1. Work On Your Complexion

Remember those formulas in mathematics you have studied in your school level?  Are you good at memorizing abbreviations? If so! It’s time to remember one more simple abbreviation. 

This abbreviation will help you maintain your complexion at its best. The abbreviation is “ECTM”. It stands for Exfoliation, Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing.

Let us know in depth about each letter in the abbreviation first.


Exfoliation is nothing but removing the dead skin cells from the skin.   In this polluted environment we are living, it is obvious that a lot of dust in the air will be accumulated on our skin.

Leaving that dust and dirt on the face without proper cleaning would result in damage to the skin. If your skin belongs to the dry category, the impact will be double. So, care should definitely be taken.

Here comes the exfoliation of skin where the dead skin will be removed every now and then without any accumulation of dead cells on the skin. So, start with a good exfoliating agent to exfoliate your skin.


This is the next step to exfoliation. Cleansing is nothing but cleaning the skin by using a face wash. Now-a-days most of the people prefer face washes on soaps to cleanse and clean their face.

It is very important to wash your face with a ph balanced face wash to protect your skin type.  If you have a dry skin then you are strictly restricted to use chemical filled face washes. Use mild face washes that contain very fewer amounts of chemicals in them. Stay away from soaps.


The next to cleansing is toning. Toning is very important for our skin. But choosing the best toner is the key. Few toners may damage your skin by stretching it. Don’t go for such toners.


Moisturizing is the final step in protecting your skin. There are extraordinary working moisturizers in the market that offer great moisturizing to the skin.  Moisturizing is mainly designed for dry skin.

Oily skin needs a little or no moisturizing. But it goes the denial route with dry skin. It is mandatory to apply a moisturizer for moisturizing. Choose the best moisturizer and apply it before going to best. 

2. Schedule A Night Regimen

You may be vexed with facials and face masks that take a long time to dry.  But this tip is something that will attract you for sure.  You no need to go for masks and facials.

Just massaging for minutes time is more than enough. Take some glycerine and add water to it. Apply it to your face and massage it for a while. You can replace glycerine with olive oil too.

Glycerine has wonderful properties that help with your skin complexion. Massage glycerine mixed with water on the skin every night. You can even mix 2-4 drops of olive oil with it.

Concealer Takes The Second Place

Concealers are next to the foundation. Use concealers that are cream based. Cream based concealer goes well with dry skin. 

Choose The Right Blush

Blush is very important for a bridal makeup. Choose the right blush that suits your complexion. Don’t choose blushes other than cream or stick blushes. Don’t ever choose powder blushes as they will make your makeup dry and leads to cracks on skin.

Go for the waterproof mascara to your eyelashes. In order to keep your eyelashes thick and healthy, apply olive oil to your eyelashes to your lashes before going to bed.
