If you’re a bride-to-be, you can’t afford to miss this. It’s hard to decide who to believe when it comes to skincare and makeup. With wedding season springing to mind, you might hear a lot of distinct tips and tricks. Every bride wants to nail her pre-wedding skincare routine to shine on the big day.
Above all, one piece of advice is not to fall into the black hole of unsolicited internet advice on treatments and products. Some brides also opt for surgeries to alter their appearance. This should be strictly avoided. Below we list 5 myths that brides often hear when preparing for their big day.
Myth 1: Treat your acne with special products
Do: If your skin is prone to acne, people will often comment on your skin and suggest ways to treat your acne. A bride-to-be is often recommended to use products like acne face wash, acne cream, and scrubs. But you should try to avoid these products because sometimes they can do more harm than good. If these give adverse reactions to your skin, your skin will get worse and could lead to irreversible marks. A better way to treat acne is to moisturize regularly, double cleanse, and keep your skin hydrated. It is well said that “what goes inside comes out”. So, good sleep, healthy diet, and a better routine can help treat acne. Also try to keep your diet regularly clean and minimal to keep your skin healthy.
Myth 2: Opt for an oil massage
Do: Beauticians and peers often suggest the bride-to-be to opt for oil massages to make the skin glow and shine. But if you have oily skin, it can make the condition worse. Oil massages can bring out the oil in your skin and also increase the rate of sweating. Also, if the oil is not suitable for your skin, it can cause allergies and skin reactions.
Myth 3: No moisturizer for oily skin
It all depends on the quality of your skin and the density of the oil in your skin. If your skin is too oily, you can opt for a toner. Smell your skin after applying your toner. If you feel the toner is doing its job well, you can skip the moisturizer. Dermatologists also say that oil on your skin on the outside doesn’t mean your skin is nourished on the inside. So, you can apply a light moisturizer on your oily skin.
Myth 4: Drink more water to cure dry skin
Do: Drinking more water keeps your body hydrated, but no research says it will also hydrate your skin. Hydrating and nourishing the skin is very less related to keeping the body hydrated and controlling body temperature. Treat your dry skin with natural moisturizers and products that nourish your skin.
Myth 5: Natural ingredients are always the best
Do: It is often said that natural products like aloe vera, curd, etc. are best for skin treatment. This is not always true. A synthetic product does not mean that it is harmful to the skin, and if a product is natural, it does not mean that it is beneficial to the skin. Even aloe vera is not suitable for all skin types. So never trust natural products without testing.
Today we busted 5 bridal skincare myths. The wedding day is one of the most crucial days in a person’s life. Don’t ruin your look before the big day and dress your best. Take care of your skin for months and weeks like a queen. Your skincare doesn’t have to be expensive, but it has to be effective.
Remember to consult a dermatologist if you have many skin problems and ask about product recommendations. Never trust public opinion and gossip around the corner. Remember that your skin can completely change how you look and feel on the wedding day.
