The date is set, venue booked and now is the time to start your wedding skin preparation for the most photographed day of your life. You have the deadline of the wedding date which forces you to start planning your body and beauty regime. The clock is ticking and now is the time to start checking things off your wedding beauty plan leading up to your big day.
Your wedding day is one of the most significant days in your life that you want clear, smooth, glowing skin. And if there’s one time in your life when you’re probably at your most stressed, it’s the months leading up to your wedding day. Skin problems—like acne, rosacea flare-ups, and dark undereye circles—are often associated with these busy and sleep-deprived times in our lives. We also want our body to be in the best condition for the big occasion and that may take a combination of healthy eating plans, exercise programs and body sculpting packages to achieve your dream body.
That’s why beauty experts recommend a bride start thinking about her beauty regime at least six months before the big day. That leaves enough time to experiment with certain treatments you might not have done before and get over any adverse effects before you take your wedding photos. It’s also plenty of time to see amazing results from treatments that need a few months and multiple sessions to work.

Three Months to Go
Revamp your skincare routine. When your wedding is only a few months away, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but now is the time to stay diligent with a skin care regime using products you know work for your skin. You could look to add a couple new products for an extra boost of radiance. Now is the time to begin your journey toward radiant skin that will dazzle in all your wedding photos.
Working out regularly will keep your energy up as you prepare for your big day, and it’s a great opportunity to clear your mind and de-stress from all the wedding planning details. You should plan for cardio or resistance training several times a week during the month leading up to your wedding. The endorphins you build up from exercising will do wonders for your skin!
Clean eating with a diet filled with healthy, organic, whole foods and plenty of greens whenever possible is ideal. Be mindful of your diet so your body stays in peak condition and avoid junk foods, sugar, excess salt (which causes bloating and water retention) and alcohol to help your skin glow.
Skip the Wine and Get Juicing
Wine is such a dehydrator, capillary-breaker, and radiance-robber and consuming multiple glasses is one of the worse things for a bride-to-be’s complexion. If it's too hard to go cold turkey with your wine, at least cutback and substitute with a healthy, leafy green juice - especially during the last few months leading up to your wedding. Green juice is great for your skin because it's oxygenating and contains vital minerals to help stimulate the lymphatic system and drain out puffiness - one glass a day is ideal!
One Month to Go
Regular facials will cleanse and exfoliate which plumps and hydrates the cells in the face, minimising fine lines and wrinkles within the skin and gives your face a much younger and refreshed look. Keep up your exercise and eating routines and add face masks a few times a week to your beauty regime. Masks help to immerse your skin in moisture and get it wedding photo ready!
Don't neglect the skin on your neck. Photos won’t just capture your face, your neck is going to be in the spotlight as well, especially if you plan to wear a strapless or low-cut dress. Be sure to use a rich moisturiser to give your décolletage the deluxe treatment and spot treat any problem areas.
Sleep is So Important
Sleep is important for so many reasons, one being that we produce the highest amounts of natural HGH (human growth hormone) while we sleep, which is responsible for regenerating and creating new cells of all our body tissues — skin, muscle and hair. When we sleep, it's also the only time our brain can repair and reorganise and the relaxed breathing state during sleep reduces stress by calming our central nervous system. Less stress also means the lowered production of cortisol, the "fight or flight" hormone that tells our bodies to hang onto every ounce of fat it can for survival. Setting a bedtime and having a “getting ready to for bed” routine is essential to allow your mind, body and soul to rest and recuperate from the daily stress of life and wedding planning and give your skin a rejuvenated glow.
A body brush might be one of the best, affordable, beauty investments you make. Dry brushing provides major skin benefits, including exfoliation and increased blood circulation (i.e. a healthy glow). It also stimulates the flow of the lymphatic system, allowing that all-important fluid to whisk toxins out of our systems. Start with three dry-brushing sessions per week, building up to daily, and be sure to lather on moisturiser afterwards.
One Week to Go
Keep hydrated with plenty of water. You’ve heard it before and know it is good for you - your skin looks better when you drink up! It is recommended to drink more water in the week before your wedding day – at least eight glasses every day – this will keep your skin hydrated and looking radiant.
Get some rest. While stress might be high, your beauty rest is exceptionally important this week! Aim to get at least eight hours of sleep to help prevent dark circles. Double up on your eye cream morning and night.
Stay disciplined. There may be last-minute emergencies with all the wedding organisation but sticking to your daily skin care routine to make the months of hard work pay off with a truly glowing complexion on your special day - it will be worth the commitment!
Most importantly, savour every moment of your wedding day knowing you are feeling and looking your best - there is no better way to start your married life.
3D-lipo is probably one of the most advanced treatments of its type in the fight against targeted fat reduction, cellulite and skin tightening. The reason it is called 3D Lipo is to incorporate the three apparent effects of the procedure: fat removal, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction.
The main difference between traditional liposuction and the new 3D Lipo treatments is that 3D Lipo is completely non-invasive, with no need for therapists to go under the skin. Traditional liposuction has quite a few potential side effects including bruising, embolisms, necrosis, and other more serious symptoms. With 3D Lipo, you may experience minor discomfort after each treatment, but the side effects from entering the skin will not be there. With any fat loss treatment, there is also the downside that – if you don’t change your diet and exercise habits – the fat could come back.
Which fat removal treatment is for me?
Depending on individual’s goals and size, this determines which technology would be used for optimum results. In most cases, both 3D Cryolipolysis and 3D Cavitation will be used in combination over a course of treatments in order to maximize the results achieved - no other treatment combines these two advanced functions.
3D Fat Cavitation – Cavitation is a body sculpting inch loss treatment that not only destroys fat cells but tones and tightens the skin by removing and destroying the fat using ultrasound waves. Ultrasound waves disrupt the cell membrane, and the vibration causes the fat cell to break down. These fat cells change into a liquid state which leave the body through the liver, lymphatic system and bloodstream. It is important to drink at least 2-litres of water after treatments to flush out your system. 3D Cavitation is a treatment program of up to 8 sessions per area.
3D Cavitation is perfect for treating larger areas or fibrous fat such as bigger stomachs and thighs. It is a very popular treatment with male clients to help reduce stomach fat.
3D Cryo - selectively targets the fat cell by “Fat Freezing”, where -6-degree temperatures are applied to the treatment area for a predetermined time period to damage the fat cell. The damaged fat cells begin a natural removal process that continues for up to 6 months as they naturally start to break down and get excreted through the lymphatic system.
3D Cryo is highly effective in targeting areas such as belly fat, muffin tops, love handles, double chins, back fat and inner thighs. Results take 2-3 months to start noticing and up to 6 months for the full results. 3D Cryo requires 1-2 treatments per area where you can lose 20-40% fat from that one session. to help achieve a slimmer, toned figure.
Radio Frequency (RF) penetrates and heats the skin tissue and aids the production of new collagen and elastin fibres which tighten and smooth the skin. Fat reduction is only one part of people’s concern, there is also the desire to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body. Radio frequency is excellent for people who don’t need to lose more fat but want smoother, tighter looking skin. RF is an excellent treatment choice to tackle troublesome cellulite areas.
