Preparing your skin before your wedding makes sure your skin is the best it can look before your big day. You might find a few months before the wedding you have been trying out different skincare products to see what gives you the best results, but remember to stick to the same skincare routine for about 1 month before the wedding. The worst thing is trying out a new product a few weeks before the wedding and having a reaction to it.
Along with your skincare routine, you also need to have a think about what treatments you want to use in the last few days before your wedding. I have three key beauty products I will be using the night before / the wedding day to make sure my skin is looking it’s best. So let’s take a look.
Liz Earle – Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask
This face mask is amazing for when your skin needs a big drink of water. I love using this in the winter months but also when my skin just needs a bit more hydration. I find when my skin is a bit dry my make-up can look quite cakey on my face, which is not the look I want on my wedding day. I am going to use this on the morning of my wedding day to give my skin that top up of moisture and allow me to have a few minutes to myself before all the madness begins.
The Ordinary – Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
This is a serum I have been using for about 4 months now and I am obsessed with it. Hyaluronic acid is brilliant at hydrating your skin through to the lower levels of your skin, which most hydrating products won’t do. I find this product really helps smooth and hydrate my skin to the point where I haven’t had any dryness on my face since using it, which is amazing. A few days before the wedding I will be using it morning and night, as I currently only use it in the morning.
Lush – Mint Julips Lip Scrub
Everyone wants lovely smooth lips and this is the best lip scrub I have tried, the best thing about it is that you can eat it off you lips. Lush have lip scrubs in about 5 different flavours I believe, this one is mint flavour and I love it. The lip scrub is made from chunky sugar, which makes it quite an intense lip scrub that leaves your lips feeling so smooth and it removes all your dry skin. This lip scrub makes your lip product look flawless when applied and stops it from cling onto the dry skin on your lips.
This is how I will be getting ready for my wedding this Summer. What products will you be using to get you skin perfect for the wedding day, I would love to know. Have a lovely rest of your day.
