5 Expert Skincare Tips For The Bride To Be This Winter Season
Winter is coming, and so is the wedding season! If you are a bride-to-be who is planning to walk down the aisle this winter then you must take special measures to prep your skin to brave the chilly weather. Here are 5 expert skincare tips that will help your skin look its flawless and radiant best on the big day.
- Protect your skin from the sun
Even though the winter sunlight may seem mild, the UV rays can still wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure to apply a sunscreen with SPF30 or higher every single day and cover your face when you step out in direct sunlight. To remove any existing tan from your body, exfoliate your skin twice a week. The Baene Sugar Body Scrub is extremely effective at tan removal and will help you achieve an even skin tone.
- Avoid new skincare ingredients
Do not experiment too much with new skincare ingredients during the days leading up to the wedding. Your skin may react adversely to an unfamiliar ingredient, leading to redness, rashes or breakouts. Instead, stick to the skincare ingredients and products that have always worked for you and introduce any new products to your regimen at least 2-3 months before the wedding. Don’t forget to perform a patch test with every new product before you start using it.
- Avoid hot water showers
The dip in the mercury may tempt you to indulge in long hot water baths or showers but this can dry out your skin and hair. The cold weather already leads to dryness and flakiness, and the hot water will further worsen the state of your skin. Use lukewarm water instead to avoid any damage to your skin right before the wedding. Also, try to keep your baths as short as possible to prevent your skin from drying out.
- Add Omega fatty acids to your diet
Omega fatty acids make your skin look plump, youthful and supple. Therefore, you must incorporate food items rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in your diet in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Fish, nuts, and flax seeds are some of the power foods when it comes to improving the health of your skin, so make sure to gorge on these before D-day!
- Hydrate your skin in all ways possible
You may not feel as thirsty as usual during the winter months but you must not reduce your water intake if you want your skin to glow on your wedding day. Water helps to flush out the toxins from the body and prevents any dullness on the skin. You must also hydrate your skin from the outside by applying a generous amount of moisturizer after every bath. The Baene Cucumber & Aloe Body Yogurt will add ample moisture to your skin without leaving it feeling greasy or sticky.
These tried and tested skincare tips will allow you to achieve that bridal glow with ease. So if you want all eyes to be on you on your wedding day then start pampering your skin today!
