Want perfect skin in a hurry? Did the global pandemic mess with your wedding skincare plans? Perfection may not be achievable in a very short space of time but there is lots you can do to make sure you are radiant on your big day…
CARLY’S TOP TIPS
USE CARLY ’ S TOP TIPS TO HELP (EVEN WITH A FEW SHORT WEEKS TO GO) – HERE’S HOW;
- Increase your water intake to around 2-3 litres per day. Hydrated skin cells will ensure your skin’s barrier is functioning adequately, preventing pimples, blemishes, darkness and wrinkles.
- Add a hyaluronic acid based serum, ideally with a low molecular weight or multi-weight hyaluronic acid. Water will be attracted to these molecules ensuring skin is remaining hydrated from all the water you are drinking.
- Increase cell turnover by gently adding an AHA to your night routine. I prefer lactic acid as the molecule is larger, remaining nearer the surface – really brightening, hydrating and gently sloughing the dead cells hanging on to the surface. Look for a serum base with additional healing properties.
- No time for a facial? Invest in a crystal fiber mask. These latest generation masks are designed to enhance the cell renewal process, restructure the hydrolipid layer and increase hydration. Use the evening before your big day – relax for at least 30 minutes for it to take full effect, before massaging in any remaining serum and get plenty of beauty sleep.
