    Your skin needs to recover from the stress of the day and all the external elements–like the sun and pollution–that it has been exposed to. While you’re sleeping, the skin is hard at work recovering and not getting enough sleep will inhibit your skin from fully recovering. The consequences of this include premature signs of ageing, dull skin, and potential breakouts.

     

    (2) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

    Hydration is key for better skin texture and appearance, and not only on the outside, but from the inside as well! So drink up always, ladies, if you want to have healthy skin on your wedding day. Even early on, make it a habit to drink 8 glasses of water a day, you’ll feel and see the effects soon enough.
