Wedding is an important ritual and tradition in Hindu mythology. It is an event which is celebrated with pomp and show. The limelight of this tradition is the Bride and Bridegroom. Therefore, they both have to look their best.
So, there are 10 skin care tips for groom to be followed in order to have a healthy skin on the day of wedding.
1. Drink a lot of water
The first step to keep the skin healthy is to drink a lot of water. Dehydration is the enemy of a healthy skin. The more you keep your body hydrated, the more radiant the skin becomes. Water removes toxic compounds from the body thereby, cleansing it. Moreover, water aids in digestion, circulation and excretion thus supporting a healthy lifestyle. It is an alternative for the anti-ageing components. As the water evaporates from the surface of the skin, it becomes cooler and thereby eliminating the extra oil and redness (if any).
2. Identify your skin type.
Apart from drinking water, you should identify your skin type. There are various types of skin. You should determine the skin type. Is it too oily? Is it prone to acne? Is it rough and dry? Is it normal? Is it a combination of both? By observing the behaviour of your skin when you wake up and sleep, you can easily answer this question. Once you have determined your skin type, then, you can work on your skin according to that because every skin type requires a different set of skin care techniques.
3. Exercise frequently, sweat more
Skin is made up of delicate skin tissues. Running, exercising and sweating more will help the skin to rebuild and thus, it will remove dead cells from the skin making it more radiant and glowing. Exercise helps in proper breathing and the supply of adequate oxygen to every part of the body including skin.
4. Daily Cleansing
Cleansing of skin is as important as any other thing. Opt for an ayurvedic, an allopathic or a homemade cleanser and use it two times a day and just after sweating a lot. Warm water with rose water is the best homemade cleanser. Moreover, there are many cleansing products available at the cosmetic shop. Buy them after identifying your skin type. Cleansing will help in removing dead cells from the skin and the formation of rejuvenated radiant skin cells.
5. Have a Proper Sleep

This indicates you have an oily skin and an oily skin is prone to acne. Moreover, sleep helps to repair the dead skin cells and a proper sleep will aid you to prevent the dark circles and dark spots too. 8 hour proper sleep will add to the radiance of the skin.
