Great skin is a must if you want to be a picture-perfect bride. However, keep in mind that all the stress of planning a wedding can have harsh effects on your skin, not to mention the chaos it can bring to your normal routines!
The best way to keep your skin healthy and glowing is to get enough sleep and to drink enough water. We all know how hard both of these can be, especially the closer it gets to the big day. Even if you manage to get plenty of rest and drink your water, a little extra pampering now will ensure beautiful skin through all those stressful moments. Be sure to start in plenty of advance time – sometimes your skin will react with even more breakouts as it adjusts to the new regimens.
Your Diet. The foods you eat play a big role in breakouts and blemishes. Cut down on greasy foods, caffeine, and alcohol and replace them with more fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Extra fiber in your diet can improve your complexion and reduce breakouts as well.
Cleaning. Keeping your skin clean is the best way to manage breakouts. Use a gentle cleanser in the morning and at night, followed by toner and a good moisturizer. Wash your entire body with a rich exfoliating scrub and apply a moisturizing lotion. Remember to wash your makeup off every night before bed!
Facials. Start scheduling regular facials now and your skin will be at its finest on the big day. Also schedule an appointment with a dermatologist if you have bad problems with acne and breakouts; they can recommend a routine that will clear it up.
Unwanted Hair. Now is the time to decide how you plan to deal with any facial or body hair you won’t need. Hair removal processes can be tough on your skin so it’s best to get this out of the way as far in advance as possible. If you have the budget to splurge on laser hair removal, it could be a big timesaver in the future!
If you want great looking skin on your wedding day, get started now! Ask friends, family, or professionals for recommendations on good cleansers, moisturizers, and other products for your particular skin type. Remember to test new products very early so that you can decide on a skin treatment regimen now and get started. Don’t try new skin care treatments too close to your wedding date in case of adverse reactions or outbreaks.
