It is also the time when all eyes will be on you and people will notice everything from our dress to makeup and even your skin. Therefore, you must make sure to look your best during your wedding.

So, how can a bride, whose one wish is to look flawless on her wedding day, steer clear of all these problems? Well, here are some bridal skin care tips that can not only give you clear skin but also help you look fresh all day long:
Top 5 Bridal Skin Care Tips
Drinking enough water is perhaps the most important thing to do all summer, wedding or not. However, it cannot be denied that weddings are a very busy time where one is all caught up making plans and last-minute preparations, as a result of which, you can forget to drink water. This can cause dehydration and also result in the skin losing its plumpness or elasticity, causing blemishes or dry patches. In order to avoid this from happening, make sure to drink enough water.
Pro tip: Knowing that you can get caught up in wedding festivities, assign someone who will remind you to drink water or will hand you a bottle every few hours to keep up your hydration. Start eating fruits like watermelon and green vegetables that will help hydrate the body as well.
The sun tends to dry out the skin by stripping it of all its natural oils, which only urges your glands to produce more oil causing oily skin during summers. This is a sign that your skin needs to replenish on added moisturization for hydration to the skin. The change in humidity and rise in temperatures also creates a layer of sweat and oils that can cause unnecessary breakouts and moisturizing your skin is a way to prevent them.
Pro tip: If you are planning a summer wedding or wedding in the outdoors, start including moisturizers in your pre bridal skin care routine. Keep a face mist handy on your wedding day, in case your skin needs a boost of instant hydration. This will not mess with your makeup and will also make you feel rejuvenated.
Wearing a lot of makeup, leading to your wedding day can cause some acne flare ups on your skin. Therefore, it’s very important to have a pre bridal skin care routine that includes a cleansing ritual in order to avoid any unnecessary surprises on the “D-day”. It’s also important to exfoliate the dead and dry skin cells from your skin, since summer months tend to generate more oil on the face that can lead to clogged pores, which are the leading cause for pimples and acne.
Pro tip: Use lactic acid or glycolic acid toners to gently exfoliate the top layer of the skin, as they help in tightening the pores. Follow a detailed morning bridal skin care routine that emphasizes on double cleansing to help your skin breathe better.
Weddings also mean a lot of late nights and sun exposure while out shopping. It’s easy to forget about the small things, like taking care of your dark circles or lips amidst this busy schedule. Eye creams help to nourish the skin, fight puffiness and brighten the eyes. Lip balms help when your lips get chaffy, the probability of which is high during the days leading to the wedding, when you have lipstick on your mouth 24*7.
Pro tip: Include an eye cream in your wedding skin care routine and keep a lip balm handy. Use eye creams at night and use lip balms that have SPF to protect your lips from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Some people think it’s trivial to have a bridal skincare routine, but weddings mean more stress and stress means acne and pimples. In such a scenario, managing stress by organizing your wedding tasks appropriately won’t give your skin any reason for sudden breakouts. Stress can make your skin look dull and no one should have dull looking skin on their wedding day.
Pro tip: Stop binge eating and start eating healthy, thinking positive thoughts and trying massages and facials are ways to combat stress before your wedding. Having an in-depth skin care before wedding day can also help in managing any last signs of wedding stress. On your wedding day, just try to enjoy every moment and let go of the stress.
