5 Simple Steps To Get Your Skin Ready For Your Wedding Day

We all know how important it is to choose the right makeup artist and hair stylist for your big day. A common mistake that brides make is to neglect their skin health ahead of their big day.

Having a healthy, radiant complexion is absolutely essential. The days of heavy bridal makeup are over, and have given way to healthy, radiant skin that beams in the light. Light makeup that enhances your features, and a clean & plump skin as a canvas is timeless and will never go out of style. Here are 5 simple steps to follow to achieve just that:


1. Start your skin care journey at least 6 months before your wedding.

Change doesn't happen overnight, especially when it comes to skin care. It’s important to start investing in good skin care habits 12 to 6 months prior to your big day, depending on the changes you want to see on your skin. A combination of clinical grade, efficacious skin care products and a series of minimally invasive facial treatments (like chemical peels, microneedling and laser skin rejuvenation) is the gold standard in achieving incredibles results on your skin. Creating these good habits goes beyond just prepping for your wedding day; it lays the foundation on creating a truly comprehensive skin care routine and seeing incredible long-term results in the health of your skin. Skin health is essential.


2. Find a skincare routine that suits your skin type and stick to it.

As mentioned before, using the right skin care products at home is equally as important as getting regular facial treatments done. Consistently using high quality, well-formulated products at home is truly the key to unlocking glowy, healthy skin. Try incorporating ingredients like Vitamin C for radiance and antioxidant protection , AHA’s & BHA’s for exfoliation and hydration, Retinol for a more plump and smooth skin, and of course, Broad Spectrum SPF for essentia UV protection. If you haven’t been seeing real results with your current skin care regimen or you’re just unsure of where to start then feel free to book a consultation with one of our Skin Experts to get you on track to healthy skin!

3. Get any injectables like Botox/ Fillers at least 1 month before your big day.

All injectables, depending on the formulation, can take up to 4 weeks to fully “settle” on the skin. More specifically, botulinum toxin injections (Botox or Dysport) can take up to 10-14 days to set on the muscle and reach optimal results. Dermal fillers can take up to 4 weeks to set, depending on area, the product and your lifestyle. Allowing your skin to fully adjust to the injectables before your big day will ensure incredible, glowy results the day of. 

4. Get a hydrating facial days before your wedding.

Make sure to book a hydrating, depuffing and relaxing facial 1 or 2 days prior to your wedding. As the big day approaches, stress and nerves might be taking a toll on your skin. A deeply hydrating and relaxing facial will not only help you glow but it will also have a great impact on your confidence and inner balance. Try to avoid any deeply ablative treatments the month prior, especially a treatment that you’ve never tried before and you’re uncertain of how the downtime might affect you. Stick to a relaxing, hydrating and depuffing facial.

5. Lastly and most importantly - follow your esthetician’s advice.

An experienced and educated skin expert will assess your skin, listen to your concerns, suggest a treatment plan and help you achieve your skin care goals. Following their advice and staying consistent to your skincare appointments and daily skin care regimen will have the most incredible and lasting impact on your skin.
