The Secret to Your Best Bridal Skin
According to Perth’s best Wedding Makeup Artist, Connor Adams!
What’s the numero uno accessory you absolutely NEED on your wedding day? Glowing skin of course!
We know you most likely have your dress, flowers, venue and wine list covered, but have you thought about your skin and how you’re going to prep it for your walk-down-the-aisle moment?
A radiant, blemish-free complexion really is the best accessory you can wear on your big day. Not even the shoes can compete with that! Which is why it is always totally worth putting extra time and effort into your skin leading up to your I do’s. The more time you have to get your bridal glow on, the better. We usually recommend starting on a in-clinic and home treatment plan at least 3-6 months prior to game day, especially for more complex skin concerns.
BUT if the timeline is tight and the wedding planning has taken over (hello stress breakouts), there are still some absolute gamechangers that you can implement in the week before your big day for that glowing complexion!

4 TIPS FOR PREPPING YOUR SKIN FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
1. Get a boost of inner wellness with Multivitamin IV infusion (the best of the best)
I highly recommend having this amazing liquid gold pumped into your veins as it helps to reduce inflammation, which can reflect in skin. On top of that, it’s great for preventing sickness for the happy couple the week of the wedding and also helps with a great night's sleep - we all know if we don't get our beauty sleep we can look and feel like a train wreck!
SC PRO TIP: What Connor said! Booking in for a ‘The Lot’ Nutritional IV a week before your big day will have you glowing from the inside out. Not only will your skin be vibrant, but the added boost of minerals, electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants will help keep you healthy and well during the busy pre-wedding week.
2. Book in for a pre-wedding HydraGLOW Facial
A couple of days before the wedding I highly recommend a HydraGLOW Facial to help exfoliate the skin and eliminate any remaining texture. There is no downtime with this treatment and it also helps the makeup to sit beautifully on the skin.
SC PRO TIP: For an even smoother canvas, try Dermaplaning. This treatment not only removes dead skin build up and renews the skin cells, but gets rid of the peach fuzz hair on the surface of your skin. The result is skin as smooth as a baby’s bum!
3. Use a Hydrating Sheet Mask the night before
Applying a hydrating Face Mask the night before the wedding is my absolute favourite tip to make your skin silky and glowing! It also forces the bride to relax and unwind the night before her wedding.
4. Switch to a silk pillowcase
Changing your pillow case from cotton to 100% silk will instantly make a massive difference to your skin. Not only is it anti-ageing, with silk helping to stop wrinkles forming on your skin, it also settles acne and stops rouge zits from appearing. A silk pillowcase will also keep curly frizzy hair smooth and prevent hair from breaking.
SC PRO TIP: Make sure you are washing your pillowcase every 5-7 days to help keep acne-causing bacteria away.
