Since I get a lot concerns from brides and anyone in a bridal party for that matter. I decided I was going to give my best pre-wedding face routine I have.
For one, do not get a facial within the week or 2 prior to your big day. You’ll most probably break out. A facial is meant to deeply cleanse the skin therefore all impurities tend to come out within that week or next following your facial.
Ingredients you’ll be needing:
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
- Grounded coffee
- Night-time Moisturizer
The week of your wedding every night I recommend cleansing with a natural and underestimated product… baking soda. Take a tablespoon of baking soda in a small cup and add a bit of water, enough to turn it into a paste. Remove all makeup with either a wipe or a cloth and regular face cleanser. Rinse your face, then slowly and very gently massage the baking soda all over for about a minute, especially around the nose area. Rinse well and pat dry with a towel. Use your favorite night time moisturizer.
The night before the big day, I recommend the following. Take 2 tablespoons of raw organic coconut oil with a teaspoon of ground coffee, mix well. Remove all makeup once again, cleanse face with your favorite cleanser. Pat dry. With clean fingers, work the coconut oil and coffee bean mix onto your skin using circular motion. Again slowly and very gently massage all over for a good minute or so. You can even sit and enjoy some relaxing music. Rinse with help of a cloth. It’s ok if you have a bit of an oily residue, do not remove it. Let that oily residue seep into your skin overnight for extra moisture and hydration.
If you are worried about oily skin, don’t worry!!
In the morning just rinse your face very well and that’s it! Don’t need to put anything else.
Just remember oily skin is easier to work with than having dry, patchy skin. Trust me!!
That’s it, hope you enjoy this.
