Now that you’re back from the honeymoon, after months of pampering your skin into shape for the big day, you don’t want your investment into your beautiful complexion to fade. Now that the pre-wedding stress and madness is over, maintaining your radiant glow is not as easy as it may seem.
To keep others marveling at your skin, we have some suggestions for after your nuptial bliss.
Go Easy on the Makeup
Chances are that you’ve used a lot of makeup in the weeks and days leading up to your wedding. After a string of makeup-requiring festivities like rehearsal party, bachelorette outing, and the wedding day itself, now is the time to give your skin a break. Try just a small amount of foundation in your daily moisturizer and apply it to your face and neck. This trick will provide you with an even finish while minimizing the amount of product you’re using. You can always finish with a little powder for a more done look.
Catch Up on Your Sleep
With the excitement of your wedding and maybe even an exhausting honeymoon trip, sleep may seem hard to come by. Yes, you look lovely with the help of your wedding dress and the talent of your makeup artist, but she’s not on retainer, and the dress will eventually come off. As soon as you can, get some sleep. Whether it’s on the plane, while you’re away, or once you get back, prioritize sleep as much as possible. This rest will ensure you look your best for the honeymoon and beyond.
A good practice to keep your skin soft, smooth, and rejuvenated is to hydrate from both the inside and outside. You should drink plenty of water or other liquids like herbal teas, detox water, and tender coconut. Not doing so will lead to skin health issues like dullness, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Don’t worry about so many trips to the ladies room, that’s just your body extracting toxins that harm your skin and overall health. Choosing an excellent moisturizer to apply to your skin daily will further help maintain fullness and smooth skin.
Protect with Sunscreen
With most weddings happening in the warmer months, it’s best to make sure you protect your skin with a medical-grade, mineral-based sunscreen. SPF 30 or higher is recommended to ensure your skin doesn’t get too dry and flaky. Irrespective of the weather, a good coat of sunscreen will ensure your skin stays hydrated for the entire day. Regular use will leave your skin with even texture and tone.
