When it comes to weddings, it goes without saying that the focus is normally on the beautiful bride. This doesn’t mean however that the groom gets to take the easy route, as pre-wedding grooming and maintenance is just as important for men as it is women. If your big day is fast approaching and you’re looking for tips on how to make yourself look as sharp as possible in those all important wedding photo’s, take a look at these grooming tips that every groom should know.
Create a skincare routine
If taking care of your skin isn’t something you normally pay attention to, now is the right time to start. Skin conditions such as dry, oily or acne-prone skin aren’t something you’ll want to face when the big day comes, but luckily there are lots of treatments you can use to keep you looking your best. A few months prior to the date, remember to regularly wash your skin with a facial wash and use a good moisturiser. If you’re starting to show your age with wrinkles or dark circles, invest in an anti-aging product to leave you with a brighter, younger looking complexion.
Get a professional shave
When the long awaited day comes, you’ll want to look as smart as possible, so ensure you tidy up any unruly facial hair by getting a professional shave or beard trim. Ask your barber to also trim any nose or ear hair, and give overgrown eyebrow hairs a tweeze. Add the finishing touch to remaining facial hair by using some beard grooming products, and make sure you carry a small comb with you for touch up’s through the day.
Tidy up your hair-do
Another obvious step to take in your pre-wedding grooming routine is to book in for a hair appointment. Schedule your appointment approximately a week before the wedding, giving you time to practice some styling options in advance, and steer clear of any drastic new haircuts – it’s not the time for experimentation! For men whose hair is starting to thin, cover up any thinning or bald patches with a hair maker product that uses fibres to create the appearance of natural looking volume and thickness.
Make your smile sparkle
From endless photographs to relative reunions, your wedding day is bound to be filled with non-stop grinning, which is why it’s a good idea to take good care of your teeth in the lead-up to the big day. If your teeth could do with looking a little brighter, invest in a whitening treatment or simply brush regularly with a whitening toothpaste. It might also be worth scheduling an appointment to get a professional teeth cleaning to leave you looking and feeling as fresh as possible.
