Everyone wants to achieve that coveted ‘bridal glow’ for their wedding day. Nicola Peltz mastered the art of the wedding day glow at the wedding of the year to Brooklyn Beckham. Peltz-Beckham curated a wedding day that screamed ‘old Hollywood glamour’ – and it all started with the bride’s skin. Ahead of the big day, Vogue covered Nicola’s skin prep by interviewing her facialist, Lena Bratschi.
Not everyone has the bank balance of Peltz but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a wedding day glow. In the months before your wedding, you want to be working on your dewy, radiant glow. While you might be hitting the gym to get wedding-ready, you don’t want to forget about your skin.
We’re sharing everything you need to know about how to get your wedding day glow – from when to start booking in treatments to which non-invasive products to use. Read on to find out how you can recreate Nicola’s stunning bridal glow.
Your wedding is all about getting everything ready in time. Most brides will choose their dress at least six months in advance, which is the same time when you want to start working on your skin. If you’re blessed with good skin, you may be able to work with just three months. In general, brides who have a skin condition – such as excess skin or acne – should give themselves six months to get their skin wedding ready.
For the best results, you want to use a combination of traditional techniques with the latest skincare technology and treatments. You want to restore your skin to its natural radiance. In the months leading up to your wedding, you want to take a ‘skincare first’ approach to your beauty routine.
Putting the time and effort into your skincare will give you a glowing canvas for your makeup artist to work their magic. Just like starting a new workout routine, you want to start implementing a course of regular treatments.
Between 3 to 6 months before the big day, you want to start monthly treatments. You can choose from peels, needling, and facials to address your specific skincare concerns.
Starting a few months in advance means you know how your skin will react to a treatment and prevent any tasty surprises just before the big day. Your final treatment should be a week or two before your wedding to give your skin time to recover, without losing the results of the treatment.
Just like Nicola, you want to find a dermatologist or spa to work with to get your skin wedding ready. Nicola’s facialist shared with Vogue that she used LED therapy to give her skin a subtle sculpting effect, along with oxygen infusion to hydrate and nourish the skin. Her treatment also included cryogenic stem cells to promote cellular regeneration to restore the skin’s natural radiance. These modern treatments were incorporated with traditional techniques, such as facial muscle stimulation and lymphatic drainage.
One treatment that every bride should be incorporating into their routine is facial massages. It’s a natural way to sculpt and tone your skin without turning to an invasive treatment. We recommend this treatment for brides as it’s easy to incorporate into your at-home routine.
If wedding stress starts getting to you, sit down and treat yourself to a facial massage. It will help boost your skin’s circulation and lymphatic system, maintaining the glow you’ve gotten from other treatments and products. A deeper facial massage will help to sculpt your muscles and boost the definition of your face. You can even book in for a massaged-based facial the day before the big event.
Taking care of your skin ahead of the big day doesn’t just give you a radiant glow, it helps your makeup go on flawlessly. Even if it’s only a few weeks till your wedding, putting time into your skin can give you a visibly brighter complexion. Makeup will always be there to help you conceal imperfection but stepping up your skincare routine will make your makeup artist’s job easier.
Caring for your skin means you can use a natural bridal look like Nicola choose. Her makeup focused on light sculpting to accentuate your cheekbones and facial structure – letting her skin’s natural glow do the rest of the work.
