To ensure that your skin is glowing and ready for the big day, we asked bridal beauty expert Shannon Mann from Pink Orchid Studio to share her favourite skin care products that are essential for brides.
Here’re 9 skin care products every bride needs for a flawless look.
1. Face Cleanser
Cleansing is an important part of your skin care regimen. A quality facial cleanser gets rid of old surface skin cells, dirt, dust, make-up, and bacteria, and allows your pores to breathe freely. Chanel Mousse Confort is the best cleanser I’ve come across to date.
Hydrabio Serum for daytime
Hydra Beauty Creme Riche for nighttime
Moisturizers not only prevent and treat dry skin, but also protect sensitive skin, improve skin tone and texture, and mask imperfections.
3. Eye Cream
Skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your skin. Therefore, it needs treated more delicately both in terms of product type and how it’s applied. Eye creams and serums are formulated to address specific skin issues around the eyes like dark circles, crows feet, and sagging.
4. Hydrating Mask
Beat dry skin and nourish your skin with hydrating masks. I recommend Aveda’s hydrating mask as it leaves your skin soft, smooth, and healthy looking.
5. Eye Makeup Remover
To keep your skin blemish free you need to remove all your makeup at night before bed. Most face washes will have a tough time removing most long wearing eye makeup and concealers. Vichy’s waterproof eye makeup remover is one the best options in the marketplace.
6. Body Oil
We often take care of the skin on our face but forget about the rest of the body. Give your neglected skin the Bio-Oil treatment at least a couple of times a week. Liberally apply this oil all over your damp skin before bed and watch your skin transform into silky, hydrated skin.
We should all get in the habit of protecting our skin from the harsh rays of the sun, which over time, are responsible for accelerating the signs of aging – creating age spots, wrinkles, etc. The Laroche Posay face sunscreen melts into the skin with a matte finish, perfect to wear under your makeup or on its own.
8. Face Brush
Its important to give your skin a deep clean removing dirt and bacteria to prevent breakouts, remove dead skin, and to allow your skincare products to be their most effective on your skin.
I love the Clairsonic Face Brush which also has a brush option for the body as well. This brush will leave your body and face polished.
Dehydration and exhaustion can trigger many negative reactions in your skin such as dryness, eczema, dark circles, and breakouts. Drinking water and getting quality uninterrupted sleep is a great way to flush out toxins and ensure your body is running at 100%.
