Wedding skincare is a vast topic, but here we have filtered out Top 10 beauty tips you need to know to kick-start your bridal skincare journey. Enjoy this process!
The cleansing, toning and moisturizing ritual have been around for ages now, but still, most of us don’t follow it. All the products required for this are probably already out there is your vanity, just put them to the correct use. A good chemical-free face wash, toner or something as basic as rose water is perfect and a good moisturizer which suits your skin type. Toners are important to remove excess oil from your face, soothing, nourishing and maintaining skin’s pH balance. Moisturizers prevent breakouts and other skin problems. Following this routine, twice a day can make your skin look super healthy and you’ll be able to see visible results in less than two weeks.
2. Sweat it out
Amping up your fitness routine before the big day isn’t just about looking your best, but feeling your best for that big walk down the aisle( cuz hey, you don’t get to do all this every day!) and your sangeet performance of course.
All the stress of planning and shopping requires some sort of workout to reduce all the mental stress. You can start with something as simple as yoga, or go for Zumba if you love dancing.
Here are some recommendations you could check out on YouTube-
Meditation& Yoga- Yoga with Adriene
Full body workout- Blogilates
Bollywood Zumba- Dhruvi Shah
3. Detox Water to cleanse your body from within
“A healthy outside starts from the inside”. Detox water helps you increase your regular water intake which keeps you hydrated and at the same time flushes out all the toxins from your body. This is the one detox water recipe we swear by.
Ingredients- A jar of water, Mint leaves, Lemon juice, cucumber slices, crushed ginger, seasonal fruits(orange, watermelon etc)
Put everything in a jar and let it sit for 30-45mins so that all the goodness gets infused into the water. You can sip on it throughout the day and it’s super delicious.
4. Facial steaming
Facial steaming aids in boosting hydration, and also has a soothing, smoothing effect on your skin and which also boosts radiance. It’s also a great way to get rid of headaches (choosing between different outfit options is a task, we know!) or cold and cough. This is honestly this best skincare tip you must try out. You can do it using the traditional way of taking a bowl of hot water and a towel or you can also buy facial steaming machines that are easily available online on Nykaa and Amazon. You can add in some lemon slices to the hot water to get a more fresh feeling.
5. Full body exfoliation
If there’s one day in your life when you would want clear, glowing and healthy-looking skin, it’s your wedding day! It’s important to exfoliate your body at least once a week to get rid of any dead skin cells. Exfoliation can eventually make your skin more even-toned and glowing as it encourages blood circulation. You can make a DIY homemade scrub by mixing coffee powder and coconut oil in a 1:1 ratio or you can buy one which is natural and gentle on your skin.
Another skincare tip would be that if you’re too lazy to make a scrub and use it you can also buy an exfoliating glove by the brand GUBB USA which is very affordable and effective. I recommend you to go for Nykaa’s wanderlust range which has some really good scrubs.
6. Have a hair plan
If there’s ever an excuse to splurge a bit, it’s getting married. Needless to say, great bridal locks require a little extra love and care. In the current scenario, it is not wise to go for a regular salon visit just for SPA & relaxing. Alternatively, you can build an effective hair care routine at home. The most important is finding the right shampoo and conditioner keeping your hair goals in mind. If it is difficult to find shampoo for your hair goals that suit your hair type then you can go for Freewill hair care solution which curates shampoos and conditioners for your hair type.
Tip: Avoid using too many heat styling tools to avoid any unnecessary damage to your hair.
7. Go for a Dental check-up
You have the power to woo everyone with your gorgeous smile, so might as well take care of it! Get a regular check-up done or simply go for teeth whitening treatment of you’re feeling a little extra. Avoid red wine and coffee as they cause to stain your teeth.
A homemade remedy that you can try out for healthier look teeth is-Take half a glass of warm water and mix half a teaspoon of salt into it. Gargle with it every night before going to bed. This is also a great solution if you have sensitive teeth!
Your diamond engagement ring would look even more gorgeous with your nails done! Maintain them with regular manicures. A skincare tip we would like to add here would be to massage your fingertips with almond oil every day for healthier cuticles and longer nails.
You could even get nail extensions done which last for comparatively a longer time. Nail extensions usually cost anywhere between 2000-3000 depending upon how fancy you want them to be.
9. Regular Manicures and pedicures
From head to toe, focusing on every part of your body is essential if you want that perfect bridal look. You can do it easily at home by following these skincare tips
– Prepare your foot soak with a mild shampoo, lemon juice and warm water.
– Soak your hands and feet for 10mins followed by scrubbing your feet using a foot scrubber
– Follow it up with a good mask of your choice
– Pat dry and put your favourite nail paint on!
10. Invest in good quality makeup
Won’t you be looking at your wedding photos all your life? After following all the skincare tips, it’s equally important to pay attention to the kind of makeup you will be using. Investing in a good quality makeup kit is extremely essential to get a flawless photogenic look.
For all the functions pre-wedding and post-wedding when you’ll not be getting a makeup artist to get the makeup done, this skincare and makeup kit will come to your rescue! You can buy your makeup products from brands like Mac if you’re looking for a high-end brand or Faces Canada for affordable makeup.Refer a CoupleSign Up
