This morning to skincare regime will give your skin a boost of nourishment and will help you to own a super gorgeous bridal glow on your wedding day. Let’s get started Brides-to-be, take notes!
Day Skincare Routine For Brides-To-Be
Whether it’s fitness or beauty goals, morning is the best time to invest in yourself. And when it comes to skincare, your morning regime shouldn’t just include basic CTM but a few extra steps to protect your skin from pollution, dirt, and sun damage. We are here to take you through your daily morning skincare routine to ace your wedding day!
Step 1: Cleanse your skin the right way!
Kickstart your day by splashing water and the right cleanser according to your skin type. You need to ensure that the cleanser you use should provide your skin proper moisturization and hydration which helps improve your skin’s texture and doesn’t clog pores. Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a pH-balanced formula that ensures your skin’s acid mantle is maintained, making it ideal for even those with sensitive skin. Its mild acidity even acts as a gentle exfoliant for your skin making sure that your skin doesn’t feel any stripping feeling.
Step 2: For the love of your skin, use a toner
Most of us tend to skip the toning but it is extremely beneficial for our skin. Every toner is designed to rejuvenate your skin from the damages caused over the years. You can go for Benton Snail Bee High Content Skin as it comes loaded with amazing ingredients like green tea, snail secretion filtrate, and bee venom. This toner is perfect for oily and blemished skin (summers are here) because of its fantastic anti-inflammatory properties, which you’ll love it!
Step 3: For extra hydration, don’t skip essence
You can consider the heart of Korean skincare, the essence is a hybrid between a toner and a serum. It deeply hydrates your skin while aiding with cell turnover. Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a popular pick in this category. It transforms your skin while keeping in the moisture and provides a healthy glow! The rich ingredient- Snail mucin has the ability to repair dry patches, acne breakouts, lightening hyperpigmentation with regular use.
Step 4: Time To Treat Your Spots With Serum
We all have been troubled by dark spots, acne spots and hyperpigmentation at some spots in our lives. Yes, the struggle to get rid of them is totally valid. For this, we recommend Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spt Serum Plus enriched with Green Tangerines that provide dark spot relief and bright skin. This serum is your answer to how to get rid of hyperpigmentation and dark patches on the skin and evens out skin tone.
Step 5: Lock in the moisture!
Every skin type needs a moisturizer, even if your skin is oily. It is best advised to apply a moisturizer when your skin is still a little damp to lock in the hydration well. For those with oily skin, an oil-free moisturiser renders hydration and a natural glow, sans oiliness, would be the best. Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream holds in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated without making skin oily. This intensively hydrating cream makes your skin feel soft and provides long-lasting moisture. Perfect for summer wedding days!
Step 6: How can you skip SPF?
Never skip sunscreen even if you have plans to stay indoor while making a guest list! This is the last step in your daytime skincare routine that helps to shield your skin from the harmful UVA rays. Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF, like Suntique I’m Pure Cica Sunscream which has SPF 50 that is non-greasy on application. Glides so smoothly and doesn’t leave any white cast and the enriched ingredient Centella Asiatica Extract hydrates for the skin barrier.
Night Skincare Routine For Brides-To-Be
If you thought you can use the same products and go with the morning skincare routine, girls you are mistaken. The skincare steps we do at night are to pamper and relax your skin. It’s important to have a proper regime during the night as well so that your skin has time to absorb all the benefits that the products have to offer.
Step 1: Double cleansing should be the key!
First, cleanse your face with an oil-based cleanser to remove dirt, impurities, makeup, SPF, and excess sebum. Juice to Cleanse Water wash Balm is a multi-cleanser that gently yet effectively removes all the skin impurities. The consistency and texture of the balm are oh-so-good look like an ice cream that melts so easily into your skin. Then, simply take a pea-sized amount of Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser on your palm and massage your face with it, concentrating your T-zone and rinse it off with water. This will ensure that all the left impurities will be removed easily!
Step 2: Exfoliate Once A Week
Exfoliating your skin every week with a gentle product like Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask will make you get rid of dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft and supple. It dissolves makeup and impurities without leaving your skin dry. It’s a mild gentle exfoliator that gently buffs your dead skin cells and provides you with a smooth skin texture. Isn’t it something of your interest too?
Step 3: Additional hydration is always the best!
Use a pH balancing toner like the Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner, just like you did in the morning to prep your skin. During this time your skin gets much time to let the toner get absorbed into your skin and let it sleep for some time. This toner is designed to control sebum and helps to keep your pores clear. It’s a mild toner so won’t irritate your skin!
Step 4: Make it a point to use Ampoule
As in the morning, use treatments that target specific issues. Your evening treatments can be different from your morning treatments. Finding the best treatments for your unique skin, we recommend you Cosrx Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule that helps to heal your stressed skin and reduce redness. Also, it provides your skin amazing hydration and soothes the skin completely!
Step 5: Your eyes are precious!
After a long day of staring at your phone for finding that perfect trousseau for your wedding, your eyes will thank you for some hydration. Eye creams are helpful at night in order to get rid of dark circles and using an eye cream with well-known Korean ingredients, Benton Fermentation Eye Cream will not only heal the puffiness and dark circles around your eyes but also give you a plumpy look for sure!
Step 6: Lock in the moisture with night cream!
Your night cream should be heavier and thicker in consistency as compared to day creams. Skin regeneration goes into overtime while we sleep and for even more luxurious hydration, you can even invest in a use a sleeping pack twice a week. Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream protects your skin from irritation & stress while providing your skin nourishment as well.
