Investing in regular maintenance facials can go a long way in creating that ‘lit-from-within’ bridal glow. Modern day treatments go beyond massaging in a face oil which, let’s be honest, we can do in the comfort of our bathrooms. Instead, you’ll find that the best facials incorporate either sophisticated technology such as LED light and microcurrent, clever massage techniques to carve out cheekbones without any invasive procedures, a sensorial touch to keep calm frazzled minds, or a combination of all three underscored with hard-hitting skincare.
While it’s tempting to book in a treatment a few days before your wedding for a pick-me-up, make sure you only do so if you’ve had the facial before, so there’s low risk of unwanted reactions, says A-list facialist, Teresa Tarmey. At this stage, your facialist should have provided an at-home skincare plan to get the glow going. Ideally, your final facial (one that you know your skin loves) should be a week ahead, says Thomas. The day of, she recommends reaching for a hydrating and soothing face mask.
