Top beauty fixes for every bride-to-be

Posted in Skin Care Tips |

You don't have to be an impending royal to want every detail of your wedding to go over without a hitch. Even those of you who roll out of bed every morning and head out into the world without so much as a shower might find yourself transformed into a nitpicky perfectionist as your big day approaches, as this is one occasion where it totally makes sense to pay attention to your looks.

Many brides treat themselves to extra special beauty treatments to prepare for their weddings, and while we certainly wouldn't encourage anyone to travel down the Bridalplasty route, there are some tricks worth keeping up your sleeve.

1. Whitening your teeth. Yes, that camera will encapsulate your smile for years to come, and there's little to no harm in getting yourself started on a pack of strips a couple weeks before your wedding. If you've got the bucks to splurge, head to a professional for an extra thorough treatment.

2. Lathering on the self-tanner. You don't want to scare anyone with a severe orange glow, but a little extra bronze on your skin will only be to the good. Avoid the tanning booths and opt for a healthy self-tanning lotion or foam instead. Take care to practice with your technique well before your wedding so you don't risk walking down the aisle with unsightly streaks and stripes.

3. Using an at-home microdermabrasion product. Let's face it - you want your skin to look its radiant, healthy best, so why would you show up to your wedding with millions of dead skin cells blocking your glow? Use resurf.a.stic for a one-of-a-kind microdermabrasion experience that rivals other messy and ineffectual creams. Resurf.a.stic is the world's first and only "microdermhydration" stick, which combines professional-quality microdermabrasion technology with an intuitive, built-in hydration treatment, all in the convenience of an easy-to-use stick form.

4. Buying that high-end skincare product. Whether you've got a few fine lines you'd rather bust or some cellulite you wish to send packing, top-quality skincare products may help reduce the appearance of imperfections. Plus, with your fully exfoliated skin, your dermis will be able to absorb the full healing and restorative potential of all of your skincare products.
