Sometimes, looking presentable and smelling good is the only difference between scoring personality points. So, we came up with this lift of quick and simple tricks you can try when you are pressed for time or even do them on the go. The trick isn’t to spend a fortune on hundreds of products or to get locked into front of a mirror for hours. Rather it’s about a routine that’s quick and simple and ultimately helps you win those brownie points when it counts to making an impeccable presentation.
INVEST IN MULTI-TASKING PRODUCTS:Use products that double-up – like a moisturiser that includes SPF or a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner or a dry shampoo when you are really struggling to keep time.

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAIR GEL, WAX OR POMADE AND SERUM: The easiest way to save time on hair products is to actually know what each one is good for. Gel is thinner in texture and gives you a slick, wet look with not a hair out of place and also leaves your hair stiff. Wax or pomade on the other hand is great for everything from smoothening a weirdly stubborn cow slick to creating a sculpted style and leaves hair with considerably more movement so you have the option to comb it through the day. And serum is what you use post shower for a quick boost of moisture and to get rid of frizz.
KEEP A FACE SPRAY HANDY:The quickest way to give your skin a burst of moisture and freshness through the day is a face spray. It also opens up tired eyes and keeps pores unclogged. Keep one in your car or in your desk drawer for easy access at all times.
SOFTEN SKIN BEFORE SHAVING:Most men complain how shaving takes up all their morning time. Well, the quickest ways to cut that time by half is apply a moisturising shaving foam three to four minutes before you shave. This will give you a cleaner shave. Next – don’t shave over the sink but in the shower instead. The hot steam from the shower further softens the hair and opens up the pores so shaving will be easier. Also you won’t have to spend extra time cleaning the sink after you’re done.
USE WIPES BEFORE DEO:Hand wipes or even hygiene wipes are a great way to get rid of excess sweat or even that stale AC smell. Swipe your underarms with wipes and then spray on deo. This will also ensure the deo lasts longer.
