Starting a skincare routine the night before your wedding in a panic to get the best skin for your wedding day is not how a skincare routine works. It’s not an overnight cure. It would help if you used it regularly to see its positive effects on your skin. That’s why it’s a good idea to start following a skincare routine once you have a finalized wedding day scheduled.

The minimum time you should have had with your skincare routine would be around six months. 

It’s a good idea to space it out that far if you plan on addressing some skin issues that may flare up before going away after using certain skincare products. That also gives you time to determine whether certain skincare products harm or help your skin. That way, if any adverse effects occur, you have time to help your skin recover before your wedding day.

Sometimes, adverse effects on your skin occur because the skincare product purges it first. If you let that pass, your skin can be better than ever. 

If you want to splurge on your skin for the wedding, why not try cosmetic injectables? Cosmetic injectables are an excellent procedure that can provide a lasting boost to your skin, which is helpful on special occasions like your wedding day. These injectables relax the muscles around your wrinkles, lessening their overall appearance. 

Much like the skincare routine, these injections don’t work best the same day you get the procedure.

Technically, you can get the anti-wrinkle injections on your wedding day, but for them to take full effect, they will need at least a week to two weeks to fully set in. Also, the best results for these injections don’t come out until the 4th to 6th week after you’ve taken them. Therefore, they need some time before you get their best results.

The effects of your injections can last three to six months, depending on several factors, including which part of your skin received the injections.

Exfoliate skin

One of the parts of your skincare routine that you should include would be an exfoliating phase.

Exfoliation aims to remove dry skin, reduce the appearance of pores, and help create a deeper clean. It also helps get rid of some build-ups. It can remove makeup or dirt that has sunk deeper into your skin and is more challenging than your cleanser.

The key here is to exfoliate your skin lightly. If you use an exfoliator that’s not suitable for your skin type, it can harm your skin.

Also, make sure that you’ve gotten used to your exfoliating product. Since exfoliators are a little stronger than usual skincare products, even when they’re light, you might not have enough recovery time for your skin if you start exfoliating too close to your wedding day.

Another procedure that can make your skin look and feel good but isn’t too big of a commitment, the same way injections are, would be facials.

Facials are great for deeper cleansing and more thorough hydration. If you want consistently great skin from facials, do one every three to four weeks. However, what’s great about a facial is that you can complete the facial process one week before your wedding.

Of course, if you want your facials to have a compounding and consistent effect, it is much better to do them months before the wedding. If you’re going to get your facial a week before your wedding, then make sure that you check you’re not doing any deep exfoliating work along with your facials since it’s too close to your wedding day to do that.

Moisturize skin

An essential step of a skincare routine is the moisturizing phase.

No matter how oily or greasy your skin might be, you still need to moisturize it, especially if you exfoliate and cleanse it often. One reason your skin produces that much grease is that it’s overcompensating for the lack of hydration. Using a lighter moisturizer can address the moisture issue without feeling too greasy.

If you have dry skin, some moisturizers, especially those with lighter textures, might not feel like they affect your skin. That’s why getting heavier and thicker moisturizers is crucial for dry skin. Since they are dense, they might take a while to sink into your skin, but they will provide the moisture your skin needs better than lighter moisturizers.

Another unskippable step of your skincare routine should be your sun protection.

Whether rainy, cloudy, or sunny, UV rays are still present. Your sunscreen protects you from these rays, so you should use sunscreen no matter what.

The sun can darken already-dark spots on your face, cause your skin to dry out, and make your wrinkles more pronounced, so sun protection is essential to your skincare routine.

You shouldn’t just use sunscreen on your face. Applying sunscreen is a good idea if these parts of your skin are exposed.

Also, ensure that your sunscreen is at least SPF 15; ideally, it should be SPF 30.

You shouldn’t just apply your skincare routine to your face. Other parts of your body have skin, don’t they? So, they deserve the TLC your face is getting, too.

When applying moisturizers and sunscreens, don’t forget the exposed parts of your skin based on your wedding outfit, too. Your neck, ears, and chest could use some help using your skincare products. You should cleanse, moisturize, and exfoliate your skin outside your face.

Remember that your lips also deserve that love and care when talking about not forgetting your neck and chest.

Some people might think that using generic lip balms is enough, but there are instances when lip balms aren’t helping solve dry lips.

Investing in lip moisturizers is essential. Lip masks are lip products you apply before you sleep. They can deeply moisturize your skin and provide more profound hydrating effects. Also, remember to scrub your lips to remove chapped lips if they’re flaking off.

Beauty sleep

It’s a good idea to get enough sleep and do so not only just before your wedding day.

While it’s understandably hard to do that with all the fuss and excitement around organizing your wedding, it’s still a helpful step. Getting enough sleep can rejuvenate your skin and prevent it from becoming darker under the eyes.

Plus, it will make you mentally healthier when you get restful sleep consistently.

These skincare tips should help you prep your skin before your big day. Apply these tips ideally months before your wedding to get the full effect and the skin that matches how enjoyable your day will be.
