You may be months or weeks away from the big day, but it’s never too late to start taking care of your skin for some before heading down the isle. Here are 5 skin care tips for the groom to-be to take care and prep their skin for the day they tie the knot.
- Know Your Skin
Before you can even get down to taking care of your skin, you need to know what is your skin? What kind of skin do you have, matters a lot when you’re opting for any skin care products or treatments. To know your skin type, pay a visit to a dermatologist, who will be able to give you a detailed analysis of your skin type and may also be able to help you out with your skin care tips.
To find out at home whether you have an oily, dry or normal skin, just dab a tissue paper on your face, first thing in the morning. If you see that the tissue paper has absorbed oil, that means you have an oily skin. If it hasn’t absorbed any oil, then you have a dry skin. If you have a combination of both, then you only have an oily T- zone.
- Skin Care Regime
Once you’ve identified your skin type, start a regular skin care regime with cleansing, toning and moisturizing being the major components of it. You should wash your face at least twice a day. If you have an oily skin, make sure you don’t use products that are highly moisturizing because this might just clog your pores further.
For an oily skin, use an astringent at least thrice a week. For a dry skin, use a good quality moisturizer which will keep your skin well moisturized and healthy.
If you are exposed to the sun a lot, then make sure that you use a high SPF sunscreen. Also, whenever you step outdoors in the sun, make sure you’ve got your sunscreen on.
