Wedding Beauty Regimen: How to Do Bridal Skincare at Home?

facial for bridal

The wedding season in India has officially begun! It can be quite exhausting to plan the wedding ceremony, food arrangements, decorations, invitations, etc and execute all of it. This may leave very little time for the bride to schedule her self-pampering salon treatments. If this problem resonates with you, we have a solution! You no longer have to spend a lot of time in the salon to get glowing, flawless skin on your special day.

Here’s a simplified bridal skincare routine at home that you can perform easily to get clear, smooth skin on your wedding day. Stay tuned to the end of the blog to know about professionally performed advanced skin treatments for a bride-to-be that can also be carried out from the comfort of your home.

Most Effective Pre-Bridal Skincare Hacks

1. CTM

Let’s start with the roots of the bridal skincare routine at home- CTM (Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing).

These 3 steps are a love language for your skin and this process is effortless but effective!

Step 1: Cleansing

Cleansing with a face that suits your skin type will make your skin squeaky clean, and ready for the next step.

Step 2: Toning

Using a toner after cleansing is given as it cleans and opens the pores, and the toner tightens them again. Furthermore, toning has been well known for its long-term benefits for healthy-looking skin.

Step 3: Moisturising

Once cleansing and toning are done, moisturising is the final step. This step helps bring back moisture, making the skin look hydrated and supple.

This was the CTM routine brides swear by as it’s simple and works for every skin type.

Pro Tip

Fill your products in travel-friendly containers and pack them in your bag so you never miss your CTM routine! Add these 3 easy steps to the skincare routine for the bride-to-be, and you’re good to go.

2. De-tanning homemade mask

Tanning is the most frustrating beauty problem, and keeping it in check is crucial during the wedding season. This face and body mask will ensure a tan-free experience for the bride-to-be.


  • 6 tablespoons chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk
  • A pinch of turmeric powder
  • 4-5 drops of your favourite essential oil

How to use:

Mix all these ingredients in a bowl until a thick paste is formed. Once the mixture is ready, apply the mask to your face, hands, legs, stomach and back.

Let the mask sit until it dries up completely, then take a bath with lukewarm water and wash the mask off your body.

You will see an instant glow in your body, and the tan will be completely gone after 2-3 applications of the same mask.

Note: You can apply this mask once every three days for best results.

3. Armpits lightening mask

When we think of skincare, we tend to overlook some of our most important areas, including armpits, so here’s a no-brainer armpit mask you can make and apply to get lighter and cleaner armpits.


  • 2 tablespoons of red lentil (masoor daal) powder
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 4-5 tablespoons of milk

How to use: Mix all the ingredients into a bowl until they form a paste-like consistency. Once your paste is ready, apply it onto your armpits and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. After 15 minutes, wipe the mask off with a wet cloth.

You will notice an instant difference in how your armpit skin looks and feels.

4. Anti-hair fall treatment at home

Did you think we’d forget about our bride’s hair? The bridal skincare routine at home is incomplete without proper hair care. Skin care before the wedding is important, and so is hair care.

Though hair care might be different for different hair types, here is one magic recipe that will work for everyone’s hair (please consult your doctor if you are under skin treatment).


  • 500 ml coconut oil
  • 20 ml castor oil
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 5 tbsp methi (fenugreek)
  • 5 tbsp kalonji (fennel flower)
  • Glass jar

Put all these ingredients in a clear glass jar and mix it well. Now comes the fun part, put the jar in the sun for 7-15 days.

Naturally, sun heat will help the ingredients mix well with each other, and the oil will become magical for your hair. Hair fall problems will diminish from a single use and eventually completely stop.

Pro tip

Once the oil is ready, heat it for 5-10 seconds and then apply to get the best results!

The benefits are countless; you will see the results from the first application itself.

5. Body polishing for the win!

The last step has to be the most significant one - body polishing! A bridal skincare routine at home will be futile without full body polishing.

What exactly does body polishing mean? Body polishing is an intensive exfoliation process which removes the dead cells from the body and promotes the regeneration of new cells. Sounds unreal! But it’s true.

Ingredients -

  • Half a cup of baking soda
  • Half a cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4-5 drops of lavender essential oil (you can use any oil of your choice)
  • Mixing bowl

How to use:

Mix all the ingredients in the bowl and apply them to your body. Massage well, so the ingredients seep into the skin completely. Wash it off in 10-15 minutes with lukewarm water.

This step will take your bridal skincare routine at home to another level!
