All guys want to look good, but the fact of the matter is that most of us don’t want to spend a whole lot of time primping and preening in the bathroom mirror.
Fear not though, because I’ve put together some of the best male grooming hacks to help you look amazing without spending more time than necessary on your appearance.
Shave with coconut oil
Whether you’re looking to take all your facial hair off or you want to achieve one of the best beard styles 2020 had to offer, switch from shaving foam to coconut oil and the process will be a lot simpler and smoother. When you shave with coconut oil, your razor glides effortlessly across your face, moisturising as it goes, saving you so much time and effort that it’s unreal.
Soothe nicks with lip balm
If you happen to cut yourself shaving, which is pretty unlikely if you’re using coconut oil, rub a little lip balm on your wound and it will seal it pretty darn fast by encouraging a clot to form, which means you can get on with your day without having to worry about bleeding all over the place.
Clean your ears with olive oil
While we’re on the subject of oil, instead of using cotton buds to clean your ears switch to olive oil instead. Not only is it by far the safer option, but it’s also faster and more effective, Simply place a couple of drops of warm olive oil into your ear and it will loosen any wax, which will then naturally fall out of your ears, no more effort required. Well, you’re probably going to want to clean it up!
Banish frizz with conditioner
Conditioner isn’t just for making your hair smooth and shiny, you can also use it to get rid of frizz fast. Simply rub a small (I mean tiny) amount of your favourite conditioner through your frizzy hair for an instantly tamed look that also smells great.
Banish bad breath with parsley
If you need to freshen your breath in a hurry, but you don’t have time to brush, forget chewing gum, chew on some parsley instead. It’s far more effective at getting rid of bad odours, including the dreaded garlic and it tastes pretty good too.
Waxing isn’t just for women, and although waxing your excess body hair will take some time, once it’s done, you won’t have to worry about it again for a long time, which means you won’t need to waste time every day plucking nose hairs or taming your chest curls. It’s a no-brainer really. Oh, and having a professional wax is probably wise if you’ve never tried it before.
Drink more water
If you drink more water, your skin will be naturally more clear and blemish-free, which means you won’t need to spend quite so much time on your skincare regime, It will also leave you feeling great too.
Now you know a few simple grooming hacks, you can look your best without the effort!
