Easter beauty tips for brides

Easter beauty tips for brides


Written by Katie Byrne


Enjoy your chocolate without the fear of a breakout with these five tips from bespoke bridal beauty concierge service Sapphire Pink...

 

#1 Go dark

Chocolate in its raw form has some very positive attributes - raw cacao is a powerful antioxidant and contains the happy hormone serotonin and phenylethylamine; the chemical released when we’re in love. It has wonderful healing properties and the purer the chocolate, the better it is for us. Always opt for dark chocolate (over 70% cocoa) and steer clear of over-processed milk and white varieties.

#2 Regulate your hormones

If Easter clashes with your monthly menstruation cycle, it’s best to avoid chocolate altogether. The combination of hormones with an overdose of sugar can have a disastrous effect on your skin so treat yourself to a relaxing massage or facial instead – you’ll thank yourself later.

#3 Flush it out

If you simply can’t resist the temptation and find yourself in a post-Easter sugar slump, drink plenty of water. Water is the best way to flush out toxins from your body and keep your skin looking fresh.

#4 Start your beauty regime

If your bridal beauty regime is yet to begin, now is the time to start ahead of the wedding season. Invest time into a weekly full cleanse, exfoliate, mask, tone, serum, eye cream and moisture routine – getting into the habit of plumping up tired and dehydrated skin will pay off in the long run.

#5 Go totally guilt-free!

For a completely guilt-free chocolate indulgence, whip up super moisturising chocolate face mask that’s guaranteed to get your skin glowing without the calories: mix together one teaspoon of cocoa powder, three teaspoons of cottage cheese and three tablespoons dairy cream, slap it on and relax!
