Bridal Face Mask for Beautiful Skin
The Importance of Pre-Wedding Bridal Facial Routine
Many brides will visit the beauty salon and spa just before their wedding day. It is also a time for the bride to engage in pampering herself before her big day. These days, the bride will be joined by her bridesmaids.
However, a day at the beauty salon and spa will not have much of an effect on a bride's facial skin unless she has also been taking good care of it prior to it.
If you want great looking, radiant and beautiful skin on your wedding day, then it is important to begin a pre-wedding bridal beauty care daily regime well in advance.
In keeping with eco-friendly and natural living ethos of this blog's writers, we propose a few homemade facial masks with natural wholesome ingredients that should be part of a bride's beauty regime (or any woman's for that matter)!
The starring ingredient in these facial masks is...Yogurt!
Why Use Natural Yogurt in Face Masks?
Well, yogurt has amazing cleansing properties that help remove traces of dirt, pollution and make up from the pores of our skin and leave it looking fresh, glowing and younger. A Yogurt Face Mask acts as a skin tightening and reviving agent. It is particularly good for those who are acne-prone.
The main function of yougurt is deep cleansing. It also brightens the skin and evens out the skin tone. Apart from that, it is also good for moisturizing and firming the skin.
These facial masks should stay on for 10-15 minutes, and should be followed up with cleansing and a thin layer of moisturizer as the last step.
Warning: If you have sensitive skin (for instance, react adversely to to AHA/ BHA) then do not use this recipe. If you put the yogurt on your face and experience a burning sensation over the cheeks, you should wash it off! A mild tingling sensation on the other hand is all right.
Pre-Wedding Bridal Natural Face Masks for Glowing Skin
Yogurt Face Mask
1 tbsp natural yogurt, room temperature (not lowfat or non-fat)
1 tsp runny honey or lime, as needed (see below)
Combine mixture, then apply to face.
Let sit for 15 minutes.
Wash face with steaming washcloth.
If you need to thicken the mixture, you can add flour.
If you would like to have a stronger moisturizing effect, you can add a bit of honey in the yogurt. If you would like to have a stronger anti-dullness effect, a bit of lemon together with the yogurt will do the trick.
Oatmeal-Yogurt Face Mask:
1 tbsp oatmeal, finely ground
1 tbsp live, organic yogurt
A few drops of honey
Add the yogurt to the oatmeal in a small bowl and mix together. Stir the honey into the yogurt and oatmeal mixture.
Another good recipe for brightening up your skin is to use a natural homemade facial recipe used by Indian brides and Indian women. This recipe is favored by one of the most beautiful woman in the world, Indian Bollywood actress (see image below), Aishwarya Rai.
