It’s wedding season! And if you’re a lucky bride-to-be we’ve got some top bridal beauty tips to help get you ready for your big day!
Establish a Facial Skincare Regimen
Your first port of call in your quest for bridal beauty is to get your skin in tip-top shape. You want to be radiant for your special day so make sure you’ve got your daily skincare routine perfected.
Wash your face both morning and night to remove impurities and excess oil. Remember to always take your makeup off before you go to bed. You don’t want your skin to be congested with grime and oil before your big day. Use a gentle eye makeup remover to cleanse your eye makeup without being harsh on the delicate skin around your eye and the deep cleanse your skin to remove any remaining products on the face. If you often suffer from breakouts use a blemish cleanser like the Clear Acne Cleanser with Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide to treat pesky spots.
For bridal beauty (and the rest of your life), we recommend exfoliating 1-3 times per week. We wouldn’t suggest exfoliating anymore than that as otherwise you risk irritating and damaging your skin! If you have oily skin we recommend using the Refresh Facial Polish. For combination skin types, your ideal scrub would be the Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub. If you have dry skin you should use the Brightening Polish and for those with sensitive skin, avoid skin irritation by exfoliating the skin gently with the Gentle Enzyme Exfoliant.
To resurface and renew skin in your bridal beauty routine, use a toner daily to target skin issues. Unclog pores, loosen surface cells and reveal a brighter complexion with a daily toner.
Add a treatment serum to your skin care routine for that added boost of radiance. A serum like the 15% Vitamin C serum can work wonders to not just hydrate the skin but even skin tone, brighten the complexion and improve overall skin health.
You do not want puffy eyes on your big day. So an eye cream is crucial in your bridal beauty routine. We suggest the Eye Restore or the Contour Eye Lift to help improve puffiness, diminish dark circles and reduce the appearance of crows feet.
Bridal beauty means having fresh, healthy skin! Make sure your is skin firm and plump with a good moisturiser. It will help to restore skin’s hydration and promote natural skin functions like collagen production and water retention to keep skin glowing.
We couldn’t talk about any kind of skincare routine without mentioning SPF sun protection. Protecting your skin from UV damage is a must as 80-90% of skin ageing is caused by sun exposure. For dry and sensitive skin use we recommend the Solar Shade SPF50. For all except sensitive skin if you want something a little lighter use the Moisturizing Tint SPF30+.
