BRIDAL BEAUTY: Pre-Wedding Skin Care

Preparing for your wedding day can be an incredibly stressful time for many ‘brides to be’.  To help you out, we have created a series called ‘Bridal Beauty’.   Bridal Beauty’ is a series of beauty tips that will help you to alleviate some of the pressure.  We want you to sit back, relax and enjoy the process of prepping for your walk down the aisle.

The team at SoCo Events has held the hands of many brides through the process of creating their bridal beauty regiment and appointments.   We are here to share with you some of our wisdom and best wedding day beauty practices.

We started our series with Bridal Beauty: Hair Tips.  Today, we are going into the second part of our series with ‘Bridal Beauty: Pre-Wedding Skin Care’.   It’s never too soon to start a healthy skincare regimen.

·       You definitely want your skin to glow on your wedding day!  The happiness you are feeling on the inside will shine through and help you out in this regard, somewhat. ;) You want to make sure to eat “clean” in the months leading up to you wedding day.  What you put in your body has more of an affect on your skin than any product or treatment will ever have.  By “clean”, eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and remember drink plenty of water.  We like to follow the “8x8 rule”, which is 8 glasses of 8 oz. of water each day.  Adding lemon to your water is a tip I always give my brides…it works wonders for your skin.

·       Schedule all tweezing/waxing/threading appointments for at least 7 days out from your wedding day.  Be careful to stay consistent with what has worked well with your skin type in the past – if soy wax leaves your sensitive skin with zero redness or irritation, make sure to stick with this proven method of hair removal.  The last thing you want to do is have a reaction to a new product right before your wedding.

·       Six months out from your wedding is a great time to try a new treatment – microderm, oxygen facials, and collagen treatments. You have enough time to recover if your skin reacts poorly to a new or more extensive treatment.  If you love your microderm, you can continue with treatments in the months and weeks leading to your big day. If you are thinking of trying something a little more serious, like botox/other fillers – do so around this 6-month out mark as well. You cannot predict how you will react to new treatments, so do not risk having to deal with bumps and bruising weeks before your wedding.  Keep in mind that most fillers take around 10 days to work their magic.

·       One of the most important things you can do to achieve a beautiful glow on your wedding day, is to get a professional airbrush tan – for your fiancé (unless he and Ricky Martin are similar skin tone ;).  You don’t want to be beautifully bronzed standing next to your pasty groom!  Spread the color and book a package with BronzedBerry that covers you both. Make sure to keep a natural color, which should be easy with BronzedBerry – they have amazing organic formulas – think no orange and no smell!  Your color should also correlate with the season in which you are tying the knot.  It will look much more natural to have deeper color if your wedding is in July, rather than January. A little color will work wonders for your confidence on your wedding day.  It will ensure you and your soon to be hubby look fabulous in all the days pictures!
