Just like ladies pay attention to their looks, guys should do the same from  paying attention to their to their skin, grooming facial hair, posture, skincare and more men should always present their best looks everytime.

On this edition of Pulse Daily, Melanie is dishing on ten ways for guys to step it up a notch without looking too feminine or "two done".

Get to grooming guys, check out these pointers:

1. Trim the nose hairs.

This is something very basic that makes a world of difference. Believe me when I tell you this is something that people do notice. Don't let those black nose hairs poke out of your nose, its not so great to look at especially during close up conversations.

2. Trim the eyebrows.

I actually even recommend getting them professionally cleaned (not shaped) as this opens up the eye, keeping the face more alert looking. But if you are not up for it just trim any hairs that are out of line with a small pair of scissors.

3. Tame your facial hair etc.

This is something your barber can do for you monthly that gives the appearance of good grooming. The sight of long ear hairs, or neck hair going into the collar of your shirt, is never appealing.

4. Keep your nails short and clean.

Dirty, long fingernails require no explanation as to why they don't work. If your budget or schedule permits, try a monthly manicure/pedicure to have someone take care of this for you.

5. Brush and floss (use mouthwash mint and gum).

I've always believed that it doesn't matter if your teeth are not perfectly straight and white, but please keep them clean. I know this one seems simple, but trust me when I tell you to take nothing for granted. You might get a more attentive audience if your breath is fresh.

6. Cleanse your face on a regular basis with a facial soap.

I have so many male friends who use the same soap on their body that they use on their face. Most body soaps are too strong for the face. You must invest in a cleanser that is just for the face. There are many toilet soap/washes and wipes for men.

7. Scent/Fragrance

Theres nothing as good as walking by and leaving the smell of a gorgeous fragrance behind you.

It's all right to smell good, but don't go overboard using too much.

8. Match your belt to your shoes.

This one is really simple and makes a world of difference. If you are wearing black shoes, you don't wear a brown belt.

Have your clothes tailored to fit your body. This is a big one, as no matter what your shape is, the right fit makes everything look so much better.

9. Stand up straight.

Mom always told us that posture was important, and she was right. You create a sense of confidence and pride when standing tall, showing everyone you are secure in the man you are.

10. Pedicure/ Tame your feet.

Guys please try n take care of your feet. its so horrible to see nasty feet beneath a hot body or a handsome face. let the freshness flow from head to toe.
