Say "I Do" to Glowing Skin: Bridal Season Beauty Tips for a Picture -Perfect Wedding Day!


Wedding season is here and with this it comes the excitement and anticipation of getting ready for the Big Day! Whether you're the Bride, the Maid of Honor, or the Bridal Party, looking your best is always a top priority. Here are some tips on how to prep your skin for the wedding festivities, from body and facial waxing to facials, spray tanning, and more.


Body and Facial Waxing


If you're planning on wearing a sleeveless dress or showing a little leg, getting a wax is a great way to ensure you're smooth and hair-free for the Big Day! Go 7-10 days prior to the wedding, visit your Esthetician for services for waxing, services that include legs, underarms, bikini or Brazilian wax.


If you are concerned about pain, know that there will be some discomfort but nothing that should extremely painful or severe discomfort. The best way to prep is to drink plenty of water. Keeping skin hydrated provides greater results of removing hair. It also helps keep the skin's skin barrier better prepped and helping to avoid skin from lifting. Second, DO NOT TAKE AN Ibuprofen or drink caffeinated drinks. During waxing, there may be pinpoint bleeding which means the hair follicle has been completed removed from the tip which can cause a little bleeding. When taking an Ibuprofen or drinking caffeinated drinks it cause for blood to be thinner and have a hard time controlling the stop of bleeding. If feeling some discomfort after, take an ibuprofen after not before.


FYI, a well experienced and trained Esthetician knowledgeable in waxing with Hard and Soft Wax, sanitation, holding skin taut and minimizing discomfort is the type of Esthetician to look for within your area.



For your face, consider getting a brow wax and lip wax to remove any unwanted hair. This will give you a clean and polished look for all the wedding festivities.


FYI, if you are prone to breaking out from waxing, possibly go a week prior and ask the Esthetician for adding the additional service of High Frequency Therapy. High Frequency can help ease inflammation, reduce breakouts and is a great germicidal to help prevent any bacterial infection.




If you are using any type of retinoids or retinols stop using two weeks prior before facial wax, if receiving chemical peels wait 4 weeks, the skin is thinner and can easier lift and leave a mark. We certainly do not want that on your wedding day. Make sure to not use any active ingredients that can cause irritation/contraindications during your wax appointment.


Facials


Facials are a great way to get your skin glowing, healthy, and ready for the wedding day and honeymoon. Begin a skincare routine that includes facials 6 months in advance if possible and at least 1 month prior to the wedding. Facials are usually scheduled every 3 weeks and for some bi-weekly depending on what type of results we are trying to achieve and maintain.




A facial that includes hydrating, deep cleansing of pores and removal of dead skin cells will provide you with amazing youthful results less wrinkles, a healthy glow, plump skin and an overall excellent skin health. The healthier the skin is, the skin will look and your Bridal Makeup will look even more fantastic than you could imagine.




Spray Tanning


If you want a little extra color or an evened-out skin tone that looks flawless, consider spray tanning. Its made for all not just for those of fair complexations. This spray tan can give you a sun-kissed glow or a sun-goddess glow whichever you prefer without the harmful effects of the sun.

Make sure to schedule your spray tan a few days before the wedding to allow for the color to settle and any touch-ups to be made.




FYI, make sure you have exfoliated and have kept your skin well hydrated and moisturized. The better the skin is balanced in hydration and moisture the greater the spray tan adheres and last longer.
