Wedding Day Grooming? For The Groom
15th March 2014
There is countless advice at the ready for brides-to-be about how to prepare for their big day, but what about the groom-to-be? They want to look their best as well. We have put together a check list for grooms on how to prepare for their wedding day.
There are three elements to hair: head hair, facial hair, and body hair. For the photos, you will want the best haircut and shave, and for the wedding night you want to make sure you are fully prepared.
Book an appointment a few days before your wedding, and give some thought into what style you want it to be cut. Take a picture in if you know exactly what you want to minimise any disappoint and stress in the days leading up to the big day.
If you’re looking for a clean shave look that keeps your skin soft and smooth then we recommend you first cut it as short as it will go, then get some pre-shaving oil or even baby oil and rub it into the skin. It’s important to shave when your pores are open, so during or just after a shower is ideal. Apply shaving cream containing aloe and vitamin E and apply it with a shaving brush. The final step is to use a moisturiser.
There are multiple areas of the male body that might need a wax; feet, chest, back, arms, and even your bottom. Waxing is quick and simple with relatively long lasting results.
However, there are a few things to mention; it hurts, never wax your nipples or genitals and make sure you trial it about 2 months before the wedding so you know what the results will be like and you're not left with any shocks. If you are looking for a more permanent hair removal for men then there are affordable laser hair removal treatments at specialised clinics.
Nowadays wedding photos sometimes last longer than the marriage itself, especially with social media. How you look on your big day will follow you for ever so it's important to have your photo smile perfected. A simple at home teeth whitening trick is to mix a small amount of baking soda to water into a paste. Brush your teeth with this twice a week and it will give your teeth a nice polish as well as get rid of any bad breath.
Exchanging rings with your bride is the pinnacle moment of the wedding ceremony, so make sure your hands look good. Make sure you use hand moisturiser specifically designed for men, and keep your nails clean by removing any dirt.
If you have a very physical job or do a lot of DIY around the house then you may find yourself with calluses on your hands. To get rid of them, you will need to crush 5 aspirin tablets and mix with ½ tsp of lemon juice and water. Put the paste over the calluses on your hands, wrap your hand in a warm towel and put in plastic bag.
You may want to do one hand at a time, 10 minutes for each hand. Once you have taken it all off, use a pumice stone to rub the calluses off. NB: Do not try this is you are diabetic.
