Just like brides, grooms too, want to look picture-perfect at their wedding. So, how to feel confident on such a big day? Prior to the celebration, start paying proper attention to your beauty routine. If you're not sure where to begin - don't rush to panic. We've already compiled the best skincare tips for grooms-to-be. Find them below.
Determine your skin type
As you might already know, people have different skin types: oily, natural, dry, combination, or sensitive. So before taking any action, the first thing you need to do is to understand your own skin type. For this, you have to consult a dermatologist. A specialist will analyze your skin, determine your skin type, and, as a result, suggest a specific routine. Once you know yourself a little bit better, you may start investing in skincare products. But be careful! Always make sure you invest in the right products, or else your skin might show a reaction.
Cleansing, toning and moisturizing
A good CTM routine can work wonders! The cleansing routine will help you get rid of dirt and dead skin, toning will make your pores shrink, while moisturizing will keep your skin hydrated and fresh looking. Pick a regime best suited to your skin type and get ready to see the change. If you have oily skin, use mattifying toners and try to avoid oil-based products. In case you have a dry skin type, pay particular attention to the moisturizing step. Remember to wash your face twice a day! Sadly, there’s no magic spell to make you look good overnight, so start your beauty journey at least three months prior to the wedding.
Applying sunscreen is a must
Regardless of your skin tone, you need to wear sunscreen regularly. By doing so, you will protect your skin from UV rays, which we are exposed to once we step outside our house. If you are planning an open-air wedding, SPF-containing products are an absolute must. The proper and regular use of sunscreen reduces red spots and makes the skin tone more even. Plus, sunscreen is effective against the first signs of aging. What could be better? When looking for sunscreen, choose products that have skin-hydrating ingredients. Wear it over your moisturizer to make your skin even happier and fresher. During hot seasons, like summer, pick SPF 50 products. As for winter, SPF 30 is enough.
Consider having facials
Those who told you that facials are for women only — lied. In fact, the lines have long been blurred. Now anyone, no matter their gender, can easily find a beauty treatment suitable for their personal needs. Stress (especially wedding-related) undeniably takes a toll on the skin and mind, so make sure to be more attentive to how you feel. For example, having a good facial massage is an amazing way to ease that accumulated tension. Instead of doing it yourself, consider visiting a salon, and you will definitely not regret it! Having facial treatments once every two weeks can improve uneven skin tone as well as texture, and make it shine with radiance.
If you are not afraid of needles, consider non-surgical treatments like mesotherapy. It employs multiple injections of plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids into different parts of the face and body. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure improves the texture of the skin, its tone and even reduces scarring. Spotted some wrinkles? Anti-wrinkle injections can help. The treatment removes stress lines to create a healthier and fresher appearance.
