They say the best way to look youthful and beautiful is to have healthy skin. Thus, having a good skincare routine is every bride-to-be’s best bet to looking radiant on their special day. But if you’re breaking out just a few weeks before your wedding day, don’t panic. Try one of these quick tips to get glowing skin just in time for your wedding:
1. Use toothpaste for acne
Apply a small dab of toothpaste on your pimple and leave it there overnight. Wash it off with cold water the next morning. This will help minimise the size of the pimple.
A small amount is just enough! Too much toothpaste can irritate your skin and make it drier especially if you have dry skin.
2. Blueberries and strawberries for better complexion
Blueberries and strawberries are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. A lot of junk food that we eat can cause our body to be inflamed, resulting in red and sometimes itchy skin. A healthy anti-inflammatory diet, like berries, can help improve your complexion and hydrate your skin.
3. Face masks help your skin
Regular use of suitable face masks can give you healthy skin. The key is to choose the face mask that suits your skin condition: cream masks for dry skin; and clay masks for oily skin. Apply an exfoliating face mask once a while to get rid of dead skin cells to achieve glowing skin. On the bright side, they are way cheaper than facias.
4. Cold coffee compress for puffy eyes
You can use any type of cold compress to help remove puffy eyes. However, cold compress dipped in coffee is much more effective as the antioxidant properties help with the removal of dark eye circles.
5. Reduce your salt intake
If you’re used to eating out, you might be consuming at high salt diet. A high intake of salt can lead to inflammation, resulting in dry and cracked skin. By reducing your salt intake, your organs will be able to have a higher water intake, helping to keep your skin and body hydrated.
6. Try a green tea + honey facial scrub
Mix a tablespoon of dry green tea leaves with honey to make a thick facial scrub. Apply it on your face and leave it for 15 minutes. After that, start rubbing your skin in circular motion, then rinse the paste off with water. This organic facial scrub can help remove dead skin cells and impurities from your skin.
7. Get at least seven to nine hours of sleep
The simplest way to keep your skin pristine and healthy is to make sure you get enough sleep. Dark eye circles, puffy eyes, and wrinkles occur due to lack of sleep. Seven to nine hours of sleep is a healthy duration for your body to function at its best.
