All the brides to be out there raise a hand! Thanks to social pressure and somewhat unrealistic beauty standards, brides go through a punishing regimen of beautification in order to appear magazine perfect on their big day. Recently however there has been a trend of brides pushing back against the hype created by the industry and refusing to lose weight or conform to idealistic standards that pressurize them to change themselves for the sake of getting good photographs. Brides are refusing to diet, refusing to starve themselves, and certainly refusing to pay a large subscription to a gym.
However, that’s not to say they still don’t want to look radiant on their wedding day. The easiest way to show a marked difference is to improve their skin tone. Here are some of the ways you can do that:
Drink as much water as you possibly can. In many countries, water is not the #1 choice to quench a thirst yet it is the healthiest beverage out there. All other natural and artificial beverages contain additional nutrients and/or chemicals that are harmful if you ingest too much of it, but water is a guilt-free way to hydrating your skin. You will start to notice a marked difference in the suppleness of your skin once you’ve forced yourself to get used to 8 glasses a day. It will be difficult at first if water is not usually your first choice, so ease your way into it by alternating water and a detox drink in Singapore – kill two birds with one stone.
Supplements Can Help
It’s always better to get your calcium, vitamins and other nutrients from natural sources as much as possible. This means eating lots of fruits, vegetables and legumes. Close to your wedding however, you can speed up the process by taking a supplement made to improve your skin. Most of them will also help your hair grow thicker and make your nails stronger. Take them for about 3 months prior to the wedding to get the maximum benefit out of it, then ease off it after the wedding. Don’t stop immediately or you’ll lose clumps of hair. Supplements come in all shapes and forms: as a powder, beauty drink, pills, syrups and others. Find the one that works for you.
If you are not a bear about skin care routines, it might be time to become one. Invest in a loofa and scrub away the dirt every day in the shower. The prickly surface will gently exfoliate your skin and remove all the dead skin cells. Once out of the shower, slather on a good moisturizing body lotion and don’t skip the routine for more than a day. Use an exfoliating scrub every two days on your face and use moisturizer every day. Make sure you apply sunblock to exposed parts of your body when you go out. Your skin will glow with vitality and health as you walk down that aisle if you adhere strictly to all of this.
