If you haven’t noticed by all of the photos popping up on your Facebook newsfeed, wedding season is upon us! We all know at least one bride, bride-to-be, or you may be a bride yourself. Brides are so busy planning the details of the venue, the flowers, the dinner, the cake, the DRESS, that they sometimes forget to give that special attention to the most important part of their wedding day – their skin! After all, what good are the flowers, delicious cake, and gorgeous dresses if your skin isn’t in top shape for the big day?
Whether you’re a year away from walking down the aisle, or just one week, here are a few tips to help get your skin glowing, healthy, and beautiful.
Plan Ahead and Get a Routine
Planning a wedding takes time, right? It takes time and a lot of effort. Remember to add a skincare regimen into your planning, and you’ll be right on track for glowing skin on your wedding day. It’s a good idea to get a plan in place and not switch it up at least 6 months before your wedding. This will make sure you don’t have any bad reactions to a change in skincare products or routine. It’s also important to plan any waxing appointments or facials one week before the day in case your skin becomes red or inflamed. IMAGE Skincare has a number of product lines that are set up specifically to complement each other and create the perfect regimen for your unique skin type.
No matter what your skincare routine, it’s important for all skin types to exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! When you remove dead skin, blackheads, and impurities from your face and body, your skin will be left glowing for those wedding pictures. Try to exfoliate at least once a week to get the best results.
Stress can have a negative effect on the health of your skin, so make sure you take a few minutes each day to breathe. It’s easy to get overwhelmed while planning a wedding. There are so many decisions to be made and last-minute problems to be solved. It’s the perfect recipe for stress! Try taking a yoga class once a week, or take advantage of quiet time in your car or in the shower. Take some time for you, and your skin will thank you!
Get your Beauty Sleep
The night before your wedding, skip the alcoholic beverages, and opt for water with lemon. Go to bed early, and get your beauty sleep! Sleep is so important for glowing, healthy skin. What a better way to start your big day than being well-rested and ready to make your grand entrance!
Bring an “Emergency Kit”
Don’t forget to pack a bag with all of the necessities for last-minute fixes and touch-ups. Make sure you include dental floss, hair pins, extra earring backs, tissues, tweezers, mini concealer, lipstick, clear nail polish (to stop runs), safety pins, breath mints and a bottle of water.
Most importantly, don’t forget your beautiful smile, and remember, no matter what happens on your big day, you are starting the journey of a lifetime with your best friend. Relax, let things go, and enjoy the day!
