Non-invasive beauty treatments for brides
I always say, be natural, be yourself. And with this blog, I’m not going to tell you to run off to the nearest surgeon with a wodge of cash and an overnight bag. But there are a few beauty treatments available which are really effective and safe and will help you look and feel your best on your wedding day.
My only advice would be, trial these treatments well in advance. I’m talking weeks, possibly months, so you can get used to the results and rule out any possible reactions.
Okay, lets go …
Dermaplaning is deep exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells and those fuzzy hairs on your face. So …shaving your face …with a surgical scalpel! Sounds weird, but it’s totally safe and when you see the results you’ll be amazed. Say goodbye to fine lines, dullness and spots and hello to baby soft, fuzz-free skin which glows. Give this one a test well in advance and please avoid it if you have highly sensitive skin or acne. If that’s you, fear not and read on!
You don’t have to choose from a list of fixed facial treatments, especially if you have sensitive skin which needs special care. Find an amazing beauty therapist, tell them all of your concerns and let them tailor a facial for you. Have a few sessions before the big day. That way, they can target your problem areas over the weeks or months before your wedding. I know what it’s like to have skin issues. It’s the reason I became a makeup artist, and I cannot recommend a regular facial highly enough.
If you’re not blessed with a beautiful brow with a killer arch, and your fed up of pencilling – microblading will rock your world. Unlike tattooing, which is essentially adding a block of colour, fine incisions are made to the top layer of your skin and then pigment is added to create the illusion of real hairs. It’s a semi-permanent treatment which has been around for thousands of years, and it’s totally safe. On your wedding day, when you’re hot and distracted, knowing your brows are on fleek will be one less thing to worry about.
It’s sometimes called microneedling or dermastamping, and it’s a procedure which uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen and elastin. Dermarolling is great for treating fine lines, pores, acne scars and promoting plumper and more radiant skin. Give it a Google and you’ll see lots of home kits available. But dermarolling performed in clinics is a totally different thing altogether. See a professional if you’re thinking of trying this for the first time.
High gloss hair
Don’t neglect your locks. Treat your hair to a glossing treatment for shine, richness, vibrancy and volume. Here’s the science bit! A traditional hair dye opens up the hair shaft, removes natural hair pigments and stains the hair with a new colour. But glosses work in a different way in that it doesn’t open up the hair shaft at all. It closes the hair up super tight giving it a smoother, silkier texture which reflects the light. Tad dah! Again, there are products you can use at home but certainly for your first try, treat yourself to a trip to a really good salon.
I’m not a beauty treatment expert. Make up is my love. So, please please do your research, ask your friends for recommendations and trial any of these treatments well in advance of your wedding day.
