A key tip to good skin is hydration.  No matter what your skin type, be it oily, dry, normal or combo it craves water.  Drinking lots of water throughout the months prior to the wedding to keep you hydrated is very important.  It will help to flush out toxins from the body and skin giving you a natural radiant glow.  Make Up also tends to sit much better on your skin if it is well hydrated.

This all goes hand and hand with eating fresh healthy foods too that are naturally hydrating.  Foods that contain a high percentage of water such as watermelon, cucumber, grapefruit, tomatoes are good.  Other great foods known for aiding repair and promoting healthy skin and hair are fish, coconut water, avocados, eggs, garlic, nuts and seeds - these foods are all packed with vitamins, Omega-3 and ‘good-fats’ which your body needs.

Foods and drinks to avoid are the obvious - greasy fast foods, processed foods, sugary fizzy drinks and alcohol!  That last one may be tough, especially with a Hen Do planned to celebrate your last few weeks of freedom!  Try to drink moderately and always drink lots of water alongside to stay as hydrated as possible.  (According to Los Angeles’ Dr Lancer, Dermatologist to Kim Kardashian & Victoria Beckham, it can take up to 30 days for your skin to recover from a hangover!!)
Professional facials are another fantastic way of refreshing your skin and also good idea to help lower the wedding stress giving yourself a bit of pampering. It is best to have a course of these leading up to the big day to really see the benefits, start them a few months prior incase of any adverse skin reactions.
Removing all make up at the end of each day to ensure your skin can breath, along with cleansing and using a good moisturiser right for your skin type with a good SPF protection is also important.  

Remember if you want to change your daily skin regime, do this months in advance of your wedding incase of any initial outbreaks.

We believe following this advice will give you the best chance to look radiant and glowing for the most important day of your life.  However, even if you stick to the cleanest diet, the best hydration & healthiest lifestyle, it is inevitable  you may feel a little stress on the run up to your wedding day - if this should cause a break out or pimple - please do not worry and do not touch it we will take care of it!
