If you’re getting married this winter but haven’t had time to develop a beauty routine, no worries! Follow these three steps, and you’ll be on your way to looking and feeling great just in time to say, “I do,” at your winter wedding.
Invest in a good moisturizer
If you want your makeup to look flawless on your wedding day, you’ve got to start with a well-hydrated face. The winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin. It’s crucial to do some research and invest in a really good facial moisturizer. The one you select will vary based on your skin type, but keep in mind that even if you’re prone to oily skin, it’s still necessary to moisturize properly. In addition to your face, taking the time to moisturize your entire body is necessary if you want healthy, hydrated skin. For best results, apply moisturizer immediately after bathing. This is the best time to lock in the moisture before it evaporates.
Stick with what you know
While it can be fun to try new things, avoid experimenting with any new products or procedures in the days leading up to your wedding. If you’re curious about a self-tanner or a microdermabrasion treatment, hold off until after your wedding day as it is impossible to predict how your body will react. However, if you’re looking for a fabulous wedding day glow, you may want to consider seeking the help of a professional. There are many spray tan services available, and some that will spray you in the privacy of your own home! Leaving it to a professional allows you to sit back, relax, and actually end up the shade you want to be on your wedding day.
Take your vitamins
During the winter, our immune systems tend to suffer. Taking a daily supplement packed with vitamin C, zinc, and echinacea help support a healthy immune system and can be us less susceptible to whatever sickness may be going around. Many women report having trouble maintaining their mane during the winter months. The dry, cold air can cause brittle hair which leads to fall out. Consider taking a biotin gummy daily if you want those locks to look extra thick on your wedding day.
Bonus tip: If your groom needs a little boost in the hair department, Finasteride is a great solution to not only promote hair growth but also to slow down any hair loss.
Planning a wedding can be exhausting no matter what time of year, but let’s face it, in the winter it’s dark and cold and we’re tired! It’s recommended adults get between six and 10 hours of sleep per night so try to shoot for a number somewhere in between. Lack of sleep not only leaves us with bags under our eyes, but also negates brain function, negatively affects our complexions and can cause irritability.
Winter is one of the most beautiful backdrops for a wedding and you want to enjoy every moment of your special day. Adhere to these simple steps and you’ll be on your way to looking and feeling your best at your winter wedding.
