How to get that warm bridal glowEver wonder how brides get that warm bridal glow?  The key is to start well before your wedding day.  To help get the best results, start at least 6 months prior to your wedding day.  The main focus is on clear, bright skin. To achieve this, start with exfoliating.  Exfoliating sloughs off dry dead skin cells, revealing new vibrant cells underneath.  Make sure you are using a SPF on your face after exfoliating.  You don’t want to expose the fragile, new skin to harmful ultraviolet rays.

If your skin is red, or have signs of rosacea, try using some hydrocortisone cream.  A drop will calm down the redness and itchiness. You can also try drinking some green tea.  Green tea has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which  can also reduce the redness and clear up breakouts.

For problem skin, skin with blackheads, try using products containing salicylic acid.  By making this part of your daily routine, your pores will become unclogged, revealing more vibrant skin.  Salicylic acid, when used on breakouts, will reduce inflammation in the affected area, and provide a calming effect.

Start taking a multi vitamin each day.  It will help to give your hair, skin and nails that boost they need to look vibrant.  Stress takes a toll on your hair skin and nail, leaving them dull and lifeless looking.

Don’t forget about your hands.  You will want to keep the skin on your hands looking beautiful as you show off your beautiful wedding ring.  You will want to use a scrub on your hands and generously moisturize afterwards.  You can also try a deep moisturizer on your hands before bedtime, and wear cotton gloves to bed.  This will keep your hands supple, soft and vibrant.

No matter what makeup you are using, how much or how little makeup you use, you will look your best when you are providing a fresh, vibrant complexion as your canvas.
