“You’re Absolutley Glowing!!”
It’s a statement we hear almost every single day while working with our beautiful Las Vegas bridal clients.
While the excitement of such a special day and compete joy of getting to marry your love most certainly add to that “wedding day glow” there’s some work to be done to achieve that look on your wedding day and everyday.
Keep in mind that good skin does not come into play one week before the wedding. You should start now and invest in your face for not only your wedding, but for your lifetime.
GOOD SKIN AND GOOD COLOR GO HAND-IN-HAND
Good skin care starts from within… here are a few best practices to get you on your way to healthy glowing skin.
Eat Super Foods
No matter what your skin type is—oily, dry, normal or a combo— it craves water. Sure, drinking water helps, but snacking on naturally hydrating foods like watermelon works too. Other super foods for your face? Try grapefruit, cucumbers, tomatoes and kale.
Wash With Your Hands
Here’s a secret most dermatologists will tell you: Don’t use a washcloth on your face. Amy Wechsler, MD, a psychiatrist, dermatologist and author of The Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Less Stress, Gorgeous Skin and a Whole New You, washcloths can harbor bacteria. Instead, use just your hands. But first, use a separate makeup remover to tackle waterproof mascara and long-wearing lipstick.
Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Every time you swipe on your blush with a dirty brush, you add a layer of acne-causing bacteria to your skin. Cleaning your brushes is easy, just read our 3 DIY Tips To Clean Your Makeup Brushes to learn more.
