Grooming is often overlooked but unless you actually want to smell like a sweaty racehorse, you should pay at least a little attention to your personal hygiene. Each person’s level of hygiene, cleanliness and grooming is not only a unique aspect of who s/he is, but is also influenced by upbringing, daily schedule or routine, comfort, convenience, culture, etc.
Male grooming is one of the fastest growing sectors of the cosmetics industry, with more companies launching skincare products for men and some going as far as to launch cosmetic products as well. With this current trend becoming more and more popular, it’s likely to create a bigger industry and more options for the man who wants to take care of his appearance and any body hair issues.
The global market for men’s grooming is set to continue with steady growth in the course of the next five years, as a widening acceptance of men’s toiletry and cosmetics products is fostered through media exposure.
Grooming is not about the most expensive toiletries, the most high priced clothes or the gold and glitter, it’s about a sense of your value; that you matter; that you took time to look good; that you polished your shoes; that you added some make-up; whatever it was to complete your picture, you made an effort. Personal grooming is the process of being clean, tidy and having a neat appearance. Male grooming is no longer something of the future, it is here and now and more and more men take pride in their appearance and like to treat themselves every now and again.
Although it might not be something your father ever passed on to you, good grooming is a component of dressing for success, as well as playing an important role in attracting the interest of a partner. Grooming is like the icing on a cake; it enhances, but it’s not the defining factor.
Grooming is about getting a haircut, keeping the underarm clean, getting a pedicure, manicure, sometimes a wax – it’s about being clean. An important part of mens grooming is a good haircut. It’s also incomplete without taking particular care of the hands and nails. For privacy reasons, grooming is something that many people prefer to do themselves, and being able to deal with some basic grooming like hair brushing and drying, clipping your own finger and toenails and other similar tasks is much easier if you have a little assistance from the right tools.
