Wedding Day - Groom
Getting married this summer? Here's our Lifestyle & Grooming Editor Lee's pick of this year's wedding day essentials.
With nerves jangling, skin puffy from a lack of sleep and your morning schedule in chaos, nobody’s going to blame you if your wedding day shave isn’t quite as precise as usual. Thankfully, if you do end up with any minor nicks, though, this astringent gel will sort you out. An easy-to-apply alternative to a styptic pencil (or a face covered in bits of toilet paper) it’s great at stopping bleeding and closing cuts.
One of the unexpected dangers of a summer wedding is sunburn. It can take a matter of minutes to burn on a bright, sunny day and chances are you’ll be spending half-an-hour posing for photos outside so make sure you protect skin with this premium moisturiser which includes a built-in sunscreen.
Specially formulated for men’s skin this high-performance tinted moisturiser not only uses light-reflecting particles to even out skin tone (hiding a multitude of sins in the process), it also mattifies and provides some natural-looking colour, ensuring you’re always ready for the photographer. Think of it as Photoshop for your face.
On your big day you’ll want to smell good but won’t want to leave guests reeling in the aisles. Since warm weather intensifies the effects of fragrance this means it’s wise to opt for a light, fresh fragrance that’s memorable but not overpowering. A unique blend of classic and unusual elements creates a distinctive, and powerful woody scent.
