Wedding season is approaching and as a bride-to-be, you’ve already picked your dream dress, a stunning venue and the perfect shade of posies. With six months to spare, now is the best time to prepare your skin for the big day. If you aren’t sure where to begin, here are our tips for how to get flawless skin for your wedding.
1. Plump & Hydrate
Dermatologist Dr. Ryan Turner tells Bridal Guide that he advises brides to start using a product that contains vitamins C and E six weeks before the wedding, saying these ingredients “help repair damage, working together to boost collagen and elastin production and leaving your skin with visibly improved firmness and elasticity”. The go-to bridal magazine recommends our Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil, a luxurious facial oil that fights the signs of aging, smooths the appearance of wrinkles and hydrates deeply for firm, youthful looking skin.
2. Brighten Up
Even out your skin tone with the help of our Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster-Serum. Before her wedding day, Lauryn from popular lifestyle blog The Skinny Confidential struggled with dark skin above her lip. She touts the effectiveness of this extra strength brightening serum, saying that using it once a day worked wonders for her “mustache syndrome” and proclaiming it her “favorite skin brightener on the planet.”
3. Smooth Things Over
The key to flawless bridal beauty is smooth skin. Celebrity facialist and Eminence Organics devotee Joanna Vargas recommends applying our Strawberry Rhubarb Masque before your big day to exfoliate, moisturize and brighten in one step. BRIDES echoes her wedding tips, saying a silky canvas is “the number-one reason why celebs look like they’re barely wearing foundation.”
If you struggle with problem skin, don’t let your fear of an overnight eruption disturb your beauty sleep. Joanna Vargas shares her wedding tips with The Knot, saying a treatment like our Clear Skin Willow Bark Booster-Serum that “calms inflammation and heals the skin quickly” is the perfect product pick to help you rest easy. Infused with willow bark and tea tree oil, this concentrated serum helps to improve problem areas for a noticeably smoother complexion.
5. Schedule Regular Facials
When it comes to wedding preparation, Bridal Guide recommends scheduling facials with your esthetician six months, three months and one month prior to your big day. If you’re planning to get a facial right before your wedding, opt for a gentle, hydrating facial to plump your skin and prep your glow without aggravating potential problem areas.
