overpowering to others, making them sneeze or cough. Not really the effect you’re looking for! A couple of light sprays is all that is required.


Overlooking nails – Neglected nails are very off putting, whether you’re shaking hands or getting your feet out for the summer. Too long or layers of dirt under the nails is a definite no-no so consider a manicure or pedicure!

Overdoing the hair gel – Much simpler to add a bit more if you haven’t got enough than to wash it all out and start over. Work from the back to front to avoid a greasy hairline and always warm it up in your hands before use.
