Edward Lalrempuia: The Stylist’s Morning Routine 

It takes a little more than superior genes to look this good

Call it an occupational hazard but Fashion Consultant and Creative Director Edward Lalrempuia is arguably one of the most stylish men around, topped up by annoyingly good skin that’s perpetually glowing. Maybe it’s his North-East Indian genes or maybe it’s the fact that Lalrempuia follows a disciplined grooming routine that you might just want to emulate.  

What’s the first thing that you do when you wake up 

Edward Lalrempuia: Check my phone, unfortunately. This is usually followed by waking up my dogs for their walk. Then, I grudgingly head to make coffee. 

Your go-to grooming products?   

EL: 1. A lot of Chanel Beauty and Paula’s Choice. 

1. Oil Reducing Cleanser by Paula’s Choice as I have oily combination skin  

2. Pore Reducing Toner by Paula’s Choice  

3. Essence Water by SK 11 for glowing skin  

4. Chanel No 1 Revitalising Serum for youthful radiance 

5. Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum to retain moisture for supple skin  

6. Chanel Le Lift Cream for Anti-Aging  

7. Murad Matte Sunscreen 

Day and night scents. 

EL: I found this amazing perfume and I haven’t really used any other fragrance for a year. It’s called Another 13 by Le Labo. I’ve used it both day and night. If I had to recommend a night fragrance, then it would be Ambre Nuit by Dior or Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford. 

How do you like your coffee? 

EL: Iced with almond milk. 

What does breakfast look like? 

EL: I shift between these two exclusively depending on my mood: scrambled eggs with sourdough toast and sliced avocado with olive oil and sea salt or rolled oats with coconut sugar, almond milk and blueberries. 

What’s your workout routine like? 

EL: I have a hectic life so I can’t train as much as I would like to. But if I can manage it then three days of weight training/ HIIT and two days of gravity pilates. On a busy week, two days of weight training and a 45-min run. 

Different news portals you check out in the morning? 

EL: I don’t read news at all, but I do check out funny gossip sites like Socialitelife.com or Celebitchy.com. 

Morning Music 

EL: Depends on my mood again, but mostly soothing music. 

What are you currently reading?  

EL: Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood. It’s a damn funny memoir. I don’t like reading heavy stuff because of my hectic work life, so funny memoirs are the best. 

Three things we’ll always find on your nightstand. 

EL: My phone charger, a bottle of water and my lamp of course, also a coaster is very important (blame it on my OCD). 

Take us through your haircare routine  

EL: I don’t do much to my hair as I already had a transplant. I shampoo three times a week, oil maybe once or twice a month and use minimal hair products. 

What’s the secret to looking younger? 

EL: Avoid the sun like the plague. Sun damage is one of the biggest factors of premature ageing. Carry an umbrella out in the sun and wear sunscreen all day every day.
