Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day, but, with all the stresses of wedding planning, this can be easier said than done. Fortunately, even if you’re short on time (and patience!), there are small changes that you can make to your daily routine to make sure you look a million dollars when you say “I do”.
Read on to discover five tips on how you can make sure you look your best on your wedding day, with solutions for your skin, makeup, and so much more!
1. Practice meditation
While a little bit of stress can be good for you, too much can wreak havoc on your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. To make sure that stress doesn’t affect how you look on your big day, start practicing meditation on a daily basis. This can be carried out from the comfort of your own home and doesn’t need any special equipment or expertise.
Alternatively, breathing exercises can also help to manage your stress levels and help to keep you feeling cool, calm, and collected.
2. Drink a lot of water
Thirsty and dehydrated skin can make any fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominent and also stop you from getting that highly sought-after bridal glow.
Therefore, in the run-up to your wedding day, you need to make sure that you’re getting the recommended amount of water each day. It can also be a good idea to up your intake of foods with a high-water content such as lettuce, cucumber, and celery.
If you’re not a fan of plain water, then why not add some slices of orange and lemon or a few herbs such as mint or rosemary?
3. Practice your makeup
Whether you intend to do your wedding makeup yourself or you’re planning to hire a professional makeup artist, you should always do a practice run (or two) before your wedding.
If you’re planning to do your own makeup, which is becoming increasingly popular with brides, then checking out these make-up tips for your big day is a must.
For those who would prefer to use a professional makeup artist, make sure that they understand your vision rather than push their own preferences on you.
4. Book a spray tan
Everyone feels that they look better when they have a little bit of color, so it can be a good idea to book a spray tan ahead of your special day.
Although you may be tempted to save some money and go for a DIY tan, just imagine how you’d feel if it went wrong.
5. Get regular facials
Rather than book a facial a few days before your wedding, it’s much better to schedule regular facials in the months leading up to your big day, as this will have a greater effect on the overall appearance of your skin.
Never try a new facial in the run-up to your wedding as you may experience an adverse reaction that could potentially ruin your wedding makeup.
