Winter is fast becoming one of the most popular seasons to say ‘I Do’ and we can certainly see why. Cosy, rustic vibes, stunning photograph backdrops and of course, a sprinkling of festive magic. However, along with its advantages winter weddings do also come with a few disadvantages – mainly with regards to bridal beauty.
The season is renowned for wreaking havoc with your skin and can leave it looking unloved. Not something you want on the most important day of your life, right? Don’t fret! We’re here to offer you our best hints and tips to ensure you have glowing skin in the lead up and on the day of your winter wedding. So, get clued up with our ultimate winter skincare tips for brides…
Washing Your Face
As tempting as it may be, try not to wash your face in hot water. It will dry your skin out and pose the risk of dehydrated, flaking skin. Instead, opt for warm water and lots of moisturiser! Your skin will thank you, trust us.
Time To Invest
It’s important that you invest in a decent moisturiser. If you forget everything else, this will help to salvage your skin during the colder season. If you can, choose a moisturiser that also has an in-built SPF.
It’s not just your skin that needs to be moisturised, you’ll need to buy a good lip balm too. Keep one handy at all times and choose a product that contains natural remedies, such as honey.
Keep It Natural
We recommend using products that aren’t packed with harsh chemicals and perfumes. Swap them for natural, cruelty-free products that are kind to the environment and your skin.
Often overlooked, water can help to save an array of skin problems. Drinking plenty of water will ensure your skin stays hydrated and healthy.
Say goodbye to sugary, processed foods and try to incorporate omega fatty acids into your diet. Foods such as avocado and nuts are packed full of goodness, all of which help to restore the skin barriers. The result? Radiant skin on your wedding day.
Get A Facial
Take some time out of wedding planning for a pamper and treat yourself to a facial. Regular facials help to rebalance the skin’s natural oils and cleanse the surface.
