10 Tips On How To Get Your Skin In Top Notch Shape Before Your Wedding !

By


Everyone wants a glowing skin for the walk down the aisle, but how do you achieve this? We have the inside scoop from the experts—when to schedule facials and treatments before the 'I dos' as well as beauty basics like how to tame breakouts fast. Keep scrolling for skincare habits guaranteed to give you that bridal glow.

1. Assess Early
  1. If you really want to get your skin in top form, it's recommended that you start a smart skincare routine about a year in advance. It's okay if you don't have that long before the wedding day—just adopt these good skincare habits as soon as possible.
    2. Schedule Professional Facials
    Your wedding is the perfect excuse for some extra pampering. You'll want to book monthly facials to really refresh your skin. Experienced aestheticians will massage your skin, scalp and decolletage to stimulate blood circulation and keep your skin looking healthy. You can also request extractions. This is when your facialist gets all the dirt out of your pores. The process takes preparation and special techniques that, if done at home, can lead to irritation, or worse, scarring. 
    3. Manage Excess Facial Oil 
    If you're on the go, blotting papers will help keep your face shine-free. If you need a more advanced grease solution, streamline your routine. Use a mild face wash, skip the toner and add a lightweight oil-free moisturizer. Excessive face washing will kick oil production into overdrive.



  2. 4. Eat Super Foods
    No matter what your skin type is—oily, dry, normal or a combo— it craves water. Sure, drinking water helps, but snacking on naturally hydrating foods like watermelon works too. Other super foods for your face? Try grapefruit, cucumbers, tomatoes.
    5. "Shrink" Your Pores With Microdermabrasion
    We want to give it to you straight, so first, the bad news: You can't actually change the size of your pores. The deeper a pore is, the bigger it looks on the skin's surface. The good news: You can minimize the depth of your pores to make them seem smaller. Microdermabrasion, glycolic acid, and other chemical peels will exfoliate layers of bad skin and minimize pore surface.
    6. Use Salt Scrubs to Soften Elbows
    This is the one thing most brides forget about. Add a bath to your weekly routine and throw in bath salts with sodium bicarbonate. "The sodium bicarbonate will break down dry patches and make your skin a sponge for moisture," For really tough patches, ask an aesthetician to put a glycolic peel on your elbows when you go in for a facial.
  3. 7. Wear SPF 30...On Your Lips
    It's easier to prevent your lips from getting chapped than it is to repair them if they're already dry and cracked. If you spend lots of time outdoors, especially in windy, sunny or cold weather, a thick balm with SPF 30 will keep your lips hydrated.
    8. Use Skin-Specific Moisturizer
    All moisturizers are not created equal. Look for one that caters to your skin concerns. For oily skin, you don't want to add much more moisture, but you do want to hydrate. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or ferulic acid, both of which help your skin maintain water. For dry skin, stick with the hyaluronic acid or ferulic acid, but don't worry about finding an oil-free formula. Your skin craves moisture. For breakout-prone skin, choose a moisturizer that's noncomedogenic. It should say so on the bottle. For sensitive skin, your go-to is a fragrance-free product. 
    9. Deep Clean With a Mask
    A mask isn't meant to replace your daily face-washing routine; it's only meant to enhance it. "Since it stays on longer, a mask will help melt the hard sebum (or oily substance) in your pores, something washing alone won't do,"  If your skin is oily, use a mask every other day. If you have dry skin, once or twice per month should keep oil and dirt from building up. 
  4. 10. Use an Eye Cream With Light Diffusers
    In many cases, dark under-eye circles are hereditary. So the only way to reduce their appearance is with makeup. Start with an eye cream that has light diffusers, which reflect light to make the eye look brighter. Then, use concealer only on the dark spots. Look for one that matches your skin tone exactly, not one that's a shade lighter—that can make your attempt to conceal even more noticeable. Remember to dab lightly to avoid tugging on delicate eye areas.
