GROOMING MISTAKES YOU’RE MAKING

 

* * * * *

 

We all make blunders, and that’s OK. We’re not born understanding how to make the best out of our appearance, be it with our shoes or, in this case, our serums. There isn’t a single member of the Donald Anthony who hasn’t at some point done a bathroom gaffe in their search for a more handsome face. But making the same error repeatedly without understanding that it’s even a mistake in the first place? Well, that’s where we should draw the line. To that end, we recognised seven shared grooming sins.

 

Don't Be. Become.

OVERLOOKING YOUR EXTRAS

                           

Most men pay inadequate attention to their hands and feet. While calluses, cracks and dry skin sound like only minor embarrassments, they can grow into much worse problems. As well as being unpleasant to look at, broken skin and ingrown toenails are a breeding ground for bacteria. If you haven’t built up the bravery to visit an expert just yet, start with simple steps like soaking your feet in warm water before moisturising, and keeping a hand cream on your desk.

FRUGAL ON HAIRCUTS

 

In life, there are things you can pinch on, and some things you unquestionably cannot, primarily quality denim and your barber. Your hair is such a strong statement of who you are, it’s always worth spending a little extra. Shelling out more than £20 rather than about £6 won’t just get you more than a bog-standard snip, it’ll pay dividends in the form of a stylist who takes the time to carry out a proper consultation. It’s vital to build a relationship with a barber over time, this allows them to learn your likes and dislikes and how your hair works, so you’ll always end up with a great outcome.

BEING WITH THE SUN

 

Damage from prolonged sun exposure is the number one reason for your face looking like an unloved box of prunes. Harmful UVA and UVB rays force collagen to break down at a higher rate than normal. If premature ageing isn’t enough to scare you into the shade, that big ball of radioactive mass also dehydrates the skin and can even lead to melanoma. Aside from making a daily SPF essential, with so many safe ways to get a natural-looking tan, there’s really no reason for playing fast and loose.
