Six Tips for Picture Perfect Skin on your Wedding Day

You’ve chosen the perfect venue, a celebrant to share your love story, a dress you love with shoes to match, flowers to brighten the day and a cake to send the taste buds tingling. You’ve thought about everything… haven’t you?

There is one aspect of a wedding day a lot of brides overlook, Skin Preparation.

Skin Preparation in the lead up to your wedding is extremely important to ensure you are positively glowing on your wedding day. Here are our top 6 tips to ensure your skin looks its best when you walk down the isle.

1. Planning

Sort out your skin routine early in the planning stage, the sooner the better. For best results, have a facial and ask for professional advice on the best plan for your skin. Monthly facials leading up to the big day are beneficial. Facial massages help with circulation, bringing oxygenated blood to the surface and plumping the skin.

2. Shock your skin

A little ‘shock’ to the skin regularly is good for the overall health of your skin. This can be in the form of a whole product range change every 6 months or just switching up one or 2 products regularly. You may not realise it, but your skin becomes familiar to the same thing day in and day out. The active ingredients stop having a big affect on the skin. A simple tweak from time to time reminds the skin not to get comfortable, that it still needs all the goodness it’s getting to function properly and keep that youthful radiant glow.

3. Don’t change too close to Wedding Day

Change too close to your wedding date however can have an adverse effect! From two months prior to the wedding you want to keep your skin regime the same to be safe.

4. Exfoliate

Exfoliating at least twice a week is the key to vibrant looking skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin from the surface and unplugs pores. It can minimise the appearance of fine lines and revitalise and brighten for a smooth, clear radiant complexion. Exfoliating helps the skin to absorb the active ingredients easier within your skin care routine.

5. Keep Hydrated

Sounds simple right? Did you know that the skin is the largest organ of the body and the last organ to receive hydration? Once you’ve reached your daily quota of water intake, just have one more glass, a drink of water especially for your skin.

6. Use a Masque

Often left out of a home skincare routine, a mask twice a week will dramatically increase the elasticity of your skin. Packed with concentrated vitamins and nutrient rich ingredients masks penetrate deeply into the skin and can specifically target a problem area for you.

Follow these steps leading up to your wedding day to ensure your skin is picture perfect and radiant. If in doubt, ask a skin care professional. It’s your big day and nothing says “I Do” like youthful and glowing skin of the blushing bride!
