Wedding prep can be hectic. There’s so much to plan, from the dress and tux to the florist, venue, and more. Amidst the excitement of cake tastings and finding that perfect spot to say “I do,” skincare preparation often takes a backseat. But isn’t flawless skin just as important as any other aspect of planning your special day? Here, we’ve compiled some essential wedding skincare tips that will leave both of you looking and feeling your best when you walk down the aisle.

1. Establish a skincare routine:

At its most basic (grooms, we’re talking to you), a skincare routine should consist of a daily cleanser and a moisturizer. You can take it to the next level with serums and essences, eye creams, and special formulas for particular concerns. 

At the very least, cleanse your skin twice daily with a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping away natural oils. Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

2. Hydration is key:

Moisturize daily; hydrated skin is essential for a radiant complexion on the big day. Use a moisturizer suitable for your skin type every morning (ensure it has SPF) and a richer formula at night to lock in hydration and prevent scaly skin or dry patches, especially on knees and elbows.

3. Nourish your skin from within:

Fuel your skin with nutrients by incorporating foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E into your diet. These vitamins promote skin health and support collagen production for a youthful glow. And remember that hydration tip? Aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water to keep your skin supple and smooth.

4. Try light therapy:

Light therapy is a gentle yet powerful ally for your skin. Its wavelengths penetrate deep into the skin to target common concerns like acne, wrinkles, redness, and dark spots. Offering a natural, non-invasive approach (unlike other methods at the dermatologist), light therapy gently improves skin tone and texture by increasing collagen production and cellular growth, ensuring you glow confidently on your special day.

5. Protect your skin from UV damage:

If you spend most of your day indoors, your SPF included in your moisturizer should suffice. On days you’ll be outdoors, shield your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to your face, neck, and chest (as well as other exposed areas). UV protection is crucial for preventing premature aging and maintaining skin health.

6. Choose skincare products wisely:

Opt for skincare products labeled as non-comedogenic to prevent clogged pores and breakouts. These products are formulated to be lightweight and won’t block pores, avoiding the dreaded morning-of-the-wedding breakout. 

From light therapy to moisturizing daily and choosing gentle skincare products, adopting a holistic approach to skincare ensures that you both will radiate confidence on your special day.
