Wedding Prep Skin & Body Care Tips

wedding-prep-skinWedding day can be the most exciting yet stressful day of your life. There are tons of things to take care of and a lot of planning to do. One of the most important parts of wedding preparation is planning on how you want your body, skin and hair to look.

To achieve gorgeous hair and glowing skin on your wedding day, make sure to start pampering and taking care of your body at least three months before the wedding. It is crucial that you keep in mind the following:

1) Plan your diet ahead of time

Believe it or not, your diet has everything to do with the way your skin and your hair look and feel. If you have an unhealthy diet or eating habits, it is recommended that you slowly make changes to your diet at least 2-3 months before your wedding day. The reason is because your body needs time to adjust to the new healthy diet and detox itself. Don’t wait until the last few weeks and decide to go on a crash diet. You will not have enough energy and time to go through all the planning and events that tend to happen a couple weeks before your wedding. Crash diets can sometimes work against you as you will stress yourself out even more and your body does not usually get the right amount of nutrients it needs. After all, the goal is for you to look and feel your best on your special day

2) Choose super foods and good fat

While preparing for your diet, make sure to pick plenty of super foods, which are high in antioxidant content such as dark blue or purple grapes, blueberries, nuts, dark green veggies, green tea and beans. Antioxidant fruits and vegetables are also high in fiber so on top of the benefits they can bring to your skin, they can also help your feel full longer. You can try to pack them in small bags or containers as snacks while you are on the go.

In addition, you should slowly replace the unhealthy sources of fat such as animal fat, margarine, butter and fried food with a healthy source of fat that can be found in avocado, salmon, nuts and olive oil. You will begin to see many positive changes to your skin, hair and body.

3) Add supplements to your diet

It is just as important to add supplements to your diet as choosing the right food for your meals.

Many of the food we consume today have lost their nutrients. Supplements such as Dermera skin care vitamins can help to make sure that your skin receives the right amount of essential nutrients to maintain health and shine from the inside. It contains ingredients that are high in antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, E, and Co-Q10, which are known for reducing the damage and free radicals activities. It also has biotin, collagen, sodium hyaluronate, silica and resveratrol and MSM, which work to hydrate and firm the skin. Natural ingredients such as green tea and omega EPA/DHA also play a large role in promoting skin health by rejuvenating skin cells, eliminating free radicals and inflammation.

4) Be careful what you put on your skin and your hair

You should be extremely careful if you want to try out new products on your skin and your hair around the time of your special day. While shopping for beauty products to glam up for your special day, it can be very tempting to try out new beauty regimes and products that you see on the stores’ shelves. You should always remember to read the ingredients and know your skin/hair type. If you have sensitive or allergy-prone skin, it is very easy to get irritations and breakouts from products that are not meant for your skin.

Cosmetic allergies can leave marks and scars on your skin. The recovery process can take weeks or months so it is best not to risk the chance. This can add a lot more stress on what you already have to handle before the wedding.

5) Choose the right products for your hair

On your special day, you want to be able to show off your gorgeous and shiny hair and look beautiful from head to toe. Thus, picking the right products for your hair is just as important as it is for your skin.

Hair shampoos that are sulfate free are better for your hair and your skin. Why? Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (also known as SLS) is used to make your shampoo soapy and to reduce the greasiness of your hair. However, SLS has several disadvantages. It is responsible for irritating your scalp, causing acne around the hairline and creating a burning sensation if you accidentally get the shampoo in your eyes. As SLS also causes damage to your hair follicles, it prevents hair from growing long and healthy.

Exonerate Gentle Shampoo is one of those that do not contain SLS. With a light, refreshing scent, Exonerate Gentle Shampoo uses organically based emulsifiers with a base of Aloe Vera gel, which has a lot of healing and moisturizing properties. Aloe Vera is well known for its effectiveness in promoting hair growth and reducing dandruff. If your hair is already healthy, you can add Hydrate Conditioning Treatment after shampooing your hair to improve the health and the condition of your hair overtime.

If your hair is damaged because of environmental factors or chemical treatments, Rejuvenate Strengthening Protein Treatment can help to bring it back to life. It contains vitamins, protein and natural extracts that work to rebuild your hair structure, balance the pH of your hair and improve hair health naturally.

6) Get the sleep you deserve

Not getting enough sleep, besides causing tiredness and a lack of energy is one of the main causes of stress to your system. This stress can lead to irritation, inflammation, wrinkles and acne.

No matter how much work you have to face in the process of preparing for your wedding, you need to give your body the hours it deserves to rest (8 hours is recommended) and revitalize. When you are sleeping, your body is doing its best to rebalance. Quality sleep allows your skin to recover its moisture as well as promotes healthy cell growth which is essential for over- all health. When healthy cells are renewed during your sleep, your body has more ability and strength to fight free radicals, stress and all the signs of aging. As a bride-to-be who is under pressure to always look her best, getting enough sleep is probably the best thing you can do for yourself as you prepare for the eventful months & weeks before your wedding day.

As long as you plan well in advance to prepare your hair and skin for your wedding you should be fine.

By following these basic tips, you will be able to feel great about yourself from the inside out. With a healthy diet, proper products and sleep habits, you’ll be full of energy to celebrate your important day with your dear friends and family. Let your beauty shine while you are walking down that aisle!
