Wedding Bridal Hair and Makeup Artist Northern Ireland

The big day is almost here - your wedding day! In the months, weeks and days leading up to your special day, taking care of your skin is important to ensure you look and feel your best. Taking a few extra steps to prepare your skin can mean all the difference. With the right preparation you will have beautiful, glowing skin on your wedding day that will shine through in your photos for years to come.

Let's face it, getting ready for your wedding day can be overwhelming - you have enough to worry about without worrying about your skin. That's why we have created a step to step list to help you achieve that flawless look, tips on choosing products that are perfect for your skin type, and much more. Lets get started on your journey!

  • Exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate! Using a gentle exfoliant once a week to slough away dead skin cells. Not only will this help make your skin look brighter and smoother, it will provide the perfect base if you are planning on getting a light spray tan for your wedding day. Let's face it there's nothing worse than dry, patchy flaky tan.

  • Cleanse, tone, moisturise. It's the age old mantra that never fails if done regimentally. Using a cleanser morning and night will keep your skin clean, will remove any dirt, oil, and makeup. Toner will help to balance the PH of your skin, reduce redness, and help remove excess oils. It will also help reduce the appearance of pores, provide hydration and restore the skins natural protective barrier. A good serum and moisturiser will help keep skin hydrated and prevent it from becoming dry, keeping your skin looking healthy and refreshed. The correct serum and moisturiser will also help replenish your skin with essential vitamins and nutrients.

  • Protect! Apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. This will help prevent wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of premature aging.

  • Treat! If you have any skin concerns like acne or dark spots, use specific treatments like spot treatments, serums, and peels to help clear up your skin. Treating yourself to a course of facials tailored to your specific skin type will be an investment for your skin and your well being.

How do you choose the correct products however that are suitable for your skin type? There are so many products out there in the market it can be a minefield and feel extremely overwhelming. Before you start shopping for skincare products it is important to first consult with a skin specialist to determine your skin type and any existing skin conditions. Natural skin care products are usually the best option, try to avoid products that contain synethic chemicals and fragrances as they could potentially cause skin irritation.

Testing a product out before you commit to it is also vital. Try it out on a small area of skin to make sure that it doesn't cause an adverse reaction.

Knowing your budget is also important to reflect on, some skin care products can be expensive, but you CAN still find quality products that are more affordable. Weddings are costly enough without feeling the pressure to spend additional funds that you just don't have.

Last but not least, relax! Take some time for yourself to unwind. Stress can have a big impact on your skin, so make sure you take the time for you.
