5 Things bride-to-be should do to get them prepared



The wedding date, invitation lists, and decorations are all decided months ahead of time. Every waking moment of the bride’s life is consumed by thoughts of her clothes and accessories.

You will feel gorgeous both inside and out if you follow these simple guidelines. You’ll have a million-dollar look and feel. Our final piece of advice is to try to stay joyful, because how we feel on the inside reflects on the outside.

Here is some pre-wedding beauty advice for brides who want to look their best on their big day:

1. Cleaning, toning, and moisturising

Cleaning, toning, and moisturising should be done on a regular basis. This will keep your skin looking young and radiant.

Keeping your pores open requires a clean, dirt-free face. Your skin will be able to breathe more easily as a result of this. After that, tone your skin to help tighten your pores.

To some extent, toning also helps to diminish fine wrinkles.

Finally, moisturising your face helps to lock in moisture and keeps your skin soft and supple.


2. Clinical sitting and home remedies

If you have a lot of markings or spots on your skin, clinical sittings will help you acquire a fairer, spot-free complexion rapidly.

For uneven skin, sunburns, and discoloration, seek professional help. Scars and blemishes can also be treated with microdermabrasion treatments by expert aestheticians. For fine lines, wrinkles, or even acne, begin treatments at least six months before the wedding.

To keep a spot-free appearance after the requisite number of sittings, try using DIY facial packs.

The easiest method to ensure that the effect of the clinical treatment lasts is to use home beauty tips for brides.


3. Diet

To maintain a toxin-free body, you must drink plenty of water. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water each day.

Consume a well-balanced diet rich in fruits, green vegetables, and protein.


To have healthy and bright skin, it is essential to give the body antioxidants and minerals. Nail and hair breakage, as well as a sallow appearance of the skin, are caused by a lack of vitamins or minerals.


4. Good sleep 

Prior to the wedding, you must get plenty of rest. Dark circles might be caused by a lack of sleep.

On your wedding day, a polished complexion with dark circles under the eyes would not look nice. As a result, we recommend that you sleep for at least 8-10 hours per day.


5. Facial and hair spa

Beginning at least six months before the wedding, have monthly facials. Choose a bi-weekly gold facial if you have less time on your hands. Before using any new products on your skin, always get a patch test.

Start getting a hair spa once a month for healthy, shiny hair, and start this treatment at least six months before the wedding, much like facials. If you don’t want to go to a chemical hair spa, there are a variety of homemade masks you can apply to add shine to your hair.

Perfumes can make you appear more manly, feminine, sophisticated, or appealing depending on how they smell.

They have therapeutic benefits and help us in releasing stress hormones out of the body and helps in relaxing our mind and body acting as an aphrodisiac.

Many perfumes can work as aromatherapy. Odors of winter spices, citrus, flowers and others can relax you and lower your level of stress. It comes as no surprise that a good fragrance can ward off body odor and sometimes also enhance your natural body odors.

Anything used in moderation is beneficial and so to be the best, use the best fragrance that suits your personality.

Its nothing new that most times, we are focused on our wrists, ears and neck while applying perfume. Although you may not have been doing it wrong, but you might have been missing some key spots. So today we will help guide you on how to use your perfume effectively.


1.Your hair

One of the best place to spritz perfume is your hair. The hair strands holds fragrance well and leave a trail of scent as you move from place to place.


2. Inside your elbow

We don’t need to be told that these hidden spots emit heat, which helps fragrance develop faster. Most people focus only on their clothes, however, the inside of the elbows is also a hot spot to roll on perfume.


3. Behind your ears

Like your wrists, the areas behind your ears are considered “pulse points,” where the veins are closest to the skin, thus generating more heat and amplifying your scent. Dabbing your fragrance on these points will give you more immediate results.


4. Inside your belly button

Your navel is useful for more than just belly piercings. Dab a few drops of perfume on the spot mostly when you are wearing a crop top.


5. Behind your knee

The soft area behind your knees is another one of those pulse points perfect for perfume. Throughout the day the scent will kick up as you cross your legs and move around.


6. On your clothes

Applying your scent on your body before putting on your clothes is great so that the fragrance can absorb into your skin. The typical places to spritz scent all fall under this category: the neck, wrists, cleavage. However, spritzing your clothes with fragrance can help achieve a longer lasting scent, too.
