Every Bride wants to walk down the aisle with glowing, clear skin for all to see – but for many brides – this takes time and effort. The secret (as with most things in life) to beautiful skin on your wedding day is proper preparation, and we recommend working out a beauty regimen up to 6 months in advance of your big day, so you can look your best on your big day.
Below, we run through five products which we recommend using during this period, as well as sharing a few tips to help you overcome any skincare issues you may be facing.
Cleansing should already be a big part of everybody’s skincare regimen. Ideally carried out twice a day, it’s the ideal product to wake you up ready for the day ahead, as well as help prepare you for sleep – removing the dirt and grime that your face has picked up during the day.
Cleansing is one of the most enjoyable, and refreshing parts of any skincare routine. There are literally hundreds of cleansers to choose from – so try and choose a cleanser which has been designed to work with your skin type, such as the Clarins Cleansing Milk – designed for use with combination & oily skin.
We all know how important moisturising your skin is, it not only feels fantastic – it also reduces the chance of breakouts, whilst helping your skin stay looking nourished, healthy and most importantly young. Again, it’s important to choose a moisturiser specific to your skin type, keeping the nutrient level of the skin balanced.
Ideally, you should also use both daytime and nighttime moisturisers – which have different consistencies for complete skin nourishment. Those with limited time, should choose a brilliant all rounder – like the Clarins Restorative Day Cream – which is suitable for all skin types.
Face Masks are a fantastic way of achieving excellent skin results, in quick time frames. These intensive masks can serve a wide range of purposes – with some focussing on exfoliation, and others concentrating on moisturising. Moisturising face masks are some of our favourites, these masks gently envelop the skin with nutrients – leaving you feeling refreshed and your skin looking fantastic. The Clarins Extra-Firming Mask is a great choice.
For those with specific skin issues and complaints, there is a range of targeted skincare products – which have been scientifically developed to deal with, and improve certain skin complaints. One of the most popular products within this targeted skincare range is the Clarins Mission perfection Serum. This Serum targets everything from discolouration to pigmentation, red marks left behind by breakouts as well as overall redness.
Eye Cream does an excellent job of specifically targeting and improving the condition and feeling of the skin around the eyes. Reducing wrinkles, improving skin tone and reducing bags is all in a day’s work for a scientifically developed eye cream. The Clarins Firming Eye Wrinkle Smoothing Cream is a perfect all round eye cream.
