A self-care guide for a radiant wedding skin

February 23, 2016

Wedding preparations are continuous excitement, but we all have a clear idea about how that can turn quickly into stress. Your skin knows it all: it dries, it bursts, it asks you to slow down. Here are four tips of daily, loving skincare to let you shine healthily on your very special day and have a radiant wedding skin that will make all your guests wonder whether they remember your age correctly! 

1- YOU KNOW IT’S NOT SIMPLY ABOUT YOUR SKIN

Right? Ask yourself how much and how well you’re sleeping, if you’re hydrating yourself enough, what your diet looks like and how your emotions have flowed recently: lots of ups and downs affect our skin just as well as poor diet or sleep habits. Sounds redundant? Yeah, a bit. Is it redundant? Oh, no.

2- BOOST YOUR SKINCARE PRACTICE

If you want to have a beautiful skin that glows amazingly from afar, remember to give extra care during the entire month before your wedding: snack with watery and juicy fruits and veggies, like watermelon, lettuce, or grapefruits. Also, a warm glass of water with lemon juice and a few drops of honey every morning before breakfast will clean your skin from inside out and give it a healthier outlook, thanks to this extra daily dose of vitamins and antioxidants.

3- BE SPECIFIC WITH YOUR SKINCARE CHOICES

Once you’ve assessed your skin type and current needs, try to be really specific with what you opt for and plan in advance: if your skin is oily and stressed, don’t be too harsh with your cleansing, but invest some time at least once a week in in some natural sea salt intense scrubbing. If your skin is very delicate, be extra-generous with your SPF and wear it everyday, even on your lips. Plenty of time left before your wedding? Schedule some acid peeling sessions with your beauty professional, at least twice a year.

4- SURROUND YOURSELF BY A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT

Your skin stays cleaner if you avoid sponges and cloths for your daily facial washes: they may harbor bacteria, which you don’t really want to host on your face, especially after you cleaned it. Be very consistent and diligent with your make-up removal habits (especially with waterproof eyeliners and mascaras), so that they won’t leave your skin tired and stressed, especially on your eyelids. Remember to wash your make up brushes with a natural shampoo: this will let you prevent rashes much more easily and make-up colors will look brighter too.
