Let’s Make You the Best Groomed Man at Your Wedding

Health and beauty routines weren’t only made for women. Men need the same care, too! A lot of those outdated stereotypes actually add more pressure on the groom when he feels like he doesn’t deserve to be treated the same. Yes, there are way more details that go into the bride’s self-care routine but that’s mainly because of the social pressure and the norms that we’ve been raised to believe.

Here are 9 self-care advices to take to heart before your wedding day:

1. Cleanse your face right:

A lot of guys actually believe that washing your face means grabbing the nearest soap bar and smearing your face with it. Let’s unlearn that right now! Human beings have different types of skins (Dry, sensitive, oily, etc.), and every skin type requires a particular kind of face wash. Next, you got to buy face scrub and use it twice a week, at least, to exfoliate your way through soft and blemish-free skin. 

2. Hydrate:

Drinking water is what life comes down to, that’s a known fact. But besides all of that, staying hydrated helps keep your skin smooth and delays the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You need to start drinking eight glasses of water a day three months before the wedding and continue doing so for the rest of your life.

3. Take care of your skin:

Your skin and complexion get affected by sun exposure and cold weather, so why be aware of that and still choose to neglect your health? The earlier you start paying attention to the health and appearance of your skin, the later in life you’re going to deal with signs of aging. Skincare includes moisturizing using a proper face cream that goes with your skin type and wearing sunscreen during all seasons.

4. Follow the main rules:

Don’t last minute this. Don’t start using face masks and creams 48 hours before the wedding thinking that some miracle is going to somehow happen because this is not a Hollywood Christmas movie. Start your health and beauty routine 3 months before if you’re a lazy one because it’s simply useless to start later than that. Masks are fantastic for the skin, try them and you won’t ever stop using them.

5. Choose the right skincare products:

It’s best to actually consult a dermatologist or a pharmacist before randomly buying a bunch of skincare products, especially if you don’t have naturally clear skin.

6. Beard care:

If you’re a guy who prefers short beards and stubbles, then pay attention to your hair growth rate so you can know when exactly to shave or trim before your wedding. If you’re used to shaving so often, then it’s time for a full hot towel shave! It’s both calming to you and beneficial to the skin because it softens your hair, opens your pores, and readies your skin for shaving.

7. Hair trimming:

It all depends on the way you style your hair, really, but either way, you need to pay your barber a visit one week before the wedding in order to get things straight and set a clear plan. Drastic hair changes can change how you look completely, so it’s best to get a haircut 4 days before the wedding. Our advice is, don’t suddenly change the way you style your hair before your wedding because it’s not worth the risk. After all you are the groom!

8. Visiting your dentist:

Paying your dentist a visit three months before your wedding is essential and it would definitely be better to go before that if you have any sorts of dental problems, or want to polish, scale, or whiten your teeth. You don’t have to wait for a problem to arise in order to visit your doctor.

9. Getting that massage:

Take time for yourself, pamper your body and senses, and don’t be afraid to slow down and unwind from all the groom's tasks you've been taking care of. Getting a proper massage is an ultimate way to attend to your health and beauty by ridding your body of anxiety, nervousness, and tension. If you can’t get a massage, then take a long, hot bath.
