How To Prepare Your Face For A Date

Get date ready with The London Grooming Company


What is the old saying? 'Fail to prepare; prepare to fail?' It's as true with dating as it is with anything else in life. Ensure you are entering the dating sphere with all the attributes to succeed. Go into a date well-prepared with a well-thought-out outfit, sunny disposition, and a little self-confidence. In contrast if you head in with a lackadaisical pre-match game, you can only blame yourself when she uses her pre-planned 'Emergen­cy call.' And you can't be annoyed because that's just effective preparation.


One area many gents seem to fall at the first hurdle is with a simple predate grooming routine. One that ensures they're feeling and looking fresh-faced and ready to flirt. Dates are difficult especially with the pressures of mo­dern-day society (venue, drink, who pays, etc). The best thing you can do is control the controllable. Ensure you're the best version of yourself when she casts her eyes upon you. Let's talk about what you can do before a date to ensure you've got your game face on.


Refresh Your Skin 


It may be unknown to many of you, but your skin takes a beating every day. It is crucial that you look after it and keep it refreshed, especially before a date. So, let's start with the basics. Firstly, reach for The London Grooming Company Face Wash. Enriched with organic Aloe Vera to help cleanse the skin and leave you feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Step one, complete. A Charcoal Face Mask the night before is also a bri­lliant way of re-invigorating your skin. The mask will offer your pores a natural detox and draw out the impurities from your face. We recommend gently massaging into cleansed skin and after 10-15 minutes rinsing off with warm water. For best results, incorporate our mask into your skincare routine, using it once a week. 




Let's face it... dry skin isn't attractive on anyone. It's an unfortunate area where many blokes fall short due to their face simply not receiving enough moisture. The last thing you want to be doing on a date is shedding skin. Why not try our Hydrating Facial Cream? Its lightweight formula locks in the skin's natural moisture while protecting and nourishing. Combined with the Oud Wood fragrance, it's the perfect date night preparation. Not only for before a date, our Hydrating Facial Cream can be used daily.


Signature Scent 


It's a well-known fact that three common areas people are judged on are their shoes, teeth, and scent. The first step to a strong scent is to wash. Try to wash as close to the date as possible so that you feel revitalised and ready to go. This may sound obvious but trust us when we say that it isn't obvious for many chaps. Thinking about cologne, Signature is a fantastic option. It's a subtle and long-lasting scent which remains active and fragrant for the long haul (we hope like your date). Allowing your presence to make an impact that lasts and lasts.


And there you have it. The London Grooming Company's guide on getting your skin date night ready.
