Weddings are special for a reason. A moment to cherish for a lifetime, this day is implied irreplaceable. Brides start prepping for the day way in advance by selecting the perfect wedding attire and make sure everything is perfect for the special day. Skin care and beauty routine are essential too, to keep the bridal glow on point for all the pictures and for the special moment itself. So here are some of the most important points to keep in mind. Let’s start with the most important one.
The most important and basic tip of all, get enough sleep. No amount of makeup or beauty products can cover up fatigue. With a lot of stress and pressure around the time of the wedding, your beauty sleep is the most important tip to attain a flawless skin tone. It also helps minimize dark circles and uneven pigmentation.
Hydrate Your Skin and Your Body
Remind yourself to drink loads of water and keep your skin hydrated at all times. Hydration allows the skin to retain its supple softness and helps maintain moisture evenly. So always remember to “Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise” your skin regularly. This will help give a clean and perfect base for the wedding makeup. Start at least two months before the wedding for the best results.
Exfoliation is Essential
While hydration is much-needed skin therapy for brides-to-be, exfoliation is the next best thing you can do for your skin. Removing accumulation of dirt (blackheads) and dead cells are very important. A gentle face wash or any homemade scrub that suits your skin type the best can be used. Be very careful to choose the right product. Keep away from harsh products, understand your skin type.
Spare Some Spa Time
Aside from the hustle bustle, make sure you have time to treat your skin and hair to some lush spa time. The earlier you start treating your skin and hair to nourishment, the better the results on the big day. If you prefer non-chemical treatments, there are organic spa treatments to opt too.
Pumice Stone Treatment
Give your hands and feet the attention they deserve. During mehendi, they get all the focus and it is very important to give them constant care. Use a pumice stone to scrub off any unnecessary skin cells and to keep the skin smooth. Massage them with oil/moisturizer of your choice to keep them soft and supple. Keep your nails clean and give them a fresh coat of your favorite nail color to keep them looking great on a special day!
Body and Facial Hair Removal
Make sure you have this part of the process covered! Start taking home remedies to curb hair growth long before the special date. One great tip can be Kasturi Turmeric powder. While it also helps keep the glow and smoothness of the skin intact, it is also believed to stunt hair growth.
Sweat It Out
The workout is a must. Not only will it give you the perfect fit and look you want to attain but also give your skin a natural glow, something that no treatment could get you. From gentle cardio to a couple of floor workout techniques, you are sorted.
Meditate – A LOT
With a lot of running around to do, don’t lose track of time so much that you turn out looking tired and worn out. Breathe in and breathe out!
The Right Diet
This is a crucial point to remember too. With the right workout, good exercise for the mind and the perfect balance of food, you will be all set to look the best on your special day.
Things NOT to do
Here’s a tip on things not to do to your skin, an equally crucial point to stress on. Make sure you don’t try new products on your skin. You might have a reaction to it. Keep your prepping for at least a day before your wedding day. DO NOT dismiss your beautician’s advice. If you’re advised to stay away from particular skin care routines then do stay away.
