So it’s a week before your wedding and you want to make sure you’re feeling and looking great before your big day. Here are some skincare secrets we think you should follow religiously one week before your wedding if you want to look and feel good for your big day. If you’ve not been doing any of the following steps previously and you want glowing skin, start now and amazing results will show within a week!
If you haven’t been drinking enough water recently, you’ll want to make sure you really make this final week count. Drink 2-3 litres a day to flush out those toxins and help make sure your skin is glowing in a week’s time.
Make sure your eating properly and sensibly. Get in as many veggies as you can so you look and feel good. Avoid having too much sugar as this can cause breakouts. Make sure your getting in sources of healthy fats such as nuts, seeds and olive oil. Eat healthy sources of protein such as fish and chicken or beans and pulses if your vegetarian. Have a variety of fresh fruit too.
Have a tasty green juice every morning. This will help get rid of toxins and make you feel energised, and again it will make your skin glow! Include more veggies than fruits such as spinach, celery, cucumber, carrots and an apple for some sweetness.
Keep following your usual skincare regime and exfoliate as usual to remove any dead skin cells so makeup application on your wedding day is flawless! Don’t exfoliate too aggressively as you don’t want to irritate the skin. Don’t use any new products this close to the wedding just in case any reactions or irritations occur. Also use a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips as this will help with having perfect lipstick all day, especially if you’re wearing a matte lippy!
If you’ve been regularly getting facials done during months leading to your wedding, get one done a week before your wedding (only if your skin is usually fine after a facial) otherwise get it done 2-3 weeks before if you usually have a few breakouts after facials.
Make sure you’re getting enough sleep every night as this is when your body and skin can recover. A good night’s sleep could help puffy eyes go down and help the process of having flawless skin on the day.
Make sure you’re relaxed and not running around completing last minute errands. Delegate jobs to others and try your best to relax. Being stressed can cause some people to have spots or breakouts.
