March 5, 2021 (IANSlifeWhile picking the right products can be a daunting task, men are serious about grooming, self-care and wellness routines. With the changes the world has seen, in the last one year, men got more time to realize the need to be well groomed.

There is a shift in mind-set from looking attractive to feeling confident, and presentable. Self-confidence is a key motivator when it comes to grooming, and over 40 percent of Indian men resonate with this.

Clean slate, fresh face: A good skincare regime can be quite daunting to figure! It’s a no-brainer that the first step to any skincare starts with thorough cleansing. You need to get rid of the dirt, grime, sebum that’s collected in your pores – whether it’s from outdoor dust and pollution or the dead skin cells and bacteria. Start your day (and end it too) by massaging a deep cleansing, foam-based facial cleaner onto your face, and washing it off with lukewarm water. Next add a few drops of serum and moisturiser, and then finally a good sunscreen.
