Getting ready for your big day? So far, you have everything in check from the venues to the suppliers and vendors to the wedding gown to the exact type of flowers that you want for your bouquet. You have everything you need to make sure your wedding is as perfect as you’d hope it to be.
Now what about your skin? Have you stopped in front of the mirror lately to see how well your skin is coping with all the stress and exhaustion? Of course, you’d want to achieve the perfect look for your special day. And to ensure that, here are some tips that you should follow:
Start as early as you can
Don’t wait until it’s a few days before your wedding before you start taking care of your skin. As early as possible, begin a smart skincare routine that includes daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing. A weekly exfoliation is also necessary. Also, try to avoid those unhealthy skin habits that you used to do such as leaving makeup on overnight or using skincare products made of harsh chemicals.
Get regular professional facials
Apart from your home skincare routine, it’s also a must to get a professional facial at least once a month. A facial refreshes your skin, removes impurities, and gets rid of dullness. It also works in stimulating circulation of blood in the skin, which restores its youthful glow. Choose an experienced aesthetician who uses organic and mild products for facial treatments.
Eat a healthy diet
Hit two birds with one stone by eating a healthy diet from now on. Not only do you get to improve your skin with nutritious foods, this also helps drop unwanted pounds so you’ll look slim and gorgeous in your wedding gown.
Eat more fruits and vegetables, which are rich in antioxidants that neutralize the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are known to trigger premature aging, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. It’s also a good idea to include in your diet foods that are rich in vitamin C and vitamin E. These nutrients promote the production of collagen and help keep the skin firm and tight.
Another professional treatment that’s recommended for brides is microdermabrasion. This method helps the skin by shrinking the pores. It also exfoliates the layers of dead skin cells to reveal fresh looking skin
Protect the skin from the sun
UV radiation emitted by the sun helps the body produce vitamin D, a nutrient that it needs to absorb calcium in the bones and teeth. But here’s the catch: overexposure to UV rays can cause the skin to age prematurely. Not only that, it also shoots up the risk for skin cancer. This is why, it’s imperative to wear sunscreen all the time. Even after your wedding is over, don’t go out without applying sunscreen of at least SPF 30 at least 30 minutes before going out.
Zap those zits away
There are many natural acne remedies that you can try to eliminate those blemishes on your face. Try applying a combination of aloe vera juice and honey on your pimples. Or apply a mixture of yogurt and lemon juice. These natural ingredients contain antibacterial properties that control the microbes causing skin problems like acne.
Being a beautiful bride is possible even with loads of stress. Just follow the tips mentioned here so you can be the most beautiful woman on your wedding day.
