Keeping Your Skin Healthy Before a Winter Wedding

Blog Post

When you look at wedding pictures, it’s easy to assume everything is perfect, from the hair to the shoes. However, a long-term investment that’s easy to miss is healthy skin. Not only does taking care of your skin make you look great on your wedding day, but it also makes you feel more present if you don’t have to worry about it. While makeup is great for hiding blemishes, it looks even better on skin that is already healthy, moisturized, and clean.

Start Your Skin Regimen with Nutritious Food and Water

One of the easiest ways to care for your skin are to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and drink a lot of water. Fruits and vegetables, in addition to being very healthy in many other ways, provide many of the nutrients and vitamins that are necessary for healthy, functional skin. Water prevents you from getting dehydrated, which can show up on your skin. These two things are simple, but will do more for you than many other beauty tips can. Another perk is that eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water can help improve your sleep patterns and calm your nerves, making wedding planning and preparation better in other respects.

Cover Your Skin in Wind and Cold Weather

To protect your skin, you also have to think about the weather and dress appropriately. Windburn makes your skin dry, itchy, and painful. Wearing wind-breaking clothing when it’s windy is a must, especially during cold months. On the other hand, sunburn causes skin to flake off and can contribute to skin cancer, so wearing plenty of sunscreen is a good idea. Don’t be fooled by the cold weather—you can still get sunburned in the winter if you have prolonged exposure to the sun.

Choose the Right Skincare Products

When it comes to skin products, it can be confusing to know what will make your particular skin healthy and happy. It’s important to learn about your skin type. According to WebMD, most people have either oily, dry, combination, or normal skin. Knowing your type allows you to figure out what your skin’s biggest issue is, whether it’s losing moisture or overproducing oil. Make sure to choose a product that doesn’t exacerbate whatever issues your skin is prone to.

All skin types benefit from being clean and moisturized, but the kind of cleanser or moisturizer that will work for you may not be effective for other people. If you’re just starting out, get some test sizes of a few different moisturizers and cleansers.

You may already know what your skin needs and have had success in keeping it healthy in the winter. It may be best to stock up on your favorite products and not change anything right before the wedding happens. If you have chronic winter skin issues, now is the time to turn over a new leaf and find the products that will work for you, while you have time to analyze their effectiveness.

Choose to eat and drink in a healthy way. Protect your skin from the elements with the right outer gear. Use nourishing products to keep your skin healthy. Doing these things will ensure that you are ready for the big day. All those wedding day smiles will be even more beautiful when you’re confident in your beautiful skin.
