A good shave can do wonders. It not only lends a clean, fresh appearance but also makes one look presentable and professional.

A good razor will not only make shaving easier but will also protect your skin and keep it healthy and free of knicks and cuts.

Bro-tips for grooming
- Always ensure your fingernails and short and clean. File them to avoid sharp edges and make sure you clean the dirt accumulated under the nails.
- Bad breath can be a huge turn-off. Brush your teeth thoroughly and make sure you floss. Rinse with mouthwash. Also, keep a pack of chewing gum handy for instant freshness.
- Use sunscreen. The sun rays are harmful and can cause skin damage, wrinkles, fine lines and sunburns too. Always use sunscreen, preferable SP 30+ to shield your skin from the rays.
- Get a solid 8-hour sleep. Lack of sleep can make you look dull and tired and can lead to dark circles too.
- Wear the right fit. Make sure your clothes fit you perfectly. Very tight or very loose clothes do not look pleasant. The right fit makes everything better.
- Drink water and keep yourself hydrated. Water is packed with benefits and will improve your overall health and appearance.
