Grooming Tips for The Confused Groom
In the Indian culture, we have always noticed the groom be the most ignored one when it comes to bits of advice on a special skincare routine, facials, regular massages, self-grooming, hairstyle trials.
All these things are purely set for the bride.
Directionless, the groom just saves his last-minute preparations for the D day, and ultimately stands there being even more unnoticed than ever before on his special day.
But with changing times, you can find many groom special skincare packages, grooming sessions, trial sessions, etc. doing rounds and are a rage these days even with the male population. (Yes – even besides the metrosexual men).
But waking up a week before and starting your preps don’t count in here. You need to be prepared at least about two months before your actual wedding day. Yes – the journey surely does begin from here.
Let’s begin with the best tips that might save you a lot of last-minute hassles and get you that perfect glow and let you both steal the show together in this journey.
Well, this is the most fundamental grooming step, which almost ever groom does follow without fail. But having your haircut trials well in advance would save you a lot of last-minute shocks, particularly when it doesn’t turn the way you wanted it to be.
Body and Facial Hair Growth
Similarly, your facial hair also needs some prior trials, since you need to check how a mustache or a beard shaped differently would look like and let it regrow later so that you can finalize the same on your wedding day.
Make sure you get rid of your excess body hair and moisturize your body regularly after that.
To get that extra radiance on your face, instead of running to a parlor, try using a facemask using the mixture of Besan (Gram flour), Dahi (Curd) and Raw Turmeric Powder, every other day. Apply it, let it dry and scrub it off to give your face and body a sheer glow. Make sure you follow this step every day up until your wedding.
Manicures and Pedicures
These again are not only specific treatments for the ladies out there. In case you are not the stereotypical shabby boy next door, you would know about it. But if you are one, then please make sure you groom your hands and feet by giving them that extra attention, which otherwise you have ignored all your life. Yes – these special hands and feet care treatments do exist my dear!
Remember the only thing that would be referred to after your wedding would be your wedding photo album. And you surely don’t want to show off your yellow teeth smiling back at you in those. Try rubbing Baking soda on your teeth after you brush – twice a day and get the sparkling shine on your D day.
Make sure your health is in an appropriate condition for your wedding. For this you need to start having proper wholesome meals (fresh fruits and lots of greens), a good amount of exercise and plenty of water intake to keep you sane enough, and moreover fit into your special suits for the special day.
A Little Makeup
Well, this one you can surely keep for about a week to the wedding day. Trials are certainly a must here since you do not want to look overly done or underdone for that matter.
Hope you rock your look for your special day with these special grooming tips and happy memories forever!
