As the date of the wedding gets closer every bride-to-be gets herself in a real tizzy. They get so nervous, excited and paranoid about every little thing and amidst the hair and makeup they often forget to take proper care of their skin. Well, no we aren't adding up a task in the list for you to visit a dermatologist but here we are with a few quick remedies suggested by experts to look your best on your D day.
Remove makeup before bed
Double cleanse your face by using micellar water followed by a mild face wash to remove makeup completely before you sleep. If you are too tired by the end of the da (especially after one too many celebratory cocktails), keep alcohol-free makeup remover wipes at your bedside for a quick cleanse.
Chapped lips fix
For instantly soft and lipstick-ready lips, mix sugar, coconut oil and honey and apply over lips. Leave on for 10 minutes and gently exfoliate lips with a clean toothbrush.
To avoid eye puffiness, elevate your head by using an extra pillow under the head when sleeping. This will prevent fluid pooling under the eyes. To temporarily reduce undereye puffiness, place chilled (brewed) green tea bags over closed eyes for 10mins.
Waking up with a pesky zit is every bride's worst nightmare. Cleanse your face every night with a salicylic acid based face wash and exfoliate gently once a week. If you do breakout, resist the urge to pick at it. Instead, use acne patches with hydrocolloid to speed up healing and conceal acne under the wedding makeup.
