DO’S & DON’TS DON’T: Try out new home reme­dies even if they seem harm­less. You can have rashes or al­ler­gic re­ac­tions. DO: If you as­pire to try a home rem­edy, make sure you try it out at least a month be­fore the wed­ding. That will give you time to make sure your skin is not sen­si­tive to it. Do not try mul­ti­ple ones the same day or on con­sec­u­tive days.

DON’T: Go for sa­lon fa­cials. Salon­based bri­dal pro­grams can re­ally mess with your skin. While ini­tially you may look brighter, nearly 4050% of the time they can re­sult in zits. And the pesky pim­ples will start erupt­ing just when you can han­dle them the least. Fur­ther­more, the re­sults only last a few days. You want treat­ments that can last even af­ter the wed­ding.

DO: Meet a der­ma­tol­o­gist who will guide you on the fa­cials that will be the most ben­e­fi­cial and ef­fec­tive for your skin, last for a long time and that can make your skin smoother and eas­ier to ap­ply makeup on!

DON’T: Go for long body treat­ments. Many sa­lons rec­om­mend a se­ries of 10-12 ses­sions/ scrubs/ mas­sages to get rid of tan­ning. It takes for­ever and you just don’t have the time or en­ergy to do all that dur­ing this par­tic­u­larly hec­tic time. DO: Get a head-to-toe treat­ment that com­bines di­a­mond mi­cro­der­mabra­sion, peels and light ther­apy for in­stant and long- last­ing re­sults. With just one treat­ment, your tan will be gone and you will save hours of your time.

DON’T: Al­low your makeup artist to share un­clean brushes or use any brand of makeup she or he wants. This may lead to ma­jor re­ac­tions on the skin and spoil not only your wed­ding day but also your skin for a long time to come. Do not try a new brand, or any used prod­uct in the par­lour. DO: Start your makeup tri­als at least a month be­fore the wed­ding, and use the brand of makeup that suits you best. Also, bring your own makeup brushes! This will pro­tect your skin and keep it look­ing flaw­less dur­ing and af­ter the wed­ding!
