But understandably, every bride-to-be has an urge to do her absolute best in the weeks before the wedding (or months, more like it!) to prevent any skin or hair disasters when the time comes for the walk down the aisle. In all the chaos of choosing the right invitations, flowers, and menu, here’s a done and ready list to be your trusty beauty sidekick as the countdown begins!
Ah, so many celebratory drinks, and as many stressful decisions perfect for cupcake cravings. But if you want your skin to truly glow, you will need to make a few sacrifices months before the big date. Not to mention that your figure will be equally grateful, as well as your dressmaker!
Ditch those processed sugars and stick to healthy carbs from fresh fruits and veggies, they will fuel your complexion from within with antioxidants and protect you from early lines, spots, zits and other irritation. Don’t get skimpy on protein, either, because it’s the key component in keeping your skin-tone, texture, and elasticity.
A weekly scrub is something every beautician tells their clientele for your normal skincare regime. Yet few ladies stick to their plan religiously (although they should), so now that you’re on a journey to flawless skin, no more skipping of the scrubs!
Once a week, you can visit a professional beauty salon, shop for a skin-friendly solution or make a scrub yourself – ingredients such as fine-ground coffee, sugar, sea salt and oats mixed with yogurt, honey and other generous substances can do wonders for deep-cleansing your pores.
Yet another preventative moment just to be on the safe side – keep those rough elbows and knees regularly moisturized, and your precious lips sun-safe with SPF 30. When it comes to your nails, it’s best to treat yourself to a professional mani and pedi for a few months before the wedding. Try out different shapes, lengths, colors and textures before you land on your wedding-perfect one!
Don’t forget your eyebrows and lashes, they deserve special attention, too. Keep them neat and you can even test out fake lashes to check if you’d maybe like that look for the big day, or if you’d prefer a different mascara, Lash Power by Clinique and Bobbi Brown’s Eye-Opening are big on the market now. Finally, don’t neglect your pearly whites, perhaps a cleaning or whitening session are in order, but first check with your dentist, of course, to avoid damaging your enamel.
As much attention you devote to your gorgeous complexion, you’ll need to go double when it comes to choosing the right makeup and skincare essentials. Your diet will do plenty of work for you, but taking care of those environmental factors such as constant exposure to pollution and stress becomes crucial in the months before the wedding.
Pamper your face with nourishing ingredients such as those found in the Napoleon Perdis foundation. Products based on minerals, such as magnesium, zinc and iron, will help you moisturize your skin and give you a plump look.
Among so many treats you plan to spoil yourself with over the next few months, there’s a new kid in town, and it seems to be winning over the beauty market! The treatment is called a microcurrent facial, and it uses light electric currents to give your face a workout for a more youthful, less puffy look.
You want all those sleepless nights to be erased from under your eyes and get the restful, wrinkle-free look of Princess Aurora? Well, your face will love this special facial treatment, especially if you start early for the results to become visible.
Just remember – no matter which makeup you choose, which shoes you pick or the hairstyle you wear, you will undoubtedly be the most beautiful creature on that special day, thanks to the glimmer of excitement in your eyes and the love-laden smile you won’t be able to hide!
