You’ve got the dress, the date is set, and your big day is around the corner. You might be ready, but your skin needs its own sweet time to be at its best. We are here to share the tips and tricks that every bride-to-be needs to know in the run-up to her big day....
- Lay off the actual cake, eat healthy
Your skin is a direct reflection of your eating habits. While your skin-care routine matters, your diet is also rudimentary for good skin. As you approach your wedding, eliminating sugar, carbohydrates, and alcohol can help you achieve clear, plump, and fresh-looking skin. Don’t starve yourself and turn into a hangy bridezilla; instead, eat portion-controlled meals with a mix of fruits, green vegetables, and protein. Sip on hydrating beverages like coconut water and lime water. Also, include green tea in your diet for a healthy dose of antioxidants.
- Water is at the core of hydration
It’s impossible to promote liquid intake unless one talks about water. Keeping yourself hydrated is the key to glowing skin. While it’s hard to remember to drink water, we recommend methods like putting reminders or taking your handy water bottle along wherever you’re headed.
- Moisturise, moisturise, and moisturize
If water is the highest quality hydration for your body, then the Océglōw Water Cream is the most premium hydration for your face. Created to suit all skin-types with natural ingredients such as bamboo water, tea-tree oil, green tea, and brown algae, the water cream is perfect for hydration. Also, extend your clean and natural beauty products to your entire skincare regimen. Harsh chemical-based products are at a higher risk of harming your skin.
- Exfoliate and Cleanse with a newfound purpose
We continue to encourage you to keep it all natural, and a great way to naturally remove toxins and dead cells from your face is by exfoliating. For fresh glowing skin, wash your face with the Intense Hydration Cleanser that is infused with aquamarine extracts to nourish your skin. While doing the cleanser's job of removing the day’s dirt, it goes above and beyond to remove stubborn makeup and give your skin the exfoliation you’re looking for. all while not stripping away natural oils. The gentle formula also consists of 1.8% salicylic acid, which is renowned for smoothing the skin’s texture.
- Brighten your skin for that aspired glow
Brightening serums are an underappreciated product that many brides-to-be overlook. However, if you know you want your skin to have that lit-from-within glow, you have to incorporate the Glow Serum into your routine. After cleansing and exfoliating your skin, apply the vitamin based serum that is known for its Vitamin C concentrate. It is trusted to minimise dark spots, diminish pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines. And as the name suggests, it’s final goal is to make your skin glow without the highlighter on your big day.
- Sleep is actually for the strong, not the weak
Anxiety, nerves, excitement: multiple factors can cause havoc with a bride’s sleep in the run up to her wedding day. Put away your devices and keep screens out of your bedroom. Apart from the negative effects of blue light-emitting devices on the sleep hormone melatonin, the constant monitoring of our social media, emails, and alerts means that our brains are overstimulated at a time when we should be reducing stimulation and allowing our minds to become calmer, paving the way to sleep.
Our guide will ensure you look every bit like the blushing, glowing, beautiful bride when the big day arrives.
