HYDRATE: We can all use more water, especially to achieve that ‘glowing-bride’ look. Your skin looks it’s best when it is hydrated. Since our bodies are made up of approximately 57% water, it’s best to keep you topped up. When you think that you’ve drunk enough water, drink more.
SUN BLOCK: Especially for the summer bride, there is a lot of events in the days ahead of your wedding day that are outdoors. The sun dries you out, and can quickly give you a sunburn. So, try to remember to wear a hat, wear a non greasy sunscreen or just stay out of it. If you really want a tanned look, there are safer ways of getting your tan on.
SLEEP: Get enough sleep. When we are not fully rested, it will show in our eyes in the form of bags, dark circles and even redness. With the hustle and bustle of the weeks ahead of your big day, we can get caught up in our heads and not get restful sleeps. Try taking a warm bath or shower before bed to relax your body and mind.
EXFOLIATE: You’ll want to exfoliate your skin 5-7 before the wedding. It will help with your glow, and give your skin that extra care it needs. You can make your own. Use 1-1 parts of a raw corse salt/sugar to coconut oil. With a warm cloth, take your mixture and apply it in a circular motion to your face. After a few minutes, rinse with warm water and follow it with your favourite moisturizer.
BROW GAME: If you are looking to get your eyebrows trimmed before your big day, I suggest doing it a week to a few days before your big day. You don’t want to run the risk of any mis-hap. Make sure you know your ‘brow magician’ and have seen them at least once before the wedding trim.
