    Quick beauty tips for brides-to-be

    Quick beauty tips for brides-to-be

    There's always so much pressure on the bride to look gorgeous on her big day. There are no quick-fixes to looking good on your wedding day.

    You must begin a month early, if you want to look resplendent and glowing. We help you with the budget and the basics of a special beauty regimen meant for brides who don't like to leave anything for the last moment

    Unfortunately, it's that very stress that often takes an ugly toll on her skin. But that doesn't have to be you. We show you how to get that flawless skin, when you say 'I do'.

    Beauty basics: Dermatologist and cosmetologist Dr Soma Sarkar Mukherji says, "Ideally, you should start treatment for your face, body and hair around six months before your wedding." But don't go into a panic mode, if you haven't already visited your dermatologist.

    Follow the cleanse-tone-moisturize ritual daily: Cleansing your face twice a day is a must, so that dirt and toxins are washed off. Toning closes your pores after cleansing. And moisturizing hydrates your skin, making it supple.

    Apply sunscreen: A sunscreen lotion of SPF 30 or more will protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, as well as those from harsh lights of television sets and computers indoors.

    Use a skin lightening cream: Regular use of a skin lightening cream recommended by your dermatologist at night will help tackle blemishes and other imperfections in your skin. What's more, it will even out your skin tone.

    Exfoliate once or twice a week: A good exfoliating scrub helps you get rid of dead skin cells and other impurities. Periodic exfoliation will lead to glowing skin on your wedding day.

    Bring in the doc: Whether you have a complexion like Katrina Kaif's or not, it's still a good idea to visit a dermatologist. Apart from treating skin problems, your dermatologist could recommend cosmetic treatments that are apt for you. We give you some insights on the popular pre-bridal treatments.

    Photorejuvenation: This procedure uses intense pulsed light to take care of color imperfections in your skin. It's a great solution for a sun tan, uneven skin tone and age spots. Ideally, this treatment should be done for about three months.

    Cost: Approximately `3,000 per session.

    Glycolic acid peels: Exfoliating peels use glycolic acid to remove dead skin. A two-month treatment is all it takes to achieve that much-wanted glow.

    Cost: `800 to `1,200 a session.

    Microdermabrasion aka skin polishing: There are two types of microdermabrasion - one with the aluminium crystals and the other with a diamond tip probe. This treatment exfoliates the skin and has deeper action than peels. It helps get rid of acne scars, black heads and open pores while giving a polished look to your skin. Also use this treatment for your back, tummy, hands and legs too.

    Cost: `1,500 to `3,000.

    Botox and fillers: A jab of botox can take care of crow's feet, laugh and frown lines and fine wrinkles. And for those of you who haven't been blessed with Angelina Jolie's lips, fillers will give you that coveted pout.

    Cost: `10,000 onwards.

    Mesoglow: The Mesoglow treatment brings back the glow to your face, especially after the daily grind leaves it dull and lifeless. With tiny injections and a vitamin concoction, your skin will regain its moisture in just a couple of sessions.

    Cost: `3,000 to `5,000.

    Laser hair removal: Laser hair removal can be used to remove facial hair as well as hair from the surface of the body.

    Cost: `1,500 per session, depending on area.

    One month to go...

    -Don't step out in the sun a month prior to the wedding. Wrap up tasks like shopping etc before that.

    -Ask your gynaecologist to prescribe the right contraceptive pills that won't affect your skin.

    -Avoid partying late and get enough sleep before the wedding.

    -Don't experiment with products and skin treatments a month before the wedding. Stick to your usual routine.

    -Do some exercise even if it is just brisk walking.

    -Get a nourishing facial at the start of the month.

    -Try your best to relax.

    Quick-fixes before D-day: For dark circles: An under-eye cream should take care of this. Also, try a concealer.

    For pimples: Keep a pimple cream prescribed by your dermatologist handy.

    For dry skin: Ensure you apply a good nourishing moisturizer at all times.

    For a tan: Use a skin lightening cream on the advice of your dermatologist.

    Go with a trusted make-up artist

    Book your make-up artist at least two months before your wedding day, preferably on the recommendation of a close friend or family member. Discuss your skin type with her. And make sure that she uses good skin care and make-up products. Do not compromise on these factors.
