With the wedding season knocking at our doors, it's time to up our game and be it the outfit or accessories, we all want to show up with our best foot forward but have you started to prep your skin, too? Well, let us tell you that just makeup won't help. It is important that your skin has a natural glow from within which adds to your look. Also, the current change in weather and the burgeoning AQI can take a toll on the skin, so taking extra care is a must. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr Rashmi Shetty, Consultant Aesthetic Dermatologist in Mumbai, revealed to Zarafshan Shiraz the little secrets that can make the skin glow in all its glory and make heads turn this wedding season: (Rishe Clicks)

1. Sleep well - We all know the excitement and thrill before D-day that does not let us doze off but an uninterrupted good night’s sleep is a game-changer to the skincare regimen, particularly for the under-eye area. Rightly called “beauty sleep”, it does wonders for the skin as this is the time when a number of hormones, including cortisol, melatonin, and human growth hormone, are produced. These hormones are essential for recovery because they repair daily skin damage, maintain youthful skin and shield the skin from free radicals that might harm the cells. (Getty Images/iStockphoto)

2. Be clean - Face hygiene is as important as hand hygiene. Wash your face with a mild face wash. Although the routine is followed by everyone, what some of us must be lagging at is overlooking the ingredients of the facewash. We need to ensure that the ingredients of the facewash are gentle on the skin, only removing the excess oil. Look for a cleanser that has a non-foaming formula, is hypoallergenic and has no alcohol or smell. (RODNAE Productions)


3. Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize! - It can’t be stressed enough that the key to healthy glowing skin lies in how hydrated it is from the inside. Undoubtedly, hyaluronic acid is a boon for everyone. Profhilo is one of the most groundbreaking therapies for hyaluronic acid administration. It uses futuristic technology and offers very high concentrations of the substance. Its ability to biologically stimulate four major types of collagen, proliferate adipocyte stem cells, and elastin makes it a very potent therapy for skin rejuvenation and conditioning. (Pexels)

4. Be masked - With the upsurge in pollution levels, we need a mask, not just N95 ones but also a deep cleansing mask to strip off the debris, blackheads and whiteheads mounted on our faces. These could be charcoal or clay masks based on your preferences. The mask sucks out the impurities and cleanses the face to impart a dewy glow. (ROMAN ODINTSOV)
