Look stunning on your big day
The wedding season has arrived, and it is the time when most people are busy shopping and pampering themselves to look good. However, all eyes are always on the bride and the groom, who have to shoulder the pressure of looking their best on the big day. Here are a few pre-wedding tips for brides-to-be:

Follow a skincare regime

Cleansing, toning, and moisturising is mandatory. This will keep your skin glowing and youthful. Cleansing will help keep your pores open. Toning will tighten the pores. It will also reduce fine lines to some extent. Lastly, moisturising the face will lock in the moisture into the pores, and keep your skin soft and supple. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen without fail.

Consult a dermatologist

If you have a sensitive skin, consult a dermatologist. Opt for professional treatments for patchy skin, sunburns, and pigmentation. Microdermabrasion treatments from professional aestheticians is also a good fix for scars and blemishes. Start your treatments  at least six months before the wedding.

Regular mani-pedis

After stressing about their face, brides often forget to take care of their hands and feet. Schedule at least four to five manicures and pedicures before the big day. Keep your nails and hands primed and pretty. This is your chance to experiment with colours.

Hair treatments

For healthy and shiny hair, go for hair spa treatments once a month, at least six months before the wedding. If you are not fond of chemical hair spas, you can try some homemade hair masks. Also ask your beautician to try out different hair styles and choose the best one for your wedding day.

A nutritious diet

Make your diet as healthy as possible. Include leafy vegetables, salads and fruits in your meals. Although looking slim is the goal, it is important not to look weak. So, avoid skipping meals and going on crash diets. Try and avoid sugar, salty and processed foods that increase the belly fat.

Sleep well

Sleep is an absolute must before the wedding. Lack of sleep can give you dark circles. Clean skin, with dark circles under the eyes, will not be a sight to behold. So, we advise you to sleep at least for 8 to 10 hours a day.

Use good skin products

Don’t compromise on the quality of skincare products. Always keep a sunscreen in your vanity kit. Ensure that you use the same brand of toner, moisturiser and face pack. Sometimes using products of different brands can also cause skin allergies.

Exercise regularly

Work out on a regular basis. Exercise will help tighten your body, while also detoxing your skin. A good workout can energise you, help you lose weight and make you feel happy. Meditate for at least 15 minutes a day to deal with stress. Try to have positive thoughts. You will feel serene, and the wedding will feel like a breeze. Inner peace will lead to better wedding photographs too.
