The 10 Best Grooming Tips for Men

The 10 Best Grooming Tips for Men | King C. Gillette UK

Every man’s grooming routine looks different; not everyone trims their eyebrows, not all guys trim their nasal hair, and more could definitely be using beard care products.

Whether your grooming routine starts with skincare, features trimming, tidying and a post-shave routine, or it doesn’t go much further than occasional shaving, there’s more we could all be doing to get into good grooming habits as part of our commitment to self-care.

Here are ten of our best grooming tips that we think all men should adopt. If all ten tips feel a bit too much in comparison to where you are with your current routine, try to work in one or two and see if you notice a difference in the way that you feel.

1. Create a Grooming Routine

They say it takes just three weeks to form a new habit, so try to make sure you’re following the same rituals every morning as part of your self-care routine, and you’ll soon be in new grooming habits.

This could be as easy as:

  • Wash your face (in the sink or shower)
  • Trim your beard, using the King C. Gillette Beard Trimmer
  • Apply a little beard balm or beard oil
  • Get dressed so you’re looking sharp for the day ahead – even if you’re working from home, as it’s all about being in the right mindse

2. Cleanse Your Face

Washing your face isn’t just a matter of basic hygiene; it can also leave you feeling refreshed, awake and ready to take on the day.

Our King C. Gillette Beard and Face Wash is a great 2-in-1 product to cleanse both your beard and face, thanks to a formula that’s designed to remove dirt, oil and debris such as dead skin cells.

This cleansing face wash and beard shampoo features refreshing menthol, as well as extracts of argan oil, avocado oil and coconut water, alongside patented facial hair conditioning technology.

Get into the habit of using this first thing in the morning, and you’ll soon be on your way to better grooming habits.

3. Keep Your Beard Well-Trimmed

A straggly beard can be a clear sign that you’ve been neglecting your grooming routine and perhaps not taking care of yourself as well as you could have been, so keep yours in check with the King C. Gillette Beard Trimmer.

Depending on how quickly your facial hair grows, you might not need to use this every day, but make sure you’re trimming at least a few times a week to keep your facial hair looking sharp.

With Braun technology, a choice of three combs and 11 different length settings, our beard trimmer is incredibly versatile for all your beard grooming needs.

4. Condition Your Facial Hair

It’s not enough to just trim your facial hair; for a beard that screams ‘well-groomed’, you want to make sure it’s conditioned too.

Using a little bit of our King C. Gillette Beard Balm before you leave the house in the morning can help to keep your beard feeling soft and conditioned. Use it as a leave-in conditioner or a wash-off mask – whatever works for you.

Tackle stray or coarse beard hairs with this lightweight formula, which combines expert hair conditioning with argan oil, shea butter and cocoa butter.

5. Comb Your Hair, Comb Your Beard 

Would you head out in the morning without combing your hair? Make sure you’re combing your beard too.

Brushing your beard can help it to stay looking neat, while also helping to prevent beard knots, which can look messy and cause frustration.

6. Trim Your Nasal Hair

Did you know that nasal hair can grow at a rate of 0.35mm per day? An alarming stat.

Nasal hair probably wasn’t something you had to worry about too much in your younger years, but as we get older, nasal hair can unfortunately become more of a problem.

Some nasal hair is important for hygiene and health reasons, but you don’t want it visibly sticking out of your nose, so keep it in check with your beard trimmer.

7. Wear Sunscreen, Every Day

Sunscreen shouldn’t just be something that comes out when you’re on holiday or we’re in the middle of a heatwave. Instead, putting on a sunscreen or moisturiser with SPF should be part of your everyday grooming routine.

8. Look After Your Lips

Cold weather in particular can have a big impact on your lips, leaving them feeling cracked and sore.

However, wearing lip balm can help – reapply it regularly throughout the day whenever you notice your lips starting to feel dry.

9. Keep Your Eyebrows in Check

Eyebrows aren’t there to be plucked to within an inch of their lives, but they’re not there to completely take over your face either – it’s all about finding the right balance.

10. Change Your Razor Blades Regularly

Dull, worn or damaged razor blades can stop you from being able to shave as well as you should be able to, and they can increase your risk of shaving cuts.

By signing up to a Gillette shaving subscription, you can make sure you never run out of fresh blades, as you’ll get them delivered direct to your door at your chosen frequency. Find out more here:
