Every girl dreams of what she’ll look like on her wedding day. We imagine ourselves with an ear to ear smile and beautiful, flawless, glowing skin, much like the models we see in bridal magazines. The question is how do we get that wedding glow and what’s their secret?
No Worries, I got you covered!!!!! Here is my top tips to achieve the best skin for your wedding day!
We’d all love to wake up with blemish-free, even-toned, smooth skin; however, like most things, nothing comes that easy. Start your skincare regime early- about 3- 6 months early!
The skin’s natural turn-over cycle is about 28 days, so that's possibly a month before you see real results. Give yourself time to start a skincare routine.
Recommendations: Starting early with moisturizing retinol, such as Luna Sleeping Night by Sunday Riley, will decrease fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen and accelerate your skin’s natural cell turnover.

Create a Regimen
Visit your local dermatologist, esthetician, or your wedding makeup artist about giving you advice on a proper skincare routine. By having a professional’s opinion, you will be able to have insight and guidance on your skin type, skin needs, and recommended products.
Recommendation: Begin your daily routine with a product like Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser. This everyday, gentle cleanser will remove your makeup and leave your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated!

Exfoliation is Key
A top question that people are always asking is “Why do I need to use an exfoliator if I wash my face every day?”
Naturally, our skin produces dead skin cells. Those dead skin cells can block our products from fully absorbing and hang on our skin for sometimes up to 40 days. Exfoliating will allow your products to penetrate deeper while giving you brighter, smoother and hydrated skin.
Recommendation: A product like Rice Enzyme Powder by TATCHA is a very gentle physical exfoliant. This water-activated exfoliant turns powder into a creamy foam that will remove any dead skin cells without stripping the skin of its natural nutrients.

As always, be mindful of the products and steps you are taking to have the skin that you desire. Overactive or extremely aggressive products or procedures may result in scarring, bruising and/or sensitivity. So, take it slow.
However, if you see any signs of discomfort or sensitivity, don’t hesitate to try something else and always speak to a professional first.
Recommendations: Using safe at-home skincare tools can help to elevate your skincare experience in the comfort of your own home. NuFACE Trinity helps to improve facial contour, skin tone, and texture while using micro-current technology.
