For Every Bride: Skin Care Tips and Makeup Techniques
All cosmetics and creams are not created equal. Brides should be especially wary of products with ingredients that can aggravate the skin, like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which can clog pores and irritate acne. For a list of irritants to look out for,
Sunscreen is an important part of any bride's daily routine.
Mineral-based make-ups can be a great alternative for women with acne prone skin.
Changes in seasons and hormones can alter the appearance of your skin. In the summer, your skin may be oily; in the winter it may be dry. Use products to help stabilize your current skin type versus relying on tried and true cleansers and lotions that are no longer appropriate.
Leading up to and on your big day, keep your pucker from being parched by applying a moisturizing balm with Hydraulic Acid and Shea Butter to soften lips and give them a soft, kissable look.
For ultimate wedding skin, consider a series of monthly facials to unclog pores, reduce fine lines, treat acne and even out skin tone up to six months in advance of your big day. Even if you are on a tight budget, one or two monthly or bi-weekly facials can do wonders and help reduce stress.
Do not experiment with new products and facials for the two weeks before your wedding--avoid potential irritation that could occur from new treatments or changes in your skin's reaction to them
