7 einfache Regeln für den perfekten Mann. Oder: Was ist männliche Schönheit?

And we already have two basic problems. First, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Secondly, we men are less used to exchanging "beauty tips". So what do we do?

Let's take a look at People Magazine , which names the Sexiest Man Alive every year. We took a closer look at the guys: What makes Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hugh Jackmann, Ryan Reynold, Channing Tatum, David Beckham or Blake Shelton (to name just a few) particularly attractive on the outside?

The result: Thanks to the People magazine, we were able to derive 7 rules for male beauty.

1. Find your style.

You don't want to chase any outfit trends and look like you've copied the hipest cale-flavored chai-latte drinking guy in Berlin-Mitte. Run the way you feel good. Of course, you can also try things out and be creative when choosing accessories, but: You don't have to reinvent the wheel every time to be as individual as possible.

And if you have no idea about good clothes (and in truth it doesn't matter to you - we men are not shopping queens either), get advice from the person you trust or use services such as outfittery . The people there put together very good packages and you save yourself long decision-making processes in crowded shopping centers.

2. Go exercise, sports lover.

The Sexiest Men Alive have one thing in common: they are all in good shape, are not overweight and have a tight posture. But lots of sporting exercise has other advantages as well: You freshen up your skin , get your circulation and digestion going, break down fat and build muscle. And you are doing something for your mental health!

Disadvantage? You have to outsmart your inner bastard and integrate sport as a priority in your everyday life. So it will help you to create incentives: Ideally, you go to train with your friends, so you are in good company, do something for your body and have a lot more fun in team sport.

3. Don't stuff everything into yourself just because you're hungry.

"You are what you eat" we have heard umpteen times and the truth is: there is something there. Nobody wants to look so unhealthy, greasy and melted like a sad burger of golden M. That's why it's all the more important that you check your eating plan. It includes:

Lots of vegetables, lots of legumes, grains, vegetable oils, fruits. But hardly any animal fats, hardly any meat and possibly no sugar. Not to mention alcohol.

But you can also demonstrate style when it comes to the food itself: surprise your date and cook for a change instead of taking it to the nearest steak house. Eat slowly and talk at dinner instead of eating everything. After all, eating is a social act - not a fattening event.

4. Care for your skin

We see three important factors for healthy skin: A lot of exercise and a healthy diet are already two of them. The third is the optimal skin care for men's skin. And that's not an easy thing, because good care products for men are comparatively rare on the market - and the skin of men needs very special care .

We at sober are working on getting the skin care you need as a man. For this purpose, we have formulated care products exclusively for men under scientific supervision, with which you can intensively clean and care for your skin. So you declare war on pimples, blackheads and wrinkles.

For facial cleansing we recommend our Gentle Facial Cleanser , for after-shave care the After Shave Repair Fluid and finally for hydrating the Hydra Defense Cream . You can get the products (and also stylish shaving tools) from us in the shop .

5. Don't provoke your skin

Let's not kid ourselves: we all get older and keep getting new wrinkles. But that doesn't mean that we have to look old faster than necessary. We must not irritate and irritate our skin unnecessarily, because it takes revenge in wrinkles, pimples, a pale complexion and weak connective tissue. That's why there are these important don'ts:

  • No alcohol, no cigarettes, no drugs.
  • No sunburn.
  • No aggressive interventions on pimples or blackheads.
  • Do not allow dry skin.
  • No parabens, silicones, mineral oils or alcohols in your care products!

6. Pay attention to the important details

What does healthy skin help you if your date has to look at your long nasal hair all the time? When it comes to good care, details matter: pay attention to cut, clean fingernails. Check if you only have hair where you want to see it - probably less in the area of the nose, ears or shoulders. Depending on your taste, less around the crown jewels - but we have not checked that with the Sexiest Men Alive.

7. Be satisfied

Look at Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Reynold and Co: none of them have a long face. They are satisfied, confident of victory and therefore successful. And indeed: that makes them attractive and sexy.

Perhaps this means, on the one hand, letting five be straight and enjoying the beautiful moments . Maybe it also means not going through life with the wrong ambition. It all depends on what type of man you are. We assume: If you landed on our site, it is someone who can do it.

Stay perfect and #staysober
