The big day is right around the corner. Just like every bride, you want to look flawless. As your wedding day is drawing nearer, you need to give your skin the much-needed attention. However, there are some dos and don’ts that you need to take note of to avoid any last-minute mishaps.
If you’re a bride to be or you have a friend who is, then here are some bridal skincare dos and don’ts you should keep in mind.
DO start early
It takes time for skincare products and skin treatments to work their magic. So the earlier you start working on your skincare the better. It’s better to take the safe approach and give your skincare products the time they need to improve your skin.
DON’T try out a skincare treatment without the help of an expert
It’s tempting to think that you can DIY your way through perfect skin in time for your wedding. Although, I’m not saying it’s not possible to make use of home remedies for great skin, it’s only wise to consult an expert before you start applying homemade skincare treatment on your skin.
Just like other chemical-based skincare products, your skin may react to them differently from others. And taking into consideration that your skin needs to look flawless on your wedding day, not consulting an expert is too much of a risk to take.
DO nourish your skin from the inside
Many women are so focused on the creams and serums to apply on their face that they forget that the skin also reacts to how well it’s being fed on the inside. Let’s face it, topical skincare treatments is only just one way of ensuring beautiful skin. So as you’re working on have perfect skin, make sure you don’t forget to tackle it from the inside.
DON’T use a new facial treatment one month before the wedding
Everyone’s skin works differently. No matter how highly praised or recommended that facial treatment is, stay away. You can never tell for certain that same treatment will work well on your skin. Unless your dermatologist is 100 percent sure that your skin won’t freak out when you apply the new facial, it’s better to not take any chances. You wouldn’t like to end up with a crazy reaction on the big day, would you?
DO remember that one blemish is not the end of the world
You know those moments when you go to bed with clear skin only for you to wake up the next morning with a huge pimple on your nose? Yes, we’ve all been there. Even with all the right products, proper skincare routine and expert advice, no one can guarantee for certain how your skin will look the next day.
So if you see a blemish on your wedding day, just know that it’s not the end of the world. Thank Heavens for makeup artists. Skilled makeup artists know exactly how to cover blemishes that no one will ever know the blemish existed.
I really agree with not using anything new on your skin before big events like weddings! Scary to think if something went wrong and you couldn’t fix it on time!
Yes! Best not to try anything new until after the wedding.
You’re so right about trying product with time to spare…once had a family friend get married, tried a different moisturiser and disaster. Skin reacted, and so very nearly ruined big part of her day. Fortunately she stopped using it early enough to ensure most of the blemishes had gone and could be hidden!
Oh wow 😮
Great advice here, I totally agree if wanting to try new products give your skin time to recover in case you have a reaction
Glad you like it 😊
Right on point. The most common mistake is to get a facial done prior to a big event or try new product. We also tend to overuse products thinking it will help but on the contrary it can cause adverse reactions. Great article.
Thank you 😊
so true about NOT trying new skin care treatment, it can be disaster and it must be with an expert
Yes it can be a disaster.
I had no idea about a facial one month before the wedding! So helpful! This is must read for all the brides to be
Yes it is useful info. Thanks.
This was great skincare advice. I wish I had this advice 10 years ago before I got married. I think my skin would have looked so much better. Also, another don’t that I did was don’t get sunburn on your face 3 weeks before your big day. Sadly that happened to me. We are planning to renew our vows so I keep these tips in mind!
Yes best to avoid the sun before the big day. Thanks Jessica.
Haha that’s what I worry about if I ever get married- BLEMISH! I always break out when Im nervous about something!
Yes many women do.
Skin care before the wedding is really crucial. Well even if it is just an ordinary day, we should always be careful for whatever we apply to our delicate skin.
I agree. Thank you.
This is some great advice which I wish I had known prior to my wedding day, I ended up with a spot the day before and freaked out!
I can imagine.
What great tips for good skincare for the bride’s biggest day.
Great tips! I think trying any product before something like a wedding or other big event is a huge risk. So many horror stories from people in that situation.
Yes I agree. Thank you.
These are great tips, I had a friend use new makeup the day of her wedding and her whole face was so red, she cried the whole time!
Oh my ☹️
You are so right the earlier the better. And using untried makeup is a big no.
Yes it is.
I agree. Don’t just run to new products and especially when you’re going to marry. You shared such a good advice and I am also going to share it with my friends too.
For brides to be, skincare is more important than the often overrated makeup. TO be beautiful, the skin must be naturally ok
Yes it must be. Thanks Sabrina.
