8 Grooming Tools Every Guy Needs
DIY grooming is now more essential than ever, but what should be in your kit? We’re rounding up the tools that will transform your routine without leaving the house.
The days of a man’s grooming routine consisting solely of soap and water are long gone, and many guys have happily started to adopt robust skincare and haircare routines. But while many men have taken steps to increase the quality of the products they use, things may still be a little lacking on the tool side. Whether you’re a grooming newbie or a maintenance maven, it’s never too late to build up your at-home toolbox. Here are the eight grooming tools every guy needs.
The Handy Nail Set: Manscaped The Shears Nail Grooming Kit
The nails tend to be a forgotten area for most guys, with many either sporting fingernails that are too long or too short as a result of biting. A manicure set will keep your nails looking neat and clean, and this portable kit includes everything you need — nail clippers, a refining file, safety scissors, tweezers, and an ear pick — in a handsome carrying case. $14.99, manscaped.com
The Very Precise Beard Trimmer: Bevel Trimmer
Facial hair is a very personal choice. Some choose to shave it all off. Others prefer a fuller look. Whatever the case may be, a quality beard trimmer will take care of all your facial hair needs. This sleek design boasts eight hours of cordless power and an antimicrobial coating on the blade. $200, bevel.com
The Powerful Cleansing Device: Spa Sciences NOVA Sonic Cleansing Brush
Your dermatologist will be happy if you’re washing your face at all, but using a cleansing device will further remove dirt, oil, and sweat from your pores, which helps prevent breakouts and creates a better surface for the absorption of your skincare products. This three-speed wand features an antimicrobial brush head and is gentle enough for regular use. $39, walmart.com
The Easy-to-Use Tweezers: Tweezerman Slant Tweezers
Eyebrow maintenance is a job in and of itself, but a pair of handy tweezers will make taking care of your brows a breeze. Tweezerman’s classic tool is noted for its 25-degree angled tip that allows for precise plucking. $23, ulta.com
The Convenient Trimmer: Brookstone Premium Personal Ear & Nose Trimmer
The most important thing to look for in a nose and ear trimmer is a device that won’t pull or nick the sensitive skin in those areas. This device, which comes with a detail trimmer, two comb attachments, and a storage pouch, employs patent-pending blade technology for a smooth trim that can be used on the brows, too. $30, ulta.com
The Do It All Foot Care Set: Earth Therapeutics Foot Doctor Pedicure Kit
You don’t need a professional pedicure to give your trotters the TLC they deserve. This set includes a pumice stone to smooth and soften your soles, along with a foot scrub, remedy balm, cuticle pusher, cuticle trimmer, nail clipper, and file for a DIY salon experience. $25, kohls.com
The Dentist-Approved Pick: Waterpik Nano Water Flosser
As your dentist surely reminds you during your cleaning visits, flossing is a must. While there are a number of picks that are readily available for the crevices between your teeth (think: nylon floss, dental picks), water flossers are an underrated choice. These nifty devices are fun to use, and they’re best for getting to the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. $50, bedbathandbeyond.com
The Versatile Brush: Kerotin Scalp Massager and Shampoo Brush
Scalp care is a very important part of hair care, but many guys don’t know where to start. Enter the scalp brush. This multi-use tool can be used to evenly distribute shampoo and conditioner, prevent and control dandruff, stimulate hair growth, and provide a quick head massage. $16, walmart.com
