Of course it is hard not to get stressed and to ensure you have adequate sleep in the run up to your wedding, but these are the biggest triggers of breakouts, so try to get at least eight hours of sleep a night. Of course maintaining a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle will contribute to you having glowing skin and can help to de-stress you. It goes without saying that drinking plenty of water will keep your skin hydrated and clear from blemishes.

When your skin is dehydrated, make-up especially liquid products such as foundation will just sink into your skin but if you have hydrated skin your make-up will stay on the top layer of your skin meaning it will stay looking fresh all day, you are less likely to break out and your make-up artist will thank you for making their job that little bit easier! Book yourself a course of monthly facials leading up to the wedding, even if you’re at home skincare regime is on point it is good to get a facial peel and deep tissue cleansing. This is also your chance for a bit of pampering and to catch up on some sleep!

Everyone has this idea that make-up is bad for you and you are bound to breakout with all the make-up you’ll be wearing during your wedding week, this is not true. Make-up is not exactly good for you, heavy foundations do cause your pores to become congested which lead to breakouts but it is all about control. First of all if you do wear foundation every day think about switching over to a BB cream or tinted moisturiser. This way you still get good coverage but are allowing your skin to breathe, these products will usually have the added benefit of a SPF as well. Benefit’s Big Easy BB cream is really good at evening out your skin-tone, giving you the coverage you need. It also has a liquid to powder finish and self-adjusts to your skin tone which cuts out another layer of make-up for you. Whether you are using a BB cream or foundation, using a primer after moisturiser adds a barrier between your skin and your make-up as well as adding to the longevity of your make-up.

During your wedding week be sure to properly remove all your make-up after each event with a few cleansing wipes and washing your face with a cleanser. Stick to your skincare routine that you have been doing in the run up to this week and try a good mud mask for ten minutes whenever you get a chance, the Glamglow mud mask says it all, giving you that glamorous glow.

The final tip would be to exfoliate your lips, this will give you smooth lips and make your lipstick last a lot longer on the big day. Of course your biggest tool to a healthy radiant glow from within is your smile. If you are happy on the inside it will show so be sure to enjoy every moment of your planning and along with the above tips you are on your way to perfect skin for your wedding.
