8 Bridal Skincare Tips for Wedding Day Radiance
If you’re anything like all the other brides out there, you’ll no doubt want glowing skin for your wedding day. For the walk down the aisle, for saying “I do”, and for all those wedding snaps, you want every inch of you beaming for the big day.
Wedding makeup can only do so much. To prep your skin for your special day and get that sought after bridal glow, try these wedding skincare tips to get your best skin for the best day of your life.
#1: Hydrate — Inside + Out
Hydration is essential for getting that dewy bridal glow. Start drinking more water (at least 8 glasses a day) to hydrate from the inside, and invest in a nourishing moisturizer to hydrate from the outside. It’s worth incorporating other moisturizing skincare products in your daily beauty routine to get radiant skin. And don’t just stop at your neck. Moisturize your entire body so that you’re smooth all over. After all, it won’t just be your face on display.
Try Rainbow’s Hydrate Bundle. It features a face mask and serum made with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and jojoba oil to plump, hydrate, and brighten while preventing hyperpigmentation and dryness. Include these products in your daily skincare routine so that your skin is ready for your big day.
#2: Exfoliate (All Over)
Exfoliation buffs away dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, revealing your freshest, most radiant skin. It also helps slough away dry skin and rough patches to leave you feeling super soft all over. Alongside this, regular exfoliation can fade the appearance of dark spots and discoloration, while improving skin tone and preventing breakouts. Because no bride wants pimples on her special day.
For the face, use a chemical exfoliant like Rainbow’s Glow Serum. It’s formulated with resurfacing glycolic acid and brightening bakuchiol to buff away blemishes and dullness. Don’t forget the rest of your body, too. Opt for a gentle body scrub to sweep away dead, dull skin, and reveal your brightest body. In addition to leaving skin smoother and brighter, regular exfoliation enables other skincare products in your routine to absorb better — and work harder.
#3: Treat Skin Concerns
Whether you’re dealing with blemishes, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines and wrinkles, now’s the time to start addressing your skin concerns. Book an appointment with a dermatologist for the best treatment options.
Alternatively, look for topical treatments that specifically target your skin complaints. Rainbow’s Tighten Serum, for instance, is the best for smoothing out creases while boosting skin’s firmness for a youthful, glowing complexion. Brides-to-be will love it!
If you’re showing signs of a skin condition like eczema or rosacea, book an appointment with a dermatologist for the appropriate treatment. In some cases, you may not be able to cure the condition, but you can certainly manage it.
#4: Make Time for Masks
All that wedding planning has no doubt been chaotic — and stress can wreak havoc on your skin. Unwind with a bubble bath and a face mask to relieve stress, check back in with yourself, and give your skin the ultimate glow up. You don’t need to visit a facialist to get a good facial. You can do it at home with one of our nourishing face masks.
Try Rainbow’s Glow Mask to remove the buildup of dirt and dead skin and unveil your bridal glow. It’s suitable for all skin types, although sensitive skin types should use it no more than once a week to prevent irritation. You’ll find many more face and body masks on our online store, depending on what effect you’re seeking.
#5: Skip DIY Treatments
While some DIY treatments might be beneficial for the skin, they can be irritating to the skin — especially if you already have sensitive skin. It’s better to stick to regular, store-bought beauty products to prevent irritating your skin and ending up red, sore, and flaky on your special day. Don’t experiment before the big day, otherwise you could end up experiencing some undesirable effects.
#6: Invest in a Vitamin C Serum
If you’re looking for a quick glow up, try a vitamin C serum. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that brightens the skin, fends off free radicals, and fades discoloration. It also helps your sunscreen work harder by protecting skin against free radical damage.
Try Rainbow’s Smooth Serum, a silky formula of vitamin C and vegan collagen to plump out fine lines, even out skin tone, and brighten skin. It’s a bridal skincare essential.
#7: Start Using an Eye Cream
Whether you’re dealing with dark circles, puffiness, or neither, an eye cream can transform your under eye area so you have bright and sparkly peepers on your special day. Start using an eye cream daily up until your wedding day to resolve any issues you might have, like bags or dark circles.
Of course, a good makeup artist can alleviate these issues for you with a quality concealer, but it’s always good to start with a great base. This way, your makeup will glide on seamlessly, and you’ll look great the next morning — and on your honeymoon.
#8: Give Yourself a Facial Massage
A facial massage is easy to do and so effective for getting the blood circulation going for improved brightness and glow. To do it, use a facial oil or serum, and massage the face and neck using swift sweeps. If you have time, you could also book in for a professional facial massage. However, it’s perfectly doable from the comfort of your own home.
Try doing it on your wedding day too for an instant glow fix. It works wonders for your complexion!
Start implementing these bridal beauty tips today, and become your glowiest version on your big day. Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure too, or do it yourself at home.
Above all, make sure you’re following a solid skincare routine to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. It takes around 4-6 weeks to see the full results of a skincare routine, so the sooner you start, the sooner you will see results.
