Skin plays a major role in a Bride’s confidence on her big day. We all want the perfect skin for the perfect day, or the closest we can get to that!
Of course, great skin just doesn’t coincidentally happen overnight. With all that wedding planning going on, stress can really affect your skin, or your plans to look after it. So be sure to have a skin regimen, and stick to the plan. Your face on the big day is worth the hassle, trust us!
Here’s what you need to focus on…
Exfoliation is key: Make sure you get rid of that unneeded rough-looking layer of dead skin, in order to reveal the younger, softer skin beneath it. There are many ways to go about exfoliating your skin. We recommend you get a specific scrub that suits your skin type, or visit a spa to get the optimal treatment (Check out our directory for recommended spas) as they offer bridal packages, and they can tell you when is the best time to get exfoliated.
Beauty sleep the night before: You’ve heard this before, over and over again, we know. But it’s a cliché for a reason: it works! Try to avoid caffeine or energy drinks the day (or even the week) before your wedding, to get a few nights of good sleep before the big day. It will do wonders for your skin!
What you eat will show on your skin: Try to eat as many fresh fruits as possible, especially during the few weeks before the wedding. What your body consumes shows almost immediately on your skin; so be sure to eat food that contains vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. Opt for homemade salads, soups, veggies and dips, as well as a handful of almonds or walnuts. Also, a diet that is rich in fiber will help regulate your bowel movement, which in turn contributes immensely to a healthy glowing skin.
A visit to the Dr.: If you have sensitive or problematic skin, be sure to visit your dermatologist early to ensure that your skin is at its best on the most important day of your life.
