Even though some things listed in this article aren’t in your control, this is definitely under your own control.

You actually need like one or maybe 2 splashes. Any more and you’re just drowning others. It is neither hot nor sexy.

In fact, it defeats the sole purpose of wearing cologne in the first place and it should certainly set you back a few notches. Just take what you usually use and then use slightly less.

#3 You Completely Ignore The Eyebrows


The eyebrows are among the most defining features of your body. They usually add personality to the face.

As a result, maintaining them is very more important so if you’ve got unruly eyebrows.

The easiest way for you to neaten and control eyebrows is by using special brow gels even though a bit of hair wax also works well.

Comb your eyebrow first so that all the hair is facing in one direction and slick tiny amounts along the eyebrow using the tip of the finger.

In case you’ve got more of the unibrow situation then it might be time for you to enlist some specialized help.

Just head to the local spa for quick wax rather than attempting to cure the situation by yourself.

#4 Body Acne

Body Acne

Body acne can turn out to be tricky and it’s often unavoidable.

However, there are times when it is avoidable but people don’t just know what they are doing wrong.

Well, let’s take a closer look at what causes body acne, clogged pores, right?

Most times when people go to the gym, they usually wear clothes that don’t let their body’s pores to breathe.

Ensure that you wear clothes that are a bit looser and they also allow the skin to be open.

Also, after you are done at the gym, you should hop in the shower. Letting the sweat sit on the skin will also clog your pores. That goes for every part of the body.

It’s simple, just keep yourself clean and all will be fine. If you continue having issues with it, then invest in acne treatment or buy a good cleanser.

#5 Choosing Improper Grooming Tools

It’s quite difficult to decide on the right set of tools for grooming different body areas.

A common mistake that men often make when grooming is by choosing improper grooming tools.

For instance, a disposable razor is a big mistake when grooming certain body parts.

Razors with less than three blades or disposable razors are sure to make the shaving process quite difficult.

When fully shaving certain areas of the body, the disposable razors won’t shave closely and they are more likely to cause cuts and nicks as well as skin irritations.

Disposable Razors

A quality electric shaver ought to be used when grooming all areas of a man’s body. Electric shavers have more features and they work well for a close shave that’s painless and smooth.

Combs and adjustable blades will help to create the desired shave that a man needs.

Daily grooming or complete shaving should be done using a good electric shaver with a wide range of features designed to assist in the perfect removal of hair.

#6 Use Over The Counter Depilatories


Another grooming mistake that men make while grooming body hair is by using drugstore depilatories.

Using sprays or home waxes can be difficult and they are less likely to leave great results. Often irritation and rashes are the final results.

If you make a decision to wax certain body areas, it’s best to have it done professionally.

Chances are that it will be painless and quick. It’s less likely to cause irritation or rashes. The results will last longer and look better.

#7 Yellow Teeth

This is never a great thing. The unfortunate thing is the fact that some people don’t just pay enough attention to do anything about oral care.

There are several natural things that will keep the teeth at an undesirable shade (like smoking and coffee) but mostly it is neglect and failure to use the right toothpaste.

I think it is safe to say that most doctors gave up on the “brush 3 times per day” thing. Who has the time for that?

Nevertheless, you should definitely brush two times a day.

In case you have lots of sugar, then throw the third one in there when time allows.

In addition, eat lots of vegetables and raw fruits. This also helps to keep the gums healthy.

Do you have a problem with the morning breath? Then try to ditch the mouthwash. Too much mouthwash might even kill the good bacteria within your mouth. Instead, shoot for green tea.

#8 What’s Up With That Dandruff?

Whats up with that dandruff

There are many things that you can do so as to treat dandruff.

First, it is best to invest in shampoos that will help to control it.

Instead of buying the usual “Head and Shoulders” or something quite similar, try going for the green tea treatment. Nonetheless, dandruff shampoos work as well.

Additionally, you should try little things such as not going to bed with wet hair. When you decide to go to bed, the head should be clean, moisturized, and get rid of all toxins from the day.
