It’s the time of year again when people are getting hitched. Weddings are one of those events when you want to look natural and fabulous. Usually a wedding involves meeting friends from your past – sort of like a high school reunion. And who doesn’t want to show off at their high school reunion?
So we buy the dress, the shoes, the bag and a new lipstick. Ideally we would like to have a mani/pedi, new highlights, a facial and a full-body detox and a massage to go with it. But there is no time, there is hardly anytime to buy the dress, the shoes and lipstick….
Don’t worry – this is a good thing. A common mistake many make is to go skin care overboard with advanced and harsh treatments just before a big event. Instead of having a radiant complexion you end up with a red, puffy and shiny face which is impossible to cover with makeup.
A far more time efficient and gentle alternative is to do a mini treatment at home. First exfoliate. A good natural exfoliator is a mix of sugar, sunflower oil and a couple of drops of lemon juice. Then if you’ve got the time for a natural face mask, blend avocado and honey and put it on your face for 20 min. On the big day do a quick facial massage. This increases your blood flow and gives you radiant complexion. Also use a good nourishing moisturizer that works well under makeup, for example “My Day”. You will look stunning in a natural and effortless way – a perfect way to impress your high school friends.
