‘Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?’
The bride of course!
Beautifully glowing skin on the wedding day is every bride’s dream. In the last couple of months leading up to the wedding, brides can indulge in a variety of treatments to give their skin the smoothness required.
Exfoliating – Scrubs and Moroccan baths are a great way to get rid of dead cells and give you silky smooth skin. Time your exfoliating sessions at least a month before the wedding so you minimize risk of rashes or redness on sensitive skin.
Masks – Getting rid of dead cells is not enough. Nourish your skin once it has been scrubbed in order to leave it smooth. Honey and turmeric masks are age old secrets of glowing Indian brides.
This is one treatment that calls for serious attention when being executed. Firstly, we urge every bride to take time and find a good facial therapist. Settling for an unknown one in order to save a few bucks might not be the appropriate thing at a time like this. Secondly, understand the treatment being suggested and use your knowledge to determine whether it is something that is required for your skin type. Lastly, aim to have a facial at least a month prior to your big day because inflamed skin is a definite no-no for all brides. Once the facial has been done, make it a point to religiously stick to a skin care routine in order to maintain the clean skin until your wedding day.
The best gift any bride can give herself prior to the wedding is, time. Take a little time out for yourself every few days to relax.
Yoga – Simple breathing techniques and basic yogic postures under the guidance of a yoga instructor will not only relax you but leave you feeling rejuvenated which is a ‘must-feel’ for every bride.
Massages – Make it a point to visit a spa every week to indulge in Ayurvedic or any Eastern massages. Frequent massages will stimulate blood circulation thus giving you the energy you require during the wedding preparations as well as a healthy look.
Timing beauty treatments correctly and ensuring you stick to those timelines will take care of your grooming for your special day. Keep the above guidelines in mind and we assure you, as a bride, you will look the fairest of them all.
