Fashion Week is one of the biggest annual events in New York City, attracting the world’s brightest, best dressed and most beautiful to be found in the business. Even if you’re not involved in the fashion industry at all, it’s a fair chance that you’ll be brushing shoulders on the subway or sitting one stool over at the bar from someone who is. To keep yourself all spiffed up for the big week, we’ve put together some easy tips and tricks to try to get your grooming up to par in no time.
- Since berets are taking over this year’s men fashion runways, meet the beret of the grooming world: nail buffers! These handy guys can make the dullest set of nails looks clean and healthy in minutes. Usually four-sided, each surface area does a different task for your nails beds, such as smoothing or polishing. You can find a set of two on Amazon for a cool $8 and keep your nails looking top notch.
- Just like any job you have to get done, you need the right tools. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want to work with a bigger toolbox? Cammllyc’s 16 in 1 Mens Grooming Kit is the toolbox you need to keep your look sharp no matter what comes at you. It’s travel friendly and all of the tools come in a matte black non-slip metal. Like any good scout, you should always be prepared.
- Sometimes you can find things right around the house to help promote healthy nails. For instance, mix together one cup of water, a tablespoon of baking soda and half a lemon’s juice squeezed in and soak your nails in it for about ten minutes. The mixture will bleach brown or yellow stains, contains Vitamin C for growth and gives your nails an extra healthy sheen.
- Especially now that the weather is frigid and dries out your skin, moisturizing is extremely important. One of the best moisturizers out there for guys right now is Nivea Men’s Maximum Hydration lotion. It uses its patented HYDRA IQ Technology and seas minerals to deliver the most moisture and protect your hands from drying out, because dry, flaky skin is never in.
With these simple tips, you can be sure to be ready for any surprise paparazzi photos you might accidentally photobomb.
