Essential Tips for Flawless Skin on Your Wedding Day

There are a few days in a girl’s life she wants to look her absolute best and of course the big one is her wedding day. This is the one day of your life you are kissed and hugged within an inch of your life, photographed and videoed for viewing many times over. As the excitement of the engagement begins to fade, the real work begins – thoughts of dress fittings, invitations, flower bouquets, seating arrangements and cakes dance through your head competing for your time.

With all of the planning, it’s easy to skip over skincare preparations. Ideally you should begin five to six months in advance of the wedding to ensure you are picture perfect.

First things first, consult with your beauty professional.  You two can discuss your skin type and dissect what your skin is telling you.  What time of year is the wedding? What will the climate be? Is it a destination event? Develop a smart skincare routine as early as possible.

Your daily regime should include:

Cleanse: Use a formula specifically for your skin type whether oily, dry or combination
Tone: This will help smooth skin’s texture and prevent clogged pores
Moisturize: This will help skin stay hydrated and give it that special glow

At least once a week, exfoliate. This will unclog pores and turn over any dead skin cells.

Another recommendation is to schedule monthly or bi-monthly facials. Facials offer you a deep cleaning, increase circulation and stimulate the skin. Don’t forget a little pampering, perhaps a relaxation massage or another stress-relieving treatment to combat any pre-wedding woes.

To ensure flawless perfection, you should drink eight to ten glasses of water per day to flush out any impurities, take your multi-vitamin and have a regular exercise routine.  There are super foods for your face like watermelon, grapefruit, broccoli and lettuce – so head over to the nearest produce section – stat!

The week of the wedding schedule your facial, brow design and plan any hair removal at least four to five days in advance so any resulting redness or swelling can subside. On the big day, schedule a professional make-up application. Trust us – it’s worth it! You will have a great relationship with your skincare specialist at this point and they will know which features to highlight and which to hide so you are your most beautiful you.
