An Asian man on video call meeting

Hearing your client says, "You're on mute," during a video call meeting should be the least of your worries because it's easier to come back from that than looking like a disaster. Getting in front of the camera with unkempt hair, oily skin, and an untidy beard is the equivalent of coming to work without taking a bath.

The thing is, some of us don't give much thought about their our appearance during video calls, thinking no one is paying attention. However, is that really the case? Now that messenger video calls have replaced those conference room huddles, it's important that you pay more attention to good grooming because your appearance will impact your professional growth. The impression you make during these virtual meetings can make or break your career.

Since computer cameras can sometimes alter the way you register on the screen, maintaining an effective skincare routine can go a long way in ensuring you look fresh during online meetings. The good news is, it doesn't require tremendous effort (nor does it cost a lot!). You just need to follow these simple yet essential habits:

Wash Your Face Regularly

Maintain healthy-looking skin by cleansing your face twice a day.

Washing your face each morning will remove dirt that can trigger acne. It also gives your skin a plump, invigorated look. If you sport a beard, regular washing becomes even more important. Cleansing your face twice a day can keep your skin from looking dull as well. Maintain healthy-looking skin with POND's Men Energy Charge Anti-Dullness Facial Foam. It contains coffee bean extracts and cooling menthol to energize your skin and give it an active glow.

Clean Those Pearly Whites

You’ll be smiling a lot on camera, so keep your teeth clean and white.

Brushing your teeth is still important even without face-to-face meetings because you'll be doing a lot of smiling on camera. If you eat breakfast before logging in for work, then it's even more important to get those bristles working. You don't want your boss or client to interrupt you while talking only to say, "You've got something in your teeth."

It doesn't even have to be up for negotiation. Any grooming kit for men needs to have these oral care essentials. Use closeup Red Hot Toothpaste to clean even the deepest corners of your mouth and kill 99% of bacteria.

Take a Shower

It can be really tempting to skip the shower because you’ll only be in a meeting for a few minutes anyway. As true as that may be for some, looking good starts with feeling good. And won’t you feel good after a nice shower? Aside from making sure you’re clean and refreshed to start the day right, showering in cold water increases circulation and maintains your ideal body temperature. When the cold shower hits your body, the initial shock increases oxygen intake, heart rate, and alertness—helping you wake up and feel more energized to start the day.

Keep Your Crowning Glory Glorious

Use a good anti-dandruff shampoo to keep hair clean and healthy.

Looking crisp and suave used to be easy by putting together a cool outfit. But now that no one will see what you’re wearing from the collarbone down, your hair becomes the focal point. You can style it with wax or simply comb it nicely. If you’re ditching the styling products, it’s important to keep hair naturally healthy and dandruff-free by using CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff for Men.
