Skincare Tips

We agree that taking care of your skin in this pollution is a tough task and especially when you travel everyday for work! But, how about we give you some tips & tricks for your skincare so that you can have a healthy and glowing skin for your wedding day? From following a CTM routine everyday to paying regular visits to your dermatologist, here are the 6 tips that can work wonders to get that glass-skin! 

 

1. Wash Your Face

Some of you might be thinking “iski kya zarurat thi, ye to pata hai”. But it’s time to admit guys that most of the boys don’t even wash their face properly. They just splash some water and done! Make a habit of using a face wash to cleanse your face because soap can dry your face. In fact, be it the removal of dirt, oil or unwanted pollutants - washing your face will not only keep your skin hydrated but will also ensure to maintain your PH level balance and help to keep up the proper pore size so that your skin doesn't build up an excess oil! 

2. CTM

Being one of the favorite regimes of the bride, CTM routine is something that is also highly recommended for the grooms-to-be! CTM is the first step towards your glowing skin where C stands for cleansing, T for toning and M for moisturising. After cleansing your face with a face wash, make sure you use a toner like Rosewater as it will help to close your pores & cut the penetration of any impurities. Once, you have ticked off the cleansing and Toner step, then make sure to apply a good moisturizer suiting your skin type cos I am sure you don't want to have a dry skin and show the signs of acne for your wedding day! So, grooms if you want to have healthy and clear skin, then follow CTM regime twice a day (Morning & before going off to bed!) to get better results!

3. Exfoliate

We know you must be super busy in your wedding madness but taking care of your skin is something that should be your top priority. Now that you've started following a CTM routine (pat yourself,guys!) it is also important that you remove the dead skin from your face. Moving forward, make sure you exfoliate or scrub your skin on a regular basis. As it will rejuvenate your skin and will remove the blackheads you may also use a scrub to do the procedure. Tip: Take a small amount of face scrub in your hands and rub your wet face in a circular motion. Make sure to put stress on your forehead, chin area and nose. Once, done clean your face with water & just pat your face with a clean towel to get a glowing skin!

1. Oiling Your Hair is a MUST

We know that you are not a big fan of Oil but to remove the frizziness from your hair, massage your hair with an oil so that you have healthy hair from inside and outside. In fact, before every hair wash, you can also apply oil on your hair for an hour as it will make your hair stronger and smoother. Tip: Coconut oil and olive oil are considered good for your hair! 

2. Reduce Chemicals & Start Applying Herbal Hair Masks!

Most of the guys we know have a habit of putting hair gel and spray on their hair. But just a reminder guys, these products are harmful to your hair. So, if you don’t want to lose your hair just before your wedding, reduce the usage of these chemicals and opt for herbal hair masks to make your tresses healthier and shiner. 

3. Go For Your Favorite Hair Spa Sessions! 

How exciting it sounds, right? If you love going to salons and spending hours after that stressful day, then we have a good news for you. Helping to normalize your oil secretions and reducing impurities, getting a regular hair spa is a must so that it restores your hair moisture, oils, stimulates blood circulation and repairs the damaged hair to give you a healthier, smoother, and shiner hair than ever before.

4. DON’T Experiment 

Love experimenting with your hair? While, we recommend to explore different hair cut and hair color options but playing with your hair before your wedding day can definitely be a risky thing. Hair Tip: Plan your hairstyle or hair color a few months before your wedding and get an idea as to what kind of look you would want for your D-day.
