Preparations, Preparations, Preparations
Stress and anxiety build up as the wedding day approaches. You are checking on last minute details for the flower arrangements and meeting the caterers for the food, beverages, and table setting. There are even those trivial problems among the bridesmaids or issues with the groomsmen that you have to handle. With everything about the wedding going through your mind constantly every day, it's a good guess that you might have neglected yourself, your skin, and your body.
The Real Deal
When it comes to it, the wedding day is all about you and your future husband - the vows you will take, the rings, and the kiss that seals the deal. You have taken care of everything else. Now it's time to focus your attention on you.
An Artist's Canvas
As an artist needs a good canvas to work on his masterpiece, the makeup artist needs to do his magic and work on you. So as much as possible, please take care of your skin. Avoid exposing yourself to the sun for long periods of time, and if you must, don't forget to wear sun block that’s at least SPF-15. It has been proven that the sun hastens the aging process of your skin, and you wouldn't want to have fine lines and wrinkles on your wedding day.
Eating Right and Regular Exercise
Eat healthy and do exercise at least a couple of times a week. Doing these can do wonders on your skin. Not only are you burning up excess fat to maintain your waistline in order to fit into the wedding gown of your dreams, but you are also stimulating your body to release harmful toxins through sweating.
Take Care of Your Face
The face is usually the one that receives the most attention. It is the also the area that carries most of the makeup, so you better take care of yours. If you have oily skin that is prone to break outs, it's high time that you visit your dermatologist at least a couple of months before the set date to take care of your skin problems. You would want to have a near perfect canvas for your makeup artist.
Where's that Bright Smile?
Don't forget your teeth. A happy smile with bright white teeth is what you would want to be captured for your wedding photographs. You can either go to professionals and have them whiten your teeth, or you could do it at home with teeth whitening kits. On your wedding day, dazzle your guests, and even your future husband, with your smile.
If you haven't had enough sleep since the day you started planning the wedding, then you should start now. There are more benefits to sleep than just avoiding dark bags under the eyes. Having a long, restful sleep drives away the anxieties and a stress of the day and it gives you more energy to fulfill the next day's tasks.
Ready to Start the Masterpiece
So the canvas is now ready, and it is time for the makeup artist to do his job. With a pampered and a near perfect base, it won’t take a great effort to make you beautiful because you already are. He would only be accentuating your assets with colors that go with your skin tone and your gown.
