Preparing for the wedding day

If you want your skin to look glowing and radiant on your wedding day, then start following a simple face cleansing routine 3-4 times a day for at least one month before your wedding. Always keep your skin covered under a moisturizing lotion so as to protect it from blemishes and dull spots caused by everyday dust and dirt. Apply a suitable face pack regularly to get rid of dullness and oiliness on your skin.
