Bridal Skin Care

First, I'd like to welcome our new Team member, Angelica: The Visual Artist Studios Make Up Artist and Stylist.  In this installment Angelica (who is a Licensed Nurse, Interior Designer, Entrepreneur, Make Up Artist [MUA] and Stylist) put together some key points for our wonderful Brides pre-wedding skin care (that's also useful as a daily habit as well).

To our Brides, not only will you receive the Best in Fine Art Wedding Portraiture, but you'll benefit from having a MUA/Stylist available on your day to ensure you look radiant and fabulous!

Below are a few daily skin care tips for our Beautiful Brides. We want our Brides to glow from the inside out.

Drink a glass of warm water with lemon upon waking each morning. Try to stay away from coffee and sugar. Hot or iced green tea sweetened with stevia throughout the day is a great alternative to coffee or sugary drinks. Incorporate as many raw or steamed vegetables as possible to each meal. Add veggies to everything! (veggie omelets, chopped salads, or you can just juice them).

Here is a list of skincare products that I use and recommend. Some are a little pricey but worth it: 

  • Cetaphil cleanser (Target) AM/PM

The following can be found at www.dermstore.com

  • Elta MD physical sunscreen
  • Skin Ceuticals C E Feruic Acid - AM before sunscreen
  • Neocutis Bio Serum Intensive - PM after cleansing
  • Nia 24 Intensive Recovery Complex - PM after serum

Avoid any harsh scrubs or chemicals in the days leading to wedding. Retin- A is amazing but I wouldn't recommend it until after the wedding because it will cause some peeling and redness. Get as much sleep as you can and be good to yourself. Delegate as much as you can and enjoy the beautiful moments leading up to your special day.

XOXO,

Angelica
