Yes, I know its January. So why am I writing about bridal skin care now instead of June, the traditional wedding season? Its because pre-wedding skin treatments should begin now, so that your skin is ready before the actual wedding.
If you are having particular issues with your skin, this is the time to discuss them with an aesthetician, and develop a plan of action that meets your needs. If you are not currently under the care of an aesthetician, know that it takes a few months of regular treatments and proper home care to effectively address common skin care concerns. If you are currently receiving facials, discuss any concerns you have now with your aesthetician so that adjustments can be made in your treatments and home care regimen.
Skin doesn't stop at your face, as you'll no doubt discover when you try on a strapless dress, a gown with a lower neckline or even your honeymoon bikini. I've worked with brides who needed help with acne on the décolleté, upper arms or back; hyper pigmentation on elbows, knees and underarms; ingrown hairs at the bikini line or underarms. There are some conditions that respond well to proper skin care, and others that require a referral to a dermatologist.
If you're planning to wear makeup, its recommended to have trial runs for makeup, whether you are doing it yourself or using a professional makeup artist. Most makeup artists prefer that you have your skin in top condition before your makeup trial, because makeup sits better on skin that is smooth and clear.
Take the time to plan how you want your skin to look on your big day, and discuss this with your aesthetician today. I am always happy to consult with brides-to-be, so feel free to contact me at 917. 596. 9535 or firstname.lastname@example.org
