Now that you’re done with the easy part, the engagement, it’s time to move one prepping the big day. Pre-wedding preparations are challenging, and all brides-to-be are stressed out.
Rather than become the next bridezilla and freak out over the most insignificant issues that might come along the way, it’s better to take things one step at the time.
Every bride should take care of her beauty before 2 or 3 or even 6 months before marriage.
How do you look amazing for your wedding day without over-thinking every aspect of your wedding? It all starts with looking after your body ahead of time. Your body should become a top priority.
Your aim should be to have a beautiful white smile, a flawless complexion, gorgeous hair, and a toned body.
How do you make it happen? In the following lines we’ll detail all the steps you need to take to look fantastic on your big day.
Beauty tips for bride before marriage:
Take advantage of the wonders of retinol:
Begin applying Retinol on your skin with at least 9 months before the big day. Since it is derived from a potent vitamin (namely vitamin A), retinol boosts cell turnover; it unclogs pores, and helps prevent hyper pigmentation.
As soon as you’re done chiseling your complexion and upper body (namely neck and V-line), move on getting rid of red bumps on your arms and back. Your skin has to look flawless because your wedding dress is most likely white; and revealing. Scrubbing can help; invest in a product that contains natural ingredients, such as sugar, coffee, baking soda, and honey.
As a general rule of thumb, when it comes to your hair you shouldn’t exaggerate with the hair. Stay within 2 shades darker/lighter from your natural hair color. If you still want to do a test, and try something completely new and different; doing it will at least 6 months before the big event. This way, your hair will have enough time to regenerate; and if you don’t like the cut or hairstyle, you can easily dye your hair again (but this time, in your natural color) without taking any other foolish risks. Simple is always better – it is a universal trend that will never fade away.
Eyebrow care and grooming
Your eyebrows matter just as much as your hair color and hairstyle. If the shape is not really what you want for the day of the wedding, prepare your brows in advance. Let them grow naturally for a couple of months, and then head to the salon for a natural re-shaping procedure. In extreme circumstances, the arch can easily take up to 6 months to change; it’s better to start as soon as possible.
Exercise to tone your body
It’s time to get serious about your workout routine. Do it with at least 6 months before the big day if you want to see results. Don’t aim at losing weight; work hard to tone your body as well. Begin with exercises you enjoy doing, like cardio, aerobic, pilates; move on to weights to strengthen your muscles and look fabulous in a strapless dress. It’s very important to commit, and make time to hit the gym at least 3 times per week.
Now that your body looks like a million dollars, it’s time to hit the salon for a full LED treatment or IPL. LED sessions help deal with rosy cheeks and redness; whereas an IPL treatment is a permanent hair removal procedure. It all sounds great, but if you want results, make sure to start with at least 3 months before the big event.
Last but not least, get a final facial massage and treatment with 1 week before the wedding. Clear away toxins, chemicals, and other imperfections that might interfere with your makeup. For the best results, use daily toners and an oil free moisturizer to hydrate your complexion, and keep it in top shape.
We understand that planning a wedding and looking after your body is stressful. But there’s no reason to panic if you start in advance. Enjoy the process, and find the time to relax. You deserve it!
