MESSY IS NOT MASCULINE: WHY GOOD GROOMING BOOSTS YOUR CONFIDENCE AND HOW TO DO IT
Confidence plays a big part in how you ‘show up’ to your life. If you aren’t feeling your best, you probably won’t be achieving your best. Whether that’s in relationships or in your career.
Picture this scenario: You see another man walking down the street- he’s got personal style, great hair and his grooming down to a fine art. You think to yourself; this man has his stuff amazingly put together.
Now, this may not be the case, but his outward appearance suggests otherwise because… self-confidence is RADIATING. We found these simple grooming tips can definitely help boost your confidence and are a great step towards supporting a positive mindset. By the end of this article, they’ll be a team of us groomed guys bouncing down the street with self-confidence.
1. GETTING RID OF DARK CIRCLES
There are many reasons why dark circles under the eyes occur, including genetics, age and a poor sleep schedule. We recommend an under-eye concealer with SPF to reduce the risk of the dark circles getting worse by the sun’s UV rays.
Check out our EYE EYE CAPTAIN Under Eye Concealer to help you reduce appearance of dark bags and puffiness around the eye area.
2. EAT GOOD TO FEEL GOOD
A simple, yet extremely effective, way to improve self-esteem. This seems an obvious one but often people get caught up in all of the many products for their skin, hair and beard on offer- that its simplicity is lost. Introduce superfoods containing Vitamin C and Omega-3 into your diet; these have been shown to improve overall brain health and certain types of mood disorders.
Healthy foods that may boost your mood:
- Fatty Fish
- Dark chocolate (don’t worry it’s not all the greens)
- Fermented food
Why not try a new recipe that incorporates one of these ingredients?
3. TRIM THOSE NOSE/ EAR HAIRS
The majority of people you interact with will be looking at your face (hopefully) so we’re looking out for your best interest here. Take it from us… Invest in a good electrical trimmer sooner rather than later!
4. MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE
You may have heard this before, but we’re going to say it again because moisturising is very IMPORTANT… It’s one of the best things you can do for your skin. A moisturiser can help your face age slower; skin feel softer and stay hydrated throughout the day.
TOP TIP: Don’t use a body lotion on your face as the skin is thinner and therefore more irritable than the rest of your body. In order to reduce the risk of breakouts or irritation- buy a moisturiser that is specific for the face!
Our LET'S FACE IT BB Tinted Moisturiser contains SPF25 which helps to defend against environmental stress. This means it reducing your risk of ageing, wrinkles and dryness. Shop here
5. INVEST IN A CLEANSER
Don’t fall victim to the myth you can use the same soap on your face and body. This is NOT the case. The skin on your face is a lot more sensitive and complex than the rest of your body. Investing in a daily face cleanser can help you feel refreshed and confident for the rest of the day.
Deep cleanse once a week using a mask to absorb excess oils and unclog your pores. We suggest looking for products with detoxifying Kaolin Clay, like our mess free YOU DO THE MASK Purifying Clay Mask.
