Sure! There are thousands of decisions to make and tasks to tackle while planning your wedding. Some need to be addressed early in the planning stages, like booking your venue, photographer, and other vendors, but one thing you shouldn’t leave till the last minute is your skincare routine. Brides wanting to have glowing skin on their wedding day have to implement a facial routine months before their event. And today, we’re going to give you all the tips you need to have ultra-radiant skin at your wedding.
How Can Brides Achieve a Wedding Day Glow?
First, you have to understand that achieving glowing skin requires some extra-special attention. We know you have a regular, everyday routine, but to get your skin in top-notch condition before your dream wedding, there are a few other treatments you can add to get that super bridal glow. Wedding planning can be stressful and tiring, resulting in us forgetting to take care of ourselves and even creating a few extra bad habits. To help you get that radiant, glowing skin, you desire, follow this guide.
Eat a Healthy Diet
When our busy lives are consumed by work, kids, sports, and social media eating a healthy diet can be challenging. And when you throw wedding planning into the mix, healthy food can seem to disappear. You have meetings with vendors after work and tons of decisions to make, so what might have usually been a home-cooked meal quickly turns into pizza night or pick up fast food on the way home.
We get it! We’re all in this rat race we call life, and having the convenience of having someone else cook for you is tempting. But the sad actual facts are – fast food is generally not healthy. Dieticians and doctors will tell you that the primary key to beautiful skin lies in what you eat.
So, do yourself a favor. Quickly after becoming engaged, begin enjoying a healthier diet. It will undoubtedly help you achieve the radiant, glowing skin you want for your wedding day. And of course, it’s ok to cheat “once in a while.”
Below are some other skincare treatments that you can implement that will also help.
Facials are a great way to get your skin wedding day ready. But one facial is not enough. To get your skin in tip-top shape, schedule monthly facials to really get your skin refreshed and looking fantastic. Why are facials essential? Aestheticians around the country will tell you facials help stimulate blood circulation, creating a healthy glow.
If exfoliation is not part of your regular skincare routine, now is the time to add it. Having healthy skin that radiates means getting rid of dead cells and dry skin to unleash the new, younger-looking skin cells. And while exfoliation should be a regular treatment, make sure not to overdo it. Twice a week is enough. More than that can damage your skin. Skin health experts such as Kate Somerville help educate users on what type of exfoliators exist, how often you should exfoliate your face, and the best way to incorporate them into your life
There is no doubt your wedding day will be the absolute most photographed day of your life. And if you suffer from large pores that you want to minimize, micro-dermabrasion can help. You can’t actually change your pores’ size, but with mirco-dermabrasion, you can help reduce your pores’ depth, which will give the illusion they are smaller.
Acid peels are designed to remove dead skin and bring new, vibrant, and fresh skin to the surface. But trust us when we say acid peels are not for everyone. The process of doing an acid peel can leave your face flaking and peeling. Not a good look when you have to go to work and definitely not on your wedding day. So, make sure you do not do an acid peel close to your wedding day. Your skin needs time to molt and repair completely.
Water is the key to life. Without it, we and our skin die. So it is essential to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Trust us, we know the weeks leading up to your wedding will be busy and simple things like drinking fluids may fall to the side. But being fully hydrated is proven to help plump skin cells, which help to provide glowing skin. It is a must at least a few weeks before your wedding.
Sweat & Exercise
Sweat is gross, we know. And while you’re planning your wedding, you may not have too much extra time to exercise and get your sweat on. But sweating is the key to flushing out all of the impurities that live in the dermal layer—these include everything from old makeup to pollutants and dirt. Regular sweating can improve the clarity, tone, and texture of your skin.
Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day, and having glowing skin is undoubtedly a way to do it. If you can find time and dedication to adding these simple skincare treatments to your daily routine, your skin should be glowing in no time.
