Don’t make these skincare mistakes before your wedding, says Dr. Jaishree Sharad; Watch the video
All brides and grooms want to look their best on their big day! To do this and get that glow, they tend to opt for all kinds of skin treatments in the days leading up to the wedding. However, we all need to remember that our skin is a very sensitive organ and should be treated with the utmost care, especially if you are trying new treatment options just before a big day. So, a few days before the wedding, it is advisable to avoid certain procedures that can damage the skin more than making it more beautiful. In an Instagram video, dermatologist Dr Jaishree Sharad pointed out a few things a person should never do 2-3 days before the wedding.
1) Bleach and facials
Dr. Jaishree Sharad said if you are getting married in 2-3 days, avoid bleaching just before the main day. This can cause a reaction or burn of the skin which may not heal in time. So what is the solution ? You can do a trial at least eight weeks before the wedding to check whether or not the products are suitable for your skin type. Dr. Jaishree also said that you should avoid facials for three days before the wedding.
2) Cleanings including the extraction of blackheads and whiteheads
According to Dr. Jaishree Sharad, cleanses that include blackhead and whitehead extraction can leave marks or scabs on the skin for three to five days. And in the worst case, you could catch infected acne if the extractions are incomplete. So, the best thing to do is to have the extractions done a week to 10 days before the wedding.
3) Don’t try home remedies you’ve never tried before
Dr. Jaishree Sharad strictly advises to avoid any type of home remedies that you have not tried before. You have no idea how the ingredient may react on your skin.
4) Chemical peels or laser treatments
Chemical peels or laser treatments may seem effective, but Dr. Jaishree Sharad suggested not trying them 3 days before the wedding. She said the peels had to be stopped three weeks before the big day. If you really want to opt for laser treatment, it can be done a week before the wedding.
5) Botox, fillers and lifting threads
If you want to try botox, fillers, or facelifts, do so about a month before the wedding. This is how you might get the best results. It is also to refrain from bruising or swelling that may occur after these procedures and may last up to a week.
6) New cosmetics
It is advisable to use the cosmetics that you already use and that are suitable for your skin. Strictly avoid trying new cosmetics. This is to ensure that you don’t end up applying anything that you are allergic to. You definitely don’t want a rash on your face during your wedding.
