Isn’t it true that weddings are once in a lifetime event? And, you must want to make it as special and memorable as you have always dreamt of.

In between the many preparations, it can be easy to forget ourselves until the last few weeks before the wedding. It is important that you must not forget that this is your day.

The cost of your wedding when you dream about it as you grow up never comes into your mind, you just know what you want. It is a good idea to book a consultation with your skin therapist to get an idea of the costs involved with your skin care plan and budget it into the overall total.


Why Self Skin Care Is Important?

Here is the importance of self skincare: 

Boosts confidence: Self-love is crucial for feeling confident. If we do not feel confident and happy about how we look on our special day, then all other preparations don’t matter. 

To get a flawless makeup look:  Your skin is the canvas on which you paint your makeup on. Your skin is an essential part and to get perfect makeup, one needs to have a clear face. Face having dark spots, open pores, fine line, and many such skin problems, can cause make up to look patchy and uneven. You want to go for a dewy look rather than having to cake your make up to hide flaws in the skin.. Having clear skin to start with can do wonders for your makeup and really work to enhance your already beautiful natural features.

Protecting skin from harsh weather: Making skin look fresh, healthy, and flawless, is not an easy task to do in such a polluted world. So if you want to get started with a skincare routine, then you are on the right track. Start using some forms of barrier creams to help protect your skin from harmful pollutants which can clog your pores or cause outbreaks. If you live in a city our go to product for city dwellers is the AlumierMD AGE serum designed to help block the damaging effects that the particulate matter form pollution has on your skin.


Treatments For Your Skin Care

Like everything in life, results things take time. Your skin isn’t going to become radiant and glowing overnight and we’re also sorry to tell you that you won’t get those washboard abs after one evening in the gym. Skincare takes consistent time and effort.

It is advised to start treating your skin for a year before the wedding. Also, if you want that radiance look on your big day, try these amazing skin treatments.


Venus Freeze

If you’re dealing with wrinkled and pigmented skin, Venus Freeze is your go to treatment! 

Opposite to what the name suggests , the procedure will give you a warm feeling during the process. Being a Radio Frequency combined with pulsed magnetic fields, Venus Freeze is one of the best treatments on the market for fat and cellulite reduction. 


Benefits of Venus Freeze: 

Removes fine lines 

Reduces wrinkles

Lightens pigmentation 

Tightens skin 



Usually, this procedure takes 30 – 40 minutes. It can be used to treat face, neck and other body parts, mostly hips, buttocks, and thighs. The Pulse magnetic fields help to increase the blood circulation, which in turn will carry more oxygen to cells and will help to rejuvenate and nourish the skin. Also, it helps to clear out any waste. 

The other major component used in the treatment – the Radio Frequency – helps in the production of collagen and elastin in the body. These components help in skin tightening and prevent our skin from becoming loose and saggy. It makes sure that your skin looks firm on your wedding day.


Reviv Genetics

Reviv Genetics is a fantastic new way of genetic testing, which is 99.97% accurate. Genetic testing can tell you about your skin efficiency and skin type so you know exactly what it needs to look it’s best. No more guesswork, just results! 


How Reviv Genetics Works?

The procedure starts by collecting your DNA sample, which is then sent to a lab for testing. After this, you’ll get a personalized report. 

Within this report it will be able to tell you exactly what your skin is lacking in and what it works best with it too. It’s extremely powerful to have this information as this is one of the most effective ways to treat your skin.

The main areas that Reviv Genetics focuses in on are; 

Collagen: It’s one of the vital proteins for our skin as it helps to provide structural support to our skin tissues. It ensures the elasticity of our skin. It also has a crucial role in boosting our skin to make it look radiant. 

Skin Antioxidants:  Antioxidants play a vital role in the rejuvenation process of our skin. They help our skin to get a cure on its own. It enhances the self-healing quality of our skin.

Melanin: It is the cell that helps the skin to be pigmentation-free. Pigmentation is a disorder where skin color starts to change and makes the skin look uneven. Melanin protects the skin from UV-Rays, which can harm the skin severely. 


Keratosis Pilaris (Chicken Skin) Treatment

Keratosis Pilaris is a skin condition that causes our skin to look like the skin of a chicken. It makes one’s skin rough and dry with tiny bumps & rough patches. This condition can be hectic for those brides who are planning to wear backless dresses at their wedding. This condition can be easily treated and if the correct skincare is adhered to there will be no evidence of any bumps on your big day.

Dry skin body brushing can be quite an effective way to treat this condition. These body brushes will help to increase the microcirculation in the skin, aid lymphatic drainage and gently exfoliate at the same time. Try to avoid using any harsh scrubs as these can often cause inflammation and make things worse. 

Watch what you eat. If you’re lacking in Vitamin A it might be worth your while to consider increasing it. If your body is lacking in Vitamin A it can cause your skin to become keratinised and scaly which can lead to Keratosis Pilaris. Make sure that you are also getting some omega 3 oils into your system too. These work wonders as they act as an anti inflammatory and moisturise the skin from the inside out.
