Brides-to-be, this one's for you! As your big day draws closer and closer, we bet your excitement knows no bounds. And we don't want you facing any skin-related mishaps right before. However, having dry skin means always having to be on edge since you never know when your skin will start becoming flaky, itchy, or even develop dandruff. (Yup, face dandruff is a real thing!)
To prevent any of that from happening, we've devised the ultimate pre-bridal skincare routine for dry skin, that will take care of all the dryness, while also lending you a perfect glow just in time for your big day. Read on for more!
Step 01: Cleanse
Just because you have dry skin, doesn't mean you can forgo cleansing! Wash your face at night, just to get rid of the impurities your face may have garnered through the day, using a hydrating, refreshing wash that won't dry out your skin like the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash. With a soap-free formula that contains hydrating pro vitamin B and soothing vitamin E, this one is perfect for cleansing your skin while nourishing it too.
Step 02: Exfoliate
Sometimes, dry patches and clogged pores are a result of dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin. Get rid of them to reveal a radiant, hydrated complexion using the Lakmé Green Apple Apricot Gentle On Skin Deep Cleansing Gel Scrub. Its gentle, gel-based formula will cleanse your skin thoroughly, while ensuring that it doesn't dry out.
Step 03: Tone
Using a toner can make all the difference between hydrated and dry skin. But if all the toners you've ever seen are astringents and alcohol-based, allow us to nudge you in the direction of the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner. An ultra-light, refreshing toner that contains soothing arnica, balm mint, and lavender, this one's ideal for pre-bridal skin hydration through and through.
Step 04: Serum
You definitely don't want to miss this step if you're trying to achieve that pre-bridal glow! Using a serum daily can ensure that by the time your big day rolls in, you're glowing without any dryness or patchiness. Opt for the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster to relieve the dryness on your skin. Its unique combination of hyaluronic acid, algae extracts, and more, restore the moisture balance and even bring up moisture levels. Use this one before moisturisation, and you're golden!
Step 05: Moisturise
Kiss all fears of having dry skin on your big day goodbye by using an effective moisturiser. The Pond's Super Light Gel Moisturiser will ensure you get glowing skin sans dryness, since it contains the hydrating and nourishing properties of hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.
Step 06: Mask
This is a little trick we stole from K-beauty, but the best way to ensure your routine doesn't go to waste? Seal it in with a mask! End your routine with the Lakmé Blush & Glow Strawberry Sheet Mask a couple of times a week, to ensure all the products are properly seep through the top layer of the skin, and you'll have non-dry, glowing skin just in time for your big day!
