Grow old with style with these exciting tips

Growing may seem like a curse to anybody. Surely, you will face the possibilities of wrinkled skins, saggy weight and the dreaded going grey. But no longer growing old is a taboo any longer. In fact, it is now part of the men’s fashion to sport that salt and pepper look and character lines around the eyes.

Here are some tips you can check out that will help you age fine, just like wine:

Keep your body hair to a bare minimum: You may consider chest hair to be the sign of your manliness. However, women don’t exactly dig that look any longer. Now it is essential to trim your chest hair from time to time. That is because as you age, the growth area of your chest hair tends to spread to other parts of the body. A light manscaping should help do the trick and tame it.

Apply eye cream: Crow’s feet are quite common between your eyes and temple, and it is one of the most obvious signs of ageing. It is also an unavoidable problem that everyone faces as they age if you keep up with veteran actors and celebrities in the men’s fashion magazine. As you grow older, these lines will become more prominent. While you cannot avoid it completely, you can take measures to slow down the occurrence. You can do this, by applying eye cream on a daily basis. This is best done after you wash your face and before you moisturise your skin.

 

Follow a skin care regime regularly: As you age, your skin may wrinkle and turn rough. Like crow’s feet, this is an unavoidable change in your body. But with the right steps, you can keep it wrinkle free and smooth, giving you a flawless appearance. You only need to follow a daily skin care regime for this purpose. The best time to do this is to start young. Opt for facial exfoliating; which helps improve blood circulation on your face. You can even visit an aesthetician to help you get the recommended tailor-made routine for more long-lasting results.

 

Keep your hairstyle simple: You may be tempted to continue using the number of products on your hair as you age, especially when it comes to styling. However, this does more damage to your hair than you would expect. Skip funky hairdos like spikes and slick backs, and go for short hairdos that are simple. If you need to use products, opt for those that improve the quantity of your hair. You can look for suggestions and recommendations in most of the top men’s fashion magazine. You will realise what difference it makes to your mane when you keep it minimum over OTT looks.

 

Stop colouring your hair: The salt and pepper look is the latest trend when it comes to men’s fashion. Instead of trying to hide the fact that you are going grey, embrace your natural hair colour and let it grow out naturally.

The sexiest perfumes for men that are a must have

Perfumes may seem like a simple thing. You buy the perfume of your choice; you put it on and smell good. But a lot more goes behind creating your choice of sweet, smoky or wood perfume. For one, it includes one of the most important elements that give it its unique smell, known as oud.

Oud is a residual formation found in the Aquilaria tree. This tree comprises of over fifteen different species. When this particular tree is infected by a mould known as Phialophora parasitica, it reacts by producing a resin to protect itself. This resin is dense, dark and fragrant, normally embedded in the heartwood that is the source of oud.

While these trees are grown all throughout South East Asia, especially in India and Bangladesh, it is one of the most expensive timber woods in the world. That is because these species of trees are now registered by CITES as potentially threatened species, against the demands of the global agarwood market which is at a worth of £5 billion annually. Moreover, the scent itself varies, depending on the wood used, the area where the tree is grown and whether the tree itself was cultivated or naturally infected.

As you can see, a lot more goes into the production of perfume for men. Since these perfumes are made with precision, its resulting value will be an extraordinary mix. So if you are looking for the best perfumes for men, here are a few choices you can consider:

Tom Ford Noir de Noir: While the smell of rose may be an odd choice to match with oud, it surprisingly works well in the Tom Ford Noir de Noir choice. It perfectly complements the wood’s darkness, with the end resulting being a romantic and provocative choice.

Acqua Di Parma Colonia Oud Eau de Cologne Concentrée: The oud in this perfume is complemented with leather and spices. While the tone starts off strong, it settles down to fantastic complexity.

Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud: This perfume is both dark and warm. It does offer a very subtle medicinal tang, which sharpens up. It comprises of a combination of bergamot, patchouli and amber.

Boss Bottled Oud: This is a brand new iteration of the grand Boss Bottled. This perfume offers an unashamedly powerful scent, which allows its audience to experience a completely different oud experience.

Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Desert Oud: When launched it had rapidly become one of the bestselling men’s cologne. Its distinctive odour is evocative of the Middle East.

