Aiming for the bridal glow? Here are some skin care essentials the bride-to-be must-have.

By Eena Batra


We all want to look prim and proper, especially when the D-day is approaching like a rocket. To make sure you have the healthy glow in place during and post the wedding stress, we have shortlisted some of the essential skin care products that need to be a part of your skin care regime {and be used religiously}.

Though we all follow the basic CTM routine, we suggest all the bride-to-be’s to get their hands on the following essentials for good.

1. Facial Cleanser: It is very important for every girl to make sure that their skin is clean and fresh at all times. Investing a mild and paraben-free facial cleanser is the best you can for your skin.

We recommend: Galderma’s Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.

The product does what it claims. It is a lather-free formula that deep cleanses your skin gently. It also helps in maintaining the PH balance of the skin unlike other face cleansers.


2. Toner: The importance of a toner is yet to be understood by most but trust us and use a toner every day to save yourself from the open pores. 

We recommend: Kama Ayurveda’s natural floral distillations

The pure and floral distilled water are mild and perfect for all skin types. You can choose from two different fragrances depending upon your preferences and skin problems.

3.Moisturizer: Moisturizers to skin are what nutrients are to the body. Make sure all you brides get a nice moisturizer {depending up on your skin type}.

We recommend: Clinique’s Moisture Surge

Clinique’s Moisture Surge is a water-based product that claims to be a 72-hour hydrator. It also replenishes skin to give you a dewy and fresh look throughout the day. Clinique also has an intensive concentration of the surge that is a great pick for brides with dry and dull skin.

4. Facial serum: Girls! We all have been hearing and reading about how holy facial serums are and not to brag and drag, but that is 100 percent true. Facial serums are the boosters that makes the skin healthy and glowy and isn’t that what all the brides want, right?!

We recommend: Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum (Synchronized recovery complex II)

Mark our words and splurge for the bridal glow. We trust and recommend you to invest in the Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum. It is one of the best concentrated serum in the market. The light-weight serum absorbs within seconds and doesn’t leave the skin feel oily and heavy.

Sun Block: More is less when it comes to sun block. And tan is hot, but not when you are getting married. So saying that again, ‘Please use a sunscreen before you step out, girls’.

We recommend: La Shield Sunscreen Gel SPF 40

It is one of the best sun blocks that not just us but a lot of dermatologists highly recommend. This sun block comes with a matte formula that doesn’t leave an oily residue on your skin and allows it to breathe while shielding it from the harmful UV rays.

6. Make up Remover: Never sleep with your make up on. Brides, make sure you take your make up or any product off before lying down for your beauty sleep not just before the wedding but after it also. Make up (even, organic and chemical-free) can clog your pores and cause break out.

We recommend: Bioderma’s Micellar Water.

This product removes your make up in just a few swipes and cleanses the skin like magic so that your skin can repair itself in peace.

BONUS: Now that you are sorted with cleansing and protection, make sure you indulge in some me-time with hydrating and brightening sheet masks or clay masks on. We totally recommend all you brides to order Innisfree sheet masks for hydration and Dermalogica’s Charcoal Masque for deep cleansing and added hydration.
