Did the man of your dreams finally take the plunge and get down on one knee? Congratulations!
These past few months have probably been a whirlwind of excitement mixed with a little confusion as you began to decide what your dream wedding would look like. When you’re looking at venues and creating your guest list, you may feel like your wedding is so far away.
However, if you want to look as radiant as possible when you say, “I do”, now is the perfect time to add beauty treatments to your wedding timeline. Pushing this off too long may mean you can’t get all the treatments you want, or you may be left with some residual redness on your wedding day–and nobody wants that!
So what beauty treatments should you get and when should you get them? We have all the answers you’re looking for! Keep reading to discover our timeline.
6 Months Before the Wedding
It’s no secret that you want to be the most beautiful woman at your wedding. But the stress of planning can have a negative effect on your skin. To achieve youthful and glowing skin, it’s best to start 6 months in advance.
Microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment for anyone looking to achieve smooth and even skin. It removes the dull or uneven top layer of your skin and reveals the fresher skin that lies beneath.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
Do you feel self-conscious about your uneven complexion? While microdermabrasion can help even out your skin tone, intense pulsed light therapy may be the better option.
Redness can occur from broken capillaries or rosacea found in the deeper layers of your skin. Intense pulsed light therapy focuses on reducing this redness and evening your complexion by using a concentrated flash of light that penetrates deep into your skin.
Facials and Hydration
Do the two above options sound a little too intense for you? Then consider starting a facial and hydration routine instead.
Regular facials can help give you a more youthful glow and softer skin. Staying hydrated has several benefits, such as preventing wrinkles and dry skin.
3 Months Before the Wedding
Are you panicking because you wanted to get a microdermabrasion, but you only have 3 months before your wedding? Don’t worry–there is another option!
A chemical peel is very similar to microdermabrasion. Both work to remove the dull or uneven top layer of skin to reveal the more youthful skin below.
They differ in the application: microdermabrasion uses a machine while a chemical peel is a solution that’s applied to the face and peeled off after a few minutes. You may still have some residual redness from a chemical peel, though, so make sure you get it no later than 2-3 months before your wedding.
1 Month Before the Wedding
So, you’ve spent the past few months working on your skin to ensure it’s even, youthful, and fully moisturized for your big day. Now it’s time to focus on more specific areas of your face.
It’s normal for your teeth to accumulate some stains over time, even with regular cleaning. But if you want those pearly whites to really shine in your wedding photos, now is the best time to schedule a professional teeth whitening appointment.
If you have a chipped tooth or small gaps between your teeth, you may want also want to consider bonding. This process involves placing a resin material on your teeth to fix minor problems and leave you with a flawless smile.
Who doesn’t want full, sexy lips on their wedding day? Lip fillers are the best way to achieve this.
Of course, you don’t have to go full Kylie Jenner if you don’t want to. You can go subtle to plump your lips while still looking natural.
Long, luscious lashes are the goal for many women. But if you don’t want to fiddle with fake eyelashes on your wedding day, then go with Lash Boost. Applying the serum regularly a month before your wedding will give your longer and fuller eyelashes, so all you need is a little mascara.
1 Week Before the Wedding
The big day is almost here! You’re probably feeling swamped with last minute wedding details, but don’t forget to squeeze in these beauty treatments.
Hair Trim and Dye
With just a week until your wedding, now is not the time to try a funky new style for your hair. Instead, you’ll want to get a trim to cut off all those dead ends and leave you with healthier looking hair.
If you regularly dye your hair, get a touch up on your roots to ensure it looks natural. You might also want to consider some subtle highlights to add definition and interest to your hair.
If you spent the past few months inside pouring over wedding details, you probably lost your tan a long time ago. With only a week left to go, consider hitting the tanning salon to achieve that perfect sun-kissed look.
If you’ve never tanned before, be sure not to overdo it. You may also want to avoid self-tanners. They can leave you with awkward streaks or blotchy spots–and nobody wants that.
2 Days Before the Wedding
With only two days left, it’s time to add the final touches.
You want your wedding day look to be flawless, and that includes having nice nails. If you’re getting them done professionally, 2 days in advanced is perfect to ensure they remain perfect.
A little underarm stubble can be enough to ruin the wedding day look you worked so hard to achieve. Waxing ensures your underarms will remain smooth and hair-free.
If your eyebrows are already shaped but the stray hairs are growing back, consider an eyebrow waxing to ensure they look perfect on the big day.
If you’re leaving for your honeymoon right away, you can’t go wrong with a full body wax. This way, you’ll stay nice and smooth without having to worry about shaving on vacation.
We’ve all been there–you have an important event coming up and a pimple decides that it’s the perfect time to make an appearance. But you don’t want to settle for adding extra coverup on your wedding day.
A cortisone injection can reduce the swelling and can even get rid of the pimple completely! It takes 1-2 days to fully work, meaning you can even get this done the day before if needed.
