Bridal Beauty : Skin Care Time Line – 6 Months Prior To Wedding

Taking care of your skin early will allow you to treat any imperfections you are experiencing. If you have acne, see a dermatologist or skincare therapist (esthetician) about getting on a strict skincare routine. If you’re looking for an overall glow or anti-aging, think about a series of chemical peels. Here’s my plan for making my skin look it’s best starting at 6 months prior to the wedding: 

6 Months Prior To Wedding Date: 

– Nutrition Update: Cutting sugar and upping the amount of veggies now will help to lose any unwanted weight in a healthy way. A balanced Nutrition is key for healthy, radiant skin. Start each morning with a warm cup of lemon water to detoxify your body and start your morning off right will help keep you motivated in your healthy lifestyle. I’m a total sugar junkie (wish I wasn’t) so during the holidays, I’m guaranteed to indulge in some goodies. Don’t be too hard on yourself – stress can be just as damaging as a sugar overload 🙂  

– Series of Facials: Once a week for 5 weeks, I will be treating myself to a Glycolic Acid Chemical Peel to keep my skin looking fresh and youthful. Everyone’s skin is different, so it’s a good idea to meet with a skincare professional to come up with a plan that’s best for you. {You can always email me: brittany@studiobspa.com if you’re curious about setting up a plan} 

– Supplements: My skin is currently experiencing the effects of stress. Venue bookings, Guest List making, etc. have completely thrown off my sleeping patterns so it’s time to clear up these unwanted blemishes. I’m taking Complexion Clear (1 Vitamin in the morning and 1 at night) This will help to clear the skin and keep me in balance. 

**I’ve also been taking one Melatonin Supplement on nights where my mind is keeping me up. This helps to kick start your melatonin production and easy you into sleep. It’s important to maintain a solid sleep cycle so that your body {and skin!} can rebuild itself over night. 

– Daily Skincare Routine: If you’re not already using a consistent skincare routine, now’s the time to start. If you start using new products too close to the wedding date, you could have a negative reaction. It usually takes about 30 days to see the results of new products. Unless you have an allergic reaction, give your skin a chance to adjust. I would recommend working with a professional to select the products that will give you the results you’re looking for! 

**Don’t forget your neck & decollete! Since your gown no doubt shows off a little (or a lot!) of neck and decollete, start taking care of this overlooked region as soon as you can.
