Bridal Season  not only  brings with it many goods of cozy weather conditions suitable for sun bath, outgoing activities, window shoppings, etc. but many worries and anxieties also which include skin dehydration, wrinkles, complexion dullness, sun tanning, hair and scalp dandruff, hair fall, etc which prompts us to choose any so called Natural skin and hair care products .

Season of weddings and other auspicious occasions of get together also create so many butterflies in our belly , especially the to be bride  who starts suffering from the unforeseen traits of wedlock like anxieties, Mood swings, sleep disorders, irregular diet syndromes, and many other unwarranted thoughts about bridal looks, skin and body care, beauty regimen , choice of Make  Up Studio, and other thoughts that influence our Endocrinal System and creates imbalance in Hormonal secretions thereby having profound effect on our Skin and body.

This is so very important for the “to be bride” to be free from such anxieties and enjoy this once in a life time occasion and should have a few sessions with beauty counselors, and also opt for natural therapies like Yoga, Pranayam, etc. to remain fresh and in jolly moods.
