Beauty experts at Biotique suggest a strong and effective line-up of Ayurvedic skincare for soon-to-be brides.
It’s that time of the year again when we start browsing through our Pinterest account for the latest wedding lehengas. Fitness and eating right become our top priorities as we start prepping for the wedding shenanigans. We skim through our beauty apps looking for magical potions to help us achieve flawless skin. Make-up and chemical treatments can temporarily boost our skin’s glow but what about the aftermath? With so many options at our disposal, we are bound to get overwhelmed.
Choosing a well-curated Ayurvedic skincare routine, enriched with 100 per cent pure ingredients and botanical extracts can naturally improve your skin’s cellular health, resulting in glowing, flawless skin pre, during and post the wedding season.
Here’s how you can start an ayurvedic skincare regime:
Consciously choose chemical and paraben-free products
‘Real’ is really beautiful and the easiest way to achieve beautiful and glowing skin is to be one with nature. Choose skincare products enriched with natural ingredients such as papayas, cucumber, ashwagandha and honey. The goodness of these super ingredients can help fight skin problems like acne, pigmentation and dullness.
Practice cleansing, toning and moisturising daily
Running around for the wedding preparations can expose your skin to dirt and impurities. Having a hectic schedule can lead to dull and tired skin. With a regular CTM routine twice a day you can ensure your skin’s basic requirements are met.
Make sure to wash your face with a soap-free face wash twice a day. Face wash packed with papaya juice or honey restores moisture in the skin and prevents dullness. Don’t forget to use a toner as the next step to your skincare routine. It not only refreshes the skin but also tightens your pores. Lastly, moisturise your face to keep your skin hydrated.
Exfoliate regularly for soft supple skin
Regular exfoliation of the skin removes dead skin and promotes healthy skin cells. Choose products infused with natural ingredients like papaya, mud, walnuts or coffee to create your own DIY scrub. Exfoliating your face and body twice a week can help you achieve smooth skin.
An Ayurvedic skincare routine full of herbs and natural ingredients has always been a consistent part of Indian weddings since time immemorial. While it’s natural to feel both nervous and excited for your D-day, don’t let your skin concerns take the front seat. Put them to rest with a customised routine that takes care of your skin issues and gives you a radiant look on one of the most important days of your life.
