First off, let me start by saying that before I started my wedding plans, I was a total beauty product junkie. I will participate in any beautification process, regardless of pain, if I think it will make me pretty.
Here’s a list of things that I will be doing in preparation for my Wedding Day:
- Skin Masks— I’ve been giving myself a skin mask weekly starting eight months prior to the wedding. When my skin is oily or breaking out, I use Mary Kay Revitalizing Mask. In the winter, I find that a weekly Nivea mask really does wonders for my skin. Every few months, I use the intensive Origins Charcoal Mask. It’s intense and great on blackheads. As long as you moisturize afterward, your skin will look fabulous.
- Facials— Since I take really good care of my skin, I have been getting facials every three months for the past year. I have read that it is recommended to get a facial every month. I would do it but that gets expensive! I love Aveda salon facials the best.
- Nail Care — 3 months prior, I am going to start getting manicures every other week to ensure that I have the healthiest nails ever. I have been applying cuticle creme and lotion daily. Burt’s Bees is the knees bees for cuticle creme. I also like using Nailtiques protein to help my nails grow stronger.
- Microdermabrasion— I heart microdermabrasion. After a treatment, I feel that my skin looks years younger. I have had the treatment done on an irregular basis the past few years. In preperation for the Big Day, I had a treatment in December. I will probably get another one in February and in April.
- Waxing— Never fun but I do make a visit to Brazil before big trips. I will get a waxing probably on Tuesday or Wednesday before the wedding.
Tanning— This totally goes against being healthy but I am going to do a tanning cocktail on Friday. Twenty minutes in a tanning bed + One Mystic Spray Tan leaves me an entirely different color…but in the good way.
- Teeth Whitening— In my personal opinion, this will be the most painful treatment for me. For a regular tea drinker, it really isn’t optional. The last time I did a Zoom! treatment, I was in pain for days. Luckily, I have some leftover Tylenol 3s from my gum transplant surgery.
- Botox— I ugly cry. Besides, I am beginning to get frown lines between my brows. My plan is to get a tad of Botox to make me look wonderful and ward off the aging process a wee bit longer.
- Water— I am sure you have read this in magazines but it REALLY is true. Drink lots of water and your skin will look fabulous.
Alright ladies, I have totally spilled the beans on my beauty preperation plans. Does anyone have any other great ideas?
