Posted: Aug 14, 2020
The men of this world aren't given instruction manuals on how to groom ourselves to flawless, head-turning perfection. A lot of the time we're taking our best guesses, and going off what we hear through word of mouth. To help you from flailing, here are five grooming tips for any man who is committed to looking the absolute best that he can.1. Invest in a beard kit.
The quarantine beard needs all the tender love and care that it can get. It's not enough to just let the beard do its thing. Investing in a kit is a solid step in the right direction.

The hype that goes into these kits is certainly well-warranted. They ensure we've got everything we need, in one place.2. Keep the beard trimmed.
There comes a time in the life of every man's beard, when it evolves from an itchy nuisance to a beautiful, budding display of life. We can become sentimentally attached, and will ourselves into foolishly believing that an unkempt beard is as appealing as a trimmed beard. This is not the case. We've got to keep the beards trimmed. Just a little bit of trimming goes a long way. So, best invest in a nice trimming kit.3. Fight greasy skin with jojoba oil.
Jojoba Oil is an effective skin cleanser and moisturizer. Jojoba Oil acts as a sebum and moisturizes our skin and hair when the body isn't doing it naturally. On the flip side, when our sebum levels rise, we can end up with acne. In this case, Jojoba oil works to remove excess oil and keeps everything balanced. Not only that, but the healthy oil also feeds the hair follicles and encourages hair growth.4. Add NAD supplements to your routine for studly skin.
Who would've known that tapping into the fountain of youth and increasing our life span is as simple as restricting the number of calories consumed? But what's the best way to go about restricting those calories? It's not as easy as skipping meals and swapping the fries for side salads. No, it's best to take a scientific approach when working to increase something as life-changing as our longevity. This is where we turn to our star players, NAD supplements.
Before we dive into taking NAD supplements as a dietary supplement, let's go over the facts. What is NAD? NAD or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is an essential coenzyme that can be found within every cell of the body. Unfortunately, our body's levels of NAD decline with age. That's the last thing we want. NAD plays two crucial roles in the body. It converts nutrients into energy and also acts as a helper molecule for proteins that are busy regulating other cellular functions.
So, considering the fact that we want to help promote those processes, and ensure they run smoothly as possible, let's consider what NAD supplements can do for the human body. NAD supplements have been proven through clinical trials to cut obesity, decrease blood pressure, boost metabolism, and improve cognitive function. If those positive side effects aren't already enough to marvel at, then how about the fact that NAD supplements can encourage collagen production, which can promote skin elasticity (cutting down on those wrinkles)?
According to a study conducted in 2017, NAD levels increased by 40% in humans who were administered NAD supplements. Considering all that we know about the positive effects of healthy NAD levels in the body, this is welcoming news.
With these four indispensable grooming tips to stow away in the back pocket, there's nothing stopping you from sporting the kind of beard that fills the hearts of fellow men trying to grow their own beards, with maddening envy. Plus, those NAD supplements will increase the energy levels, boost metabolism, and encourage youthful skin elasticity.
