When it comes to grooming, most men are lazy. Now, we'll get our hair cut and shave, but the majority of the time it stops there. For some, it may go a little bit further, and I've found that a lot of men are stealing beauty products from their ladies. This can be a good and bad thing because men's skin is thicker, oilier, hairier, and ages differently. But as I continue to dabble in and research grooming products, I'm finding that there are a lot of similarities in the products women are using, and they can be beneficial for us guys (even though our skin is different). So, if you're a guy looking to improve the look of your hair, skin, or nails, gives these products a try at least once - the results may surprise you.

One of the most important features and the first thing noticed is a persons' smile, and aside from healthy teeth, you should have healthy lips.

If a manicure isn't your thing, you can still keep your hands looking clean and your cuticles looking moisturized by applying an oil twice daily.

I've said it before; I'm not a fan of men in makeup unless you're on a set or working in front of a camera. When it comes to certain products, like concealer, I recommend it. Concealer doesn't add any color or texture to your skin (unless you want it to); what it does is even your skin tone so little imperfections are covered without the use of makeup.
Clearly, I don't have any hair, LOL, but I've heard nothing but great things about dry shampoo. If you're on the go and don't have time to do your hair, dry shampoo should be your go to. It removes the excess grease to give you the look of fresh clean locks.
Better for the Summer months, hydrating spray gives your skin the extra hydration it needs. From a lack of sleep to the natural elements, rehydrating your skin throughout the day will wake your skin up and have you looking refreshed.
Primers for men is something I covered on the site a few days ago, and this remains as one of the products I believe men should be using. You can benefit from using this by applying a small amount to the T-Zone daily to reduce the appearance of oily skin.
Brows shape your face, and over recent years, men have finally started to pay attention to them and get them sculpted. Whether you're getting them sculpted or not, brow enhancer will keep your hairs in place; I prefer a clear brow gel or a defining pencil or colored gel.
