It’s that time of year again, the day that most men dread. Yet, it presents a day full of opportunities, especially if you play your cards right. Boys, there’s nothing quite like a romantic Valentine’s Day that can help seal the deal. Put in a little work, and there will be rewards!
And to help you in your endeavors, there are three key essential grooming tips you must follow to get ready for the moment:
(1) Shaving: Yes, I know you get some extra high fives in the locker room for sticking with your Movember mustache through February, but I’ll tell you from personal experience that it can be quite painful to kiss a man with a lot of stubble. So if you want that smooch session to last all night, making sure your face is extra smooth that day is essential.
Kyoku For Men Shave Essentials is one of most raved about products and will be sure to get you ready for that end of the night kiss.
(2) Cologne: You may be desensitized to the smell of sweat from all those hours you put in at the gym, but we can smell it all. In fact, I still cringe when I remember the scent of a weight room filled with men while you guys just sit around like it’s a day at the spa. Invest in some good cologne to cover up any trace of sweat, whether it be from day of jitters or because you were sprinting to make it to your date on time.
Baxter of California Bravado 2 offers a great, light scent that keeps you smelling like a man without making your dinner smell like cologne.
(3) Lip Balm: This should go without saying. I once dated a guy who always used to lick his lips before he kissed me. And even though I found this to be an endearing trait in some ways, there’s something a little more romantic about lip balm than saliva to make your lips perfectly kissable. Make sure to pick something that won’t make your lips waxy and not just something you’d pick up from a gas station. And of course, use it regularly to ensure that you won’t have to pull out your lip balm right before you go in for the kiss which is sure to be a mood killer.
Anthony Lip Balm is great as it hydrates your lips without giving you a girly shine.
