1. Get Professional

Sometimes, things need to be left to the professionals. Several months before the big day, pamper yourself and schedule a few facials to keep your skin refreshed and healthy. Aestheticians will perform extractions to rid dirt and imperfections, as well as circulate blood flow by gently massaging your skin. Luckily, The Spa at Terranea Resort is just 1.5 miles from Wayfarers, so you can schedule a complexion-boosting facial, stat.

2. Fuel Your Body

You hear it all the time – drink water, drink water, drink water! Regardless of having super dry or oily skin, your body craves hydration, which starts from within. Not only can you keep your skin looking its best by gulping 8 glasses of water a day, but can also snack on hydrating superfoods such as cucumbers, grapefruit, watermelon and strawberries.

3. Peel Away Your (Pore)blems

If enlarged pores is a problem you’ve never been able to tackle, have no fear. Add a chemical peel to your skincare routine and watch pores, texture and skin imperfections disappear. These peptide peel pads from Peter Thomas Roth have changed my life, and I started seeing a difference in my skin just after two uses. A more budget friendly option are these rosewater-infused Glow Peel Pads by Pixi, and can be found at everyone’s favorite place, Target!

4. Mask Up!

Target problem areas with face masks. They will penetrate the skin with their natural ingredients further than simply cleansing will do. Find one that suits your needs, keep on for about 20 minutes, and apply every other day for you oily gals and twice a month for those with dry skin.

5. Facial Oils

Keep your skin moisturized and glowing with a facial oil. Even oily complexions can benefit from this trending skincare product, because combatting oil with oil actually regulates oil production. This Noni Glow Face Oil from KORA Organics is good for oily, dry, combination and sensitive skin types and brightens, evens out skin tone and clarifies. Warm a few drops in the palms of your hands and apply all over the face daily. Nourished skin, here you come!

6. Look Like You

On your wedding day, be a blushing bride who looks like a more enhanced version of yourself. Keep it simple with light makeup on your face so nothing looks too cake-y and allows your glowing skin you’ve worked so hard to achieve to shine through. What to pack in your makeup bag: BECCA Velvet Blurring Primer for a face that will stay in place, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation for a medium-coverage base, Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder to set, Glossier Cloud Paint for a natural flush to the cheeks and Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder for a shimmering and affordable glow. Mission accomplished!
