Tips to be the blushing bride

You could begin using hot oil treatments and hair masks at home as early as six months before the wedding date. If you're opting for treatments that can't be done at home — like re-bonding or straightening, make sure it's either six months prior or 20 days post your wedding. This way, it will replenish whatever damage hairstyling may have caused."

Test & try
Always go for a makeup rehearsal. If you're not taking a risk with your clothes then why risk your makeup? There's no room for error

For a quick pedicure, add some foot salts in half a bucket of hot water and soak your feet for ten minutes. Use a heel scrubber or pumice stone to remove the dead skin on the heels. Remove your nail polish and re-paint your toes. Moisturize feet with foot cream. Tie a piece of clean cloth, like a bandage, wear cotton socks and go to sleep. This will help soften the skin. Do this thrice a week.

For dry and dark hands, take two tablespoons of sunflower oil, two tablespoons of lemon juice and three tablespoon of coarse sugar. Mix together till it becomes a paste. Apply and rub into hands. Wash off after 15 minutes. Do this thrice a week for best results.

Pre-wedding beauty prep
Face mask
The egg white mask is a smelly yet effective alternative to a spa experience
- Beat one egg white into a foam and add a tablespoon of oatmeal

- Mix well and make a thick paste
- Add one tablespoon of honey to the paste
- Apply it evenly around your face and keep it on for 15 minutes
- Rinse off with cold water
- Do this twice a week

Egg white tightens your pores, oatmeal soaks up excess oil from your skin, while honey renders it soft.

Body pack
Ubtan is a traditional homemade bridal recipe
- Take wheat bran, gram flour, yoghurt or cream of milk and a pinch of turmeric
- Mix together in a bowl and keep aside
- Then massage your body with sesame seed (til) oil
- Now apply the ubtan. Leave it on for half an hour, and wash off while bathing

Do this thrice a week. It helps to clear the skin of dead cells, leaving it smooth and bright, with a translucent quality

Hair mask
Give yourself a hair treatment twice a week using simple kitchen remedies. Try the curd-egg-beer mask for a volumising hair mask

- Take two tablespoons each of curd, honey and olive oil, three drops of almond oil and half a banana and make sure you mash it well to avoid lumps

- Add half a cup of flat beer and a raw egg to the mixture

- Mix the ingredients together and apply evenly all over your hair

- Cover your hair with a shower mask to prevent it from dripping

- Let it soak for 30 minutes and shampoo off with cold water

- Notice how your hair feels softer after each wash hot oil treatment

Indulge in some hot oil treatment once or twice a week to improve your hair quality

- Heat almond oil and apply to your hair
- Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the excess water and wrap it around your head like a turban. Leave it on for five minutes
- Repeat the hot towel wrap three or four times. This helps the hair and scalp absorb the oil better
