8 Skincare Tips to Follow Before Your Wedding Day
Jump on the skincare bandwagon early
Schedule an appointment with an aesthetician at least three to six months before your wedding to help design a month-to-month regimen to help you reach your skin goals leading up to the big day. If you have any skin concerns like acne, uneven pigmentation, brown spots, pores, fine lines or redness, now is the time to address them with your aesthetician.
Get some shut-eye
When you are asleep, your body is at its most metabolically active and is ridding itself of toxins that would otherwise wreak havoc on the skin. Try to get 8 hours of sleep each night to prevent dark circles and stress—a big acne aggravator.
Extractions at least two weeks before the big day
If you need extractions, give yourself at least two weeks before the wedding to allow time for your skin to settle down post-treatment.
Do not experiment
While it may be tempting to try new products that you have been reading about, do not add in any unknowns up to three weeks before your wedding. If there was any kind of negative reaction to your skin, it could take a few weeks to calm down. If you are considering trying a new treatment or product, experiment at least 6 months before to be on the safe side.

Try not to stress
We know—it seems like wedding planning and stress go hand-in-hand but one of the best pre-wedding skincare tips we can give you is to try your best to destress as much as possible. The fact of the matter is that stress can cause breakouts. Try downloading a meditation app that works for you or take some yoga classes to help calm your mind and balance your body.
Do not forget about your lips
Always wear SPF—every single day! And do not forget your lips! It is much easier to prevent your lips from getting burned and chapped than it is to repair them if they are already dry and cracked. Keep your lips hydrated and protected with a good quality lip balm with SPF 30 or higher.
Eat & Drink Your Way to Radiant Skin
What you put into your body can work wonders for your skin. Try eating clean to keep you and your skin happy too. And do not forget that your skin craves water. Always drink enough water daily to keep you hydrated and as a skincare bonus, try snacking on naturally hydrating foods like watermelon and cucumber for extra skin hydration. Some other skin smart foods include tomatoes, kale, grapefruit and blueberries. Remember to drink plenty of water before and on your wedding day to make sure you and your skin stay hydrated and glowing!
Just Roll with It
Get your facial massager on and purchase an ice roller to incorporate into your skincare routine. You can use it in the days leading up to your wedding and even the day of! Massaging, or rolling, your face improves blood and lymph circulation. This means that it boosts the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells to increase collagen production and lowers any fluid retention in your face.
If there is one day in your life that you want smooth, clear, glowing skin, it is your wedding day. Feel more confident walking down the aisle by using these 8 skincare tips sooner than later!
