Do you want your skin to naturally glow on your wedding day? The truth is, healthy and glowing skin can be the best jewelry you can ever wear - not only on your big day. And whether your big day is as far as a few months from now - or as soon as a week from tomorrow - it's time to learn the best tricks in making your skin flawless and aisle-ready.
So, how do you get a beautiful skin on your wedding day without the need for tons of makeup?
1. Know Your Skin Type and Tailor to it
The first thing you need if you want flawlessly glowing skin is to know your skin type. Determine if your skin is normal, oily, dry or a combination. If you don't know this by now, you should definitely take this quiz and see what type of skin you have. And, why is this important?
Well, it will help you in the selection of products and remedies before your special day.
2. Know That Great Skin Comes from Your Plate
Try to eliminate as many processed foods as possible at least two weeks before your big day. The truth is, your skin is the mirror of your eating habits. A lot of nutritionists agree that eating three servings of fruit and five servings of vegetables daily improves the health and look of the skin - just like cutting down foods filled with caffeine, sugar, red meats and greasy foods.
3. ...And the Amount of Water You Drink
A clear and beautiful skin is a hydrated one. That is why aside from washing your face with a good cleanser every day and every night before bed as a routine - you should also drink plenty of water and constantly be hydrated.
The truth is, drinking an adequate amount of water will ensure that your organisms properly digest, absorb, and even excretes the foods you eat - but also that your blood circulates everywhere throughout your body.
After all, our skin is 64% water - and will definitely thank you and glow in its natural light.
4. Invest in A Cleanser, Toner, and Moisturizer that Suits Your Skin Type
Once you learn your skin type, make sure to invest in the appropriate products for your skin. Our beauty expert, LaTonya suggests Limelight by Alcone's Dream Clean Cleanser for normal to oily or acne prone skin types and Calm Balm Moisturizer.For normal to dry skin types, she recommends Limelight by Alcone's Quench Cleanse Cleanser and Skin Therapist for moisture.
"I recommend LimeLight by Alcone because the products are phthalate free paraben free, chemical free, and cruelty-free," says LaTonya. "The products are proven to leave the skin healthy, refreshed, and ready for a flawless makeup application."
5. Buy an SPF 15+ Sunscreen for Daily Use
A sunscreen with no fragrance or oil is the best way to fight the overly tanned (or red) skin on your wedding day, especially if it is set out in a tropical location. All you need to do is get a sunscreen from a reputable brand that once again tailors to your skin type, blocks the UV rays and prevents skin damage and cancer.
6. Use an Eye Cream with a Light Diffuser
Eye circles are one of the worst enemies of brides all around the globe. The worst thing about them is the fact that they are hereditary - which means that the only way to reduce their appearance before your wedding is with makeup. Make sure to start with an eye cream that has light diffusers and would reflect light to make the eye look brighter. Then, use concealer only on the dark spots and always use one that matches your skin tone and type.
7. Get to Know What Kind of Makeup Helps Your Skin Type
Make sure to get a good idea of the best makeup styles for your big day - and see which one of them is best for accenting the natural side of your skin. After all, weddings include a lot of dancing and a lot of hours spent in a single location - so make sure to choose a makeup style that is able to handle this routine.
