8 Beauty Tips to Change Your Life

The wedding season is here and if you are a bride-to-be, or going to attend a wedding of a close one, you must be in action mode with countless shopping sprees and hunting for the trousseau. But what have you planned for your most important accessory, your skin, other than a facial? Most women do not have a clue on how to prep their skin for the big day. Read these eight tips and you will be sorted!

1 Skip the facial/laser

Yep, you read it right! Skip any facial or laser plans close to your wedding. Facials are risky and in many cases, unnecessary. You might end up harming your skin; you don’t want a beetroot red face or spots and acne, would you?

Facials are basically meant to bring a glow, along with cleaning out your skin. But that can easily be achieved by home products too. Just use mild chemical exfoliation instead of painful blackhead removing! If you must do a facial, it should be done at least a month before the wedding.

As for lasers, they might make you shine temporarily, but if you follow it up closely with a honeymoon at the beach you will burn and damage yourself beyond care!

2 Start your skin care early and don’t change anything a month before your wedding

If you are not applying a sunblock daily, that should change now. Use a high quality physical sunscreen to apply daily on your face, to protect you from all those shopping sprees in the sun. Our top pick is Colore science Sunforgettable mineral powder SPF 50.

Also a few months before the wedding, attack your spots and uneven pigmentation. Do not pick on spots or pimples close to your big day. If you see a zit, simply treat it with Benzoyl Peroxide 5% cream available at your local pharmacy. Any new makeup for your trousseau as well as foundations etc should be tested, along with your daily skin care routine. No experiments please.
