edding is a very special event in a woman’s life. All women dream of looking their best on the day of their wedding. From outfit to jewelry and of course, their skin, brides want everything to be perfect. But the inevitable stress (including some bridezilla moments!) that comes with wedding plannings can take a toll on the soon to be bride’s skin. Experts from the beauty industry recommend brides to keep calm and focus on pampering their skin so that it looks radiant and flawless on their big day. Below we have shared some basic skincare tips and tricks that would come helpful to brides.
Start Your Bridal Skincare Routine Months Prior To Your Wedding
The sooner you start, the better results you will reap! Every bride should have a pre-wedding bridal skincare routine (which should be followed religiously) and the routine should include:
- CTM – Cleansing, Toning, Moisturizing, twice a day. For moisturization part, use a moisturizer that suits your skin type. We would recommend Debelle Fairness Cream to people with oily to normal skin as it is a lightweight moisturizer. Dry skinned people may opt for Debelle Moisturizing Lotion which is an immensely moisturizing and hydrating lotion for your skin.
- Exfoliation – twice a week
- Facials – at least twice a month. It doesn’t matter whether they are professional or at-home facials with natural ingredients.
Include Healthy Foods In Your Diet
The statement “you are what you eat” is true to an extent. Try to avoid fried food, sugary drinks (like coke), caffeine, alcohol and dairy products. Such foods and drinks affect your skin as much as they affect your waistline! For a radiant and blemish free skin before your D-Day, consume healthy fruits and green leafy vegetables. You can hire a professional dietitian who will make a healthy diet chart that is suitable for you.

Trying To Lose Weight Before Your Big Day? Beware Of Stretch Marks!
A lot of brides-to-be follow a daily diet and workout routine to lose weight so that they can feel healthy before their wedding and look slimmer in their wedding outfit. But weight fluctuations always bring stretch marks with them! Yes you can get stretch marks even when you are losing weight and not gaining. To tackle this issue, start using shea butter and cocoa butter all over your body. These two ingredients are known to prevent and fade away stretch marks while moisturizing the skin.Debelle Moisturizing Lotion is fortified with both of these ingredients along with jojoba oil and glycerine.
Don’t Ignore Your Hands And Feet
A bride should look beautiful from head to toe. Get regular manicures and pedicures to take care of your hands and feet as well as to keep any tan or dullness away. If you have dark elbows and knees, you can use homemade baking soda and lemon scrub to lighten them by the time your wedding day arrives. Besides that, make sure that you don’t use any nail polish that is loaded with chemicals because it can damage your nails and make them appear yellow! Try out Debelle Gel Lacquers range developed with natural seaweed extracts which help to lock in the hydration onto the nails while promoting their growth. French Affair, Moulin Rouge and Sparkling Dust are our favourite shades for the brides-to-be!
Don’t Try Any New Product Three Weeks Before Your Wedding
Using a new product (that you have never used earlier) before your wedding can be a little risky as you don’t know how certain ingredients (especially chemicals) present in it are going to react with your skin. So just to be safe, experts say that brides-to-be should not try any new skincare product at least three weeks before their wedding. The same applies to hair colouring. If you want to get highlight or a new hair colour, plan to get it three to six weeks before your wedding.
Your Teeth Should Also Look Nothing Less Than Perfect
There is going to be a lot of “smile please” moments when you are posing for the wedding pictures or meeting your groom’s relatives. Achieving perfect, pearly white teeth is not a hassle, all you require is baking soda or activated charcoal powder. You have to brush your teeth with either of these two ingredients. We would recommend using activated charcoal instead of baking soda because it is a much safer option and it is easily available online these days.
Stay Happy And Savor Every Moment
Your wedding day will come only once in your life, so stay happy and enjoy every moment. Happy you = happy skin!
