How to get picture-perfect skin for your wedding day
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. So naturally, brides, grooms and other important members of the wedding party want to look their best! This blog will discuss how to get picture-perfect skin for your big day as we cover everything from skincare basics and tips for specific skin problems through to potential prescription-only products to use at home and an overview of clinical procedures.
By following these tips and booking your consultation to plan your best course of skincare action at least 6 months out from the big day, you and your nearest and dearest can have confidence that your skin will look flawless in those all-important wedding photos.
The first step in getting picture-perfect skin is establishing a basic skincare routine. This routine should include cleansing, moisturising, and sunscreen.
Cleansing: It is essential to cleanse your skin every day, both morning and night. This process removes dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin if you wear it. There are many different cleansers available, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. For example, some people prefer a foaming cleanser, while others prefer a cream or gel cleanser.
Moisturising: You should also moisturise your skin daily; This helps keep your skin hydrated and healthy. There are many different types of moisturisers available, so make sure that you choose one that best suits your needs. For example, some people prefer a light moisturiser for daytime use, while others prefer a heavier moisturiser.
Sunscreen: Lastly, you should always use sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. A common misconception is that sunscreen is only essential when spending time outdoors, but people can also use it every day for added protection. There are many different types of sunscreen available, so again you can choose the one that best suits your needs.
Tips for Specific Skin Problems
In addition to following the basic skincare routine, there are some tips you can follow to help treat specific skin problems.
Acne: If you have acne, it is essential to cleanse your skin correctly and avoid touching your face. You should also avoid using harsh or drying products on your skin. Instead, try using a gentle cleanser and an oil-free moisturiser. There are also many acne treatments available, so you can find the one that best fits your needs.
Rosacea: If you have rosacea, it is essential to avoid triggers such as sun exposure, hot weather, and spicy foods. You should also avoid using harsh or drying products on your skin. Instead, try using a gentle cleanser and a moisturiser designed explicitly for rosacea-prone skin. There are also many treatment options available for rosacea, so you can find the one that best suits your needs.
Dry skin: If you have dry skin, it is vital to use a moisturiser daily. You should also avoid using harsh or drying products on your skin. Instead, try using a gentle cleanser and a moisturiser specifically designed for dry skin.
Oily skin: If you have oily skin, it is crucial to cleanse your skin correctly. You should also avoid using too heavy or greasy products on your skin. Instead, try using a gentle cleanser and a light moisturiser.
You can start on the journey to getting picture-perfect skin for your wedding day by following the tips above!

With these simple steps, you can have confidence that your skin will look flawless in all of your wedding photos!

SKIN2 Clinic Treatments
(Redensity-1, Profhilo and Sunekos)
Skin boosters work by increasing the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin. It also works to stimulate the production of collagen, which in turn improves signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. The result is the skin is left looking and feeling firmer. Skin boosters can be used to treat many different skin areas.
Peels are used to treat signs of ageing such as wrinkles but can also have extremely positive results on discoloured skin and scars (most notably on the face). They can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures which make them the perfect addition to your home-based skincare regime and other clinic-based treatments.
At SKIN2 we are also delighted to offer other supplementary treatments which will assist you in your goal of helping you and your bridal party become picture perfect for your big day!
