Whether you’re the bride-to-be, maid of honour or mother of the bride, we’ve created the perfect guide to help you and your skin look their beautiful best on the big day.
Six months to go
Begin your pre-wedding beauty blitz with a luxuriously pampering Liz Earle Signature Facial at our London Treatment Rooms, then follow with a course of monthly maintenance facials. Alternatively, follow our step-by-step home facial guide on Jo’s blog.
Boost your skin and circulation by dry body brushing with a natural bristle brush once a day before you shower. Start at your feet and work upwards in long, firm strokes towards your heart. Follow with Energising Body Wash and Energising Hip & Thigh Gel.
Three months to go
As the big day approaches, stress levels may be rising so balance any skin changes with a weekly mask. Need help choosing? Check out Jo’s blog on finding the right mask for you or give our team of expertly trained skincare advisors a call on 01983 813913.
At night, start using a facial oil, such as Superskin Concentrate, to balance and calm stressed skin. Warm a small amount in your hands, then take a few moments to inhale the aromatic essential oils to soothe the senses and aid restful sleep. Then massage over your face, neck and décolletage with light sweeping movements.
One month to go
Continue to thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise every day and start using Gentle Face Exfoliator 2-3 times a week.
Keep up with your daily body brushing, and exfoliate your body with Energising Body Scrub 3 times a week, paying attention to elbows, heels, knees and ankles. For your bust, décolletage and neck, use Superskin Bust Treatment which is packed with kigelia, quince seed and mangosteen to smooth and plump.
Don’t forget your hands and feet. Start applying Foot Repair Moisturiser and Hand Repair every night before bed then massage Superbalm into your nails and cuticles.
Two weeks to go
Help your eyes to sparkle by applying an eye compress in the morning to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Dampen 2 cotton pads with chilled Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion then place over eyes for 10 minutes.
Care for your eye area and soften fine lines with Daily Eye Repair in the morning and Smoothing Line Serum at night or Superskin Eye & Lip Treatment if you have more mature skin.
Go for a sauna or steam to cleanse your body and de-stress. Use a small amount of Deep Cleansing Mask on your t-zone to help decongest and detox your skin.
For fuzz-free skin on the big day, book a bikini, leg and underarm wax. Soothe your skin afterwards with Instant Boost Skin Tonic – the organic aloe vera helps to keep skin ultra-hydrated and calmed.
3 days to go
Give yourself a little ‘me-time’ by relaxing in a warm bath and applying Brightening Treatment Mask to your face and neck for 3 minutes. If you have sensitive or dehydrated skin, use Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask.
Go for a professional file and varnish for your hands and feet, then top up with Hand Repair and Foot Repair Moisturiser daily.
If you are planning to have a fake tan, prepare skin by buffing away dead skin cells with Energising Body Scrub and Gentle Face Exfoliator for the face. Lavish your skin with Superskin Body Cream the day before your tan application to ensure even coverage.
The day before
Treat any last-minute blemishes by mixing Deep Cleansing Mask with Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser in the morning, then apply Spot-On during the day.
Today is all about soothing your nerves so why not treat yourself to a professional massage? Also, try to avoid bread, pasta and salt as they can cause bloating and avoid alcohol completely if you want to look and feel your best.
The night before
Go to bed early and sleep with a few pillows under your knees – this will help reduce puffy ankles in the morning.
Massage a few drops of Superskin Concentrate over face, neck and the backs of hands. Have a warm bath and turn off your mobile.
Eat a light meal such as a salad and soup and do not eat after 7pm – you will get a better night’s sleep.
The big day
Thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise. Pop on Brightening Treatment Mask (or Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask if you have sensitive skin) and an eye compress with chilled Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion.
Have a warm shower with Orange Flower Body Wash, then apply some Hand Repair to your hands and Superbalm to your cuticles, while you take 5 minutes to relax and take some deep breaths.
As you add your finishing touches, spritz your hair and behind your ears with your favourite perfume. Keep your lipstick, some tissues, and a travel size Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer to soothe your skin and senses throughout the day.
