Your D-day is almost here and I know you are super excited to embark on this new journey and feel that marital bliss. Since its your special day, all eyes will be on you and this is why you need that glowing and flawless skin. Like all good things, getting that perfect skin on your wedding day will need extra effort and care, which means you need to go beyond your normal skincare routine.
Though you would be getting bridal makeup done, but that natural glow will definitely make a lot of difference and will also make your photographer's work pretty easy. The importance of natural skin care routine for a bride to be cannot be undermined. You must start early, which means you begin following natural skin care regime months before your wedding.I understand that your wedding preparations will keep you busy, that's why I am not asking you to do any major changes. Just keep in mind the below noted tips and you will be sorted for your special day. So let's get started!
1. Body massage is important
A good body massage with treatment oils can help you treat all kinds of skin issues. Apart from providing your skin with nourishment, it will also provide deep relaxation. From tanning to hyper pigmentation; everything can be treated with the help of natural ayurvedic treatment oils. You can also go for a full body ubtan. Using a good quality ubtan powder will leave your skin super soft and glowing. Treatments like these are a must for every bride to be and they hold a special importance in pre bridal preparations.
2. Start getting facials
You must start getting facials atleast 6 months before your wedding day. Different kind of face packs like turmeric face pack & sandalwood face pack will work wonders for your skin. Always ask your skincare professional to patch test all the products before they use them on your face. You must clearly tell them about all your skin issues before, this way they will be able to recommend products as per your skin condition. Getting a facial regularly will provide your skin deep cleansing plus hydration, which in turn will prepare your skin better for your bridal makeup. If you start early, you will be able to choose the best skincare expert and it also means that you will have enough time in hand to address any kind of skin problems which might crop up. It is surely not a good idea to get the services of a skincare expert just a few days before your wedding.
3. Do double cleansing at home:Apart from visiting the spa and salon regularly, you must also do daily cleansing at home. Due to our stressful lifestyle and pollution, it is important that you take cleansing seriously and do it daily without fail. You must go for a natural cleanser, which is gentle but still removes all makeup and dirt properly from your skin pores. After this, you should use a foaming cleanser because it leaves skin hydrated and nourished. Don't forget to use a good quality natural face moisturizer at the end. It would be great if you could spare time to carry out proper clean up atleast once a week.
4. Opt for natural skin care products to detox your skin:
I would suggest that you should completely stop using any skin care products which have harsh chemicals at least three months before your wedding. Instead, go for natural skin care products which won't harm your skin in anyway. This kind of detox of switching to natural products will surely work like magic for your skin. Regular exfoliation is another way to detox your skin. Dead cells which build up over time can make you skin look dull plus lifeless. Exfoliation will help in removing dead cells and will make your skin look vibrant and fresh. Use a gentle scrub and start exfoliating once a week and then you can gradually make it twice a week, if you feel your skin is able to tolerate it. Go for a natural scrub which is gentle on your skin. Trust me, it will bring out the best results.
5. Yoga can help a lotYou must make yoga an integral part of your pre bridal skin care routine. Few asanas can help improve blood circulation and can also tone your body. No wonder, many brides to be start yoga classes months before their special day. Apart from yoga, you must also do meditation to beat that wedding stress. Practicing yoga and meditation will not only give you glowing and flawless skin but will also make your hectic days less stressful.
6. Keep your skin hydrated
I understand that wedding preparations will keep you occupied and you might forget having enough water throughout the day. Always remember, if you want your skin to glow, have plenty of water. In addition to water, you must drink fresh juice, coconut water and herbal teas to keep yourself hydrated. Also, increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet.
7. Manage your stress
As a bride to be, you would want everything to be perfect for your wedding and managing all things can undoubtedly cause a lot of stress to you. Stress will make your skin look dull and could even cause breakouts. So, it is important that you look for ways to manage your stress. You are the best person to know what would help you the most. It can be anything from a relaxing body massage, a yoga session to reading your favorite book.
I am sure after going through this piece of information, you will be able to get that radiant and glowing skin on your special day. Always go for natural skincare products, because they won't harm your skin in any way. Wishing you all the best for this beautiful new phase of your life.
