Every bride wants clear, glowing skin on her wedding day. In this post we’ve put together our top tips on how to make sure your skin is in the best condition on the day.
Match your routine to your skin needs
Different people need different skin care routines: each person will have their own unique concerns, which will need addressing. It is important to tailor your skincare routine to your unique issues: if your skin is dry, invest in a rich moisturiser, and a hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture, which is especially important when your skin has aged. As Paula’s Choice UK, notes:
“Hyaluronic acid is stunningly important with regard to skin ageing because one of the qualities of youthful skin is its ability to hold water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. We can’t stress enough how important this is because as we age, our skin doesn’t maintain moisture as well as it once did, resulting in a loss of firmness, pliancy, and suppleness.
Hyaluronic acid can help enhance moisture content beyond compare and at the same time revitalize skin’s outer layer to look and feel softer, smoother, and especially appear plumper”.
If your skin is oily, don’t go down the route of attempting to dry it out, as this can lead to your skin producing more oil, in order to overcompensate. In addition, avoid emollient ingredients and thick creams, which will likely clog your pores and make it more oily. The key to caring for oily skin is to use a chemical or physical exfoliant; as the skin may be prone to clogged pores, so it’s essential to regularly exfoliate in order to achieve smooth, clear skin.
In addition, radiant skin can easily be achieved for more mature skin, with a few basic ingredients. As we mentioned above, hyaluronic acid is a great product to use to bring back moisture and to achieve a more youthful look. Vitamin C is also a brilliant ingredient to incorporate into your routine, for glowing, vibrant skin. In addition, vitamin A (also known as retinol) is a brilliant anti-aging ingredient: extensive research has shown that retinol is brilliant for reducing the look of fine lines, improving skin tone and clarity, and is excellent at helping the skin to retain moisture.
Nourish your body for better skin
Clear, glowing skin really depends on making sure your diet is balanced and healthy. The basics: drinking enough water, eating enough fresh fruit and vegetables, and avoiding processed food can all go a long way in helping your skin to appear clear and glowing. In addition, exercise also helps to boost the health and glow of your skin.
Give your skin some extra TLC
Give your skin an extra boost, to ensure that its glowing beautifully on your wedding day. Set up a great skincare routine: ensuring that you exfoliate, to keep skin clear and smooth, and that you moisturise to keep skin looking soft and supple. In addition, apply a serum loaded with great ingredients, to help give your skin a healthy appearance. To make your skin look extra beautiful in your wedding photos, arrange a facial a couple of weeks before the day.
Gorgeous skin on your wedding day is easily achievable, with a simple skincare routine, a healthy diet and exercise regime.
