10 Apr The Bride-To-Be Guide To Preparing Your Skin For Your Big Day
It is no secret that every single bride wants to look her best on her big day.
Of course, a make-up artist is going to be able to work her magic on the day itself, but it is all down to you to make sure that your skin is the perfect base for her to work on.
Prepping your skin for your wedding day needs to start about 6 months before you say I do, so to help you to figure out what you need to do, we have put together our guide on the things that you need to do to make sure that you are a glowing and radiant bride.
6 months to go
The worst thing that you can do is to try out a new face care product or technique just before your wedding day.
Instead, you should get your skin used to what you are going to be using and give it plenty of time to work.
It is a good idea to give yourself time to add a weekly mask to your routine, and if you can, give yourself a gentle steam too, as this will really help the products you are going to be using to absorb into your skin.
4 months to go
As you have been trying your skincare routine for a couple of months now, chances are that you are going to see the results that you are looking for.
Once your skin feels better, then you may want to try out a facial massage, this can be done by a professional, but if you want to keep costs down, then you might want to treat yourself to a roller, which will help to make sure that your skin feels great.
2 months to go
You might want to add in a touch of gentle exfoliating into your routine now.
It is important that you do use gentle techniques and products as the last thing that you are going to want is for your skin to go from glowing to looking sore and irritated.
After you have exfoliated, you can then apply plenty of face moisturiser which can be absorbed into the skin.
2 weeks to go
When the wedding is just around the corner it can be all too easy to let that skin care routine go out of the window.
It is more important now than ever, so make sure that you keep it up.
You also need to make sure that you keep your fluids up too.
Water and green tea are the best to help rehydrate your skin, so make sure that you are drinking plenty of these.
The night before
Give your skin one last treat, apply a face mask that you have been using already and let your worries soak away in a nice (not too hot) bath.
The worst thing that you can do is stress yourself out, so try and relax and look forward to the day that you have ahead.
By following these top tips you can make sure that your skin looks as beautiful as possible and that you feel ready to walk down the aisle to meet your brand new husband.
