August is officially the most popular month for weddings in the UK, which means that thousands of brides up and down the country are only a matter of weeks away from their big day. Every bride on the planet wants to look their best as they say their vows and pose for photos which they’ll treasure for decades to come, so we thought we’d put together some skincare tips which will come in handy in the run up to the most important day of your life.
Keep it Clean
There’s a good chance that your skin will have taken a bit of a battering, with make-up trials and the like, so a proper cleansing system is vital for keeping your pores clear and your face blemish-free. Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Cleanser is the perfect product as it can be used on both face and eyes and gently cleanses without stripping the skin of its own essential barriers.
Say No to Eye Bags
Although you’ve probably had MANY a sleepless night in the run up to the wedding (and we don’t just mean the Hen Weekend!), eye-bags are a big no-no for wedding photos. We highly recommend Decleor 2-In-1 Dark Circle and Eye Wrinkle Eraser; as well as reversing any signs of aging that you may have suffered whilst dealing with tricky caterers or tyrannical wedding planners, this product will banish dark circles, making sure you look bright eyed and ready for anything.
Banish Dry Elbows
Your face isn’t the only place which needs attention, and depending on the cut of your dress, you’ll want to make sure that the rest of your skin is in tip-top condition too. In the weeks ahead of the wedding, use Decleor’s Exfoliating Body Cream to get rid of dull dry skin and ensure that every inch of you has that bridal glow.
Don’t Get Tango’d!
Speaking of bridal glow, there’s always the temptation to go for heavy spray tans to give you a healthy hue, but we think that Decleor’s Self Tanning Milk gives a far more natural glow. Use daily ahead of the wedding (although not at the same time as the exfoliator as one will cancel out the other!) and you’ll look naturally tanned and gorgeous.
The last thing you want when you kiss your Husband or Wife for the very first time is for your dry, chapped lips to feel rough and unappealing. We know how make-up and air conditioning can play havoc with your lips at this time of year, so be sure to use plenty of Decleor Nourishing Lip Balm to ensure your lips are soft and super kissable.
