Every girl wants to look her best on the wedding day. From gorgeous outfits to stunning jewellery, gym memberships to dietician appointments, we go to great lengths for this special day of our lives. And not to forget the luxurious pre bridal salon packages that are a blessing amidst those hectic wedding planning months. Here are a few things to include in your pre-bridal beauty regime package that starts at least 4-6 months before the D-day.
1. The all-important facials
As a bride-to-be, you must get a facial done at least once a month. Look for the variety of facials that the salon offers, and if they have specific facials and products based on your skin type. Facials help clear up your skin, improve blood circulation and thus give you a happy, healthy and glowing skin. Your last facial appointment should be 4-5 days before the wedding festivities begin.
2. Body scrubs and polish
The harsh sun and pollution can be blamed for turning our soft skin rough, but regular scrubbing sure does help. Make sure body scrubs and body polishes are included in your pre-bridal package. It helps remove dead skin cells, dirt from the pores and also removes tan. For young and soft skin, this is a must, especially for places where you can’t usually reach, like your back.
3. The all essential waxing
This is sure to come in your package but ditch the traditional wax for chocolate or Rica that are not as harsh on the skin. Chocolate and Rica wax help eliminate tan and also remove the tiniest of hair. It’s even better if you have sensitive skin and are worried about red rashes. Most bridal packages come with bikini wax but it’s best to be sure whether it’s included in the package or not.
4. A body pack
A body pack or body bleach is a must for the girl who is getting married. It helps even out skin tone and adds a nice sheen to your body. Opt for a oxy bleach for the face for an added glow and a milk bleach for the body. It nourishes your skin and the effects sure do show under those bright lights on the wedding stage.
5. Manicure and pedicure
This goes without saying! Your hands and feet must always be well-groomed and a mani and pedi every 15 days is a must. Don’t expect the beautician to work his/her magic in just one or two sittings. Regular grooming of the nails is essential and pedicures are a great stress buster too! It’ll help you relax and pretty up your hands and feet that are going to be in focus in your shaadi pictures a lot.
6. Hair spa
Shiny, strong and healthy hair is every girl's dream. And this is the right time to invest in regular hair spas. Consult the hair stylist for hair treatments to tackle specific hair problems and make sure that your package includes the required number of sessions.
7. A relaxing massage
Being a bride-to-be really does take a toll on you. You are physically and mentally stressed out and it sure does start showing if you don’t take proper care. What better than weekly relaxing massages to help keep you calm and prevent that stress from showing on your face. Massages help you soothe your mind and soul, and relax your body and muscles. The essential oils used during Ayurvedic massages are a great stress-buster and leave your body feeling healthy and light.
