One of the crucial things you can do to ensure the best possible bridal beauty experience is to try new treatments as early as possible. If your skin reacts badly or you don’t like the results, you’ll have time to repair and heal your skin before you and your partner pose for wedding photos.
Exfoliate Your Skin Regularly
While you try other beauty treatments, exfoliate your skin regularly to experience all the incredible benefits. Exfoliation unclogs your pores and allows beauty treatments to reach deeper into your skin, while also improving blood circulation.
Enjoy a Few Facials
Facials are a traditional beauty treatment many people enjoy, so try one out if you haven’t yet. Hydrafacials are a relatively new option that will hydrate your skin quickly without the pain and irritation of traditional extractions, which makes it an easy and enjoyable procedure. Continue your facials up to your wedding day for lasting results.
Keep It Simple
Whatever treatments you want to try, remember to keep it simple. A complicated beauty routine only adds stress to your life. Simple and effective treatments are much better for you in the long run.
Things You Shouldn’t Do
There are good reasons to stay away from some beauty treatments before your wedding. Avoid these until after you’ve left your reception.
Try Treatments That Make You Uncomfortable
Some people will go to great lengths for their beauty routine. Don’t feel like you have to try any treatment that makes you uncomfortable, like getting a vampire facial or letting tiny fish eat dead skin off your feet.
Follow a Generic Treatment
Generic beauty treatments claim to help anyone, no matter what their beauty goals are. Never trust an “all-inclusive” beauty treatment. Instead, spend your money on something targeted to help your specific concern or focus area.
Ditch Your Regular Skin Care Routine
Most women already have a daily skin care routine that works for them, so don’t ditch it for bridal beauty treatments. Your skin may go haywire without the routine in place, leading to worse problems you could have avoided.
Thread or Wax Before Your Wedding
Maintaining your eyebrows is a longstanding beauty trend, but don’t thread or wax them before your wedding. There’s a chance you might experience bumps or rashes if you haven’t done that treatment before. Polish up your eyebrows a month out from your wedding, and pluck as needed in the weeks after.
Enjoy Something New
It’s fun to try something new in your beauty routine, so treat yourself before your wedding. Enjoy something you know will work well for your skin type, and give yourself enough time before your wedding day in case a treatment goes wrong.
