Calling all Seattle Brides!
Bridal Beauty: Pre Wedding Skincare Solutions Preparing for your wedding day can feel like training for a marathon - hours and hours of work for just one day. But as any bride (or marathoner) would attest preparation is key to a successful day or run – and every minute is worth it! One of the key items on your wedding to-do list should be beauty prep. Implementing a skincare routine several months ahead of time will ensure you get that gorgeous bridal glow. Here are some key tips:
Be Gentle: Stick with a gentle, non-drying, sulfate-free cleanser with an alcohol-free toner and moisturizer as part of your daily regimen. Anything too abrasive will actually have the opposite effect on your skin. Start your cleansing program approximately 6 months ahead of the big day and your skin will thank you.
Up the Antioxidants: Beautiful skin starts deep on the inside. Adding foods high in antioxidants into your diet can help you achieve that great complexion. Citrus fruits such as cantaloupe, berries, and dark grapes are all loaded with vitamins, minerals and age-defying antioxidants and are perfect additions to your daily routine. We recommend two amazing products from Skinceuticals, CE Ferulic and Phloretin CF, either of these award-winning products added to your skin care routine will leave you feeling like a blushing bride.
Plan Ahead: If you are considering an aesthetic procedure to address wrinkles and fine lines you will need to start the process a few months ahead of time. Injectables like Botox and Juvederm have little to no downtime. But if you are considering a more invasive procedure such as an IPL (intense pulsed light) or microdermabrasion treatment to address discolored skin, you will need to factor in both prep, procedure and recovery time. Make sure you ask your aesthetic practitioner about special post procedure creams that can shorten the healing time.
Don’t Be Adventurous: Not all skin is the same. Different products and treatments impact people differently. We recommend you start testing new skincare products well ahead of time. For aesthetic procedures it’s important that you see a trained professional who can guide you through the benefits, side-effects and recovery time for each procedure.
