According to some surveys, more and more brides-to-be are starting to add a new expense to their wedding budget in an attempt to look fantastic when they tie the knot: bridalplasty. This is the term now given to pre-wedding cosmetic procedures and surgery as women worry about how they will look on their big day, and includes such treatments as botox, microdermabrasion, dermal rollers and even surgery…
All this can be rather expensive and quite a drastic approach to pre-wedding skincare, especially when fantastic results can be achieved by taking a good look at your regular skincare routine at least six months before you have to walk down the aisle.
- Boost your cleansing routine with a precleanser to make sure you are removing excess oils and debris and getting deep down into the pores to get rid of any impurities.
- If you have a tendency to suffer from breakouts of blemishes start to use Dermalogica’s Sebum Clearing Masque two to three times a week. This masque purifies the skin, absorbs excess oil, inhibits sebum production and eliminates bacteria: perfect for acne-prone skin!
- If you don’t already, start to use an exfoliator on a regular basis. This will remove dull and dead skin cells, improving tone and texture, and leaving the skin radiant and ready to be moisturised.
- Moisturising is essential for a healthy complexion, so make sure you are using a good moisturiser like Active Moist or Skin Smoothing Cream. Dehydrated skin will look dull and parched, with fine lines becoming more apparent. Regular moisturising will leave the skin soft, smooth and plump.
So, forget bridalplasty; instead, stock up on the Dermalogica products that will help your complexion look its best, and give your skin some good old TLC!
