Feeling good in your own skin is vital in the months leading up to your wedding.
Rather than just being about beauty per se, it is also about creating a feeling of holistic wellness within your entire body. If you feel serene internally you will feel good physically resulting in an overall radiance on your wedding day.
We are big advocates of having spa days at home, for many reasons. The most important of which is having a personal ritual of your very own that allows you to wash your busy day off your skin and get into the mood for all that wedding planning. Having an effective and affordable arsenal beauty products is essential for your pre-wedding wellbeing because you can use them your way . This also allows you to avoid the hassle and expense of professional salons.So without further ado, here’s a glowdown of how to get the best skin of your life on your wedding day:
Is there any scent in the world as calming as lavender? The purifying properties of lavender is known to soothe fussy skin. One spray of Clay Skin Treats Lavender Mist is enough to calm your pre wedding jitters and keep insomnia at bay.
Ruby hued Hibiscus tea is not just pretty to look at. Hibiscus tea can potentially speed up your metabolism and help with weight loss if combined with a sensible eating plan and regular work outs. Another reason to drink Hibiscus tea is because it is known to be rich in antioxidants, vitamins c and minerals. The Hibiscus tea from Organic Life Tea is one of our favourites because of its versatility as a both a hot tea infusion as well as as an iced tea on a hot day.
Oh how we love aromatherapy! We are addicted to how this heavenly infusion of Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Orange, Patchouli, Bergamot and Tangerine essential oils in this balm are able to trick us into thinking we are lying in a spa in a five star resort in the mountains.
Not only do these candles have the most stunning floral packaging, they smell like the most glorious of bridal bouquets. We personally like to light a bunch of these and soak in our bathtubs for a good half hour at the end of a busy day.
Apart from feeling luxurious, Pure Silk Pillow Cases are handy in the war against wrinkles and fine lines by preventing friction. They are also less absorbent than cotton pillowcases. This means that your nighttime beauty treatments remain on your face instead of staining your pillow.
Your feet deserve pampering for all the hard work they do! Peppermint is invigorating, revitalizing and soothing for your muscles. Trust us when we tell you that Lily’s Bath and Beauty Products Mini Peppermint Foot Soak is like an Americano for your feet.
We found the mother of all body scrubs in Bath Bliss’s Murumuru Body Scrub. Not only is it fun to use but it removes dead and flaking skin really rapidly. Follow up with a body butter of choice for celestial skin.
