DIY Bridal Skincare

In our version of a fairytale wedding, a glowy, gorgeous skin is just one of those things that happen in a snap of the fingers (along with a few white doves sprinkling confetti, maybe). However, in real life you have to go an extra mile to achieve the skin of your dreams, especially when you are planning a wedding in the midst of a pandemic. As stressful as everything is, you don’t need to rue over the lack of professional skincare help—or your inability to keep up with your appointments during lockdowns. With the myriad of skin tools, active ingredient-infused products and detox smoothie recipes present out there, you really don’t have to step out of your house even ONCE. Call us your fairy god mother, because we have collated some genius tips and tricks that will give you the skin, you have always dreamt about if not better!

Let’s get started with the pre-wedding skin care at home.

1. Time To Bring Out The Chemical Exfoliants

We all know the benefits of the good ol’ scrub. But what you also need are chemical exfoliants such as AHAs (Lactic & Glycolic Acid), BHAs, PHAs and fruit enzymes that remove dead skin cells, aids in cell turnover and smoothes & brightens skin. What makes them extremely easy to use is the fact that are available in the form of cleansers, toners, essences etc. making them oh-so easy to use. Try alternating between the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and the PIXI Glow Tonic that deeply cleanses for radiant and healthy skin.

2. Try Easy Facials At Home

Who says you can’t get the benefits of salon facials at home? Opt for the Cheryl's Cosmeceuticals Oxyblast Facial Kit a seven step monthly skin routine that replenishes lost oxygen and the active ingredients helps restructure the skin. If you have been missing out on your chemical peel appointments, then try the Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate. It’s also a safe gateway product for a chemical face peel newbie who want to give their skin a genius boost.

3. Say Yes to Active Ingredients

Being ardent admirers of products infused with active ingredients, we can’t recommend these enough. Incorporate serums and essences infused with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Kojic Acid, Niacinamide and Retinol that work overtime to lighten pigmentation, fine lines, dark spots, hydrate and brighten the skin like no other. Some of our all-time favourites are O3+ Age Lock Vitamin C Booster Serum, Dr. Sheth's Basic Brightening Youth Glotion, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel and the Dot & Key Collagen Restorative Time Reverse Retinol Serum.

4. Pay Attention to Your Décolletage

Unfortunately, the neck and decolletage are some of the most neglected parts—and also coincidentally one of the first places on your body to show visible signs of aging. However, instead of opting for regular face creams, try products such as the phos4us Neck and Chin Tightening Cream or the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Perfect Lift And Firm Night Cream that smoothens wrinkles, lifts and firms sagging skin on the neck to improve elasticity.

5. Harness The Power Of Skin Tools

If you want to optimize the goodness of all your skincare products, then it’s best to opt for facial massaging tools that promotes lymphatic drainage, relaxes your muscles to relieve tension and encourages circulation to reducing puffiness. Choose from the House Of Beauty Quartz Gua Sha (sculpts & firms) or the Dromen & Co Jade Facial Roller (fades acne marks & removes toxins) to balance your skin chi.

6. Don’t Forget Your Supplements

What you eat reflects on your skin. In addition to a nutritious diet, it’s important to opt for Vitamin and Essential Fatty Acids supplements such as Chicnutrix Glow, Himalayan Organics Organic Collagen Builder Capsules, Oziva Plant Based Vitamin E Capsules and the St.Botanica Fish Oil 1000 mg that neutralizes free radical cell damage and keeps skin looking plump and healthy.

7. Manage Stress

Might not seem much to you, but this is the key element to making everything really work. Meditate, do yoga, play with your pooch or watch the latest season of Selling Sunset—basically, do what you need to do to keep those frown lines at bay. We love lighting up the Veedaa Himalayan Cedar And Patchouli Candle and taking a long soak in a tub infused with the Soulflower Lavender Bath Salt. Divine.
