You’ll want to look your very best on your wedding day, and your skin will play a big role in that. However, do you really need to start thinking about wedding day skin a whole six months before your big day?
Ideally, yes, because deep changes in the skin, meaning the changes that are capable of giving you the skin of your dreams versus a temporary fix, don’t happen overnight. That said, if you only have a few weeks, or even days, before your wedding, this checklist can still help you. However, for everyone else, giving your skin six months of extra attention will bring you that ravishing bridal glow that you see on all of your favourite Pinterest boards.
6 Months Before the Big Day
It may seem like you still have plenty of time before your wedding, but, trust us, the next six months will fly by. Now is the perfect time to take control of your skin and make a start on dealing with any major skin concerns.
Identify Your Main Skin Concerns
Close your eyes and imagine your ideal wedding day. What does your skin look like?
Now, make a list of everything that’s standing in your way of achieving that skin. Is it acne? Dark spots? Wrinkles? All of that and more? Don’t worry if your list looks ominous – once you have identified each individual issue, you’ll be able to make a plan to deal with them.
There are many treatment options out there, some of which we’ll be talking you through. However, if any of your skin concerns are severe, now is the time to take that list you’ve made to a reputable dermatologist.
Consider a Chemical Peel
Don’t let the name put you off – chemical peels are basically a form of exfoliation. The difference is that their effects are more intense. This makes them capable of treating everything from breakouts and dark spots to dryness and wrinkles.
Peels are available in three strengths; superficial, medium, and deep. The strength that you choose will dictate how much downtime your skin needs after your peel.
Peels work best when used as a series of treatments, but you obviously don’t want to be dealing with the above-mentioned downtime on your wedding day. So, book yourself in for monthly peels for the next five months, with your last peel two weeks before your wedding day.
Look Into a Course of Laser Treatments to Clear Acne and Unwanted Hairs
Regular peels are great for beating breakouts, but if you really want to banish your acne, a course of laser treatments will work wonders. While you’ll notice some results after your first treatment, two or three sessions are needed for maximum benefits. Start now and you’ll have a beautifully clear complexion just in time for your wedding.Continue reading Everything You Need To Know About a 6-Month Bridal Skincare Checklist for Glowing Wedding Day Skin
