Wedding Ready Skin – Advice for the Bride-to-Be

There are few things in life more exciting than a wedding. Every bride-to-be wants her wedding day to be perfect from the gown to the reception. As we all know, a large part of wedding preparation is also looking your very best and many brides start to think about diet and beauty long before the big day. If you are a bride-to-be considering a cosmetic procedure, you might want to start early – a few weeks or months prior as some of the treatments may require a session or two to achieve desired results.

With a photographer and videographer memorializing your special day for eternity, many brides are concerned with their complexions and how they may look under the glare of bright lights, but with the right treatment and care, you can walk down the aisle – and shine your smile worry-free.

Many brides consider injectable neurotoxins like Botox to diminish the appearance of wrinkles as well as soft tissue fillers. However, for brides-to-be interested in a less invasive, less expensive and less risky option to restore a youthful glow on the biggest day of their lives, the good news is that recent advancements in skin care are able to replicate similar effects that had once only been possible with cosmetic surgery.

For example, Hydra Skin Sciences, a U.S-based company that recently launched the incredibly popular Allegro Anti-aging Cream and Brio Day & Night Serum is integrating snow algae powder into its anti-aging skin care line. Snow algae powder activates a longevity gene and the enzyme AMPK, which rejuvenates skin cells, reduces inflammation and water loss is reversed, and increases the production of collagen.  “Scientific research has conclusively shown Snow Algae Powder, six powerful peptides (including Matrixyl 3000, Argireline and Syn-Ake), Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acid can combine to have a tremendous effects on skin within just a few applications,” according to Leon Thompson, Chief Marketing Officer for Hydra Skin Sciences.

No matter what you choose before your big day, keeping skin clean, exercising and a keeping healthy diet will go a long way in helping you look your very best. Here are some tips that every bride should consider:

  • Cleanse your face twice a day – in the morning and at night
  • Make sure to wash off make-up before going to bed – not only will your bed sheets be free of make-up residue but make-up can irritate sensitive skin
  • Exercise regularly and eat right! (Avoid fatty foods and decadent desserts)
  • Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and your skin smooth and soft
  • Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen. Sunburn and its after effects will ruin your best laid plans for your skin and can cause a host of long-term problems – so make sure to cover up properly when in the sun.

Wedding-ready skin is easier than you think, so make the most of your special day with the beautiful skin you deserve!
