December is popular the world over as Indian wedding season, with festivities for days on a stretch. And if you are the bride or the groom, the onus of taking care of the preparations while also ensuring you look radiant on your special day can be pretty exhausting.
Fret not. Here are five things you can keep in mind to keep your skin healthy and get a radiant glow, whether you are the bride or groom or just getting set for all the fun for the wedding season.
No compromise on sleep
Take your 'beauty sleep' seriously. A good eight-hour sleep is not just essential for your body to function well but also gives your skin ample time to rejuvenate and build itself up from the day's wear and tear.

Say hi to fibres in diet
While there's no need to change your diet radically, intaking fibres regularly during the months pre-dating the wedding can be greatly beneficial for your skin. Fruit and vegetable smoothies are a great way to include a good dose of fibres in your system.
Be careful with over-the-top skin routines
Brides-to-be often feel the urge to undergo expensive facial treatments. As exciting as they may seem, such treatments can be harmful and may not suit every skin type. It's best to avoid them and stick to the usual Cleansing-Toning-Moisturising routine. If you do want to get a facial treatment, get in touch with a dermatologist first.

Moisturise without fail
While it may seem like an 'unnecessary step' to most, moisturising your skin regularly is quintessential to keeping it supple, healthy and naturally radiant, while keeping patchiness at bay.
Keep stress at bay
Planning a wedding requires months of preparation, which can be quite stressful. Your skin reacts to stress. It can make you look dull on your big day, which you definitely don't want. So, try to keep your stress levels as low as possible. If you feel the levels rising, book a spa, get a massage or simply take a walk in a park. When you're relaxed, your skin glows automatically.
