Getting married soon and your skin still feels like sandpaper - all flaky and dry and you can't understand why it still feels this way considering its summers? Isn't dry skin supposed to be an issue only in extremely cold weather? Ummm, contrary to popular (mis)belief, dry and flaky skin is a year-long phenomenon. It has less to do with the weather, and more to do with your skin type. If you naturally have dry or combination skin, it'll be the same throughout the year. But if you're going to be a bride soon, then you need to take care of your skin to make it look soft, supple and glowy on your big day.
Well, fret not because I have this amazing list of 7 super effective, heavy-duty moisturizers that will give your skin all the love and hydration it needs. Check 'em out!
