Your dream wedding is only a stretch away, and as excited as you are about your big day, you can’t help but break a sweat. Every bride-to-be wants to look and feel their best while having their ultimate Meghan Markle moment. On top of the countless things that you have to plan, prepping flawless, wedding-ready skin ought to be near the top of your priority list!
Whether you’re the soon-to-be bride, bridesmaid, or an honored guest, we’re here to give you some tips on how to get the the glowiest, brightest, and clearest skin ever to get you all covered for the big day!
1. Minimize Daily Stress
Stress can get the best of us sometimes. It’s an aggravating factor that can lead to fatigued skin, puffiness, rashes, and acne flare-ups. Of course, it’s super easy to feel overwhelmed in the midst of wedding planning, so don’t forget to slow down and make a conscious effort to keep your stress level under control. Get plenty of rest, pamper yourself, meditate or do a light exercise to prevent your skin and body from showing the side effects.

2. Eat Superfoods
No matter what your skin type is, supercharge your skin with healthy food to encourage a radiant complexion. Fruits like oranges, blueberries, pomegranates, and raspberries are high in antioxidants that help fight free radicals and support healthy skin. Right now we are loving this Antioxidant Booster Smoothie Bowl recipe! Almonds and walnuts are also great because they’re high in omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E that help improve the skin’s elasticity, keeping your complexion plump and youthful.
Your skin is a powerful barometer of your overall health & wellness, so nourish and take care of physical health and your skin will thank you!
3. Consult an Esthetician
If you’ve got a serious skin concern you want to address before the big day, don’t wait until the last minute to consult a skin expert. An esthetician can assess your skin & lifestyle, then put together a tailor-made regimen of at-home products and professional treatments to achieve your best skin ever. Give yourself a few months to execute that game plan so your skin looks tip-top by the wedding date. Remember: it takes a full skin cycle (about 28 days) for you to see the results from an updated skin care regimen, so you have to start early and stick with it.

4. Try An At-Home Facial
To get the complete bridal glow, here’s an easy way to get the results of a pro facial all on your own.
- Exfoliate your skin with gentle Jojoba Beads Exfoliant (if you’re more dry) or Synergie  Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque (if you’re normal to oily).
- Follow with Deep Hydration Masque to firm and plump the skin.
- Finish up your routine with a relaxing Crystal Contour Gua Sha facial massage to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness, and detoxify for a clear, bright glow.
