Pre Bridal Skin Glowing Tips

For a bride, her wedding day is the most memorable day of her life. She will savor every moment of that precious occasion. So looking beautiful is the first thing that a bride will want. But beauty without a glowing skin is listless. So invariably, an appointment with a beautician and a hairstylist is made within days. However, in addition to that the bride can do her bit for her skin. So here’s a list of a few things a bride can do to add dazzle to her radiant skin.

Cleanse your skin thoroughly

It is very necessary that you clean your skin thoroughly. In accordance with one’s skin type, a bride should use a cleanser. Cleanse your face in the morning before taking a bath. Apply a moisturizer to keep your skin smooth and moist. This will help you reduce black heads or white heads and will also keep your skin silky smooth.

Get a proper diet


The pre-wedding days are hectic and stressful. You want everything to be perfect which might lead to loss of sleep and sloppy food intake. So get a proper diet chart made. What you eat will have it’s ramifications on your appearance; so be extremely careful about it. Also have ample sleep. Every bride needs her beauty sleep to feel rejuvenated and fresh like a daisy on her wedding day. Drink 10-12 glasses of water everyday and substantiate your meal intake with proper blend of fruits and vegetables. Try to release any kind of tensions through mediation or yoga. These are the best ways to release the stress you might be feeling.

Use home made face packs

You can go in for homemade face packs prepared with stuff like gram flour, curd and others to get a soft and effective skin care.
  • Apply gram flour mixed with curd on your face. It will not only soften the tan that you might have acquired due to your work related commitments but also make your skin supple and beautiful.
  • You an also try using a mix of honey and glycerin for your face and body.  They accentuate the lithe look.
  • Mix turmeric powder and milk; apply it on your face and body daily. It gives an internal glow to the skin.

Skin treatments, if need be

Though there are many home remedies to uplift and brighten your skin, for extreme cases brides can opt for special skin care treatments. Say for example, if you suffer from regular bouts of acne, it is advisable to check out a dermatologist before you go in for a beautician. Acnes generally are the signs of improper digestion. There are various skin care facilities that not only help you understand where your skin is faltering but also present you with the various remedies to rectify it.

Essential tips to remember
  • Avoid junk or fried foods
  • Avoid undue stress
  • Eat a nutrients rich diet
  • Limit your beverage intake.
  • Use sunscreen lotion whenever necessary.

Can Anti Wrinkle Face Creams Combat Skin Dullness?



Skin dullness is a problem that can occur at any age. There was a time when you could not do much about the lack of radiance and any product that you used only ended up making the skin look oily, if not more dull. One of the primary causes of skin dullness is the piling up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. It stops light from being reflected, causing the typically dull appearance that women dread. Exfoliating skin can take care of the problem to some extent, but it may not always help.

Why use anti wrinkle face creams?


Many women experience skin dullness due to a combination of factors, such as accumulation of dead skin cells, overexposure to UV rays, and a tendency for the skin to lose moisture. Anti wrinkle face creams, such as Hydroxatone AM/ PM, have shown to benefit women in these cases. This product increases skin hydration in women, regardless their age. It improves texture and radiance of skin.

Treating other signs of sun damage

For women experiencing multiple problems including dullness, anti wrinkle face creams like Hydroxatone have shown positive results. This product reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and redness. It also improves the overall appearance of skin, as reported by women in a clinical study.

Hydroxatone risk free trial is your chance to experience the benefits of this product. Please visit Hydroxatone to learn more.

Miracle Skin Transformer Revival Mud

Miracle Skin Transformer became an overnight blockbuster product. It enhances skin and makes it look flawless. Now the brand that brought you this wonderful product brings you a breakthrough 5-in1 skin enhancer that is designed to hydrate, prime, enhance, illuminate and protect your skin in one step. This fabulous ‘miracle’ leaves skin smooth, glowing and airbrushed in seconds.

Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 FACE Spotlight contains pearlized mineral pigments that illuminate skin to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. It minimizes the appearance of pore size and uneven skin tone. This amazing product also hydrates to nourish the skin Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 FACE Spotlight_swatchand provide anti-aging benefits. A SPF of 20 protects against UVA/UVB rays and any sun damage. It comes in an universal shade that is infused with the same skin saving vitamins, anti-oxidants and natural actives as Miracle Skin Transformer FACE SPF20 and also acts to hydrate and nourish skin while also delivering powerful anti-aging benefits.

