Winter makes your skin dry, flaky, and red, which is hard to work with when you have to put makeup on or are just trying to look your best. Some people also face excessive winter dryness, leading to irritated, painful skin that is pretty much a buzzkill and gets in the way of you enjoying the wedding you spent months planning.
If you’re getting married in winter, and the chilly air is not a friend to your skin, here are three tips that will help you save your big day—and your honeymoon.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
If you’ve been scouring Google for skincare tips, you’ve probably already come across a couple hundred blogs, including the ones written by licensed dermatologists, saying to chug as much water as you can—ideally, 10 to 14 glasses a day.
Water helps your body flush waste and toxins, keeping you healthy, fresh, and free of any contaminants. Inner health reflects directly on your skin, giving you a healthy glow. Water also keeps your skin elastic by keeping your skin cells hydrated, helping you look more youthful.
Don’t Leave Out the Moisturizer
The second most important thing you need to ensure besides keeping your water intake up is using moisturizer. This will prevent unnecessary moisture loss, keeping your skin soft, supple, and wrinkle-free.
The most important times to moisturize are in the morning, after you exfoliate your skin, and when you’re going to sleep at night. This will prevent your skin from drying out during the day, and protect it from the harsh effects of the weather, and also during the night as you sleep—helping you wake up to fresher, healthier, glowing skin.
You Are What You Eat
Finally, the third most important factor when it comes to a great winter wedding look is taking care of your diet. You are what you eat, and if you want great skin and hair, you’ll have to make sure you’re healthy on the inside.
During the months leading up to your wedding, make sure you’re eating a balanced diet, plenty of healthy fats, and skin-friendly food. Make sure to include fruit and leafy greens in your diet as they are great for encouraging great skin health.
Last but not least, even though your skin will make sure you look gorgeous on your big day, it’s your wedding dress that everyone will be talking about for days after.
