For men in their 20s there’s two types of grooming that you need to be aware of – amateur grooming and professional grooming.
Professional grooming on one hand could mean shelling out a wad of cash every couple of weeks to get a top class shave and a haircut, but there’s another side to it that’s often ignored – developing good grooming habits through your 20s that will benefit you in the long term.
There are many, many things you can do now, but we’ll start with the most practical ones that can be honed on a relatively frugal budget.
This is probably the most obvious fact on the list, and yet it’s often overlooked. Shaving is one thing, shaving well is a whole different beast.
In order to shave well, you need to slow it down and take your time.
If you have a busy schedule in the mornings, take some time out the night before to make sure you’re giving yourself the correct treatment. Check out our other article about how you can start shaving better.
No, we’re not talking about your stocks. Your skin is probably the most precious commodity you have, and you’re in full control of how you want it to look. This means not short changing yourself when it comes to the products you’re using on it.
Quality products, lucky for you, don’t always mean a dent in your wallet. Go for alcohol-free shaving gels, moisturizers that suit your skin and most of all invest in a good quality blade.
We’re not talking eating nothing but salads, while sacrificing on the little joys in life. No, it’s possible to maintain a good, well balanced diet while also eating healthy.
The basic idea is this – get in your nutrients as much as possible in a short amount of time. What this means is essentially this: eat two healthy meals in the day filled with green vegetables, proteins and some healthy fats.
If you’re not completely satisfied by this, treat yourself to a slice of cake or some ice cream at the end of the day, but limit yourself to just one slice or scoop.
Balance is possible, but you’re the only one who can keep yourself in check.
It’s a proven fact now that going to the gym, or general exercise is directly linked to an improvement in your mood and reduction of depression.
The 20s are a tough time in everyone’s life, when you’re not losing your relationship with the girl of your dreams, you’re wondering about your career path and if the work you’re doing is meaningful enough.
I get it, it’s tough, but that’s life.
Doing yourself a major favour by exercising regularly will do you a world of wonder. After getting over the first few weeks of the plateau, you will start to feel very, very good. Not only that, the chance of an injury or worse diseases in your later life mitigates, and you will actually lead a much happier life.
