Grooming Tips for Every Groom to Know
Your bride is sure to dress up to the nines with her makeup and hair on point at her wedding. Have you thought of getting in the spotlight? Since it’s your D-day too, you need to look equally attractive. We all know guys always follow a laid-back approach when it comes to personal grooming. Since you might not be au faux with all those skincare and hair care routines and might end up wasting your time, we thought of lending a helping hand. To help you look your best at your wedding, we have curated essential grooming tips in the blog. Guys who are about to get married can groom themselves as mentioned in this guide and look & feel the best at the special event.
- Kick-Off a Skincare Routine
You might not be pushing the boat out on those skincare products, but incorporating the right products into your skincare routine can make a big difference to your skin health. If you do not like the notion of hitting a salon, start a skincare routine at home a month before your D-day. Wash your face with a natural or toxin-free face wash. If you have oily skin or a predisposition to acne, use a salicylic acid-based cleanser. Exfoliate your skin once a week with oatmeal or sugar scrub. After every gentle wash, moisturize your face with natural aloe vera gel and follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. If you need to de-tan, use a sandalwood and milk face mask or yogurt & tomato face mask twice every week. And do not forget to massage your face with a good night gel before going to bed.

- Splurge on the Right Skin, Bath and Body Products
As a guy who doesn’t know much about skincare, you might have been using products loaded with harmful chemicals. Such chemical-laden skincare products do more harm than good. Hence, it is critical to be mindful of the ingredients present in the products you use. Steer clear of stuff whose label has sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates, formaldehyde, Triclosan, and artificial fragrances & colors. It’s wise to read the labels beforehand to ensure you are on the safe side. If you have sensitive skin, test the skincare products and see what works for you and what doesn’t.

- Get Physically Active for a Fit Body
Who would want to slip into a sherwani or tuxedo and end up with belly fat popping out? When it comes to personal grooming, it’s only your skin that deserves to be pampered but your body needs the right care too. Engaging in frequent workout sessions will not only help you shed that extra fat from your body but also allow you to destress and feel energetic. So, plan to hit the gym or workout from the comforts of your home – whatever you fancy!

- Get Your Hair Fixed from a Pro
Guys are habitual of fixing their hair by themselves. While there’s nothing wrong with it, there’s a risk of messing up with your hair right before your wedding. To prevent unwanted scenarios, it’s good to seek professional help. Schedule an appointment with a men’s salon two days before the D-day to get your hair fixed. A pro will trim your facial hair, give you a nice haircut, and fix those nose hairs for a well-groomed look. We recommend updating your old haircut with a more on-trend & chic hairstyle for a dramatic look.

- Get a Manicure & Pedicure
Who says manicure and pedicure treatments are just for brides? Since guys have their hands and feet on full display on their D-day, it’s crucial to ensure they do not look dry, dull, or unkempt. Well, you do not have to go the extra mile to make your hands & feet look attractive. Simply book an appointment with your nearest salon and let the professionals take over. To prevent jagged nails, dry hands, and ragged cuticles, you can also invest in the right hand care, nail care & feet care products and use them routinely.

- Take Notice of Oral Hygiene
No one wants their mouth to smell bad, especially at their own wedding. If you are struggling from bad breath or want that much-coveted ‘pearly white smile’, be mindful of your oral health. To get a vibrant smile, start taking care of your oral hygiene. Brush your teeth with dentist-approved toothpaste in the morning and before hitting the bed. Visit a dentist and get your mouth and teeth cleaned a day or two before your D-day. You can also try a few DIY oral health remedies to maintain your oral hygiene. We recommend using a natural mouthwash and flossing daily. Try menthol to kill bacteria in your mouth and drink plenty of water. Do not consume too many sugary foods and desserts to keep your teeth in the best state of health.

- Get a Full-Body Wax
We have seen many guys for whom wax is a big no-no. But if you hate your busy hair and want a clean look, it’s wise to get a full-body wax before your special day. Well, you don’t have to bear that old-fashioned wax that tends to be more painful. Reputable salons use less painful versions and even suggest pre-wax hacks to help guys go through the waxing session peacefully. How about trying Ibuprofen or vodka right before the session? They can help you relax and help avoid those unwanted yells. Do not forget to follow aftercare instructions given by the salon for a soothing afterward experience.

- Opt for a Relaxing Spa
The burgeoning wedding day-related stress can affect your mental as well as physical health. To ease your stress and relax your body & mind, get a spa before your D-day. A full-body massage will melt down all your worries at least for a few hours. It will refresh your mind & body and make you feel energized so that you can continue with those stressful activities.
