Skin breakouts are a bride’s biggest enemy! Prepping for your wedding trousseau is not as much of a stress as is preventing your skin from breaking out on your D-day. And, every bride-to-be will agree!
Skin-related questions like “how to avoid my skin from looking excessively oily”, “how often should I cleanse my face” and “what foods should I avoid” are on every bride’s mind a few days before her wedding. Because who wants to flaunt a not-so-pretty pimple on their most special day? Here’s everything you need to do in order to prevent breakouts on your D-day:
01. Don’t sleep with makeup on
All the wedding prep can leave you tired and exhausted, and all you want to do is hit the sheets once home. But wait… before you snooze, remember to take all that makeup off. Yes, it may sound like a boring task, but it will prevent your skin from breaking out on your wedding day. Keep your face clean and if time permits, then do a double cleanse.
02. Avoid touching your face
03. Change your towels and sheets
04. Say no to exfoliation
Exfoliating is a great skincare habit and you must definitely exfoliate at least twice or thrice a week. However, if you’re closer to your D-day, then STOP exfoliating. Yes, you read that right! Scrubs can be harsh, irritate your skin and cause redness and blotchiness. A gentle cleanser and moisturiser can do the trick for you. Use a gentle face wash such as the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash that will thoroughly wash away impurities and leave your skin clean and fresh.
05. Hide from the sun
The harsh UV rays can cause skin irritation and redness, leading to serious skin damage as well as breakouts. Therefore, avoid stepping out in the sun as much as you can a few days before your wedding. And if you absolutely have to, then wear protective clothing, cover your head and slather enough sunscreen. Doing so will not only protect your skin against acne but also avoid unwanted tan lines.
