Your wedding is the most important day of your life and like all brides you want to feel more beautiful than ever before. To help, it’s important to focus on a skin care routine that will leave you with the glow only a bride has.

Finalizing a new skin care routine for your wedding takes time and includes trying many different products and services. Knowing that, it’s best to begin prepping your skin for the big day about six months before you say ‘I do.’ By giving yourself at least a few months for a new beauty regimen, it lets your skin get comfortable with new products to make sure they work for you. After all, your wedding pictures are forever. 

From experimenting with new makeup to getting facials, beginning your new skin-care routine just a few days before your wedding could leave you with problems that can be easily avoidable. Leaving new treatments to the last minute can result in blotchy, uneven and raised skin.

Whether you’re the bride, mother of the bride or mother of the groom, a wedding is your chance to say ‘maybe I should try something different with my routine.’ Our skin has a memory to it, and that may be why you notice your favorite lotion that you’ve used for years hasn’t been working the same anymore. A tip is to buy products that work well together and to use cleansers that adjust to your PH levels. It’s not a bad thing to switch up your products for your wedding.

When women seek out skin care advice before a wedding, one of the most common concerns they have is that their skin is not glowing. ‘Dull’ is one of the most popular words medical professionals in the skin care field hear when it comes to pre-wedding skin appointments. If you’re feeling the same way, try a microdermabrasion, which is a cosmetic procedure used to remove the top layer of sun-damaged and dead skin cells, leaving behind healthier and younger-looking skin.

A good rule of thumb to abide by when it comes to your wedding is what you put on the inside, shows on the outside. A skin care professional can recommend the right types of vitamins and eating habits to help you get the skin you want.

By investing in a proper beauty regimen before your wedding, your skin’s aging process can slow down. To further help your skin, remember to wash your face every night and use sunscreen. The earlier you start caring for your skin, the better off you are. 

Results take time but remember: we’re the hardest on ourselves. You may not see your new skin care routine results right away, but other people will notice, and you’re sure to notice on the day of your wedding.
