Essential Skincare Ingredients for Winter Brides: We all know that wedding preparation takes almost a year and as a bride, you still feel you’re missing out on something or other. Amidst the stress, excitement, constant rush of adrenaline, and sleepless nights, your skin suffers more than ever. 

Now we can’t take that overwhelming feeling out of a wedding, but we can make sure your skin is smooth, plump, and hydrated so you glow brighter than stars on your wedding day. Especially, if you’re planning a winter wedding, you might need a helping hand to fight the dryness that the chilly weather brings.

Here are a few ingredients that you should look for in your skincare products

Ceramides are the golden key to unlock a hydrating skin. So, we all know our upper most layer of skin loses water and moisture all the time, thereby, making the skin look dull. Ceramides help to prevent that by locking the moisture onto the skin. You can use ceramides alone, but they work at their best with HA or Hyaluronic acid. HA helps to give that extra glow and plump texture, giving the skin a dewy look. 

It is of the utmost importance, if you’re aiming for that no-makeup effortless look for your wedding.

Naicinamide benefits

Niacinamide is your best friend while tackling pollution, humid weather and toxins that you inevitably encounter during your wedding shopping. It is a form of Vitamin B that helps to reduce inflammation, pores, and protects your skin from ultraviolet rays. Niacinamide is also used to help prevent acne by enhancing your general skin health. 

The fact that niacinamide also helps to keep your skin firm and healthy is a reason to always keep it in your skincare regime even after your wedding.

Retinol is all the rage right now and rightly so, it deserves a place in the bride’s skincare vanity. It is, primarily, Vitamin A, that has been proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It might be a one stop resolution to every woman who said- “I wish my skin remains youthful forever.”

A pea sized amount of retinol is all that is needed for you to start with. You can increase the amount by a bit as you become regular. As amusing as this ingredient is, you need to thoroughly moisture your skin and use sunscreen as retinol is bound to make your skin photosensitive. 

There are many brands that have come up with retinol creams of varying percentages. If you’re using it for the first time you can just go for a medicated tretinoin ointment. 

Vitamin C

Having Vitamin C in your skincare regime is crucial. Now, you can eat oranges and other ascorbic acid fruits and vegetables, but the results will take some time. And patience was never our strongest suit. That’s where Vitamin C serums come into play. They help to brighten the skin in a short span of time, making it easier for wedding makeup to seamlessly layer on a bride’s face. And the best part is, it suits almost every skin type!

You can use it in the form of serum, moisturizer or a hydrating morning spray to look fresh on your big day!

You can find numerous brands when you look for skincare products, but you need to remember to look at the ingredients and decide which ones suit you the best. Don’t experiment with new skincare products, unless you’re sure about them, just a few days before your big day. And no matter, how amazing these ingredients can be, a good night’s sleep and a healthy diet goes a long way in giving you the natural glow. After all, there is a reason why beauty sleep was named so!
