We rarely host beauty how-tos for the boys but on the odd occasion that we do dabble with this foreign topic, we get such an awesome response, and it's usually from the ladies who have managed to bump up their boyfie's grooming routine after reading our jibber jabber. That's why today we thought we would indulge you with yet another, featuring the impeccably groomed Liam Hemsworth.
How can your man (or dad ... or best friend ... or pen pal?) exude this same suave charm and flawless presentation? With our help of course! We're here to show the guys that good grooming is something to be proud of. Share this link to all the dudes in your life and give them a push in the right direction. After all, the world could do with a few more Hemsworths, don't you think?
Tip 1: The first step to achieving a look like Liam is with some skin care basics. An exfoliating scrub is ideal to remove dead skin cells and oil buildup. It can also help create a smooth base for a more even, nick-free shave and get rid of ingrown hairs amongst his stubble. Tell him to try Clinique For Men Face Scrub pre-shave and see if he mentions the difference. We know he'll notice!
Tip 2: Once he's got his head around the idea of exfoliating once or twice per week, hit him with the need to cleanse EVERY DAY! Just as women's skin gets clogged with toxins and pollution from our daily environment, so does men's. In order to maintain clean and clear skin, men must get in the habit of cleansing their faces morning and night to eliminate dirt build up and excess sebum. Sneak a bottle of ThalgoMen Cleansing Gel into the shower and he's good to go.
Tip 3: The lads generally have more sensitive skin than the ladies and are prone to dryness and inflammation thanks to occasional razor burn and prickly stubble. Neutrogena Men Triple Protect Face Lotion SPF 20 is ideal to soothe razor discomfort, smooth and hydrate rough skin and shield it from UV damage.
Tip 4: A shaving cream is a must to avoid cuts, ingrown hairs, rashes and over-drying the skin. Lush Dirty Shaving Cream contains oat milk to cool and calm the skin, safflower oil to moisturise and honey to soothe. If he wasn't using one before, he is gonna wish he was now!
Tip 5: I don't know about you but it's bad enough having to shave my underarms without cutting myself or getting that irritated itch afterwards. I could not imagine how it would go down if I had to go at my face with blades on a regular basis! Help him combat any irritation and tightness by suggesting L'Occitane After Shave Balm. This will help sooth inflammation and irritation, calm the itch and re-hydrate the face and neck.
Tip 6: Ain't no girl ever wanted to pucker up for a bloke with a chapped pout. Get totally supple and kissable lips like Liam on your receiving end by encouraging your man to use a lip balm. Kiehl's Lip Balm is designed for men and is shine-free so his mates won't even realise he has it on.
Tip 7: Looking good also means smelling good. Team him up with A'kin PureMan All-in-one Hair and Body Wash. He can lather up from head to toe and exit the shower exuding the sweet scents of orange, ginseng and spice.
Tip 8: Complete the Liam look with a slick of strong hold, matte clay through the tresses. Tell him to smooth down the back and sides and to lift the front up, slightly pushing it back and towards his preferred side for a modern take on the quiff. Kevin Murphy Rough Rider is a goodie to achieve this look.
See, told you. Total makeover and all it took were a few basic prods!
