Looking your best for your wedding day is also about feeling your best,
and with a few beauty tricks, you can go from stressed out “Bridezilla”
to serene, stunning bride in no time. Here are top 5 pre-wedding beauty
secrets that you can start doing 2 or 3 months in advance, that will
have you looking and feeling amazing.
Nail/Toenail Preparation – One important aspect of great looking nails
is proper care, so moisturise, apply hand exfoliators, and always rub
olive oil or other cuticle oil onto your nails and cuticles. Get them
filed correctly, so that you can have the shape that you want, and
continue to go for manicures. Exfoliate your feet too and scrub off dead
skin cells often. Apply a proper heel balm or other lotion to cracked
heels, and also get a weekly pedicure. By the time your wedding comes,
your nails and toenails will be in perfect condition so no last minute
Skin Preparation – Preparing your skin is also vital. You should follow a
good skin care regimen based on the oiliness of your skin. Also apply
facial masks and exfoliate even dry skin. About 1 to 2 weeks before the
wedding, have a deep cleansing pore facial to get rid of all those
impurities that are probably from stress, and then a hydrating and
rejuvenating facial a few days before. You can also try an eye
contouring treatment to brighten up your eyes. Your skin will look great
come wedding day.
Hair Preparation – You want stunning, healthy, gorgeous wedding day
hair, so get it trimmed once a month and ensure that it is the right
length according to the style you are going for. Get deep conditioning
and hair mask treatments regularly. Products are important and when it
comes to haircare you do pay what you get for, we love Kerastase for
Self Tan Preparation – The last thing you want is to be an
orange-glowing bride or boast a lovely red tinge! Get a good mild spray
tan from a professional. Another option for just going a shade or two
darker is to use a tinted moisturiser that naturally adapts to your
skins natural skin tone. Make sure you prepare your skin well in advance
by exfoliating and moisturising well and also look into professional
Hair Removal – So for hair removal you will either get a wax, shave
or opt for a depilatory cream that causes the hair to fall out from the
root. Make sure you do this a week before your big day to give your skin
time to calm down. If you have already had laser hair removal book a
top up appointment for one month before the day to catch any strays.
