8 Grooming Tips for Indian Boys to Look Handsome
1. Be the gentleman you are supposed to be
We decided to top this list with something that you can change or adapt in your behavior to make you the handsome guy we know deep down you are. What good would it do to look like Chris Hemsworth while you act like a prick?
Adopt some chivalry, respect the women around you (and we mean all of them, truly and genuinely) not just the ones you like, and start respecting and listening to your parents. Your actions are going to go a long way in making you look handsome as ever. If you are handsome in your mind it will reflect in your appearance as well.
No, it is not something that only women must do because you are the rugged, rough and tough guy. Chuck those age-old gender stereotypes in the bin and pick up that bottle of moisturizer. Use a mild face wash to cleanse your face daily, more so if you traverse the roads on your bike, for all that dust and grime builds up on your face causing pimples.
And no, you don’t need to pilfer a face wash from your mum or sister’s closet for there are face washes out there that are specially made for men, keeping in mind their skin textures and needs. Once you have washed your face apply a moisturizer on your face. Repeat the process once at night again to maintain the pH balance of your skin.
3. Make That Salon Appointment
Not one person will shoot a second glance at you when you step into that salon for your facial and face pack appointment, for that is the norm of the day. Facials cleanse your face of the pollutants that get collected on it over time and a face mask gives it firmness. Just like women need their salon time, so do men. While getting the facial done get rid of the under eye circles too that crept in when you were pulling all-nighters.
4. Use A Sunscreen
Using one would not make you look like a girl. In fact, it would protect you from all sorts of skin cancers. It will help your skin in looking supple and healthy while blocking the ultraviolet rays which gradually destroys the collagen in your skin. Dab on that sunscreen before you step out of the house every day and repeat it once during the day.
The skin on a man’s body is tougher than that of a woman‘s but it still needs the SPF protection. Plus, wrinkles look good but you really have to be Clint Eastwood to pull them off and still look sexy.
5. Groom those nails
We are not asking you to paint them red but your nails should be neatly trimmed and clean at all times. Men are increasing booking salon appointments today for a manicure and pedicure. Your first handshake makes a lasting impression on the other person and you want it to be a good one.
6. Shave It Like a Pro
If you can see something that resembles the growth in the savannas after you have shaved, you really need to pay more attention to how you shave. Change your razor blades when they get blunt and make it a point to shave as and when required.
If you are going the beard way, make sure its well-trimmed and maintained well. Keep an aftershave handy for those nicks and cuts that might happen. You don’t want to sport a ‘just into a fight’ look on your face.
7. Scrap That Crap From Your Plate
Eating healthy is what the youth are doing, and we have Instagram to thank for it. Unless you post a picture of you eating a healthy meal with the hashtag #foodporn, you have not arrived on the social media platform. When you eat healthily it reflects on your skin, hair, and body. Even if you are sweating it out in the gym, does not mean that you pile that plate up with fried chicken.
8. Hit the Gym
Last but not the least, hit the gym or take up any form of exercise to keep yourself fit. It could be anything from gymming or sparring to taking up Zumba classes.
