By helping to enhance those gorgeous natural faces, we make sure that on your special day (and all the days before and after) you are feeling like the goddess you are.
So, from us to you, we want to share our top 5 tips to enjoy gorgeous skin on your wedding day — helping you to make sure that your celebration goes exactly by your design!
First things first, consider your wedding day skin goals.
Truth be told, we all have different skin concerns or skin goals especially when it comes to wedding-ready skin. It is important for you to take time to think about what it is that you hope for your skin before the big day and write these things down, girlfriend. Whether it is to even out and balance your skin tone from years of sun damage or clear some congestion and breakouts on your back and shoulders so you can confidently wear that strapless dress, writing it down will help you begin to establish a game plan to achieve those goals.
Say yes to more skin (and self) care by visiting your aesthie-bestie.
Once you know what your dream skin goals are for your big day, it’s time to talk with your aesthetician about how to achieve these goals. Yes, it is absolutely lovely to enjoy a relaxing facial a few weeks before your wedding to restore and rebalance yourself from all that planning, but if you are looking to target specific skin concerns or ensure that your skin is blemish free on your special day, we recommend having a consultation with one of our expert aestheticians at least six months ahead of your special day to talk over your particular skin goals.
During this time, you and your aesthie get to create a treatment regimen perfectly designed for you, your dream skin, and any skin concerns you would like to see gone before you walk down the aisle. If you are looking to target skin concerns like acne, pigmentation and scarring, booking out your treatments a year in advance will give you the best chance at that perfect glow.
Make your home-care regimen sacred.
While monthly treatments are essential to success with your skin goal, having a home routine that is tailored to your skin goals is so important. Even more important is your consistency of those treatments, love!
We are here to support you in finding products and a routine that is best for you, as well as offering support and encouragement in keeping up with it!
Start drinking that water for a plump, youthful glow.
Not only does appropriate water intake give your skin that gorgeous glow, but it makes makeup applications look so much more flawless and natural. Plus, this is one of the easiest things to add into your routine to get that beautiful face ready for your big day!
