How to Get Perfect Skin For Your Wedding

4 Steps to Wedding-Perfect Skin

Whether your nuptials are impending or you have a big event coming up, there's nary a person who doesn't long to show off clear, radiant skin. "Preparing for your wedding day can feel like training for a marathon (or getting ready for a photo shoot) — hours of effort for just a few hours in the spotlight," says Suki Kramer, president and founder of Suki skin care. "But as any bride (or marathoner, or model) would attest, preparation is the key to any successful day, and every minute is worth it."

Well, check another box off on your wedding to-do list, then; Kramer is sharing her four-step skin care routine, which can begin several months out before the big day. Just keep reading for all the details.

  1. Exfoliate: Not only does exfoliating help to purify pores and stimulate collagen production, but it's also key for achieving a glowing complexion. "Repetition and habit is important too," explains Kramer, who recommends performing this step three times a week to have continually rejuvenated skin.
  2. Up the antioxidants: "Add antioxidant-rich foods and supplements to your diet, and look for them in your skin care products," Kramer advises. Berries and dark grapes, for instance, are rife with antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, and roses provide an incredible antioxidant boost as well. Try: rose water, rose essential oil, or rose hip seed oil for topical applications; and rose hips as supplements (like in tea).
  3. Now is not the time for adventure: "Everyone and everyone's skin is different, and products impact all of us differently." So in lieu of sampling a new face mask or spa treatment the night before the wedding, give yourself plenty of time to test it out.
  4. Do your facials at least a month before your special day: "Most people make the sad mistake of waiting until one week before their wedding to go for a facial," she warns. Facials, however, inherently cause redness and even inflammation. And while it's temporary, it's best to give the skin plenty of healing time. "Keep the detox-occurring days far away from the main event," Kramer says.
