So your big day has finally been set, and the countdown has begun. When it comes to planning a wedding, picking your outfit and selecting a venue can be the least of your worries. Looking radiant and picture-perfect on your wedding day is a lot more work than the rest of them.
Typically the key to beautiful skin goes beyond make-up, and this is applicable for your bridal skincare too. Bear in mind that a good beauty routine begins from within. When you glow from within the products, you apply topically will enhance your beauty further.
A basket of French fries or a creamy cheese pizza won't help you get there, but nutritious food will. So eat your way to looking gorgeous on your wedding day.
Here are 6 great nutrition tips which will kick start your pre-wedding skincare journey.
Salmon is low in saturated fat and is a heart-healthy fish. It is the richest in omega-3 compared to other fish varieties. It is an excellent source of proteins, vitamins, and minerals which are required for overall health. Plus the proteins from the salmon are easily digestible and are absorbed by the body quickly. Furthermore, it improves the skin texture, adds some spark to your eyes, and helps to make hair and nails stronger.
Avocado is a unique fruit which is high in healthy fat. They are rich in vitamin C, E, K, B5, B6, potassium, folate and other nutrients. It also protects your skin from environmental damages including the sun because of its high antioxidant content. Plus, it hydrates and makes your skin glow. You can eat it and apply an avocado face pack for added benefits.
3. Multiple colored fruits and veggies
Fruits and vegetables contain little fat and provide complex carbohydrates and other nutrients. Most of them are low in calories and contain natural sugar. Having different colored fruits and vegetables will maximize your nutritional benefits. Some of the colored ones are
• Red - Tomatoes, beetroot, strawberries and cherries
• Orange and yellow - Apricots, papayas, carrots, sweet potato
• Green - Green apples, Kiwi Fruit, spinach, asparagus
• Blue and purple - Blueberries, raisins, eggplant, black salsify
• White and brown - Dates, bananas, cauliflower, mushrooms
4. Dark chocolate
If you are looking for healthy skin and at the same time curb your sugar cravings, then you’re going to love dark chocolates. The presence of cocoa boosts blood circulation helps to draw more nutrients to the skin and protects you from dehydration. Preparing for a wedding can be stressful so eat 2-3 small cubes of dark chocolate daily to reduce the stress hormones in your body. While purchasing, take a look at the ingredients and see if the chocolate has at least 60% of cocoa.
Nuts are one of the best examples of the saying, “Good things always come in small packages.” These small sized nutrition powerhouses are packed with healthy fat, vitamins, proteins and minerals. Almonds, cashew, pistachios, walnuts and peanuts are some of the best nuts which are good for the health of your body and skin. Avoid eating nuts that are roasted in oil. Instead, eat them in a raw or dry roasted format.
6. Green tea
Having a cup of green tea does a lot more than relax you. It has a lot of antioxidants which protects the skin from free radicals. It is also extremely helpful in safeguarding your skin against sunburn and tanning when you apply it topically. It prevents over-stimulation of skin hormones and cures skin problems such as acne and pimples. So instead of drinking coffee, replace it with green tea.
Apart from the above tips here are few other things to include in your regimen
• Cleanse, tone, and moisturize every day. And don’t forget to exfoliate twice a week
• Find a good beauty expert and pamper your skin with facials suitable for your skin type. While you’re at it trim, your split ends too
• Shut your eyes and get some beauty sleep to avoid dark circles
• Wear SPF on your lips, face and body whenever you step outside
• Drink more water and smoothies to detox your body
• Exercise regularly
Women want to look their best every day. But, looking beautiful on their wedding day is something special. So avoid any last minute fiascos and follow these tips to fix your skin. You’ll be ready for your big day where the camera and everyone around will fall in love with your glow.
