Here’s a list of things you should keep in mind and avoid a few days before the wedding:
~Avoid substances that could give you oily skin, swelling and irritation. These include red meat, alcohol, caffeine, spicy or deep fried foods.
~ Dont do too much tanning before the wedding. You may start to peel!!
~ Remember to drink lots of water to keep hydrated and flush out the toxins.
~ Avoid using Retin A and Alpha Hydroxy creams prior to the wedding day. (They may cause skin peeling, flaking and irritation that will show in photos)
~ Exfoliate your skin with a manual exfoliator the day before your wedding.
~Have your brows professionally shaped prior to the wedding day. Nice brows are very important because they frame the eyes. Remove any unwanted facial hair at the same time.
~ Refresh your hair color a week before the wedding. Get rid of dark roots and split ends.
~Book a day at the spa to de-stress and pamper yourself .
~ Do NOT use any new facial products incase you get a bad reaction from them.
~Remove all traces of makeup the night before your wedding. Avoid dry lips by putting a lip moisturizer on your lips before bed and the morning of your wedding. Your face should be clean and product free when the make-up artist arrives.
~Make sure you wash and moisturize your face 15 mins before the make-up artist starts. This will help ensure that the makeup doesn't cause your skin to dry out.
~ If you have to go to your MUA's or salon for your makeup, please make sure to arrive on time. If you are running late, call to notify them.
~If you’re not hiring a make-up artist for the whole wedding day make sure you have a lipstick, powder and blotting sheets with you to touch up when needed.
Hope this helps!
