Indian wedding ceremonies are a bit too stretched, and they deprive you of a much-needed sleep for quite too many days.

And, on the other hand, you simply spoil the natural beauty of your face by depriving it of a proper sleep. So, just run away and avoid those dark circles.
While a lot of you work hard to get a toned body for your wedding day, all your efforts go waste as soon as the ceremonies begin. In each and every ceremony, your mouth is stuffed with a variety of sweets. And, not to forget the post-wedding lunch and dinner sessions at various friends' and relatives' places that you have to attend. And guess what?
