Don't Do These 10 Things Before The Wedding

For many people, wedding is their most important thing in life. In this special day, brides will do lots of things. But before the wedding, how to make you more beautiful? You sohuld avoid these things:

1. First of all, don't start a completely new beauty regime, stick (mainly) to your trusted routine.Using new beauty products can trigger an allergic reaction, which can greatly affect your look, this includes washing detergents, body washes and shampoos ladies. Stick to the brands you love.

2. And also, don't completely change your make up look. If you're getting your makeup professionally done it will be flawless, stick to your natural style - you want to look your very best on the day, not like somebody else.


3.  This might seem odd but avoid salt. Sodium can hold as much as fifty times its weight in water. So if you intend to shed off some pounds, simply cutting down your sodium consumption can give you great results. Alcohol and salt also leave the face swollen.

4. If you're planning a facial, peel or something more intense book an appointment at least 3 months before to avoid any allergic reactions. Don't get any major cosmetic treatments just before the wedding.

5. To be safe, get your first wax three months before the wedding, like a more intense treatment, don't try out a new wax (or get your first) just before the wedding. Your last wax should be a couple of weeks before.

6. Try not to exfoliate your skin too much. Over-exfoliation or doing aggressive skin treatments close to your wedding day could create skin dehydration and make it difficult for make-up application.

7.  Try to stay out of the sun. Ok,  so you might say there's not much chance of getting sunburnt with our Irish weather, but it happens. The sun is always hiding behind those clouds so make sure your foundation has spf in it, and wear sunscreen where your skin is exposed. You don't want to be pink, peeling and swollen on the day!


8. While having a bit of colour on your wedding day can be nice, especially if your translucent like me, don't be tempted to get a spray tan the day or two before. Make sure to book an appointment with a professional a few days before the wedding so the excess solution can wash off.

9. Something that is a real no-no (we've heard the stories and seen the pictures) but whatever you do not cut or colour your hair too close to the wedding, if it's a disaster you will need time to fix it, if it's a few weeks before you will be able to!

10. Don't do your nails too early! Nobody wants a chip at the last minutes so book an appointment 2 days before the wedding and let everyone else do the heavy lifting - or better yet, get a Shellac which will last for 2 weeks. ( Top tip: buy the nail varnish colour just in case you need a top up last minute!)
