How to look fabulous on your wedding day

Wedding season is kicking into high gear soon in NYC! Here is our #1 tip for the Big Day!

You don’t want to have a facial for the first time the day before your wedding. Let your skin get used to having the treatment. If you wait until the last minute, you might be allergic to some cream, and suddenly you’re all puffy and broken out. Not a look you want for your wedding!

Here is our fool-proof plan to get you ‘glowing’ as you near the Big Day!

*Facial ‘freshmen’ should find a great esthetician 6 months pre-wedding. If there are specific concerns you want to minimize (blackheads, large pores, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation), discuss them with your esthetician at the 6-month mark. That way, the two of you can work out a good in-spa treatment and complimentary at-home skin care regimen that should have your face in photo-ready form. Many treatments have cumulative effects (like microdermabrasion), so the more time you allow, the more pronounced the results will be. In fact, guests may be wondering if you’re old enough to get married…

*Facials once a month for the six months leading up to the day will keep your skin in shape. But, between appoinments, brides-to-be must do their homework with a nightly cleanser, exfoliator, and moisturizer. Bliss Tip- Try Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk, Laboratoire Remede’s Sweep, and The Youth As We Know It

*Facial ‘regulars’ should schedule their final pre-wedding facial 7-10 days ahead of the big day. Skin will be glowing, but not potential post-facial ‘evidence’ will be showing

*The Best Pre-Wedding Facial-is our Triple Oxygen Treatment The Oxygen is a sure bet for wedding day glow. Bliss Tip- Bliss ‘regulars’ pop in a day or two pre-wedding for an Oxygen Blast which includes a quick fruit acid wash, massage with micellated vitamins, a hydrating hot-towel and enzyme pack, and a five minute oxygen spray in a customized activating solution in 30 minutes (so you still have time to finalize the seating chart for the 16th time).

Here’s to Wedded Bliss!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to blissworld.com My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
