Having perfect skin can help you to feel at your most beautiful on your special day. If you don’t want to have to go out and buy a range of expensive products to help you look your best, you can turn to more natural solutions which will help your skin to look more radiant. So if you’re looking for natural bridal beauty, here are three of our top tips.
- 1. Your Own Natural Exfoliator
Making your own natural dermabrasion is easy when you have the recipe. Even better, your own home-made exfoliator will only contain natural ingredients, while chemical, manufactured solutions could contain things that could irritate your skin, leaving it looking red and angry.
You’ll be surprised at how simple the basic recipe is; it only contains two main ingredients:
- Baking soda
The baking soda acts as your exfoliator, removing dead skin cells, leaving behind a glowing, youthful face. You can add whatever natural ingredients you desire to this basic recipe. Some common ones are:
- Olive oil
Remember, only exfoliate two or three times a week as it can really dry out your skin if you do it too often. To protect you against dry skin, you’ll need a nourishing moisturiser like the one below.
2. A Home Made Moisturiser
A penetrating yet gentle moisturiser is essential if you want to your skin to look young and fresh, as well as protecting it against dryness and wrinkles. This tip is simple and only requires you to have one ingredient: extra virgin olive oil.
First, open your pores with a hot damp cloth, and then rub the high quality oil into your skin. Finally, place your warm cloth over your face and allow the oil to be absorbed into your pores. Remove the cloth and rinse. The result will be moisturised skin that will last for days.
3. Banish Your Blackheads
Blackheads have the potential to make your skin look a little bit worse for wear – not ideal on your wedding day. To rectify this problem, squeeze lemon juice into a bowl and combine it with witch hazel. Wipe your blackheads gently to remove them. If you use a warm compress, your pores will open up and the process will be easier.
So there you have it, three natural solutions to achieving perfect-looking skin for your wedding day. If you’re not confident about making your own beauty products, you could go to a reputable store like The Urban Retreat Beautique who will be able to help you.
