Every bride wants beautiful radiant wedding day skin, especially for the fact that you’ll be taking a lot of photos and that you’ll constantly have your guests getting close to congratulate you.
The best advice I can offer is to start your skin preparations well in advance (at least 6 months) of your wedding day. It’s no good having the dress of your dreams, with stunning jewels and then have your make up applied to skin that that is not looking its best.
Below are some tips that I have picked up along the way and have also tried. Not everyone has the money to splash out on a facial every week, so I’ve also included ways that you can get good results from your skin without having to break the bank!
Strapped for cash?
- Moisturise daily
- Remove make up at night
- Exfoliate skin at least once a week
All of this should improve your complexion
I guess we’re all suckers when it comes to caffeine and sugary drinks, but drinking plenty of water has been said to clear up the skin. If you find this difficult, try taking a bottle of water with you to work, the gym or out shopping. It may be hard at first but it does get easier. Trust me I’ve tried it!

Got cash to splash?
If you can afford it why not book an appointment for a facial. It’s a good way to distress and detoxify the skin, and it does wonders for cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturising. Book your facial at least a few months before your wedding day. Everyone’s skin is different and can react in different ways. The last thing you want is a bad reaction the day before your wedding day.
If you have a serious skin problem and want specialist advice I would recommend seeing a dermatologist.
Now it’s not just what we do on the outside, but also what we feed our bodies. There are plenty of foods that can benefit our skin and here are just a few:
- Oily fish such as salmon and sardines are rich with Omega-3 fatty acids; therefore they can help replace fats lost in the skin that have been causing dryness. If you have eczema or dermatitis your skin will surely benefit from the anti-inflammatory qualities of fish oil.
- Citrus fruits such as oranges, tangerines and grapefruits are known for their high vitamin content, which in turn can help the skin detoxify and tone.
- Green veg such as spinach can improve the skins complexion
- The fibre in oats helps to control the release of insulin and the absorption of glucose, resulting in good insulin regulation -good control helps keep your skin firm and healthy.
Why not combat your hair and nails too with Vitabiotics Perfectil Plus. Part of the tablets nutritional information includes vitamin C, Iron, omega-3, magnesium and so much more. I always think it’s best to get the nutrition from the original source though.
