How to Get Your Skin Summer Wedding Ready… in Just 2 Months!
Even if you’re not planning your own wedding, chances are you’ll be attending at least one wedding this summer. However, unlike your outfit, skincare isn’t something that you can forget about until the last minute.
In fact, it takes at least 28 days (even longer as we get older) for skin cells to renew themselves, so now is the perfect time to start preparing your skin for all those big summer events coming up.
But just what are the best ways to get your skin looking fresh and fabulous, in just 2 months?
- Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise
Is your skin dry? Dull? Sad? Droopy? Peeling? Tight? Red? Irritated? Wrinkly? Believe it or not, these are all signs that your skin is dehydrated; it’s crying out for moisture. While moisturising may not leave you completely wrinkle-free, it is one of the best ways to minimise these symptoms and create a happier, healthier base for you to apply your makeup to. It’s best to moisturise regularly, both in the morning and at night, with a lighter moisturiser as the weather starts to pick up and we edge closer to the summer.
- Switch Up Your Lotions
With just a few short months until the big day, now is the perfect time to take a closer look at exactly what you’re putting on your skin. Many creams and lotions that you can pick up at the supermarket are certainly cheap and cheerful, but could they be doing more harm than good? If you really want your skin to look healthy and fresh, it’s best to avoid putting substances such as chemical preservatives on your face which can increase dryness. Instead, look for medical-grade skincare brands, such as Alumier.
- Give Your Skin A Nutrient Boost
Many of us drink smoothies; nutrient-packed drinks that give the body all the goodness it’s been craving. What we often don’t realise that our skin needs exactly the same sort of TLC. However, there’s debate about just how effective diet is on the appearance of skin, so facial treatments may be a better option. Mesotherapy is one treatment to keep an eye out for. This delivers all sorts of vitamins and minerals directly into the middle layer of skin and produces amazing results that could last for up to 2 years!
- It’s Time to Shine
Don’t leave it too late to start getting your skin summer wedding ready. Remember that it takes time for your skin to rejuvenate, and that some types of treatment, such as skin peels, can leave the skin looking a little red in the first few days as the exfoliants get to work.
