By  | 

Most brides would agree on one thing: they are all looking for simple solutions to look great in those close-up shots. In this article, we will help you discover 10 perfect pick-me-up secrets to look ravishing in those wedding photos.

1. Vitamin E and Aloe Vera for the bridal glow

For an instant glow, mix the oil from Vitamin E caplets with some Aloe Vera extract. If you have sweet almond oil, add in a few drops of that as well. Massage the mixture into the skin and let it remain for 15 minutes. Next, rub a lemon slice on the skin and rinse off with cool water. Your face will glow all day!

2. Have puffy eyes? Use chamomile

Brew some chamomile tea and apply the bags to your eyes for 10 minutes. You can also use cucumber slices or potato juice. Cool damp green tea bags can also be left on the eyes for 15 minutes. These remedies work wonders on dark circles too.

3. Keep zits under control with salicylic acid

Talk to a dermatologist who can prescribe a gentle salicylic acid-based faced wash for keeping your zits under control. You can also use a witch hazel toner post cleansing since it contains natural salicytate compounds. If you have active pimples, go for Clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide creams to dry them up overnight.

4. Change the routine a bit

If what you are doing now is not working for your skin, you might want to change things a bit. Apart from cleansing, toning and moisturizing, exfoliate the skin once a week using a gentle scrub. Deeply cleanse your skin with the right products and also use a good sunscreen with SPF 30. At night, use a moisturizing serum containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, retinol, green tea, pomegranate etc.

5. KISS!

By KISS, we mean ‘Keep It Simple, Simple’. Choose products that suit you instead of going for trends. When you go for a bridal consultation, make sure you specify that you want colors that suit your complexion instead of going for an overly made up look with unflattering shades.  Simple nude makeup is not only trendy- it highlights your best features and makes you look like you.

6. Vaseline for thicker eyelashes

Did you know that you can use Vaseline on your eyelashes to make them look thicker and longer? Take a small amount in between your thumb and index finger and rub the excess off. Now apply the left over to the eyelashes and voila! You will have thicker, darker eyelashes all day long!

7. Use a seaweed pack before applying makeup

A seaweed pack closes the pores and also hydrates and nourishes the skin, making it glow. Leave the pack on for about 15 minutes to let it works its magic. Then wipe it off with a tissue, leaving a residue on the skin which acts as a primer and protects your skin from makeup .

8. Got hair fall? Use garlic!

If you have excess hair fall, apply the paste of garlic with water, leaving it on the hair and scalp overnight. Wash it off with a mild herbal shampoo the next morning. Also use fenugreek seeds (methi) and mustard powder with some coconut oil to massage the hair once a week.

9. Treat brittle nails with vitamin E

Got easily breakable, brittle nails? Use a hand cream containing vitamin E to soften cuticles and keep hands soft. Vitamin E locks in the moisture and nourishes the weak nails.

10. Want some natural curls in the hair? Braid it!

Braids are easy to do and you can make them on slightly damp hair at night time. Keep the braid overnight to get curly hair the next morning.
