All the planning and arranging leading up to the big day can put your skin under a lot of stress. As the bride-to-be, it’s important that you feel confident with your skin on your wedding day (even with your hair and makeup at a 10/10). To help you curtail any last-minute breakouts and tackle any existing blemishes before your wedding, Vivid Health & Beauty Skincare explores how to plan and start a wedding skincare routine. With a little dedication and reliable products, your skin will be glowing in no time.
Evaluate Your Skin’s Needs
If you’re not familiar with your skin’s texture or oil tendencies, it’ll be a lot more challenging to plan and start a wedding skincare routine. Start by considering whether you have dry, oily, or combo skin. Knowing what type of skin you have and whether it’s sensitive will help you find products that target those characteristics.
Another essential component of creating a quality routine is to recognize how your skin responds to various elements. Lifestyle factors, such as food and stress management, can have a major influence on your skin, making it important to assess which habits benefit or hinder your skincare journey.
Even on the cloudiest of days, you should incorporate SPF into your routine. There’s no shame in wanting to catch some sunny rays, but remain mindful of your skin’s susceptibility to the sun.
Always apply a thin layer of broad-spectrum SPF following your moisturizer. Your facial sunscreen’s SPF should be at least 30 for adequate coverage.
Find the Moisturizer That’s Right for You
Unfortunately, there’s no one-moisturizer-fits-all solution when it comes to hydrating your skin. Below is a mini-guide for selecting a moisturizer based on your skin type.
- Oily Skin: Hyaluronic and ferulic acid help skin maintain water, which is helpful for oily skin that wants hydration without additional oiliness.
- Dry Skin: Hyaluronic and ferulic acid are beneficial to dry skin, too. However, in this case, you don’t have to limit yourself to oil-free formulas, as your skin craves plenty of moisture.
- Sensitive Skin: Look for fragrance-free moisturizers.
- Acne-prone Skin: Opt for noncomedogenic moisturizers. These types of lotions are void of ingredients that cause clogged and blocked pores.
Get Your Facial Treatments in the Books
When it comes to treating yourself, don’t wait to schedule an appointment. With the hustle and bustle of wedding planning, it’s all too easy to overlook necessary moments of self-care.
To keep up with your wedding skincare routine, plan your facial treatments in advance. Putting some pampering in your calendar will ensure you get some rest and relaxation amid all the organizing, ensuring that your skin receives the TLC it deserves.
