Being a bride is the most beautiful experience you will ever have. So, it's important to look your most beautiful self on your “THE DAY”. Now, don’t worry we are here to help you no matter which kind of bride you are.
The ‘Planner’ Bride
Six months to go!
It’s always better to be prepared for important events and if you are a bride with skin that needs some extra care and treatments starting early is a must for you. Professional treatments for sunburns, patchy skin, pigmentation or scars can take a long time and the skin needs time to heal after them. But if you are someone who is not a fan of chemical treatments then ayurvedic treatment oils are a good alternative. Getting regular massages can also help to attain deeply nourished skin along with relaxation.
This is also the ideal time to get into that bridal regime. Six months is ample time to get results. Here are a few essential tips:
1) Follow a healthy diet
The most important thing brides-to-be should remember is to not starve! Crash diets often lead to sudden weight gain rather than weight loss. Slowly exclude sugar and carbs from your diet and include fruit, green vegetables and proteins. Junk food can cause breakouts and bloating. Remember to sip on as many liquids as possible, coconut water, detox water and green teas can make all the difference.
Pro tip: Keep some healthy snacks like baked kale chips, fruits or fox nuts when out for wedding shopping to avoid eating junk.
2)Achieve facial-glow at home.
Pro tip: A night cream is a must-have in your night routine as they have a higher concentration of ingredients that work overnight to enhance cell turnover, hydrate and moisturize the skin.
3) Invest in a good bath!
Baths are a good way of relaxing as well as getting the perfect skin by investing in the right products. The normal wash and rinse are not enough months before the wedding. This is the time to bring out the exfoliation scrubs. Exfoliating your body is a good way to remove dirt, dead cells and pollutants from your skin. Using a premium scrub like Body Cupid 24k Gold will do wonders as it’s enriched with fine gold mica which gives you an exceptional bridal glow.
Pro tip: Use a shea-based body butter that is chemical-free for moisturized and dewy skin.

The ‘Balanced’ Bride
Three months to go!
Some brides don’t want to spend a lot of time planning and we get it. Here’s a list of few quick things you can do:
1) Get -sweat – glow!
If you haven’t already started, there is still enough time to get into a workout routine. Sweating helps flush out impurities in the dermal layer and enhances the skin tone, clarity and texture. The antibiotics present in sweat combat bacteria and reinforce the cleansing process. It improves blood circulation and mental health.
2) Up your hair game
Hair is just as important as skin for weddings so don’t ignore them. Always remember to oil your hair overnight before shampooing as oil adds essential vitamins and nutrients to your hair follicles and makes them frizz-free and stronger. Opt for Keratin based shampoos as they are amazing for healing damaged hair and makes them silky and shiny. Go for chemical-free products. Shampoos are for cleaning but it’s the conditioner that makes the hair manageable and soft. Don’t forget to use keratin-based conditioners too for the best results.

3) Beauty sleep and water are your best friends
Brides need to get their beauty sleep. No matter how busy your days are getting, 8-10 hours of sleep is a must, to keep those tired eyes and dark circles at bay. There is no shortcut for a fresh and well-rested face. In addition to sleeping, drink as much water as you can. Set reminders to drink water and say hello to soft and supple skin and lips.
