Men’s fashion—moving forward. Dapper barber shops—definitely catching on. But beauty for the boys? It’s not exactly a thing these days. Until now, the average man’s daily regimen is limited to pretty much shampoo, soap and, thankfully, some deodorant. But, even if guys don’t like to admit it, Watsons knows that even the manliest of men could use a little extra care. In their recent event entitled “Bro Bootcamp,” Watsons rolled out a crash course program showing the boys how to master personal care. From basic cleansing training, to showering, shaving and scent, all the way up to moisturizing, the guys got the lowdown on upping their grooming games. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the things they learned.
Sharp & Clean
Heard of the saying “not a hair out of place”? Well, here’s where you make sure that holds true. Enter the fine manly art of shaving. With a good trusty razor and shaving cream to smoothen each stroke, you’ll be set to get out there with that fine, put-together look in no time.
Cleansing preps the whole process of grooming. This is where you rid yourself of dirt and have a “clean base” so you use products like shampoo, facial wash and body wash.
Cleansing may leave your skin free from impurities, and that’s good, but sometimes this also leads to dry skin. And that’s a problem no one wants to deal with. That’s why it’s advisable to have a moisturizing product, usually in cream form, as part of your kit.
It’s not enough to be clean; you’ve got to smell clean too. A lot of guys underestimate the importance of getting that scent in check. Start with the basic deodorant, then spray on a light fragrance or cologne. Tip- match the occasion for the right effect.
The most important thing that these men found out—grooming reflects one’s character. Looking your best isn’t about vanity. It’s about taking full advantage of every edge you can. In a job interview, on a date, in pretty much every other daily battle you face—the guy who looks like he’s got it together has the upper hand.
Armed with manly knowledge and a swag bag full of grooming goods from Nivea Men, Gillette, Belo Men, Axe, Pond’s Men, Old Spice, Freshman, Adidas, Watsons Men Razor, Watsons Nose Pore Strips, and Press N’ Mix Hair Color, Watsons recruits left the even fully equipped to up their grooming games.
