The Secret to Beautiful Skin on Your Wedding Day
All brides want to look their best on the big day, and skincare is a big part of that equation. Our skin is exposed to dirt and chemicals throughout the day, so it's important to take care of our skin by cleansing it properly and nurturing it as best we can.
Going to bed with dirty skin can cause breakouts, wrinkles, and premature aging, so it's so important to make sure we go to bed with clean skin each night.
So I thought I would take this opportunity to share a simple bridal skincare routine for nighttime so you can implement it as you prepare for your big day!
Bridal Skincare Nighttime Routine
Remove Your Makeup
Before you wash your face, it's important to remove as much of your makeup as possible. Wearing your makeup to bed keeps all the dirt and oil from the day stuck in your skin, leading to breakouts and other yucky stuff. In order for your facewash to penetrate your skin to truly get it clean, you have to remove anything that's covering up your skin's surface. Consider using makeup remover wipes for a simple and easy solution.
Cleanse Your Skin
One of my favorite ways to get my skin squeaky clean is by using the LUNA™ mini 2 from FOREO! In fact, you may remember that I included this compact but powerful device as one of my honeymoon beauty essentials! Use FOREO's Day + Night Cleansing Duo or your favorite smooth facial cleanser paired with your LUNA mini 2 and let it scrub away the dead skin cells — getting your facewash into your pores to leave your skin squeaky clean. Using the LUNA to cleanse your skin will also open up your pores to fully absorb your treatments and moisturizers to better nourish your skin.
Treat & Moisturize Your Skin
Apply your favorite moisturizers and serums or other treatments to nurture and pamper your skin. This is when you can apply eye creams and other such treatments to heal your skin and prevent signs of aging. You may want to think about picking up a serum or treatment with retinol if you're looking to help fight wrinkles, blemishes or skin dullness. You'll want to apply serums and treatments first, followed by your eye cream and a moisturizer to seal it all in. Then, and only then, should you hit the hay!
Why the LUNA Mini 2 is awesome:
It's gentler: Silicone facial brush is a gentle, nonabrasive alternative to the bristled facial brushes
It's More Hygenic: Silicone is nonporous, so it doesn't absorb daily grime or harbor bacteria buildup
It's Eco-friendly: LUNA™ Mini 2 requires no replacement brush heads!
It's 100% Waterproof: The charging port is sealed so you can use it in the shower.
It's Adjustable: The cleansing intensity is adjustable so you can personalize your cleanse with 8 different speed settings.
- It's Travel-friendly: LUNA™ Mini 2 has an integrated battery that lasts for up to 5 months / 300 full cleansing routines!
- It's got a Guarantee: The device comes with a 2-Year Limited Warranty and 10-Year Quality Guarantee.
I definitely recommend picking up a LUNA™ mini 2 if you're looking for a practical, savvy skincare option that is powerful and gentle at the same time.
