If your December is full of party after party, you need to make sure you’re looking your best. This can easily be done with a few simple grooming tips and tricks. Don’t worry, it won’t add on a lot of extra time to your regular routine – it will have you looking like a million bucks; it’s your time to shine: -)
Removing unwanted facial hair
For the most groomed appearance, it’s important to have your hair under control. We’re not just talking about the obvious hair on your head and upper lip, we mean ears, nose, and eyebrows. If you aren’t doing regular trimming, these areas can fastly become a trouble zone. You can easily trim, tweeze, wax or shave these areas. This step will make sure you’re getting the right kind of attention at the party.
Maintaining your nails is an important step towards a completely groomed appearance. Nothing is quite as off-putting as seeing dirt under someone’s nails. To avoid this, make sure you’re trimming back any excess nail and cleaning any debris underneath. If you wanted to take it one step above that you could buff your nails to a shine and apply some cuticle oil. Walking into a nice salon every once in a while is a good way to relax – while getting groomed.
- Truefitt & Hill India: Men’s Barber Shop and Luxury Grooming
“I went to the Truefitt & Hill in Bangalore (Indiranagar) just before my wedding, and it was one of the best – in terms of the grooming services they provide and the whole experience. I spent a good 3 hours there that day, and got my haircut and shave done – along with a facial and manicure. It felt so relaxing and the service was top class!
The experience was so good, that I actually bought their Classic Membership which cost me around ₹ 51,000. It may seem a little costly, but I did my math and convinced myself that it’s totally worth it, since the membership entitles me to unlimited services for one whole year. Trust me, their service and experience is unmatched. Moreover, it’s as good as going for a weekend relaxation trip, which anyways would cost the same or more.
I am really looking forward to spending some quality time – and also explore a whole range of their luxury grooming services, which I otherwise wouldn’t have ever thought of (I am a pretty low maintenance guy) ” ~ Abhishek, Finance Professional
Moisturize your body
Please note that using a moisturizer on your face and body is not an indulgence – but a necessity just like taking your daily shower. Take the time to layer with your favorite moisturizer. Body oils with natural scents are pretty good, especially for the winters.
Finish it off with a fragrance
Apply your favorite fragrance to finish off the look. While this may be an obvious one, it’s definitely something you don’t want to forget. You’re going to be reaching in for hugs and pictures throughout the night so you want to make sure you’re smelling your best. Fragrance is the easiest way to feel like you’re on your A-game. If perfumes are not your thing, Eau De Toilettes works pretty well, and there are some amazing ones from Zara.
