Okay so let's talk skin! Everyone wants amazing skin and I have had so many brides ask me lately how to take care of their skin in the lead up to their wedding day. So here are just a few top skin tips absolutely everyone will benefit from!
💦 Drink water!
-I know it may seem obvious but so many of us don't drink enough water. We should be drinking at least 2 litres a day…and no, coffee doesn't count 🙄
🚿 Cleanse & Tone.
-Remove makeup: Firstly and most importantly make sure you are removing ALL of your makeup. Use a gentle face wash or cleansing oils are great too, especially for waterproof or more stubborn makeup.
-Tone: toner is an important step overlooked by many! Use a cotton pad to apply your toner. This will help to remove any access makeup that you may have missed during your cleanse. Toner has so many benefits including tightening your pores (which helps keep baddies like dirt and grime out of your skin) and restoring your skins pH balance (which can be put out of whack when cleansing) opt for a toner that contains B5 to help against moisture loss.
🚫 Say NO to sugar.
-It’s not a secret that sugar is bad for you. Refined sugar is an obvious one but try to avoid foods like pizza, pasta & white bread too as these carby foods will all convert into sugar in your body causing inflammation, breakouts & rosacea.
☀️🌛 Moisturise day & night
-No matter what your skin type is, you need to moisturise to keep your skin hydrated and looking amazing. Apply your moisturiser by massaging it into your skin when your skin is still damp as this will increase blood circulation and help your skin to best absorb the moisturiser.
Do your research and invest in a moisturiser that is perfect for your skin type.
🌱 Eat your Vitamins!
-Vitamins D, C, E & K are your skins best friend. Together they can help reduce redness, dryness, wrinkles, inflammation, under eye circles and the list goes on! If you aren’t getting enough vitamins in your diet, invest in some supplements to up your daily vitamin intake. Keep an eye out for these vitamins when choosing your skin care for an external boost to your skin.
