My Pre-Wedding Skincare Routine

 

Hey everyone!

This was a much requested post by many of you in the days leading up to the wedding. Because of all the hustle and bustle of moving and wedding prep, I didn’t get a chance to do this post. I don’t have all the products which I was using back then with me at the moment  but I have listed all of them out. Hope you find this post useful!

My skin has been in good shape for a while now so I didn’t undergo any treatments in the months leading up to the wedding. I didn’t have any major issues with acne or pigmentation that needed attention so I just stuck to a good skincare routine – twice a day at home. Along with that, I ensured I had at least 3 liters of water and trust me, that is super important for clear skin!

I have combination skin with an oily T-zone but prone to dehydration during winters. I get occasional breakouts but my skin is not overly sensitive. What I needed was a routine that kept my skin hydrated and radiant. Here are the products I was using (about 1-1.5 months before the wedding) –

 

MORNING ROUTINE –

 

1. Cleansing : Cosmedic Avederm*/Vivel*

I switched to soap-free cleansers as they work best during winter months for me. I have reviewed the Cosmedic Avederm cleanser here which is quite gentle and mild, I really like it. I was alternating it with the new Vivel Cell Renew Pollution Protect Face Wash which is quite gentle as well (other pros – smells good and is very affordable!).

 

Exfoliation : About 2-3 times a week, I was using a gentle scrub instead of the face wash to cleanse. I was initially using Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Scrub which is an excellent gentle affordable scrub. My skin felt soft and radiant after using it each time. Once I finished it up, I switched to The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion which is really good. I am still using it twice a week and it keeps my skin soft and supple.
