Each bride wants to have flawless skin. Also, it makes it easier for the makeup artist to put on the right products. But you will need to take extra care of your skin to achieve that radiance.
Here we are sharing the best pre-wedding skincare routine for you. Take a look…..
1. Have an exercise routine
To get the beautiful skin, you will need to put in the extra effort. The first thing that you need to incorporate in your life is – an exercise routine. You can indulge in anything from yoga to cycling to swimming. Anything that you like. Doing exercise releases stress and help in creating happy hormones, which impacts your mood positively. Exercising will not only help you have brightened skin but also you will end up losing those extra pounds.
2. Practice meditation
Believe it or not, practicing meditation for ten minutes can impact your life hugely. You can do any form of meditation of your choice, from mindfulness to focusing the mind on a particular object or on your breath. Meditation calms your mind and helps retain energy.
3. Practice Prāṇāyāma
Performing Prāṇāyāma is very good for one’s overall health and skin. It is an art of conscious breathing, which helps you release any anxiety or stress and strengthen your energy positively. You can perform Anulom Vilom or Alternate Nostril Breathing Exercise, Kapalbhati Pranayama, and Bhramari Pranayama. These three pranayama techniques will detoxify your body and help you have a calm mind.
4. Drink a lot of water
Water is a great cleansing agent. Water detoxifies the body; it cleanses the system and helps you get clearer skin. The best way to have beautiful skin is to drink a lot of water, leading to your wedding. Most makeup artists recommend bride-to-be to start drinking at least three liters of water daily. Doing so will help you have a natural glow and radiance to the face.
5. Keep it simple, minimal, and to the point
When we say bridal skincare routine, most brides start to spend money on costly skincare products, which is not required. All you have to do is – keep it simple, minimal, and to the point. Trying ten different things won’t help you get clearer skin; keep that in mind. Also, it may be harmful to try different products for the sake of looking beautiful.
6. Start getting regular body massages
Body massage is a significant part of your pre-wedding skincare routine. It can help you rejuvenate and de-stress yourself. Start getting regular body massages at least 6 months before your wedding. Make sure you get massages with essential oils and treatment oils. Oil massage treats all skin problems such as tanning, hyperpigmentation, etc. Oil massages are a great way to get complete nourishment and deep relaxation. Besides,
7. Eat healthy
No matter how expensive products you use for your skin, everything is useless if you tend to eat unhealthy. Unhealthy eating habits can deteriorate your skin badly. No amount of cream can help you get rid of that. So, it is important to eat a healthy and nutritious diet leading to your wedding and otherwise also. Healthy food provides you good skin and complete nourishment.

Eating Satwik food can be really helpful. Satwik food increases satva in the body, which reflects in your skin. Eating junk food, non-vegetarian food, etc. can increase tamas, which is not good. Follow a balanced diet that consists of fruits, green vegetables, fiber, and protein to have beautiful skin.
8. Consume more fluid
Consuming fluid, like juices, coconut water, lime water, etc. can also help you get clearer skin. Most of these fluids are rich in antioxidants that help you have a better skin tone and natural glow. Most brides start taking fluids before their wedding in order to get beautiful skin.
9. Don’t go for crash diets
Going on crash diets leading to your wedding can be really dangerous. Some brides actually try these stunts in order to get fit into their wedding outfit. This is not at all wise, trust me. Dieting may help you lose those extra pounds, but remember it has negative impacts. Also, every person’s body reacts differently to different weight loss methods. The safest method to lose weight and maintain good skin is yoga. Yoga is therapeutic; it is a perfect way to have beautiful skin, lose weight, calm mind, etc. It provides you benefits at all levels, from physical to emotional and mental.
10. Start getting facials
Start getting facials 6 months before your wedding. Facials actually prepare your skin for bridal makeup. It provides deep cleansing and hydration to your skin. Usually, this is included in the bridal package. Most parlors provide you with complete packages that include facials, body cleaning, massages, bridal makeup, etc. Make sure your salon professional do a patch test before using the products on your face. If you have any skin related problem or any allergy, let the professional know in advance. Also, it will help them to get the best products for you.
11. Use sunscreen while going out
Do not miss to apply sunscreen while going out. It is very, really, very important. Of course, tanned skin would be the last thing that you would want at your wedding. Make sure you buy good quality sunscreen lotion with at least 35+ SPF. Applying sunscreen will help you avoid harmful UV rays affecting your skin.
12. Follow CTM
Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing is the key to have wonderful skin. Cleansing will help your skin breathe, toning will tighten it, and moisturizing will make your skin soft and supple. Following CTM on a regular basis can aid you to get beautiful skin. You don’t need to spend money on expensive products; you can use natural ingredients like raw milk for cleansing, rose water for toning, etc. Follow the CTM routine twice a day, morning, and night. Don’t miss it even when you are very busy or tired. Sleeping with makeup on your skin can affect your skin adversely.
13. Sound sleep
I can’t stress enough on this point. I know wedding preparation is no easy task. But to get sound sleep is very important. The last thing that you would want around your wedding day is dark circles. So, it is advised to get at least 7 – 8 hours’ sleep every night.
Exfoliating is a great way to get rid of dead skin. Make it a habit of exfoliating your skin once a week. You can use natural products like sugar or coffee to exfoliate at home. Make sure you do not overdo it and apply gentle pressure. Getting harsh while exfoliating can cause you more harm than any good. Besides, home remedies, you can also try Ayurvedic remedies.
15. Learn to manage stress
Stress can be harmful; it can cause skin breakouts and make you look dull on your D Day. So it is better to take steps to manage your stress. You can opt for body massages, spa, meditation, ayurvedic treatments, etc. to keep your stress at bay.
16. Spend time with your loved ones
This may sound a bit weird here, but trust spending time with the people you love can be helpful. When you are with people you love, you feel happy, which affects your body and mind. Remember that a happy body lives a happy mind. And a happy mind creates positive situations for one.
17. Spend time with your significant other
Don’t wait for the final day to see your partner; in fact, take some time off from your busy schedule to meet your partner. Spend a day or two together; you can go for a short trip or a date night before your wedding. It will help you have a good time, create memories, rejuvenate yourself, develop a bond. All these together make you happy and affect your mind positively. When you feel good, you automatically shine no matter what.
18. Stay happy
Last but not least, stay happy. Staying happy is indispensable. No amount of makeup can hide your stress, but if you are happy within, you can rock the party even without makeup. So focus on inner happiness, do things that make you happy and contented. Think positive, envision your day, and plan things to make your wedding beautiful and memorable. Don’t pressurize yourself for tiny things; learn to avoid whatever is not in your hand.
