Whether you’re walking down the aisle for the first time or renewing your vows you deserve to look like the most beautiful you on your wedding day.
As we get older our beauty needs change so today we’re talking about some tips to achieve that flawless makeup look for your wedding day as well as use everyday beyond.
As we begin to age (especially when we get into our 40’s) our skin becomes thinner, dulling our complexion and as we get closer to menopause our estrogen levels begin to diminish which in turn makes our skin drier. Even if you’ve never had a regular skincare routine it doesn’t mean you can’t start now and see fantastic visible results.
So where do you start?
“It can be a little frustrating because you want to see the effects of your treatments immediately. Maybe you invested a lot of money in it, or you’re putting a lot of time. You really want to see immediate results, but remember it took a long time for your skin to get to this point. So, you have to be patient and give these things time to work. It really does take a few months, maybe three or four months for most products to really see the most benefit.” Dr. Melissa Piliang/Cleveland Clinic
Cleansing daily with a hydrating cleanser that matches your skin type. We recommend twice daily, morning and at bed time making sure you wash the day’s makeup and pollutants away.
Follow your nighttime cleansing with some overnight skin and eye therapy fortified with retinol, a derivative of vitamin A and/or vitamin C to reduce those fine lines. Note: If your skin is sensitive choose a milder formula with retinol palmitate.
Don’t forget the neck and decollate! Your wedding dress will not doubt reveal a little (or a lot) of this neglected and often overlooked part of your body. This thinner and fragile skin requires some extra special care. Try using a gentle facial scrub once or twice a week and moisturize twice a day when you apply or remove your makeup. This will help ensure a photo perfect finish
Protection & Prevention
A good product to start with may already be in your medicine cabinet, sunscreen. Now more than ever we need to focus on hydrating and protecting our skin, moisturizing and using sunscreen with an spf of 30+ is absolutely essential everyday!
“There are studies that have shown that women who used a broad-spectrum sunscreen on their face every day for a year looked younger at the end of that year. And these women were compared to women who didn’t use the sunscreen, and they looked older at the end of the year. So, if you want to look younger, prevention is key. Use your sunscreen!” Dr. Melissa Piliang/Cleveland Clinic
No matter what your skin type is—oily, dry, normal or a combo— it craves water. Foods such as oily fish, sweet potatoes, avocado, nuts and seeds also offer skin boosting benefits. Bonus tip! Choose hydrating formula foundation for daily wear. Other habits and food choices to consider changing or moderating for the health of your skin are caffeine, sugars and alcohol and salty snacks. Looking for super foods for your skin face? Try grapefruit, cucumbers, tomatoes and kale.
