When it comes to your wedding, we’re sure you want to be in the best shape ever – from head to toe. And one slightly temperamental feature, that we’re sure you’re concerned about, is your skin. If you want it to look flawless and glowing on your wedding, we can help. Here are a few ways to get your skin in the best shape.
Drink water, LOTS of it.
Sure, you’ve been told to drink water since you were a kid. But when it comes to your skin and your body on the whole, water works like magic. The best thing you can do, to get the skin of your dreams for your wedding day, is to stay hydrated. Water helps in all essential bodily processes, and prevents issues like acne and dry skin. So keep a bottle handy all the time before, and after your wedding.
Stick to a skincare routine that you are sure works for you.
While we’re all for experimenting when it comes to wardrobe and make-up, stay away from experimentation when it comes to your skin. If you have a skincare routine that you know works for you, stick to it. Also, if you have problem areas, make sure you pay extra attention while taking care of them, pre-wedding.
Stay away from food that messes with your skin.
Another thing to take control of, to get flawless skin for your wedding, is to make sure you eat the right kind of food. If you’re aware of certain foods that cause you to break out, or affect your skin negatively, stay away from them. Stick to food that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, like berries, dark chocolate and fish like salmon, to mention a few.
Take a break from make-up sometimes.
In the time leading up to your wedding, give yourself a few make-up free days. Give your skin some time to breathe, instead of clogging up your pores. The days of your wedding ceremonies are going to be make-up heavy anyway, so in order to prevent any sudden breakouts or skin problems, keep your skin clear of any products. Pat on a tinted moisturiser with SPF, if you need to. And if you are wearing make-up, make sure to remove it completely, at the end of the day, and gently cleanse your face as well.
