The Beauty Budget Guide for Brides-To-Be: Tips for skin care

Since our last episode was about hair care, now, comes one of the most important areas – skin care.

As we all know, skin care takes a long time to maintain or to improve current skin condition.

It is recommended that you start taking care of your skin intensively at least from 3-6 months time. Set a little budget for saloon service at least once a month, and the rest will be home-care.

Morning/ Night Skin Care:

For the brides to be, I would recommend to use hydration or brightening skincare range to get the glowing skin on the big day.

Hydrating skin care:

For hydrating skin care, I would recommend Laneige Hydra Bank Set, my set is running low soon, and I am thinking to continue another set. :) It doesn’t break the bank and it delivers result!

Brightening skin care:

If you have a little to splurge, you can try for Clarins White Plus HP Sea Lily Enriched range.

After taking care of your skin day and night, you need some extra to boost the results too.  Frequent use of masks can seriously help to improve your skin condition a lot. Now, let’s see the mask types you can easily get in the market.

Sleeping masks:

It is better to use at least once or twice of sleeping mask a week to retain the moisture in your skin. Apply all your skincare at night as per usual, then slap on a layer of sleeping mask and you are done. The next morning you will have soft and supple skin.

Deep Cleansing Masks:

If you have oily/combination skin, it is best to use deep cleansing mask at least once a week to keep your skin clean and clear. It works even better for congested skin. But be careful if you have sensitive skin.

Hydrating Mask:

Hydrating masks are highly recommended, and can be used 2-3x per week to maintain the optimum moisture in your skin. If you always suffer from chapped lips, you can even use Clarins Hydraquench Cream Mask as lip mask to  repair the chapped skin.

Sheet Masks:

Sheet masks are most probably the easiest mask to buy and to try out which one suits your skin best.  It is better in the sense that is is so convenient and you can have a variety – from whitening, deep-cleansing, hydrating, soothing to even firming.  Sheet mask usually is <RM10/pc for the average brands. Do it diligently and you will be able to see results.

Next instalment will be body care :)

great tip! I remember purchasing a couple of different skincare line prior to my wedding! I’m glad I did not breakout on that special day!!! :) Relaxing is also very important as most brides are stressed and it takes a toll on their skin!!!
