As your wedding day approaches, you will realize just how much you have on your plate. With the thoughts of the menu, flowers, drinks, music, and sitting arrangements, it can be difficult to keep track of another important aspect of wedding preparations – your own beauty routine. If you’re worried whether your beauty regimen will be able to keep up with the rest of your wedding preparations, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a list of things you should do if you want to start with your wedding beauty regimen in time to look your best on your big day:
Whiten your teeth
The pictures of your wedding day will be something you’ll be looking at for many years to come, and you want your smile to be perfect. In addition to picking the right lipstick, your teeth should look flawless as well. Because the food we eat can darken and stain our teeth, whitening your teeth is imperative. Because a great number of toothpastes already have whitening ingredients, you’d think it’s enough, but it’s not really the case. Whitening strips are a great addition to your teeth whitening process, but you could also consult a professional and get them professionally whitened. Try to do it at least six months before the wedding day, though, as your teeth will be more sensitive to hot and cold.
Start getting facials
If you want your face to glow and your skin to be smooth, you should start doing weekly exfoliations (you can choose physical or chemical) because this is the way to get a smooth “surface” that will make makeup application much easier. Because Australian sun is harsh and makes their skin dry and lines and wrinkles more prominent, Aussie women start with skin preparations at least six months before the wedding. If you have problems with fine lines around your eyes and mouth, hydrating serums that contain hyaluronic acid can help plump them up. You should apply such serums every day for months if you want the best results because you won’t be able to see the change overnight. Also, consult a professional and start getting monthly facials at least four months before the big day.
Get in shape
Looking good in a wedding dress is something all brides-to-be want, so dieting and working out are regular parts of the wedding regimen. Still, sometimes there just isn’t enough time to get the desired results, which is why Aussie women aren’t afraid to turn to professionals. In addition to liposuction and body sculpting, body contouring in Sydney is a great option because it’s not invasive. If your diets and workouts aren’t giving you desired results, you can always choose another treatment which will ensure that you look amazing in your wedding dress.
Schedule regular manicures
Ever since you got engaged and people started asking to see the ring, you probably keep your nails in great condition. Your nails and hands should look great and you should start getting regular manicures. This is also the best time to start experimenting with different colors and nail shapes so you can try out different styles and find something that works best for you. Your nail beds should be the ones that dictate the shape of your nails, and if you match the two perfectly, you’ll end up with a nice, elegant look of your hands and nails.
Drink more juices
Because Australian women are known for their laid-back attitudes, they like drinking a glass of wine every now and then. Still, as delicious as it is, wine also happens to be a dehydrator that will break your capillaries and “steal” the radiance from your skin. Cutting back on wine is a good idea as your wedding day approaches, and it might also be good to substitute it with something healthier like flavored water you can make yourself, or liquefied leafy greens. Healthy and delicious green juice is a great idea because it detoxes your skin and makes it radiant.
Everybody wants to look like the most beautiful version of themselves on their wedding day, which is why it’s important to start preparing early. There is no better way to ensure you’ll look flawless when walking down the aisle than by preparing months in advance. Keep in mind that beauty also comes from the inside, so if you’re happy and content, it will show in your smile, and you’ll be the most beautiful bride!
