Every bride aspires to look her best on her wedding day. And why should she not dream of looking fantastic? After all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event in her life. However, your prime focus is on bridal makeup and wedding attire. But you do not really focus on your internal well-being and your skin’s actual condition.
Though makeup can camouflage your imperfections on the day of the wedding, the truth remains that no makeup can bring 100% radiance. You need to plan your beauty regime and follow it ritually. However, it’s a time taking process but you must spare some time for yourself to look radiant on your special day. Let's dive into some tips to look gorgeous and beautiful as a bride.
Control Your Stress: No makeup can give you a 100% natural luminance if it does not come from within. Most of the time, we see some brides with expensive wedding outfits and jewelry with high-end makeup. Everything is perfect but the radiance is missing.
Do you know who is the main culprit? “Stress”. Yes, you read it right. And it is quite common. You naturally stress yourself during all the arrangements and plannings but this can ultimately affect your skin, hair, even your entire body. So, you shouldn’t take it for granted. It can lead to skin issues as well as body issues which eventually affect your special day.
You need to learn how to control your stress. Do whatever makes you feel relaxed and de-stressed. You can practice yoga and meditation to de-stress yourself. It is a time-consuming process, so start it 6 months prior to your big day.
Exercise Daily: Everyone knows how effective it is to exercise daily. It may seem difficult for some people who are not into exercise or workouts, but trust me, it has a positive impact on your body as well as on your overall well-being. It keeps you active, stress-free, and also promotes healthy hormones in the body. You must do it at least an hour a day, either in the morning or evening, a time which suits your schedule.
The purpose is to achieve an active body and a relaxed mind. You can practice any kind of workout be it yoga, aerobics, Zumba, dancing, gyming, cycling, running, etc. To get the best outcome, start doing it from now on, whether it’s for weddings or not, you must adopt the habit of regular exercise.
Eat Healthily: Though we all know the benefits of eating healthy food, we don’t really follow it religiously. Your skin should look glowy, flawless, and beautiful at your wedding. For that, you must avoid unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking, and junk food. You must focus on green smoothies, vegetable salad, protein salad, juices, detox waters, etc. You can consult a nutritionist for your diet chart. Drink lots and lots of water, as it helps to clean your body’s free radicals and improves your skin texture. You must start eating a healthy diet 5-6 months prior to your wedding.
Consult A Dermatologist: If you are struggling with any skin problems, you should visit a dermatologist to get his help. You should not experiment with new products on your own. You must consult a skin specialist at least a year before your special day. The most common skin issue is acne, which directly affects your confidence level and can make you stressed out for D-Day. You should follow all the skin regimes prescribed by your doctor.

Follow Some Basic Skincare Regime: Following a proper skincare routine is essential to achieving healthy glowing skin. The basic skincare routine includes:
CTM Routine: The term CTM stands for Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing. These are common skincare regimes that everybody needs to follow in their daily routine. It helps to open out your pores and remove all the dirt, pollution, and dead skin cells. Every bride must follow these basic steps to prepare her skin even if you are tired. A CTM routine gives better results when one follows before heading to bed.
Exfoliate your skin: Exfoliating your skin once a week is compulsory to remove dead skin caused due to outside heat and pollution. It also helps to eliminate the problem of blackheads/whiteheads.
Nourish your skin: It is always important to moisturize your skin properly. Even though your skin texture is oily, you must apply moisturizer to your skin. It helps to plump your skin and improves your skin’s overall fitness. You must nourish your body as well. Try to apply lotion daily after taking a shower. These steps must be followed 6 months prior to your special day to get smooth, supple, and warm skin.
Thumb rule: No experiments here. Indian weddings with decorated hairdos demand a definite length of hair, so leave the haircut for a later time, say on your honeymoon. So it’s ideal to just trim the split ends, not the length.
A bride should also get some hair treatment for smooth, healthy, and shiny hair. You must get at least two hair spas and a hair massage done once a month.
The time it Right: If you are heading towards procedures such as lasers used for pigmentation, to tighten pores and fix tiny broken capillaries-can be done 7-14 days before your wedding. Also, to reduce the risk of redness, irritation, or even an allergic reaction, avoid glycolic peels, dermabrasion, or anything chemical for at least one month prior to your wedding day. Also, have your brows shaped at least 3-4 days before the big day.
Decide Your Wedding Makeup And Hairstyle Beforehand:
It is of utmost importance that you decide your wedding makeup and hairstyle beforehand, it should not be a spontaneous decision on the day of your wedding. You can get ideas about some trendy bridal hairstyles on the internet and you can discuss them with your makeup and hair expert.
You should decide on your bridal makeup artist at least 3 months before the event. You can check out our bridal makeup gallery and you can book your appointments too. You can consult us for your trial sessions, and we will help you out to decide on your makeup and hairstyle for the wedding.
Get A Trial Run: Before your special day, it’s advisable to get a trial run to see how you are looking in your decided look. Is everything perfect as per your desire? Make sure you take a digital picture to really see how you look. Test beauty products whether they suit your skin type or not as the products which suit other people may not work for you. You wouldn't like to find out the morning of your wedding that you're allergic to that luscious gold gloss!
Be assured the salon uses waterproof eye makeup. Most brides cry at their weddings. Even if you don't think you're the crying variety, with so many waterproof products out there, why take a chance?
Happiness is the key to looking your best: Last but not least, there will be a lot of things at your wedding which will not happen your way, but that doesn’t mean that you will stress yourself out for them, instead enjoy the thing that you are going to marry the man you have always desired to!! Remember, it’s your day enjoying it completely and fully!!
Cheers For Your Wedding :) :)
