3 Difficult Grooming Tasks That Guys Have To Do

Guys, we all know that keeping your appearance looking fresh takes time and effort. I mean yes, we all just want to throw on a fresh shirt with some deodorant/cologne and call it a day (cause I do that ALOT). But if you’re going to a special event, or just trying to impress that special someone; you may need to go that extra mile to make it happen.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are PLENTY of tasks that men have to perform in their daily grooming rituals. But some are a little more difficult than others, and these are three that stick out in my mind;

1. Pluck That DAMN Unibrow: Guys, do us all a favor, and just PLUCK THAT DAMN UNIBROW! Nobody wants to see a little caterpillar crawling around on your face, cause it’s just weird.

I get it though, it’s a bitch to pluck. Each prick of the tweezers can just bring a tear to your eye. But if you don’t do it, then you might have a better chance of hooking up with a street sweeper next time you go to the bar.

2. Shaving Your Ass: At the risk of sounding vulgar, I had to throw this one in here. Because you can’t sit there and tell me that there is an easy way to shave down there. I mean, it’s like taking an algebra final after studying history all night; you’ll be going in blind, and the result may end up hurting you BIG TIME!

Personally, I don’t want to get into the best methods to complete this task; that’s a conversation that NOBODY wants to have. However, all I have to say is, do this with caution and delicately; because who knows what could happen if you don’t.

3. Choosing The Perfect Cologne For You: Some people may not say that this would fall under the term “grooming,” but I would disagree. It involves your personal smell, and smell equals hygiene to me 100% of the time.

Anyway, depending on your body chemistry, cologne can be a tricky selection for many reasons. On one hand, the right scent can create an amazing aroma that will have all of the ladies clinging to you. BUT, if you pick the wrong scent, you might as well stay home for….well….ever!

The best advice that I can give you for this predicament would be to test out a few with the people closest to you, ESPECIALLY your girlfriend/wife. In most cases, she will end up being one of the only people within “smell-radius” of you. SO, if you would like to not hear “it” from her constantly, you might as well pick the scent that she likes.
