2023’S BRIDAL SKIN CARE GUIDE: Get Married to Good Skin Care

12 MONTHS OUT: The Essential Skin Care Routine Basics

Where to begin: Start a daily routine for your skin if you haven’t already. 

A good skincare product contains Vitamins A, C, and E, antioxidants, peptides, and growth factors. These ingredients are well-researched and clinically tested to show results of improved-looking skin. Environ products take the guesswork out of skin care management, and all their products pack a punch with these important ingredients. 

At Home–

Keep it simple, and add to your list: Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, and SPF sun protection. And Quick Question- Do you roll? Invest in an Environ Cosmetic-CIT™ Roller to help encourage your skin’s collagen production. This can be used as often as a few times a week. Roll the surface of your skin for 3-5 minutes prior to applying your daily moisturizer and serum.

At the Salon– 

  1. Schedule a professional skin care consultation to address any major skin concerns like redness, pigmentation, skin tone, fine lines, dark circles, etc. The healing time necessary for certain deep-level services lends these types of intensive services to be appropriate for 6-12 months prior to the wedding day.

  2. Schedule a basic facial once monthly leading up to the big day for maintenance. Consistency is key.

4-6 MONTHS OUT: Diet, Exercise, and Sleep

In addition to your daily at-home skincare schedule and monthly professional facials, hold up a mirror to your diet and lifestyle factors. 

We know, scientifically, diet does affect the skin. What you eat can help or hurt the look of great skin. The skin is the last organ to reap the benefits of ingested vitamins and minerals. That is why it is important to eat antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables as well as use nutrient-dense topical products. High-water content and vitamin-rich foods should become your best friends. Leafy greens, cucumbers, melons, bell peppers, apples, berries, and green tea are just a few “super” skin foods to help your daily efforts towards healthy-looking skin. 

Exercise is not only great for your body (and skin!) but great for your mental health too. After a long weekend of wedding planning and phone calls, take a long walk or stream a yoga video on your phone. 

Are your sleep habits up to par? Check out our blog all about how sleep affects the skin in a big way. Get into a sleep routine where you wake up around the same time each day if possible, creating a dark, cool environment when you sleep, and a bright day-light-filled environment upon waking. 

Diet and lifestyle are directly connected to optimal skin care management.

3-4 MONTHS OUT: Trial Runs

Book a trial run with your makeup artist and hair designer. This appointment is crucial to ensuring your vision matches their perception of you on the wedding day. 

Ask us about travel or sample-sized skin care products for your post-wedding travel needs. 

2-3 MONTHS OUT: Body Care

Remember your body. In addition to the lengths we go to for fantastic-looking face and neck areas, what about the arms and legs? If you have uneven skin tone, redness, or bumps on the bikini area, legs, arms, or chest, consider this. The Environ Derma-Lac Lotion contains several excellent moisturizers including lactic acid, helping to gently remove dead skin cells and ammonium lactate. Follow this step with Environ’s A, C, & E Body Oil and a broad spectrum SPF. 

1 MONTH OUT: Maintain Care

This is not the time to experiment with a new experimental product or service.

Keep up your daily skin management practices. This includes daily skin care day/night routine, using SPF on the face and neck, getting to your monthly facial, making mindful food choices, and using effective body care products. 

Schedule the pre-wedding appointments: wax, hair color touch-up, spray tan, or manicure with thoughtful precision. Ideally, they should be scheduled the week or two prior to the wedding, depending on the service. 

1 month out is *not* the time to book an intensive skin care treatment requiring days or weeks of recovery time. Opt for a brightening facial or something of a similar gentle yet effective level of intensity. 

1 WEEK OUT: Attend Your Final Appointments 

Attend your appointments (hair, wax, tan, nails, etc), and lean into feeling that sweet anticipation before the big party.

Consider extra pampering time for yourself like a long bath and an overnight mask like the Revival Mask or the Antipollution Mask. Reflect on the hard work you’ve put into yourself and into planning the big day with your sweetie.

Take a minute to write down your thoughts on an after-wedding skin care plan so that your hard work can continue after the party guests have all gone home. Book that follow-up facial, and keep up the consistency. These after-wedding appointments and goals can serve as important markers to look forward to in the weeks after the wedding.

NIGHT BEFORE: Rest

Consider sleep one of your skin’s best friends. Follow your daily nighttime skincare routine, and get a good night’s rest. Remember to pack a soothing lotion for the day of like Enviorn’s luxurious and lightly-scented Hand & Nail Cream.

DAY OF: Be Present

Following your typical morning routine: cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect.
Hydrate.
Former brides often recommend eating a bigger lunch because there likely won’t be time or opportunity to indulge in a full dinner at the party.
Let the professionals take over. Assuming makeup artists, planners, and others are there to assist, let them. Enjoy your day of pampering and celebration.
Let your skin shine!
