You’ve both made it through the fun and hard part of your relationshipーgetting him to pop the question and putting that glowing ring on her finger. Now, it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty of looking gorgeous on your ‘big day.’ We’re talking about having the best skin, hair, and nails for your wedding as you make your way down the aisle.
For one thing, before you say “I do,” you want to look your best and bring out your inner radiance on your ‘big day’ ー from smoothing your skin to strengthening your hair.
So, if you’re getting married in the U.S. and don’t know how, when, and with what to start your pre-wedding skincare routine, you’re in the right place.
Here, you’ll discover all the natural beauty and skincare products you need to keep your skin fresh and glowing during the lead-up to your wedding day.
When to start your pre-wedding skincare routine
It’s best to start your pre-wedding skincare routine around 3 to 6 months before your ‘big day.’ This will give your skin enough time to adjust to changes to your routine and bring about the beauty you’re looking for.
For one thing, the earlier you start your pre-wedding skincare routine and stick to it, the better the results you’ll get. What’s more, planning long enough will reduce your risk of experiencing sensitivity or a skin reaction just before or on the best day of your life.
7 tips for a simple pre-wedding skincare routine to follow
1. Sweat it out
Six months in advance, you want to make sure you’re keeping fit so you can have just the right shape you need for your big day. Start off with basic lifestyle changes like walking a few thousand steps daily before moving to a more extensive workout. Incorporate both cardio and strength training workouts for best results.
2. Stick to healthy eating habits
When it comes to food, you can’t afford to be playing around. Starve yourself and you’re going to break down, binge, and look cranky and miserable. If you want to be in your best shape, aim to have a healthy meal or snack every three to four hours. For best results, visit a nutritionist to guide you through a wellness plan that gives your body and skin what it needs.
3. Visit a dermatologist
Be smart early on and visit a dermatologist who will examine your skin and suggest the right treatments you need. They can also come up with a strategy to achieve your dream skin goals, be it zapping acne or softening pesky forehead wrinkles.
4. Cleanse, tone & moisturize
Cleansing gets rid of the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, and prepares the skin for soaking in nutrients. Use any gentle cleanser like our Lotion Florale Facial Lightening Cleanser that works for all skin types to clean your skin. Toning just before bedtime helps to soothe and calm your skin and tightens your skin pores. So, go get yourself a toner that is best suited for your skin type. Lastly, moisturizing your skin every time you wash your face helps to replenish and hydrate your skin. Choose a moisturizer that works for your skin.
5. Exfoliate regularly & follow up with a brightening serum
Dead skin can cause dull skin and make you look cranky on your big day. Exfoliating regularly and using a brightening serum will give you the best lit-from-within glow on your wedding day. Consider exfoliating once a week initially, and advancing to twice a week after a month.
6. Nourish your skin, starting in the shower
Your skincare routine truly starts in the shower with a gentle cleanser. Try using Lotion Florale Facial Lightening Cleanser which is made with 100% gentle cleansers and provides softer smoother skin. Get in the habit of gently patting your skin dry instead of rubbing and applying lotion within minutes of getting out of the shower so you can lock in moisture before it evaporates.
7. Good sleep is everything
This is the right time to drop all the stress and get those 8 hours of rest every day. For one thing, sleep is the third pillar of health and will make you feel relaxed before and on your wedding day.
You’re ready for your big day
When it comes to looking your best and giving off the right radiance on your wedding day, creating a skincare routine and sticking to it is everything. Follow this pre-wedding skincare routine and watch your big day turn into your best day ever.
