Our Ultimate Skin Care Guide For Brides-To-Be

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! No one who hasn’t been where you are can fully relate to what you’re feeling at this time. There is the excitement of finally seeing this long-awaited day become a reality. On the other hand, there is also the anxiety of just hoping that everything goes the way you’ve planned it — a major victory for a wedding in this topsy turvy year.

One thing’s for sure: With everything you have to contend with in 2020, you deserve to look your very best on your big day. This means taking good care of yourself. In this post we’re going to focus on skincare and having that healthy glow for your wedding photos.

Skin: Manage Stress

From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, there’s no end to the beauty bummers headed your way if you don’t get your wedding-planning stress under control. On the complexion front, says NYC dermatologist Dendy Engelman, “Many inflammatory conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, and keratosis pilaris, may be at least partially caused by stress. As stress weakens the immune system, chronic inflammation worsens.” Excess anxiety can also disrupt your sleep, which in turn can lead to a gray, decidedly un-bridal complexion. The fix? Do what you can to chill out, whether that means hitting a yoga class after work or guided meditation apps such as Headspace and Omvana. Read more at Brides…

Do all you can to relax. This means getting enough sleep and working smart. You will also do well to know when to pause all the planning and just give yourself a break!

Cleansing your skin is a no-brainer. Depending on your skin type, choose the facial cleanser that is suitable for your skin. You also need to keep your face moisturized. What about your eyes?

Use Under Eye Cream

Dark circles, crows feet, puffiness can spoil your look as well as your wedding pics. If you are suffering from any of these issues you need to fix it before the big day arrives. Look for eye creams that contain a combination of both brightening and moisturizing agents. The correct time to apply any eye cream is a few minutes before bedtime.

Here is an effective DIY eye cream recipe to banish those stubborn dark circles, crows feet in a week and reveal sparkling eyes.

  • Vitamin C Capsule – 1 nos
  • Sweet Almond Oil or Vitamin E Oil – 2 tsp
  • Aloe Vera Gel – 2 tbsp

Combine all these ingredients together and store it in an airtight container. Keep this in the refrigerator and apply chilled for maximum results. Read more at The Beauty Madness…

One big reason you want to ensure you’re in your best looks is this – the photos. It makes no sense to have a wedding photoshoot weeks after the actual wedding – just to get your skin ready. And who wants wedding photos that are anything less than perfect?

As you do your best to take care of your skin, the summer weather could counteract your efforts. What can you do to prevent your skin from becoming excessively tanned?

Tanning is a major skin concern in summers and brides-to-be need to be extra careful. To avoid tanned skin showing prominently in your wedding album, always ensure that you have slathered enough sunscreen before stepping out. Use the non-sticky Lakmé  Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen and keep re-applying every 3-4 hours for effective results.

A home remedy is to use a mixture of besan, lemon and rose petals on your skin and wipe it off with a cotton ball dipped in cold water. Massage your face thoroughly and apply a lightweight moisturiser, such as the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Follow this routine before hitting the bed for glowing skin in summer.

You will also need to be on the lookout for any pimples that appear from sweating or stress. If you have a breakout, aloe vera has proven to be helpful for many brides-to-be. Keeping yourself properly hydrated will definitely help as well.
