Wear Your Skin Like Your Wedding Dress

In short, pamper your skin and invest in skincare. A gorgeous wedding dress alone does not make much of an impact unless worn on equally gorgeous skin, and this is what beauty experts from would like to emphasize. Your skin is the largest and most visible organ of your body, and you need to turn it into one of your best beauty assets. As early as months before your wedding day, take the time to enhance your skincare regimen by focusing more on making your skin look younger and blemish-free. Use gentle cleansing and exfoliating products and select products that moisturize, rejuvenate, and nourish the skin. 

Don’t limit your skincare regimen to topical applications. Your lifestyle can also affect how your skin works. Maintain regular exercise to keep a healthy blood circulation and sufficient oxygen supply for your skin cells. Eat fruits and vegetables to give your skin the nutrients it needs to glow. Get enough sleep to promote skin cell regeneration. Lastly do not forget to drink enough water to keep your body and skin hydrated. Glamming up your skin may sound like a lot of work, but you’ll thank yourself after the wedding for pushing through with it.

Make Your Smile Shine

This momentous event will give you plenty of smiles. Don’t just practice your best smile for your wedding day. You also need to work on how to make your teeth look glowing white and temporarily or permanently hide their imperfections. Consult your dentist on the most effective whitening and/or cosmetic treatment for your teeth and if you want the changes to be temporary or permanent. Having that perfect smile can boost your confidence on your wedding day and make you shine in your wedding photos.

Work on Your Hairstyle

Your hair is another asset you need to highlight during your wedding day. The lifestyle preparations we mentioned earlier don’t just work for the skin, but also your hair. You need to keep your hair healthy as you will be trying more than one hairstyle to find the one that perfectly matches your wedding dress, the ceremony decorations, and your personality. Make advanced preparations for your hair by coordinating with your hairstylist on the essential details that can help you finalize the hairstyle you will wear during the wedding. Preparing beforehand will also let you know if a headpiece is necessary or not and give you time to choose and purchase one if it’s needed.

Have Several Test Runs for Your Makeup

One of the most common mistakes couples make at their wedding is having the makeup application done during the wedding day. Unless the makeup artist is familiar with your facial features or someone who has applied your makeup before, then you go to this arrangement. Even so, brides tend to change their minds about how they look and this can ruin the mood of your wedding. To avoid getting negative vibes during the wedding, work with your makeup artist days before the wedding and try out the different looks you have in mind. If possible, do the test runs with the wedding dress on to give the best impression and most satisfying results. Take a picture of the makeup style you are most satisfied with to have it recreated during the wedding day and you are less likely to change your mind and feel uneasy about your makeup.

Glam Up Your Nails

You should also pay attention to your nails as they can also be the highlight of attention during the wedding. It’s not just the groom who will be looking at them, but also friends, relatives, and acquaintances who will want to get a glimpse of your wedding ring and your nails in the process. Have your nails professionally manicured, preferably a few hours before your wedding, to give the polish enough time to become dry and glossy. Work with your manicurist if you prefer long or trimmed nails and which colors accentuate the beauty of your hands and match your wedding dress.
