It must be on every bride’s mind… how to get perfect skin for your wedding day?
Here’s a few questions to ask yourself,
Do you invest in your skin?
Do you know what skin type you have?
How many steps are in your skin care routine?
Do you make as much effort in the morning as you do at night?
Are you aware of what ingredients you need to use to see results?
One thing you have to ditch our face wipes these are no good neither is micellar water you need to use a cleanser that suits your skin type and cleanse morning and night (religiously) and double cleanse at night if you wear makeup and spf. NEVER SLEEP WITH IT ON!
Oily skin - gel cleanser or a powder cleanser ( you mix it with water )
Normal, dry / dehydrated skin - oil balm or cream
Sensitive skin - milk cleanser or none scented products
Wash off with a muslin cloth to help get everything off ! replace you muslin with a clean one every other day!
Now i would then say to use a glow tonic or a acid toner to help exfoliate your skin and clean deeper into your pores. Acids are the modern day exfoliating products. sensitive skin may be best without acids and a gentle classic exfoliator.
Twice a wk i would pop a mask on at this stage , I think it’s good use a couple of different masks to target different skin needs. I would go for a hydration mask on a morning at the weekend when you might have more time and a weekday evening mask to maybe target any imperfections or one for a lift and tighten.
Next up you want to use a serum both am + pm this step in important and again have a couple of serums that do different thing and mix it up through the week as your skin desires. Vit c is great for the AM routine to help protect your skin through the day. This can be in your serum or in the next step.
And don’t forget to scrub your lips as required, my assistant india will on the wedding morning that’s for sure.
All of this information is your standard day to day!! I would say to invest in a facial at a skin specialist every 4-6 weeks and plan to do these 6 months before the wedding now i know salons are not open atm (LOCKDOWN 0.3 ) and you may want to start if you are getting married in the summer so hopefully you could get a few in before the big day or you may not be getting married until 2022 so you should be fine. When finding a salon make sure they specialise in skin and your not just getting a relaxing facial you want to go and correct any issues or imperfections. I love luna at gresford, kirsty is amazing and my skin always feels good after a bespoke facial at Luna. Hydra facials are good for a deep clean i visit sara at pure perfection if i feel i need that type of treatment, you should see the junk that comes out of your skin!
If you wanted to invest in a home machine that would help with a lift and tone i would opt for nu face, It’s on my wish list! If you would rather go somewhere for a treatment I’ve always wanted to try face gym it looks amazing and it has a wedding package for a bride to be. it’s like taking your face for a work out, hell ya!
When i first left school i trained in hair and beauty so my roots are skin care but make up was calling me in my early 20’s so i left beauty behind and took off with my hair and makeup career which i absolutely love and i can’t actually call it work. 20 years later i am still doing what i left school dreaming to do.
If you would like any help on purchasing a skin care routine or a serum to help target any issues i sell tropic products and i can highly recommend their whole range and advice you on what to use. Drop me an email and we can get going on clear bright skin for your wedding day. Or you can shop here and feel free to ask me any advice.
A couple of last tips…
Take a shot of apple cider vinegar everyday it helps with your gut and a healthy gut = good skin make sure it’s got extra mother in that’s the good stuff!!! I also recommend drinking a shot of collagen 10,000 mg minimum per shot. Not forgetting a good diet and exercise will also give you a healthy glow and no smoking!!!!
I hope you become one of my brides and we meet soon ! Thank you for taking the time to read this and please share with anyone wanting to invest in their skin. Have a great day.
