Your 4 week pre-wedding skincare routine05/09/2014
The best advice when you’re planning your wedding is to take a deep breath, and rather than stressing yourself out, devise a realistic plan. The same is true for your skincare regime; rather than getting frustrated with your bad skin, do something about it.
However, like your wedding plans, perfect skin won’t appear overnight. The sooner you begin to look after your skin, hair and overall well-being, the better your results will be.
Because you’ve got enough to worry about, we’ve designed a pre-wedding skincare regime perfect for all skin types. The key to any regime is to use products with clean, organic ingredients which will encourage the skin’s natural defenses. VOYA has got you covered.
Firstly, remember that good skin comes from within. No matter how many pre-wedding parties or late-nights planning sessions you have, make sure that you get eight hours of sleep.
Sprinkle a few drops of VOYA Essential Oil on your pillow to help you drift off. Eat well and get plenty of exercise in the fresh air. Up your water intake to two litres a day to keep your skin hydrated and purified. Take regular baths using our Lazy Days seaweed to relax your whole body and nourish your skin.
No matter how marvellous your hair-stylist is. your hair will never look well unless it’s healthy.
Many hair products can actually cause more harm than good, stripping your hair of its natural oils and drying it out. Our Silky By Nature shampoo and Forget Me Knot conditioner work in harmony with your hair, keeping it nourished for your big day.
Most bridal dresses expose some part of your body; your back, shoulders, arms or legs. So you’re going to want the skin on your body to be every bit as flawless as your face.
For anybody who has worn fake tan before, you’ll know that the secret is to prep your skin by exfoliating and moisturising it well in advance of stepping into the booth.
Improve the texture of your skin with our Exfoliating Body Brush and banish cellulite with our Cellulite Massager before you shower. Smooth your skin even more using a gentle body scrub and cleanser. A good body scrub repairs and protects your skin as well as riding it of any dulling impurities. Lastly, finish every shower by moisturising with a good body cream. Around your wedding time, people tend to pay particular attention to your hands (well, mainly the sparkly thing on your left hand). Keep them in tip top condition with Handy To Have hand cream.
Put on a Happy Face
Moving on to the face – it’s so important to get into a good routine a few weeks in advance of your big day. With VOYA products, you’ll start to notice the improved look and feel of the skin almost instantly.
It is wise to allow your skin time to fully detoxify itself of any nasty chemicals other skincare products might have left behind however.
Once or twice a week, exfoliate using a good quality face scrub. On a day when you haven’t exfoliated, use Maskerade to hydrate and pamper the skin.
Daily face routine
Now for your daily routine; cleanse the skin morning and night using Cleanse and Mend, and tone with a few refreshing sprays of Ritzy Spritzy. Moisturising is crucial for healthy skin. We recommend using a serum and a regular moisturiser to achieve a perfect, glowing complexion.
At night time, step things up a notch by applying night cream. And don’t forget to keep your eye are and lips hydrated with our Bright Eyes eye cream and a good lip balm. Don’t forget you can take your skincare essentials on honeymoon with you with our travel-sized Organic Voyager and Skincare Kit.
The skincare products you use really make a big difference to the look of your skin. However, cheesy and all as it may sound, the glow of a happy bride is incomparable. Just enjoy it!
