Brides, we’re talking about your skin regimen.
A looming wedding is the perfect excuse to indulge in a little self-care.
If there is ever a time to shake up your beauty regime, it’s for the preparation of your wedding day! A wedding beauty regimen is a great way to practice some self-care, giving you the opportunity to de-stress ahead of your nuptials. And of course, each step will aid you in perfecting your wedding-day look, ensuring your skin brings its A-Game for the big day.
We’re sharing our top tips for perfect bridal skin.
- Invest in Your Skincare
It’s time to consider the products you are applying. We recommend speaking to your Advanced Skin Specialist (ahem, us!) to determine an appropriate product plan that you can use at home. Everyone is unique and the same goes for our skin. There is not a one size fits all approach to selecting skincare so in the lead up to your Wedding Day, a customised plan to treat concerns or maintain your glowing complexion is essential.
Speak with your team at Face Fit. After careful analysis, we will prescribe a series of products such as Cleansers, Exfoliators, Serums and Moistourisers that suit you, your skin concerns and will leave you feeling amazing come the big day.
Note: This should be down 6-12 months out. We do not recommend trying a brand-new product days or weeks out.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Strap a bottle of water to you at all times. In the lead up to your wedding, drinking plenty of water is paramount to the health of your skin. When we drink water, we hydrate our bodies and in turn, our skin. Drinking water also aids in flushing out toxins which is a common cause in skin impurities and breakouts.
Bonus tip; drinking water can also aid in weight management. Who doesn’t love a multitasker?
- Use An SPF
Protect your skin from harmful UV Rays and use an SPF every day, especially as you approach your special day. Sun exposure causes dark spots, pigmentation, sun damage and aids in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and nobody wants that on their wedding day.
Do not neglect your décolletage. If you’re wearing an intricate dress, chances are the detail will draw attention to your chest. Protect your décolletage, especially when driving and out and about.
- Have Regular Facials and Treatments
Pre-Wedding prep is the perfect opportunity to indulge in regular facials and treatments. Once a luxury, now an essential, so make the most of it. Speak to your Advanced Skin Specialist about how to get the best result for your skin. From Medi-Facials to Peels, Needling and PRP, we have a long list of treatments available to combat individual concerns.
If you’re one of the lucky ones, a regular facial is all that you may need to maintain the integrity of your already beautiful skin but for those whom experience breakouts, dry skin or have scarring Peels and Needling will be the sure-fire way to bring your skin back to its former glory.
- Anti Wrinkle Treatments
Walk down the aisle as your most youthful and freshest self yet. If you are concerned about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your big day, you should consider a quick and non-invasive treatment such as Anti-Wrinkle. Anti-Wrinkle Gold Coast, for those who have yet to experience the magic, is a quick procedure that works to relax the muscles in specific areas of the face so that your expressions appear softer and fine lines will cease to exist.
Each client is unique and this includes the longevity of your Anti-Wrinkle results. As a rule of thumb, we suggest visiting your Cosmetic Nurse between 3-4 weeks out from the big day to ensure there is no swelling or bruising.
Your makeup is the biggest part of the morning-of. We all want our makeup to be flawless ahead of your grand entrance and to help achieve a divine finish and overall look, we suggest our Dermablading Treatment. Dermablading, in the hands of our skilled Skin Specialists is the art of carefully removing any and all “peach fuzz” and excess hair from the surface of the skin. It also works to remove excess dirt and dry skin leaving you completely smooth and glowing. With zero peach fuzz, makeup application is a breeze and the finish is immaculate.
So, ladies (and gents), if the question was popped and the plans are in motions, consider your skin. Most treatments and regimens do not work over night so allowing yourself enough time to get the most from your skincare plan is highly recommended. Speak with the team at Face Fit so that we can arrange a plan that will ensure you are the most beautiful bride on your very special day.
