Below are a few things to consider when getting wedding day ready.


Set up an appointment with your dermatologist – Flawless skin should be one of your top priorities when it comes to wedding prep. We suggest you get a dermatologist in your corner to asses you skins current state as well as to devise a strategy to achieving that perfect wedding glow.


Skip the wine and get juicing – Wine is one of the most dehydrating substances around. If it is hard to cut out wine completely try cut back and substitute that Merlot with a leafy green smoothie. Green smoothies are great for our skin because it’s oxygenating and contains vital minerals to help stimulate the lymphatic system and drain out any puffiness.


Get into dry brushing – Dry-brushing has a lot of skin benefits, including exfoliation and increased blood circulation. So if you are not an active person, dry-brushing is a wonderful tool to get rid of body waste. Click here to read more on dry-brushing.


Skip mascara, try lash extensions – Afraid the waterproof mascara just won’t cut it on the big day? Consider lash extensions. Not only will your lashes look great on your wedding day but they will last into your honeymoon.


Invest in tooth whitening – If you want to amplify your smile, consider splurging on teeth whitening. These days a whitening treatment can for done in under a hour in the chair, you can whiten your teeth up to four to six shades and the results can last up to a year.


Sleep is everything – Sleep is important for so many reasons. We produce the highest amounts of natural human growth hormone while we sleep, which is responsible for regenerating and creating new cells in our body. Sleep also helps with relaxation which in turn combats stress. So don’t deprive yourself of sleep as it is vital for your health in general.


Start healthy eating and exercise now – Take up healthy eating habits up to a year before your wedding as crash diets and detox’s only provide for quick fixers which will only back fire in the long run. Stick to healthy full meals loaded with veg and protein. Along with exercise you will just watch the pounds drop. Incorporate healthy eating and exercise into your diet not only to slim down before your wedding day but to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A balanced diet and regular exercise is essential for overall well being and helps your body during stressful times like planning a wedding so this goes for you and your soon to be Mr.
