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.
