If you’ve booked your wedding for 2018, you probably think you’ve got ages before you need to start worrying about your skincare routine, hair and makeup or losing weight. However, if you want to look amazing, without resorting to crash diets or expensive treatments, you need to start working on your look right now. Here’s what you need to do to ensure you look a million dollars on your big day.
Implement a Skincare Routine
Greasy, spotty or dry skin isn’t going to go away in a few weeks and if it does it will almost certainly come straight back. Skincare doesn’t require expensive products, in fact sometimes cheaper options may suit your skin type more. Test a few out and see what works for you but try to stick to the same brand to avoid exposing your skin to too many ingredients. All you need is a gentle cleanser, a weekly exfoliator, a day cream and a night cream. Then, just get into the habit of looking after your skin every day.
Crash diets rarely work and often lead to tiredness, fatigue, poor skin tone, depression and sometimes bloating, which can make you look bigger. Instead, start eating well and exercising now to make sure you are in fantastic shape for your wedding. This will also mean you are fitter, happier and have more energy to enjoy the occasion.
Target Problem Areas
Think about what kind of dress you want. Will it mean a part of your body you aren’t as keen on will be on show? If so, you’ve got a year to do something about it. Have a look online to find exercises to target and firm these areas.
Decide on a Hairstyle
You don’t need to know exactly what you want just yet, but some general ideas will help. If your hair is short, you’ve got a year to grow it. You’ve also got a year to get it the colour you want. Stylists recommend never changing more than two shades at a time to ensure the colour is even and natural. Have a chat with your hairdresser about the kind of wedding hair you’ve got in mind and what you need to do now to get it there.
Visit the Dentist
Many people visit the Perfect Smile Spa while they are engaged. Your teeth really stand out in your wedding photos, so you don’t want to be looking back in years to come thinking “I wish my teeth looked better”. Cosmetic dentistry has evolved so much in the last few years. So, whether you want your teeth straightening, whitened or just cleaned and polished, make your first appointment soon so the dentist can devise a treatment plan.
Your wedding day will be the best day of your life. However, the few weeks before can be incredibly stressful and tiring. Starting to prepare now means you’ll have much less to worry about in the run-up and will be able to enjoy the mounting excitement so much more. Good luck.
