Up to one year ahead of the big day

Updated: Jan 29, 2022

Let’s have a cup of your favourite tea or coffee and allow me to create some wedding ideas just for you.

You will most likely want a timeless look and preparation of your skin is as important as makeup.

  1. Relax

No matter what occasion you have, be it wedding or any other occasion, the most important way to prepare your skin is to RELAX. Simple, because stress shows on your skin! Meditation or just taking time to focus on your breathing several times a day will help to reduce your stress levels and fill the skin with oxygen.

2. Exercise.

If you don’t like exercise go for a walk or try cycling. Alternatively, listen to your favourite tunes or podcast. Simply spending time in nature every day really helps to relax while keeping you fit and healthy.

3. Healthy food

Nutritionally healthy meals are the most important thing to do to your skin: green tea, leafy green veggies, avocados, olive oil and fish like salmon or tuna.

4. Wearing sunscreen

Sun is ageing. One recent study found that UV-light exposure accounts for 80% of visible facial aging. So a daily application of SPF 50 is essential, especially in Summer.

5. Exfoliation

Exfoliating your skin is very important but be sure not to exfoliate daily, as too much will cause your skin to be red and sensitive. Exfoliating once or twice a week is a good idea and why not start in the months leading up to your wedding?

6. Schedule monthly facials

Monthly facials are a great way to get your skin on the right path. They offer a great opportunity to address any concerns and will help set you up with a great skincare routine.

Important! Any skin reactions require time to correct in time for your wedding, so I strongly advise:

  • Not to start using a new skincare product up to one month before the wedding. This is not the right time to experiment! Just make sure you’re cleansing your face twice a day, removing all your makeup and applying all the right skincare products.

  • If you like to visit a Brow artist please do it at least one week before your wedding day, but if it's your very first time, please do this at least a few months in advance. An initial trial followed by a repeat appointment a week before the big day will ensure no last minute skin reactions.

  • If you would like to wear eyelash extensions for your wedding, please start to wear them at least two months before your wedding day, with an advance patch test. You should wash them regularly to avoid any inflammation of the eyelid.

  • Microblading or any permanent makeup should be done at least 2 months before your wedding day.

Thank you for reading,
