"Pre-wedding beauty treatment one: Facials
Every bride will benefit from having regular facial treatments, but if this isn’t an option due to time or money, then book in for a one-off facial before your big day. Facials are beneficial because they deeply cleanse the skin, boost circulation, are hydrating and help to bring skin to its natural balance. For maximum results, facials should be enjoyed every four to six weeks. It is advisable to begin having treatments six to 12 months before your wedding date. However, do not have your final facial too close to the big day – about 12 to 14 days before would be advisable, just to allow your complexion to settle.Pre-wedding beauty treatment two: Skincare
Make sure you have a good skincare regime, especially in the weeks prior to your wedding day. An effective skincare routine should make your skin look and feel healthy. Make sure you cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin twice a day (morning and evening) and ensure all make-up is completely removed from your skin at night, to prevent clogged pores. If you are not satisfied with your current skincare routine, visit your local beauty salon or dermatologist before your wedding day. If you are thinking of trying new skincare products, ensure you test them out weeks before your wedding in case they don’t suit your skin – no bride wants to be spotty or blotchy!Pre-wedding beauty treatment three: Exfoliation
Exfoliating your skin regularly is one of the best things you can do for your complexion as it encourages new cell regeneration, which results in brighter looking skin. Exfoliation should be done twice per week – any more and you risk stripping your skin of its natural oils, which could result in blotchy skin or a dull skin tone. Face and body scrubs, particularly those containing fruit extracts or mineral microbeads, will give your skin a boost as quickly as it takes you to have a shower, so it’s a perfect pre-wedding beauty treat.
Pre-wedding beauty treatment four: Body Polish
Dry body brushing is a simple and effective way to beautify the body, especially before your wedding day. It not only boosts circulation which will help skin to radiate and glow, but it also reduces cellulite and aids lymphatic drainage which are effective ways to eliminate toxins from the body. Dry body brushing can be done daily for five to 10 minutes, so it won’t take up too much time from your wedding planning schedule. Use firm, long strokes in the direction of your heart, starting from the soles of your feet and you’ll be left feeling as smooth as a baby.Pre-wedding beauty treatment five: Massage
There are so many reasons why massage is such a great beauty treatment. Massage helps to calm you and it eases stress, which is ideal in the buildup to your wedding day. A stress-free mind not only brings peace to your day, but also brings out the best in your skin. Massage also boosts circulation, which helps nourish the skin and gives you a healthy bridal glow. Massage treatments should usually be carried out on a monthly basis, but if your wedding has eaten your budget, then opt for just one massage about a week before the big day.
Pre-wedding beauty treatment six: Eyebrow shape
Perfect brows will emphasise the bride's features for her special day, so it’s worth booking in for a brow shape before your wedding. Ideally, brow shaping should be done on a regular basis (every four to six weeks), but if you have never had your brows professionally shaped, see a reputable brow specialist about three to six months before your wedding to ensure you achieve the ideal brow shape in time for your wedding. Your final brow shape or ‘brow tidy’ appointment should be done about five to seven days before your wedding to make sure any redness or irritation has cleared.
Pre-wedding beauty treatment seven: Hands and feet
Regular manicures and pedicures are a great way to get your hands and feet in tip-top condition. Hands in particular are a focal point of your wedding day and you will want them to look good in any close-up photos of your rings. Manicures and pedicures are deeply hydrating and can improve skin and nail condition, so consider booking an appointment in the weeks running up to the big day. Your final manicure or pedicure treatment should be done a day or two before your big day, but remember to apply cuticle oil daily to keep nails hydrated.
