No amount of makeup can ever equal naturally glowing skin, right? That flawless gorgeous glow… Who doesn’t want it?! We surely do! Especially when the wedding season is here and we’re all going to be bridesmaids real soon. We wonder how much more important it must be for the bride-to-be to indulge in some extra skincare before the wedding. So we found these 10 easy-peasy bridal skincare tips to pamper your skin during the time that leads up to the wedding!
1. No New Products, Please!
We know how tempting it is to try that newly launched facewash that promises to make your skin instantly plump and supple from the first try itself, but curb the temptation. Avoid trying new products during those few weeks before your wedding because you don’t know how your skin would react to it! Stick to the good old ‘tried and tested’ stuff, ladies.
2. Hello, Green Tea
Not everyone likes the taste of green tea, but consuming it on a daily basis can work wonders for your skin as it is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. And oh, did we mention that it helps in losing weight too? Make it a habit to gulp down a glass of green tea every day and we promise you’re going to get gorgeous skin in just a few weeks. But remember not to overdo it, you shouldn’t be having more than 1 to 2 cups a day.
3. Break Away From Stress
When there are just a couple of weeks left for your wedding, you’re bound to feel a stressed out and anxious, it’s normal! But do not let stress overpower you because apart from giving you a headache, it might mess with your skin as well. Indulge in massages, listen to music, dance around - anything that helps you unwind and stay calm. Stay happy, stay pretty!
4. Superfoods For Super Skin
Hydration is the key and you might have heard it zillions of times, right? So apart from drinking a lot of water every day, go get some food items - watermelon, berries, oranges, cucumber, almonds, etc. - that have a high water content and natural oils that are exceptionally good for your skin.
5. Personal Hygiene Be Proper
It’s important to keep up your personal hygiene because it really affects your skin as well as your overall well-being. Be it your nails or your hair or your makeup brushes for that matter - make it a point to keep everything neat and clean. Trust us, your skin will thank you for it!
6. Sweat It Out
Regular workouts can work like charm as they help your skin get rid of toxins and impurities. Apart from keeping your body toned it also helps you get a naturally rosy complexion. So start sweating it out - no, you don’t necessarily need to hit the gym, even a jog or a power walk for half an hour every day can work wonders.
7. Skin Supplements
Skin supplements can also be taken to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. However, you need to consult a skin specialist before taking any such supplements. The main purpose of these supplements is to make up for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies in the body.
8. Rely On Home Remedies
Know your skin type and make full use of magical ingredients like lemon, honey, milk, turmeric powder etc. and pamper your skin some more. The best thing about home remedies is that, if done right, there are no side effects.
9. Follow The CTM Rule
Never heard about the CTM rule? It’s the basic cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine that really helps in getting a clean and clear skin. Invest in a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer and before going to bed, make sure to do this three step ritual to keep your skin in its best form.
10. Dear Dermatologist
Whether you have a skin issue or not - consult a dermatologist to get professional guidance to take care of your skin before your wedding. If you have an existing skin issue - you’ll get a solution to treat it the right way. And if your skin is already fine - you can get suggestions to make it even better! Either way, it’s a win-win situation!
