When it comes to bridal beauty treatments, one of the most confusing tasks can be choosing the right facial. The bridal facial menus at spas and salons can be pretty confusing too and most brides-to-be find it difficult to understand which one will suit their skin type. After all, we all want to ensure making the right choice. In the end, one is left with no choice but to go with the recommendation of the salon staff blindly. That’s like putting one’s skincare-an important aspect of bridal beauty- in the hands of a stranger. You certainly don’t want to take this risk. Hence, it is imperative to know how to choose the right facial. In this simple step-by-step guide, we will help you do just that!

Tips to Choose the Right Bridal Facial for Your Skin Type

Know Your Skin Type

Before we talk about how to choose the right facial, let’s understand the basics of different skin types.

There are 4 basic skin types-

  • Oily skin
  • Dry skin
  • Normal skin
  • Combination skin

So, how to know what skin type you have? Take this small test and you will know your skin type in a second.

As you get up in the morning, check whether your skin feels oily or dry or a bit of both.

  • If you feel like oil is oozing out from every inch of your face, you have oily skin.
  • If your face feels rather dry and flaky like winter even in summer days, you have dry skin.
  • If it feels normal i.e. soft and supple, you have normal skin.
  • And if the T section (the temple, nose and chin area) feels oily, but the cheeks feel dry then you have combination skin.

Next comes understanding the 4 steps of facial – Cleansing, Scrubbing, Massage and Mask.

Bridal Facial for Oily Skin

Oily skin is the most difficult skin type to deal with as it’s mostly acne-prone and tends to be pretty sensitive. Therefore, using the right type of products can save you from a lot of skin troubles. Use deep cleansing lotion to get rid of excess oil and open the blocked pores. Use a natural or herbal scrub to exfoliate the skin and then use a mild cream to massage the face and neck. Choose a mud mask or clay mask as these masks tend to absorb the oil.

Bridal Facial for Dry Skin

Contrary to the popular belief, your dry skin needs special care too as dry skin in winter can be a terrible combination. So, pick a facial that will nourish and moisturize your skin bringing back its softness. Avoid harsh scrubs at any cost. Try oxygen facials or fruit facials as these help the skin remain hydrated.

Bridal Facial for Normal Skin

Brides with normal skin types are truly blessed. From intense to mild, you can pick a suitable one for your skin without worrying much. Use honey, cream or fruit based facial for your normal skin just to moisturize it well. To get a radiant glow, go for gold facial.

Facial for Combination Skin

Combination skin also requires minimum care to thrive. A light therapy bridal facial can do wonders to your combination skin; it can make the skin tone even and tighten up open pores.
