Skincare: Brides and grooms - prep your skin to perfection for your wedding day
Cleanse: Cleanse the skin with a skincare wash or creamy cleanser suitable for your skin.Switch to a cream cleanser in the winter months and a cleansing wash in the summer months.
Tone: Toning the skin refines the pores and acts like a secondary cleanser. This is an important part of skincare for a bride and groom on the lead up to the wedding.
Exfoliate: This is one of the most important steps of skin care. Exfoliating the skin will buff, polish and deflate dry dead skincells.This resurfacers the skin for grooms to have the most perfect smooth skin and brides to have flawless looking smooth skin, it allows the foundation to sit better on the skin rather than sitting on micro dead skin cells.You can use a flannel or an eco friendly scrub and use circular motions on the skin.
Moisturise: Moisturising the skin is so important, especially in the winter months. Cold and wind strips the skin of moisture and that's when surface expression lines can be more visible on the skin. Up a high level of hydration on the skin. I highly recommend the Clinique moisture surge skincare range for the ultimate in hydrating the skin. This is an oil free cream-gel texture suitable for both men and women's skin.
Eye cream: Eye cream is really important to hydrate around the delicate eye area. You only need a pea size amount and it can be applied in circles towards the eye and applied in a figure of eight motion around the crows feet area or smile lines.
Lips: There's nothing worse than dry lips and in the winter they go very dry and need a lip balm or protection. Look at the paw paw ointment or the Manuka doctor lip balm or oil. It's an essential and needs to be applied liberally for smooth kissable lips on your wedding day.If lips are really dry just use some brown sugar with a little coconut oil to gentle deflate them. Wipe away and apply your lip balm.
