Wedding day is considered as an important life event by many. Many millennials, who are wedding now, do not want to compromise on any aspect, and having a healthy skin is one of them. No bride-to-be wants dull complexion, discolouration of skin, dark circles around eyes or acnes on her face on the special day. No matter what makeup you put, there is no alternative to healthy looking skin. However, with so much of physical and mental stress put behind having a near perfect wedding, there are high chances of having a break-out or undereye darkness. So we present to you some easy-to-follow tips, so that you can have healthy glowing skin for your wedding without much ado.
#1 Plan a Smart Skin Care Routine Early
You need to start an effective skin care routine early to get your skin look the best. Planning and execution of a smart skin care routine should be done 9 to 12 months before the wedding. On an average, it takes about 6 sessions spread across 6 weeks to see the best results. Do not panic if your wedding was finalized at a short notice. Adopt good skin care habits as soon as possible to have glowing skin
#2 Eat and Sleep Healthy
Your skin always needs to breathe fresh regardless of your skin type. Drinking plenty of water and having fruits like watermelon keeps your skin hydrated naturally. Have a peaceful sleep every night for a glowing skin.
#3 Book Monthly Facial Appointments
Who doesn’t love pampering, and your skin is no different. With countless treatments available in parlours, book yourself monthly facial slots in order to have a perfect glow on your special day. Brides-to-be might be worried about the occurrence of acne and skin tan due to pollution and outings happening. Deep-cleaning facials once a month become a boon during such conditions.
#4 Moisturize Regularly
Moisturizers play a vital role in any skin care regime; they prevent the skin from drying and looking flaky. Brides-to-be must apply moisturizer twice every day – in the morning and before going to bed. Select a moisturizer based on your skin type and make sure that you apply it generously, especially on areas that have extremely dry skin like hands, elbows, feet, and knees.
#5 Apply the Right Face Pack
Any skin care routine is incomplete without applying face packs. Though there are numerous products available in the market, homemade face packs with natural ingredients are pocket friendly and chemical free options. Using these packs regularly, along with your other beauty routines can render a long term healthy effect to your skin.
Pack for Dry Skin
Milk powder – 1 tablespoon
Mesmara Lemon Essential Oil – Few drops
Make a paste and apply on the face and then wash off after 20 minutes. The milk powder and lemon have agents that help keep the skin hydrated.
Pack For Oily Skin
Mesmara Aloe Vera Powder – 1 tablespoon
Turmeric – A pinch
Mix both the ingredients together with water. Apply it on your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Then, rinse it off in normal water and pat dry.
Pack for Normal Skin
Besan – 2 tablespoon
Curd – 1 tablespoon
Honey – 1 teaspoon
Turmeric – A pinch
Make a paste and apply it on your face. Leave it on for 5 minutes before you wash it off with cold water. Repeat this regime regularly for a glowing skin.
#6 Stop Being a Guinea Pig
Excited about a new product launched in the market? Wait for a couple of months after your wedding to test it. Don’t try any new products for skin care, hair care, and make-up up to three weeks before your wedding. Any kind of a reaction, after using new products always takes a couple of weeks to go off. You definitely do not want to walk the aisle with some skin irritation.
These simple yet highly effective tips can be followed not only before the wedding, but also after wedding regularly. Do leave your tips in the comments section below that you have or would follow for a glowing skin for your wedding day.
