As temperatures warm up for spring, countless couples prepare to walk down the aisle. Whether you’re the one getting married or you're a guest, going to a wedding is a great opportunity to showcase your skin looking its clearest and healthiest. Keeping all of the camera flashes and videos in mind, these tips will get your skin in tip-top shape before anyone utters ‘I do!'
Dull complexion It’s actually quite easy to rid yourself of a dull complexion. Men and women sometimes think that simply doing the bare minimum of cleansing and moisturizing is enough, but to truly give the dead skin cells on your face a reason to pack up and leave you should consider giving exfoliation a try. This is especially important for soon-to-be brides and grooms who want to look their most luminous and fresh-faced on the special day. Exfoliating just a couple times per week can make a big difference if dullness is your concern. Scrubs: Take a look at our Kiwi Face Scrub, Strawberry Face Scrub and Almond & Honey Face Scrub. If you’re acne prone and experiencing breakouts, it’s better to try a chemical exfoliant like our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, once or twice per week if you’re on the DRY side and two to three times per week for OILY skin types.
Clogged pores If blackheads feel like the bane of your existence, you’re not alone. Caused by a combination of dead skin cells and oil reacting with the air, blackheads, or comedones, can inhibit an otherwise beautiful complexion by causing sometimes noticeably clogged pores. To help counteract this, consider using a clarifying mask like our Flower & Tonic Mask on a weekly basis in addition to exfoliating regularly to help with pore congestion. For stubborn blackheads, or for complexions with blackheads all over, we recommend Silver Powder.
Tired eyes Check those bags at the door! One of the best ways to counteract the effects of sleepy under-eyes that are puffy and tired-looking, is to turn to a high quality eye cream. Our Ceramide Eye Gel features soothing ingredients for ALL skin types, and it can be worn both day and night.
Bonus: If your under-eye area craves a cooling sensation, you can put this eye gel in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Puffy eyes, be gone!
Chapped lips Smooches in your future? You’ll want to keep your lips soft and smooth from ceremony to reception. Whether you’re a stick person or a jar person (see our adorable post on this topic), make sure to have a lip balm on at all times. Eye & Lip Sunscreen is also important at outdoor weddings.
