A Skin Care Checklist 6 Months Ahead of Your Wedding
Our natural, Ayurvedic skin care products follow the philosophy of Slow Beauty – allowing routines to be the same for long enough that you start to see a positive change in the way you look and feel.
It follows that “Start early” is a skin care advice that is then perhaps the most relevant for you if you are a bride to be, for results to effectively show by the time for your wedding.
Here are some of our most effective bridal skin care recommendations for you:
Lifestyle Suggestions for Brides to Be:
Begin with some healthy lifestyle changes. Fine tune your diet well in advance, to prepare for the stressful days ahead. Include Ashwagandha in your diet, to increase vitality, energy, endurance, stamina, and strengthen the immune as well as metabolic system. It is also known to calm the mind and promote sound, restful sleep, which you might be missing out on due to mental or physical strain that comes with being a bride!
Staying hydrated with water is essential but go one step ahead by preparing some Fennel Water. Immerse Fennel seeds in warm water or steep them overnight in cold water, then warm preferably in a copper jar which adds its own nutrients to the water, and sip throughout the day. Fennel seeds or Saunf are a powerhouse of metabolism boosting nutrients and necessary vitamins and minerals, which can not only assist you in shedding some pounds but also enhance immunity, uplift mood, and finally improve the overall texture of your skin.
Yoga is the ultimate way to mould the best version of yourself in time for your wedding day. Sign up for Asthanga yoga for a structured and challenging yet extremely rewarding routine, to increase stamina, flexibility and mindfulness.
