Wedding preparations are stressful, period. When you are the future bride, you’re supposed to look all radiant and glowy, share smiles with everyone around you and keep it all together like a classy lady. Yeah, right! You have a ton of things to do, your mother-in-law doesn’t agree with your choice of wedding colors, and you have the worst skin breakout in history. Don’t worry; at least there is time to repair the damage on your skin. Here is how:
This is the right time for a splurge. You are the future bride, so no one has the right to object (you might not want to mention this to your future husband, though). Schedule weekly treatments with a great beauty therapist and purchase the recommended products. High-quality skincare makes a real difference.
2. Stick to a routine!
You need to get serious about your skincare regimen. Use those products religiously. If possible, pause from applying makeup on a daily basis and allow your skin to breathe. Cleanse your face twice a day, use the right products as instructed and no bridesmaid will dare to outshine you at the wedding.
3. Hydrate and exfoliate!
Having a skin breakout doesn’t mean that you need to dry out your skin by applying aggressive lotions. Do you know when makeup artists lose their minds? When a client shows up with lifeless, dehydrated skin that hasn’t been exfoliated and hydrated for ages. If you start preparing your skin weeks before the important day, the makeup artist will be able to apply the products effortlessly.
4. Eat well!
With the hectic schedule you are going through, it’s easy to forget all about your pledge to eat healthy. Trust me: you’ll feel much better about yourself if you start using that juicer in your kitchen regularly. Eat more fruits and vegetables and less ice cream, and you’ll see how your skin will appreciate the efforts. Oh, and don’t forget to drink lots of water!
5. Rest and smile!
It’s easier said than done, but you really need to relax. The condition of your skin is a reflection of everything you feel and experience. Delegate some of your responsibilities and stop freaking out about every single detail. Now is the time to start doing yoga or pilates – that time you devote to yourself will result with a happier and more beautiful version of you.
Remember: you will be the star of this special event and you deserve to treat yourself well before the important day. Masks, creams, scrubs, toners, facials… everything counts! Those pimples will be a bad memory before you know it.
