Your wedding day is approaching, and there is so much to consider! This means additional stress and preparation on top of the daily routine and the demands at the office. Nothing can be left to chance. After all, this is going to be your big day – a day to remember.
The wedding photos will last a lifetime, and like all brides, you want to look your best. However, unlike many brides, make sure not to neglect your skin. Fresh, healthy skin is the perfect canvas for your bridal makeup- ensuring it looks even better and lasts longer. Great skin will also give you a natural glow on the day.
Here are some top tips to remember before your Wedding Day to ensure you look your best.
- Don’t wait until the last minute
Our skin is the largest organ in the body – stretching from head to toe. Start your skin regime as early as possible, so there is enough time to achieve tip top condition. The sooner you start, the better you’ll look.
- Seek professional help
Don’t do anything radical before your big day! See a Dermatologist for a full skin analysis and evaluation of your daily routine. Visit regulated aesthetic clinics, such as Dr Sian Aesthetics, if you’re considering a non-surgical procedure. They will advise on the right treatments that will be beneficial, subtle and safe.
- Be realistic about your skin issues
Your skin specialist will make recommendations depending on your skin condition (e.g., pigmentation, dull skin, rough skin, loose skin, lines). Listen to them, so you know what your skin really needs and what to realistically expect from any treatment.
- Stick to your routine
Sticking to your recommended beauty routine is just as important as your clinic appointments. Specialists will offer the right treatment but it’s your daily habits that will create the foundation. Make sure your routine includes the basics: wash – moisturize – apply sunscreen. Never neglect your sunscreen, as the sun is a major ageing factor!
- Treat your skin from within
A balanced diet can help your skin look its best. Cutting out harmful foods and adding essential nutrients will help bring out your skin’s natural radiance. And remember, a diet which includes water, fresh fruit and vegetables is good for both the skin and overall body physique.
