There's no denying that every girl wants to look her stunning best at her wedding. Fresh and glowing skin, however, is so much more than makeup. It takes months of effort and planning to get that bridal glow on your D-day. So, if you're stuck in quarantine (just like the rest of us) and want to start with a detox ritual in the meanwhile, we've got all the knows and hows.
From what to eat to how to cut down on bloating, here are some tips and tricks to make the most of your quarantined time.
Drinking water infused with some essentials from your kitchen can help give you clearer skin and increase your metabolism. If your stomach often feels bloated, it helps with that too. So keep this water in a bottle next to you and sip on it through the day. A trusty recipe is lemon, cucumber, mint, and water and you can even add ginger in there for the extra boost.
Probably the most commonly known hack is to not indulge in junk food as it increases bloating without adding much nutritional value. Say no to chocolates, chips and fried snacks and instead snack on healthier options like nuts and dry fruits.
We know that caffeine is highly addictive and those of you who are used to drinking it can feel tired and lifeless without it but breaking the habit is important. Have green tea instead. Drinking green tea after fifteen minutes of every meal is a great idea. It is packed with anti-oxidants.
Complete alcohol cleanse is essential when you're looking at detoxing for your wedding because it adds unnecessary calories to the mix. It also makes to your skin appear dull and can tamper with your digestion as well.
Filling your stomach with loads of green vegetables is another great way to go because they're packed with nutritious value. You can even blend them up in a celery or spinach juice and have that instead. Try having the veggies raw or with the tiniest bit of oil so that you can make the most of the skin brightening properties in the food.
Vitamin E and C are natural antioxidants that basically boost collagen production which in turn prevents wrinkles and skin damage. These can be found in almonds, sunflower seeds, green leafy veggies, citrus fruits, kiwi and red peppers.
Fatty acids will keep your skin from becoming dry and also fight redness and inflammation. These can typically be found in salmon, nuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil. So if you have these lying around at home, whipping up a baked dish is a great way to go.
We know this time can be hard and can seem endless but making the most of it and finding a silver lining is how you'll be able to get through it.
