In recent years, a modern man has come to realize himself as a sexual object and his behavior began to line up accordingly - he began to take care of himself, using for this all the achievements of modern cosmetology and perfumery.
Grooming is the active behavior of animals aimed at cleaning the surface of the body, that is, washing, licking wool, bathing, etc.
The word grooming in Russian is not used in relation to a person, in English this word has the same meaning for animals and people. In English, washing, hair care, nails, body care, etc. has the same name grooming.
The basis of the basics of men's grooming is the bathroom. There is the focal point of all his makeup. Washing in a bath with the help of laundry soap is in the distant past - now the water procedures are carried out by the strong half with the use of gels that provide not only the comfort and convenience of washing, but also caring care for the skin (with non-alkaline acidity of the product). Also, a sign of diligent skin care is the use of special lines of men's cosmetics for body care, consisting of all kinds of peels, scrubs, moisturizing milk, balms, creams, oils. Their main difference from women is only in the greater content of antiseptics.
Men's deodorants are something that even the most dense wahlaks will welcome. Mainly due to extensive publicity, but here that being said, any reason is good. There are more antimicrobial elements in male deodorants than in female deodorants. And of course, due to their natural laziness, men give more preference to antiperspirants that block sweating - an easy solution to the problem beckons.
Despite the general movement towards increased attention to their hygiene and skin care, one of the most neglected areas of men's care is the skin of the face. Because this, as a rule, requires special knowledge, and men have neither time nor interest to obtain it. But there are some simple guidelines. First you need to understand what type of skin a man has. This is usually visible with the naked eye. If the skin is prone to the appearance of acne, blackheads, shine is visible on the skin, then it is oily skin. In this case, it is worth normalizing the diet (no - fatty, fried, consume fruits, beans and nuts) and use special lotions.
Greasy creams should be avoided. If the skin often peels off, there is a feeling of tightness of the skin, then in this case - dry skin. Unfortunately, the number of people with normal skin can be counted on one hand, while men with combination skin are more common than others. Combination (mixed) skin is called if a characteristic shine is present on some parts of the face. Usually, the chin, nose, and eyebrows suffer from increased fat content, and the cheeks remain dry. It is worth noting that when determining your skin type, you must also take into account age. Oily skin can be an indicator of the youth of its owner, very dry - an attribute of the skin of a mature person. In this case, it makes sense to think about washing your face with milk (available in any men's line of every self-respecting cosmetic company). The consistency of such products is light and delicate, the products are quickly and well absorbed.
Complex preparations (shampoo, balm and conditioner in one bottle) are popular in men's hair care. The desire for speed and efficiency of the procedure is the reason for the lack of interest of men in the army of bottles and tubes that exist for such purposes. Which remedy should you choose? Anything you like. Even special shampoos for dry, normal or oily skin are not much different from each other. Not the last place in men's cosmetics is taken by means of hair loss. Many firms, showing rare care and responsiveness, offer special balms and masks for strengthening and nourishing hair roots, containing vitamin complexes, plant extracts, trace elements. However, it should be remembered that none of them will increase the number of hair follicles, but it may well stop the loss.

One of the most frequent questions of concern to men who begin to take care of their skin is whether they can use women's cosmetics. The answer is you can. Male skin does not differ much from female skin: in adolescence it is often oily and acne prone, and with age it gradually dehydrates and becomes wrinkled. So anti-wrinkle creams, nourishing creams, hand and body emollients, sunscreens, etc. suitable for both women and men. The most important thing is to know your skin type. By the way, Victoria Beckham has said more than once that her husband David, a famous football player and metrosexual idol, often uses her creams.
How much attention should be paid to a man to take care of his appearance, everyone decides for himself, the main thing is that it does not turn into mania. And we must not forget that all these procedures are not so much a matter of an aesthetic nature as care for their health.
