During the teen years, many boys start to take more pride in their appearance. Proper grooming can make a noticeable difference in appearance, which can lead to increased confidence. Many beauty products exist that are now designed specifically with males in mind, and teen boys only need to set aside a few minutes a day to start a simple beauty regimen.
- Cleanse your skin with a good-quality cleanser. Select a cleanser that suits your skin type, as these products are available for dry, oily and normal skin. Moisturize your skin everyday, even if it is naturally oily. Finding the right moisturizer will help to create smooth, healthy skin. Use a thick shave gel containing aloe to keep skin smooth and help eliminate razor burn. Follow with moisturizer designed specifically for the face, again choosing one suited to your skin type.
- Read the bottles when buying shampoo, and choose one that suits your hair type. It is also important to use conditioner. It is a common misconception that only people with long hair need conditioner, but it will make your hair soft and shiny no matter the length. Find a hairstyle that suits you by consulting with your barber or hairstylist. It is common for boys to get the same cut every time, but a different hair style can change your look completely. Grooming is also very important when it comes to body hair. Trim nose and ear hair often.
- Lip balm is often overlooked by boys, but it is not just for girls. Chapped lips can be caused by many things such as certain types of food and the weather. Boys should protect and hydrate their lips by using a lip balm to keep them smooth.
