1. Beauty vitamins:
Start taking beauty vitamins for longer, shinier hair and glowing skin. Don’t know where to start? Consult a doctor today. The basic ones to be on: Biotin, found in foods like peanut butter and bananas. It helps reduce hair loss and encourages nail growth.The recommended daily intake of biotin is 35 micrograms a day which you can get through your food too. Without iron, your hair can become dull, thin, and dry. Iron is found in foods including spinach, oysters, and cashews but you could take supplements too. Don’t forget Vitamin C – especially for skin.
2. Test a new hair colour:
Thinking about a dramatic change for your wedding? Now is the time to try it out—if you hate it, there’s still plenty of time for you to grow it out or change the colour without frying your locks. Try: Red like Katrina Kaif @ Cannes or a nice brown like Aishwarya Rai. If something, god forbid, goes wrong, then you have time to make a chnage or grow that out.
3. Revive your skincare regimen:
If you’ve been slacking on your skin routine, now is the time to start incorporating a more strict system. Cleanse, tone, target, and moisturize every morning and night—and don’t forget to exfoliate two or three times a week!
4. Fitness and nutrition plan:
Avoid crash dieting before your wedding by starting a fitness and nutrition plan now. You’ll look healthy and glowing on the big day, instead of exhausted and weak. First things first, track your food intake via My Fitness Pal and add in the new Nike Training App.
5. Hair and makeup trials:
Start experimenting with different hair and makeup styles, as well as different artists. Then, book them right after you’ve made up your mind—you don’t want run the risk of conflicting schedules or last-minute changes. Every one of WMG vendors will do a run-through with you.
Before Two Months
1. Beauty accessories:
Select any beauty accessories, like hair accessories or customized lipstick colours, now. Make sure you make-up kit is ready with the products you need for touch-ups – that is after your consultation with the makeup artist and hair person.
2. Teeth whitening:
Most professional teeth whitening sessions take more than one appointment. Book your first appointment now, and use an at-home whitening kit after your last session to maintain your pearly whites. The last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is sensitive teeth.
3. Identifying a Facialist + Dermatologist for more:
Botox takes a few days to kick in and usually lasts a few months. If you’re considering it, do it now to make sure you can correct any potential issues. Find a facialist and start your regime, go once every month for chemical peels, photo facials and lasers for face and hair removal. Also finish up with hair removal lasers as soon as possible. Our founder Mehak got you the deets on this.
4. Kick fitness regimen into full gear:
Take your fitness regimen to the next level at the two-month mark—add an extra thirty minutes of gym time each day, or start a weekend yoga class.
Before Two Weeks: Follow-ups and Maintenance!
1. Hair gloss, trim, and subtle colour:
Get a colour-enhancing gloss treatment at your salon for shiny locks on your wedding day, and trim any split ends while you’re there. Get a hair cut and make sure you grow into the length you want.
If you haven’t already, start exfoliating your body at least two to three times a week. Try a gentle body scrub that sloughs off dead skin cells without stripping your skin of moisture. Keep your face in check with exfoliation – once a week. Also, shrink your pores so try Microdermabrasion.
3. Nail care:
Keep your nails without colour for 2 weeks because they will recover from all the fatigue. It’s always good to then get a manicure and put them together two days before the wedding.
Before One Week
1. Gentle facial:
A week before your wedding, go in for a soothing, hydrating facial at a dermatologist. Test for allergies before-hand.
Get your brows waxed, threaded, or shaped at the one week mark—tweeze any stray hairs at least one day before your wedding to avoid redness. Bold brows are in – Cara Delevingne showed us what big brows can do.
Get waxed at least five days before the big day so your skin has time to heal. Apply coconut oil on your legs, even Baby oil works wonders to soothe irritation.
Before Three Days
1. At-home skin treatment:
Do a mild at-home peel to boost brightness a few days before. Note: A professional chemical peel is too harsh to do only a few days before your wedding, so make sure to go in at least two weeks earlier if you plan on going to the dermatologist. Just do a touch-up now.
2. Mask It Up:
If you have oily skin, try a purifying clay mask. If your skin is dry, use a hydrating mask to moisturize and plump. We love the GlamnGlow Mud Packs that are supposed to work wonders.
3. Hot Oil:
Go for a hot oil massage for your hair so it keeps your hair healthy and add a frizz-free treatment before-hand.
Request a gel polish to avoid any chips and cracks on your big day. Set it up to a day before your mehendi.
The Day Before
1. Beauty sleep:
The best thing you can do at this point is to get some shut-eye—you’ve done your work, now take some time to relax (or at least try to). So you can avoid dark circles.
Drink lots of water the day before to ensure you and your skin are hydrated.
3. Exfoliate your lips:
Keep them scrubbed with a sugar scrub and liverally use lip balm as a pre-lipstick ritual.
4. Hair Prep:
Wash your hair before-hand and sleep it out. Yeah, you don’t do it on the d-day.
The Big Day
1. Keep blotting papers handy so you can blot excess makeup and oil throughout!
2. Don’t keep touching your face. Go through the usual cleansing-toning-moisturising routine.
3. A salt scrub can soften elbows so do it on the day of the wedding. This prepping is perfect for d-day.
4. Use SPF on your lips + face + body but especially on your lips.
