Toska's Tips: Bridal Edition!

What's the one thing you should truly invest in for your big day? A good photographer would certainly be high on the list, but the answer starts with you: your skin! Nothing will give you that boost of confidence like a healthy, glowing complexion on your wedding day. Today, we're sharing our top skincare tips for brides-to-be to prep for that natural glow once the big day arrives.

Where to Begin?

The earlier you can start your routine, the better. No one facial or product will give you perfect glowing skin, but time and consistency will certainly help you get there! Giving yourself at least 6+ months to get a skincare routine into action is ideal.
The first thing to focus on is exfoliation and cleansing. By removing dead skin cells, controlling acne and sebum secretion, and rebalancing the skin early on, you won't have to worry about a sudden spot showing up on the big day!
Some amazing facials for the early stage include our Deep Cleansing facial, which utilizes a blend of products, chosen by our experts based on what is best for your skin, to cleanse and exfoliate while also stimulating cellular renewal.

This facial can also be elevated to the Remodeling with Deep Cleanse, which additionally accelerates the healing of imperfections and tightens your pores with the Remodeling machine.

As we get texture, scarring, and acne under control, the 3 month mark is the time to focus on anti-aging, toning, and lifting. Aging is a complex process that affects everyone differently, so taking reign of the issue as early as possible will give you time to achieve that youthful glow on your big day.
Facials such as Remodeling with Deep Cleanse and Manual Lift will help you keep your skin balanced while also providing the benefit of Manual Lift's amazing sculpting and toning properties. You can also boost this already amazing treatment to Supreme Remodeling, which has an additional booster based on your skin's needs.

Between your facials, some products that will give a huge boost to your anti-aging regimen are Lotion MC 110 no.1 and Serum 3R.

Lotion MC 110 no.1 acts as a booster to your P50. It exfoliates, purifies, brightens, and smooths out fine lines. Use it after P50 once a day to give a boost to our favorite toner.

Serum 3R is a regenerating, renewing, and repairing serum that works to repair the DNA of your skin. For a complete action against skin aging, this serum helps reduce inflammation, hydrate, and exfoliate all while firming and brightening your complexion. It is suitable for all skin types including mature, devitalized, reactive, and dehydrated instants. For best results, use alongside your quintessential serums.

While you keep up with your facials, now would be a good time to introduce some intensive products to your regimen.

These products are the best of the best in the Biologique Recherche line, offering many powerful benefits for your skin.
One of these superstar products is Le Grand Serum, which really lives up to its name. It is the ultimate Finishing Sérum; this sublimating elixir was made specifically for Madame Allouche. Thanks to a formula boasting the highest concentrations of active ingredients among all Biologique Recherche serums, Le Grand Sérum is a ubiquitous serum that provides anti-aging, protection, and hydration. Suitable for all skin instants, this serum should be used as the last step in your skincare routine.

Protip: Mix a few drops of Le Grand Sérum with Serum de Teint or your favorite foundation.

Included in this treatment is a deep cleanse and exfoliation to refine the pores, followed by a manual lifting and application of a customized selection of serums and masques.

1 day before

On the night before the wedding, the first thing you should do is relax and take a deep breath. With such an important day ahead, it's easy to feel anxious, excited, or both at once. So, do your best to wind down and get plenty of rest for what's to come- and what better way to relax than with a masque?
Masque Creme Biofixine is the perfect masque to sit back and relax with, as you can either wash it off after 20 minutes or leave it on overnight. It both tones the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines while also soothing and unifying the complexion, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and youthful the next morning.

Protip: Mix your masque with a serum, such as Serum Elastine, to really boost its effects!

Valmont's Prime Renewing Pack is another amazing masque that provides intense hydration and anti-aging properties for an instant glow. With just 20 minutes of application, this powerful masque reduces signs of fatigue and aging, giving that "Photoshop Effect".

Before the Wedding

Your big day is finally here, and it's time for all the last minute preparations! Before applying your makeup, take around 20 minutes to put on a Masque PIGM 400 sheet mask for an immediate glow. Follow up with Cryo-Sticks to soothe and refresh your skin. With everything out of the way, all that's left to do is to walk down the aisle feeling confident with glowing, healthy skin.
