Men’s grooming products – I bet you’re using the wrong ones.

Gentlemen, the bottom line is this…

You don’t know how to shave, wash our face, or spray on cologne… even though you’ve been doing it for years.

How do you know what you’re doing wrong, and how do you fix it?

1. Letting A Woman (Or Anyone) Choose For You

I know it sounds a little harsh, but women are not at fault here.

It’s us.

We tend to rely on our wives and girlfriends far too much when it comes to choosing men’s grooming products. It might be out of laziness or insecurity.

Men put a lot of pressure on their significant others to make choices they should be making themselves. Stop this habit.

The fact is this: No one knows your body except you.

Only you can know whether you deal with oily skin, need a closer shave, or have thin hair. If you want results, you need to set the time aside to research ingredients and make the right choice. What works for others may not work for you.

 

2. Confusing Laziness With Brand Loyalty

At the end of the day, men are creatures of habit.

I’m willing to bet your “go-to” shaving cream was the one you chose when you walked into the convenience store at age 17.

It’s done a mediocre job since then, but you’re content.

You call yourself “loyal.”

If you’re going to be loyal to a brand, choose one that gets used by top athletes worldwide. Click here to discover VITAMAN’s natural men’s grooming products.

This is a fallacy. When it comes to men’s grooming products, you need to find a brand you genuinely love.

My advice? Research brands that promote honesty with their products. We’re talking grooming products that don’t confuse you with weird names.

This is one of the many reasons I’m proud of my company VITAMAN – we’re straightforward about what we put in each bottle.

 

3. Thinking Modern Tools Are Better

Let’s use shaving as an example.

The safety razor has been around since the 19th century and we’ve stopped using it. Cartridge razors dominate the market.

However, the safety razor will give you a closer shave and reduce irritation. It’s also less expensive and wasteful. Did you know that cartridge razors produce millions of tons worth of waste a year?

Why do we stick to cartridge razors then? The answer is convenience.

It all goes back to point number 2 – laziness. Gents, if you put in the time to find the best tool, your body will thank you for it.

For an even closer shave, consider the venerable straight razor. However, you can hurt yourself if you don’t use proper shaving technique. Be careful.

 

4. Thinking Soap Is Just Soap

A lot of guys have a tendency to use the same soap on their bodies, head, and face.

This is a mistake.

Our skin is not the same across the board. Let’s take Lava soap for instance – it’s designed specifically for men’s hands. I tried using it on my body, and it was so rough that I damaged my skin.

You need to find gentler soaps according to your needs.

An example: Our facial skin is generally more sensitive than the rest of the skin on the body.

Some brands make natural soaps that handle both skin types, but you will most likely need to find a specific cleanser for your face.

Think about it – if you’re trying to make your skin better by washing it, destroying it with the wrong soap defeats the purpose.

 

5. Not Paying Attention To Ingredients

The stuff they put in men’s grooming products today is abhorrent.

Let’s take shaving cream for instance.

A can of Barbasol contains ingredients such as butane and propane.  If you can throw it in a fire and blow it up, you probably shouldn’t put it on your face.

Oftentimes you’ll see formaldehyde in shampoo. Yeah, the carcinogen we use to preserve corpses.

Lavender is used in skincare products to reduce acne. It can also be added to shampoo in order to promote hair growth.

While cheap to produce, these can damage your body in the long run, with side effects ranging from skin irritation to full-blown hair loss.

Men’s grooming products that come with natural ingredients provide more than cleaning, they provide health benefits as well.

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Vitamin E, and Eucalyptus Oil are examples of natural ingredients that heal the skin while strengthening it.

These are just some of the ingredients used by VITAMAN – we use nothing but the BEST in our natural men’s grooming products.

 

6. Not Using Products In Conjunction

Using a facial cleanser, exfoliant, and moisturizer in a routine will get you more results than simply applying the cleanser.

Exfoliation thoroughly scrubs the skin by removing dead skin cells. The moisturizer maintains the oil balance and fight off wrinkles.

Why do I emphasize the use of shaving oil before shaving cream?

Oil is hydrophobic, meaning it won’t mix with the water base in shaving cream. This means you get two layers of skin protection and a smoother shave.

Are you seeing a pattern?

Using multiple products THE RIGHT WAY doubles down on the results.

 

7. Not Having A Routine

There are several benefits to having an effective grooming routine…

The most obvious one is the reduced stress. Once you have grooming down to a science, you never have to worry about it again (until you run out of products).

Secondly, a routine gives you a base from which to expand and improve.

Establishing a routine means you’ll never have to think about what’s next.

Let’s say you’ve mastered the art of shaving with the grain. You have the experience to start going AGAINST grain for an even closer shave.

You’ll learn that a safety razor does the job better than a simple cartridge razor – more blades mean more room for error. A cartridge razor could also pull your stubble too far over and produce ingrown hairs.

Experience is key, and a routine gives you a solid foundation to practice.

 

8. Not Using The Right Tools

You wouldn’t use a sledgehammer on a drywall nail, right?

Then why would you use clippers on your nails? Clippers – especially cheap ones – will crush the nail rather than cut it. Before you know it, you got a bigger problem on your hands.

The right tool for the job would be a simple file or nail scissors. The file can grind the nail down (remember to file in one direction) while the scissors cut effectively.

The same applies to every aspect of grooming, gentlemen – do your research.

 

9. Never Choosing A Signature Scent

How do you find a signature fragrance?

Simple, you go with what you like.

Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford is controversial, but a confident man can rock it.

It doesn’t matter how bold it is, whether or not your wife loves it, or what your friends say.

Your signature scent is your own – it’s meant to imbue YOU with confidence.

Conduct a search. Once you fall in love with a fragrance, don’t think too hard on it. Get that bottle!

 

10. Using Deodorant

That’s right, I said it.

Most deodorants and antiperspirants come packed with harmful chemicals like aluminum. This actually blocks your pores to stop sweating altogether. Why would you want that, knowing that sweat naturally cleanses the body?
