What do Indian pre-wedding functions have in common? They all celebrate glowing skin! Having a beauty routine that specifically works for you is essential to achieve that radiant glow for your wedding day. Here’s an easy guide of products for you to try, that are gentle, effective and will give you gleaming skin.

If you’re planning a skincare overhaul, now is the time. Exfoliate regularly to make sure your skin looks fresh, supple and even toned. Try a facial ubtan as a cleanser (like Forest Essentials’ Soundarya Ubtan) or use it as a weekly mask for 10-15 minutes. Depending on your skin needs, pick from a range of-Multani Mitti to combat acne, Tejasvi to hydrate, Narangi and Nagkesar to reduce blemishes and Roop Nikhar Gulab Ubtan to smoothen skin.

Mix it with some yogurt or a few drops of aloe vera juice. Then, add some lustre to your skin with the Tejasvi Brightening Emulsion. It’s made of aged cow’s ghee and saffron, both of which are known for their illuminating properties. Massage the concoction into your skin using upward motions for 10 – 15 minutes and then wipe off the excess with a hot towel.

Now is when your commitment to skincare should build up. Avoid any last minute visits to the dermat by staying away from harsh formulations. Keep things simple with the Forest Essentials gentle Almond Facial Cleansing Paste to deep clean and nourish skin and the Rosewater Tonic Mist to add hydration. Finish up by massaging the Forest Essentials’ stellar and iconic Soundarya Radiance Cream for instant radiance.

 

On the day

A haldi ceremony is usually held on the day of the wedding, and traditionally, a paste of turmeric, oil and water is applied. Turmeric is considered auspicious and is known to be antimicrobial but it can impart a yellowish tint. Slather on the Soundarya Luminous Beauty Oil before the ceremony to make your skin soft and to easily remove the paste. Post the ceremony, opt for the Sandalwood and Turmeric Body Polisher; it detoxifies and refreshes skin, clears skin of any blemishes, and leaves you feeling soft, fragrant and radiant.

 

As the bride, another task at hand is organising gifts for your wedding guests whether it’s for putting together the mehendi or haldi favours, or gifts for your bridesmaids.
