07 Jul Hey boys! Here’s a little grooming secret for you! – Evelyn’s Secrets
Here’s a little secret: More than the rugged bad boy, girls love a well-groomed hunk! In the past couple of weeks I’ve spoken a lot about beauty secrets for the ladies, so now I thought let me tell the boys about the secrets I have picked up on my travels for all of you! Now, my guy friends can be quite annoying when I make them DIY beauty products because they think i’m just serving them some healthy food… DON’T SNACK ON MY INGREDIENTS!!!
I love the fact that more and more men have started to adopt their own beauty rituals. Forever groomed man crush: David Beckham! And of course our Indian equivalent: Shahid Kapoor! Whether it’s a beard grooming kit or a particular night-time cream for smoother skin, beauty products are as important to men as they are to women. And personally, I think it’s sexy when a man takes time to take care of himself cause that means he’s gonna take care of me, too!
The cool thing is – anytime I walk into one of the cosmetics shops at the mall, I always glance at the product offering for men. There are really some great products out there for every guy’s needs! They can be quite pricy thought and you all know I always prefer the organic route, so luckily you don’t always need to buy expensive products to give yourself a good exfoliation! Especially if you’re into active sports and an outdoors type of guy, giving your skin a good scrub and hydrate by moisturising can be the best feeling in the world after a long day! So give your skin a little love over the weekend and try this recipe for a DIY scrub that works well for men with rough skin or in-grown hairs on that jawline and neck!
What you’ll need:
- 2-3 tablespoons ground oatmeal
- ¼ tablespoon sea salt or pink rock salt
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon water or pure cucumber juice
- ½ teaspoon honey
Once you’ve made a paste out of all the ingredients, slather it on your face and neck and massage in gentle, circular motions for about 5 minutes, or let your girl friend to do the honours. I am sure she will love you forever if you invite her over for a little beauty day this weekend! You can rinse it off with warm water and pat your skin dry. If you have any leftovers, feel free to store it in the fridge and use it again within the next 3-4 days. Enjoy your fresh face, gentlemen!
Again: Don’t eat the ingredients! They are for your face not your tummy 🙂
