From wedding planning to the hustle and bustle of the wedding day itself, getting married is a major stressor albeit the best time of a woman’s life. However, amid the nostalgic moments of stamping invitation envelopes to laughter at the rehearsal dinner, the commotion of it all can wreak havoc on your skin. For instance, I’ll admit- I got a cold sore the day before my wedding! I know, I know- frightening. But fear not: I’ve highlighted our best skin savers that will keep that precious skin of yours in check so you can be the beautiful bride you really are!
Oh no! A pimple emerged on my face…what should I do?
First of all, relax. It’s just a zit. Secondly, we have what you may as well call a magic-potion-in-a-bottle… our world famous Drying Lotion. That stuff will zap a whitehead overnight, but if you wake up with a zit on the day of the wedding (bummer), apply an ice cube on the blemish for a few minutes to help reduce inflammation. Or try our Drying Cream- it’s a dual-purpose formula that will not only help dry up small pimples, but will also help conceal the blemish. On the other hand, if you have a large, cystic blemish (think red and inflamed), then apply our Buffering Lotion on the affected area.
Are you wearing a strapless or spaghetti-strap dress and you have body acne? You can also use the Buffering Lotion on your back or anywhere on your body that has a nasty pimple. And resist the urge to pick your face. That will only make matters worse, so hands off! Remember, good ol’ foundation and concealer will help mask that pimple, so it’s all good! If you can, hire a good makeup artist and she (or he) will work their magic.
Wedding jitters kept me up all night and now I have puffy, tired eyes!
It happens to the best of us, but it’s especially not cool on your own wedding day. The first thing you should do upon waking is to splash cold water on your face. This will help give you a quick jolt of energy, plus the cold sensation on your eye area will help constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling. Then, gently press cold tea bags underneath your eyes for about 15 minutes- this will also help reduce the puffiness. Lastly, apply our Ceramide Eye Gel to soothe the eye area and further alleviate puffy, tired eyes. If possible, refrigerate the eye gel the night before so the coolness will perk up those eyes even more.
I have cold feet…er, a red, flushed face! Help!
Although ‘cold feet’ is not exactly our area of expertise, we do have amazing products to help calm the redness. Try our Azulene Calming Mask or Calma Mask followed by our Control Cream pre-makeup application.
Last but not least, the BRIDE must BREATHE and RELAX!
