Every bride wants to look her best on the most important day of her life – her wedding day. As all the eyes are on her and most of the photographs are of her, she is nothing less than a celebrity on her wedding day.
Are you also getting married soon and want to grab all the praises and adulation of your groom and the guests? Then, you’re at the right place.
Wedding preparations are already quite stressful. Save your skin from the stress of chemicals and give it an organic treat. Amidst the mayhem of shopping and bookings, you are left with little time to take care of yourself. So, here we bring you some really easy and quick remedies to revamp your look and that too, naturally!
1. Hydrate Your Skin
Water is the elixir of life. You’ve heard it, you know it. So, please make sure you drink as much water as you can in a day’s time. Also, consume naturally hydrating foods like cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelons, lettuce, grapefruits etc. These foods have a high level of water content and will replenish your body as well as skin.
2. On-the-go Rose Mist
Pure rose water has been used in Ayurveda to restore PH balance, hydrate and uplift dull skin. All you need to do is store your rose water of your favourite brand in a spritz bottle and keep spraying it on your face throughout the day. You can take care of your skin even when out for shopping! Just make sure that your rose water is from the rose plantations of Kannauj, Uttar Pradesh.
3. Get Beautiful Hands and Feet
Strive to be a beautiful bride, from head to toe. While taking care of your skin, don’t ignore your hands or feet. Your feet will get tired and bear the brunt of all the running around for wedding preparations. Massage your hands and feet for 2 minutes every night with olive oil and go off to sleep. You’ll notice a glaring difference until your wedding date.
4. Sparkle With Your Eyes
Eyes are the ‘windows to the soul.’ The nerve-wrecking wedding preparations, anxiety, sleepless nights, they all leave telltale signs under the eyes. Get rid of eye puffiness and darkness with this easily accessible product – ice. Place an ice pack under each eye for 2-3 minutes every morning after waking up and shine through your eyes during your wedding.
5. Start Using Essential Oils
Essential oils have suddenly become a rage among natural skincare lovers. Essential oils are pure extracts of plants and flowers which are steam distilled to bring you potent yet highly effective benefits for skin and hair. Essentials oils are also called ‘nature’s pharmacy.’ There are many oils you can choose from depending on your requirement – argan, lavender, tea tree, castor, rosemary, lemon and the list goes on and on.
6. Remove Makeup Naturally
Of course, removing your makeup is very important at the end of the day to get rid of all the chemicals from your face. But, what’s the point of doing it, if you are using a chemical-laden make-up remover? Food for thought, right? Don’t fret! We have a solution for you. Replace your regular makeup remover with pure almond oil and keep your skin healthy and chemical-free.
7. Be Your Own Rapunzel
Don’t have time for long sessions of hair spas? Don’t want your hair to undergo those harsh chemical treatments? Well, don’t. And, you can still flaunt gorgeous tresses at your wedding. Do this twice a week and you’ll be sorted. Simply break 2 eggs, whisk them until they form a paste-like texture. Apply on your hair and wash it off after one hour.
8. Look Bee-autiful
Honey is naturally anti-bacterial and certainly nature’s gift for the skin. Make a natural face pack by simply warming honey by rubbing it between your fingertips. Apply it on your face and neck for 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water. Be ready to dazzle everybody with a golden glow on your face.
9. Your Skin Needs Rest
Give your skin a rejuvenating night’s sleep with this unbelievably effective daily ritual. Make your own night cream by simply taking out the gel from aloe vera plants and spread on your face.
10. No Need To Buy Shampoos
Yes, you read that right. Why should you purchase those expensive, chemical-laden shampoos when you can make one yourself at home. Obviously, with natural ingredients. It’s not rocket science. Just mix apple cider vinegar and water in 1:4 ratio. Add few drops of any fragrant essential oil of your choice. Voila! Your natural hair rinse is ready. FYI, lavender essential, tea tree essential oil and rosemary essential oil - are our pick for this concoction.
Give those long and expensive sessions at salons a miss! Opt for these natural skincare remedies instead, and bring out your true inner beauty. Here’s wishing you turn out to be the prettiest bride ever!
