Wedding tips are never-ending, be it from your Mom’s glow secrets or the secrets from the Hollywood’s soon to be bride-in-law Priyanka Chopra. These wedding tips are pure gold for anyone who is getting married soon. The bride needs to look beautiful as well as feel beautiful from within. Something you must not depend upon is makeup!
Excessive makeup to conceal your dark spots, dull skin and open pores will ultimately give you the acne as a parting gift after your wedding. So beware and start working on your skin and hair so that you won’t need to hide your original skin under the big fat layer of your foundation.
More healthy your skin is, more beautiful you will look. Needless to say, lesser makeup will be required and less artificial the bridal-looks will be.
So let’s dive into the ultimate wedding tips from our very own Priyanka Chopra as told to vogue.
Warning: The tips are all natural and very Indian!
1. Coconut water is your best friend
Priyanka insists on having coconut water as your primary health drink. Have it twice a day to reap the benefits.
Healthyly Tip – Always stay hydrated with this magical water from mother nature. Coconut water is rich in antioxidants and keeps your hunger satiated so it helps to curb your weight gain too. This one is among the best wedding tips to follow.
2. This Lip scrub is the best among wedding tips
The actor likes to make the lip scrub fresh everytime as it appears from her recipe of making it. So here it goes, just mix a pinch of sea salt, a few drops of rosewater and one or two drops of glycerin. Mix them together well. Rub it on your lips and wash off.
Healthyly Tip – Rub the lip scrub in small circular motion from one end to another end on both lips. Wash off with warm water.
3. Bio Oil for those nasty scars and blemishes
As stated by vogue, bio-oil is another favorite of the Quantico famed actor. Bio oil is known for its amazing properties in lightening the scars and clearing the blemishes (exactly what you need before your wedding).
Healthyly Tip – Bio oil has an amazing blend of Rosemary oil, lavender oil, chamomile oil, calendula oil along with the beauty vitamins (vitamin A & E). Massage it daily over your stretch marks, scar or uneven skin tone twice daily in circular motions. The effect needs 3 months of religious routine. The reviews speak for the product too.

4. Ubtan Face and Body Mask
This five-ingredient ubtan is the ancient exfoliator used by the Indian women from centuries, thus making it a star in grandma’s wedding tips. The easily available kitchen products make it easily accessible to everyone. This one is good for face as well as body. So the recipe is
- One cup gram flour (Besan)
- One pinch of turmeric powder
- A few drops of lemon juice
- One teaspoon sandalwood powder
- Add yogurt to create a smooth paste-like consistency (fat-free milk and yogurt for oily skin)
Mix them well, apply on your body and face for 15 to 20 minutes, rub it and wash off the remaining as told to Harpersbazzar.
Healthyly Tip – Use circular motions to rub off the ubtan. Don’t just wash it off as then you will not be able to achieve its exfoliator effect. Also, don’t add too much of turmeric, just a pinch will be enough. Girls with oily skin can add rosewater too and take a bath with warm water to remove excess oil if any.
5. Coconut oil is the new makeup remover
This one is a pure genius from Priyanka Chopra. Instead of using the chemical based makeup removers, use the organic coconut oil to remove your makeup with a cotton swab dubbed in it.
Keep it on your skin for 1 to 2 minutes and wipe your face with a hot towel to exfoliate, steam and hydrate your skin in one go. Hats off to Priyanka’s Mom Madhu Chopra for this amazing tip.
Healthyly Tip – Use just a few drops of coconut oil on a cotton swab and remove it gently. People with oily skin must not skip the hot towel step!
6. Keep a pair of sunglass in your bag whenever you step out.
Your eyes and the under-eye circles will thank you for it. Priyanka always keeps it in her bag, plus it completes your stylish look.
7. Hand cream is a must
This one is also from the Padma Shri winner’s bag. You always need soft hands, wink…wink…
8. Yogurt Scalp Mask
Yogurt with a teaspoon of honey is something that used to be treated as a dandruff remedy. Priyanka Chopra also swears by it with just one egg added. This yogurt scalp mask will keep the dryness away from your scalp. Just make sure to wash it with a mild shampoo and warm water.
Healthyly Tip – Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to get rid of the yogurt smell and make your hair shiny too. Here are a few handpicked essential oils for hair.
So the beauty secrets from our desi girl are still desi and she has India in her heart and upbringing too.
Healthyly strongly recommends Priyanka Chopra’s beauty tips to follow and keep it as one of the most important wedding tips ever!
