6. Shave while taking a bath

The twenties mean busy schedule, which leaves us with little or no time to pamper our skin. If you don’t have time to go to a salon and get waxed as often as you wish you could and prefer shaving, then the best way is to shave while you take a bath. That’s because your hair becomes softer in the shower, making it easier to remove. What’s better than completing two tasks in a short period, eh, ladies?

7. Olive oil to clean your ears

7 grooming hacks

We generally use Q-tips when we want to get rid of the earwax. But, it’s not safe to push them deep into your ears. To clean your ears easily and gently, dip a Q-tip in olive oil and clean the inner and outer ears with it. It helps prevent the buildup of wax and keeps your ear clean and healthy.

8. Buff your nails immediately after the shower

The best time to trim or buff your nails is when you’re right out of the shower. Continuous contact with water make your nails quite soft, so it’s a good idea to trim them at that time. You won’t have to struggle to get the desired shape or try too hard to trim them, as your nails are soft.
