5 things you need to do before the big day play

Gorgeous skin


Apart from having a perfect dress, shoes and al those other good stuff, you should also aim for enviably smooth and clear skin.

Not only will your MUA thank you because she would not have to use a lot of products covering up blemishes, your body will and you will be the envy of everyone at your wedding which is the way it should be.

In order to get this, you have to put in the work and adopt these skin care habits recommended by Dr. Jill Waibel, founder of Miami Dermatology & Laser Institute.

  1. Maintain a healthy, balanced diet- This goes without saying because your skin is a reflection of what you eat. Dr. Jill says, “maintaining a healthy diet will suit you well when trying to accomplish freshly toned and flawless skin. "Fruits like berries and pomegranates contain antioxidants that help fight off free radicals, which have been linked to causing a number of skin issues including wrinkling and sagging. Stay away from sugary foods as excess sugar can lead to unwanted wrinkles and lines on the face.” Try incorporating things like almonds, walnuts, green tea, sardines, olive oil, oatmeal, they do wonders for the skin.5 things you need to do before the big day

  2. Drink lots of water- “Drinking water is one of the most important parts of a healthy diet and it is the easiest way to keep skin hydrated and healthy,” Jill says. “Dehydration can have many unflattering effects on your skin as it can cause skin to feel dry, tight, and flaky and can cause any wrinkle or fold in the skin to be more prominent. Water can help replenish your skin, giving you a soft, healthy glow.”

  3. Have a daily skincare routine- “Always start your day with a gentle cleanser and apply the most active ingredients first, like Vitamin C + E, and follow with a sunscreen–SPF 15 or higher–and finish with a moisturizer,” Jill says. “To keep your skin moisturized, I recommend using Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion and oils like Neutrogena Sesame Oil or Bio Oil. Always wash your face each night before bed to help keep pores clean and exfoliate twice a week to rid skin of any excess dirt and oil.”

  4. Sleep- “Try and get an adequate amount of sleep each night, as your body needs sleep to turn over new cells that help refresh your skin, further helping your appearance,” Jill says.5 things you need to do before the big day

  5. Befriend a dermatologist- “Great skin doesn’t happen overnight–it’s a process that involves a commitment to healthy habits, dedication to skincare products and routines, and loyalty to skin care doctors,” says Jill. “The prettiest patients I see come through my office are those that I see frequently throughout the year. They supplement their in-office procedures with great products that are used daily in their skincare routine, including SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Acid, which is a serum that helps build collagen while simultaneously fighting the effects of photoaging. The combination of committing to a dermatologist to help keep their appearance at its height and committing to a skincare routine made of great products helps keep these patients’ skin in the best shape possible, while receiving the best care possible.”
