There are a million moving pieces to any given wedding.
For the bride, looking absolutely perfect on your wedding day is an absolute must; likewise, makeup is a huge component of any bride wishing to look flawless when she says “I do.”

However, such stress can take a toll on your skin and may distract you from feeling or looking one-hundred percent. Rather than freaking out about breaking out, devise a plan to make sure that your makeup and skin are taken care leading up to your wedding day. By having a skincare plan in place, you can walk down the aisle with confidence and look fabulous doing it.
In the days prior to your wedding, you’re going to want to invest in the best products possible to avoid breakouts and keep your skin clear. While you’ll more than likely have your make-up done by a professional who can cover up any obvious blemishes, keep in mind the difference a good toner can make in helping give you that classic bridal glow.
Likewise, you can use your toner to accent your dress or jewelry. For example, if you have a rose gold ring or necklace, consider a rosy toner to match. Although a subtle touch, your glow will show up in photographs for years to come and leave a lasting impression on everyone who sees them.
Take Days to De-stress
Planning a wedding has the potential to be one of the most stressful experiences of one’s life, especially if you’re putting on a large and elaborate ceremony. Therefore, it’s absolutely crucial that you take every possible step you can to destress during the week prior to your wedding. It’s normal to have butterflies in your stomach; however, too much stress or excitement can cause breakouts.
Some ways that you can calm yourself down before the big day include:
- Taking a day or two to relax at a spa or treat yourself to a massage
- Take time to mediate or exercise as a means of keeping yourself active and perhaps distracted from the minor details of your ceremony
- Connect with friends and family, opening up about your thoughts, feelings or concerns prior to the wedding
- Read or keep a journal as a means of calming yourself down or finding inner peace
Weddings can naturally be stressful; however, don’t forget the reason why you’re getting married in the first place. Instead of focusing on the potential negatives, you should look forward to your big day; also, consider that part of looking your best is simply having the confidence to do so. By taking care of your skin and yourself, you can have peace of mind as you walk down the aisle.
