When was the last time you updated your lackluster morning routines, boys? Maybe you feel as if you need a little extra boost to be more confident? or maybe you just need a little something more to impress the lady in your life?
Take it from none other than these two showbiz heart-throbs themselves for 5 essential grooming tips they simply can’t live without!
5. DRESS FOR SUCCESS AT ALL TIMES
“We are expected to live an ideal life, so arm yourself with the ideal tools that you need to reach for success” Robi shares with us. He believes that if you want success, you have to look the part. Whether it be attending interviews or commuting to and from work, always be confident and be presentable. You never know who you’ll meet or what opportunities you’ll come across, so it’s definitely a plus to be prepared!
4. TREAT YOURSELF TO A GOOD SHAVE
Kiefer stresses that one of the things that truly gives him a confidence boost is a good clean shave. “Ako, first thing in the morning, I shave. It gives me the confidence that lasts all throughout the day. Burns definitely aren’t sexy, so having a great shaver that won’t leave burns is a must!”
3. HAVING A GOOD SKIN CARE REGIMEN
Robi tells us that having a clean face is one of his most favorite feelings! Pollution, sweat, oil, and dirt. These are just a few of everyday irritants to the skin that leave it looking dry and dull, most often leading to skin problems like acne (yikes!) What a confidence downer! “To combat these everyday irritants is for you to really have a good face wash that you trust, it’s the best way to go”
2. ALWAYS SMELLING CLEAN
“Alam nyo ba yung amoy ma-effort, amoy alcohol na parang pinaghirapan talaga? Ang bango, ang linis. Well, millennials, we don’t want that ma-effort smell, we want to smell and look good effortlessly” Robi jokes. He achieves his effortlessly mabango scent with a premium fragranced deodorant that makes him feel confident and clean!
1. HAVE A COLD, COLD SHOWER (AT LEAST ONCE A DAY)
I know what you’re thinking. Why is this even on the list? Isn’t this supposed to be the bare minimum? Apparently, this is a step that some seem to overlook! No one will be able to smell your designer perfume if you still reek of yesterday’s sweat and oil. Living in a tropical country with tons of pollutants in the air, it’s definitely necessary to give your body the refreshing wash it needs at least once a day (or maybe even thrice a day–the amount Robi does it).
We got a chance to catch up with Robi and Kiefer at the Bro Bootcamp at Watsons where they shared all the grooming and papogi tips!
