New York Bride & Groom of Raleigh wants you to look radiant and feel fantastic in every way on your wedding day. The first step toward this is caring for your skin. Healthy skin is our most basic beauty secret so we need to care for it properly — and it’s never too late to start. Some things like using sunscreen and drinking enough water should become daily habits. Here are more tips to prep for your wedding day glow:

Don’t leave it until the last minute to think about your skin — the longer you have to correct any skin issues, the better! Using products that contain AHAs (exfoliating acids) will help to remove dead skin cells, which tend to build up and leave our complexions looking dull and lifeless. Removing this dead layer will leave your skin looking fresher and more vibrant. Just remember to use a good SPF to avoid exposed skin becoming damaged.

Don’t try any new products up to three weeks before your wedding — this includes skincare, hair care, make-up, and even washing powder! Any kind of a reaction, it could take a couple of weeks to calm down, which the last thing you need before your big day!

Start drinking green tea, preferably every day. Not only can this help with weight loss — alongside a good diet and exercise regime, of course – but many people swear by its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help brighten the skin and reduce acne.

Since you’ll be showing some skin on your big day, make sure you are giving it ample nutrition to look its very best. Here’s more on that:

Eat Super Foods

No matter what your skin type is — oily, dry, normal or a combo — it craves water. Sure, drinking water helps, but snacking on naturally hydrating foods like watermelon works too. Other super foods for your face? Try grapefruit, cucumbers, tomatoes and kale.

Wear SPF 30…On Your Lips

It’s easier to prevent your lips from getting chapped than it is to repair them if they’re already dry and cracked. If you spend lots of time outdoors, especially in windy, sunny or cold weather, a thick balm with SPF 30 will keep your lips hydrated. Discover more tips from The Knot

6 Months Before

Start laser hair removal treatments. If you’ve had a lifelong hatred for your mustache or want a smooth bikini line for your honeymoon, head in for your first appointment now. These treatments require six weeks in between each one so every hair (at each point in its growth cycle) is zapped.

Get that acne, hyperpigmentation, or rosacea under control once and for all. If a major skin care concern has been troubling you, visit your dermatologist to see what your options are. Issues more severe than the occasional blemish or fine line will take some time to treat. Read more timeline tips at Pop Sugar
