For both the bride and groom their wedding day is truly special. It is one of the most important days in their life, so unsurprisingly they both want to look their best. As a result, most brides and grooms take the time to find a good hair and makeup artist well in advance of their wedding. Many couples also treat their wedding party to the same treatment, so that everyone looks fantastic in the photos.
Whilst hiring the right makeup artist is an essential step it is not the only thing you need to do if you want to look perfect on your wedding day. If you want the best results, you really need to start looking after your skin and hair well in advance.
If your hair and skin are in peak condition, your hair and makeup artist will be able to get the best results possible. It is far easier to achieve that flawless look if your skin and hair are in good condition in the first place.
However, an awful lot of couples forget that they need to condition their skin and hair prior to their wedding day. There is a tendency for couples to rely on their hairdresser and makeup artist to work their magic, on the day.
The sooner you start the better you will look
If you are currently not following a good skin and hair care routine, our advice is to start straight away. The sooner you start the better the results will be. You will see why that is so important by reading this article.
Eat the right diet
It is possible to make a marked difference to the condition of your skin and hair in just 28 days. However, if you start to improve your diet and feed your hair and skin with the right nutrients at least six months before your wedding the results will be far better.
Starting a basic cleansing and moisturising routine a month before your wedding will help, but it will only improve the appearance of the outer layer of your skin. If you really want to improve the condition of all three layers of your skin you can only do so from the inside out, which is why you need to make eating a healthy diet a part of your pre-wedding preparation.
Consider booking some face toning treatments
It is also well worth trying face toning. During these treatment sessions the muscles in your face are exercised, which gives most people an overall firmer look and helps to stimulate renewal in the lower layers of the skin. If you do decide to try these treatments, our advice is to do so well in advance of your wedding day. This makes sure that you get the best results, and if you should not have a good reaction to the treatment, your skin will have time to recover.
