While it is normal for brides to try to look their best on their wedding day, a common bridal beauty blunder is that soon-to-be-brides tend to do too many only days before their wedding day.

With a little care and diligence, Let us help you to avoid this disaster as we pamper you through our list of Beauty Secrets from head to toe!

8. Have regular skin exfoliation months before your Wedding Day
Introduce Pure Retinol or AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) into your skincare routine to tighten your pores and have a visibly smoothened and refined skin texture. Consult your dermatologist about it.
Use a manual exfoliating scrub for a brighter complexion. Remove any dead skin cells gently. Avoid having abrasive facial treatments two weeks before your wedding.
You would not want to have a chemical peel as it will only make your face peeling away halfway through your wedding.

10. Treat yourself to an Exfoliation Treatment
Exfoliate your body 2–3 times a week to slough away dry skin. Prep with a creamy scrub for that softer and smoother skin.
11. Take Care of your Pearly Whites and Smile
Smiling never failed to make anybody more beautiful. Have a cleaning session with your dentist and brighten up your smile.
You may use white strips in lightening your teeth. For homemade teeth whitening, you may just add baking soda and lemon to produce a DIY Teeth bleach.
12. Prepare for Makeup Touchups
During the reception, you will have lots of wedding toasts, guest smooches, kisses with your new husband and wedding cakes.
Make sure to prepare a tube for yourself of a lip color that you’ve settled on for touch ups. If you’ve got oily skin, use a setting powder to keep your complexion smooth and shine free.

If you want to explore different hairstyles and hair colors, do it months before your wedding day. Avoid any drastic changes weeks before your wedding day.
If you want to have something extra, have a shine treatment.
14. Get your Locks healthy and Have a Hair Treatment
To have visibly silky strands, use a deep conditioning hair treatment.
If you are going to don an updo, have your hair washed the day before your wedding so that it would hold up better during your big day.

15. From taking care of your beloved hair, Say Goodbye to your Unwanted hair
Have a waxing session! Have the areas that needed waxing, at least, one week before your Wedding day to avoid any inflammation and redness on the day itself. Use a Recovery Skin Salve post-treatment, if necessary, to speed up the soothing process.
When having your brows shaped, be sure not to have drastic changes such as too thin. Should there be any stray hairs on your Wedding day, just simply pluck them with tweezers.
16. Nail care
Indulge yourself with a Luxurious Manicure and Pedicure. Since a gel manicure chips away for up to two weeks, it is best that you have your manicure and pedicure a few days before your wedding.
17. Don’t neglect your Beauty Rest
Although wedding jitters could cause you to miss out on enough sleep before your wedding day, it is still advisable that you doze off for the entire 8 hours before it to have that fresh beauty glow.

Keep yourself moisturized and hydrated. Drink plenty of water. Not only will it get you hydrated, but this beauty secret could also help you keep the eyebags away.
