Hello Brides and Bridesmaids! I'm sharing with you my secret to glowing skin for your big day and doing damage control if you've been flying to your destination; so take notes.
I recently attended an out of town wedding that required me to fly. After flying for many years I know how my skin tends to look after a flight - parched, maybe dull is a better word. And no girl or bridesmaid wants that. The first step to flying the night before is drinking plenty of water. Taking the necessary steps before a flight or even your big day will help you to achieve a healthy glow. Therefore if you have any jitters the night before, skip the relaxing red wine, it will only dehydrate your skin - instead take a bath.
Now, on to the main secret. I totally love making a sugar scrub. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard. The primary ingredients for this scrub-mask are:
- Lemon juice
- Virgin olive oil
- Brown sugar
- A dash of salt
I never measure my ingredients, I normally go with what my skin might need more of, for example if its dry I may add more honey and oil. Or if I need a deep exfoliate than I throw in more sugar, or if I have dark spots from past blemishes I add extra lemon. The recipe is totally up to you. The next step is to give it a good mix and get applying. I packed mine in a bottle and threw it in my suitcase. Once you thoroughly apply it to your skin let it sit for fifteen minutes. I then like to rinse it off with warm water and use a moisturizer immediately. Not only is the scent refreshing, but your complexion gives that "just back from the spa look". Now get glowing!
