Today i write to you about 'the importance of pre-wedding facial routine
I have come to find that 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 etc. 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 the big day.
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 ethics 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)! These masks work very well with us,and so we thought its needful to share.
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 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.

Combine mixture, then apply to face.

If you need to thicken the mixture, you can add flour.

If you would like to have a stronger anti-dullness effect, a bit of lemon together with the yogurt will do the trick.
