8 Grooming Tricks Most Guys DON’T Know!

November 26, 2021
Part of my job as your grooming sensei is to stay up-to-date on all the latest grooming research, trends, and scientific data. The other day, I was doing a little recon when I discovered an article from Esquire.  I reviewed the tips they presented about grooming, and I came to the conclusion that Esquire sucks. So, forget Esquire and their stupid-ass tips, and instead, check out my favorite grooming tips, tricks, and hacks.

My favorite grooming tips & hacks

  1. Shave your face in the shower — the heat and steam soften bristles. Use face wash as your shaving cream to take it next level.
  2. Use an old toothbrush to exfoliate your nose — if you have an area prone to breakouts, blemishes, and clogged pores, use a soft toothbrush to gently exfoliate. You can also use an old toothbrush to remove dead skin from your feet.
  3. Clean your ears directly after your shower — the wax is softer at this time, and thus, easier to get out. Do not use a Q-tip, which will push the wax deep into your ear. Use the Spade Axel Glade instead.
  4. Use ball powder as your dry shampoo — it will absorb oils and grease to make your hair look cleaner and fresher. Your hair will also have more texture and volume.
  5. Apply Vaseline before applying your fragrance — after a shower, hit your pulse points with dabs of Vaseline to create a barrier layer so that the fragrance doesn’t soak into your skin. The fragrance will instead sit on top of your skin.
  6. Use Vaseline on your lips — keep your lips kissable and soft by applying at bedtime.
  7. Rub Vaseline on your cuticles and nails —  condition your cuticles/nails with Vaseline, but also keep your hands looking sexy before you head out the door.
  8. Utilize your nose hair grooming tool different ways— not only for your nose but for edging ears, edging  nostrils, and running around lips. I also use it for edging around my ears to make my haircut last longer.

Gentlemen, remember you get what you pay for. Sure cheap products save you a few bucks, but what’s the actual cost to your body for using them? ⁠ ⁠
Cheap products have been shown in scientific studies that the parabens in these products can disrupt hormones, harm fertility, and increase the risk of cancer. They can also cause skin irritation and irreversible damage to hair follicles. No thanks! ⁠ ⁠
Skip the cheap products and make sure to grab something Paraben-Free. Your body will thank you!⁠ Check out Pete & Pedro products!
