So you have a BIG day coming up! Congratulations! We know there is so much that goes into planning a wedding or any grand occasion. While you are searching for the perfect dress, most amazing venue, the best photographer to capture every moment, fabulous eats, and all the other details that go into the perfect celebration, don't forget about taking care of yourself and your skin!


Those photos are going to tell lots of stories and you want to rock your best, glowing skin! Makeup is important and can give you the perfect look but without healthy skin, it just won't work as well as it could. Healthy skin = beautiful makeup.


Here are a couple tips to consider as you prep for the day in the months and days before you walk down the aisle.


Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin with a good exfoliator is critical to healthy glowing skin. Any product you slather on your face will never do what it's meant to do if it can't penetrate beneath dead skin. Exfoliating can:

  • unclog pores

  • help prevent acne

  • eliminate fine lines

  • help other skincare products penetrate deeper

  • evens skin tone

  • boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage

  • increases cell turnover

  • stimulates collagen

It's important to use an exfoliator without jagged edges that will scratch or aggravate the skin. Opt for one with perfectly round particles - not those with crushed shells for example. It is equally important to use the right amount of pressure. Too much pressure and you can break blood vessels and wreak havoc on your skin.


How often: 2-3 times per week


Hydrate & Moisturize


Hydrating and moisturizing are not the same thing! So let's define the difference.


Hydration absorbs moisture from the air, infusing your cells with water to improve your skin’s ability to absorb moisture and nutrients.


Moisturizing traps and locks moisture in to build your skin’s natural protective barrier. This prevents water loss and ensures your skin remains soft and smooth.


If your skin is dull and any fine lines and wrinkles you have are becoming more noticeable, your skin is dehydrated. Apply a hydrator to combat this issue and give your skin the much

-needed nourishment.


If your skin is prone to being dry or you have flaky skin, the skin barrier may not be locking in moisture. Apply moisturizer to restore your skin’s plump and bouncy appearance.


How often: daily

Hello beautiful ladies!


It’s another #TIPsyTuesday!


Let's talk about our hair tools - brushes, combs, clips, and styling tools. You might not give caring for these daily go-to's a second thought but properly maintaining for your hair tools is not only important to keep these everyday beauty necessities in tip-top shape. Regular cleaning is great for your brushes as it breaks down dirt, grease, and oils. This buildup adds stress to your locks and can transfer bacteria (yikes!) to your hair and scalp which can lead to scalp infections! Gross!


Brushes, Combs, Clips Remove buildup of oils, product and bacteria!


What you need: Antibacterial soap

What To Do

Remove hair. Be sure to remove all the hair from your brushes. To do this, use a comb and start brushing out the hair until clean.


Wash ... yes, wash them. Stylists use a cleaning solution like Ship-Shape or Barbicide for sterilizing after clients. In many cases, you may not have access to these so grab a mild antibacterial soap to do the trick. Add this to a sink full of warm water and place your tools inside. Leave them soaking in the solution for about 30 minutes.


Rinse. Drain the water and rinse well. Place everything on a clean towel to dry.


How often: Weekly or bi-weekly


Hot Styling Tools Remove sticky buildup


What you need: Cleansing pads (found at local beauty supply store) or a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol


What To Do

Be sure your tools are unplugged. Using the cleansing pads, scrub back and forth for a few seconds to remove buildup. Wipe with a clean damp cloth. If you do not have the cleansing pads (similar to a brillo pad), add alcohol to a rag and follow the same technique.


How often: Monthly


Hair Dryers Clogged air intake filters will cause your dryer to perform poorly and shorten the life of your dryer


What you need: Toothpicks, antibacterial soap


What To Do

With the dryer unplugged, remove the air intake cap and rinse it with antibacterial soap and hot water. Using a toothpick, remove the remaining dust particles with a toothpick. Some versions may be sharp so we do not recommend using your fingers to do this. Let the cap dry completely before reattaching it to your dryer.


How often: Monthly


Stay safe lovelies... we miss you!
