Prepare your skin so you look and feel your very best on your big day.
Here at The Wedding Gallery, we love swooning over the latest skincare and beauty products from our partner brands. Especially because we pride ourselves on bringing you the best makeup and skincare wedding tips.
So in today’s post, we want to highlight the brides who want to celebrate simple wedding makeup. We’re here to tell you how to up your game when it comes to skincare so you can enhance your glowing, healthy, simple skin.
Whether your wedding is coming up in a few weeks or you’ve just got engaged, we’ve got all the preparation you need in today’s post. Here’s the lowdown on how to glow from the inside out.
Our biggest tip when it comes to simple wedding makeup and skincare is not to leave it until the last minute. You don’t want to be thinking about any skin issues you’ve got a couple of days before the wedding. Your skin needs time to heal and rejuvenate.
If you add an exfoliator to your routine, this will help to remove dead skin cells. These can build up and leave your complexion looking dull and lifeless. So by removing this layer of dead cells, your skin will be fresh and will definitely look more radiant.
What will give you even better results with your skincare routine is using a facial cleansing device like LUNA from Foreo. When you use this device with your cleanser it uses T-Sonic pulsations to reveal a healthier and more radiant complexion. And you only need to use it for two minutes a day!
It’s no myth that glowing skin starts from within. So if you want to embrace the simple wedding makeup look, you need to be fuelling your skin from within.
One of our favourites is green tea. This is a great way to give your body a detox from caffeine-heavy drinks; and it can also increase your metabolism, especially if you’re exercising and eating well. Green tea is an antioxidant which means it brightens the skin can even reduce acne.
Green tea not your thing? Then eat your greens instead! Hearty, dark green vegetables can give your skin a real boost, help repair it and supply you with essential vitamins that keep you energised and happy. Something else that adds to this is drinking water. Honestly, there is nothing better for your skin. If you drink your recommended amount, you’ll automatically see a difference in your skin’s appearance and your energy levels too.
Moisturisers can really work their magic, especially if you invest in a high-quality one that matches your skin type. It can provide you with essential hydration that you need throughout the day, as well as reduce redness and prevent ageing. Plus it also works as an essential barrier to protect your skin from the weather and pollution.
We absolutely love the selection of moisturisers on offer from Dermalogica, that don’t just hydrate your skin but transform it.
If you’re embracing simple wedding makeup, there might be certain elements of your skin that you want to work on. So why not target your skincare regime to your specific skincare concerns?
Serums are a great place to start when it comes to boosting your skin. They contain much higher concentrations of skincare ingredients. You’re best using them before your moisturiser, especially in the evening. One of our favourites is the By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum. It creates a subtle veil of light-reflective pearl pigments to blur the visibility of imperfections. If you’re concerned with a dull, dehydrated complexion and want a radiance boost, this is for you.
Masks, on the other hand, can help treat even more specific problems, like dry skin. We adore the range of masks from SkinCeuticals as they help to naturally enhance your everyday skincare routine. Plus, a face mask also helps lower your stress levels so you can relax, which also improves your skin.
Getting married abroad or in the summer months? Or are you going on holiday before your wedding? Get yourself an SPF and wear it every single day, starting at least a month before the wedding. And definitely be careful when you’re sunning yourself – we don’t want any red patches or strap marks!
We’d also advise that you think very carefully about getting a fake tan before your big day. If this is something you definitely want, book yourself in for a professional spray tan instead of doing it yourself. It’s also worthwhile to have a trial spray tan beforehand, just to make sure you don’t get a reaction to it.
