I've been making sure I drink a ton of water, using an eye cream that I legit just found in my junk drawer, washing my face morning and night, and using a day/night cream. Also taking biotin with my daily vitamins. My skin has actually looked really good recently, so I'm happy with were im heading lol
I've been trying to stick to a good routine morning and night, I still have until September. I did read not to change products or start anything new within a month of the wedding. I'm planning on getting my eyebrows done 2-3 days before, nails done the day before, and a quick hair trim about a month out. I don't color my hair or anything so I don't have advice for that!
I have till September to fully decide on everything but I have been experimenting with things a little earlier like whitening strips, face masks, and some of the hair and nail type vitamins to see if those will actually work for me. I'll be having my hair cut and colored 3 days before and possibly add in extensions. Also having my brows tinted and waxed then as well. I have an amazing hair stylist so I have no issue doing all this a few days before. I'm debating on having my nails done but if I do it'll be 2 days before. I don't want to do anything the day before as we will be getting our reception venue set up and will be heading to our ceremony venue the day before as well.
Heard stem cell vitamins are great for skin. I will probably start taking it from about 3 months away. Oir wedding is in July, it's time for me to get started on a mini diet (greatly reduced sugar, alcohol and bread as floury stuff except for flat breads tend to make me feel bloated.
Develop a good, consistent routine for your skin type. I'd start now since your wedding is coming up quickly. Mornings - Cleanser & Toner & Moisturizer & Eye Cream. Evenings - Cleanser & Toner & Moisturizer. You can add in things like serums, oil cleansers for a double cleanse, masks, exfoliates, vitamins, professional treatments, etc. but those are really based more on your skin type than anything. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase & drinking a TON of water is always great for skin! Staying moisturized is good too with a good moisturizing body wash, a body scrub every once in awhile, a body lotion, cuticle oil, etc.
The month of our wedding I did botox, an Oxygen Facial, dermaplanning and a body scrub. I got my nails done (acrylic nails, shellac toenails). I'm not a fan of waxing but if you do want to, do it a few days before. I bed tanned, not spray tan.
Teeth whitening a month or so before. A facial around the same time (my skin always seems to break out after a facial and I want to have plenty of time for that to clear up if it happens). Getting my eyebrows re-microbladed 3 months before. And considering eyelash extensions a few days before the wedding (so I can go on my honeymoon afterwards and not have to deal with mascara). Probably get powder dip nails a day or two before also. Hair trim/color refresh about 2 weeks before.
Other than that, just my normal skin care routine - face wash, moisturizer, eye cream, body lotion & KP cream, etc.
I got my hair highlighted/trimmed 3 weeks before the wedding. I did a facial/eye brow wax 2 weeks before. Great for decreasing stress too!! My makeup team said it's good to get any waxing done 2 weeks prior so your skin can heal before using the makeup. Other than that, finished my teeth whitening kit, had plenty of water and sleep!
