The key is to refrain from experimentation of any sort and we're to provide a simple guide for you to follow for the wedding season.
5 Skincare Products And Treatments You Should Avoid Before Your Wedding
1. Adding New "Viral" Products Days Before Your Wedding
Social media trends and hacks come and go. Yes, that instant glow is desirable for that dewy bridal but if it is not advised by your skin expert, do not use it no matter what the claims are. Don't break the pattern since your skin is well accustomed to it and may cause a reaction when a new product is introduced to the skin that it does not recognize.
2. Avoid Bleaching Facials
Many confuse skin brightening with skin lightening and often grab the closest bleaching agent to get that glow on. While skin bleaches have been used by women for ages, it does not mean that they will suit you too. The last thing you need is a burn mark on your face resulting from a facial gone wrong.
3. New Natural Home Remedies
Natural DIY face packs have a misconception of being completely safe but that is sadly not true. Allergic reactions are extremely common caused by face packs made at home as a result of the unknown/harmful properties of the products. So, don't listen to your neighbourhood aunty blindly when she tells you all the easily available kitchen ingredients you can use for an "instant glow."
4. Avoid Facial Peels
Under the supervision of a skin expert, facial peels are considered quite safe. The process of removing dead cells through peels results in naturally glowing skin quicker than most procedures, owing to its popularity. Although comparatively safe, even specialists recommend it to be done well in advance to avoid any scope of inflammation, burning, itchiness, etc.
5. Avoid Fragrant Products
It's true that many haircare and skincare products smell amazing and you may get carried away by it. Often times these fragrances are chemicals that create an imbalance in the pH level of the skin. You know what that means - pimples, spots and blemishes - and that's going to be a no, thank you from our side.
We hope these tips help you in figuring out what's not to be done before your wedding.
