Are you embracing and looking forward to the most important day in your life? While a dream wedding gown is every bride-to-be’s priority, bridal beauty ranks high on the list too! If you’re willing to pay an extravagant amount for a professional and skilled makeup artist, might as well put in just a little more effort to prep your skin for the makeup to shine!

Here are 8 essential beauty tips to regain the glow and radiance of your skin for your big day!

1. Pre-Wedding Bridal Facial

Facial is like a bridal bootcamp for your skin, and it should be part of your ultimate pre-wedding plan. For maximum results, it is best to start your facial treatments as early as 6 months before your wedding, because… good results do not happen overnight. This is especially so if you’re facing serious skin problems such as acne, pimples and clogged pores, which will take a longer time to eradicate.

It is important to leave it to the professionals to clear out the gunk and dirt within your pores through facial extraction. Doing it in the wrong way may actually cause inflammation, and even acne scars. If it is going to be your first time doing facial, you might want to search for a facial spa that provides extraction with minimal pain for assurance.

2. Home Care Facial Devices

Facial treatments is recommended to be done every 2-3 weeks, but what about the rest of the days?

Home care devices are really useful especially if you cannot afford to have too many facial sessions per month. Some of these products may come with a hefty price, but if you use them diligently everyday, think from another perspective and the cost per day is actually not that high.

Do not belittle these small electronic skincare devices, they can actually produce amazing results for targetted skin concerns. The Foreo Luna and its other range of cleansers are used for deep cleansing your pores, and are said to remove 99.5% dirt, sweat and dead skin.

Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light++ and Lifetrons Beaute devices are also suitable for acne prone skin as the blue LED light is effective in killing bacteria and reducing skin redness.

3. Drink Plenty of Water

Water is one of the cheapest methods for hydrating your skin, and we mean plain water, not your usual bubble tea and Starbucks coffee! Drink at least 8 cups of water daily as increased water intake replenishes your skin fluids and maintain optimum skin moisture. Over time, your skin complexion will improve with better radiance and glow.

4. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

A great way of rejuvenating your skin is to consume more fruits and vegetables that contain the right source of vitamins. Fruits and vegetables in general contain antioxidants that boost immunity and reduce inflammation on skin. A steady supply of nutrients is vital to support the growth of new cells in your skin in order to keep your skin healthy and blemish-free.

Some recommended fruits include oranges, blueberries, papaya, kiwi, strawberries and many more.

5. Avoid Heaty And Spicy Food

From TCM standpoint, heaty food refers to the ‘yang’ and cooling food refers to the ‘yin’. The right way is to consume a balance of both. Too much intake of such greasy and fried food such as fries, potato chips and baked pastries regularly may aggravate your existing skin condition, thus contributing to worsen acne and clogged pores.

Eating too much spicy food may also cause acne and pimples, especially if you have sensitive skin. Spices affect your pH level in your body, and may cause skin inflammation.

6. Stick to A Good Skincare Regime

Facial treatments are cures to your skin problems, and skincare products help to maintain your skin to the optimal condition. Yes, skincare is expensive, but treat it as a long-term investment! Before getting hooked onto advertisements too quickly, remember that “miracle products” usually do not exist, or they may come with negative side effects.

It takes time and patience to find yourself the right brand and product, what works for others may not work for you. It is important to find out your skin type and problems before investing in any skincare products. If you have sensitive skin, always remember to try out the products on a small area just in case you don’t react well to the product!

7. Stick To A Proper Sleep Routine

Have you ever noticed the dullness and tiredness of your face when you did not get enough sleep the night before? A lack of sleep may lead to increase in stress hormones which is a possible cause of inflammation and acne breakouts.

Stick to a consistent sleep routine with about 8 hours of good quality sleep and you will notice your skin improving in no time.

8. Avoid Testing Out New Products On Your Face

The last thing you want is to get an allergic reaction from experimenting with new products. If you need to do some final preparation right before your big day, always stick to your existing skincare regime instead of testing out something new. It’s definitely not a risk you would want to take!

On the night before your big day, remember to rest early, enjoy a masking session and embrace for this life-changing event! It is a really special moment, so make it worthwhile!
