5 Habits of The Well-Groomed Gentleman by ADAM Grooming Atelier
“A gentleman attracts the attention of many.” – The Gentleman’s Guide
As such, the modern man of today should possess a natural desire and tendency to make sure that he puts his best foot (and face) forward. It can appear daunting at first. With shelves lined with lookalike pots and bottles, all claiming to get rid of pesky dark circles or to soften that facial hair. Grooming has never seemed so laborious. But fear not, you can create a meticulous and smooth daily routine without any of the stress.
Presto; five top tips to make sure you stay in top form without breaking a sweat.
1) Floss Daily
Kick your dental care up a notch by simply take 1 minute to floss those pearly whites. Highly underrated, this small venture is beneficial not only in visual terms but for your overall health.
“It’s one of the most important things you can do to keep your mouth healthy,” quoted from Joan Otomo – Corgel, professor at the UCLA School of Dentistry.
No excuses - get flossing.
2) Use Protection
Apply sunscreen to your face every morning. For those of you who live in London, you may now have a puzzled look on your face.
But even during those inevitable overcast days, UVA rays that can cause premature wrinkling and skin damage are just as strong.
So, stay safe and SPF.
3) Feed the Beard
Don’t let your partner suffer a scratchy, unkempt beard – it’s not attractive. This counts for the bachelors out there too though.
Find the right products for you and take some time to develop your beard style (frequency of upkeep will depend on your overall goals and facial hair type). You want to avoid purchasing low-grade razors - invest in proper equipment that will ensure your trim stays sharp and won’t irritate your skin.
Finally, do not forget aftershave balm to heal and soothe.
4) Find a Trusted Barber
Determine your barber of choice and stick to booking an appointment once or twice a month. With every visit your trusted barbers will determine what products work best for your hair type, your ideal hairstyle, and ultimately you won’t have to worry about walking out disappointed.
At ADAM we look to build that sense of security and trust from the first time you sit down in the barbers’ seat.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your next treatment and let the polishing begin.
5) Finish Off with a Signature Scent
“Good manners and good cologne is what transfers a man into a gentleman.”
Wise words from the man himself, Tom Ford – need we say more?
And so, we come to the end of our top five grooming habits for the modern-day gentleman. See? We said it would be simple.
