Perfecting your wedding day look and style shouldn’t begin the day of your wedding. This is one of the biggest days of beauty women experience, so the preparation needs to start well in advance to ensure a smooth complexion, flawless makeup and perfectly arched brows. As an esthetician, I advise starting your in-salon treatments at least six months before your wedding day.
Facials and Facial Peels will definitely improve the overall youthful glow and health of your skin, while leaving a smooth surface for makeup application. Many women do not exfoliate on a regular basis because they were not taught the benefits. Exfoliating the skin sloughs off all the dead skin cells leaving healthy skin behind, which can help other skin care products permeate the skin. A facial will give you a deep exfoliation while targeting any chief complaints you may have regarding your skin. We can work on a spectrum of problems but most chief complaints include: acne, rosacea, wrinkles, acne scarring, dark spots and hydration issues. Allowing about six months before your wedding to treat any chief complaints can really improve the overall look and health of your skin.
I begin each makeup consultation with questions pertaining to the skin. I want to know if you have oily skin, dry flaky skin or tend to battle breakouts. Answering these questions will help me evaluate which makeup to use, but it will also allow me to personalize a skincare regiment that will fit your lifestyle. I can create a facial peel plan while advising you on products for your use at home. I use Image Skincare as my peels, facials and home regimen. These products effectively permeate the dermal layer and stimulate change within the cells. “Image Skincare is an evidence-based clinical skin care company providing professional skincare products and effective skincare solutions. The most innovative brand in the industry, Image Skincare consistently produces the latest anti-aging, hydrating and illuminating technologies to further its mission of helping the world ‘Age Later.’” My goal is to create the vision you desire on your wedding day for your skin, your makeup and even your waxing.
Waxing is another service I offer at the salon. I do a variety of waxes including all facial waxing, bikini to Brazilian, legs and underarms. I have one client that jokes that I wax her from her brows to her toes. Waxing your brows is definitely crucial to your wedding day prep. Many women forget to wax or shape their brows before their wedding day. I have had numerous brides in a panic asking if I have tweezers to fix their brows. Yes, I try to assist in these instances and create a beautiful arch despite the hair, but this is not ideal. Firstly, tweezing the brows the morning of your wedding will leave your skin blotchy and red. Secondly, there is not enough time to perfect a well groomed arched in the allotted timeframe. I advise all brides to start having your brows waxed six months prior to your wedding. This will allow you to attain the shape and arch you desire and also ensure that your skin is not sensitive to waxing.
