A Peek into a Bridal Skincare Routine

Brides to be are much of anticipation for their Big Day. On one side is the ecstasy of marrying the man of your dreams, while on the other is to look perfect on your Big Day. Preparations start six months before, from selecting the suitable and attire of your choice to the accessories. In between all these, what most brides to be neglect is taking care of their own skin. Even though bridal makeups make you look classy, the natural bridal glow makes you stand apart.

If possible, you should start at least six months prior to your Big Day to achieve this natural glow. The right diet and proper exercise are what makes you stay healthy. As Ayurvedic approaches are holistic and aim to detoxify from the inside out, taking an Ayurvedic skin care routine is a better option for the to be brides.

Regular body massages

Ayurveda emphasizes the use of oils for the treatment of skin problems. It would be best if you started this at least 3 to 4 months before your wedding. Some of the Ayurvedic oils that you can use are Nalpamaradi thailam, Eladi thailam, and you can also opt for extra virgin coconut oil. These oils help you evade skin problems like tanning and hyperpigmentation.


Make sure to cleanse your face daily at least three months before the big day. Raw milk is a good cleanser. You can also opt for rose water (authentic and exotic rose water is available at Shesha Ayurveda). Cleanse your face twice a day; if you are out of time, make sure to cleanse your face before sleep. This helps remove the impurities.

Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliate regularly. A good scrub can help clear off the dead skin build up in your face. Exfoliate at least twice a week. Try Tejaswini face wash powder by Shesha Ayurveda, which can be used as a daily scrub. It not only exfoliates your skin but also nourishes the skin.

Moisturize your skin

Moisturize your skin regularly. This keeps your skin healthy and keeps it nourished. A good moisturizer for your skin is extra virgin coconut oil. The cold processed one available at Shesha Ayurveda does wonder. You can use Shesha Ayurveda Kumkumadi thailam in your night care routine. Kumkumadi thailam provides you with a glowing face addressing all your skin problems.

Face packs

Face packs and face packs are good options to provide that sheen and lustre to your skin. Go for all natural face packs. For a glowing face, try Kumkumadi Suvarna Ubtan, specially formulated for the brides to be.

Ayurvedic facials

Start getting facials for your face six months before. Do not indulge in chemical products, and it is better to go all natural. You can use a natural product to give yourselves an at-home facial. Also, please do remember you should not use new products weeks before your wedding day because you might not have the time to address any skin problems that arise due to it.

Along with the above said routines, do practice the following

Healthy Diet:  A healthy diet keeps you fit and also your skin glowing. Indulge in fruits according to the season.

Stay Hydrated: Hydration is the key to glowing skin. You can also opt for fruit juices and herbal teas.

Practice Yoga:  For a sound body, mind, and soul, indulge in yoga. It not only keeps you healthy and tones your body but also results in glowing skin.

Sleep: You should ensure good quality sleep. This helps to keep those under eye dark circles at bay. A sound sleeps calms not only our central nervous system but also reduces stress.

You can follow these steps to attain glowing skin the natural way, not just for the brides to be. Still, anyone can keep following these to achieve glowing, radiant skin.
