If you haven't already, start using sunscreen with SPF over 30. Make sure it is a good reliable brand and suitable for your skin type. Do not make the mistake of not using it when you don’t step out in the sun. Use it every day even indoors.

Wash off your makeup every day especially after the wedding ceremonies before you go to sleep. Sleeping with makeup is a big no for good skin.

Cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin every day. This basic skincare regime needs to be followed by every woman out there. But as a bride-to-be, you should be very diligent with this Tricare. Cleaning your skin well helps to remove all the dirt and impurities from your skin. A toner helps to balance the PH balance of your skin. It aids in reducing fine lines and tightens the pores. Lastly, a moisturizer is essential to lock in the moisture in your skin to keep it soft, supple, and hydrated. Brides with oily skin have repeatedly made a mistake then and again. They tend to use harsh cleansers, which makes their skin look dull and porous. They also tend to willingly opt out of using a moisturizer which in turn makes the skin worse. They need to choose the right products for their skin and use a water-based moisturizer.
