How To Boost Self-Esteem With Proper Grooming & Self Care

Men's grooming is a proven solution to propel self-esteem! Wouldn't it be great if each day you're well turned out, looking your best, oozing charm and radiating nothing but confidence? Yes, this is all achievable as long as you take responsibility and follow a self-care routine regularly. When it comes to men’s grooming, a few key things are essential for best results. Humanery exists to help you form proper grooming habits in order to boost your self-confidence.

What is Self-Esteem?

It might seem self-explanatory, but self-esteem is essentially self-respect. It’s how you see yourself and your abilities, and it can be developed through various means such as self-confidence or self-awareness.

Self-esteem focuses on a person’s attitude toward themselves rather than how others perceive them. In a world where looks can often make or break a man’s confidence, it’s logical to see why proper grooming is essential for boosting their perception of themselves.

How is Self-Care Different?

How To Boost Self-Esteem With Proper Grooming & Self Care

Most people have heard the phrase “self-care” before, but many don’t know what it entails. Self-care is simply taking time to focus on yourself and your well being so that you can feel energised and happy throughout the day. It’s essential to remember that building up self-confidence is vital for self-esteem.

If you put in the work, feel good about what you see in the mirror, and focus on your self-care, your self-esteem will enhance naturally.

1. Skincare

First and foremost, men need to make sure that they take care of their skin. This means using a good quality face wash, moisturiser, and sunscreen daily. Taking care of their appearance can be a daunting task for many men. There are many different products and routines to choose from, and it can be difficult to determine where to start. Many men feel self-conscious about their skin, especially if they have acne or other blemishes.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s skin is different, and there is no “perfect” skincare routine. The key is to find products that work well for your skin type and to be consistent with your skincare routine.

That’s why it’s important to find a men's grooming routine that works for you and stick to it. If you find that a particular product or routine isn’t working for you, don’t be afraid to switch things up. Experiment until you find what makes you look and feel your best. 

Need a bit of celebrity inspiration? Pharrell Williams started a skin routine that he now consistently follows in later life. He has mentioned that this routine is his secret to younger-looking skin. Pharrell opts for a cleansing, toning and moisturizing (CTM) routine which consists of the following;

 
Clinique For Men’s Super Energizer Powder Cleanser | Humānery
A good cleanser that he then washes off with cold water. We recommend Clinique For Men’s Super Energizer Powder Cleanser that has the added benefit of reducing puffy eyes. 
D'ALCHÉMY Hydrating Dew Facial Toner | Humānery
A toner, such as D'ALCHÉMY Hydrating Dew Facial Toner that helps remove excess dirt and oil 
Humanity Cosmetics Moisturiser | Humānery
And a moisturiser like Humanity Cosmetics Moisturiser, which is crafted specifically for male skin.

As Pharell exemplifies, keeping a good skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated as long as you stick to it.

2. Keeping Your Hair Styled, Beard Groomed and Nails Trimmed

It’s also important to pay attention to other areas of the body, such as the hair, beard and nails. Men should aim to keep their hair trimmed and styled in a way that makes them feel confident alongside complementing their beard. If you’re looking for a great way to take care of your hair, talk with your stylist about getting regular trims. This can prevent split ends and help reduce breakage. Grooming your beard is comparatively simpler since it can be done at home using trimmers. Men should not forget to take care of their nails, keeping them clean and groomed not only leaves a good impression but also accounts for good hygiene. It’s incredible how such small details contribute towards boosting your confidence.

3. Caring for Your Body

Men also need to take care of their bodies by exercising and eating a healthy diet. This not only helps improve self-esteem, but it also has several other health benefits.

  • Exercising is a great way to boost self-esteem and confidence. Not only does it make you look and feel better physically, but it can also improve your mood and self-confidence.

  • Eating a healthy diet is another way to take care of your body. Eating unhealthy foods can not only make you feel sluggish and bloated, but it can also lead to weight gain and various health problems, which all impact your self-esteem.

However, it’s important to find a balance between eating healthy foods and letting yourself indulge in occasional treats.

4. Treat Yourself

If you’re feeling down about your appearance, take some time to focus on self-care. Pamper yourself with a relaxing bath, go for a jog, or treat yourself to an afternoon at the spa. At times even rewarding yourself with a little something makes a huge difference. Take a look at our Gifts Collection and treat yourself today.
