How to get Healthy Wedding Skin
You have your big day ahead of you, and with the stress of everything going on, the last place you want it to show, is on your face. Get healthy wedding skin for your big day with these steps.
Fill up on antioxidants:Â
Snack on berries, carrots and sweet potato which act as antioxidants to neutralise any free radicalsÂ (Stress, pollution, smoking, sun) that get into your skin and damage those healthy skin cells. Rehydrate your skin with nuts and salmon, to replace your natural essential fatty acids, keeping your skin plump and dewy. If your prone to breakouts, try cutting back on dairy and processed food.
Yes, thatâ€™s right. Getting a full 6-8 hours a night really does help keep your skin healthy. Whilst sleeping, your body and skin is constantly repairing and restoring itself. Getting anything less than 6-8 hours will result in a dull, tired, red, irritated skin.
Up your water intake
Want that healthyÂ bridal glow? Up your water intake to 2-3 litres a day! This will help flush out toxins and rehydrate your skin. Donâ€™t forget to replace water lost through sweat during exercise.
When the stress hormone,Cortisol arrives, it stimulates oil glands producing more oil therefore causing breakouts. Your blood rushes to your main body organs leaving the skin with a dull appearance and your facial muscles are contracted more often, creating more lines and wrinkles. Maintain stress levels with regular pilates or a yoga class. Spend 5 minutes focusing on your breathing or better yet, treat yourself to a facial and get relaxation plus healthy wedding skin results.
Stay out of the Sun
The sun is the biggest factor to ageing skin. 90% of the way our skin looks is caused by the sun. Protect yourself daily with an SPF to avoid pigmentation from appearing and to prevent lines and wrinkles.
Healthy wedding skin starts at home
Â Get yourself onto a good skin care routine. What you put on your face everyday is so important and may just fix your skin concerns. Having a good skin care routine at home with the correct products will help to maintain salon skin treatment results.
