The picture perfect wedding is the result of a year of planning on average. The dress. The flowers. The guest list. It’s no secret the stress of it all can take a toll on your health, especially your skin. If you’re a spring bride or the mother of the bride, there are steps you can take now to help your skin look picture perfect on the big day.

  • Spring is here but winter took a toll. Exfoliating once a week with the use of a moisturizer and broad spectrum sunscreen* helps address the dry, flaky skin exacerbated by the low humidity and dry harsh winds of the winter. It turns over skin cells to help your skin look dewy fresh as you walk down the aisle. And don’t forget to exfoliate your arms, shoulders and back, especially if the design of your gown draws attention to these areas.
  • Small switch. Big results. Gradually reduce your caffeine consumption. Try replacing your lattes with water. Drinking water helps rid the body of toxins and increases hydration. And pumped up hydration helps create radiance and that famous bridal glow.
  • Be ready for close-ups. A professional photographer will most likely be capturing the day’s events so both the bride and her mother will want to take special care with their makeup. Starting with a primer creates a base for wedding makeup by helping to give the skin the appearance of smoother texture, minimizing the appearance of open pores, and blurring the look of fine lines to help make them less obvious.
  • Get your beauty sleep. It’s not easy when you’re a bride, but try to get some rest. The simple fact is it helps skin look better after a good night’s sleep. Lack of sleep can lead to dark circles under your eyes. So if you want your skin to look beautiful–get your beauty sleep!
