The wedding day is special to every bride maybe that is one of the reasons brides are not afraid to spend any amount of money on their beauty regimens.
But do you know the fact that going for beauty treatments just days before the wedding is not enough to attain the wedding glow? You need to prepare the skin for the wedding day at least months before the wedding.
Your skin shows what you eat, so stay away from fatty and oily food. You should add certain power foods such as dark leafy green vegetables, fibres and fatty fish etc to your diet.
But if you already have clogged pores then you need to follow the CTM (cleansing, toning and moisturising) routine to keep your skin fresh. Pores on your face could get clogged with dead skin cells, dirt and oil. It would result in blackheads and acne. So you need to clean them often to have a healthy skin.
You need to regularly wash your face before going to sleep as it would help to remove all the oil and dirt from your pores. For that, you need to religiously follow the CTM procedure.
First, clean your face with a cleanser or a face wash if you are not that fond of makeup. While both serves the purpose of cleaning a face wash is a foaming cleanser which needs to be washed off with water, a cleanser is a non-foaming type that needs to be wiped off the face. If you are someone who uses makeup on an everyday basis and is exposed to dust then you should first use a cleanser to remove the makeup and then use a face wash to remove deep set pollutants from your face.
Those who have dry and sensitive skin also should follow this cleanser, face wash procedure. Don't forget to pick the cleanser and face wash that suits your skin type.
Next is the toner. It is a water-based product that contains ingredients that would help to remove excess dirt and also closes the pores. It would also prepare your skin for makeup. Earlier, there was a notion that toner is necessary only for acne-prone skin, but present day toners are made for various skin types. But make sure that the product you selected is alcohol-free.
So after you complete the cleaning procedure apply a small amount of toner to a soft cotton pad and gently wipe it across your face and neck. It would remove the excess dirt and make your pores appear smaller. Always avoid the area around your eyes while applying toner.
Mist type toners are also available in the market these days, you only need to spray it all over your face and then gently wipe the face with a cotton ball. They help to bind the moisture to your skin. Sometimes it is also found that it would help to prevent in growing of hair.
After the toning procedure, you should apply a moisturiser that suits your skin type to prevent dryness and cracking. It is like pampering your skin. A good moisturiser would keep your skin soft and nourishes it.
