3 Months Skincare Regime for Brides to Be
Wedding is just 3 months away? Don’t worry, we have the perfect skincare regime for Brides to be that gets you glowing away in no time! All you need to do is practice these simple steps every single day for the next 3 months.
The most important part of a good bridal skincare routine is how and with what you cleanse your face on a daily basis. Switch to a soap-free facial cleanser if possible (to reduce exposure to harmful and harsh chemicals).
Always begin your day with a natural cleanser that leaves your skin soft, supple and glowing. Think good old nani-dadi recommended DIY cleansers and ubtans made of milk & gram flour (besan), or milk, honey and gram flour, curd and gram flour etc.

The trick is to find out what works for you and what cleans your skin without drying it out.
Pro Tip – Don’t forget to cleanse your neck along with your face!
If you wear make-up on a daily basis, its a MUST to cleanse properly before you hit bed! Without doubt, double cleansing is not just a fad or buzzword – it actually WORKS!
First, wash your face with an oil or cream based cleanser to get rid of the layer of makeup and dirt. Next, use a light gel based cleanser and massage it into your skin using your fingertips or a soft cloth so that it deep cleanses and prepares your skin for everything good that’ll follow the cleansing step.
Tone it up!
Toning is something we girls usually never pay attention to! But TBH, it is equally important as cleansing. It is that one step of your skincare routine that gently refreshes your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture.
Not sure which toner works for you? A rose water face mist is your safest bet and works great on almost all skin types! After cleansing, simply sprinkle it on some cotton wool and gently dab it all over your face. This natural toner will hydrate your skin and leave behind a refreshing and soothing aroma 🙂
Moisturise, Moisturise & Moiturise!
Last in your daily skincare routine comes moisturizing, the most satisfying part of your regimen. Use a good quality moisturizer that works for your skin type, you don’t want your skin overloaded and unable to breathe, yet it shouldn’t be under hydrated and feel stretchy!
Also, don’t forget that a good lip balm with SPF is good to end your skincare routine. It will keep your lips hydrated and well moisturised.

P.S. If you have dark circles, a hydrating eye cream is a great idea before you go to sleep at night. You can also try cold tea bag or cucumber slices regularly to reduce dark circles.
But most importantly dear, don’t miss out on your regular dose of 8 hours of beauty sleep! That’s the one most crucial step to keep dark circles away forever.
Top Tips for Brides to Be
Glowing Skin Rules!
Do not stay outdoors in the sun for long without a sunscreen. Make sure to re-apply after 3 hours. A good sunscreen not just protects your skin from sun damage, but also from harmful UV rays. It keeps pigmentation away, which means lesser layers of makeup!
If you have pigmentation, marks or acne, consult your dermatologist and use a treatment cream suggested by him and be consistent.
Award winning wedding makeup artist Mausam has some secret skincare tips! “Change your linens once a week – its an important part of your skincare regime. Dust and dirt can accumulate on your face through your sheets and give you a break out when you least want it!”
“Double cleanse your skin every night, this will make sure makeup, sunscreen and all other gunk is removed.” Says Mausam.
We often forget this, but its important to get rid of all those makeup items that have expired long back and are still sticking around in your makeup kit! You’re getting married soon, so go treat yourself and stack up with a fresh load of tried and tested essentials.
Pro Tip – If you’re looking to switch to a new brand of makeup or try something exciting that you got as a gift, please make sure you do a patch test!

What goes in, Matters! – A good diet reflects directly on your face, so it’s necessary to eat well (fresh fruits, veggies and natural smoothies!) and stay hydrated. Also, avoid food that’s too spicy as it can really disrupt the skin right before an important event!

Don’t forget to include seasonal fruits like pineapple, kiwi, banana, strawberries and green leafy vegetables in your diet as they make your skin glow like no other. Non-vegetarians can include egg and omlette, fish, fish oil extracts.
Mua Mausam suggests, “Processed food increases pigmentation in the long run, so its best avoided.” Running out for a last minute shopping trip and need a carry along snack? Ditch that packet of chips for a box of mixed nuts and dry fruits!
Mind over Matter! Meditation is surely one of the most effective ways to calm your mind and body of all the wedding planning stress. So you must not forget to include at least 15 minutes of meditation in your daily morning routine.
Do’s and Don’ts for Clear Glowing Skin on your D Day!
When we’re talking of skincare regime for Brides to be, how can we forget a list of important Do’s and Don’ts that can help you make it or break it!
Makeup & Skincare Do’s
Everyone who hears that you’re getting married will come up to you with their own list of tried and tested “best skincare products”. Pssssssst – Don’t get tempted to try ‘em all out!
We suggest, you should visit a dermatologist yourself, and get proper skin care routine suggestions based on your personal skin type.
Makeup artist Mausam also suggests, “Definitely go for clinical facials, they are very different from the old school traditional ones. Regular clinical facials can give you clear glowing skin over time.”
Skincare Don’ts for to-be Brides!
Don’t go experimenting with looks and trying on new products weeks before your big day!
No matter, how tired you are, NEVER EVER sleep with your makeup on! It not only makes your skin look dull and rough, but also does long lasting damage to your skin.
We’re often in a hurry to step out in the mornings. But MUA Mausam reveals, “Don’t skip your skin care routine, even a few times! It only takes a few minutes – please follow it religiously, no matter what.”
She also suggests, “Don’t try laser facial hair removal just before your wedding. It might turn out bad as its done for a lot of people I’ve seen.”
Stay away from excessively oily food as much as you can, we all hate the dreaded word “acne”!
Last, but not the least, don’t take stress. When your mind is troubled, it shows on your face in the form of breakouts or dullness. It may sound difficult to do it all yourself, so take help to keep things organized and be prepared that even if something doesn’t go as planned, it’ll really not matter in the long run!
