Wedding Skincare Timeline

Getting your skin in shape for your wedding requires far more than just slapping on some makeup on the big day. Fresh and glowing skin takes months of preparation. Follow our easy-to-use timeline to plan accordingly.

One Year Before Wedding:

Start a Skincare Regimen If you don’t already, make sure you regularly wash and exfoliate your skin.

Drink Up! Make sure you drink eight glasses of water per day - every day! It will keep you hydrated and your skin will look fresh and gorgeous.

Makeup Trial Use WeddingWire’s Vendor Reviews to find a makeup artist near you. Then, schedule a trial to see his/her work first hand. Discuss how you’d like to look on your wedding day and experiment with different styles. Make sure you click with the makeup artist before hiring.

A Few Months Before Wedding

Get Facials Start visiting a local spa or aesthetician for once-a-month facials. These will help clean your pores and rejuvenate your skin.

Be Careful in the Sun Always wear sunscreen - whether it’s a sunny day or not! It will keep your skin healthy for years to come.

The Week Before Wedding

Eyebrow Waxing Make sure you schedule your eyebrow grooming for at least a week before your wedding. Skin can get irritated from waxing, so make sure yours has time to heal.

Spray Tan Similarly, schedule your spray tan for a few days before your wedding - not the day before in case of any unexpected results. Exfoliate before the spray tan so the results are applied evenly.

The Night Before

Wash Off Your Makeup Even if you partied hard at your rehearsal dinner, make sure you wash your face before you go to bed. You’ll want to start with a clean slate in the morning!
