It’s only natural for you to feel a little off your game every now and again. Because not everyone is going to have confidence in abundance at all times. You’ll often find that you go through phases of feeling happy in your skin, and times where you just don’t feel good. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy more of the former and less of the latter? Because every body is beautiful – no matter what it looks like. You only get one, so it’s best to make the most of it. You can choose to feel bad about yourself, or you can choose to celebrate what you’ve got and really make the most of it. So, to help you do that, let’s take a look at the treatments that are going to transform the way you feel.
In the run-up to your wedding, you’ve got a lot to do. By now, you should have the foundation of your day planned out, including everything from the venue to the entertainment. But even when you have some of the bigger plans in place, there’s always a few things that can crop up before the big day arrives. One of those that you always need to remember is your beauty preparations. Because not only do you want to look good when you get married, you’re going to want your beauty prep to last for the honeymoon too. So, here are a few steps you can prioritize to tackle both birds with one stone.
Essential Beauty Prep for the Lovely Bride
First of all, you might like to think about getting a facial or a few. You’re going to want to make sure that your skin is prepped and looking as good as it can before you walk down that aisle. Although you may not be able to control stress that leads you to break out, a course of facials should keep your skin looking great. And because you need a great base for your makeup, it should be a non-negotiable beauty prep step.
Makeup Trial before the Big Day
Then, you’re also going to want to make sure that you get your makeup trial scheduled in. Not everyone likes to have their makeup done by someone else, so it’s important that you can find a person that you’re happy with. It may take you a while to find the right makeup artist, so you need to schedule in trials. That way, you can be confident that you’ve made the right choice and that you can agree on the look you want.
After makeup, you’ve also got your hair to plan too. This may be something that you do with your bridesmaids to make sure that you all have hairstyles that work with your dresses and the style of the wedding. For this, you may want to get some tape in hair extensions that can give you more length or volume to style with. You should also look for lots of different inspiration online so you can determine whether you want your hair up or down, straight or curly, or with any accessories.
Even if you don’t usually tan, you may want to think about getting a little glow before the big day. It can help you to look healthy and give your skin a radiant boost too. There are lots of different pre-wedding tanning options that you could consider, so you need to decide on a style that you’ll be most comfortable with, and a color that feels most natural to you too.
And of course, you’re going to want to get your nails seen to. Every bride wants to have a beautiful manicure on her big day. Whether you choose to go with something natural or a statement color, be sure to book in as close to your wedding as possible. Plus, you may want to go for a pedicure too, especially for your honeymoon.
Apart from the birth of your first child (and seeing The Rolling Stones at Glastonbury from the side of the stage!), this is going to be the biggest day of your life. You know this already, though, That’s why you’ve been stressing out for the entire six-month wedding countdown and frantically reading wedding blogs to make sure have got everything in place. It can be overwhelming.
When you love beauty; trying new treatments, looking and feeling good there’s always a buzz in the air as soon as summer comes around. Of course, we all love the warmer months, longer days and lighter nights but when it comes to beauty, summer offers us something else entirely. We get to shake up our hairstyles, go breezy with the makeup, and have fabulous treatments that make our beauty routines even easier.
If you’re wondering what treatments you should be trying to get yourself summer beauty ready, or what steps you should take to feel your more beautiful self, here are seven that you do not want to miss.
1. Hydrating Facial
The first thing that you’re going to want to do is to focus on your skin. You may not notice it at first, but as soon as the weather warms up, we all get just that little bit more dehydrated in life. So not only do you have to drink more water during the summer months to keep your body happy and healthy, you have to pay a little more attention to your skin. Keeping up with your moisturizing routine is always good, but you might want to go that little bit further and apply a homemade hydrating face mask every week, just to make sure your skin is getting the care it needs.
Even if you manage to go every single winter without shaving your legs (lucky you!), come summer, it’s one of those every other daily chore, or sometimes daily) that we all hate. But, if you have super fast growing hair or dark hair, you might want to rethink that daily shower situation and opt for monthly waxes instead. If you get the right therapist, you’re going to walk away with super smooth legs and baby-soft skin.
One way to help with that hair situation is to make sure that you exfoliate. It may not be something that you prioritize, at least when it comes to your body anyway, but during the summer months, it can be a beauty savior. When you exfoliate your body, you get rid of dead skin cells that can make your skin look dry and dull. You’re also ensuring that your wax lasts that little bit longer and the same goes for your tan – natural or otherwise. So, whether you choose to exfoliate with or without a scrub, you’re going to want to do this once or twice a week so benefits from healthy skin.
4. Hair Cut
Then there’s that all-important summer trim to think about. After winter, we can often be left with dry, dull looking locks. To make sure that they shine in time for winter, you’re not only going to want to up your conditioning and treatment game; you need to get all those dead and dry ends snipped off. Whether you opt for that simple trim or a complete restyle, you’ll feel like an entirely different person by the time you step out of the salon this summer.
5. Teeth Whitening
We all want a smile that we’re proud of. As a teen, if you went through that awkward, painful stage of wearing braces, you didn’t just do that to let your teeth go as you grow. Oh no. Especially if you’ve had braces regularly. Instead, you’re going to want to make sure that you not only keep on top of your oral health but that your teeth shine nice and white too. Whether you opt for professional whitening or use the incredible invention of charcoal toothpaste to get your smile up to scratch, summer is the perfect time to do it.
6. Spray Tan
When the weather warms up, and we all start to wear lighter layers and shorter lengths, we all want a nice tan to show off. You might not be hitting the beach anytime soon, but there are no reasons that you can’t look like you have. So, head to the salon and book in for a spray tan. That way, when you are wearing shorts and shorter tops, you’ll feel beach ready already.
Isn’t it the dream to have flawless makeup all day, every day? If only we could wake up with a full face and get on with our day, it would save us a lot of time, right? Well, there is a kinda way that you can. Semi-permanent makeup solutions, like micro-blading, give you beautiful eyebrows from the second you wake up. So if you want to go on vacation completely makeup free and still feel good, micro-blading is the answer.
Have fun with your summer beauty fixes.
One of natures’ most craved for luxuries that occur abundantly and is freely given is sunbathing and if you visit the beach at the beginning of summer you will realize just how much people had missed the bright sunshine. Apart from the glow and warmth, the human body appears to send a signal about deficiencies that the rays from the sun need to replenish and restore.
Tanning is a process in which the skin color is darkened and is most often the result of getting exposed to ultraviolet rays coming from the sun. People who choose to tan their skin by exposing it to the sun engage in sunbathing. Apart from the sun, there are artificial sources like the tanning lamp or chemical products, both of which can change the color of the skin.
