Bride Groom signs
Every woman wants to feel stunning on her wedding day. Even if the wedding is right around the corner, it's not too late for an upcoming bride to implement a "wedding ready routine" to look her absolute best! Be sure to take time before your wedding and pamper yourself (set the planning aside) and do the following:
Clean and Whiten Your Teeth
This is perhaps one of the simplest ways to look your best for your wedding. With the help of a dentist, you can get a radiant smile through in-office whitening, tray whitening, or whitening strips. Nutley Family Dentistry describes in-office whitening as “ideal if you want immediate results. The whole process takes about an hour, taking little time out of busy lives….The result is dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.” Tray whitening is also achieved with the help of a dentist; it is a gradual, at-home treatment performed by filling customized trays with a whitening gel that sit in your mouth for a specified time each day for a set treatment period. The third option is whitening strips, which are available from a dentist or from local stores; they are applied once a day for a set time, and gradually whiten surface stains on the teeth. No matter which method of whitening you choose, you should definitely get a dental cleaning within a week of your wedding to ensure that your smile is fresh and clean for photographs.
Begin A Skincare Routine
Even though you will likely wear lots of makeup on your wedding day, your skin is the foundation beneath that makeup, and you should take great care of it—especially if you want to avoid breakouts. Begin a skincare routine each morning and each night as far in advance of your wedding as possible in order to ensure the best results. A standard at-home skincare routine recommended by dermatologists includes a daily cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen, with weekly a exfoliation and facial. Apply products in the correct order for maximum effects. The kinds of products that you choose should depend on your skin type (meaning whether your skin is sensitive, dry, oily, or a combination of these). Beyond at-home solutions to skincare concerns, consider getting a spa facial that targets more specific needs such as acne or redness. However, this comes with a warning: do not experiment with new skin treatments very close to your wedding day. You do not want to risk a bad reaction.
