If you're a man, you're likely most comfortable with the basics, and when it comes to personal care, that means a routine with a few basics...
Less is more when it comes to the gentleman and their personal care routines. A few basics are all they need: wash, shampoo, shave, put on deodorant, repeat. There's value in evolving your grooming routine however. Take note of body sprays that you can apply as a convenient and subtle alternative to both deodorant and cologne. Maybe you've adopted or are considering a beard, that will have you necessarily expanding the scope of your personal care routine. Another way to take grooming to a new level is with DIY products featuring essential oils.
One way to revitalize the basic routines of body care for men is by re-imagining the products used. A subtle, but transformative way to do this is with essential oils. Essential-oil-based DIY personal care formulas for men can include: all-purpose body washes, homemade deodorant, traditional cologne, shaving cream and beard grooming oil. Switch up your routine in steps.
Step 1: Cleansing
Basic body cleansing for men doesn't have to involve elaborate scrubs, gels or exfoliating products. Most guys like the simplicity and convenience of a good old fashioned bar of soap, or easier to apply yet, shower wash. Adding essential oils to DIY version lets you create a unique and simplified version that features a new, signature essential oil scent.
Step 2: Deodorizing
It might be a challenge for most men to overcome their reliance on the convenience and chemistry of commercial underarm roll-ons and sticks, but a more conscientious DIY underarm cream formula featuring the spicy-fresh, citrus scent of bergamot may change the male mind when it comes to deodorant.
