The D day is really that special day in a woman’s life on which she wants to look her ethereal best. And so,you too would leave no stone unturned to look your glowing best. Wedding, for every girl, is a dream come true. Amidst all the hustle-bustle, shopping, arrangements, and preparations, brides-to-be forget to take their naps or beauty therapies and end up looking exhausted by the time they are ready to tie the knot.

Dropping unwanted weight is a sure-fire way to boost the confidence level and feel lovely on the special day. Perfect skin, hair, and body cannot be achieved in a day’s effort. You have to start working on it well in advance to see wonderful results. Starting on the regime a month before the D day can actually do the trick.
Pay attention to what you eat and drink, as what goes inside your stomach shows on the outside. The first task is to cut down on the salt intake. Drink twelve glasses of water every day; even if you don’t feel thirsty, it helps throw away the toxins from the body. Start your day with a cup of green tea and soaked dry fruits. Meals should ideally include a soup, two breads, green vegetables, brown rice, and pulses. Sip on coconut water, fruits/vegetable juices, butter milk, or lemon juice as and when possible through the day. This keeps you hydrated, cool, and energetic the entire day. Try not to eat out.This helps keep a tab on the calorie intake. Make sure there is enough intake of Vitamin C and nutrients like shell fish and nuts, as they improve the texture of the skin.
Shape up with a workout routine

Start by toning your body every morning or evening for about thirty minutes to an hour. Young girls these days prefer unusual ways to get into shape and fit into their wedding trousseau. You can take your pick from varied options like yoga, aerobics, jogging, dance classes,and brisk walking. This will help you remain vigorous and get rid of unwanted waste from the body.Following these tips will make you look your dazzling best.
