Wedding planning can be absolutely stressful. When we’re stressed, it usually manifests physically. And those manifestations really aren’t pretty! We’re talking about breakouts, dry skin, eye bags, and other things that make you feel less confident about yourself. For a bride, looking unpleasant on your wedding day could probably be their worst nightmare!
Your wedding is a big day so you would want to look perfect and feel great on this very special day. It isn’t just about your wedding day make-up and hair-do. It’s more than that. To achieve your best self during your wedding day, you need to invest in some beauty preparation.
Here are some pre-wedding beauty tips to get you started early:
1. Manage your stress
One of the main things that contribute to how you look is stress. If you are stressed out, it will affect your overall health which will eventually show on your physical appearance. Manage your stress. Wedding planning is stressful and can sometimes turn you into what they call a bridezilla so you have to learn how to lessen and manage your stress. Stop worrying about things that you cannot control. Let your wedding planner do the worrying and troubleshooting.
More than all the beauty regimen that you usually do to pamper yourself, lessening your stress will help you look healthy and fresh on your wedding day.
2. Visit your dermatologist
Before you get started with your skincare regimen, make sure to set an appointment with your dermatologist first. They can advise you on the best strategy to achieve the perfect skin for your wedding. It is ideal to consult your dermatologist first so you know what routine and treatment best suit your skin. It would be better to listen to your trusted dermatologist rather than experiment on your own as you might not have enough time to recover in case something goes wrong.
3. Eat healthier
To achieve that healthy glow, watch what you consume. Eating healthy will make you look healthy as well. Maintain a healthy diet throughout the course of your wedding preparation. It will help you look good and feel good.
As much as possible, avoid sugary food, sodium, and processed food. Lessen your alcohol intake, completely skip it if you can, and try juicing fresh fruits instead. Drink more water and eat more fruits and vegetables. All these can help clear your skin and make you feel less bloated on your big day.
4. Get active
In addition to eating healthy, you should also start getting active. Working out will help you maintain a good body. Moreover, staying active can make you feel good and happier as physical activity releases endorphins. With all the stress that you might experience with your wedding preparation, exercising can help you manage your stress. A quick exercise can help you clear and calm your mind.
5. Consult your hair colorist.
If you plan on changing your hair color for the wedding, you should plan it ahead of time. Think about how you want your hair to be during your wedding and plan your hair color. Test out the color that you want. Ideally, you should pick a color – either lighter or darker – within two shades of your natural hue.
By doing this early, if your preferred color doesn’t work for you, you still have time to fix it. If ever you got the right color the first time, make sure to have it retouched a few days before the wedding so it will look its best.
6. Get a good night’s sleep.
After all the beauty preparation for your wedding, the last and very important thing that you should do is get a good night’s sleep. No matter how intricate your beauty preparations were, if you weren’t able to get quality sleep the night before your wedding, your face might appear puffy and your eyes might look tired.
Having a good night’s sleep will also put you in a good mood and give you enough energy to face the day.
Don’t stress yourself too much with the need to look perfect on your wedding day. These are just some tips that you can do to help you feel good about yourself. Keep in mind that in the eyes of your partner, you will always be the most beautiful. You are perfect and you are enough.
