Busy working on all those last-minute adjustments you need to make for your wedding? Don't forget about your skin! Get it to look its best by taking note of these tips.
Don't try new skincare products.
Stick to your holy grail products. Trying something new and combining it with the stress of wedding planning could wreak havoc on your complexion. And who knows how long before it will return to its normal, immaculate state? It's better to be safe than to have a giant zit on your forehead while you're saying your "I dos."
Test the makeup products you plan to use three weeks before.
Our complexions react differently to each product. If you're worried that the primer or foundation you plan to use will break your skin out, wear it three weeks before. This way, if anything does happen, you'll have time to head to the derma and give your skin enough time to heal.
Remember to apply sunscreen.
Sun damage isn't always majorly obvious as it develops over time, but it shows. Don't forget to apply sunscreen all over your face and body with an SPF of at least 30.
Get a facial two weeks before the big day.
In case you didn't know, facials with extractions can irritate your skin or further break you out. To ensure that you're radiant and flawless on the day itself, leave enough time between your special treatment and your wedding day.
Invest in hydrogel eye patches.
Feeling and looking tired is normal on the days leading up to the wedding. If your eye bags suddenly appear too obvious, put on a pair of hydrogel eye patches. In 15 minutes, your sunken, dark circles will be a thing of the past.
Skip the coffee first.
Substitute green tea to get your daily caffeine fix. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, drinking one cup every day will give your skin that blushing bride glow.
