Manscaping has become exponentially popular in the last ten years. With gender steroetypes collapsing more and more, many men  are starting to realize that manscaping isn’t a bad thing. It is important to keep up with your hygiene and look after yourself. First, let’s go over what manscaping is and what it isn’t.

What is Manscaping?

Manscaping is defined as the removal or trimming of hair on a man’s body in order to have a cosmetic effect. Basically, it is making sure that you are presentable and well groomed. Some people may think that manscaping only refers to trimming below the belt, but that it not the case. Manscaping should be a full routine to look after your hygiene that includes trimming, shaving, and even skin care. That is why in this article, we will discuss a full manscaping routine that goes deeper than just body trimming. You can decide which parts you want to do but we recommend that you do all of them. However, if you are only interested in trimming, that’s fine. 

The bottom line is no mater how you define manscaping for yourself, you should at least have a consistent routine. In today’s world, women prefer guys who are well kept and that’s just the way it is. Back in the day, hairy chests and lackluster manscaping routine were far more accepted. Now, things are very different. Whether it is celebrities, movie stars, or athletes that are influencing this trend, it is here to stay for now. So you might as well learn how to manscape. 

The Benefits of Manscaping (It's Not Just About Looks)

Many men think manscaping is just about looking better, and it is to a certain extent, but that’s not all that manscaping offers. Manscaping can improve other aspects of your life as well.

Improved Hygiene: Tons of body and pubic hair can be detrimental to your overall hygiene. It can trap moisture and end up causing irritation. Also, bad odor can be carried more easily by men who have tons of body hair. No one wants to be the guy that smells bad. 

Peace of Mind: Having a consistent manscaping routine really creates stability in a man’s life. You don’t have to constantly itch down there and be worried about it all the time. This is a very underrated benefit of manscaping.

Confidence: You know what they say; look good, feel good. If you feel confident about the way your body looks all the time, it will translate into other areas of your life. Being a well groomed individual will definitely improve your confidence.

How to Manscape:

Part One: The Beard

If you like to have a beard, that is completely okay. However, you should keep it neat and tidy. It is recommended that you use a 3mm trim guard and shave every 2-3 days to keep your beard in optimal condition. Make sure to keep the neck trimmed as well, take two finger above your Adam’s apple and that where you should trim your beard. Also, it is a great idea to use a beard oil so that your beard is soft, hydrated, and smells amazing. We have an article on the best beard oils if you want to take a look. 

Part Two: Arm Hair

You usually don’t have to do too much with the arms. To keep them neat, you should trim your arms every 3-4 weeks with your trim guard. Also, make sure to shave against the grain and go slowly to ensure that you do not cut yourself.

Part Three: Chest and Ab Hair

With the chest and abs, just glide your trimmer against the grain and go slow. Not only will trimming your ab and chest feel more comfortable, it will also make your abs and chest look far more aesthetic. This is probably the easiest parts of your body to trim because you can see it and know exactly what you’re doing. You can decide what length you want your trim guard to be.

Part Four: Pubic Area

This is one of the most essetinal parts of the manscaping routine. You want to be very careful when trimming in the pubic area. Also, it is recommended that you trim, not shave. Shaving can cause lots of irritation and redness. When you begin trimming, go against the grain and use a trimmer guard. Using guard will drastically decrease the chances that you cut yourself. One tip that is severely underrated is using a hand mirror to see what you’re doing from different angles. 

Part Five: Leg Hair

Many men have super hairy legs. While it is not optimal to completely shave your legs, you should trim them every now and then. Use a relatively long trim guard and shave against the grain. Make sure to be very careful when you get to your knees because that area is very sensitive and easy to cut on accident. 

Part Six: Armpit Hair

It is up to you whether or not you want to trim your armpits. Some men may not like to have a trimmed armpit look and that’s okay. If you do want to trim your armpits, use a relatively long guard length and trim every month or so. 

Part Seven: Skin Care

Although skin care isn’t included in most manscaping routines, it is still very important. Here are the pillars to an effective skin care rotuine. If you want more information, check out this article
