Now that your wedding date has been decided and the venue has been booked, the next big thing on your to-do list is to setup a pre wedding skin care plan. You should start working on your skin care routine as soon as the date is finalizes, else start at least 3 to 4 months before your wedding day.
If you are not one of those who are blessed with an amazing skin naturally, you have to put an effort to get it flawless. Facials and cleaning cannot substitute for a healthy glow that comes from within. Try this pre-wedding skin care plan at the earliest to reap maximum benefits.
ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL GLOW!
Incorporate these changes in your lifestyle
Drink 2-3 litres of water-It flushes out the harmful wastes out of your body.
Have multi-vitamins– Well I am not advising you to start popping pills, but multi-vitamins would improve your overall health and would enhance the glow of your skin.
Workout atleast 4 times a week– Its high time that you detoxify your body of all the junk food. Exercising would keep your body healthy and it would reflect on your face too.
Follow a Daily Skin care Regime
Cleansing- I know it’s a painful task to wash your face every night before going to bed, but you must do it. Sleeping with your makeup is one of the primary reasons for acne breakouts. Ensure that your skin is clean after removing makeup.
Moisturizing- Moisturize your skin daily to ensure that your makeup is smooth on your final day and does not show fine lines on your skin.
Apply sunscreen – Don’t let the harmful effect of sun damage start showing up on your face anytime. Brown spots and discolorations appear without any warning and are difficult to get rid off. Apply sunscreen diligently to ensure that you don’t need a concealer to hide your spots. Read here to find the best sunscreen for your skin type.
Weekly treatments- Pamper yourself weekly by exfoliating, using a face pack or a face mask atleast once a week. Multani mitti works great for girls with oily skin while honey based face packs are great for those with dry skin.
Parlor treatment– Well every bride doesn’t need a facial, however unless your dermatologist has asked you not to, you should indulge in a few before your wedding. Try your first facial atleast 2-3 months before your wedding to see if it suits you and your last facial before your wedding should atleast be 2 days before the functions start. Makeup shouldn’t be applied immediately after a facial.
New cosmetics– Don’t try anything new on your skin in the last month. Stick to what suits your skin. This is not the time to experiment with something new.
Follow the above advices to have a healthy glowing skin on your wedding. All your efforts will definitely show on your skin over the next few months And remember, the perfect accessory to go with your face is your SMILE!
I am getting married next year so will be sharing a lot of details regarding the traditional Indian weddings. 🙂
