Every musician needs to make themselves a brand and this is through the type of music that they play, and the way that they carry themselves. It is easier for fans to associate with a brand and easier to gather more fans if your brand is well managed. One of the things that make a good musician is the way that they carry themselves. They can groom themselves in certain ways and every time that people come across that type of grooming, they will associate it with a certain musician. In this article, we are going to look at how to be well groomed. Whether grooming is good or bad could actually depend on the way that people look at it, because beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Staying Kempt on a Daily Basis
You should ensure that you’re well-kempt, meaning bathing every day, using deodorant to ensure you smell fresh, brushing teeth at least twice a day, flossing, shaving or grooming, and carrying essentials, which can include lotions, combs, perfumes, mints, and mirrors. Hair styling is also important for both men and women.
Dressing the Part
The clothes worn should be clean and de-pilled, and one should enjoy wearing them. When people like the clothes that they wear, they tend to care better for their condition, and it even boosts their self-esteem. The clothes should be well fitting. Shoes should be dry and polished, and a decent fragrance should finish the look. Good scents tend to boost the mood and bring down the stress levels. Any leather clothing items that you own should be treated regularly, cleaning away any dirt with a damp cloth and ensuring that the leather doesn’t get wet. You need to care for your look in all ways as this is the best way to be well groomed.
Home Laser Hair Treatment – 5 Things to Keep in Mind
One of the ways that people can groom themselves is by getting rid of excess hair. That is why we are now going to look at five things to think about when it comes to laser hair treatment.
A do-it-yourself hair removal procedure is only as good as the operator behind it
Do it yourself laser hair removal requires patience and practice in order to perfect. This will make it easier for you to regulate the pain in a tolerable way and also get rid of all the unwanted hair.
You will likely have side effects
Being that you’re not a professional laser hair remover, chances are that you’ll experience some side effects that could include skin irritation, redness and swelling, pigment changes, blisters, and skin crusting. You should also know that cancer is something that you could also get as a result, a couple of years down the line. It is best to get advice from a dermatologist before proceeding with the home laser hair removal.
Different hair types respond differently to laser treatment
Not all hair is the same with some hair being very finely-coloured, another hair type being course. Course hair is easier picked up by the laser. Being that laser is attracted to pigmented hair means that those with light blonde, light red or white hair could also have a problem. The skin type also matters although all skin types can be removed by laser, thanks to technology. Just ensure that the right laser works for your skin type, and this can be done through a process known as the Fitzpatrick Skin Type. The Fitzpatrick skin types are six in number as below:
- Fitzpatrick Type I refers to white, fair skin that doesn’t tan or sunburn easily, and it goes best with the Alex laser type.
- Fitzpatrick Type II refers to skin that doesn’t tan easily and easily gets a sunburn, and it goes best with Alex laser.
- Fitzpatrick Type III refers to beige skin and if it hasn’t been overexposed to the sun, it can go well with an Alex laser.
- Fitzpatrick Type IV is medium brown skin, and depending on the amount of melanin, can use YAG-style razor.
- Fitzpatrick Type V is skin that tans easily, and one can use a YAG razor.
- Fitzpatrick Type VI refers to the darkest skin type, and one can use a YAG razor on the highest setting.
