Everybody wants to look their best on their big day - you and I are no different!
Once done with the engagement ceremony, it's time to get into the nitty-gritty of looking fantastic on your wedding day. However, this does not come easy and it requires a carefully thought-out wedding beauty regimen that promises glowing, luminous skin on the big event.
Apart from obsessing over the venue, invitation cards, dresses, and the menu, your skin needs your attention too. Being a major life event, getting married brings with it tonnes of stress which is one of the underlying reasons for breakouts prior to the wedding. However, with conscious effort and tweaks in your skincare routine, you can walk down the aisle with the best skin of your life.
The ultimate pre-wedding skincare routine should keep in view the following tips:
Avoid Getting a Facial Close to the Wedding Although it may feel like a facial is all you want before the wedding to unwind, facials tend to be harsh on the skin. Drawing out impurities and cleansing the skin is the way to go but they might result in breakouts and redness on the face a few days after, and that’s one thing we don’t want on our big day!
Good Cleanser Goes a Long Way If you have a cleanser that you swear by, stick to it! Changing the skincare routine too close to the wedding is a big no-no. Opting for a cleanser such as the Clarifying Oil-Free Cleanser, that doesn’t strip the skin of natural moisture is a good place to start.
Exfoliate Gently It might feel as though an exfoliant isn’t working if it does not have coarse bits in it, but that’s not the case. Exfoliation is essential for glowing, radiant skin. Sometimes a gentle amount of glycolic acid is all it takes to remove the dead cells from the surface of the skin to give you that natural glow. Have you tried the Clarifying Microfoliant Scrub yet?
No Need to Go Overboard With Masks Major skin trouble for most of us living in Pakistan is skin congestion. Working around the clock and having makeup on all day adds to it. All of this coupled with being exposed to pollutants can potentially leave the skin feeling clogged and dull. Adding an effective yet gentle mask to your skincare routine and using it once to twice a week is advised for reversing the effects of skin damage and adding an unparalleled glow to the skin.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize One thing that is going to help you get that glow on your wedding day is staying moisturized. Steering the skin clear of dryness and incorporating a moisturizer rich in hyaluronic acid can do wonders to the skin. Gliding on smoothly and enriching the skin at the same time, Nourishing Moisturizer ensures a healthy glow and makes it a pre-wedding essential with good reason!
Facial Massages Are the New Cool Caught up in a sea of new skincare products and coming across advertisements for the next big thing in beauty, we often overlook the importance of a good facial massage. Although using various products brings its benefits, their application procedure and techniques are just as important! Use a few drops of your favorite night oil and take out 5-10 minutes thrice a week to massage it onto your face and neck, allowing for increased blood circulation for plump skin on your wedding day.
Swear by SPF Using good old sunscreen goes a long way. Incorporating it into your skin prep routine pre-wedding, SPF can help shield the skin against the harsh sun and prevent sun damage. Sunscreen acts as a defense between your skin and the sun, making sure it stays fresh and youthful for longer.
Do you have your pre-wedding skincare routine sorted? If not, you’re missing out big time! Keep these tips in mind along with eating healthy, staying hydrated, and exercising to get naturally glowing skin on your wedding day.
