Kindness, sense of humour and intelligence. These are undeniably the top three qualities any womxn looks for in a man. I say, add one more to that list. Boy, do we appreciate well-groomed men!

To all the men who coyly glance at their reflection each time on passing a shop window (we see you!). The fact that you’re putting in the effort to look a certain way is a major turn-on for us. But then are you doing it right? Getting too comfortable with your usual grooming routine can sometimes also sound the death knell for your dapper looks. 

Fortunately, this is avoidable. So sit back and read up as we list down 7 toe-to-face grooming faux-pas we wish you stopped making. Thank us later! 

1. You’re not moisturising before bed. 

If it’s true then you have no idea just how much you’re making your skin suffer. After a long and stressful day, the best way to make up to your skin is by giving it a good wash and locking in the moisture. At night, your skin goes into recovery mode and the cells repair faster than the day, making sure it doesn’t age. So invest in a solid night cream and a body moisturiser and get massaging!

2. If you’re doing the ears, you may as well take a pass at the nose. 

How hard it is to spare just thirty seconds with your trimmer? And while you’re getting rid of all the vegetation on your ears, don’t miss out on the nostrils. Wait, you think no one is looking at the overly grown hair in there? Sorry to pop the bubble, but your scraggly danglers are scaring us away! 

3. Please keep it trimmed, there too!

We’re all living for the beard! But flaunting hair down there might not be attractive for a lot of women. Of course, it’s your body, so you get to decide how to treat your private body parts. The trick here is to keep it tidy and shaped, so not only your partner is more comfortable, but even you feel hygienic. The Philips body groomer is your go-to tool for this. It gives desired trimming results in practically no time. And it’s super convenient to use. 

4. Is that oil dripping from your hair? 

So you’re that person who does everything extra? Yeah, it doesn’t apply to your hair gel though. Or for that matter your beard oil either. Trust us, overdoing it is never the answer. So stick to minimalism for everything and you’re good to go. 

5. How many years have you been wearing that fragrance for? We assume 100!

We love it when you smell good. It can make us feel a hundred different emotions all at once. But the last time I checked, it was 1894 when you first bought the bottle and have been using it since. Might we suggest you opt for a new scent this time to bring in a fresh change?

6. So you think you’re tougher than the sun eh?

Yes we know, you all want to be tough! But don’t fight the sun. The UV rays will get you. Foregoing sun protection is the biggest blunder you can commit. In fact, you should be wearing at least SPF 20 on a daily basis to prevent your skin from burning.

7. Are you forgetting your feet?

Of course, you are. Or how else do you explain the cracked heels and dirty toenails? We all tend to care for our feet lesser than any other part of our body, but that is no excuse to keep it unclean. Dipping your feet in warm water and exfoliating them with a filer every now and then is actually a pretty good idea. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to clip your nails as well.

Grooming is such an important part of everyone’s life. Just beware of repeating these grooming mishaps and you’re good to go! And when you have an efficient tool like the Philips electric body groomer by your side, you have nothing to worry about. 

The best part about the body groomer is that it comes with a skin protector which makes it safer than scissors, razors or blades. It is also bi-directional, so you don’t have to worry about getting any rashes, cuts or nicks while clearing out any corners. Check out the product and own your grooming game.
