It almost seems as if everybody is getting married this year. And as happy as you are for them, you want your skin and your personality to shine. Bring on your A-game to all these weddings, take good–NO, smart care of your skin.
Follow these tips and you’re bound to turn a few MORE heads around.
Drink Up: Start your day with a litre of water on an empty stomach. Not only is it great for detoxing, and flushing out toxins out of your system, but also a boost to your metabolism. Chances are you’ll be downing a few drinks so make sure you make up for it by sipping on coconut water and fresh fruit juices.
Use Aloe Vera: Most of us know are well-versed with the goodness of aloe vera. This plant is easily available and its properties make it go-to fix for skin and hair. Use aloe filled products in a gel or juice format especially if you’re prone to acne or breakouts.
Enjoy radiant, glossy-looking skin: Wouldn’t it be perfect if you didn’t have to apply too much of a base or a highlighter and ace the glossy look anyway? So take out 10 minutes before bath time and try this fix: take 1 tablespoon of gram flour and mix it with unsweetened curd at home to form a paste. Apply liberally and keep it on for 15 minutes and rinse off. This takes care of dry patches and adds a natural glow to your skin.
Make your own bronzer: Great for the gut, papaya can be a natural fix for a natural shine. If you start doing this a couple of days before events, you’ll be good to go. Chandni recommends mashing a few slices of papaya and mixed with milk cream (malai) and applying it for 15 minutes. Wash off and do it consistently to see a change. Do this on your back, arms, neck and tummy to look smoking hot in a saree.
Follow up with salon appointments: Besides these, go for regular facials 3 days before a big wedding you’re attending. That’s when your skin looks brighter, firmer and youthful. Lastly, if opting for a body wax/bleach, do it 2-3 days in advance so that if there’s any redness or breakouts, your skin has enough time to recover and look wonderful.
