Pre-Bridal Skin Care Tips for Glowing Skin
Let us discuss some pre-bridal natural skin care tips for glowing skin that you can consider before your big day.
1. Face spa
Quick tip? Start 6 months before the wedding. Face spa is great, but it cannot give you instant results. It needs to be done consistently and over a good period of time so that you can reap the benefits. In case you don’t have much time left, you can go for gold facials twice a month. However, remember to take a patch test before you go for the facial. Or else you may end up with burns and scars that you will definitely not want, wedding or not.
If you notice your skin looking tired and dull, Lakmé Absolute Fresh Life Essence is what you need for an energised glow. It comes with a revolutionary formula that penetrates up to 15 layers deep to hydrate and nourishes the skin. It is a lightweight essence infused with peridot stone extract- a rare gem, rich in minerals. It helps reduce the effect of visible signs of stress on the skin, making your skin appear revitalized, brightened, and energised.
2. Hair spa
Just like a facial spa, a hair spa is also something that you would want before your wedding. Due to stress and pollution, our hair starts to lose its shine and lustre. A hair spa, done consistently over a period of time, can help you get that back. Just like your facials, remember to go for your hair spas as well. Once a month should be enough. Just in case you are not comfortable drowning your hair in chemical treatments, there are many home remedies that you can try as well.
This is one step in the skincare routine that many either skip or forget. Do neither, especially if you are a bride-to-be. Regular exfoliation helps your skin breathe as it removes the dead skin cell build-up and smooths out any texture on the skin. You do not need to put coarse scrubs on your skin. You can simply purchase products with the right ingredients that can exfoliate your skin gently. Also, remember to not exfoliate your skin every day. Just once or twice a week is enough. You can also look at some of the homemade scrub recipes that work just as well. Remember to start at least six months before the wedding.
4. CTM routine
Do you have a proper CTM routine? Don’t worry, it is not anything complicated. It simply refers to cleansing, toning and moisturising, three essential steps for a good skincare routine. First, figure out your skin type and what ingredients work best for you. If you have sensitive skin, choose either organic products or products that are free from sulfates and parabens. Consult your dermatologist. Either way, figure out a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser for your skin and follow the routine twice a day. Don’t forget to top it off with sunscreen during the day to prevent any damage.
You can also add a skin-brightening serum to your CTM routine daily atleast 6 months before your wedding. The Pond's Bright Beauty Spot-less Glow Serum provides a triple glow that helps deliver bright, hydrated and smooth skin. This serum formula is 60X better than Vitamin C and contains Gluta-Boost-C which effectively brightens your skin to help reduce the appearance of dark spots. It also has Niacinamide which helps smoothen skin while minimizing the appearance of visible pores and Hyaluronic Acid that goes deep within your skin to give you a plump and hydrated glow.
Follow it up with the Pond’s Bright Beauty Serum Cream during the day. It is a revolutionary anti-spot solution that comes with pro-vitamin B3 is clinically proven to fade stubborn dark spots from within and gives you spot-less brightness.
5. Clinical treatments
Do you have too many marks and spots on the skin? Clinical treatments are a good option for any hyperpigmentation. Again, connect with a good dermatologist who can suggest what is good for you, like microdermabrasion, a chemical peel or any other treatment. A course of six months will help your skin heal and breathe, so you can reap the benefits of the treatment entirely.
For hyperpigmentation you can also use the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Serum which is enriched with 98% Pure Niacinamide. This serum gives you Hi-res crystal radiance and 2x skin brightening. It improves uneven skin tone, moisturises your skin and boosts radiance. Use it twice daily to notice a visible difference.
You don’t want those dark circles and under-eye puffiness, do you? Agreed, there are concealers and under-eye creams and gels that can work, but nothing is miraculous. The only thing that can work is getting ample sleep and having a good diet that is high on nutrition. We would advise you to get at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep every day, for healthy skin and beautiful eyes. Regulate your sleep cycle at least six months before your wedding.
Last, but certainly not least, hydrate yourself. It is important to have at least 8-10 glasses of water. Hydration ensures that you have clean and smooth skin that is never dry. Also, it helps keep your body toxin-free, which further helps in clearing up your skin. This will also prevent acne and subsequent marks.
