Going to be a bride soon? You must be going through a roller coaster of emotions – excitement, nervousness, anxiousness, and everything in between. From taking care of your wedding dress and booking your hair & makeup artist to finalising the wedding venue, the to-do wedding list for a bride-to-be is never-ending.
And with all this on your plate, you are probably doing everything you can to achieve that dreamy and flawless wedding glow that every bride wants on her D-day. But this task ain’t easy! The overwhelming wedding stress can take a toll on your skin, resulting in dullness, acne, dark circles, and several other annoying skin problems that every bride-to-be wants to stay far away from. And believe us when we say that no amount of makeup can compensate for a naturally radiant wedding glow.
Is there a solution? Of course, there is (you see, we don’t call ourselves your beauty BFF for no reason)! Achieving a healthy & bright bridal glow is not impossible as long as you decide to invest some time and effort. In this blog, we are sharing some of the best tips for pre-wedding skin care at home. So, dive right in (cos there’s not even a minute to waste)!
Pre-Wedding Skin Care at Home
We are here to help you ensure that you look your best on your special day. Following the glowing skin tips for brides given below will brighten your skin, and your makeup artist is definitely going to thank you later!
Go Natural with Your Daily Skin Care Routine
Slacking on your daily skincare routine is NOT an option! No matter how busy you are, follow your daily skin care routine to protect your skin against everyday pollution, environmental damage, and stress. And if you’ve been using chemical-based skin care products, stop right away.
Here’s a basic routine for healthy and glowing skin:
Cleanse: Cleansing forms the foundation of your pre-bridal skin care routine at home. It will help unclog pores and keep your skin clean.
We recommend double-cleansing your skin at night. First, you can use an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup. Next, follow up with a hydrating face wash to keep your skin refreshed.
Tone: While most people skip toning, we suggest otherwise. Toning can really level up your pre-wedding skin care routine. It helps tighten your pores and gives your skin a smooth appearance. Use an alcohol-free toner to prevent your skin from drying out.
Apply Serum: While this is not a mandatory step, it can give you a brightening wedding glow. Aroma Magic Vitamin C Face Serum is one of the best skin care products for brides-to-be. It helps reduce hyperpigmentation, repairs sun damage, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens your skin like never before.
Moisturise: Use a moisturiser ideal for your skin type to keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and soft.
Wear Sunscreen: Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day is a must! It is especially important for brides-to-be since their days are all about going out and running all the wedding errands.
Extra Pampering for Bridal Glow
While following a regular pre-wedding skin care routine at home is essential, you must give your skin some extra TLC to achieve an extra-radiant bridal glow.
Exfoliation : Imagine not cleaning your house for a month. The dust will keep building up and leave your home looking all dirty. This is exactly what happens with your skin. While daily cleansing helps remove dirt from the upper layers of the skin, it might not be enough to remove the dust and dirt from the deeper layers. Hence, exfoliation becomes important.
Exfoliating your skin with a natural face scrub helps scrub off dead skin cells. Exfoliate your skin once a week to keep it fresh, radiant, and smooth.
Face Packs : Face packs can be a great addition to your pre-wedding skin care routine. They have some amazing benefits for your skin and are a fun way to unwind and pamper yourself.
Using a clay-based face pack can do wonders for your skin. Clay face packs are the best for a skin detox. They can remove impurities from deeper layers of the skin and give you a healthy complexion. Aroma Magic Brightening Beauty Pack is one of the best pre-wedding skin care products. It is enriched with the goodness of kaolin clay, aloe vera, and neroli essential oil. This natural face pack hydrates the skin, evens out skin tone, removes dead skin cells, and imparts a dazzling glow.
Pre-Bridal Skin Care Tips to Follow 3 Months Before the Wedding
Every bride wants to radiate a natural glow on her wedding day! But you must know that achieving flawless and glowing skin doesn’t happen overnight. So, here are a few tips for pre-wedding skin care at home that you can start following 3 months (or even 6 months) before your D-day:
Facials : Facials are one of the most essential face treatments for bridal glow! You should start getting facials at least 3 months before your wedding. You can go for professional facials at a salon or at-home facials. If you choose the former, ask the beautician to do a patch test of the products they use on your skin. Do not use any harsh chemicals that might irritate the skin. For facials at home, you can use Aroma Magic easy-to-use Bridal Glow Facial Kit.
Your final facial should be a week before your wedding. It gives any potential skin irritation enough time to subside.
Manicure and Pedicure : Taking care of your hands and feet is equally important! After all, so many wedding poses would require you to flaunt your pretty hands and feet.
You can incorporate manicures and pedicures into your pre-wedding skin care routine to keep your hands and feet soft and smooth. Your final mani-pedi sesh should be one to two days before the wedding. This keeps your hands, feet, and nails fresh and beautiful.
Try Yoga : If you already practice yoga, great! If not, start doing it now. Yoga can help you achieve your top two goals as a bride-to-be – flawless skin and stress management.
Focus on doing asanas that improve blood circulation and keep your skin healthy and glowing. Meditative yoga will help reduce your stress and calm your mind, giving you relief from all those pre-wedding jitters.
Hydration : Don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated amidst all the wedding preparations. Drink lots of water and use hydrating skin care products to keep yourself hydrated from the inside out.
Healthy Diet : Along with using pre-wedding skin care products, keeping a check on your diet is essential. Include superfoods rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and other essential nutrients in your diet. Consume food with high water content like melons, strawberries, bell peppers, and broccoli. Eating a balanced diet is vital to achieving that dreamy bridal glow.
Following the pre-wedding skin care tips given above will help you look your best on your wedding day. But don’t forget that the most important thing for you is to relax and get your 7-9 hours of beauty sleep (at least in the last week before your marriage). And of course, the happiest brides are the most beautiful brides. So, leave all the stress behind and cherish every moment leading up to your special day.
