Bridal Skincare Dos And Donts - Wedding Affair

Hey Gorgeous Brides-to-be! Ready to rock that aisle and shine like the star you are? However, the days leading up to the marriage can be very stressful and tiring, and all this stress can affect your skin, hair, and overall health. But don’t you worry, I’m here to help you out, I have jolted down bridal skincare dos and don’ts so you can glow, sparkle, and slay on your big day.

The Dos

1. Hydrate!!!

Hydrate

I can’t stress on it more, sip that water like it’s your favourite cocktail. Hydration is your skin’s BFF, and trust me, it’s the secret potion for that natural bridal glow. Make sure you are consuming enough water to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and plump.

2. Early Bird Gets the Flawless Skin

Early Bird Gets The Flawless Skin

When it comes to your skin, the results can take time to show up, hence start your skincare routine early – no last-minute magic tricks here. Consistency is the name of the game. Give those products time to work their wonders, and start your bridal skincare ritual at least 4 months prior to your big day.

3. Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen

Sunscreen

This is another aspect of skincare that is the most crucial, sunscreen is your superhero against dark spots, wrinkles, and all things evil. Make it your daily armour, and your skin will thank you – now and forever. Make sure the sunscreen that you have chosen has at least SPF-30.

4. Chill with the DIY Masks

Chill With The DIY Masks

It is time for you to use your grandma’s secret skincare potions, however don’t go overboard with it, DIY masks can be fun, but be careful not to go overboard. Your skin might not love that concoction of kitchen ingredients as much as your favourite beauty blogger claims.

5. Sleep Like It’s Your Job Too

Sleep Like A Toddler

I always say that there is a reason why sleeping beauty is a beauty, your Beauty sleep is legit. Aim for those 8 hours – it’s like a magic reset button for your skin. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to catch some Zs?

6. Cleanse

Cleanse

Are you sleeping with your makeup on? Girl, you need to stop! and use a gentle cleanser for your skin type. Cleanse your face gently – no need to turn it into a battlefield. Over-cleansing can strip your skin of its natural oils, and we’re all about balance, not chaos.

7. Be BFFs with Vitamin C

Vitamin C

 Vitamin C is like a superhero cape for your skin. Incorporate it into your routine, and watch those dark spots fade away. And not just use it topically but incorporate food that is rich in vitamin-c such as oranges, lemons, and various other fruits, this will ensure that you glow from the inside.

The Don’ts

1. Don’t Pick at Your Face

Don't Pick At Your Face

Hands off! Picking at your face is a one-way ticket to breakout city. I know it can be really tricky to avoid picking at those pesky acne but I would strictly suggest you to leave the extracting to the professionals – your future self will thank you.

2. Don’t Overdo the Exfoliation

Don't Overdo The Exfoliation

Though exfoliation is fantastic, but too much of a good thing can be bad. Exfoliation helps to get rid of the dead skin and hence helps to make skin smooth and clean but don’t go all in – a couple of times a week is the sweet spot for that smooth canvas.

3. Don’t Try New Products Last Minute

Don't Try New Skin Products Last Minute

Your wedding day is not the time to test-drive a new skincare product. Stick to what you know works for you, so there are no surprise guests (like unexpected breakouts).

4. Skip the Late-Night Junk Food

Skip The Late Night Junk

Yes, it’s time we accept that we are guilty for grabbing a late night snack. Late-night snack attacks are real, but try to resist the junk food temptation. Your skin loves nutrients, not that extra bag of chips and chocolates.

5. Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Avoid Harsh Skin Products

The skin on your face is the most sensitive and harsh chemicals are not your skin’s friends. Opt for gentle, nourishing products, and your skin will respond with a happy dance.

So there you have it, lovelies – the bridal skincare 101. Take care of that beautiful canvas of yours, and watch yourself glow as you step into forever. Cheers to radiant, flawless skin and the happiest day of your life!
