Brides-to-be spend so much time making sure that everything is perfect for their wedding that they often overlook the most critical aspect – themselves. Anyone would agree that putting together an event of this magnitude is stressful. If you’re not careful, the pressure starts to show. You look in the mirror and freak out. The once faint fine lines and wrinkles are more visible, you can barely put on your dress, and your hair and nails are dry, damaged, and brittle.
You only have a few months, if not weeks, before your big day. All you want is to look your best. But how? Fortunately, there are a few bridal beauty tips you can give a try. Continue reading to learn how to look flawless on your wedding day.
Stop The Bad Habits Now
Planning a wedding on top of managing everyday life can get stressful and cause a bit of anxiety. It’s not uncommon for brides-to-be to try and cope with these overwhelming emotions in negative ways. Whether you’ve started smoking, increased your caffeine intake, drink more than usual, or find comfort in junk food, it’s time to stop.
Each of these habits contributes to your health and outer appearance. If you want to look great for your wedding, you have to find healthier ways to cope. Enlist the help of your fiance or maid of honor to take some of the load off your plate, meditate, journal, read a book, or just go for a walk. Also, find healthier food alternatives. Instead of potato chips or french fries, opt for kale chips and zucchini fries.
Develop A Skincare Routine (And Stick To It)
What will you do about those fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, undereye bags, or pimples? As you work on kicking bad habits and reducing stress, you should also start a skincare routine – and stick to it. Shop for products designed to treat the problem you’re having. For instance, a retinol and vitamin C serum can tighten and firm your skin while alleviating dark circles.
Every day in the morning and before bed, wash, moisturize, and treat your skin and you should see significant improvements by the time you get hitched. If you don’t see any improvements or your skin condition worsens, you can always schedule an appointment with a dermatologist for more options.
Nourish Your Hair
If you’ve got dry and brittle hair, it’s a sign that your scalp and tresses need a little TLC. It lacks nutrients, vitamins, and the moisture it needs to grow healthy and strong. If you don’t do something soon, you could suffer from premature hair loss. So, wash your hair regularly, use products containing all-natural ingredients to rejuvenate your hair. Since your hair is brittle, it’s best to keep styling to a minimum until the wedding. Steer clear of heat and instead wear simple styles that don’t put too much stress on your hair.
Believe it or not, regular physical activity can improve your health and appearance. It can help your body release toxins, clear your skin, and give you a slim and trim figure you’ll be proud to flaunt. So, it’s time to incorporate some exercise into your day. Working out for 30 minutes to an hour five days a week is ideal for getting positive results. You can try yoga, dancing, jogging, bike riding, or swimming. If you have the time and money, joining a gym with a personal trainer is another option to help keep you motivated and on track with your goals.
Don’t let what should be the most joyous time in your life ruin your big day. If the stress of wedding planning starts to weigh on your appearance, jump into action to turn things around. Kicking bad habits, developing a skincare and hair care routine, and working out regularly are practical ways to undo the damage stress caused and have you looking flawless on your big day.
