Written by Hira Shaheen on January 17, 2017

A wedding isn’t about only tying a knot. It’s about lavish designer outfits, radiant makeup and tons of pictures! To achieve these “bride goals”, brides-to-be need to develop a set of healthy habits, especially for their skin. This skin regime should be followed religiously for it to be most effective. Here are some tips to achieve healthy,  glowing skin.

1. Cleanse and exfoliate

Cleansing and exfoliation are no-brainers but for brides, it’s even more crucial. All those shopping trips make you vulnerable to pollution and clogged pores. So make sure to develop a habit of mild exfoliation and deep cleansing daily before going to bed. It removes dirt and dust and nourishes your skin.

2. Make water your best friend

Among all the wedding related stuff to keep in your bag for the next few months, make the water bottle an important commodity. Your skin needs sufficient hydration to rid itself of  dullness. Make a mental note of drinking water consciously after every hour and gulp down at least 8 glasses per day. Starting your day with a glass of lukewarm water with a hint of lemon juice is recommended for a glowing skin.

3. Get your beauty sleep

Sleep is crucial for radiant skin. If we take beauty sleep for granted, our skin will give us a tough time. It’s necessary for keeping our hormones balanced and body well-rested too. Who wants dark circles before a wedding? Prioritize your sleeping hours and save yourself from worrisome skin problems before big events.

4. Tweak down your stress levels

Considering the magnitude of planning wedding needs, it is only natural that we feel anxious. Dealing with many people while trying to stay focused and organized can cause stress which takes its toll on the skin too. Incorporate some stress management techniques in your routine, such as daily yoga, or simply try some deep breathing exercises.

5. Don’t forget the sun protection

This is a crucial step in our skin care routine – yet the most ignored and underrated. Pakistan’s heat at times can be unbearable and brutal and it’s hardly what your delicate skin needs before the big day!  Make sure to protect it from the sun by using sunscreen every time you go out. It prevents spotting, dryness, and damage done to your skin by UV rays.
