Glow Guide For Brides
Get Glowing Skin:Your skin care needs to get a prime focus during this phase. more often than not, you will find your skin looking either dull or excessively oily and unevenly toned and your skin also breaks out in pimples. Even if you have been neglecting it so far, start a rigorous skincare regime at least a month before your wedding. Skin Therapists suggests at least two professional facials during this period supplemented by at-home treatments. You can ask your beauty therapist to suggest a skincare regime and list out the right products for use at home beforehand. In case you notice a severe breakout, it's best to seek professional help at this time. Avoid bleaching your skin. Your last bleach should be about two weeks before the date. Get your facial two days before the wedding, so that in case of any allergic reactions it can be handles with the right remedies. A herbal or aroma facial is ideal and gentle for a bride. Go for Skin enhancement treatments only after a consultation session with a cosmetologist, where, you're taken through a personalised skin analysis to determine the methods used to achieve the perfect bridal glow. On the wedding day just do a face and neck massage with almond oil, and a few relevant essential oils. Then we apply a therapeutic sandalwood and turmeric mask for that extra glow, followed by toning and conditioning, and last but not the least, moisture infusion and sun protection. Once the skin is primed, go for your makeup. If you've followed a good beauty and health regime for a month, your skin will glow and you may be able to ditch foundation altogether and be the bright bride naturally.
