How to Get Beautiful Skin for Your Wedding Day

Wedding Day Skincare Routine
Poof! A genie appears and grants you three wishes for your wedding day. You want perfect skin, perfect skin, perfect skin (okay and the ultimate dress, not to mention eternal happiness). Look your best at the altar with these wedding skin care tips.

Oil production gives skin its dewy glow (and makes makeup-free beauties look absolutely radiant), but it can also cause pimples. What's a soon-to-be bride to do? Purify with a gentle facial cleanser and avoid potentially drying soaps or astringents (dehydration breeds fine lines and can make pimples peel). You can also spot treat pimples with acne-zapping products containing salicylic acid. The best way to prevent blemishes from cropping up in the first place is to catch up on winks (never sleep in makeup), take Vitamin C, and exercise regularly leading up to the big day. If you get the chance, sit in a steam room post-workout to draw out toxins, rev up microcirculation and put a rosy glow in your cheeks (it's better than blush).

What separates lovely wedding day skin from lackluster skin? Regular exfoliation. Speed up cell renewal—and reveal radiant new skin—by sloughing off the dead outermost layer with gentle exfoliating beads two to three times a week. If your in your thirties or beyond, use products with retinol two to three times a week since they're proven to stimulate and boost collagen growth.

A truly gorgeous wedding day glow comes from within. Eat lots of leafy greens, supplemented with a daily multi-vitamin, to boost skin's functions, and fight the forces of time internally with supplements like omega fatty acids, probiotics, and super greens (such as wheat grass and spirulina). MSM, an organic dietary sulfur, promotes tissue and cell function. It will give you energy while flushing out toxins and boosting collagen production. As a long term rule, preserve your collagen reserves for as long as possible by avoiding smoking, sun tanning, and yo-yo dieting. The cumulative effects inevitably show up in the form of dark circles and a lackluster complexion.

I always recommend to my bride-to-be's to get a facial 1-2 months prior to the wedding. That way, you have freshly exfoliated skin. If you get any breakouts, it will be prior to the wedding. That and also time your waxing appt, so it's ahead of time as well! This comment has been removed.

Thanks for the article. I heard that some people gain weight when they take MSM...so be careful and see how your body reacts to it in advance. This comment has been removed.

Yeah I would agree on staying away from the sun...or at least use a strong sunscreen and make sure you're not out for a prolonged period of time! This comment has been removed.
