Grooms! Listen up! That old ‘soap and water’ routine won’t cut it for your big day. Your Bride to be is already working on her skin care, now it’s your turn.
If you don’t already have a skin care regime, then read on below. If you do, then here are some additional tips that may be of some use.
There doesn’t really have to be a huge difference in the regime that you and your fiancé follow. The likely difference is going to be with the products that you use. For a more in-depth regime, check out my bride-to-be. They just need to be tailored to you!
Exfoliate, scrub, or polish! Whatever you choose to call it, you need to revive dead skin and nothing does this better that exfoliation. At least 2-3 times a week. Skin on the face is delicate, so a gentle exfoliant is best. There are some great ones on the market that do different things. Exfoliating is also a good way to help protect against razor bumps. I tell you more about that here.
Dry? Oily? Sensitive? Huh? You may already know what you skin type is but if not, then now is a great time to find out. You may be putting any and everything on your skin and it may be doing more harm than good. Check out my blog on skin types, here. Once you have an idea, start using products designed for your skin type. You don’t have to dump what your currently using but read up on it first. Then only buy what you really need.
Wash your face at night before you sleep! Most men go to bed without cleansing the skin, let alone anything else. Imagine all the clogged up dirt and grime (just on the surface) that has accumulated since you washed your face this morning. Don’t believe me? Borrow a wipe from the other half, baby wipe will do, (ok! flannel) and wipe your face. The gunk that comes off, works it’s way into the skin as you sleep.
Grease that skin! Moisturise and lotion your face in the morning and at night. Help put some moisture back into the skin. Your skin will repay you by looking fresher, younger and brighter. Actually, don’t just do your face, the hands, feet and whole body will love you for it.
Flawless Face! There are many men who choose to wear foundation on their Wedding day. Whether for coverage due to scars, skin conditions or wanting a flawless face in pictures. Make-up is not just for the women and it is time we all accept this. We don’t have the right to judge. If you are planning on make-up think about a trial and know what products do- especially if you will be applying the make-up yourself.
That wasn’t too hard now was it? Of course there are additional things we can all do for our skin such as cutting back or giving up alcohol and smoking. Drinking more water and exercising will also benefit our skin and not just for upcoming nuptuals… but always.
Hope you enjoyed this post. You can always get at me if you have any questions, queries or just wanna talk make-up, skin, beauty and more.
Until next time…
