Hello everyone!! Can’t believe we are entering second quarter of the year now! Hope you had a fab+awesome 1st quarter in planning your wedding! On this post we would like to share some wedding beauty tips on how to get a beautiful luminous glow skin just in time for your wedding?
In the lead up to the big event, stress can affect your hormonal balance which may lead to pesky breakouts, rashes and even overly oily or dry skin to occur. Thus, a healthy and clean diet needs to be on top of your priorities list if you want beautifully youthful skin. Don’t go fat free — that will ensure a dull, dry complexion — but eat healthy fats, such as nuts, seeds and olive oil. Drink antioxidant-rich beverages such as green tea and six to eight glasses of pure spring water per day.
Below are a top 5 recommended fruits/juices for your skin:
Peach: For Clearer, Healthier and Glowing Skin
Peaches are high in antioxidant vitamin C. It can reduce wrinkles, improve overall skin texture and help to fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in the formation of collagen, the support system of your skin. It has to be eaten in its natural form (not dried or canned).
Juice Recipe: basil leaves + 1 peach + 1 carrot
Note: remember drink juice – NOT smoothies.
Avocado: For Softer and Supple Skin!
Avocados are among the healthiest natural ingredients on the planet and are also considered a complete diet for babies. They contain over 25 vital nutrients including vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K) and minerals such as copper, potassium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus
Juice Recipe: 1 ripe avocado + 1 cup (236ml) low fat/hi-calcium milk
Note: add honey to substitute milk
Lemon: For Acne Prone skin
Lemons are vitamin C rich citrus fruits that enhance your beauty, by rejuvenating skin from within bringing a glow to your face. One of the major health benefits of drinking lemon water is that it paves way for losing weight faster, thus acting as a great weight loss remedy as well.

Note: having warm lemon juice early in the morning helps flush out toxins.
Apple: Rosy Youthful Glow
Apple fruit has the highest content of collagen and elastic, the stuff that is vital for keeping your skin flawless and youthful. Thus, consuming this delicious red fruit provides you with a rosy youthful glow forever.
Note: both green and red apple consumption is associated with increased weight loss. Choose organic apples so you can eat the skin, which is where many nutrients are found.
Cucumber: Radiant and Hydrated Skin
The amount of calories in cucumber is very low and it contains just 15 grams of calories per 100 grams. It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol. The greatest and most important skin benefit of cucumber is that it helps in revitalizing the skin. Its seeds are rich in Vitamin E and potassium which help in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and other signs of aging.
The most common use of cucumber pulp and juice is to improve complexion and rejuvenate the skin. Mix cucumber juice with a few drop of lemon juice and apply it as a facial mask. This will improve the complexion and will add a glow to the skin.
To have a double boost, you may mix cucumber + apple juice (2 cucumber + 1 apple)
