We know you’re super excited about entering Matrimony. There are going to be endless parties, insistent cousins and friends coaxing you to indulge a bit more and a lot of pressure to look superb on your wedding day. But the trick is to not let all these factors get to you and play it safe in the days leading up to your wedding.
Booze and caffeine
Prospective grooms do tend to overindulge when it comes to drinks. We know you’re over the moon that you’re getting married. However, the celebration does not mean that you guzzle alcohol every day. Not only will it add to body fat, it will also leave your face swollen and puffy. Add to that the other after effects like poor digestion and hangover, and you have more against getting drunk to celebrate than for it. While we’re at it, also cut down on excess tea and coffee which can leave you dehydrated and disturb your sleep cycle. So steer clear of alcohol and caffeine and focus on a fibre-rich, nutritious diet that will help you tide over one of the most stressful periods of your life.
Don’t start a strenuous workout regime just a few days before your wedding in pursuit of a chiseled body. Chances are you might just end up with a pulled hamstring or muscle cramp. On your wedding day and the distress will do little to up your self-esteem. Instead, take out time to go for long walks or a run every other day. This will keep you feeling fresh and relax your body and mind.
Skimping on water
Make sure that you drink at least 10 glasses of water every day. Water improves the digestive system and helps remove under eye dark circles giving you a general look of well-being. Many a groom has been known to develop acne or pimples on their wedding day. Drinking water regularly can keep acne at bay and save you from wedding day blues.
Exposure to direct sunlight
Unevenly sun-tanned skin can be quite an embarrassment, especially on your wedding day. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight and use homemade remedies like turmeric, yogurt, and honey to nourish your skin. We know it sounds girly but men need to take care of their looks too.
Even though the occasion demands it, avoid overeating. As much as possible, eat a balanced nutritious diet that will refresh you more rather than make you feel stuffy. Keep away from fried, oily food items as much as extremely sweet or salty items.
Losing out on sleep
Avoid late nights of partying or overwork. It is very important to have a good night’s rest in the days before your wedding. Some prospective grooms, in a bid to make up for their upcoming wedding leave from work, tend to put in extra hours and end up ruining their mood and health on their wedding day. Steer clear of overexerting yourself.
