A September wedding with our gorgeous bride Ali took place in Marylebone London. Some behind the scenes photos of hair & makeup. A undone effortless (which really isn't effortless ha ha) low bun & a modern & fresh color palette for makeup which enhanced her natural beauty.
SKINCARE TIPS FOR BRIDES TO BE
1. Skin for me starts with diet before I look at products to use topically. If I have a wedding or special event coming up I juice, I eat clean whole foods, mainly plant based. Esp salads! But try kick starting your day with pure celery juice first thing in the morning. It is a great way to start your day & also FANTASTIC for skin. It is actually great for skin conditions like Psoriasis & Eczema. So 1 whole celery in the juicer every morning trust me you will see a difference. 2. When I am preparing a model or clients skin I always start with a facial massage using my fingers. Although now there is a fantastic tool CRYO ROLLERS or face rollers. FYI: cryo rollers stimulate the Lymphatic System & massage the face helping it get rid of puffiness, toxins & reduce muscle tension. Keep your Cryo Roller in the fridge for maximum effect as the coolness reduces any vasular activity. 3. With regards to skin products well, there are some factors to consider. What skin type you have e.g is it dry or oily. It may be skin conditon ie acne, rosacea. Your age, someone in their 20's wont use the same products as someone in their 60's. And also your budget!!! It is really trial & error when it comes to skin care. The more knowledge you have regarding your skin the easier it will be to find the right products. With most of us esp if you live north of the hemishere your skin is going to somewhat dry & dehydrated this time of year. I have super dry & deydrated skin this time of year so these are some products I use to get me through the cooler months.

This is really beneficial if you have 3 - 6 months prior to your wedding or special event for this. BUT as a whole Omega 3 are a great supplement for the body. And if you are experencing an inflammatory response on your face ie rosecea or psoriasis the fish oil helps with this. Also Vitamin D which we are all lacking during the winter months. This Vitamin is great for bones, teeth & muscle function BUT also amazing for skin!
