Diwali is just around the corner, and with your busy schedule, you probably haven’t given a second thought to how you can be well-turned out for all the social engagements that have been lined up for you. Relax. We have got you covered. Read through our grooming tips to find out how you can look your best and enjoy the festivities to the fullest!
Clothes Make The Man
Your attire is the first thing that will be noticed when you walk in. While there are multiple options for men to choose from today, what you need to keep in mind is what works for you. A simple, sophisticated kurta, bandhgala or a Nehru jacket are some classics that never go out of style. If you want to experiment, you can try out something like dhoti pants while keeping the rest of the outfit simpler. Either way, make sure that it fits you properly, is well-made and comfortable to move in.
Add a statement watch, a pair of juttis, or formal shoes if you are going for a more fusion edge, and you are all set to make heads turn.
The Hair Affair
You might have your outfit on point, but if your hair or beard is unkempt, it all goes out of the window.
Give your hair and facial hair the attention they deserve. Trim and style your beard and invest in a beard-grooming regime which includes cleansing, moisturizing and styling it regularly. If you’re going for a clean-shaven look, do invest time in applying a pre-shave oil to soften the mane, and follow up with a post-shave lotion to moisturize and protect the skin.
On d-day, use a hair pomade that will keep you looking sharp and slick with its ultra strong hold that lasts through the night.
Gift Like A Gentleman
A true gentleman knows that the only sin greater than going empty-handed is gifting those same old, generic boxes of sweets that just sit in the fridge for ages or end up being passed on. Be considerate towards your hosts and bring something thoughtful that they would actually value and use. A good idea is a curated grooming gift-box. After all, a gentleman helps his friends on their gentleman journey.
Spritz On The Charm
A minute detail that adds a personal touch to your outlook is the fragrance that you choose to put on. For evenings, a seductive and elegant scent with woody notes is ideal. Pick a long-lasting option such as the Noir EDT that is masculine and strong yet subtle with refreshing top notes.
Keep Your Skin Camera-Ready
Whenever you meet your friends and family, pictures are bound to be clicked, more so during festivals when everybody wants to flaunt their latest outfits. That’s why you need to keep your skin looking fresh and well-nourished. Start a face cleaning ritual now if you haven’t already- wash, scrub, and MOISTURISE! We also recommend a good peel-off mask to get rid of any blackheads, dirt and impurities that those 16 MP cameras are sure to spot.
Always remember to use a peel-off mask a day prior to any event and not on the day of the event itself, as that would open up your pores and may make your skin look red and patchy.
Get The Basics In Place: Sleep, Hydrate and Eat Right
Well, you already know this, but this is a tip so important that we had to mention it again. Sleeping for 7-8 hours and having 2 liters of water every day is a big must.
Diwali is infamous for being the festival of consuming an excess of delicious food and sweets, and while you should definitely allow yourself to indulge, limiting the portions is a good way to keep a tab on the amount of unhealthy calories you are consuming.
So start today, and get ready to be on top of your grooming game for this festive season!
