All eyes on the hair

Beautiful hair demands attention, care and a little devotion. Women already know that heat-styling, washing and blow drying their hair daily does more harm than good to their locks. The end result is usually dreadful, and your hair will end up looking careless on the day of the wedding. If you don’t want to cut your hair, avoid split ends and lack of glow, you need to begin a repairing process with at least 30 days in advance. Begin the ‘healing’ from the inside out. Nutritionists advise brides and bridesmaids to opt for a diet rich in vitamin B. Vitamin B will help restore your hair’s glow and healthy-looking appearance. Healthy foods such as eggs, fish and nuts contains excellent amounts of this vitamin.


In case of severe vitamin B deficiency, a nutritionist may also recommend a supplement. On the outside, you might want invigorate your scalp with a deeply nourishing conditioner. Go for a professional treatment at a salon; it might last for 4 weeks, but the end result will be a healthy, glowing hair that will shine brighter than ever on the wedding day. The right treatment will stimulate their hair follicles to grow faster and healthier, not to mention that your lock will have more thickness and volume.

Rejuvenate your face

When it comes to the face, the best way to restore its glow and elasticity is with deeply a moisturizing and cleaning treatment. Pay a visit to a dermatologist, and ask for guidance. Many brides to be are stressed before their wedding; and stress leads to hormonal imbalances that might cause skin rashes, acne, redness, zips and more. A dermatologist will recommend you skincare products that are aimed at your type of skin.


Start a treatment with at least 2 months before the big day in order to allow the skin to adjust. If the goal is to restore your complexion’s glow and elasticity, a facial massage or scrub should do the trick. The right scrub will ward off dead skin cells, thus improving circulation and eradicating black spots and dryness. Leaving aside all these guidelines, the main secret to a perfect skin is hydration. Drink more water daily to keep your skin hydrated and you’ll look radiant on the day of the wedding.


Take care of your lips

Every bride craves after the perfect kiss on her wedding day. You certainly don’t want people looking at your cracked lips, so you might want to take good care of them in advance. Invest in an all-natural vitamin E lip balm to combat creases and cracks, and make sure to exfoliate your lips one a week to eliminate dead skin. During the day, use sunscreen on the lips to prevent them from drying up, and by the time of your wedding your lips will look gorgeous.

The skin on your face is just as important as the skin on your body. Just because you’re working out and getting in shape physically, it doesn’t mean your skin will look perfect on the day of the wedding. Treat your body from within if you want it to look toned and feel smooth as silk. Daily multivitamins matter just as much as food. Even if you’re eating healthy, you still need to supplement your body with an added dose of vitamins to keep it energized and revitalized. On the outside, the key to a smooth skin is exfoliation. Use a daily scrub with at least 2 weeks before the big day, and you’ll feel like a million dollars when walking down that aisle.
