College Grooming 101

college grooming 101
So you’re back at school and settled into dorm life. Beyond the basics of toothpaste and a razor there are some key college grooming products that you should have on hand. Most are available at the local drugstore so there’s no need to apply for another student loan.

Let’s start with the shower. The most important thing to get, after flip-flops for the shower, is body wash. It’s much less gross to tote a bottle than to cake up you new shower caddy with a bar soap. Get your semester off to “the freshest start” and try AXE White Label Night Body Wash. Study these notes of grapefruit, lavender, cedarwood and praline. It Smells so nice you won’t need a separate cologne.

There will be days that washing your face with the same product you wash your feet with just won’t cut it. College life is full of cramming for exams and smoky frat parties. And let’s face it that pillowcase won’t be washed until parents day weekend. Dirt, stress and a college diet can cause acne to flair up. Stay one step ahead of a breakout and use Neutrogena Men Skin Clearing Wash. It’s a gentle, oil-free formula with 2% Salicylic acid that will unclog pores minimizing pimples and ingrown hairs.

Clear skin is important. Clear eyes are too. Arrive bright eyed and bushy tailed to class. Sooth and refresh tired eyes after pulling an all-nighter with Rohto Cool Eye Drops. Speaking of cooling off. If you’re living on campus you don’t have any control over the temperature situation. Dorm rooms can be overheated causing dry skin and cracked lips. Stock up on lip balm like this one from Everyman Jack. Enriched with vitamin E this balm has an SPF 15 that’s perfect for the sunshine of University of Florida and the biting cold of the University of Michigan alike.

Maybe you took some things for granted living at home, like access to your Dad’s grooming kit. The Tweezerman G.E.A.R. Essential Grooming Kit might cost a little more but think of it as an investment in your future. It has all the tools you need to stay on top of hang nails, stray hairs and runaway brows none of which are big hits with the sorority sisters. And when you’ve mastered Grooming 101 visit Grooming Lounge. They have all the men’s grooming products you’ll need to succeed in the real world.
