How do you maintain a good skin condition, at least until your wedding day? The wedding is bound to be planned for months and months right? And life isn’t nice enough to GIVE us a perfect skin condition that long without something giving in—or breaking out, you know? Especially for us females who have to suffer hormonal imbalance every month because of a little red demon who we named “menstruation”. It’s kind of difficult to have smooth and unblemished skin all the time. We can certainly hope for it but rarely does it happen, you see.
Might seem frustratingly hopeless, but it really isn’t. Because there are tips and ways for you to keep the perfect skin condition you should have until the day of your wedding.
- Begin 6 months in advance.
- Build yourself a beauty regimen daily where you exfoliate, cleanse, do some toning and moisturise in the morning AND at night.
- Don’t forget to treat other parts of your body (particularly the neck, chest, back and so on). Get into body brushing.
- Moisturise not just your face, but also your hands and your feet. Also, get a mani/pedi test.
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself during this 6 months. Eat healthy food and try some vitamins.
- Practice some safe sun.
- Never prod or poke if a blemish appears.
- Keep stress levels low and stick to your routine. The wedding glow will appear if you keep yourself strict on the routine.
A little note here; all skin differs. When try to search for ways on how you start your routine, be careful and start testing things first. Since everyone’s skin will react differently, be cautious about the products you use because some of the expensive products you heard about might actually be damaging to yours. So experiment on it first and foremost.
Next, don’t go for a professional cleansing facial within the week prior to your wedding. It is likely that you would breakout. When you go and moisturise, never forget to do the same to the rest of your body as well. If you only focus on your face, it’s going to contrast so differently with your neck, chest and arms. Sure, the dress is going to cover some areas of your skin, but there are dress that don’t actually hide some parts of your skin, like the neck and chest themselves. Same goes for your hands and feet. Make sure you do the routine evenly, from your face down to the tips of your fingers and toes.
Now, the most important tip to take on maintaining the perfect skin condition for your wedding day is to keep yourself healthy and hydrated. Drink plenty of water. In fact, practice the old “8 glasses of water a day” saying. Forgo the usual greasy and sugary food. You need to maintain a good figure for the wedding anyway.
