6 skincare tips for brides to swear by for naturally glowing skin!
Give your skin the bridal glow it deserves with these beauty tips
The wedding season is right around the corner and brides are in a frenzy to get glowing skin while juggling an array of tasks. In today’s world where chemicals are found aplenty in the environment, the new-age bride is veering towards solutions that are naturally based when it comes to their skin and health.
Embracing the natural route may take some time to yield results but ensures that your skin retains and amplifies its natural glow in a gentle manner by protecting the skin barrier. And, to give your skincare routine a leg-up during the months that lead up to the big day, we’ve curated a list of effective tips, that if followed with discipline, will give you permanent results while impacting your overall health in a positive manner!
Keep yourself hydrated
There’s a good reason why you’ve heard this statement countless times. Hydration is key when it comes to healthy skin. Not only does it leave your skin supple but it also keeps acne at bay by keeping your body temperature under check. Plus, it also steers you away from chapped lips and ensures you are fresh as a daisy throughout the day. Drinking adequate water along with using a paraben-free and toxin-free moisturizer is essential for overall hydration.
Include more fruits and veggies in your diet
Glowing skin comes from within. And, to get that extra dose of glow, abstain from foods that contain too much sugar or oil. While a bar of chocolate may tamp down the stress, it may also cause breakouts. Instead, opt for healthier, lighter options like fruits or salads that improve your gut-health which, in turn, is reflected on your skin.
Use SPF religiously
Sun damage can wreak havoc on your skin causing hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and rough texture. A minimum SPF 30 sunscreen is recommended before you step outdoors. And, while one cannot go completely natural when it comes to sunscreen, we’d suggest choosing a formula that is paraben-free and toxin-free.
Opt for natural skincare products
The skincare market at the moment is flooded with products that promise you that ‘extra’ bit of glow. So how does one opt for a safe yet effective product? The answer can be found in reading the ingredient list. Look out for silicones, minerals, parabens and dyes that are common culprits that can harm your skin. Invest your time and money in brands that are known for their all-natural products. Mamaearth is a brand that harnesses the power of natural ingredients in its products. Their Ubtan Facewash and Face Pack, in fact, aces at all fronts to give that beautiful bridal glow. With traditional ingredients like turmeric and saffron, these products are perfect for a pre-bridal routine. Plus, the Ubtan Face Mask can also double up as a safe alternative to impure store-bought turmeric that is commonly used during the haldi event.
Amp up your exercise routine
Exercising is a sure-shot way to give your skin health a leg up. And, even if you’re a regular patron at the nearest gym or hit the tracks at every opportunity, it’s best to walk that extra mile during the days leading up to the wedding. Apart from keeping bloating under check, it will also increase your blood circulation and release endorphins that reduce skin inflammation.
Add body care to your skincare routine
Wedding celebrations call for low-cut cholis, backless blouses and sleeveless indo-western gowns. And, during times like these, a dedicated body care routine can make a world of difference. Exfoliation and moisturisation after a shower are key. However, if you wish to go a step further – raid your pantry for homemade masks that you can apply to your face as well as your body! Ingredients like, besan, saffron, yoghurt and honey are game changers. But if you’re short on time, then a natural face pack, like, Mamaearth’s Ubtan Face Mask can work the same wonders. Adding a natural body soap, like Mamaearth’s Ubtan Nourishing Bathing Soap, into the routine makes your bathing experience a rejuvenating one!
Not just limiting itself to providing to-be brides and their loved ones a range of affordable yet effective skincare, Mamaearth also adds to the joy with their #ShaadiWalaGlow contest that celebrates the joy of a bride as she takes the plunge into marital bliss.
