Brides want nothing more than to look and feel their best on their wedding day. As they set off to marry the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with, brides would like to be at their most beautiful. They will surely be glowing on their special day, and clear skin will highlight that bridal glow even more.
Healthy glowing skin not only serves as the perfect canvas for makeup, but it also brings out the bride's inner confidence--and so proper skincare should among a bride's priorities.
To help brides achieve that beautiful bridal glow, we asked Dr. Rowena Locsin, owner of R. Locsin Skin & Wellness Clinic, to share skincare tips in preparation for the wedding day.
Know your skin type.
Before applying any product or going for any sort of skin treatment, a bride should identify her skin type. Doing so will allow the bride to know which products or treatments suit her best.
Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize. Protect.
Having a regular skincare regimen is the way to have healthy skin. Dr. Locsin reiterates the importance of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing to keep the skin blemish-free. Most women follow those three steps religiously, but they forget to protect their skin. Dr. Locsin stresses that applying sun block should also be part of the regimen to prevent skin damage from too much sun exposure.
Choose a trust-worthy skincare clinic.
Professional skincare is something that should never be compromised, which is why brides should take time to find reputable clinics to address their needs. R. Locsin Skin & Wellness Clinic offers a unique approach to skincare. In designing unique skincare programs for its clients, R. Locsin's team of experts take into consideration aesthetics, rejuvenation, and wellness. Because the clinic is owned and operated by a physician, the establishment assures its clients that all procedures are medically safe and sound. When brides come in for a consultation or treatment, Dr. Locsin asks them about their work, lifestyle, regimen, and even family history. From the information she gathers, she then puts together a personal skincare program that perfectly fits the bride's needs and budget.
Give skin ample time to recover from treatments.
According to Dr. Locsin, brides must invest in a bridal skin care regimen. Such treatments must begin three to six months before the wedding. Each session should ideally be one to two weeks apart in order to give the skin ample time to change, restore, rebuild, and smoothen. She adds, "Never have a facial within two weeks of your wedding date [as it] can overstimulate your skin and cause break-outs."
