Grooming For Our Men

Most men are not cut out to care about their looks. It does not cross their minds to be something important, necessary or worth putting any effort. Left to them, a good bath is all they require to be ready for the day. Things like cosmetics, manicure, pedicure, massage and facials (facials? Yes, facials) are believed to be for women.

Well, they are wrong.  As  a wife and mother, you need to have well groomed husband and sons. This is important because, it reflects on how they look- the general appearance and even on their health!

You should encourage your man to take care of himself however, if it becomes a problem for him, then you should step in…This is how

Encourage and remind your man of regular haircuts (especially our boys). This could be weekly, bi-monthly or monthly depending on taste. The haircuts should suit their facial structures and purpose to enhance their looks. As we know, looks do matter in the world of today!

A monthly facials, manicure, pedicure and massage must be a rule for our men! In this stressful society, there is the need to clean up the pores from impurities to avoid break outs (pimples) and early wrinkles. Only facials can guarantee this result. This keeps the clean looking fresher and younger than expected. This can be done in the spa or in the comfort of your home! For home treatment, there are simple steps that would make a great difference in their appearance.

Of course ladies, we all know what manicure and pedicure are, right?

This keeps him looking clean (the nails, properly trimmed, the feet, soft and odourless). This can also be achieved in the comfort of your homes or at the spa, if you have got some extra cash to burn.

For the massage, oh my!   If your husband works as hard as mine, then he deserves this. This is a must! I hope you do know the benefits. This is not a luxury, if you can afford it. Let me tell you some of the benefits- complete relaxation, improved blood circulation, healthier and brighter skin. I tell you it outweighs the cost! This helps to manage stress a lot! Trust me!  It is very important, your man have massages regularly- monthly is fine or maybe once every two months is equally good.

Having discussed the needs, you may be wondering how to get him to keep the appointment at the spa since he is busy and not really very interested. Well, this is what you do.

Know his schedule about a month before the appointment. Tell him about the benefits and let him know you are going to book an appointment for him. Remind him at least a week to the appointment, so that he can get to adjust his schedule if he needs to.

If you can, get a home service treatment. That way, you don’t need to go to the spa rather, a beauty/masseur therapist is sent to the house. Mind you, this would cost a lot more than going to the spa.

The last option is for you to do it yourself. Just I have said earlier, there are simple steps to take that would make a huge difference in their (husband and sons) grooming. You can also apply these suggestions in taken care of yourself if you are not already doing that.

Grooming is essential; it goes a long way to boosting our confidence.

Let me know your results.

If you interested in the simple steps I mentioned or you are struggling with foot odour, dry tough scaly feet, shaving and barbing bumps, email me.

  1. So true. I am also a firm believer that men should spend some time and effort in grooming themselves. After all, any woman would be proud to have a well-groomed, well-dressed man at her side:)Just my cent cents

  2. It pays off at the end of the day. And it also gives confidence. Thanks
