Skincare heroes: Get the glow for your Wedding Day
Don’t leave it too late to think about your skin – the longer you have to figure out what works to help you get that beautiful bridal glow, the better. All great make up starts with good skin and a smooth canvas.
Now, with the date marked in the diary focus some time on yourself. Before your wedding (depending on your budget) you should schedule in regular facials to make sure that your skin is used to the process before your wedding day.
This is also the perfect time to really perfect your cleansing routine - this is essential. With the stress of wedding planning, looking after yourself could be easily demoted but your skin won’t thank you. Follow our steps below for suggestions for your routine, but visit your nearest Lancôme counter or take recommendations from your beauty therapist for personalised products for your skin type.
For a thorough cleanse, we recommend a Clarisonic cleansing brush to remove up to 6 times more dirt than hands alone*. Pair this with a cleanser that really addresses your skin type (although a foaming cleanser will work best to build lather) or depending on your skin care preference. Start using the Clarisonic at least once daily (don’t worry, its gentle enough) to remove the dirt, oil and make-up that otherwise comes between you and great skin. By cleansing efficiently with Clarisonic it can help your other skincare products to absorb better, making it worth the investment! Follow with a toner to rebalance and set the skin for your serum and moisturizer.
For your skin to look its best, it’s essential to hydrate. Advanced Génifique serum adds a boost of radiance. On the day itself, it can be patted over your make up to refresh and rejuvenate the look of your skin. Follow serum with your favourite Lancôme moisturiser.
To maintain the glow and maximize results, exfoliate weekly with Exfoliance Confort to remove dead skin cells which often build up and leave skin leaving looking dull. Once you’ve found that perfect routine, be consistent.
The week before the wedding take some time out for you and your bridal party. Get everyone together and whether it be at home or at a spa, have the pamper you truly deserve. Indulge with a face mask and a glass of fizz - try Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Sheet Mask to give your skin more instant radiance. Your skin will feel refreshed, smoother and beautifully glowing.
On the big day, don’t panic. Your skin by now will be looking great so relax and enjoy yourself!
