Organising a wedding can be hectic, but don’t forget to pamper and preen before the big day. Plan your beauty treatments months in advance and feel fabulous as your walk down the aisle.
Here are five procedures that will help you tie the knot – in style:
Does your skin look dull, dry and lifeless? If so, a chemical peel could be just what you need. This non-surgical treatment is available at many clinics across the UK and will leave you with a soft, smooth complexion. It offers a deep form of exfoliation – which should help your skin to dazzle and shine – and can cure a number of ailments such as spots, acne and other blemishes.
Microdermabrasion polishes the top layer of the skin and can treat wrinkles, pigmentation problems, scarring and sun damage. It promotes the growth of healthy new cells and helps to stimulate collagen production – giving you a healthy, pre-wedding glow. A radiant complexion is vital on your wedding day, so book this treatment two weeks before the celebrations begin and look your best as you greet your family and friends.
What would a wedding be without that first smooch? It’s your first big moment as man and wife, so make sure you have got plump, kissable lips. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can give you the pout you’ve been longing for – though leave time for the swelling to go down. Don’t like needles? Then try adding a few drops of peppermint oil to you lip gloss like Mariah Cary. According to Glamour Magazine, the star relies on mint to perfect her pout – who knew?
Laser hair removal
Tired of shaving? Fed up of waxing? Then give laser hair removal a go. This ‘lunchtime treatment’ removes hair follicles at the root and has been shown to permanently reduce re-growth. It can remove stubborn stubble from most parts of the body and is a great alternative to other monotonous hair removal techniques. It only kills hairs in the active growth stage of the hair cycle, however, so book a course of treatments in good time.
Cosmetic surgery is popular in the UK, but you don’t have to go under the knife to look younger than your years. Treatments such as Botox get rid of lines and wrinkles and will leave you with a smooth, youthful appearance. Like dermal fillers, it’s injected into the skin using thin needles and relaxes the muscles which cause lines. It takes three to seven days to see results, however, so book a procedure around one week in advance.
Getting married is an extremely exciting time for anyone, so enjoy a well-deserved makeover.
