Date Published: Oct 11, 2013

For brides, her wedding day will be something she'll look forward to. This momentous event would mark the start of a new chapter in her life — this time, with her husband. Nonetheless, it is just understandable to take a couple of measures to savour this occasion. Looking beautiful is indeed one of those.

Pre-wedding skin care is something very important for Indian brides as well. Having a clear skin, for them, is like a canvas — a clean slate that provides a medium for creating art. Indian bridal make-up is nonetheless elaborate, so it is essential to care of the skin months before the big day.

For your upcoming wedding, here's a list of the few things you can do to reveal a radiant glow as early as now:

Live Healthily

Every bride wants to look gorgeous on her wedding day. In this case, staying up late at night or eating fast food won't help. Aside from gaining weight, you might suffer from bad breakouts and dark undereye circles. So, you have to follow a good diet regimen and get enough sleep every day at least 3 months before the wedding.

Take Your Skin Care Regimen to the Next Level

The 3-step daily skin care regimen may not be enough to prepare weeks before the wedding. You might want to visit beauty spas and skin centres for proper assessment of your skin type. Also, consider getting facial treatments once in a while. This would help exfoliate your skin, thus removing dead skin cells and revealing a healthy glow.

Try Home-made Facial Scrubs

One of India's favourite home-made skin care treatment is the ubtan. In India, mothers would use this as facial scrub on their children from the moment they are born. Ubtan has been a favourite skin treatment since the ancient times by Indian women royalties. To make it, you need besan, haldi, milk, lemon, honey, choker and rose water.

Wear Sunscreen When Going Out

Ample amount of sunlight is good for the skin. These days, however, prolonged exposure to the sun is detrimental. Aside from sunburn, the skin might be susceptible to wrinkles and dark spots under extreme heat. Avoid having an uneven skin tone days before the wedding by applying sun-protective lotions and moisturisers early on.

Follow these tried-and-tested tips, and you'll be dazzling like an Indian princess in your wedding. Best wishes!
