They say that your skin is an asset that should be invested in, for it represents you for a really long time. And for all the brides-to-be out there, having great skin is just another plus point. This allows you to boast a more natural, ‘no makeup’ look. After all, it’s all about minimal looks and intimate weddings these days. Intimate weddings have become the ‘new normal’ in the current scenario with the outspread of the coronavirus pandemic. However, intimate weddings are a great way to embrace all things natural be it your location, makeup, or decor & enjoy with just those few who really matter.
That being said, brides who have amazing skin don’t require a lot of heavy lifting in terms of makeup. They can go ahead and show off an everyday gorgeous look thanks to that amazing glow, which comes from the most basic day and night time skincare routines! Since now most of us have the luxury of staying at home, why not use this time to give your skin the much-needed nourishment it requires the right routine and right kind of products? Make the most of this time to give yourself a chance to step out as the most gorgeous bride with the most flawless skin on your big day.
However, the big question that everyone has with respect to skincare routines is whether CTM (Cleansing, Toning & Moisturizing) is enough, or do we need something extra for that desired glowing skin? Now, the answer to this question may be long, branching out at every specific detail. But to assist you with everything for your wedding, we did our research and curated a specific skincare routine that will aid you for years to come. This Morning to Night skincare routine will give your skin a boost and help you own a super-gorgeous bridal glow on your wedding day!
Whether it’s your beauty or fitness goals, mornings are the best time of the day to dedicate to yourself. When it comes to skincare, your morning routine should not just have the basic CTM, but also a few steps further to protect your skin from sun damage, pollution, etc. Here are the steps you should follow:
Kickstart your day with a splash of water and the right face wash. A face cleanser that suits your skin type must be used to wake up your skin. Plus, you need to ensure that the face wash that you use should be hydrating and moisturizing which helps improve your skin’s texture and doesn’t clog any pores.
Most of us tend to skip this one assuming that toners are harsh on the skin. However, we cannot emphasise enough on this step. Toners are extremely beneficial for your skin. Different toners serve different purposes. Hence, it is important to choose the right one as per your skin concerns. All of them, however, are designed to rejuvenate your skin from the damages caused over the years. We suggest that you look for toners that have ingredients like Vitamin C that brightens dull and uneven skin and also maintain the pH balance of your skin. And if the product is plant-based and cruelty-free then it’s just another cherry on the cake!
Dermatologists suggest that it is vital to apply eye cream at least twice a day, starting in your 20s. They argue that improving the skin quality in this area early in your life ensures that the eyelid skin does not easily lose its laxity and smooth appearance later on. ( Pro Tip: Don’t miss out grabbing and wearing those sunglasses whenever you step out in the sun to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays). It’s best if you use a product that is rich in Hyaluronic acid, which hydrates, and is free from ingredients like sulphates and parabens.
We’ve all been troubled by hyperpigmentation and dark spots at some point in our lives. And the struggle to get rid of them is totally understood. So, for this, we recommend the Cream For Hyperpigmentation & Dark Spots. Not only is it paraben-free, but also enriched with Vitamin E. This cream is your answer to how to prevent hyperpigmentation and dark patches on skin and evens out skin tone.
Everyone needs a moisturizer, even if your skin is oily. Dermatologists, often, advise applying a moisturizer when your skin is still a little damp to lock in the hydration. For those with oily to normal skin, an oil-free moisturiser that renders a natural glow and hydration, sans oiliness would be the best.
Never skip sunscreen. That’s the one thing we’ve always heard people say and it’s true. The last step in your daytime skincare routine is to apply sunscreen. This will help shield your skin from the harmful UVA & UVB rays. Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF, like Re’equil Oxybenzone Free Sunscreen which has SPF 50 that is non-greasy on application. Also, ensure that you reapply your sunscreen every few hours, for long-lasting sun protection. Here’s a great option that gives you a velvety feel and acts as a primer under your make up too.
The skincare we do during the morning is important to bring freshness to your skin. However, it’s the skincare we do at night where you get to really pamper and relax your skin. It is very important to have a skincare routine during the night when your skin has time to absorb the benefits that your products have to offer!
You go through a lot throughout the day and so does your skin. It is often exposed to pollution, dirt, and much more. Hence, it becomes essential to clean your skin and take off whatever makeup you’ve worn during the day. At night, you will need a stronger cleanser that has the goodness of natural extracts, which can not just cleanse, but totally takes off all the dirt away and clears away your pores.
Toning is a must as stated in the morning skincare routine. The only difference in the benefits of toners during this time of the day is that your skin gets much more time to soak in the essence of these toners. Many people prefer replacing toners with essential oils or boosters at night. But we highly suggest that you don’t skip this step, and tone your face after cleansing.
Your eye cream becomes your best friend at night. After a long day of staring at your phone and laptop screens, your eyes will thank you for some hydration. They’ll be more than helpful at night in order to get rid of dark circles, especially if you have your entire sleep time to absorb the product. Using an eye cream with Quinoa Seed Extract and antioxidants will not only heal the puffiness and dark circles around your eyes but also protect the sensitive skin from the effects of other skincare products.
It is important to note that your day and night moisturizers are different. Night moisturizers or creams are usually heavier, for at night, your skin has time to absorb the cream better. Maintaining high water content in the skin is the key to healing and maintaining healthy skin! So, we suggest you get your hands on a cream-like Re’equil’s Ceramide & Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser, which will strengthen the skin’s natural lipid barrier by overnight absorption.
This is your basic night-time routine. For a more effective result, you can try face masks, which can either be store-bought or DIY face masks. Just ensure that you do them only once a week, after your toner and before your moisturizer.
