How can I get my skin flawless?
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Really, the best thing you can do for your skin is to hydrate it. If there is anything you add to your beauty routine leading up to wedding day, add in a moisturizer. Of course, that’s not the only thing you can do. Some simple ways to help your skin start with what you ingest. Cutting back on alcohol and upping your water game can help your skin. Then there are the not so simpler things like visiting a dermatologist or esthetician for assistance or regular facials. Another pro source? Your wedding day beauty artist can provide you with a plan to help you achieve flawless skin.
When should I treat my hair?
If you are a cut and color on the reg kind of girl, just stick to your routine and make sure you schedule your upcoming appointments around wedding day. You don’t want an appointment the day before your wedding. Give your hair some time to settle in.
If you are looking to try something new for wedding day, do just that and try it first. Schedule your appointment months before wedding day so you can make sure you like it. Then, schedule an appointment at least a week out from wedding day to have it redone. And if you are adding a cut into the mix, make sure you talk it over with your hair stylist for wedding day first, so you don’t cut it too short for the hairstyle you trialed.
What other beauty services should I consider before wedding day?
The most common additional beauty service brides book leading up to wedding day are a manicure and pedicure. This one is easy because you can get it done the day or two before your wedding. If you are trying a new salon or want to test a color first, go a week or two before and then schedule your wedding appointment after that.
Some other enhancements brides consider are tanning, laser hair removal and teeth whitening. With the latter two, make sure you consult a professional and decide when the best time to start since they often take multiple appointments to finish the service. With tanning, same rule applies here as hair – test run it first. Try a spray tan a couple months before wedding day to make sure you like the shade and that it sits well. Then discuss with your consultant when the best time is to get your final spray tan before wedding day so it will settle and not rub off on your dress!
