Radiance on the big day is what every bride and groom wants. Results are dependent on having excellent results driven skincare. You need to start at least six months before your big day.
Everyone’s skin is different so everyone’s regimen will be different and dependent on what is most important for them – firming, elimination of fine lines and so on.
As for injectables, such as botulinum or fillers, if you’ve never used them, 6-8 months before the wedding is the time to start them. If you use them regularly, aim to have a treatment no later than a month before the day.
In the final weeks, use a weekly face mask such as the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque, which is hydrating, calming and restores radiance. If you are prone to the odd pimple use a clay mask directly on the blemish to heal it.
What about the other areas of skin on show in a wedding dress, the décolletage and neck?
The face and neck as a single unit and treat them the same. AHAs that are suitable for your face, also ok for your neck, particularly if you are worried about pigmentation. Don’t use chemical peels or retinol in the week before the wedding because it may cause flaking or drying, which will affect the look of your make-up.
If you are using a make-up artist, don’t let them use products, such as a primer, that they haven’t allowed you to trial in advance. It’s not the time to discover that you are allergic to a particular product.
Some people say don’t use mineral sunscreens on your face because they make you look a bit chalky in photos. Use a sunscreen that’s appropriate for sensitive skin, such as SkinCeuticals Sheer Mineral UV Defence.
The weeks leading up to a wedding are some of the most stressful in your life, so not surprising that you break out in a rash or get a big shiny spot.
If you normally use SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective, it will help calm and hydrate your skin as it has a good content of hyaluronic acid along with antinflammatory properties.
