Three pre-wedding skincare tips

Three pre-wedding skincare tips

Gorgeous Gibraltar is a picture-perfect setting for the overseas wedding of your dreams. And naturally, alongside Gibraltar’s spectacular scenery, as a bride you want to look incredible on your wedding day too. That’s why skincare is a vital ingredient in ensuring you look your best.

Here are three tips that can help you on your way to a flawless complexion.

1) Stay hydrated and well-nourished

Beauty begins on the inside. In the lead up to your wedding day, don’t be tempted to indulge in too many pre-celebratory cocktails, as alcohol will dehydrate your skin. Instead, be sure to drink plenty of water. Also try to avoid eating too much sugar, as it can encourage inflammation. Instead, opt for vitamin C-rich foods for a boost of antioxidants; fatty acids from foods such as avocados, nuts and oily fish; and leafy greens which are loaded with important vitamins and minerals.

2) Keep it simple

Brand new skincare products and treatments might seem like a well-deserved luxury in the lead-up to your wedding day, but be careful: new products can make you break out or even provoke an allergic reaction, especially if you’re prone to sensitive skin. It’s best to begin using new products a few weeks before to give your skin time to adjust.

On the same note, facials can actually draw out impurities and encourage redness and breakouts in the days immediately following the treatment, so schedule your pre-wedding facial for at least a month before the big day. If having one any closer than that, opt for a gentle treatment with no harsh exfoliation or unfamiliar products.

3) Sleep well and avoid stress

It’s called beauty sleep for a reason. If you want to look your beautiful best on your wedding day, getting at least the recommended eight hours of shut-eye will definitely help. To promote good-quality sleep, you could book a massage, soak up the sun on a walk along the beach, or unwind with meditation or yoga.
