An essential aspect of your day is the health of your skin. It’s no lie that you want to look good as you walk down the aisle and for the photo session. I mean, it’s the one day you are getting married and part of it is in looking good and feeling great!
Here are handy tips on how you can ready your skin with natural products to get that radiant look.
(P.s. This is not dermatological advice, if you have certain skin challenges consult your dermatologist before trying this.)
For all these steps, do some light steaming before proceeding to the next step. Quite a D-I-Y, place some hot water in a mid-sized bucket and cover your face over it with a towel for about a minute or two.
Do this once or twice a week depending on the type of your skin or choice of ingredients. If you have oily and sensitive skin, reduce the duration. If you pick a product that is coarse, limit the exfoliation to once a week.
Products that you can use: oatmeal or rice flour or gram flour or sugar with fine granules.
The mix of oatmeal with sugar works quite well.
Once you’ve exfoliated, it’s time to mask.
Products: Blended Pawpaw or Blended Tomato or Egg White + Lemon or Bicarbonate of Soda + Rose Water or Mashed Ripe Banana + Natural Yoghurt.
Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse.
Don’t forget to steam!
Now it’s time to get the final dirt out and even the complexion.
Products: Cucumber juice or Green Apple juice or Lemon + some honey.
This depends on your skin type – dry, sensitive, oily, combination et al.
By this point, you should have found the product that works for you.
Preferably, choose something with few ingredients and without parabens or sulphates. The more organic it is the better.
Otherwise, if you’re going natural, you could try light olive oil, jojoba oil (perfect for night time), rosehip oil (a combination of this and jojoba is great for day time), castor oil and hemp seed oil. Most of these natural oils don’t clog the pores but penetrate and regenerate skin cells.
And one last thing brides, please use sunscreen! Every single day! Protect yourself from those UV rays.
Final tip, extend the process to your neck to achieve an even look.
Happy wedding day miss glamorous, you look amazing!
