Wedding bells? Beauty Tips for the Bride-to-be

About to take the plunge? Get professional help!
Bella Schneider, celebrity esthetician and owner of LaBelle Day Spas & Salon, makes sure your beauty regimen is perfect for the big day. Bella has established five bridal tips, which will help make your day flawless and fabulous.

Facial Facts
Bella advises that every bride-to-be should start treating her skin to monthly facial treatments 4-6 months prior to her wedding. Your facial should best fit your skin conditions (clarifying, detoxifying, anti aging, etc.) in order to receive the benefits of the treatment. If you want that glowing, radiant look on your big day, start this process early and all eyes will be on you.

Sun Safety
Every beauty rule of thumb is to protect your skin, don’t let sun damage ruin your sparkle. Bella suggests that the bride, always wear her sunscreen--especially two weeks prior to walking down the aisle. Getting a sunburn during this time period will make you not a blushing bride, but a peeling bride- not the look you were going for, right?

Rehearsal Ritual
Before the big day, there’s a rehearsal dinner and rehearsal ceremony, Bella recommends a rehearsal hair and make-up run through. Make sure your hair is exactly to your liking, as well as your make-up so that there aren’t any surprises the day of. This run through will fix last-minute quirks, which is the last thing you want to be worrying about before walking down the aisle…

Hydration Station
This should already be part of your daily skin care ritual, but before your wedding, Bella suggests that the bride-to-be especially hydrates her skin and under eyes with antioxidant rich night cream (to prevent under eye bags). Your skin should be fresh and exuberant before your wedding day. If you follow a daily skin care ritual, stick to it-- and if you do not, find one and follow it!

Perfect Shade of Tan
If you’re looking for that shimmering faux wedding-day glow before your big day, Bella recommends finding your perfect spray tan shade at least 4 months before to prevent a streaky/uneven color. We all have our spray tan horror stories-- your wedding day is not the day for such a story. Make sure to plan ahead to find the best air brush technician as well as shade to match your skin tone.

Now concentrate on the kiss!
