Many of our clients who are getting married this year want to know what kind of beauty timeline they should be following to feel their best on the big day. Depending on the products, tools, and procedures you’re planning to utilize, your timeline will be a bit different.
But here’s some information to help you plan when to do what before your wedding.
Laser hair removal: If you’re planning to start laser hair removal, the sooner the better! You’ll need 4-6 weeks between sessions, and most people require 6-10 treatments.
Botox®: Before your big day, you might be considering touching up your face with Botox® to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and improve the look and feel of your skin. Two months before your wedding is a good time to start. Results may take a few days to kick in and last a few months. If you do this with two months to go, you’ll give yourself to address any changes you want to make, and it’s not advised to try something new RIGHT before your wedding.
Exfoliation: About two weeks before your wedding is a good time to start an exfoliating regime. Do this two to three times a week and you’ll have the fresh, glowing skin you always dreamed of for your wedding day. The Vivier Vitamin C Scrub is one of our favourite options. This revitalizing face and body scrub gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling soft, toned and vibrant.
Waxing: Brides and grooms are advised to get waxing or sugaring five days before the wedding. This ensures the results are fresh but that your skin also has time to heal and minimize any resulting redness.
Peel: If you’re planning on an at-home or spa facial, give yourself three days before your wedding and be sure to read the instructions carefully in case they advise giving yourself even more time. We love the ZO Skin Health Enzymatic Peel. This at-home peel contains papain and bromelain enzymes and glycolic acid (AHA) to provide enzymatic and chemical exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and provide cellular turnover.
