Whilst most brides call in the experts to get them ready for their big day, looking like the best possible version of yourself as you say “I do” is all in the preparation. From increasing your greens, stocking up on sleep and giving yourself some well-deserved TLC…
Read on for our top tips to ensure sparkling eyes and a glowing complexion just in time for your wedding day.
Take Your Skin Foods
Most people will find their skin is directly affected by what they eat and drink, so clean up your diet for at least a month (3 months is ideal!) before your wedding day. Start by dropping the coffee, alcohol and sugar and then increase your greens and omega 3 from oily fish or supplements, like this Wild Nutrition Pure Strength Omega 3. You’re sure to notice a big difference in skin tone and texture, not to mention clear, bright eyes. Increasing your greens can be difficult but adding a few green juice days, a serving of greens powder or a cleanse the month prior can really help boast the appearance of clear skin.
Get Your Beauty Sleep
It’s ironic that the one day in your life when you want to look your best is at the time when you are likely to be the busiest and under the most stress. Whatever you do, make sure you get to bed on time! Lack of sleep will show up on your skin overnight. Stop the mental chatter by shutting down your computer and avoiding event planning at least a couple of hours prior to bed. The hours before midnight are the most beneficial – aim to retire by 10pm. We keep Amly Beauty Sleep Mist on hand for nights when sleep is harder to find. The de Mamiel Settle Oil is also a bedside table favourite, helping to still a restless mind.
Make Time for Facial Massaging
Did you know that lift and definition (read cheek bones!) can be enhanced by facial massage? Book a series of facials prior to your big day, but just make sure you time your treatments so that the last deep pore-cleansing one is at least two weeks prior to your wedding day as you will need time to ensure any breakouts have dissipated in time. Don’t forget to request that your treatment includes your décolleté too. Scheduling a course of six treatments will get the best results but you can also boost the effects by doing a simple facial massage at home each evening with an Odacite Gua Sha Crystal and accompanying serum concentrate.
Brush Up for Body
It’s likely that your dress will be showing off more than just your good taste, so don’t forget to give your body some attention. The easiest and best way to get the skin on your body in good condition is with a Hydrea Professional Dry Skin Brush. This stimulates the lymphatic system and gently exfoliates the skin. With some daily dedication, always brushing towards the heart, your skin will literally glow. Brush up on your body brushing technique here.
