The clock is ticking!
So, you have made it through the rishta process and your wedding dates have been confirmed! A year from now, you should have the best looking hair, nails and skin on your wedding day. Here are some things to consider for your care treatment routine:
Stress weakens the immune system! There is no need to panic or stress out! There is a lot of time to manage everything, but at first you have to make sure to manage your stress. Anxiety, insomnia and stress can affect your complexion as well as form dark circles. Set up an appointment with your dermatologist and devise a schedule to follow for your skin. Keep up the healthy eating habits. They are a natural resource for getting a healthy skin. You should also start your waxing routine so by the time of the wedding, you won’t have to worry about the growth. Or better, get a laser treatment.
Start going for regular facials from a reputable salon. Do not go overboard with all the treatments, as they tend to tire down your skin cells. Plan a healthy meal plan along with regular exercise that will not only improve your self-esteem but also give you a glowing skin. Your hair too need the treatment, and there are several keratin treatments that you can go through. But make sure to try months in advance to make sure that it works for you. Now is the perfect time to go to the dentist for getting that perfect smile! You could even go for braces so visit your dentist to discuss what options you have.
The dead cells on your skin can give you a dull appearance, so regularly exfoliate to get rid of them. Start with exfoliating once every week and then increase to twice per week. If you are sure about getting your hair coloured, start by planning the shades that would look good on you. Stylists usually advise two shades of your natural hair colour so the result doesn’t look very overboard. You should have enough time to know that the final colour is good enough, in case it needs any changing or touch ups. Do not over-shampoo as it dulls your hair and fades the colour. Three to four times a week is more than enough. Limit sugar intake for clearer skin and weight loss. You don’t want to have that extra fat that will make you regret every chocolate you ate for the rest of your life!
Increase your juice intake! You don’t want a dehydrated body that will eventually make your skin go dry. Use a cleansing mask once or twice a week to round off your facial routine. This is also the time to get regular manicures, so the ring on your wedding day will give them an extra glow! Moisturize your hands and feet every night before going to bed. Start making appointments with your make-up artist, hair stylist, photographer and check on your tailor for all your wedding dresses. By this time, you should know what your dress will look like; continue with your weight loss regime. Exercise, go for a morning and evening walk, and keep your calorie intake to 500 per day. Do not skip conditioning your hair! You can even go for conditioning treatments. If you have oily hair, use your natural oil to condition your scalp. This will help get rid of the dandruff too!
Meet up with your make-up artist to have a trial run because you need to be sure of what would look good on you. You don’t want any mistakes on the main day! Take time out to visit your dentist for a teeth whitening procedure. It takes s under an hour to get that perfect white smile you want for your wedding!
By this time, you should be completely used to your routine. Every appointment should be finalized and your wedding dresses should be with you. You should have enough time to check if any alterations are required on them. Your hair should get the final trim and tick off everything to see if you have left off anything.
Final moments for all your hard work! Make sure to get a good night’s sleep so you don’t get any puffiness in the morning. Pack an emergency kit before leaving the house!
Finally, the big day! You still don’t need to panic. You have prepared everything in advance and just need to get ready. Eat a healthy breakfast because it’s a long day ahead. Step in the salon, and brace yourself to get ready for a stunning bridal makeover!
The day you have been waiting for! Follow the countdown to enjoy your wedding to the fullest!
