Wedding Season is around the corner and most brides have their check list ready. But, what about their skincare checklist? In an inundated market with innumerable beauty products that promise to deliver miraculous results, finding the best skincare routine to achieve that perfect acne-free, dark spot-free, glass-like glowing, supple skin on your wedding day can be a daunting task.
Here are few skincare tips that a bride-to-be can follow to achieve a glowing skin from within:
From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, there's no end to the list of beauty bummers that are associated with unmanaged stress. Many inflammatory conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, hairfall, etc.may be at least partially caused by stress. Focus on more relaxation techniques like making to-do lists, prioritizing work, breathing exercises, meditation, etc.
Exfoliate and Follow Up With a Brightening Serum
As dead cells accumulate on the skin, they interfere with light reflection, giving it a dull appearance. Hence, it is imperative to do regular exfoliation paired (once or twice a week) with a brightening serum to give you the best lit-from-within glow on your wedding day.
Take Care of Your Body Routine
It's not just your face that needs proper TLC, your body care routine must be on point as well. Opt for gentle soaps and body washes for your bathing needs. Avoid a hot shower as it dries out the skin. Use a rich body oil to nourish your skin atleast twice a day. Indulge in an exfoliating session to get rid of dead skin cells from your skin and reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. Moisturize your hands and feet regularly.
Sweat It Out
When you sweat, you allow your body to flush out all the impurities that are embedded in the dermal layer—from pollutants and dirt to old makeup and chemical residue. Regular sweating can improve the tone, clarity and texture of the skin.
Deep Clean With a Mask
A mask isn't meant to replace your daily face-washing routine; it's only meant to enhance it. The nourishing properties of a mask help add extra boost to the skin. If your skin is oily, use a mask every other day. If you have dry skin, once or twice per week should keep oil and dirt from building up.
Treat the Skin From Within
The saying goes that you ‘can’t outrun a bad diet’, and the same could be said for your skin. Eating well will need to go hand in hand with any products you’re relying on for a radiant glow. Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits and probiotic, fermented foods. Reduce sugary foods and drinks, dairy, or any other food that you think doesn’t suit you quite well.
Sleep Like a Baby
Always remember that a sound sleep of 7-9 hours gives deep rest to the body and helps it rejuvenate. It also keeps the skin glowing and dark circles at bay!
Face massage with a rich face oil strengthens facial structure and gives a chiseled face with an unbeatable glow. You can massage your face with your fingers or even use a gua sha or face roller.
