Spring Clean Your Skin

You plan the details of your wedding attire down to the smallest detail. Your gown is tailored, you’ve run through your big day hairstyle (twice), your make-up is perfectly practiced, and your nails and toes manicured. But have you remembered your skincare routine? Establishing one prior to your wedding can help ensure your skin is as flawless as the rest of your big day. Here are some tips on how to get that face looking its best!

Rest

It’s no secret that planning a wedding is stressful. Stress can lead to restlessness, which inhibits sleep, and that can come through in our skin in the form of wrinkles and lack of luster. Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep to feel and look refreshed each day.

Take Off Makeup

Working and wedding planning at the same time can leave you tired (see point #1!), but be sure to remove your makeup at night. Not only can makeup clog pores, but giving your skin a cleaning followed up by moisturizing night products will keep your face supple.

Eat Well

What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on it! Eating cleaner and more consciously can give your body the building blocks it needs to keep skin glowing and youthful.

Keep it Fresh

While most brides look for something old to have with them on their wedding day, you do not want old skin. Flawless skin is just below the surface. Exfoliate your skin to brighten and reduce fine lines. As a precaution, be sure to test out your exfoliant in the months and weeks prior to your wedding day.

Know Yourself

One important thing to remember is that skin is not one size fits all. Some people have oily skin, some combination, some dry, and so on. Just as skin is not the same for everyone, neither are skincare products. Make sure you are using the products that are appropriate for you.

Be Consistent

Like any new routine you start, consistency is key. Sticking to a skincare routine will yield the results you are looking for and allows your skin to receive the full benefits of the skincare products. It’s an important area to consider as you spring clean your skin!

Update Products

Be sure to keep track of when your products expire. This includes both makeup and skincare! Many of us are guilty of keeping beauty supplies for years, and tossing some may be in order as your spring clean your home – while you are at it inventory your stash of products. Using expired products can cause breakouts, and the lotions and makeup may not work as it was originally intended. It’s also a fabulous time to clean your brushes to give them a fresh start, too!

Whatever skincare routine you establish, ensure it is one you can stick to. Taking care of yourself leading up to your big day will surely pay-off. Have fun as you spring clean your skin!

  • Jess - I agree one of the best things I did two months before my wedding was stop wearing makeup. I have mostly kept up with that ritual now but I occasionally still wear it.

  • Ann F. Snook-Moreau - One tip I used was to not drink caffeine or alcohol for a week before the wedding. It ensured my skin wasn’t dried out, which could lead to flakiness, pimples, or both!

  • Liz Bayardelle - I never think of skin as something that is important but every time I look at a picture it’s so noticeable! This is really great advice.

  • Karla - I love these tips! This reminded me that I have to dispose of some products that I don’t really need.

  • Dalene Ekirapa - Always eat well…getting beautiful skin starts right from within. Right now, I’m trying to detoxify as much and eat more healthy veggies.
