Looking great for a date is a must. If you are meeting someone for the first time, celebrating an anniversary, or even if it’s just routine night on the town, then surely you will want to look good. That’s why it is important that you take the right steps in doing so. If you are unsure how exactly to prepare for your date, once those plans are set, then we have you covered. Here is our date night grooming checklist.
Date Night Grooming & Facial Hair
Men with facial hair are known to make women swoon. Nothing says more about a man then the way his beard or mustache is groomed. Most women perceive men with facial hair, especially ones with beards, to be more attractive than their clean-shaven counterparts.
One important tip when grooming your beard is to make sure there is no visible dirt! Food crumbles can fall onto your beard or mustache without you even knowing it. This can lead you to walk around with it like that all day. You want to give your date the impression that you keep your facial hair clean, not dirty. To remove this dirt, make sure to use a beard shampoo. Don’t overdo it though, too much can remove essential oils in your hair, causing it to become dry.
After leaving your facial hair to dry naturally, use some beard oil to keep it in place. It will also keep it nice and soft. Our beard oils, such as the Alchemist: Tea Tree And Peppermint Oil, are sure to do the trick. They will also leave a fresh scent that your date will enjoy.
Freshen your breath
This is a date night grooming must. You don’t want to chase your date away with the smell of onions and garlic. Otherwise, you definitely won’t get the chance for a second date.
One of the main reasons why bad breath occurs is because of food between your teeth. To prevent this, flossing is strongly urged. Yes, it is annoying to have to stick a piece of string between your teeth, but it helps in the long run. Not only does it help freshen your breath, but it also prevents gum inflammation.
If you’re looking for a quick fix, then mouthwash can also do the trick. Swoosh the liquid in your mouth for 60 seconds and, suddenly, you’ll have fresh smelling breath. Make sure to use it before running off to your date.
Take Care of your Skin
Men’s skin is more susceptible to becoming excessively oily than women’s. This means that there may be a chance that your skin will look shiny during your date. Continuously touching your face can make it look even worse.
Exfoliator is known to help reduce oil production as well as remove unclogged pores. This will help to prevent your skin from looking shiny and will actually help soften it. Ultimately, you will feel refreshed and cleansed for your date.
Prevent Dry Lips
After every date, certainly one of you will be going in for a kiss. Make sure that you prevent or remove dry skin on you lips. To remove any dry skin, you can use a toothbrush with olive oil and salt. Afterwards, apply lip balm or chapstick to prevent any dry skin from returning. Be careful though, don’t overuse it! Excess use of lip balm can actually cause your lips to dry more.
