As Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal launches Nivea Men, an exclusive range of products for men, UrbanEye’s very own #GroomingGuru gets talking with the star and gets him to share his grooming rituals with our readers. It’s always so exciting to hear how the celebrities maintain their skin and hair once their make-up is off and once the studio lights are turned off. Here’s what Arjun Rampal has to say.
In one line, could you discuss your daily grooming ritual for your skin?
That’s easy. I use NIVEA All-In-One face wash followed by a cleanser and then a moisturizer. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated even after a long day at work.
For all the stylish, well-groomed gentlemen out there, give us the ‘Arjun Rampal’ secret to great-looking skin.
The secret is to drink lots and lots of water. But that’s not enough. You need to indulge in daily cleansing with a good face wash and then top it all with a light moisturizer.
Your job requires you to use a lot of make-up? How do you take care of your skin after a long day in the sun, slathered with make-up?
For me it is very important to maintain healthy skin. Eating healthy food, getting enough sleep and keeping my body oxygenated keeps my skin looking and feeling great.
What is your pre and post shaving ritual?
I begin my facing ritual by washing my face with luke warm water. Then I apply Nivea Men Extra Moisturizing shaving foam. I use a straight razor to shave and once I am done, I apply Nivea Men Sensitive After Shave lotion. It gives a very soothing effect. It also takes care of any irritation or burning, which is inevitable after a shave.
Talk us through your regular hair care regime. Do you stick to one brand of shampoo or do you often change?
I wash my hair every alternate day and my shampoo changes as I like to experiment with new products. To me, what’s most important is a great conditioner.
Do you recommend any particular product or treatment?
Something as simple as the age-old practice of oiling your hair once a week is the best hair treatment.
One secret to great looking hair?
A good hairstylist.
Three grooming MUST HAVES for every man.
Your advice to Indian men on why they should be impeccably groomed…
Your skin is your largest organ so please take care of it. I understand the importance of grooming and think it’s an essential part of everyone’s life. Not only because I am an actor do I believe in grooming but as an individual, I feel everyone should be well-groomed. I feel everyone should be proud of their skin and take utmost care of it.
Many people think that men who are well groomed and look after their skin and hair are ‘feminine’ or not ‘manly enough’ what do you have to say to this?
If you like your women well groomed then just return the effort.
