Wedding Prep: Top 3 Skincare Essentials

Are you all set to say your vows? Congratulations! A wedding comprises a lot of duties and preparations, among which taking care of the bride’s skin is of the utmost importance. To glow on your wedding day and appear stunning in your wedding photoshoot, your skin must look healthy. While a good diet is essential, skin care plays an equally major role.

Continue reading this piece to find out what basic skincare you must opt for, including SPF and serums.


Never Skip Sunscreen

Beginning with the basics: Sunscreen and Sunblock. Using either as a regular part of your skincare routine is the key to ensuring your skin doesn’t suffer damage from sun damage.  UV rays and long exposure to the sun doesn’t only increase melanin production or tan your skin—it’s actually harmful and can cause cancer.

So, whenever you decide to step out for a pre-wedding shopping spree, slather yourself in sunscreen. This way, you’re not only prepping your skin for your wedding, but also preventing pre-aging.


Water is Your Best Friend

And we’re not talking about just drinking it, girlies. We’re asking you to invest in some hydraulic acid serum and regular hydra facials. Believe it when we say this that hydration is the key to making your skin look plump on your wedding day.

Plump skin means makeup will sit nicely on your skin, and the freshness will add a natural glow to it. Remember, the plumper your skin, the better your glow—so, don’t forget to moisturize.

Serums Are Life Changing

This is no exaggeration, trust us! Whether its Niacinamide drops that you opt for, or Alpha Arbutin, serums will dramatically change your skin for the better. Make them an essential part of your skincare routine, and see how their work their magic.

If you’re unsure about where to begin, or which serums suit your skin, use a regimen builder to find out. Begin your day with SPF and rose water; end it with your favorite serum and moisturizer.


Other Tips for Glowing Skin

  • Invest in a guashatool, and use it on your face twice a day to minimize puffiness.
  • Avoid oily and sugar-rich foods.
  • Increase your water intake.
  • Remove every last particle of makeup before going to bed.
