Ok first of all, there’s something I don’t like about the word ‘grooming’. I’m not saying I have a better word to use, it’s just that it sounds like something you’d do for your dog. Now that that’s out of the way, there are a few things a girl does to her body to make it look and feel good – mostly she does it for herself and not for her man (unlike popular belief). And if you think the men don’t do it too (mostly for the women in their case), you thought wrong! Turns out men and women go through pretty much the same grooming rituals, for different reasons of course! Take a look…

1. Hairy situation

Ain’t no pain like the trauma you feel when you wax, amirite? But ladies, you’ve been doing this since you were 13 years old and men didn’t even have armpit hair at that age! Once they’re 20 however, chests get hairier, backs get bear-like (bear-ier?) and don’t even get me started on that armpit!

P.S. We’re not the only ones taking care of the field down under.

2. Axe-factor

As women, we have one thing on our side. We don’t smell as much as men tend to sans deodorant! While we delicately use one spray on our bodies, men look like this when they’re getting their smell on…

3. Lotion in motion

Ashy elbows and knees are a big, big no-no, and girls know it all too well! Meanwhile, the men who love these women now know it too and spend as much time as women do moisturising their bodies to smooth goodness.

4. Toe-be Bryant

Ok it’s confession time – I don’t like feet! So for someone like me to even be able to look at a guy’s feet, they don’t need to be model feet, they just need to be clean. And this can’t just be me, because men all over the world get pedicures – and NOT just because the girls like it.

5. Mane men

Ok they might not iron, curl or dye their hair as much as we do, but you can’t deny that they spend hours trying to set it into the perfect hawk.

See, they’re just like us and I have one last thing to add – while most women have to go through these, not all men do it – I wish they would though!
