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.
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.
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.