The first thing I noticed about this product is how shimmery it is. I personally love that about it. I adore anything that makes my face shimmer. It illuminates the skin and makes it glow. The shade is a little too dark for my skin, as you can see from the photo on the left. So what I do is actually apply it and use a very light shade of powder on top to kind of even out the color. It has a sheer to light coverage, just enough to add some glow to the skin. It does help even out the skin tone and it really does hydrate the skin. My skin felt much more hydrated after I applied it. The sunscreen in this is chemical and mineral (octinoxate 7.5%, octisalate 5.0%, oxybenzone 2.0% and zinc oxide 3.0%). With a SPF 20 it is just enough to help protect against UVA/UVB rays. Personally I prefer a SPF 30 in all of my products. The anti-aging ingredients are: M3 complex (saw palmetto and passionfruit extracts), Vitamin A, Vitamin E, CoEnzyme Q10 and EcoPhysalis. These are all powerful anti-oxidants, they help protect against free radical damage to the skin. EcoPhysalis also helps even out the skin tone.

Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 FACE Spotlight look 1

I think that Miracle Skin Transformer SPF FACE Spotlight is a very nice product that does what it says it is going to do: illuminate, hydrate, protect, prime and enhance. My only issue was the color. For me that is generally always an issue because I have an extremely fair skin tone. If your skin tone is not as light as mine you will do fine with this product. I think that all of the Miracle Skin Transformer line is great. I have reviewed many of the products and love all of them. Here are my reviews of the Miracle Skin Transformer products: the new Miracle Balm (http://bit.ly/1mINTFs); Miracle Revival Mud (http://bit.ly/1i0h1CN); Advanced Peptide Lip Treatment (http://bit.ly/N0X1EJ); Lip Rewind (http://bit.ly/1i0hbdo); Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 (http://bit.ly/1fQ6Kuw); Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish (http://bit.ly/1i4wZfW) Treat and Conceal (http://bit.ly/1loYm4l) and Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 (http://bit.ly/OdjtLO).

94. “In order to keep eyeliner from running and smearing, opt for liner formulas that offer stayproof wearability.”- Robin Schoen, Urban Decay Makeup Artist



93. Always allow about two fingers from your nose to where blush starts.

92. “Make sure you hydrate the skin and put on a primer”- Jessie Powers, makeup artist and national educator for Make Up For Ever

91. “Balance out your shimmer. If youre doing a shimmery eye, do matte lips”- Raychel Wade, founder of Cheek to Chic and La Prairie’s colour ambassador

90. Brush out your curls with your fingers to give your hair a more tousled look.

89. To make your manicure last, apply a thin layer of clear every two days.

88. Wear white eyeliner to make eyes appear less red.

82. For fuller lips, extend the lip line using a flesh tone lip liner. Be careful not to go overboard!

81. The #1 reason for flaky mascara is that the formula is too dry or old. Make sure to close mascara after use to help keep its moisture.

80. To fake clear skin when you notice a pimple, “Apply tea tree oil as soon as you spot it”- Stephanie Flor, makeup artist

76. Sunscreens that claim to provide “all-day protection” and “water resistance” are not reliable; don’t be fooled by these claims and reapply all sunscreens at least every two to three hours.

74. “If you’re afraid of red lipstick, I love putting it on and then blotting it off to wear it as more of a stain”- Pat McGrath, makeup artist

70. To make curls last, make sure hair is completely dry before you begin with the curling iron.

69. To make a zit go away faster, don’t pick at it. The bacteria on your fingeres will create more redness.

68. Use an exfoliater to get rid of dead skin but limit yourself to 2-3 times a week so you don’t dry out your skin.

67. Always wash your makeup off before bed. “That morning-after look has never been a good one, for anyone”- Rachel Adler, beauty director Beautyhigh.com

66. “Too much bronzer is a nightmare for pale skin”- Jason Ascher, resident beauty expert for Barneys New York. Opt for an illuminating cream or light powder to get a glow.

65. Pick a sulfate-free shampoo, as sulfates can be harsh and drying on the hair cuticle.

64. If you have greasy hair, avoid directly conditioning roots and condition from your ear down to ends.

63.”When you wear a red lip it’s important that it stays exactly where you put it. Using a long wearing lip pencil to create the perfect shape and a lip color are key to having a perfect red lip.”-Kristofer Buckle, celebrity makeup artist

62. To make volume last all day, avoid running your fingers through hair. “Oil from your hands can weigh down your roots leaving your hair flat at the end of the day”-Tatum Neill, Arrojo Studio

61. Try to avoid washing your hair everyday. Constant shampooing leaves hair dry and your scalp will create more oils to compensate for the loss of moisture.

60. Always use a moisturizer with SPF in the morning. Even in the winter!

59.”Go for a trim every 6-8 weeks to ensure you have no damaged ends making your hair look unhealthy”- Nick Arrojo, Arrojo Studio (and the man who worked for seven years changing lives on What Not To Wear)
