Preparing for a destination wedding can be quite stressful, time consuming and intimidating. It may well feel like you’ve crossed the first leg of challenging obstacle race, when you pack all your bags and eagerly make your way to the destination wedding location of your dreams. The last thing you need to dampen your mood, are nasty beauty surprises. Bloating and swelling, blotchy skin, sudden acne attacks, and frizzy, unmanageable hair can really cause your enthusiasm and self-confidence levels to plummet. As much as these can be blamed on external environmental factors, many of them result from personal carelessness, and an over-dependence on cosmetic camouflage. Often the solution to such issues lies in natural, pure, and simple ingredients. All these need from you, is as calm and relaxed a state of being as you can manage. The purer the ingredients, the more potent they are - and if you would leave your skin and hair for some time to the care of all-natural beauty therapies, you might actually see the results you’re hoping for.
ALOE AS AN IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY REMEDY
Aloe Vera is one of the most reliable natural beauty ingredients for beauty disasters. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and works really well on swelling, burns, rashes or cuts. Its astringent qualities make it a soothing, cooling toner, capable of inducing quite a spectacular radiance. Apply our Organic Aloe Vera Juice as a toner, or massage it into the affected areas like a lotion. Sleep it off, even if for 30-45 minutes. You’ll awaken to comparatively calmer, even subtly glowing skin, and this itself will do wonders to bring your skin confidence back on track.

If it’s just temporary dryness/flakiness that’s bothering you, you might want to give the Pure Rose or Mogra Water a go.
