Get long term glow with skin treatments
Makeup can conceal your facial flaws on your wedding day, but for long term results, try skin treatments like peels and dermaroller therapy two to three months before your D-day, says an expert.
Shuba Dharmana, cosmetic dermatologist, Le'Jeune Med Spa suggests various skin rejuvenation treatments:
- Peels: It involves the use of a solution which causes a controlled peeling of the outer layers of the skin, which has been damaged by sun rays. The tone and texture of the skin is also greatly improved. A series of peels might be necessary to get radiant skin. So consult a dermatologist first.
- Dermaroller therapy: It is good for skin that lacks glow. A roller with tiny needles is rolled across the face after the skin has been numbed with a cream.
- Pumpkin peel facial: It involves a herbal peel that uses pumpkin and willow bark extracts followed by moisturising the skin with three different hydrating masks - a vitamin C and seaweed mask, a collagen mask and an omega 3 fatty acid mask. There is no skin peeling, so it can be done a day before your wedding. The treatment is good for people with acne, dark circles, sensitive skin and for ageing skin.
