Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Grooming your Groom!

 Babydoll Weddings stylist Charly has some words of wisdom for us this week:

When it comes to weddings, people tend to focus solely on the bride in when prepping and pampering. But don’t forget your groom, he will love the extra attention to make him feel his absolute best on the best day ever! 

  1. Use a long lasting body wash that has a fresh scent. It will not be too over powering like cologne sometimes is and will leave him smelling divine.
  2. For freshly trimmed nails, have him cut his nails while in the shower or right after he gets out. The moisture will soften the nail, making it easier to clip and eliminates the need for him to file the nail afterwards.
  3. Your groom can enhance his facial features by grooming his eyebrows with techniques such as waxing or tweezing (once a month is more than enough).
  4. For a smoother shave, have him use a hot towel before shaving and having him leave his shaving gel on for a few minutes longer. This will result in his hair softening and making it easier to shave. It will also add moisture to his skin. Splurge on a luxurious after shave to cool the skin after shaving.

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Supple Skin in the Dead of Winter

Is your skin dry during winter? Try these tips from Babydoll Weddings stylist Charly to soften and moisturize your skin in these cold temps!

1) Rough and extra-dry skin often occurs typically on the upper arms. Use a lotion with a salicylic acid that exfoliates dead skin which will noticeably reduce appearance of bumps.

2) Rather than repeatedly washing hands with soap and water which dries out skin faster which results in chapping and patched hands. Welcome wipe-off soap free cleansers and/or hand sanitizers alcohol free but when washing hands utilize a moisturizing soap free cleansers or hydrating anti-bacterial gel. Don’t forget to lather a generous amount of lotion on after washing hands.

3) Wearing cotton gloves over creamed/ lotioned hands for an hour can soften skin. It acts as a barrier by trapping moisture.

4) By adding honey to your scrub will reduce inflammation and sugar increases circulation, apply this to stubborn dry patches on elbows and knees. Helpful during winter season when skin is deprived of moisture.

5) To moisture your skin, try 12%lactic acid lotion apply on arms and/or legs. If your skin looks scally we recommend taking a milk bath this does not only drastically moisturizes but exfoliates the skin resulting in smoother skin.

6) Before bedtime gently buff calluses with a pumice stone or hydrating scrub after buffing apply a thick buttery moisturizer while feet are damp. Wear socks overnight. Resulting in smoother and softer feet.

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Hair Care!

Babydoll Weddings stylist Charly has some tips for us on how to keep your hair in perfectly manageable condition this holiday season:

  • Give your hair a burst of cold. Before you get out of the shower, turn on the cold water on for a second quickly rinse it through your strands. This helps seal the cuticle, adding a sleek finish to your locks.

  • Boost your volume with a beer and egg mask! To add body to limp or flat hair, this is a great remedy. Mix 1/2 cup flat beer 1 teaspoon oil and 1 egg. massage into your hair and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water.
  • Make sure to get regular trims to keep hair healthy and help the hair grew out evenly. Depending on the thickness of hair you should try to visit your hairdresser every 6 to 8 weeks.

We here at Babydoll Weddings wish you a very Merry Christmas with your families!
