How to Get the Perfect Complexion for Your Wedding
20 Sep 2017
Brides have so much to worry about on their wedding day, from coordinating the little details of the ceremony to making sure all of their guests are happy. The last thing a bride wants to worry about is whether or not a giant zit is going to appear the morning of her big day.
Get the Perfect Complexion
Though many of us like to believe that acne is something only teenagers go through, it just isn’t true. Sometimes, acne will stick around for a very long time. When does acne go away? We hate to say it, but sometimes it never does. Which is why you need to prepare for the worst and do everything in your power to ensure that acne isn’t going to rear its ugly head on your special day.
Prepare WAY in Advance
If you want to get the perfect complexion for your wedding, you should start preparing your skin at least three months in advance. This is when you need to start thinking about your skin, what you are putting on it and what you should be putting on it. Heck, you may not even be engaged yet (you may not even have a boyfriend yet), but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t jump on the skincare bandwagon early. If you have any major—or minor—concerns about your skin, address them now by making an appointment to see a dermatologist or an aesthetician. They can help you create the best action plan for your face and even work out a schedule for you to follow.
Work On Your Diet
What you put in your body makes a big difference on your appearance. While there are plenty of myths out there about the connection between eating certain foods and having breakouts (such as greasy foods—unless you’re rubbing them on your face, you’re probably fine eating that plate of fries), but a lot of the tips out there are completely true. Take water, for instance. You should be drinking tons of water to help your skin stay hydrated. Water will also help with weight loss and clearing toxins from your body, so staying hydrated is a win on many levels.
While we literally just said that eating greasy food won’t cause a breakout unless you touch your face, a cleaner diet can still have amazing impacts on your skin. What you eat will have an impact on your hormones, which in turn has an impact on your complexion. Trying your best to eat clean and healthy will only provide positive effects. Try adding more things like almonds, chia seeds, salmon and/or tuna, vegetables (and lots of them) and fruit to your diet.
Exercise Your Butt Off
Just like eating cleaner, exercise is another one of those “good for the entire body” tips that can make a big difference when it comes to your skin. Exercising will not only help regulate your body’s glucose, insulin and leptin levels, but it will also release those feel-good chemicals that help combat depression. All of which is definitely needed to help your peace of mind before the big day. Specifically though, going for something like resistance training will help tighten your skin and give you a more youthful look. Even the act of sweating is actually helpful, since it causes your pores to open up and push out all of that trapped dirt and oil. Just be sure to thoroughly shower right after working out, so you can get rid of it all for good.
Set Aside Some Serious Money for Facials
Facials can do wonders for your complexion, so if you haven’t started investing in them now, what is the hold up? With countless types out there that are design to address a wide range of needs and concerns, regular facials can help clear up congested pores, even out skin tone and help with scarring. Facials might even reduce the amount of makeup you have to wear on your big day.
