Looking Your Best on Your Wedding Day
Wedding Beauty Regime
All brides want to look fresh, radiant and beautiful on their wedding day. Looking great takes effort and does not happen overnight. So it is necessary to make the effort to take care of yourself well before your wedding day. Here are some tips to help you do just that!
Soft and Smooth Lips
Soft and supple lips can make a person look very attractive. A smear of Vaseline or honey on your lips at night will give them the soft and supple look the next day. Once a week, gently brush your lips using a toothbrush and warm water. Do this in a circular motion. Brushing your lips will help remove dead cells and make them softer. Alternatively, you can buy a lip scrub.
Taking Care of Your Feet
After a long tiring day, soak your feet in a basin of warm water mixed with a handful of fragrant bath salts. After 10 minutes, wash your feet (using a simple soap and water wash is sufficient). It will make you feel better, refreshed.
Liberally apply Vaseline (or a similar cream) to your feet and use a soak before you go to bed. In the morning, the skin on your feet will be soft and moist.
Once a week, take a foot filer and scrub your heels. Using a toothpick, clean the edges and grooves around your toenails to remove any dirt that has accumulated. Apply cold cream or moisturiser before winding up. This will make the skin soft and prevent people from running away at the sight of your feet!
Eyes are the windows to the soul. The area around your eyes is very sensitive and requires special attention. Using eye cream is necessary as the area around the eyes is usually
tthe first to get wrinkles. Remember to treat the area very gently; never rub too hard around the eyes.
Black circles and wrinkles can be prevented by applying vitamin A or retinol-enriched eye cream. Vitamin A repairs the skin and makes it look younger. Creams containing vitamin C are also good as they can stimulate the growth of collagen and thus battle early signs of aging. For tired or puffy eyes, place a cotton pad soaked in chilled rose water across your brow and over your eyes. Also, keep thin slices of cucumber ready in the refrigerator for placing over your eyes.
Applying pure castor oil to your eyebrows and lashes, particularly those who have scanty growth, will make them grow thicker and longer.
