Beauty Writer & Editorial Coordinator
So, you’re getting married in a few days, maybe a few weeks and like every bride, you too want glowing and clear skin. It’s every bride’s dream to have that lit-from-within glow on her wedding day and with the help of a few morning beauty habits you’ll be able to achieve that. As a bride-to-be, you should have a beauty routine so that on the day of your wedding, you look as stunning as ever.
1. Drink lukewarm water
The first thing you must do in the morning after you get up is drink a glass of lukewarm water. Doing this will help in losing the last few kilos as it helps with weight loss. Apart from this, it also helps in improving your blood circulation as it flushes out the toxins from your body.
2. Ice it up, baby
Rubbing a few ice cubes on your face will help in increasing the blood circulation around that area and you’ll have that natural ‘lit-from-within’ glow. Ice also helps in decreasing the puffiness or any kind of swelling on your face.
3. Eat superfoods
For glowing and radiant skin on your wedding day, it’s essential for you to follow a certain diet. To reduce the chances of breaking out close to your wedding and for that gorgeous shiny skin, you should include foods like apple, carrots, beetroot, etc. in your diet. Consuming these superfoods will help you calm your skin and give it a beautiful glow.
Eyes are the window to your soul, and so, taking care of your eyes is important. Stress often leads to lack of sleep and it’s extremely important that you give your eyes some TLC. What you can do is, keep your day eye cream in the fridge and then apply under your eyes. Another way to de-puff your eyes is by refrigerating two used tea bags and keeping them on your eyes for a while.
5. Get moving
Wedding preparations can make you a bit stressed out and working out is a great way to relax and de-stress. Join a yoga class, go for a run or sweat it out in a gym - the kind of workout you choose is completely up to you. Sweating helps your body in getting rid of toxins and exercising releases endorphins that make you feel happy and positive.
6. Pamper your skin
You’re going to get married in a few days and what better time to pamper your skin for a while? Apply any of these amazing face packs to hide that pre-wedding stress or go for a homemade face pack that you absolutely love. These face packs will rejuvenate your skin and you’ll feel oh-so-pretty.
7. Use skin specific moisturizer
Moisturizing is extremely important for soft and supple skin. Always moisturize after taking a bath, whether hot or cold. Also, don’t wait for your body to dry completely before you moisturize. Always make it a point to moisturize when your skin is still a bit wet so that your body locks in the moisture and it lasts all day long.
8. Drink green tea
Green tea is an antioxidant-rich powerhouse that has numerous health benefits. It contains Vitamin C which boosts blood circulation and gives your skin that vibrant glow. If you’re trying to calm your acne prone skin before the wedding, consuming green tea will definitely be of big help.
9. Sunscreen is a must
Never ever slack on sunscreen as it’s extremely important for you to not get unnecessary pigmentation or tan. It will protect you from harmful rays of the sun while you do last-minute wedding shopping.
10. Massage your face
Massaging your face every morning will improve and increase blood circulation. Massaging your skin is a great beauty habit to follow and it will make you feel extremely relaxed. Take any oil that suits your skin type and massage your stress away.
