Aysha's Official Guide to Prepping Your Skin for Your Wedding

Aysha's Official Guide to Prepping Your Skin for Your Wedding

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! At your wedding you’ll take center stage so you’ll want to ensure your skin is in top form.

Whether your wedding day is next year or in a few months, the time to begin preparing your skin is now.

Put your best face forward

On your wedding day, your face will glow with health and vitality; however, you’ll also want to revitalise and restore your entire decolletage. I always tell patients who come into the office for treatment that their facial skin goes from the top of their foreheads all the way down to their nipples. Unfortunately, most people apply masks and serums to just their faces and don’t extend the treatment downward. Although you may not see breakouts here, the skin on your neck and chest often experiences the same redness and irritation the face does. As a result, you’ll need to apply active ingredients to the skin in this area just as you would your face.

Wedding essentials for glowing skin

Add these skincare products to your routine for a healthy complexion on your big day and beyond.

Cleanse

Start with a great cleanser to remove dirt, debris, and other impurities. Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser is ideal for all skin types, especially those with sensitive skin. It’s free of common irritants found in skin care products and instead delivers powerful antioxidants to heal the skin. Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser is a concentrated cleanser that soothes the skin and boosts circulation. It’s ideal for normal to oily skin and can even be left on the skin for extra deep cleaning and exfoliation. Purity Solution Deep Cleansing Oil removes excess oil, makeup, and environmental impurities from deep down in the pores. It contains healing Argan, Moringa, and Olive oils to nourish and heal the skin at the cellular level. Use it when you double cleanse.

Serum

Your skincare routine is not complete without a powerful serum. Cell ID Growth Factor Serum contains growth factors, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants to nourish and repair your skin. It improves skin’s texture and address the signs of premature aging. It’ll renew and restore your complexion. Opti-Crystal Eye Serum heals the sensitive skin around the eyes while camouflaging under-eye circles with liquid crystals. It contains coconut extract and copper complex as well as alpha lipoid acid to build and repair healthy under-eye skin.

Hydrate

Thirsty skin needs deep hydration. Rescue+ Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask is a concentrated all-natural balm that contains willow herb, shea butter, and cherry extracts. It soothes irritation and delivers powerful healing antioxidants into the deeper layers of the skin. It’s ideal to use post-treatment to accelerate the healing process or as a mask for extra hydration and nourishment. For lighter hydration, Mystic Hydrating Treatment offers non-greasy moisture to all skin types. It’s ideal for oily or acne-prone skin as it is lighter than traditional moisturiser and doesn’t compromise the skin’s natural barrier function. Spray it on the face whenever you feel dryness and use it to rehydrate mineral makeup on your big day.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is vital to healthy cellular renewal. Mix Pure C Mixing Crystals with your favourite moisturisers and serums to boost the potency of your products, especially those containing Vitamin A or Retinol. The mixing crystals contain 100% pure L-Ascorbic Acid in its most stable, crystalline form.

Skincare kits

Not sure which products to use? Try a kit. The Normal Skin 4-Piece Essential Kit contains 4 generous travel sizes of Benefit Clean cleanser, Affirm serum, Define AHA complex cream with Retinol and Emulsion moisturiser.   To address premature ageing, try the Age Defying Skin 4-Piece Essential Kit. It contains Benefit Clean cleanser, Cell ID serum, Serum 16 and Emulsion moisturiser.
