5 Affordable Beauty Tips For Brides!

By  | 

If you thought that looking beautiful on your wedding day would mean setting aside thousands of rupees in order to get that perfect glow, let us tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong. There are so many little steps you can take to ensure that your skin remains healthy and gorgeous on the day when it matters the most:

Exfoliation

This is the easiest and most affordable of all beauty tips. All you need to do is to dab a small amount of apricot scrub on your face at least twice a week and rub it on your skin in gentle circular motions. This will get rid of all dead skin cells and will reveal radiant skin underneath. In fact, why not exfoliate your whole body too? You could also use a coarse scrub made of sugar and honey too.

Eat Healthy

No, we aren’t saying that you shouldn’t enjoy a pizza now and then, but what you eat is going to definitely show up on your face. Stay away from food that cause allergies or which you haven’t tried before and go with wholesome fruits, lean meat and steamed veggies instead. Adding raw fibre rich veggies to your diet at least three times a week ensures that bulky toxins in the digestive system are thoroughly cleaned out. Stay away from sugar as much as you can- too much of it can ruin your health (think diabetes!) and can also cause extreme acne breakouts.

Workout Regularly

What does exercise have to do with looking good? If skin experts are to be believed, working out is half the secret to glowing skin. Here’s why- as you sweat, your skin is breathing and your blood vessels work extra hard to pump blood. Not only do you give your internal system a great workout, but your skin gets rid of toxins too. Make exercise a regular habit and you’ll gain a fit body in no time as well. You don’t have to sign up for an expensive gym membership to look good. Go for brisk walks in your neighbourhood, take the stairs instead of the lift, try office exercises which can be done while seated; and you’ll see the results in no time.

Stay Hydrated

Most of us reach out for a glass of water only when we feel thirsty and yet feeling thirst itself is a sign of dehydration. If you really can’t manage 8 glasses of water a day, try having at least 5. Water is an important component needed for so many body functions and without it, our system would have a tough time doing its work properly. So, that’s why you need to put this affordable beauty tip into practice as soon as you can.

Cleanse- Tone- Moisturize

You’ve probably heard a lot about this affordable beauty tip but you’ve never really given it a serious thought. It’s important never to go to sleep with makeup on and the best way to ensure that your skin is thoroughly clean from inside out is to follow a strict cleansing, toning and moisturising routine. This ensures that every little bit of dirt is out and allows your skin to breathe at night.
