There aren't really any miracles that work overnight. So, we spoke to Dr. Batul Patel --, leading celebrity dermatologist and founder & medical director of The Bombay Skin Clinic -- and asked her to share some easy skin care tips one can follow ahead of the wedding season.
Use An Exfoliating Face Wash
Our expert recommends using an exfoliating face wash a few days before the event. She shared that one must look for ingredients like glycolic acid and, mandelic acid, which help remove dead skin without leaving your skin dry. Look for a face wash which is soap-free and comes with small beads that gently scrub your skin.
Change Your Face Creams
For women suffering from breakouts, acne prone skin, Dr. Patel suggested switching to azelaic acid based creams or adapalene based creams. She shared that these creams should be used on the acne spots for two hours and then washed off. These help settle acne.

We often forget to take care of our lips and this can ruin our entire look. Start taking care of your lips way ahead of the wedding. Apply a lip balm everyday with SPF. This will prevent lip pigmentation. To make your lips look pink and hydrated, you can also go for hyaluronic acid injections. These injections make your lips look soft and pink. This should however be done ideally 15 days to one month before the day of the event.
