Looking perfect on your Big Day is usually the result of months of preparation and planning, which includes following a healthy diet and developing an effective skin care regime. However, these activities can sometimes take a back burner as you try and concentrate on the more pressing ones.

Not only do you have to find the right wedding gown, locate a good hairdresser, track down a good makeup artist and generally decide on a look that will work for you, you have to find a way to tie all these together so that everything goes smoothly on your wedding day.

Fortunately, achieving a glowing skin in time for your wedding need not be a difficult undertaking. Beginning in good time and using a few effective strategies will help you achieve a healthy glow and ultimately contribute to you looking your best when your wedding finally rolls around.

Below are a few skin care tips you can use to achieve radiant skin on your Big Day:

Nutritional experts recommend drinking 8-10 glasses of water on a daily basis.

The reasons? Water has been shown to plump up subcutaneous skin cells, improve the appearance of wrinkles, and ultimately improve the elasticity of your skin. Further, water helps to flush out toxins that may lead to skin breakouts, resulting in clearer, healthier looking skin that will definitely give you that glow you are looking for on your wedding day.

  1. Professional facials

Facials at home are all very well for your regular skin care routine, helping you look after your skin affordably and from the comfort of your home.

However, as the wedding day approaches, you will have to bring in the big guns and invest in some professional skin care help. Scheduling a few professional facials at regular intervals as you approach the wedding day will ensure that your skin looks great in time for the ceremony.

There are several reasons to get professional facials. First of all, you will have access to qualified and experienced aestheticians who can conduct a thorough analysis of your skin and determine the best skin care products to use. Secondly, procedures like deep steaming, exfoliations, extractions, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and the applications of a facial mask ensure thorough cleansing, and the complete removal of blackheads, whiteheads and other impurities. Finally, good aestheticians will be able to conduct all these processes gently and effectively, without breaking the skin and causing infections and scarring, which may mar your skin before the Big Day.

Even as you schedule those all-important professional facials, remember to kick your home skin care regime up a notch.

Invest in the best skin care products possible for your particular skin type, increase the frequency of your cleansing, toning and moisturizing activities, stay out of the sun as much as possible and invest in the right sun protection products.

However, ensure to limit your face washing activities as these may put your skin into overdrive and result in excessive oil production.

  1. Switch up your diet

Diet is the crucial component of a skin care routine for a bride. It goes without saying that watching your portions is crucial for fitting into your dream dress on the wedding day.

However, what you eat also has a major impact on the way your skin looks and can make the difference between a sallow, dull and pasty complexion, and a radiant, healthy looking skin.

The trick to achieving glowing skin via diet is to stick to anti-inflammatory foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, oily fish like salmon and halibut, nuts and seeds and a good dose of healthy oils such as olive and coconut oils. Avoid refined foods, sugary drinks and excessive alcohol. Enjoy drinks that are full of anti-oxidants such as green tea and ensure to get the recommended amount of water.

  1. Exercise

Exercise is a great way to get glowing skin for your wedding. When you work out, blood pumps faster through your body, which allows oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to your body cells quicker. This further helps to carry waste products away from your skin faster, in addition to facilitating better working of the liver which helps with detoxification. Working up a sweat at least 30 minutes three times weekly should help you achieve the results you are looking for.

Achieving glowing skin in time for your wedding is entirely possible. By starting early and ensuring you follow a few essential tips, you should be able to get your skin in tip top condition by the time the Big Day rolls around.
