Looking your best isn’t just about what you wear - a good grooming itinerary is essential to maintaining your all-round style.

However, with all the different pomades, pastes, creams and combs, the ins and outs of men’s grooming can seem difficult to navigate, let alone stay on top of.

Get started by narrowing it down to the basics and build your grooming routine from the ground up. Kick-start your new habits with these five simple (but must-do) tips:

1. Exfoliate twice a week: find an exfoliant or cleanser and get into the habit of using it every few days. After showering, gently rub exfoliant into your skin in circular motions then wipe off with a warm damp towel. It will remove invisible dirt and dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling noticeably softer.

2. On that note, moisturise daily: redness, dryness and premature ageing can often be attributed to dehydrated skin. If you’re shaving regularly, your skin can also become easily irritated, so top up the positive effects of your water intake with a hydrating moisturiser (but always remember to test first on a small patch of skin to avoid allergic reactions.)

3. Invest in good quality hair care: You don’t need to wash hair that regularly, particularly if you have short hair, but it’s important to make sure that when you do wash, you’re doing it with high quality shampoo and conditioner. So ditch the cheap stuff and invest in the right products for your hair, avoiding things like parabens, sulfates and silicone to avoid dry, brittle and dull hair (you’ll also be keeping the environment happy too.)

4. Always use mouthwash: ensure you’re capping off your dental routine of flossing and brushing with a rinse of mouthwash. Not only will it freshen your breath, but it’ll also help kill any bad bacteria. If you’re sensitive to the burning sensation you can get from mouthwash, opt for an alcohol-free version.

5. Don’t forget your feet: a solid grooming routine extends from your head all the way to your toes. So make sure you clip those toenails and buff away any dead skin as necessary. Regular foot hygiene will help ward off fungal infections, ingrown toenails and other nasty stuff, and your significant other will thank you too!
