The top 13 grooming mistakes men make.
So some of these mistakes, you might not even know that you’re making them, and the thing is, though, that all of these mistakes are really off-putting. So let’s get into what those mistakes are so that you’re aware of them and you can fix them.
1. Unkept body hair.
So I’m talking about your chest, arms, legs, and down there. You want to make sure always your body hair nicely trimmed.
But use as a one or two on a clipper and just trim your body hair every three to four months.
2. Unruly eyebrows.
It’s really distracting when you’re talking to someone and their eyebrow hairs are just out of control. They’re really long and they’ve got like a little unibrow thing going on.
Be sure to just trim your eyebrow hair, and if you do have a little bit of hair in between, it’s all right, just go pluck them or get them waxed, but definitely don’t shape your eyebrows, you don’t want to look super feminine.
3.Not taking care of your skin.
So you always want to present the best possible version of yourself and that includes your face. So if you’re struggling with acne or oily or dry skin, or even just premature aging, it’s really important to have a skincare routine in place.
So you wanna wash and moisturize your face every single day and if you are going to be out in the sun, you need to wear sunscreen, because that’s really gonna protect you from, you know, more wrinkles and sunspots down the road.
Which really just makes you look very sloppy and it’s very hard to style overgrown hair. So if you have a shorter hairstyle, you wanna get your haircut done every two to three weeks.
If you have a slightly longer hairstyle, go about every three to four weeks, and if you have more of a shaped or buzzed hairstyle, then make sure to get your haircut done every couple days up to a week.
5.Noticeable ear and nose hair.
So this is something that at least from a woman’s perspective, it’s really gross when you’re talking to someone, and you seem like a little straggler coming out of the nose or like ear hair.
Every couple of days, look in the mirror, just look up your nose, see if anything’s peeking out, and trim it. There are trimmers for the nose and ear hair specifically that makes it so easy to do. So take care of that so that you’re not distracting someone with your noticeable nose and ear hair.
6.Having unkempt facial hair.
It’s again, really distracting and very off-putting when you are talking to someone and their facial hair is so long that it’s starting to just creep into, you know, their lips or to cover their lips.
If you’re gonna have a beard or facial hair of some sort, make sure to trim it nicely, you know, especially around the lips area. And if you want a little bit of stubble or whatnot, you gotta make sure to shave your neck. It just keeps the entire look, you know, very clean and fresh and distraction-free.
7.Dirty, greasy, ungroomed hair.
When I, this, I feel like hair is almost one of them, especially dirty and greasy hair is one of those immediate, like stomach turners for me. Like, I just get so grossed out and I want to like vomit when I see dirty, greasy hair. You really need to make sure that if before you step out in public, just wash your hair and style it, so that you look like a, you know, self-respecting man.
8.Bloody gums or just (beep) in your teeth
The grooming mistake. It’s so gross to even say it. I know bloody gums! But you got to make sure to go to the dentist regularly so that, you know, you have nice teeth cleaning every six months and always just take some floss or at least toothpicks with you, so that after meals you can just like excuse yourself, go to the bathroom and if you see anything in your teeth, you can get it out before you start talking to more people and they start noticing like, ooh, you have some pepper in there.
This is gonna repel everyone around you and that is bad breath.
Definitely, this is very easily avoidable, you just got to brush your teeth regularly, and if, you know, you’re feeling that your mouth not tasting very fresh, pop in a mint before you’re gonna be talking to someone.
So either you’re not taking enough showers and you’re not using deodorant, or you’re just dousing yourself in cologne. So just make sure that you’re taking showers regularly, using deodorant, and be very light-handed with your cologne.
Numero cuatro is dirty, long fingernails and toenails, and it also goes for just really jagged, short, bitten nails as well.
Gotta make sure to have your nails nicely trimmed and cleaned because nobody wants to shave or touch someone’s hands or be around someone that has like these gross, gnarly-looking nails.
11.Not moisturizing enough.
one of the grooming mistakes that men make is just not moisturizing enough. So we’ve already talked about facial skin, but now I’m talking about your body. So specifically, your hands, elbows, knees, and feet.
it does not look great and it doesn’t feel great when you’re shaking someone’s hand and their hands are just so dry and chapped and cracked or they have really ashy bumpy elbows and knees.
And it’s something that’s very easily, like solvable. All you got to do is after you take a shower, grab some lotion, plop it in your hands, just moisturize your hands, put some on your elbows, knees, and feet, you’re good to go, you’re not gonna look like a dried-up prune.
It just drives me crazy when I see a guy, you know, so well dressed, hair perfectly combed, and then he turns his head away, and boom! It’s like a hairy neck, right there, looking at you, and it’s such an easy thing to fix
So don’t wait till your next haircut appointment for your barber to take care of your neck hair, you want to just every couple days when you’re shaving, you know, just give it a couple of little swipes back there, so it’s nice and clean, and then you’re good to go.
13.Dry, cracked lips.
It is so incredibly distracting when you are talking to someone and their lips are just peely, dry, bloody, kind of cracked. It’s so gross. It’s like you’re so hard to concentrate. If your lips are feeling a little dried out, use some ChapStick, problem solved.
