You can pick the most gorgeous bridal outfit and choose the best makeup artist for your D-day, but your broad smile and that natural glow on your skin is what should steal the show. However, this is one thing most of us often overlook – skin care. If there’s anything that needs your undivided attention amidst your wedding preparations, it’s your pre-bridal skincare. We’ve got some great tips that you call follow much before your wedding day arrives. If you’re a bride-to-be, check out these ultimate tips and get you started on your skincare journey.
Best Pre-Bridal Skincare Tips to Follow at Home
The following pre-bridal skincare tips are some of the best that you can follow at home. Just remember to be consistent with it and take your time to give yourself the much-needed pampering before your big day. A bridal skincare routine at home can give you the perfect glow that you deserve to flaunt on your special occasion. All of what’s mentioned down below is something that you can follow over the course of a year or six months before your wedding day. Instead of booking appointments and rushing out to get various treatments, you can do this routine daily from the comfort of your home and with minimal expenses.
1. Start with a Natural Skincare Routine
Understandably, you’d want to get only the best treatments for your D-day that promise you sure shot results. And that’s exactly why it is ideal to begin with a natural skincare routine instead of going all out with experimental treatments. Why? Because your skin is going to take its time to get used to skincare products. So, it’s better to keep your bridal skincare routine as natural as possible and not expose yourself to the risk of any skin reaction. Besides, expensive salon treatments include various chemicals, which can have adverse effects on your skin and have a negative outcome if it doesn’t suit you. Be minimal with layering your trusted skincare products and don’t go overboard with chemical ones. Use skincare products that are organic and contain natural ingredients. You can also exfoliate twice every week, and ask someone from your family to give you a good facial once in a while (or do it yourself). All in all, practising a natural skincare routine before your wedding will only serve as a big advantage
2. Follow a Strict Day and Night Skin Regimen
Now that you’re clear that you need to start following a pre-bridal skincare routine before your wedding day arrives, let’s move to the next crucial tip. While it’s important to have a routine in place, it shouldn’t be restricted only to the mornings, following a skincare regime at night is equally important. Your skin has different needs in the AM and the PM. A few steps might be common in both the routines but some additional steps make all the difference to how your skin is treated in the day versus the night. Most importantly, wear sunscreen every single day, no matter the weather or your plan for the day. This should be the hero product in your morning skincare routine. Similarly, a nourishing eye cream should be the essential product to apply each night before hitting the bed. It helps soothe the sensitive skin around your eyes and gives them the moisturisation that it needs after a hectic day.
3. Do Not Skip on CTM
CTM stands for Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising. Do not skip these three steps no matter how busy or tired you might be in the mornings and the nights. Cleansing is important because it helps get rid of all the dirt and grime that is collected on your face throughout the day. A good cleanser like the Pure Sense Rejuvenating Grapefruit Revitalising Face Cleansing Gel can help remove all the makeup, dirt, grime and impurities from your face. The grapefruit extracts help elevate dull complexion and as this cleanser is sulphate-free and made with organic ingredients, it is totally safe to use and suitable for your skin. Toning will help you unclog the pores and prep your skin for the next step. Moisturiser is another crucial product in your pre-bridal skincare routine and should be applied both during the daytime and the night-time. Why? Because it locks in all the moisture that your skin needs, leaving it soft, supple and shining.
4. Apply a Face Pack at Least Once a Week
Your wedding glow should be top-notch and a face pack or mask can greatly help you achieve that. Start pampering your skin with a natural face pack at least once a week. Introduce this step in your at-home bridal skincare routine around 3 months before the wedding day. If you’re trying DIY face packs, make sure to pick ingredients that are natural and suit your skin type. Do a patch test to check whether they have any harmful reactions on your skin. Yoghurt, honey, besan, turmeric, lemon, cucumber and avocado are some of the natural ingredients that you can use to make your DIY face packs. One of the easiest DIY face packs that you can make at home includes Multani mitti (fuller’s earth). Mix it with a pinch of turmeric powder, sandalwood powder, and a few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it all over your face and neck. It’s one of the age-old remedies that is sure to give you naturally radiating skin. If you don’t have time for DIY face packs, you can try the Pure Sense Grapefruit Revitalising 3 in 1 Face Mask, Scrub & Cleanser that is packed with grapefruit, capric triglyceride and kaolin. All of these, when combined, exfoliate your skin, clear the pores and hydrates your skin from within.
