And if you are getting married in the summer, you need to take an extra 5% more care of your skin. Skin treatments for brides and their families should be planned at least 6 months before the wedding. One can choose between 6, 4 or 2 months package based on their skin concerns, time schedule and expectations. Benefits

- Permanent hair removal is possible with 2-3 sittings and can be continued after the wedding. This way you can pace out your sittings and do it comfortably post your wedding too!
- Hand & foot treatments. This is extremely important for summer brides as your skin on hands & feet will get pigmented or dull soon as they are always exposed.
- Treatment for cracked heels and feet so that all those pictures of your mehendi look flawless.
- Open pores can be treated by a pore cleansing facial as open pores can led to more problems once your MUA starts applying layers of makeup.
- Booking your MUA and discussing a skin care plan depending on the looks.
- Radiance treatments can start and the following skin issues can be tackled –
- Skin tightening, lines and wrinkles – You can opt for a Micro – pulse treatment or Radiofrequency for skin tightening
- Skin rejuvenation, fine lines, opulence – Imagine a pure oxygen infusion into your skin with serums containing vitamins! Bliss? That’s what Oxygen facial does! This is perfect for brides getting hitched in the summer
- Fine lines, wrinkles, face contouring – We would suggest you opt for this only when you are completely sure and give it time to heal. Yes, we are talking about Botox
- Ideal smile and luscious lips – You can opt for dermal fillers for that pout!
- Opt for something that is already tried and tested. No experiments.
- If your skin is really dehydrated after a night of cocktail and dancing – go for a quick massage. It’ll get your blood pumping and no chance of side effects
- Hydrate – not only water but naariyal paani, nimbu pani or even plain homemade juice.
- While we know it’s impossible, try getting your beauty sleep. If nothing then sneak in a 1-2 hour nap in the day time!
- Even if your wedding is in the summer, wear sunscreen even in the winters!
- If you get a sunburn, apply cool aloe vera gel on it immediately and consult a dermatologist soon.
- Don't travel without a scarf or hat. A heat stroke is what you want to avoid.
- Have a glass of juice/sherbat with soaked sabja seeds (basil seeds) between 10am-3pm to manage your electrolyte levels.
- Eat what suits your skin, not what a fancy celebrity tells you. Eat ghee, it beneficial for your skin and body.
