Guest Post :: How To Prep Your Skin For The Wedding Day

I love how fall has become one of the more popular wedding seasons. The weather is always so perfect and there aren’t any holidays till Halloween, so it definitely adds a little extra excitement to the seasons! It goes without saying that everyone wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day and skin care is a major part of that. Today Peter Minkoff is sharing a few tips on how to prep your skin for the wedding day!
For our wedding day, we want to do everything we can to look perfect. This means extraordinary makeup, great-looking nails, a breathtaking dress and hairstyle and of course, majestic skin. All these things are important to cover, but this article will be dedicated to the last one. If you want to know how to prepare your skin for the wedding day, keep reading to get all the information you need. 

Used cold tea bags for tired and puffy eyes

We can start with the skin around your eyes, more precisely with that terrible-looking puffiness that makes you look tired even when you’re not. You can put bags of green, black or chamomile tea in hot water for a minute or two and after removing them, let them chill in the refrigerator. As soon as they get cold enough, place one bag on each eye and hold like that for at least 10 minutes. You can do it for longer if you feel like it.

Get brighter lips with coconut oil and raspberries 

First liquefy a tablespoon of coconut oil by warming it, then add several red raspberries. It doesn’t matter if they are fresh or frozen, because both will surely do. Mash these berries until it all becomes very smooth. After that, place them in a small glass and refrigerate until they become firm. With fingers or a lip gloss brush, you can apply the mixture on your lips. Repeat every few days.

Blend pomegranate, raspberry, and sweet almond oil

You can create a natural antioxidant-rich oil blend by using all the ingredients mentioned above. Apply it after cleansing or putting on makeup to get the best results. You can get a very nice-looking radiant skin that’s perfect for your wedding day.

Consider a skin treatment

You can always turn to a professional and ask for help from someone who is an expert in this field. If you live in Sydney, you can find an amazing laser clinic in Cleveland. You can try microdermabrasion and remove the surface layer of dry, dead skin cells. You have some other options too, like skin needling, peels and enzyme therapy. 

Get a soft and silky pillowcase

It’s very important that your pillow is soft enough, because coarser fabrics may damage your skin. A bad choice of fabrics can cause friction and skin compression that occurs while you sleep and you can also notice extra lines in the morning. You should also switch sides occasionally and sleep on your back to avoid wrinkles from pressure in certain areas.  

Coconut water for dry skin

You can start every morning with a glass of fresh and unsweetened coconut water. Throughout the day, drink filtered water as well. In addition, include skin-hydrating foods (wild salmon, avocado, olives, and coconut) at meals. It’s as simple as that.

Wild salmon for sun-damaged skin

If you didn’t have a clue that eating wild salmon is great for skin that’s been damaged from too much sun exposure, now you do. However, eat it to prevent this, not after you already have the problem. Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from the harmful effects of UVA sun damage and it acts as an internal sunblock.

No more sugar!

Sugar is the reason why we have acne, dry itchy skin, and wrinkles. Ditch it from your diet for at least 10 days before your wedding and you’ll see remarkable results. As you know, there are many other reasons why eating sugar is bad. Just don’t consume it. It’s not good, at least not too much of it.

Organic papaya mask for removing dead skin

Papaya contains a natural enzyme called papain, and pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain. They can naturally exfoliate your skin and leave it smooth and soft. Unripe papayas have higher amounts of papain, so use them for the best benefit. Yet, ripe papayas are less likely to trigger an inflammatory reaction, which is better for sensitive skin.

Stop stressing and start doing what’s healthy 

Perhaps this is the most important tip, because it’s good for your health in general and not just the skin. Meditate, try mindfulness, eat organic and healthy ingredients, exercise, find a hobby you really delight in, treat yourself to a nice bubble bath (alone or with your spouse-to-be). Planning a wedding can be stressful, but don’t let it take its toll on you. Enjoy life and feel all that bliss!
You can always find more details on how to take care of your skin and prepare it for your special day, but these are probably the best things you can do. Hopefully, they will be of help and you’ll have a wonderful day at your wedding, unforgettable and like no other.
