So, you’ve planned the perfect spring wedding. Now all you have to do is get ready for it. Of course, for such a special (and well photographed) occasion, it’s only natural to want to look your absolute best. To ensure you look sensational on your big day, we’re sharing our top spring wedding beauty prep tips. Incorporate these expert hints into your skincare routine for a gorgeous, glowing and bridal-worthy appearance.
1. Try A Clinical Peel
What bride doesn’t want to appear radiant and beautiful on her wedding day? To ensure your glow is on-point and your skin looks fabulous, try a customised Clinical Peel tailored to your unique skin type and concerns, in the weeks leading up. Vital for reviving tired, dull skin, a clinical peel is like a super-exfoliant. The treatment works by gently sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal the fresh new layers below. Just remember to book in for any clinical peels early. A month or so before your big day is ideal as it will allow you to receive a stronger peel with enhanced benefits without any need to worry about recovery time.
2. Maintain Your Skincare Routine
In the week’s leading up to your wedding, it’s important to maintain your usual skincare routine. After all, now’s certainly not the time to slack off and skip your morning cleanse. For at least two weeks before the big day, be sure to diligently cleanse, tone and moisturise every morning and night. Also, continue to regularly exfoliate and use other products, such as serums, as normal. As well as making sure you don’t neglect your regular routine, you should also be wary of altering it. Suddenly adding a sleuth of new products to your beauty regime can be a recipe for disaster.
3. Practice Self-Care
What’s the best wedding beauty prep tip of all? To stay healthy in the lead-up to the day. It may sound simple, but it’s paramount. Radiant and beautiful skin comes from within, so it’s essential that you take care of yourself as the big day approaches. This means eating well, drinking plenty of water, exercising, avoiding alcohol and cigarettes and getting plenty of sleep. Also, try to keep your stress levels low. Although weddings can cause serious anxiety, especially for brides, stressing before the day won’t do your skin any favours. So, be sure to carve out some relaxation time to help you chill out when needed.
4. Exfoliate Before Your Tan
If you plan to receive a fake tan for your wedding day, be sure to exfoliate beforehand. Fake tan can stick to areas where dry and dead skin cells have built up, creating inconsistent dark patches. By sloughing them away with a gentle exfoliator before the application of your tan, you’ll help ensure the formula goes on smooth and evenly for a flawless, natural-looking appearance.
5. Book A Hydrating Facial
A lack of moisture can be detrimental to your skin. As well as dryness and flaking, it can also cause dullness, increased sensitivity, sagging, dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles and more. As such, our hydrating boost facial can be a fantastic way to reinvigorate your skin for this special occasion. As well as giving your complexion a boost, booking in for facial can also be a great way to relax and pamper yourself in the lead-up to your wedding.
6. Consider Anti-Wrinkle Injections
If you’re worried about pesky crow’s feet ruining your wedding photos, you may want to consider Anti-wrinkle Injections before the big day. Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, proven and immediately effective way to reduce wrinkles. They work by injecting natural proteins into key areas, which stimulates the overlying skin to smooth out. They can minimise lines and wrinkles to achieve a youthful and gorgeous appearance. Of course, be sure to book in early for anti-wrinkle injections injections with our Cosmetic Nurses. The full results kick in 7-14 days after your treatment.
