Wedding season is upon us. It is a magical period where eternal memories are made. It is also a very stressful period, with brides eager to have the wedding of their dreams. As winter brides prepare for their weddings, we have gathered a bunch of tips to help you with your wedding beauty regimen.
Take a Breath
Managing your stress is perhaps the most important part of your journey to your wedding. Stress management will not just ensure that you enjoy the time leading up to your wedding, it will also help you with your beauty regimens.
You see, stress leads to skin issues such as adult acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema. It also leads to hives and other rashes and as well as flare-ups such as fever blisters. This is because stress makes your skin more sensitive and reactive. Stress is bad for your skin.
Stress also leads to poor sleep or even sleep deprivation. There’s truth in the old adage that you need to get your beauty sleep. Sleep is important for the creation of collagen, which keeps your skin nice and tight and clear. Poor sleep is bad for your skin.
Take up meditation, yoga, get eight-and-a-half hours of sleep and exercise to get “runner’s high”.
Book Beauty Appointments in Advance
Your wedding is like a military campaign and the best campaigns are planned well in advance and in detail. Avant Permanent Cosmetics believes that you need to book your beauty treatments well in advance, perhaps 3 months in advance, so that you do not face any problems. You should also have contingencies, where possible. You know what they say, “no plan survives first contact with the enemy”. Something will always go wrong, so you should plan for that as well.
Prepare Your Face
You should exfoliate your facial skin because this will give your makeup artist a smoother canvas to work with. You should also include hydrating serum to your beauty regimen. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, because they moisturize the skin, and keep it soft and tight.
Have a Consistent Beauty Routine
You need to have a consistent beauty routine in the months misleading to your wedding. There are many wonderful routines out there, but if you hop from beauty routine to beauty routine, you will not be able to enjoy the benefits of any of those beauty routines. You need to stick to one so that its benefits accrue over time. It’s better to have one bad beauty routine than to have many different ones. Using too many routines can actually lead to poor skin quality, because your skin is exposed to so many products.
Hydration is important. Drinking lots of water throughout the day will keep your skin moisturized, clear and tight. You don’t always have to drink water, you can drink teas, and other liquids. Reduce your intake of coffee, alcohol, fizzy drinks, and other such liquids, because they harm your skin. You want the most natural liquids. These are great for your skin and keep you looking young and bright.
