4-6 months before the wedding is the time to change your lifestyle and give it a healthier body and skin loving tweak. How you lead your life has a huge impact on your skin, so start eating well, exercising, de-stressing (by now you know how stressful wedding planning can be) and overall taking better care of yourself
Watch That Weight
To get in shape for your wedding day, one should start to watch their weight at least six months prior. Maintain a proper diet; eat in moderation, no fad diets. Exercise regularly.
Have A Healthy Lifestyle
What you eat reflects on your face & body. For a clear skin acne free skin start avoiding dairy based products and sweets. Eat green vegetables and fruits for glowing skin (but remember to not overcook the vegetable eat them as raw as possible). Get your share of the beauty sleep now. Try to get at least 8 hrs of sleep and don’t forget to drink lots and lots of water. Get a regular blood test.

Pigmentation is one of the biggest concerns that we as Indians face, due to our positioning in the tropics, we tend to pigment more that we tend to wrinkle. To reduce pigmentation like sun spots, tanning, etc., you can use a combination of treatments like peels, lasers, medi-facials and so on. The most popular bridal treatment for pigmentation currently is PicoSure® for pigmentation, open pores, skin texture, skin tightening and even-toned brighter skin! It’s priced around Rs.14, 000 for full face which is perfect if you are looking at an all in one treatment instead of multiple ones. It is considered the ultimate laser for unmatched results not only for pigmentation but also for open pores, dramatically improved skin texture and skin tightening.
With the big day getting closer, don’t pick on acne, they can spread and it will be difficult to get rid of the scars so close to the wedding day. Maintain a good clean diet (avoid dairy and sugar), regular clean-ups, a good skin care regime with salicylic acid based cleansers go a long way to help keep your skin acne free. If acne does develop, use a cream containing Benzoyl peroxide. If you’re still breaking out, discuss getting on an oral prescription with your doctor and opt for Clearskin Laser that helps destroy acne causing bacteria and reduce the reoccurrence of acne which is priced at Rs.3,500 onwards
