You’ve planned everything from the dress, to the seating plan, right down the topping on your cake. But have you thought about your skin? With all eyes on you, it is important to start the beauty preparations early to ensure radiant, glowing skin on your wedding day.
Develop a treatment plan
When: 12 months out
An early skin assessment is the first step towards achieving perfect skin for your big day. We recommend visiting a dermal therapist at least 12 months out from “I do”, especially if you experience acne, pigmentation or redness. This will allow enough time to implement a treatment plan that will have your skin looking top-notch as you glide down the aisle. Australian Skin Clinics offer complimentary consultations to get you started.
Get silky-smooth skin
When: 6-9 months out
It is also the perfect time to begin a series of laser hair removal. Let’s face it, you’re busy enough in the months leading up to your wedding, let alone having to think about shaving, waxing and plucking! A series of laser hair removal will ensure that you are hair-free and care-free on your big day, so you can worry about more important things! Depending on your skin and hair type, laser hair removal usually takes between 6-12 treatments at monthly intervals for best results.
Perfect your pout
When: 6 months out
Dermal fillers have become a popular option for brides looking to enhance their natural radiance by adding volume and/or lift to facial areas. They can also be used to hydrate the skin and smooth fine lines, leaving you with a more refreshed appearance. If you are considering dermal fillers, it is best to visit your cosmetic injector around the six-month mark. This will allow plenty of time to learn what options are available to you, and make sure you don’t experience any adverse reactions (however, as dermal filler resembles the substances that occur naturally in the body the risk of allergic reaction is minimal).
Illuminate your skin
When: 3 months out
After all the stress of organising your big day, you deserve to indulge in a little pampering. Monthly High Performance Microdermabrasions from Australian Skin Clinics will help you relax while at the same time preparing your skin to look its absolute best. Sometimes referred to as derm or microderm (or microdermabrasion) this invigorating treatment gently removes the dead surface skin, unclogging your pores, leaving your skin clean, clear, bright and purified. It is also a great time to check back in with your dermal therapist to reassess your at-home skin care regime and adjust if needed.
Add the final touches
When: the week before
As the butterflies start to flutter, it can be easy to let your regular routine fall to the wayside. Make sure you follow your at-home skin care routine as prescribed by your dermal therapist and cleanse, boost, hydrate and protect your skin with active skin care products. This will help prevent any last minute breakouts or dryness.
For the final touch, drop by Australian Skin Clinics for a 20-minute Express Micro. This treatment will cleanse and exfoliate your skin, leaving you looking fresh and healthy for the big day.
Now you have a plan, it’s time to book in with your local Australian Skin Clinics and you’ll be glowing with confidence as you walk down the isle.
