The fascinating lehenga. Check. Those gorgeous shoes. Check. Top-of-the-line cosmetics. Check. Oh the breathtaking jewellery. Check. With only a couple of months to go, your wedding checklist must be complete. With all the planning, shopping, discussing and arguing, and even losing your temper at times, you probably wouldn’t have had time to consider the most important aspect - your bridal looks.
Of course, you are going to look stunning because you have prepared up to the par. But, what if a pimple sprouts up just days before your wedding or all these hectic preparations end up squeezing out all the glow from your ever radiant skin. Some skin problems don’t have a quick fix. Therefore, you must start taking care of skin 2-3 months prior to the Big Day. This will help you look your gorgeous best on the most special day of your life.
The Everyday Routine
Eat healthy, drink loads of water and get proper sleep. Say no to greasy and junk food and eat as many fruits as possible. Consume berries on a regular basis as they are packed with antioxidants. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin is an everyday thing - do not skip the routine even for a single day. Go for morning walks or perform yoga as it will not only keep you fit, but make your skin radiant as well.
If you get a facial done frequently, just two sessions - one 4-5 days before the wedding and another a month prior to that - will do. But if you have never had a facial, you should consult a professional beautician 3 months before the big day. S/he will recommend you facial sessions as per your skin type and requirements.
Don't panic if you notice puffiness and dark circles around your eyes. It's commonly seen in every bride-to-be because of the hectic schedule. Place cucumber slices and used tea bags alternatively over your eyes every evening. Don't rub your eyes and when you are removing the eye makeup, use a mild water-soluble eye makeup remover. Apply a good eye cream daily before hitting the bed and get proper sleep.
Million Dollar Smile
Many brides-to-be choose to whiten their teeth especially for the wedding so as to look perfect. Moreover, you can also visit a dentist to get your teeth cleaned professionally, so that you can smile during all your wedding functions with more confidence and pride.
The Perfect Body
Most of your body will be covered in your wedding dress and jewelry on your wedding day. But after the Big Day, comes the Big Night and you would want to be in the perfect shape for it. Moreover, after the wedding comes the honeymoon, and you would want to look and feel your best, not just for your spouse, but for yourself too! So exfoliate your skin once a week and focus especially on the feet, knees and elbows. Apply a good moisturizer every day.
That Dramatic Hairdo
Brides usually want to toy with the idea of having a totally different hairdo on their wedding day. Be it layers, bangs, curls, waves, updos, highlights, colors or even extensions; just be sure to go for an early trial. Having new hair styles tried out every few days before the wedding will help you determine whether the style suits you. Apart from the new look, you should also pay more attention to the health and nourishment of your hair. A deep conditioning treatment every week will help rejuvenate your hair, make it lustrous, and give it added bounce.
As the day of wedding approaches, take extra care of your looks. Remember that to look your most beautiful, you need to work hard and take small steps, one at a time. It\'s a happy occasion so don\'t allow stress to rule your life during the pre-wedding days, instead let the happiness and excitement of starting a whole new journey be your beacon and feel the difference in your beauty and health!
