Marriage is one of the most important and happiest moments in a girl’s life. Every girl wants to look the best on her wedding day. Being the star of the wedding, looks, upkeep, and health of the bride hold the utmost importance on the wedding day. Now, let’s have a look at 7 important pre-wedding beauty care tips for the bride-to-be, which can be done easily from anywhere.
Ensure sufficient hydration by drinking an adequate amount of water. Daily intake of at least 2 litres of water not only improves general health, detoxify and energise us but also makes our skin healthy and glowing.
Routine Cleansing and Moisturisation
Make a skin cleansing as well as moisturising routine and always follow it. Proper cleansing will exfoliate the skin, increasing its breathing, and make the pores less visible by removing dirt, blackheads, etc. Daily moisturisation will make skin smoother and supple, making us younger by bringing out the natural glow of our skin.
Home-made skin exfoliating and moisturizing cleanser
Mix gram flour powder with thick curd and concentrated juice of one or half lemon. Gently rub and apply the mix evenly on face/body as per need. Relax after leaving this mix for a maximum of 10 minutes. Wash it off with water.
Hair Care Regimen
Health and beauty of hair play a major role in our looks. Combing hair twice a day from scalp to tips with a clean brush continuously for 20 minutes will bring out the natural oil on the scalp which is the best for hair growth and to prevent hair fall as well as damage. Keeping a routine for applying herbal oils as well as daily hair wash will cleanse as well as rejuvenate the cells on the scalp, accelerating hair growth by making them healthier. Gently massaging the scalp during hair bath is another excellent, simple tip to increase hair growth.
Home-made herbal hair oil
Put hibiscus petals and leaves to heated coconut oil. Continue heating and stir well. Switch off the flame after the mix blends finely, and then let it cool down. Apply on the scalp with massage before bath. After that, washing hair using a home-made shampoo will give the best results.

Shining nails add to our beauty and looks. The beauty of nails depends on its health and for this, always remember to keep the nails dry and clean to prevent bacteria, infection, etc.. Keeping nails properly cut, and paying attention to clean hands are two important things in maintaining nail health. Nails need to be handled gently because scrubbing roughly and digging deep inside them will invite infections. Take a break from nail polish or art for a chosen period to keep it all-natural.
Nail care at home
Rub little sunflower/virgin coconut/almond/olive oil on nails and leave it. The routine application will ensure nail health and make them shine.
Health is the key to beauty and is determined by eating right. Ensure proper nutrition through a balanced diet as per personal preferences. A balanced diet includes a sufficient amount of carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, as well as micro-nutrients. The health of skin, hair, nails, and body depends on diet and plays a decisive role in beauty. If you want to shed weight, don’t go for crash dieting; it can make you look dull and tired on your ‘D’ day. So, follow a balanced diet and be healthy to become a glowing, energetic bride. Take expert care if you see these signs even after a proper diet :

- Dull and extra dry skin
- Feeling overly tired
- Brittle / spoon-shaped nails, white spots / horizontal lines on nails
