When it comes to weddings, the sooner you begin the preparations the safer you are. And if by any chance, you’re the bride of the occasion, prepping early on becomes a necessity and not just a choice. But if your wedding is planned for next week and you really don’t have time to make those lengthy salon appointments or get monthly beauty treatments, it’s time to think fast.
Cosmetics and commercial skincare products are always the first option you should consider when you need the results to show fast. But despite the effectiveness of these products, some women still choose to steer clear from them and use DIY beauty remedies instead because:
· They think commercial cosmetics are not safe for their sensitive skins
· DIY products have all natural ingredients
· Commercial products are too expensive
· They’ve heard their mothers and grandmothers swear by DIY remedies
While there may be some interesting advantages to using DIY remedies for your beauty regime, you still need to consider the cons of them. In fact, for last minute bridal preparations, the cons might actually weigh more than the pros. Here’s a few you should remember:
#1: They’re not fast
Don’t listen to what those beauty gurus on YouTube tell you in their clickbait titles. No DIY product works like magic and gives you a Barbie doll glowing skin overnight. In fact, not even commercial products can do that but compared to DIY remedies, they’re still faster. So, if your wedding is the next day, rubbing tomatoes or honey on your suntanned skin won’t do you much good.
#2: They don’t last
One problem with DIY products is that they can’t be preserved for a long time. You might have to discard the face mask you made today and make a new one tomorrow. This could use up a lot of your ingredients and could cost you a lot in the long run.
#3: They’re not all great for your skin
Most commercial products are made to suit the majority types of skin and if some specifications or instructions are needed, they’re clearly written on the box or bottle. With DIY remedies, most women don’t really know what household ingredient is good for their skin. For example, the lemon whitening remedy can make sensitive skin sting and can make you tan even more if it’s used in the broad daylight.
