Last Minute Pre-Wedding Beauty Tips You Should Never Forget


We know there is a lot going on right before your wedding, and that’s why understandably some details can slip through the cracks. However, do not fear. Whether you are opting for a look that is classic and traditional or wacky and retro, we have compiled a list of the top last-minute beauty tips to guarantee ultimate skin, hair and nail care.

Get Skin That Glows

In the week leading up to your wedding, you’re going to want to turn your attention to ensuring that your skin is both picture-ready and honeymoon-primed. This involves a couple of important steps. Firstly, get yourself booked in for a facial one week before your wedding: make sure that no products are used that you haven’t already tested, so you can be certain you won’t suffer any kind of reaction. Remember that this is also not the time for harsh treatments, such as chemical peels or extractions. Instead, opt for something soothing that will gently lift trapped dirt from your pores, soften lines and make your skin glow.

For honeymoon-ready soft skin, take a warm bath with Epsom salts: renowned for their endless uses and benefits, this natural remedy is known to soothe muscle pain and help relieve stress – a perfect antidote to the panic of wedding planning! Using the salts, exfoliate fully paying particular attention to dry patches that often build up around the elbows and knees. Do not be tempted to scrub too hard, rather be gentle and work in a circular motion. Following your soak, don’t forget to use a rich lotion all over to lock-in the moisture and keep your skin soft.

Show Your Hair That You Care

For many women, their hair is a defining feature that should be displayed to optimal effect at their wedding. In order to make sure that it is a picture of health come the big day, give your hair lavish attention on it in the months preceding. Use a deep conditioning mask once a month and choose your style in advance so you can shape the hair specifically for it. In order to promote healthy hair growth, fill your diet with plenty of B vitamins and natural oils.

If you are having a permanent color treatment, be certain that this is applied well in advance so the color has a chance to settle and the hair regain some moisture. In the week preceding the wedding, opt for one final trim so that every strand is perfect. If you want to keep your natural hair color but give it the wow factor, consider either getting highlights or lowlights. Easy-to-use semi-permanent color sets look great and are trendy, so be sure to get up to date with this. Semi-permanent color is readily available and offers a convenient and affordable solution to bringing the appearance of more volume and depth to thin hair.

Get the Perfect Nails

What’s the most anticipated moment of every wedding ceremony? The exchange of the rings. This means that every eye in the room is going to linger on your hands, so of course, you want them looking their best in-the-moment. The day before your wedding you are going to want to make sure you get a manicure. Most brides opt for a traditional nude tone or a French manicure, but this is entirely up to your own taste. Consider taking vitamin supplements, such as biotin, fish oil, and Vitamin E to promote healthy nail and cuticle growth, and try using a specialized moisturizer before bed every evening.
