The months leading up to your wedding are filled with different emotions--happiness, nervousness and a lot more. With the emotional overload, it’s no wonder that brides-to-be who have always had clear skin also start facing skin problems. But the last thing you want on your wedding day is a face full of pimples.
To ensure you have a stunning glow as you walk down the aisle, it is important to make some smart diet choices. This 30-day diet plan will give you the skin of your dreams and keep skin problems at bay.
But before we move on to that, here are a few things you should do in order to fully achieve your goal.
Boost physical activity
While it is essential to get rest and relax before the big day, it is also important to stay physically active. You can start with simple activities such as brisk walking, a short jog or a few exercises at home. If you currently exercise three days a week, amp it up to five, but do not exert yourself. Take regular breaks so you don’t end up looking tired and exhausted.
Avoid processed food
Artificial sweeteners and processed foods that come in cans and packages are extremely unhealthy for your body and skin. Avoid them at all costs. In fact, prepare your meals at home and reduce eating out where the chances of ending up consuming processed foods with high sodium levels is more.
Drink plenty of water
No matter what skin treatment or diet you follow, none of it will show results if your body is not well hydrated. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins from the body. This will also make your skin glow and look plumper.
And now for the diet…
