Wedding season has begun, so it’s likely you have a few bridal showers, bachelorette parties and actual weddings to attend (maybe even your own!) At these wedding season events, there will be cameras all over snapping shots of the beautiful day, so you want your skin to stand out. Below are a few easy ways to prepare your skin for wedding season.

Start early. You don’t get wedding-ready skin in just a few days — it can take months for a skincare routine to start to work and for you to get the results you’re looking for. Do you research on your skin’s problem areas and concerns and then plan out which products you’ll use, how often you will apply them, and book out any appointments (such as a facial or hair removal) ahead of time.

Use the trifecta. A basic skincare regimen should consist of cleansing, toning and moisturizing, twice a day in the morning and at night. Cleansing works to remove all makeup and buildup from the day, toner works to balance the PH of your skin and prepare skin for your moisturizer, and then the moisturizing keeps your skin plump and hydrated.

Invest in a monthly facial. One facial a month can help fix any issues that other products aren’t. It’s also a nice, relaxing way to pamper yourself during the months leading up to the big day. Facials also take preparation and special techniques that, if done at home, can lead to irritation or scarring — yikes!
