Advanced glow-up tips for summer (under 500$)

Have you ever noticed how celebrities and rich people seem to be better looking than the average person? It's a harsh truth about life, but rich people do have access to expensive products, dietitians, personal trainers, and doctors, so they generally look more attractive.

The interesting thing is, glowing up isn't only about how much money you have—it's about knowing what works. While the rich pay skincare doctors and experts for this knowledge, you can get this for free in our newsletter.

We've compiled a list of proven products and strategies you'll need to glow-up before summer 2024 on a budget.

Keep An Eye On Your Eyes
Eyes are also the most neglected part of our face when we try to glow up. Attractive eyes are sharp, don't have eye bags and have groomed eyebrows up above. Unkempt eyebrows and slept-in eyes can ruin a person's look. The easiest way to tackle this is by:

Icing your face. This helps you and your eyes to 'wake up'. You don’’t have to actually use ice cubes, keep a jade roller in the refrigerator overnight to depuff your eyes with ease.

Frame your eyes. Too many guys neglect their eyebrows as part of their facial hair grooming routine.  Use a pair of tweezers to trim your unibrow and get rid of excess hair every month or so.

Reduce grey eyes bags. If you look like a zombie everytime you wake up, use an eye cream with caffeine in it first thing in the morning. Just like how caffeine wake up your brain in the morning, it can do the same for your skin!

Upgrade your skincare stack
I’m sure most of us already have a basic skincare routine in place. Now it’s time to maintain that skin 24/7. Since you’ve already built a healthy base of skim, it’s time to figure out ways to reduce inflammation on your face. Inflammation basically leads to every skin problem you’ll ever have. So if you’re doing everything right but not preventing your face from getting irritated, you’ll lose progress. Here’s what you can do:

Avoid greasy, spicy or processed foods. These wreak havoc on your gut and the reason why most skin problems pop up

Use vitamin C serum. Vitamin C boosts collagen production which’ll further shield your face from dust and irritants.

Change your razor blade often. Dull blades can cause irritation, nicks, and cuts by tugging at the hair instead of cleanly cutting it. Moreover, used razor blades can harbor bacteria and germs, risking of skin infections and irritation.

Pro tip: Prolong the life of your razor by using a shaving cream to soften hair follicees and lubricating the skin for a smooth, irritation free shave.

The Little Things Matter

Grooming is free but can do wonders for your appearance. Apart from the basics like washing your face and managing facial hair, there are numerous other aspects that guys often overlook.

Here's a few to remember:

Hydrate your lips. If you’re the type of guy who doesn’t like to carry chapstick around, use a lip mask overnight. Conditioning your lips with vaseline softens and smoothens the skin.

Pale skin due to lack of sunlight. With spring just around the corner, it’s the best opportunity to get that vitamin D.

Dry cracked hands from the gym. Imagine shaking hands with somebody and their hands are all dry and calloused. Either buy some gloves or moisturize after each gym session.

There you go,

These are the areas that confuse guys the most when they try to glow up. Adding your usual gym subscription in there, the total comes out to be less than $500. Make these tips a part of your everyday lifestyle to look your best 24/7.
