5 Week Wedding Day Beauty Treatment Countdown
This is the day you’ve been waiting for your entire life; the dress is picked out, the band is booked, and everyone has sent in their RSVP. There’s only one thing left to worry about…
Your appearance is one of the most important details of your magical wedding day and with all the planning, calling, tasting, and picking, you might find it difficult to find the time for your own preparations. Luckily, this simple primping schedule will help you find the time you need to look your best.
Everyone knows a good tan makes us appear more toned and healthy. It also makes a white dress and a white smile pop. That’s why you should begin building up a tan as early as five weeks before your wedding date. This gives you over a month to gradually deepen your skin tone without causing any burns. Don’t forget to moisturize before and after each tanning session. Or go the natural route and use and organic self-tanner to gradually build up a golden sun kissed colour. A product we love is Lavera’s Organic Self-Tanning Lotion €15.89 at most health stores.
Smooth is sexy in this day and age, so make a hair removal appointment at four weeks until the wedding. This will allow your skin time to heal, and any discomfort or itchiness will subside in time for your huge day. Waxing is the preferred hair-removal method; the process is speedy and the results last up to two months. You can have virtually any part of your body waxed so feel free to splurge on an all-over waxing.
Three weeks before your wedding, focus on hair. Take a day to go to your favorite salon. Get a cut and color, or at least nix your dead ends. When you arrive to your home, soak your hair overnight in warm coconut oil. Coconut oil is an all-natural miracle oil that will tame frizzy locks, strengthen weak or brittle hair, create a healthy sheen, and the best part is that it’s inexpensive and smells like a day at the beach.
Make a facial appointment two weeks before the big day. Chemical peels are a great way to slough off dead skin cells, but they can cause redness. That’s why it is very important to give your skin some time to calm down before the ceremony. Your fresh, glowing skin will have all eyes on you. At home, raw sugar and olive oil make a great all-over scrub for touchable, supple legs.
The nails make the outfit, and classy nails will complete your wedding day look. French heart tips are edgy and flirty, classic french tips are oh-so classy, and a nude or clear polish says you’re confident with your own natural beauty. Make the appointment for your nails one week ahead of time so you don’t have to feel rushed on decision making concerning nail colors, lengths, and styles.
Your day is almost here, and you deserve for people to know just how stunning you really are. Drop their jaws at your ceremony by following this plan. You (and your new partner) will be thrilled that you did.
