4 Fresh Starts for 2014

New Year’s Resolutions are easy to make, and even easier to forget about. Instead of setting some unrealistic goal—like, “I want abs like Ryan Gosling”—think about some smaller, more attainable achievements in your grooming routine to help bring out your best self. Here are four quick and easy “fresh starts” to get you on your way. (But if you happen to find an easy way to get Gosling’s six-pack, do let us know.)

Whiten Your Teeth for a Brighter Future

When it comes to teeth whitening, the most effective measures are usually the most expensive and time-consuming. Get dentist-level results (without a visit to that dreaded chair) with the help of Supersmile’s Professional Whitening System. This one-two combo of toothpaste and accelerator work together to get your pearly whites back fast without any hassle.

Graduate to Badger Hair

A timeless tool for gents everywhere, a classic badger brush is another excellent addition to your upgraded shaving arsenal. Badger hair has been used to make shaving brushes for over two centuries, and during that time no synthetic has proven as good. The bristles of badger hair combine with shaving soap to generate a rich lather, all while lifting and softening beard hairs and exfoliating your face. Plus, it’s just plain awesome.

Dab Some Eye Cream Daily

Already onboard with daily moisturizing? Of course you are. The next step is a daily under eye treatment. Because the skin is so thin and sensitive, the area around your eyes is often the first to show signs of aging—so it’s best to get a head start with preventative measures. A good eye cream, like Kyoku for Men’s Eye Fuel, works to minimize wrinkles while simultaneously reducing dark circles and puffiness.

Take Better Care of your Dogs

Chances are, your feet are in rough shape. Show them some the love they deserve this year. A daily moisture treatment before bed will bring an end to dryness and cracking. Reach for this peppermint-scented rejuvenating salve from J.R. Watkins to restore the glory of the tough skin on your heels and toes. Or heck, make 2014 the year of the pedicure. After all, they’re Dwyane Wade-approved.
