College Grooming Tips That Will Take You From Boy To Man

Photo by Jennifer Ryan Jones

If you’re headed off to college, you’ll want to get that shower caddy right. First, pick up all of the drugstore essentials. Get a pair of flip-flops, a toothbrush, toothpaste, eye drops and condoms. And then graduate from practicing basic high school hygiene to a more mature grown-ass man grooming routine. Freshman year is the perfect time to start investing in your future handsomeness. These products will take you straight to the head of the class.

There is nothing grosser than caked up soap in a plastic holder. Ditch the bar soap and start using body wash instead. Grooming Lounge Our Best Seller doesn't smell like your Mom's strawberry body wash. It's scented with zesty Black Pepper that will leave you feeling squeaky clean and energized. Your Lab partner will approve.

Zits are for kids! Or are they? Even though you've reached puberty, adult acne happens. Welcome to Taking Good Care Of Your Skin 101. You may have been taught that drying out your pimples with harsh cleansers and creams will clear up your complexion. False. Drying out the top layer of your skin can put sebum production into overdrive causing dirt and grime to get trapped underneath causing new eruptions. Opt for an acne treatment formulated with Salicylic Acid that exfoliates dead skin and bacteria but also hydrates with nourishing vitamins like Malin + Goetz Acne Treatment Daytime. If that doesn't work, change your disgusting sheets.

Now that you're on your own, there's no more sharing Dad's toolkit. This Tweezerman G.E.A.R. Essential Grooming Kit comes complete with a multi-use nail tool, tweezer, nail clipper and scissor. Perfect for cutting your claws, removing splinters and breaking into your college dorm room if you forget your keys.

College is about working hard and playing harder. Trust us; you'll be pulling a few all nighters in the library and elsewhere. Nobody has to know that you're a dirty stay out. Bounce back with Kiehl's Eye De-Puffer. It has energizing caffeine and soothing Arctic Root that will bring down the swelling and cool tired burning peepers on contact. Ahhh.

Dorm rooms can be overheated and dry. Stay lubed up with Jack Black Intense Lip Therapy. It has Shea butter to keep your kisser hydrated and cooling natural mint. This balm gets extra credit for freshening your breath and an automatic A+ for containing SPF 25.

You may have lofty beard goals for yourself but there will times when you'll want to take down the freshmen facial hair. No dude looks good sporting razor burn, redness or shaving irritation. Be prepared to smooth up for a formal, an internship interview and even graduation day. Make sure your razor has a fresh blade and that you're using a quality shave cream like Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream. This extra-slippery, no-foam, formula allows you to see exactly where your shaving.
