As a make-up artist, I can’t stress how important skincare is. I work with brides almost every weekend, and the women who have the most glowing complexion are those who follow a good skin regimen. For this reason, I truly believe that the skin that wears the make-up should be taken care of. Below I have listed steps that you can take to be on your way to better skin. Enjoy!


Cleanse, tone and moisturize twice daily.

*Keeping your pores clean is going to help your skin stay free of breakouts. Cleanse your face in the morning after you wake up to remove any oil buildup from when you slept. Always remove your make-up before bed. NEVER go to sleep wearing make-up, it is one of the worst things you can do for your skin!

*Toning is important because it balances the pH of your skin. Whether you tend to have dry, oily, or combination skin, toning is important. Toning will also help tighten pores after they are cleansed.

*Moisturizing is the last important step. Just like you hydrate your body, you want to hydrate your skin with a good moisturizer. Something with a SPF is good for daytime, and before bed use something heavier that will really moisturize your skin overnight. Products such as serums or face creams specifically made for nighttime are ideal. It doesn’t hurt to use a night cream with retinol which boosts collagen production and helps fight wrinkles and pre-mature aging.

*Exfoliation is a great step for putting that glow into your skin. Buffing off the dead layer of skin every couple of days will bring healthier skin to the surface. This helps make-up go on much easier, and allows for a more flawless coverage.

One thing that’s important to remember is that it’s never too early to begin new skincare, but DO NOT attempt any new products or processes a week or two prior to the wedding. You want there to be plenty of time to figure out what products to switch to in the case that you have a reaction to anything new. Begin good skincare months before the big day!

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not
100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.

If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it! http://tomq.al/trubuildfuelplatinum38902

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.

It looks like some of the text within your posts are running off
the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
