Most beauty experts recommend starting a disciplined approach to flawless skin about five or six months before your wedding day. So, while you are still working on invitations and picking out bridesmaid dresses, start working on your skin. Making small investments of time now will provide a big pay out on wedding day.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and can be thought of like a big filter. Many experts have stated that the skin is the mirror to one’s internal health (and eating habits). Even if you have a relatively nice complexion you can still benefit from six months of stress-relief, good nutrition, extra water-drinking and a boost in oral supplements and antioxidants.
The basics – ensure you are on a good skin cleansing program that is right for your skin. A good system doesn’t have to be expensive, but should include a foaming cleanser in the morning and a gentle make-up remover type cleanser at night; a daily moisturizer with spf in the morning and hydrating in the evening. An absolute must is the use of an exfoliant 2 times per week.
This is also a great time to consult a skincare professional. Tell them your wedding date, and your skin-care goals. They may recommend treatments such as chemical peels or regular facials that will help you have picture-perfect skin.
Suggested daily supplements? 1000 mg of chewable vitamin-C each day will help reduce any redness in your skin including acne scarring. 100% pomegranate juice is rich in antioxidants and will give your skin and immune system a boost.
In short, our best advice is to drink plenty of water (half of your body weight in ounces – this means, if you weigh 130 pounds – you’ll need at least 65 ounces of water each day), take your supplements and no matter what you do – never every try anything for the first time ever within one month of your wedding.
