Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, captured in time by photos. There is no doubt that you will want to look your best. While your day-of preparations will undoubtedly be influential, the preparation for your wedding day starts long before that moment. If you want to look your best on your big day, here are a few tips to give you the glowing, showstopping result that you want.
On your big day, you’ll want your teeth to sparkle like diamonds. However, teeth whitening can take months. If you want to revitalize your smile so that your teeth shine and sparkle, make a plan at least four months in advance. Regardless of whether you try over-the-counter whitening strips and toothpaste, work with a dentist to professionally whiten your teeth or use commonly found household products like baking soda, don’t wait until the last minute to start this process.
Many brides spend a significant amount of time developing plans for their luscious locks. This may entail hair treatments, coloring, styling and temporary hair extensions. If you are considering any of these hair treatments, give yourself time to decide and experiment. Work with a professional haircare artist to develop a treatment plan that works best for you. If you start early, you can develop a picture-perfect plan without any unnecessary stress.
Stress Management Plan
One of the most influential factors that can zap the energy and vitality from your beauty is stress. Unfortunately, stress and weddings can often go hand in hand. Don’t let stress get the best of you. Instead, set up a stress management plan early, ideally the moment you start wedding planning. Whether you schedule periodic spa days, days that don’t involve any wedding preparations, mindful exercises or other forms of stress relief, the most important thing is to tackle stressors early.
Physical Exercise Routine
A great way to reduce stress and look your best on your big day is to incorporate a physical exercise routine. Not only can this help you shed some extra weight, but it can also leave you feeling healthier and happier. Instead of drastically escalating your exercise routine, focus on gradual changes and consistency that you incorporate over several months or even one year in advance. You’ll see both the short-term results on your big day and the long-term health benefits of increased physical activity.
A big part of looking your best for your big day starts on the inside out. Your skin’s look and feel are influenced by what you consume. Give your body the necessary nutrients that it craves with lean proteins, whole grains, fruits and vegetables and plenty of water. Avoid crash dieting and instead, start incorporating these nourishing options into your diet at least six months in advance. These changes can leave you with clear and glowing skin, boosted energy levels and an overall heathier look.
Many brides seek out a bronzed look for their wedding day. While a bit of sun exposure can leave you with a gorgeous glow, you also need to be incredibly careful when it comes to sun exposure. The last thing you’ll want to deal with is sunburn and damage. Whenever you go outside, make sure that you have proper sun protection. Everything from sunscreen to sunglasses to a sun hat can help you stay safe in the sun before your big day. If you do want to get some color before the wedding, consider sunless tanning or make sure that you have a carefully calculated plan that prioritizes your health.
Preparing for a wedding requires a lot of planning, especially for brides who want to look their best. If you want to improve your beauty regimen, make sure that you incorporate these elements so that you can look your best from the inside out.
