Are you planning a wedding in the next year? Maybe you know someone who is? In the months leading up to your wedding, the stress of wedding planning can get the best of you and your skin, leading to unsightly blemishes or breakouts. To avoid those on your big day, follow these tips to have beautiful skin on your wedding day.
Twelve Months To Go – See your dermatologist or aesthetician and share your skincare concerns. Together, you can formulate a plan for improving your skin. With long-term treatment, remember that it will take time to work, so allow plenty of time for adjustment to find your perfect plan. Now is also a good time to form good skincare habits, like washing your face daily.
Six Months To Go – Follow up with your skincare professional, and stick with what’s working for your skin. If the stress starts to show, take time for yourself to do something that relaxes you, such as yoga.
Three Months To Go – Begin the dress alteration process, and follow up with your dermatologist to make sure you’re on track. Avoid trying out new products so that you don’t have a negative reaction. Schedule a professional body treatment, such as a body thermal mask or a body polish, to get a healthy, exfoliated glow. Test out different self-tanners or a spray tan to find the perfect shade for you.
One Month To Go – Schedule a brightening facial with extractions, which will give you a nourished glow. Schedule your makeup trial and experiment with colors that bring out your best features. Make sure that you’re continuing to budget for skincare products and makeup in the weeks leading up to the wedding.
One Week To Go – Wear sunscreen daily to avoid redness, and get your spray tan. Keep your skin hydrated and bright with hyaluronic acid, an exfoliator, and mineral makeup. Make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep and drinking water consistently.
One Day To Go – Use a hydration mask so your skin will look flawless in photos, and pack your day-of pack early so that you don’t forget any products. Go to bed early, continue drinking water, and eat foods like blueberries and leafy greens that are rich in antioxidants.
Four Hours Before – Make sure that you have make-up wipes on hand, as well as mascara, brow filler, and under eye brightener to keep you looking refreshed. Have your makeup artist use facial shin control and setting powder for an airbrushed look, plus foundation that matches your skin tone and blends in with your neck and collarbone.
While your skin will look flawless after following this skincare guide, remember that the best accessory on your wedding day is a huge smile. Enjoy your big day!
