Are you tired of skin rashes and burns? Shave right after your shower, when your facial hair is completely softened from the water. If you want to save time and get an even better shave, try our Fogless Shower Mirror with Squeegee. It stays fog-free so you can shave right in the shower. It includes a built-in shelf to hold your razor or shaving brush. Shaving in the shower also keeps your sink free from those little hairs that never seem to go away. (Happy wife, happy life!)
Heal shaving nicks with lip balm
A styptic stick is the drugstore standard for healing shaving nicks, but you likely don’t have one handy. Lip balm, on the other hand, is readily available. The waxy texture can help staunch the blood and help your skin heal. Just use one without fragrance or color tint. 😉
Remove hair, salt, and water from your razor to prevent oxidation and rusting which can damage and dull your razor blades. To preserve the life of your razor, you could stand there and dry it with a hair dryer for several minutes or simply toss it into your BLEW Razor Blade Dryer. Your blade will stay smooth and sharp, extending the life of your razor blade by up to one year.
Deal with unsightly nose, ear, and other random hairs by trimming them down to size. Our Nose Hair Trimmer with LED Light painlessly removes gangly hairs. The rotary cutting system allows hairs to enter the trimmer tip from the top and from the sides, perfect for catching those rogue hairs.
Use moisturizer daily
Without a proper moisturizer, your skin will become dull and dry. It can lose its elasticity and protective powers. Hot showers, harsh cleansers, and heat can also contribute to dry skin. Keep your skin hydrated every day by applying a moisturizer after showering and washing your face. You’ll get rid of the itch and prevent your skin from flaking. It can also make you look younger, something most of us can appreciate.
Regular haircuts keep you looking polished and feeling good. Can’t get to the barber? Keep hair groomed between appointments with our Deluxe Rechargeable Hair, Body, Mustache, and Beard Trimmer. The 4 comb heads allow you to trim hair to different lengths. It’s also great for getting rid of that excessive body hair.
Put an end to frizz
Choose a shampoo and conditioner designed to keep your mane from frizzing. A quick blow dry in the morning is also a fast and easy way to tame fuzz and a strong hold gel or mousse will keep your hair in place.
Say goodbye to stained teeth by brushing for two minutes twice a day with an electric toothbrush and a whitening toothpaste. Studies show electric brushes can get you better results than manual toothbrushes. Our Professional Sonic Toothbrush has 31,000 pulses per minute, a 2 minute timer, and every 30 seconds it signals when it’s time to move to the next quadrant of your mouth.
Do you pop mints and brush your teeth, but still have funky breath? Bad breath could be the result of food trapped between your teeth or in pockets below the gumline. A water flosser, such as our Poseidon Oral Irrigator, produces a stream of water to gently clean in-between teeth and below your gumline. There are three operating modes: normal, soft, and pulse, and it has two tips for multiple users. The Poseidon Oral Irrigator also comes with an inductive charger so it’s ready to use when you need it.
No one wants to see cracked, dry feet. Not only are they an eyesore, they can be painful to walk around on. Treat your feet to regular grooming with an electric Callus Remover Foot File. The grinding head quickly and painlessly removes dead skin and calluses, leaving your feet soft and smooth in minutes. For the best results, follow that up with a thick moisturizer before slipping on your socks.
A uni-brow or long crazy eyebrow hairs make you seem unkempt. You don’t need ta professional waxing, but it’s a good idea pluck and trim until you have two eyebrows. For excessively long hairs, use a clean spare toothbrush to brush brow hairs toward your forehead. Trim away the excess hair with a pair of Stainless Steel Flathead Scissors. Use the brush to smooth your brows back down again.
Mom was right – your nails should be short and clean. It’s easiest to trim them after a shower when they are softened and easier to manage. Trim them once a week and be sure to hit the dry skin around the nail bed with some moisturizer before bedtime. Men’s grooming most under used tool. Our Stainless Steel Nail Nippers will give you the perfect cut and easily take care of any hangnails. For more nail or toe trimmers, we have you covered.
Kiss chapped lips goodbye
Brush away dead skin on your lips with an extra toothbrush. Simply dampen it and rub it over your lips to exfoliate away those dried bits of skin. Follow up with a clear lip balm to keep lips soft. If you’ll be out in the sun, make sure the balm has at least SPF 15. And steer clear of menthol formulas since they can irritate your lips.
Whether you want to prevent pimples, blackheads, ingrown hairs or get rid of dry skin, regular exfoliation is the way to go. You don’t need to do it every day, two or three times a week will suffice. Our Facial Brush Skin Cleansing System is an easy way to get your face clean and scrub away dead skin. As a bonus, it comes with a brush head for your body and a pumice head for your feet, keeping you groomed from head to toe.
Banish bags and dark circles
Everyone feels sleep deprived from time to time, but there’s no reason to go out looking haggard. Chill two spoons in the freezer for a few minutes then place them over your closed eyes. Relax for a few minutes and let the cold get rid of the swelling.
Grooming can be unpleasant and uncomfortable – especially for guys. Thankfully, you don’t need to lock yourself in the bathroom for hours to look your best. A simple and effective daily grooming routine, along with regular maintenance, will keep you looking sharp. Your confidence will get a boost, and you’ll feel better about yourself.
