Blushing brides look forward to their wedding day with great excitement. Adding to the fun is the feverish preparation to look their beautiful best on the D-day.

While being healthy is taken care of by yoga and a good diet, there are a lot of ways to glow like a princess.

For instance, try aromatherapy body massage with special essential oils of ylang ylang, jasmine, neroli, rose followed by pack, wrap and soak — a head-to-toe treatment!

Or go for jewel spa treatment that uses precious stones, gold, silver, and crushed pearls mixed with essential oil and exotic herbs. It deep cleanses the skin so well that brides can glow well after their honeymoon!

Crystal spa therapy, comprising facial and body massage, is just the thing to do to get that perfect radiance on the big day. The treatment uses pure essential oils and quartz crystals. The quartz crystals carry the essential oils faster and deeper into the skin, transforming dull skin into something that sparkles endlessly. Try the crystal pack, crystal wrap and crystal bath too.

Of course, in addition to the skin, what needs extra attention is hair; and there are so many options to make your beautiful tresses fall effortlessly over your shoulders. Sample this: Deep condition treatment that includes chocolate, seaweed conditioner with protein to make hair soft and shine.

There are also a few easy treatments that can be followed at home. To clear the skin, use a pack of papaya with milk powder and lemon juice. Apply it on the face and rinse after 10 minutes. If the skin is oily, mix magnesia milk with one drop of tea tree oil, apply and rinse after seven to 10 minutes. For the eye, use under eye gel.

Now, you are all set to floor your man, as you hold hands and take the first step towards a life-altering journey. Happy glowing!
