1. Pre-wedding: Facials
Every bride will benefit from having regular facial treatments, but if this isn’t an option due to time or money, then book in for a one-off facial before your big day. Facials are beneficial because they deeply cleanse the skin, boost circulation, are hydrating and help to bring skin to its natural balance.
Regular course of facials ensures deep cleansing, removal of dead cells along with black heads and white heads, better blood circulation and simultaneously makes your skin bright, firm and soft. Just any facial may not suit your skin. Hence, consult the expert and with the information provided about facial you can conclude to what is appropriate for your skin type. If you have serious skin concerns, do consult a dermatologist long before your wedding instead of planning your facial routine on your own. You can choose among Gold, Pearl or Diamond facials which will give you an extraordinary bridal glow. For maximum results, facials should be enjoyed every four to six weeks. It is advisable to begin having treatments six to 12 months before your wedding date. So remember that you do not have your final facial too close to the big day – about 12 to 14 days before would be advisable, just to allow your complexion to settle.
2. Pre-wedding: Full Body Waxing: Arms, Legs, Back, Bikini
Waxing is considered to be the easiest and the most effective way to get that buttery smooth and fresh body skin which is going to last typically anywhere from 3-5 weeks, just what you need for your wedding day and thereafter for honeymoon. Adopt this method as soon as possible in your pre-wedding to-do list if you haven’t and let your skin get used to the process. The wedding wax should ideally be scheduled 3-4 days before the big day which would be enough to settle any minor skin problems that might occur due to the process. Get a full body wax done before the wedding so that you can just relax while the professionals do the magic to your skin! Chocolate wax is by far the best option which apart from efficient hair removal, helps to remove tan and leaves the skin super smooth and moisturized (also the cocoa smell is heavenly!).
A bikini wax (A more effective and hygienic option than shaving or hair remover creams) is also extremely important, that gives your body a sensuality for those after wedding intimate moments. Thoughtfully choose a reputed professional salon or clinic to get it done at least 2-3 days prior to the wedding. You can start bikini waxing in regular intervals few months before as when done the first time it may leave the skin a little tender temporarily.
One thing you have to keep in mind is, waxing is just a temporary method and may cause skin damaging. So to avoid this the best way is to go for a permanent laser hair reduction apart from the temporary ones and consulting an expert dermatologist for this will be the best idea.
3. Pre-wedding: Threading- Eyebrow shaping and Facial hair removal
The eyes are the most expressive part of your face, hence you need to dress them up accordingly. Neatly groomed and shaped eyebrows add grace to your expressions. Get your eyebrows/ upper lip threading done just 2 days before the wedding while threading of hair on other parts of the face must be done at least a week before (as it may leave skin a bit inflamed). An epilator may help you to cope with the facial hair regularly at home. Girls having excessive facial hair are highly recommended to get Laser hair removal treatment done. It ensures reduction of hair growth over a few sittings and you can stay hassle free for a long time. For this an expert dermatologist’s opinion and consultation will do you good.