5. Get Body Massages at Home to Release Muscle Stress
Stress is never a good thing in general, but it’s tough to avoid it during the wedding preparations and it shows on your skin quite evidently on your wedding day. So to get rid of it, make body massages a part of your bridal skin care routine at home to release all the stress that builds up in your muscles. You can use the Pure Sense Macadamia Hand-Poured Body Massage Candle for your rejuvenating massage session. Light up the candle and begin de-stressing yourself with meditation or yoga. Once your mind is relaxed, scoop out some of the wax from the candle (after putting it out) and gently massage it all over your body to relax your muscles and nourish your skin. This 2-in-1 formula soothes your senses while restoring skin elasticity. The massage candle is one of its kind that helps moisturise your skin and relax your body as well as mind. Also, to keep your stress at bay in general, you can practice yoga every morning or listen to some soothing music while you meditate. It is crucial to take some time out for yourself between all the hustle-bustle of your wedding preparation. If yoga and meditation don’t work for you, identify what relieves your mind and heart the best and practice that.
6. Start a Healthy Diet
While taking care of your skin from the outside, don’t forget to take good care of it from the inside. Start following a healthy diet at least six months before your D-day. What you eat will reflect on your skin and you wouldn’t want spots all around your face, would you? You can consult a dietician for the same or follow a basic diet plan where you cut down on sugary foods and avoid junk foods like chocolates, processed snacks, sodas, etc. Start consuming fruits and green leafy vegetables daily. Include whole grains like wheat, jowar and bajra in your diet. Munch on nuts when you get hungry as they help detoxify your system, and give you a healthy glow. You can also eat raw vegetables like beetroot, carrot and cucumber as they nourish your skin as well.
7. Drink Two to Three Litres of Water Per Day
It is as vital to keep your system hydrated as it is to eat good food. You must consume at least two to three litres of water every day. This pre-bridal skin care tip will definitely go a long way in keeping your skin looking hydrated and healthy from within at all times. It also helps suppress your appetite so that you don’t end up overeating unusual or junk foods. Not just that, water helps flush out the toxins and gives you clear and radiant skin. Along with water, you can also consume other drinks like coconut water and lime juice throughout the day. You can also munch on fruits that have high water content, such as watermelon that has 92% water or sip on some herbal teas.
8. Get Enough Sleep
The term ‘beauty sleep’ itself suggests how important sleep is for your beauty. So, make sure to get at least seven to eight hours of quality sleep at night. It doesn’t just help your body and mind to relax but all the cell regeneration and creation of body tissues happen when you sleep. Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep as it calms your central nervous system and also helps relieve stress amongst other things. Sleep should be your best friend and including it as one of the most important tips for pre-wedding skin care at home will only promise a natural glow on your beautiful face.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many days before the wedding should I start my skincare routine?
Ideally, it’s better to start prepping your skin six to eight months before your wedding. But if somehow you couldn’t find or don’t have that much time to do skin care, a two-month frame is good enough to stick to the basics of skincare. Just remember to be consistent with your skin care every single morning and night. Be thorough with cleansing, toning and moisturising twice a day. Invest in some good skincare products with natural ingredients for your bridal skin care routines.
What are the steps of facials at home?
Start with using a gentle cleanser that helps cleanse your face and remove all the impurities and makeup. Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells and unclog pores. Steam as the next step after exfoliation helps loosen the skin and pores. It even increases blood flow and hydrates your skin. Masking can be the next step where you can use any type of face mask from gel, clay, cream or sheet masks. Treating your skin with a serum that tends to your skin concerns helps clear the skin and bring a natural glow. Moisturisation is another important step as it helps lock all the hydration in your face.
How many times should a facial be done?
If you wish to deal with certain skin issues like acne, burns or pigmentation, you need to get facials done once every two weeks. As the wedding date gets closer, you can start getting facials every week. Make sure to indulge in facials at least six to eight months before your wedding day so that the treatments get enough time to work on your skin.
