For most men, body grooming involves walking a delicate line between looking like a caveman on the beach, or a member of BTS (Bangtan Boys a South Korean boys band). Then there are the more…unique aspects of grooming, involving places where the sun don’t shine. Having a regular skincare routine is so important! We have added a great checklist of men’s grooming tips that need to be considered for your wedding day! We are all about helping our grooms out!
The outfit for most grooms is pretty much decided. The classic black tuxedo with a bow-tie is an enduring traditional look. This look has stuck around through almost every change in the bridal fashion trend.
But, while a tuxedo is a sharp look for every man who puts one on, you can’t let it carry your entire appearance on your big day. There are important components beyond your tux that go into your final wedding day look.
When you look back on the commemorative photographs of one of the happiest days in your life, you’ll want to look back on the best version of yourself possible. Here are some essential grooming tips for the groom to look his best.
The hairstyle you choose is going to be one of the main aspects pulling your look together. This is why it is so important to get it right. The best advice is to stick with a style that you already know looks great. Make an appointment with your regular barber or hairstylist in the week leading up to your wedding day to ensure a fresh cut, and you’ll be good to go.
However, if you want to experiment with a new style, make your hair appointment at least a month in advance. You’ll appreciate the buffer time just in case the cut isn’t everything you wanted it to be. Also, when considering new styles, make sure to consider how it will look with the shape of your head. That way, you can avoid choosing a style that you know could look potentially unflattering.
The small details go a long way, especially when your outfit is as simple and clean-cut as a tux. Be sure that your nails are clipped and clean, your eyebrows are done, and your teeth are as white as possible will go a long way in not only improving your overall look but also in boosting your confidence. Your partner will appreciate the added effort you took as well.
Making time for a spa day with your significant other is a great way to cover all your bases when it comes to managing these smaller details, but you can also do it yourself at home. Take a tweezer to your eyebrows with the guidance of an online guide, break out the nail clipper or nail file, and consider getting white strips to ensure a picture-perfect smile.
Waking up on your wedding day with an unattractive, bright red pimple is a worst case scenario that you should take steps to avoid at all costs. You can ensure a healthy, clear complexion by making sure you practice a regular skin care routine. If you don’t already, this means that you should use a gentle face routine wash at least every night followed by a moisturizer to combat dry skin, oily skin, signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles and clogged pores.
Effectively managing your facial hair is another aspect of proper skincare that is sometimes overlooked. If you’re breaking out or experiencing razor burn after every shave, it’s a sign that you need to switch up your shaving habits. It’s best practice to exchange your razor blade for a fresh one every 6-8 shaves. Otherwise, storing your razor away from water can help prevent bacteria build-up that causes breakouts. Taking the time to recognize how to navigate the grains of your facial hair can do wonders in avoiding unwanted skin reactions as well.
Working out regularly carries essential health benefits, like boosting your happiness and helping you effectively deal with stress. If you don’t already have a work out routine, use your wedding day as an excuse to start working out towards a fitness goal. Achieving the goal will not only help you build muscle or slim down, but it increases your self-esteem and confidence.
Finding a workout that fits in your schedule and works for you is essential in sticking with a fitness regime. Even taking the time for a walk during lunch at work can do wonders for your heart health. Getting your significant other involved as a workout buddy is also a fun, productive way to spend time together as a couple
