Doctor's column: Skin care for your wedding day.
by Dr Amina Kauser Cleanse, tone, moisturise, every morning and night.
It's the wedding season, and if you are the bride, then your main concern right now is how to look great on your day. Try to start a skin regimen at least six months prior to the wedding for best results and choose from the following opportunities -- procedures like laser hair removal, chemical or AHA peels, botox injections, or microdermabrasion. What treatments can the bride take to gain a clear skin for her big day? Mesoglow is a treatment option which brings back the glow to your face, especially after the daily grind leaves it dull and lifeless. With tiny injections and a vitamin concoction, your skin will regain its moisture in just a couple of sessions. Sun exposure, pigmentation, scars, and everyday pollution, can leave our skin dull, and lifeless. Microdermabrasion or skin polishing is a wonderful method of exfoliating the lifeless upper crust of the skin and replacing it with a new fresh layer of skin. As tiny crystals are sprayed and rolled over the skin, they will gently remove the dull and damaged layer of the skin. How can the bride avoid stress after the wedding? To the stress of the honeymoon and countless lunches and dinners which you will be attending in your first few months as a bride, you would not want to add the tension of regular waxing and shaving. Laser hair removal is a good solution. By focusing a high energy beam of light on it, the procedure eliminates the chances of hair growing back. The process takes a few sessions; so make sure you meet a dermatologist at least a couple of months before the wedding. There are also medical facials that combine medical therapy and products with a beauty regimen. Based on your skin type your dermatologist will personalise these to suit your skin type. How can the bride look most beautiful on the wedding day? 1. No matter what, make sure you get seven or eight hours of sleep a night for the month leading up to your wedding. Not just your body, your mind needs it. 2. Drink water at least 8 glasses a day. Never more critical than now as exhaustion can cause dehydration, and skin also suffers if you're not hydrating it enough from within. Carry a bottle everywhere, whether you're home, out inviting guests, or shopping. 3. Ditch the dangerous stuff from your diet. Skip sugary foods, and everything fried --even though the temptation to dig into comfort food will rise with every wedding-related crisis. Tempted to binge dessert? Stick to a sorbet or fruity custard; keep your meals as light and nutritious as possible. 4. Take a walk. 20 minutes a day. It'll give you much-needed alone time, and introduce at least a little physical activity into your routine. 5. Cleanse, tone, moisturise, every morning and night. Buy from a good skincare range, and follow these basics religiously. 6. Ideally, you should start treatment for your face, body, and hair around six months before your wedding. Follow the cleanse-tone-moisturise ritual daily: Cleansing your face twice a day is a must, so that dirt and toxins are washed off. Toning closes your pores after cleansing. And moisturising hydrates your skin, making it supple. [emailprotected]
