Wedding planning is an enjoyable task, but just like any other event preparation, it may also be stressful at times. Every tiny bit of detail is very important for all brides, especially when it comes to their looks on their very special day. The pressure is also on for brides to look their best during their wedding day. Special attention must be given to the hair, make-up, and skin care. In order to avoid wasting all exerted effort to look good, here are some of the wedding beauty blunders that every bride must avoid at all cost.
1. Last minute change in hair color
It is okay to have your hair color retouched before your wedding, but experimenting with a new hair color is a very big no-no. First of all, you would not know how the outcome would be, and how your hair will react to the dye or coloring product to be used. Another thing is that it would actually change your overall look, since your chosen stylist and makeup artist have already chosen a look that would suit you best.
2. Drastic haircut
Just like hair coloring, you may opt to have your tresses trimmed before your wedding, but nothing more than that. Having a drastic change in the length of your hair will change its texture and style, and will definitely have an effect on the overall impact of your dress, veil, or jewelry.
3. Over-processing your hair
Hair procedures like straightening or perming involve chemicals that may wreak havoc on your hair and may cause a wedding beauty blunder. These chemicals may cause dry, brittle, frizzy, and unmanageable hair that would make styling a nightmare. A visit to the salon must be scheduled at least a month before your big day.
Waxing helps a lot in order for you to be camera-ready for your most awaited day. However, this procedure must be done at least 10 days before your wedding so that if ever something happens to your skin, it will have ample time to heal. Moreover, make-up does not easily adhere to freshly-waxed skin. Make sure to go to a waxing salon that you trust and already used before.
No amount of makeup could hide a bad tan. Tanning ahead of your wedding will give you time to correct mistakes, and will let you know how you would look before your big day. Also, never spray tan before your wedding. If ever you will resolve to spray tanning, do this at least two days before your wedding.
All brides want to glow during the day of their wedding. If you will sunbathe, always remember to not overdo it and apply sunscreen that would effectively shield you against harmful rays. This would help prevent dryness and peeling caused by sunburn. Also ensure that you are wearing a strapless top in order to avoid tan lines.
7. Facial and Peels
Your trip to the spa must be booked way ahead of your wedding. Since facials cleanse and removing skin impurities can cause blemishes – which is unavoidable. Furthermore, peels and other treatments often result to puffiness, swelling, and redness.
8. Experimenting with new products
You would not want to be stressed before your wedding day in finding instant fixes for rashes and allergic reactions. Stick to your beauty regimen and only use products that you have already used before in order to avoid potential allergic reaction.
You must avoid drinking alcohol days before your wedding. Aside from the empty calories that would cause bloating and weight gain, alcohol can make you feel puffy. Moreover, alcohol dilates our blood vessels, and leads to excessive skin redness.
Sleep is very important in order to achieve a very fresh and well-rested look on your big day. Lack of sleep would also make you prone to zits and eye bags. Moreover, getting enough rest would make you feel calm and relaxed.
By following these tips, you will be well on your way to avoid the most common wedding beauty blunders and be a radiant, glowing bride. Apart from these tips, you must also keep in mind that you must stay composed and not panic. Lastly, do not forget to think happy thoughts in order for you to radiate beauty from within.
