Cheers on getting hitched! While you're exhilarated to plan your wedding, we are too! And hence, we have a list of the best bridal beauty tips your need to keep in mind before your big day. With all the pressure and stress of choosing the perfect lehenga, preparing the guest list and all the other wedding preparations, you cannot afford to miss out on your beauty regime. After all, no amounts of makeup can match the kind of skin that glows from within. Here we have for you top 9 skincare and haircare tips for the perfect bridal look.
Let's get started!
1. For glossy skin
Every bride wants all eyes to be on her. And why not, you're the star of your wedding after all. Having good skin has the power to multiply your confidence and your overall look. Add ubtan and body oiling in your wedding beauty regimen today. Ubtan has been an Indian beauty regimen for ages now. Do every week until your wedding and it will make your skin really healthy and glowing. However, if you don't have enough time to prepare ubtan every time, you can try out Mamaearth's body ubtan which is all-natural.
After showering, use a good body oil and massage it thoroughly into your skin. I recommend you go for Palmers Intense skin repair oil which is very light on your skin and smells divine.
2. Hydrate yourself
Keeping your skin hydrated just from the outside by using a ton of moisturizers is just not enough. Having 2-3 litres of water every single day can not only make your skin glow but also keep all the skin problems at bay.
3. Follow a hair care routine
For gorgeous looking hair that looks photo-ready, taking care of your hair is just important. Instead of using generic hair oils, make your tresses feel expensive by using an oil that's custom-made for your hair. You can try out Freewill's Personalized Hair Oil that uses all-natural ingredients and is absolutely chemical-free. They prepare hair oils specific to your hair needs and goals. Regular hair oiling at least once a week nutrifies your hair and makes it soft and healthy.
4. The magic of facial oils
We all admire the glass skin look on beauty gurus and celebrities. To achieve the same throughout your wedding, facial oils are your way to go! These have been an essential part of the Korean beauty skin regimes and no wonder they have such perfect skin. Pick facial oils that suit your skin for example- tea tree for acne, lemon for brighter skin etc. You can try out Nykaa's skin potion and essential oil range to pick out what suits you the best. You can use them as it is or mix it up with your moisturizer.
5. Waxing routine
Follow a weekly or bi-weekly process of hair removal. Stick to the hair removal technique that has always worked for you and avoid trying out something new, especially if you have sensitive skin. Keep yourself well-groomed by getting your facial hair fixed every once in a while. Always follow it up with some aloe vera gel to calm any irritation on your skin.
Avoid doing hair removal from your face just before your big day to avoid any rashes or redness.
6. Regular Steaming
If you don't have enough time for getting frequent facials, the best way to boost hydration and keep your skin cleaned is by facial steaming. You can add green tea or lemon to the water as well, to boost the glow on your face. Steaming improves blood circulation on your face and helps in getting rid of any bacteria. Invest in a good facial steamer and these are easily available online.
7. Moisturize religiously
Moisturize your body every time you take a shower so keep your skin looking fresh and hydrated. It helps in fighting and keeping skin problems away, balances the skins pH level by making sure it doesn't get too oily or extremely dry. Invest in a good jar of body lotion. You can try out Mcaffeine's body butter which has a thick formula that goes deep into your skin and repairs dead skin cells.
8. Make your lashes naturally long
If you want your lashes to look naturally long in all those close-up shots, you can get them in no time! Take an old mascara container and wash it off to make it squeaky clean. Pour some castor oil into it. Break a capsule of vitamin- E and pour it as well. Mix it and apply this oil on your lashes every night before you go to bed. Within two weeks, you'll be able to see visibly longer lashes.
9. A healthy lifestyle
You are beautiful the way you are. But a healthy lifestyle can surely help you amp up your confidence when you walk down the aisle. It's not always necessary to go all out with a strict diet and intense workout. You can achieve a healthy body by simply eating right and in moderate quantities. Something as simple as home workouts, Zumba and yoga can prevent your stomach from getting bloated and make you feel light and composed. Make sure to indulge in some form of physical activity every day.