Yves Saint Laurent Splendid Wood: It offers a genuine unisex fragrance with spicy cardamom and jasmine, along with woody notes. This is one way to get you noticed, without overpowering the room.

Reiss Black Oudh: As the first fragrance for men, this is a very pleasant surprise. The opening fragrance comprises of laurel and green cypress, with the middle notes moving to vetiver and clary sage. It finally settles down to the black oud, that is dark, heavy and earthy.

Four-in-Hand Knot: All you need to know about it

When it comes to tying a tie, the four in hand knot is one of the most popular methods to tie a necktie. The four in hand knot is also known as the simple knot or schoolboy knot, especially known for their simplicity and style.

In fact, if you take a look back in history, research has claimed that earlier carriage drivers tend to tie their reins with a four in hand knot. Alternate sources claimed that they also wore their scarves in that manner. The most likely etymology is that, the members of the Four in Hand Club in London began wearing this neckwear as a fashionable piece.

In India, ties have mostly been restricted to the school uniforms or boardroom dressings. However, once in a while, you may be required to wear a tie for more formal occasion such as a wedding, or a real special date. You may even want to make a deeper impression when it comes to a potential job interview. However, unlike other countries, wearing a tie isn’t part of the daily wardrobe requirement. In fact, we rarely ever find it in the wardrobe of Indian men, unless it is already pre – tied and kept. So how to tie a tie  in this way?

The four in hand knot makes the ideal choice for a narrow, more discreet and slightly asymmetrical tie knot. It works best with wide neckties that are made from heavy fabrics and even standard button down dress shirt. The tie knot can also be worn by anyone, especially for individuals who have shorter necks. That is because the knot’s rather narrow and elongated form, creates the perception of a higher neck height.

The four in hand knot, it isn’t rocket science to tie this basic knot. Here we give you a step by step guide on how to tie a tie:

Step 1: Place the tie around your neck, with the narrow end on your right and the wider end on the left. Keep the narrow end a bit shorter than the wider end.

Step 2: Cross the wide end of the narrow end of the tie.

Step 3: Fold the wide end under the narrow end of the tie

Step 4: Pass the wider end horizontally over the narrow end again.

Step 5: Take the wide end and pull it through the loop around the neck. You will then have to pull it through the knot

Step 6: Tighten the knot by pulling the wide end

Step 7: You can adjust the length of the narrow end until it is snug against the collar.

Now that you are aware of how to tie a tie, you can now easily be a wiz at this fancy knot and make sure you stand apart in the crowd.

How to Look Handsome – Follow these Grooming Tips

There is no direct way to look handsome. It all starts by grooming. After all, no one is ugly. Grooming is an essential part when it comes to knowing how to look handsome.

Your skin seeks attention when it starts to get dry. Do not turn a blind eye to this aspect, after it is your face that is seen first. Considering this aspect, it is important that you moisturise your skin on a daily basis. One of the greatest benefits of moisturising is that it helps in reducing the post-shave irritation risk. Besides, it also works by maintaining the pH balance in the skin.

 

Take Care of your Facial Hair

Shaving and trimming go hand in hand. Master the art of shaving. It does not only mean using a right razor. Taking right care in choosing the grooming products is also important. Overgrown and scruffy beards are a complete turn-off. Besides, do not plan on ditching the pre-shave oil and after-shave lotion. These are vital grooming products and help in keeping the skin of your face fresh and clean.

 

Sun Protection Is For You Too!

It is not that sunscreen is made for women alone. Men are highly recommended to use the same as it helps in protecting your skin from harsh Ultra Violet rays (UV). Opt for SPF 30 as it will do the job of protecting your skin. Not many know, but long exposure to the sun leads to premature ageing of the skin. It also helps in keeping skin cancer at bay!

 

Brighten Up Your Amazing Smile

When it comes to looking for how to look handsome, do not forget about taking care of your pearly whites. Do include the same in your grooming list. Ensure you brush and flush your teeth on a regular basis. Apart from this, do visit the dentist after every six months for cleaning.

 

Smell Nice and Fresh

A little bit of sweat does not bother anyone, but if you sweat constantly, then you need to use a right deodorant. If you plan to use cologne, then you are advised to use an unscented deodorant. Ensure you have a signature scent as it goes a long way in identifying your personality.
