Grooming tips for business travelers in monsoon

While grooming to your finest is a prerequisite for any business traveller, during the monsoon, you must take your grooming tips up a notch to tackle the humid weather and the odd splash of rain here and there. If you think you are doing your best, think again! We have a few tips that will help take your grooming game to the next level.

Hair Care

Contrary to popular belief that one can skip a hair wash during the monsoon, it is more important to wash your hair at least every alternate day if not everyday. This will ensure that your hair is free from dust and grime. The important thing here is to use a mild shampoo and conditioner as they will help you to retain the normal texture of your hair. Keep hair products like hair wax and gel at bay as they aren’t the most monsoon friendly products. Keeping a short hairstyle that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance will help ensure that your hair is at its finest best.
If you do grow a beard, ensure that it is well maintained and trimmed at regular intervals.

 

Nails
Keeping your nails well cut and cleaning them from time to time is of the utmost importance especially when it’s open season for all the bacteria and germs out there. There is no shame or anything feminine about a man getting a manicure/pedicure. A manicure/pedicure will ensure that your nails are clean and monsoon ready.

Deodorant
We can’t stress on this enough! Everyone must invest in a deodorant that suits their body and at the same time helps keep the perspiration away. With the humidity in the air on the rise, it becomes ever so important to invest in a deodorant that keeps away body odour.
Because let’s face it, no one points out if someone isn’t smelling great but if you aren’t, that is noticed quicker. So save yourself from the embarrassment of body odour and keep a deodorant handy with you at all times.
Accessories
While we may all awe at the marvel of leather goods and its finish, the rains do not take kindly to leather and leather products. A few splashes and your beloved leather bag’s lustre will start to fade, the material will stretch out and will eventually give way. No one would like to see you carrying around a worn out leather bag on your business trip.
It is best if you keep your leather items stored away safely and opt for substitutes like TPU leather (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) or Faux leather. Materials like TPU leather and Faux leather give your accessories the look and feel of leather but these do not give way as easily as leather and can handle a few splashes. Again, that does not mean that these materials are water resistant. Care must still be taken to ensure they do not get wet in the rains.

Shoes
Like we mentioned above, keep your leather items locked away and that includes your shoes. Opt for TPU leather shoes during the monsoon and ensure you have the ever classy formal look when you travel. The high level of humidity in the air coupled with the splashes that your shoes undergo might make your shoes smell unpleasant. But don’t worry, we have a simple hack for you! Carry around spare unused tea bags and keep one in every shoe overnight every time you feel there might be unpleasant odours emanating from your shoes. This trick isn’t just limited to your formal shoes and works for your sneakers and running shoes too!

So these were a few tips that will ensure that your grooming does not take a hit this monsoon. A compromise on grooming is a big no-no, all it requires is a little bit of thought and voila! you’re all ready to take your grooming to the next level. And always remember- “Function over Fashion.”
So feel free to add grooming tips that you have created on your own for the monsoons.

Take care of your skin
Your face is the first thing that gets noticed. Always keep your skin fresh and healthy. However, even though your face gets noticed the most of the time, that does not mean that you ignore the rest of your body. Apply a good moisturiser on your face and as well on your body. When going out, make sure you apply sunscreen since the sun causes a lot more damage to your skin than you’re aware of. Also, do not let your lips looked chapped. Use a lip balm regularly to make sure your lips are well moisturised.
