Are you getting married? Congratulations! I’m sure you are excited about your day and, although a wedding requires a lot of organization, you are managing to relax and enjoy the process too. Your dress, choosing the date and the venue, invitations, favors for your guests, and… Your beauty regime! Take notes.
The best beauty tip is to have a healthy diet and exercise at least twice a week; not with the purpose of losing weight, although it will help if you want to shed a couple of pounds, but because eating healthy and exercising regularly have very positive effects on our complexion. This will also enhance the results of your beauty treatments and, above all, your mood.
This beauty step for your wedding day should start between 6 and 9 months prior to your wedding. It’s the perfect time to start your exercise routine, if you don’t have one yet, and laser hair removal, if that’s the method you’re interested in.
If you are considering certain beauty treatments such as ultrasonic cavitation, facial rejuvenation treatments or a program to target cellulite, you should start these 3 to 6 months before your wedding.
This way you will be able to complete the whole process, which will provide very positive results if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise that could even reduce the number of sessions you may need.
Your big day is getting nearer, so whether you have decided to undergo a beauty treatment or not, about 3 or 4 months before your wedding is the time to start treating your face with a flash program that will make your skin look absolutely radiant and soft in just 4 or 5 sessions.
Check your options at your local beauty salon. Most of these treatments include deep skin exfoliation to eliminate any sort of impurities, followed by cleansing and moisturizing. Above all, it is important that you follow a daily cleansing and skincare regime, so the results will last longer.
It would also be best to get a facial about 15 days before your wedding to eliminate any impurities you could have on your skin or that have accumulated since you had your flash treatment to get ready for your big day. You can also get a gentle scrub on your neck and back, so if you are wearing a dress with a deep neckline or open back you’ll will look perfectly radiant.
The countdown has started and your wedding is less than 3 months away. You already have your dress picked out and now it is time to start trying out hairstyles and makeup. I advise you to leave these tasks to the experts. This will help you calm your nerves and will save you from any unnecessary surprises, since you will have decided everything beforehand.
It would also be advisable to visit your dentist to get a dental cleaning so your smile will look white and pristine on your special day. A few days before the wedding is the perfect time for a complete manicure and pedicure, I recommend getting a permanent nail polish to make sure your nails still look perfect long after your wedding is over. If you can, I advise getting a massage for two, this will help you release all of the accumulated stress and allow you to enjoy some relaxation time together just a few days before you say, “I do.”
Your wedding is just one day away, and it’s time to relax. Prepare a cosmetics bag beforehand with all of your makeup essentials for any retouches you may need on your wedding day. Take a warm shower or a bath, enjoy a cup of herbal tea and get an early night so you can rest and get as much sleep as possible before the big day. Everything is ready, just relax and enjoy.
