Everybody wants beautiful glowing skin, even more so when they’re about to get married! After all, the bride must glow above everyone else! To help you achieve this gorgeous glow, we’ve compiled for you a list of skin treatments that you could consider getting before your wedding. But keep in mind, these treatments must be done only after proper consultation with your dermatologist!
1. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are often used for the face. They even out the skin tone, remove pigmentation and improve the texture of the skin. Chemical peels can be mild, medium or deep, depending upon the look you’re after. For the best bridal glow, make sure you get them done well in advance because the skin tends to display redness after the procedure. You will have to avoid the sun after getting the peels, and may even have to wear bandages for some time, so make sure you get a peel after proper consultation with your dermatologist.
2. Deep Cleansing Facials
If you don’t want to go in for chemical peels but still want beautifully glowing skin, a deep cleansing facial is for you! This facial is more intensive than regular facials and will open up your pores, unclog them, take care of your whiteheads and blackheads and give your skin a smoother texture. Sounds like something every bride should go for, doesn’t it?
3. Salt Scrub
A salt scrub is something that has to be done for your entire body, not just your face. This scrub is usually made of sea salt, sweet almond oil and an essential oil like lavender or lemon. This abrasive mixture removes dead skin from your body, leaving it smooth and soft. A must-do before the honeymoon, isn’t it? *winks*
This is basically an advanced exfoliation treatment wherein small crystals are used to remove the outer layer of your skin. While this is not very effective for scar removal, it works well to brighten your skin up before your wedding. Microdermabrasion helps make your skin look younger and more glowing. Only go to certified dermatology clinics for this treatment and not to a salon, however much you trust them.
Dermabrasion is a treatment that should be done only if you have scars and marks that you want to get rid of before your big day. It is more aggressive than microdermabrasion, which means that you’ll be given meds to relax and numb your skin. Remember, both these treatments should be done only after proper consultation with a professional!
6. Laser Hair Removal
Want to be smooth and hair free on your wedding night, through the honeymoon and basically for as long as possible? Well, one treatment that you can consider is laser hair removal. While you’ll have to start at least six months in advance if you want to see improvement before your big day, laser hair removal is a good way of not worrying about waxing and shaving while on your honeymoon! But go for this ONLY if you have excessive hair growth and, as always, after proper consultation with your dermatologist!
7. A Massage!
Take a break from hectic wedding planning and gift yourself a massage! Nothing is more relaxing than a hot oil massage after a long day, so go ahead and book yourself a spa treatment! Ask your masseuse to use a skin brightening oil for glowing skin. You’ll love it!
