When you think about the festive season, it’s easy to focus on female beauty, but a growing number of men are devoting time to looking good too. With the holidays upon us, it’s a time of year when we should all look and feel fabulous. If you love to pamper yourself or your other half is embracing the male grooming trend, here are some top tips.
Seasonal beauty tips
If you want to look your best for the holidays, it’s time to wise up on seasonal beauty tips. The changing weather conditions can wreak havoc on your skin, so take steps to protect your skin and try and make sure you get enough sleep. At this time of year, many people have parties to attend, and this can affect their sleep routine. If you’re not getting enough rest, your skin will soon start to show the tell-tale signs of sleepless nights. Before you get into bed, make sure you cleanse your face, remove makeup and apply moisturizer or hydrating serum. It’s also a good idea to ensure that you drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and to exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells.
If you’re dressing up for parties or you’re looking forward to spending time with friends and family, you can be a little bolder with your makeup looks. If you’ve got an event to attend or you’re going out for a celebratory dinner, why not switch up your color palette and go for a more audacious look with a smoky eye or a statement lip? If you prefer a more natural look, make sure your skin is well moisturized before applying your base and add a flush of color with blush or bronzer to lift your complexion.
Male grooming tips
It’s not just women that take pride in their appearance. Most men also care about how they look. The male grooming industry is booming, and there are all kinds of products and gadgets on offer. If you’re looking for gift inspiration or you’re trying to get your other half into grooming, take a look at sites like Manly Matters, read some reviews and see what kind of products are on the market. Skincare is really important, especially if you’re braving wintry conditions in colder countries and it’s also important to take good care of the hair and facial hair. If you delve deeper into the market, you’ll find everything from nose trimmers and electric shavers to beard oil and masculine moisturizers.
