Skin Care Tips for the Bride-to-Be

By  | 

Every bride wants to glow from her head to her toe on her wedding day. Of primary importance is having a glowing skin. There are many things which can help a bride achieve soft, supple and radiant skin on her D-day.

The first thing to do is to identify your problem areas. If you have acne, psoriasis or other skin conditions, it is best to visit a dermatologist who can guide you in getting rid of these. If you are willing to go the extra mile, laser treatment options, microdermabrasion and glycolic peels etc can help in these areas too.rakheecouk


At home too, you can do several things to achieve that flawless look. Start by drinking loads of water. In fact; many dermatologists recommend drinking nearly 3 liters of water; this can help you get rid of dryness, blackheads and enlarged pores etc.

You also need to eat right. If you gorge on oily and fried foods, that is certainly not going to help your skin. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Tomatoes, olives, papaya, berries, apples and oranges are some fruits which are ideal for snacking in between meal times and are also good for your skin. Many skin care experts believe in dried fruits too: dried figs, plums, prunes, nuts (almonds, walnuts and cashew), raisins, etc are also great snacking options which can help curb hunger pangs and are also good for overall health.

Thirdly, you must get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Weddings can be stressful, but try some early morning yoga and meditation to calm those thoughts. A few deep breathing exercises can also help you relax. Physical Exercise is also important and you must try to engage in at least 30 to 40 minutes of jogging, walking etc.


Apply sun block each time you go out. Most dermatologists recommend applying one with SPF 30 or above. Identify your skin type: oily, dry or combination and opt for good products recommended for them.

It is best not to go in for any strange facials or pre-bridal skin treatments no matter how promising they sound. If needed, however, you can get them done 2 months prior to the wedding date, as many of these are likely to cause breakouts.   Always choose reputed salons or professionals for getting such treatments done.

Glowing skin for your D-day is not a dream, but a reality, provided you follow these tried and tested methods!
