Long gone are the days that females are the only ones with everyday routines to maintain their looks; now men are getting in on the action too! Male grooming is no longer a taboo subject as many modern men have no problem admitting that they put daily effort into taking care of themselves. Although grooming is now perfectly acceptable, some men still think it’s either too much trouble or simply do not know how to get started. I recently did a photo shoot with hottie Dominic Adams from the Lifetime series “Devious Maids” for XEX magazine and I’ll break down some simple grooming tips that I used on him that ANY man can handle.

N moisturizerStart off by moisturizing your face. An ashy face or peeling skin is never, ever, ever, ever a turn on. I used good old fashioned Neutrogena moisturizer on Dominic’s face and applied it with a Beauty Blender. This moisturizer is a great option because it gives long lasting hydration and can be found at almost any drug store.

A great way to manage unruly eyebrows is with a good brow gel, I prefer to use the one by Anastasia. It’s a colorless product so it won’t look unnatural and the applicator allows you to comb the product into the brows in order to keep them in place. If some stray brow hairs are not cooperating or are way too long you can clip them down with small scissors like these.

 

RosebudHydrate your lips. A man with dry, cracked lips is never deemed kissable – by anyone. Keep your lips pillow soft and protect them from chapping with a good lip balm. I love Rosebud lip balm it last for hours and smells great. The best part is that even though it’s called Rosebud, it comes in very manly packaging.

This whole routine takes less than 10 minutes and is well worth the effort. Incorporating these simple things into your morning ritual (right after you wash your face) will keep you looking and feeling hot all day long.
