Diet suggestions for that glowing bridal skin

Without a doubt, as the bride, you are the centre of attention at your wedding. Planning and making sure that everything is perfect and up to your standards can take quite a toll - and making sure that you look your best while dealing with wedding stress is a mission of itself.

We have compiled some diet suggestions for the bride-to-be to ensure that you look your absolute best on your special day, and have the glowing radiant look every bride deserves.

  1. Eat Vitamins Daily

Eating foods that carry the essential vitamins your body needs is very important. Pick out the fruits and vegetables that you enjoy that have those necessary vitamins that protect you skin from the damage of the sun, such as Vitamin A and E, which can be found in leafy greens and nuts and avocados.

  1. Say ‘No’ to Coffee and Alcohol

Caffeine and alcohol dehydrate your skin, and leave it looking tired and dry. Limiting your intake of both will give your skin a better chance at attaining that desired glowing skin. So, try to go a little easy on the Champagne at your Bachelorette party, and opt for non-caffeinated drinks before your big day.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Water is a vital necessity to have while planning your wedding ceremony, although remembering to keep some around can be a little challenging. While keeping your daily water intake in mind, you don’t necessarily need to drink it to keep up, there are vegetables such as celery and cucumber that are filled with plenty of water, and melons also fall into this group that can cover your water consumption.

  1. Exercise regularly

Exercising leads to sweating, this is how your body expels toxins from your body to keep you healthy for longer periods of time. It also helps to circulate your blood flow by bringing more blood cells to the surface of your skin. Any types of exercise can do the job; however yoga and jogging have proved to be the most effective types of exercises.

  1. Sleep properly

The proper sleep routine will ensure that your body does its job right and allow your natural skin treatments to get you the best results possible. A full 8 hours of sleep should be just enough for you body’s cell replenishing and healing factor to do its job right.

  1. Easy on the Sugar and Salt

These two things can cause skin inflammation as well as irritation. A great benefit to cutting down on sugar and salt is that it can really slim you waistline down, and reduce puffiness and tiredness in the face. Try eating natural sugars found in fruit instead of processed sugar, wholegrains and vegetables are also a good alternative source for sugar.
