Planning and preparing for a wedding is already one of the most stressful undertakings in a person’s life. Between finding the perfect dress, ordering food, flowers, and a cake, booking venues and bands, and making sure that your grandma and your great-aunt Suzie are seated very far away from each other, things can get a little hectic.
Stress can take a huge toll on skin, especially on your face. Stress and anxiety often lead to acne and blemish breakouts, stress lines, wrinkles, and other unappealing issues. It’s crucial to take care of your face and prioritize skincare in the weeks leading up to the big day to ensure that you’re a blemish-free, blushing bride.
While it may be easy to get caught up in the trials and tribulations of wedding planning, taking care of your face should be factored in as an essential part of the preparations. Do some personal research or consult a beauty expert to find the best morning and nighttime skincare routines for your skin type.
Now is the time to make an appointment for the botox, chemical peel, or microdermabrasion treatment you’ve been considering. These treatments will give you that glowing effect you desire but may require a few days of downtime afterward in case of an adverse reaction, so it’s best to avoid them in the week or two leading to the big wedding day.
Additionally, schedule an appointment for trial makeup a few weeks before the big day. Trial makeup allows you to tweak anything you may not like about the “look,” and gives your face time to see how it reacts to the products used. Don’t forget to bring references and colors for the makeup artist, too.
Finally, test out that self-tanner or spray tan with some time to spare in case of any mishaps. Fake tans can stick out like a sore thumb and ruin what would be beautiful wedding photos, so it’s best to give these products a trial run.
Taking care of your face in preparation for your wedding is crucial since stress can lead to breakouts, wrinkles, and other unwelcome wedding day skin issues.
Now, the big day is finally here. Just like Murphy’s Law states: anything that can go wrong will go wrong. To minimize the potential for any unnecessary last-minute mishaps, we’ve compiled a list of the essential face and skin Do’s and Don’ts for the day you say, “I do!”
Many little girls spend years of their lives imagining their dream wedding day. However, none of these dreams involve pesky big-day blemishes or unpleasant spray tanning experiences. Between all the stress and confusion of planning your wedding, remember the importance of face and skin maintenance. Leave the skincare preparation, and day-of make up to professionals so you can enjoy a day that is all about your love.
