A bride can feel really stressed out from all the wedding planning and dress fittings. To help alleviate those stresses and make a bride look her best for her wedding, she should indulge in these beauty treatments .
Good Daily Skincare Regime
For brides to get their skin in flawless condition, their daily skin regime should consist of:
Consider exfoliating your skin at least twice a week to reveal younger skin.
Sleekly’s recommendations for:
Body Scrub and Massage
A body scrub or body wrap will give the entire body a gorgeous glow while a massage will alleviate last-minute stress and help the bride unwind before her big day.
Body scrubs rely on natural exfoliants, such as brown sugar, sea salt, and oatmeal, to gently polish away old layers and reveal the radiant skin beneath. A body wrap, where technicians cocoon you in steamy layers of linen and ointment, will provide total-body relaxation and optimal skin pampering. They should also work on the elbows and knees, which are some of the driest parts of the body. One of the best massages for brides is the Hot Stone Massage, which uses hot stones to improve energy flow and soothe muscle tension.
If you prefer to do it at home, J.R. Watkins Sugar & Shea Body Scrub (with coconut, milk & honey) may be your best option.
Many brides opt for a dress that reveals part of their back or most of their back. Then, they realize that the spotlight will be on their upper body.
To get rid of “backne” or remove back blemishes, opt for a back facial. A back facial consists of luxurious steam cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction treatments that will leave the back feeling smooth and flawless. Like any facial, a back facial should be done at least a week before the wedding, allowing time for any redness and swelling to go down.
Glossy Hair Treatment
Whether you’ll have an up-do, down-do, or half-up-half-down-do your hair will need to look its best for the big day.
A gloss hair treatment is the best way to get gorgeous, gleaming hair. The treatment will start with a shampoo and head massage. A nutrient-packed cool gel is applied to your hair to enhance its natural sheen, which will result in glossy and manageable hair that will look great down or twisted into an intricate up-do. For maximum results, get your gloss treatment five days before the wedding.
If you don’t want to pay for the glossy hair treatment, opt for a DIY hot oil treatment, which can get you the same results. Perform a hot oil treatment on your hair once or twice a week at least a month in advance and you’ll be ready to go for the big day.
Pedicure. A pedicure usually involves a warm salt soak for your feet, followed by a pressure-point foot massage. The foot massage is a great way to combat pre-wedding stress. After the reflexology session, your nails are polished and painted until they resemble 10 tiny jewels. Pedicures from reputable salons tend to last, so you can schedule your pedicure a maximum of four days before the wedding.
Manicure. A manicure is similar to the pedicure in that your hands will receive a massage and then your nails will be painted. However, in addition to the manicure, ask for a paraffin wax treatment too. The manicurist will dip your hands into clear, warm wax and place them into heated gloves. The gentle heat and wax work together to smooth your skin and seal in moisture, so your hands feel as good as they look. For gorgeous, chip-free nails, it’s best to get your manicure the day before or the morning of your wedding.
