On the day the bride is the center of attention. Naturally the bride wants to look her best.
Cosmetic Dermatologist, Ranella Hirsch, M.D., says
brides need to consider how they want to achieve that “perfect” look. Some women want superficial treatments, like facials, while others opt for more intensive therapies, like chemical peels, BOTOX injections or laser resurfacing. It can take time for some skin treatments to reach their peak effects, or for the side effects of some therapies to diminish. So brides need to start thinking about their skin care needs several months before the wedding. She recommends seeing a dermatologist or skin care specialist right after the engagement. That also gives the bride time to start a good skin care routine that will help maintain her good looks long after the wedding.
Brides can avaoid the stress levels before the all important day by seeking to find the best and most natural skin care available.
Wedding planning is not just for brides. Bridesmaids and mothers of the brides, groomsmen and all attending the wedding can also benefit from planning and starting a good skin care routine before the big day.
