If you’re attending a wedding this winter, or are maybe the one getting married, it’s likely that skincare will be one major thing on your mind as everyone wants perfect skin in wedding photos. Cold weather presents it’s own set of problems when it comes to taking care of your skin, so we’ve put together a guide to help you choose the right products for keeping your skin in fabulous condition for the upcoming nuptuals:
Cold weather, central heating and dark days can have a truly dulling effect on the skin, leaving the skin lacking luminescence, so using a product to enhance your brightness is essential before a big occasion. These sheet masks from Decleor refresh, hydrate and brighten dull and pigmented skin types using peony, tamarisk and liquorice extract. Your skin will glow after using these masks!
If you have problematic skin, then you’ll want to get it under control before the wedding. Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque is an all-in-one treatment that detoxifies, brightens and invigorates your skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and will leave your complexion clear, balanced and bright.
Not only does this rich moisturiser replenish the hydration within your skin, it also encorages lipid production, which improves your skin in the long term, too. It performs a number of functions, such as balancing the skin, offering a protective layer and preventing dryness and tighness, making it the perfect product to use in the winter months.
Keeping your face clean is essential, but if your skin is dry or sensitised because of the cold it can be hard to find a cleanser which doesn’t exacerbate things. This cleansing wash from Elemis is made for skin which is dry and sensitised and replaces soap with its high grade proteins to cleanse without harshness. It maintains a perfect pH balance of the skin and can even be used on intimate areas, as well as your face!
It’s not just your face which can suffer with dryness in the winter months – your body can suffer too, after spending days on end wrapped in warm clothes. If your outfit reveals a bit of skin, you want that skin looking perfect, so give it a layer of this nourishing body milk from Decleor. It envelops the skin in a protective and comforting layer of moisture to reduce feelings of discomfort, tightness and roughness.
