You’ve set the date, picked your dress, and know exactly how you want your hair to look—but if you’re a bride-to-be, have you given any thought to your skin? Oftentimes in the beautiful chaos of wedding planning, everything makes it onto the to-do list, except for a skin care prep routine. With so much going on, it’s totally understandable that a few things slip your mind—after all, you’ve got quite a lot going on! But when it comes to your big day, chances are you’ll want your skin to luminous as you walk down the aisle and in all of your photos. Below, we share seven tips to help you achieve glowing skin by your big day.
Take inventory of your complexion so that you can start a tailored skin care routine as soon as possible. Whether you have dark circles, large pores, or something else you’d like to address, look for products that can help minimize the appearance of these imperfections before you get married.
Don’t let dull skin get you down! Use a peel pad, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads, before bed. They’re formulated with glycolic acid to help resurface dull, uneven skin tone and rough texture. Plus, the multi-ply textured pads physically resurface dead skin cells. Immediately, skin will look brighter, clarified, and more radiant, while skin tone will look more even with continued use over time. Smooth a pad gently over cleansed skin—just make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30, in the morning, as alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity.
If there’s ever an excuse to splurge a bit, it’s your wedding day! So, go ahead and treat yourself to a spa day beforehand. If you’re strapped for time leading up to the event, try an at-home mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Treatment Mask, which is formulated with three types of clay (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava) and enhanced with charcoal to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off. Use three times a week for best results.
The last thing you want is for your eye area to look drab on your wedding day, right? So, add an eye cream to your daily skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream helps diminish the look of dark circles, under-eye bags, and crow’s feet with continued use over time, while also helping to make the eye appear more radiant. After cleansing morning and night, apply a small amount around your entire eye area using your fingertips and pat in gently until thoroughly absorbed.
Exfoliation is the process of sloughing dead skin cells off the surface of your skin—it is a great idea to incorporate this into your regular skin care routine since this buildup can lead to dullness. Reach for a facial scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Facial Scrub, which gently exfoliates dull, dead skin cells and removes all traces of oil, dirt and, and makeup. Don’t forget about the skin below your jawline, though! In the shower, gently massage a scrub in circular motions over your body, paying particular attention to areas that tend to be on the dry side, like your knees, elbows, and feet.
Your skin care routine isn’t complete without moisture. Apply your face lotion of choice to damp skin to help lock in hydration. Choose one that suits your skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Dry, flaky lips just won’t do when it’s time to say “I do.” Use a lip scrub to help exfoliate dead skin cells on the surface of your lips, and follow up with a hydrating lip balm. This will help ensure your lipstick goes on smoothly—which is what you want when you go in for that first kiss.
