Discovering a spot before the big day is probably every bride’s nightmare. Every bride deserves to look and feel the best on their wedding day. Unfortunately, stress can often cause the skin to act in ways that definitely isn’t wanted in the days leading to the wedding – which is why it’s extremely important to be prepared.
Planning your wedding skincare routine should be just as important as arranging flowers for the wedding, or planning who is going to sit where.
Brides often leave it until a few days before – this isn’t good enough. A good pre wedding skincare routine should be implemented weeks before the wedding to get maximum results.
Use Moisturiser that is Skin Specific
You should choose a moisturiser that is best for your specific skin. If you have oily skin, choosing something that is aimed at dry skin won’t help you. Most products will include information on the skin type that it’s aimed for so just check out the packaging beforehand.
For those who do suffer with dry skin, we recommend the Obagi Medical Hydrate facial moisturizer. It provides hydration for the skin that lasts the whole day. It helps to combat dryness without clogging up your pores.
Wash Your Makeup Brushes
Every time you use your makeup brushes on your face, you add a layer of bacteria to your skin. It’s this bacteria that will cause blemishes and outbreaks of spots and pimples. This is because your brushes constantly pick up bacteria from the skin and then you just transfer it straight back when using them.
You should wash them using shampoo. Just apply the shampoo, rinse it off and then leave them to dry naturally (with the bristles facing down).
Have a Salt Scrub
There is nothing more invigorating than a remineralising salt scrub – especially when you have a big day coming up. We suggest that you do this around a week before your wedding, just in case your skin has any negative reaction to it.
Salt scrubs generally use organic products which are abrasive on the body. This will get rid of dead skin cells and leave the skin smooth and glowing.
Have a Professional Facial
If you still feel like your skin could do with a little more TLC before your wedding day, we suggest that you book yourself in for a professional facial. Getting married is the perfect excuse to splurge out on a little pampering – so don’t feel guilty for spending money. The beauty professional will remove all the grime from your pores, as well as massage your skin so that it’s feeling and looking smooth.
