Summer is that time of the year, when no matter how much you have been caring for your skin, it will still get oily and make your face look drab and dehydrated. While eating healthy (we’re talking fresh juices and green leafy vegetables) and wholesome food will help you achieve that inner glow, it is every bride’s dream to flaunt radiant skin on her D-day. Summers can bring your beauty game down, but a few hacks can save you. Here are some quick remedies you need to follow a week before your D-day…
- Say goodbye to tanned skin
- Easy remedy to treat acne
- Sunburn solvers
- Get rid of pigmentation
- Refresh your eyes
Say goodbye to tanned skin
Tanning is a major skin concern in summers and brides-to-be need to be extra careful. To avoid tanned skin showing prominently in your wedding album, always ensure that you have slathered enough sunscreen before stepping out. Use the non-sticky Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen and keep re-applying every 3-4 hours for effective results.
A home remedy is to use a mixture of besan, lemon and rose petals on your skin and wipe it off with a cotton ball dipped in cold water. Massage your face thoroughly and apply a lightweight moisturiser, such as the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Follow this routine before hitting the bed for glowing skin in summer.
Easy remedy to treat acne
Excessive sweating can cause pimples. You wouldn’t want those zits popping up in your wedding pictures, do you? An easy remedy to treat acne is to prepare a paste of aloe vera and cucumber juice and apply it on your skin twice a day. This will not only keep the infection away but also leave you with a radiant glow.
The scorching heat can lead to harsh sunburns, thereby causing red rashes all over your skin. Make ice cubes using aloe vera gel and apply it to your face, neck and other affected areas at night. Aloe vera helps in healing skin irritations and the ice cubes will reduce the burning sensation.
Get rid of pigmentation
The best way to treat scars on your face is by applying lemon juice on your skin regularly. Adding a pinch of cinnamon or turmeric will help ease the dark spots. One of the keys to achieving radiant skin is good old vitamin C. The super ingredient banishes dark spots and improves skin tone, thereby helping you achieve beautiful glowy skin.
Refresh your eyes
Tired-looking eyes are a common phenomenon in summers. To look like you have wide, doe-eyes in your wedding pictures, try cooling down your eyes with a few drops of rose water. To get rid of dark circles, dip a ball of cotton in rose water and place it on your eyes. As an alternative, you could also spray rose water on your eyes to cool them down.
