Ronaldo may not be winning the World Cup, but he rocks a moisturiser

What men can learn from this soccer hottie

There’s no doubt that many female fans of football were disappointed that Cristiano Ronaldo and his team, Portugal, were sent home last week. He missed out on the chance to win the Golden Boot of the tournament and our screens got a little less dazzling. But now that the soccer is out of the way he will have more time for his grooming regimen.
Ronaldo has been in the spotlight for the last few weeks, so there’s been a lot of debate about whether he has gone under the knife and, while there is no evidence that he’s had a bit of nip and tuck, we can’t deny that he is king of the grooming game. Want in on his defined eyebrows and skin so smooth it makes ladies melt? Here are a few tips to help you score like CR7.
HAIRFor an on and off the pitch look, you can’t go wrong with a fade hairstyle (hair at the sides and back is cut as close as possible with clippers and “fades” or tapers up to any length on top) . Keep your fade trimmed with a Wahl portable clipper and keep it sleek by using the L’Oreal Studio Line Invisi’hold 24h Natural Clear Gel Extra Strength 8. The gel doesn’t leave hair with a visible residue and holds it for up to 24 hours in your desired style without stickiness, stiffness or flaking.
EYEBROWSEyebrows define the face so men should take the time to get them perfectly sculpted. Men who want to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo, that is. Don’t have time for a lengthy waxing appointment? Keep your eyebrows in check by shaping them with a trimmer or use an old toothbrush to maintain a natural arch.
SKIN
The key to maintaining a healthy glow is to stay hydrated with lots and lots of water. To achieve clear skin with no visible pores use Clinique, For Men Exfoliating Tonic, a gentle exfoliation lotion for dryness, perfect to use for combination to oily skin types in the T-zone. For an even tone use the Vaseline ‘MENface’ SPF moisturiser which contains Vitamin B3 to help even out dark marks. It effectively protects the skin from the harsh sun – even in winter.LIPS
Keep your lip service regime simple with a monthly exfoliation to help remove dead skin. To exfoliate use a sugar scrub and gently rub it on your lips. Post-exfoliation, use the REN Vita Mineral Lip Balm, formulated to replenish dry and chapped lips. It will help to repair, protect and soothe irritated lips, while restoring softness, and elasticity.
Now that you have the face all sorted ... let’s work on the body.
