Tips for guys on body hair maintenance
Men typically have a good grasp on what’s expected of them when it comes to maintaining their facial hair. But fewer men are confident about how they should maintain hair below the neck.
In fact, a recent Philips survey conducted amongst Canadian men between 18 and 40 revealed that 59 per cent wished they had more guidance on maintaining hair in one or more of the following places: chest, back, under arms, legs or nether regions.
Why would men care about their grooming habits? According to the same survey, the majority of Canadian men believe that good grooming habits can improve their romantic life (86%), social life (73%) and professional careers (70%).
No matter the motivation behind your grooming habits, check out the following top body hair tips for men:
1. For those with back hair, 44 per cent believe that a clean shaven look is the best way to go. To maintain back hair at home, look for tools that can be used in water so you can make maintenance part of your shower routine. Retailers point to the Philips Bodygroom 5000 for that purpose.
2. While 51 per cent of men prefer to let underarm hair grow au natural, be sure to use scissors to trim any unruly hair for a cleaner, well-groomed look.
3. For gents with chest hair, 46 per cent believe that trimming or shaving is the best way to maintain it. Protect this sensitive skin with an easy to use product. The Philips BodyGroom 1000 has a unique skin protector built in
4. Manscaping private areas cause the greatest concern and the most questions. Many men say they are cautious, however, about who they go to for advice. Worry no longer. For down-there hair care, keep things looking natural but neat. Trimming works best so look for an all-in-one tool that you can use on both face and body. Bonus tip: Trimming in the shower helps keep your bathroom tidy.
