Summer is here and if you have not yet changed your grooming habit to be in-step with the season then you better start now. Summer means extreme humidity and the sweltering rays of the sun. Of course summer also means vacations to those dreamy tropical islands, picnics in the park, ball games galore and just simply being laid back and lazy. All these need a total “summerization” of your grooming habit. Hairstyle change, fresher and crispier cologne, closer shave are only some of the things you can do to summarize your grooming habit.
If you’ve been keeping that hair long for the cold season, it’s about time you think of a shorter and cooler hairstyle. Long hair is fine for the colder months, for summer shorter cooler and sexier hairstyles that are low maintenance are de rigueur. Visit your barber now or a stylist in a hair salon for men and ask to be shown pictures of different types of short hair, from the men’s fade haircut, or even the buzz. Have that haircut on a Friday so that you’ll have the weekend to get used to your new hairstyle.
If you’re still using that sticky sludge of a hairstyling product for winter, it’s about time to shift to a lighter grooming crème that will provide texture and hold without weighing down your hair.
Whiskers and facial hair
If you are sporting a beard, a goatee or any type of facial hair and you’re averse to a close shave, at least trim those whisker or beards. .You should not allow your facial hair to become unruly. Cut it slightly shorter under the jaw since the hair grows thicker there than on the chin and cheeks. For a naked face, summer scruff is not really that attractive. In fact it looks untidy. For summer, keep a close and smooth shave every time.
Exfoliate! During the hot months, there will be more dead skin to slough off your skin so exfoliate at least several times a week. Look for a skin scrub that will buff your skin but won’t scour your face.
You need to shield your skin from the sun so use sun screen every time you leave the house. Look for a sun screen that is oil –free and grease-free. Your lips also need protection, so smear a lip balm that does not shine.
Being trendy is a hard work, so good luck!
