Throughout my years of doing wedding makeup I have seen many types of skin conditions. In actuality that is what finally made me go back to school and I became a Licensed Esthetician.
I saw the need to educate and help my clients with what seem to be missing from a lot of daily routines, a simple skin care regimen.
I totally understand that we have so many options that it can be hard to pick the correct products for your skin, there is so many products out there with so many claims, it can totally be so overwhelming and at the same time confusing. Below are my quick tips on a skin care regimen.
Cleanse, Exfoliate, Hydrate, and Protect. These are my go to steps to everyone that wants to start a skin care routine.
Cleanse to remove any oil, toxins, environmental pollution, dust, dirt (am and pm)
Exfoliate – Remove dead skin cells, choose between a chemical or mechanical exfoliator. You can start with doing this 3 times a week. (alternating days)
Hydrate – You can use a toner and then right after use a moisturizer ideal for your skin type.
Protect – Always protect your skin, even if you think you are not going to be exposed to the sun. Choose one you like, if you don’t like it you won’t use it. Sun damage is the #1 cause of wrinkles and dna damage.
If possible, I suggest seeing an esthetician as soon as you know you are getting married so that you can get a personalized consultation. Skin care regimens can take a few weeks for your skin to get adjusted and I don’t recommend anything new close to your wedding date. However a good skin care regimen prior to your wedding can make such a difference on the way your makeup looks and it’s something you continue to do after the wedding and benefit from for a healthy complexion.
