A good healthy glowing face is more vital than having the best makeup on your big day.

That’s actually true on a given day!

Makeup is the painting and your skin is like the canvas that the painting will hold on to.

Luckily kickstarting a skincare routine could be very simple, easy and fun!

6 to 12 months prior to your big day

1. Do A Skincare Consultation

Access your skin types, conditions, issues and anything that cannot be seen with naked eyes such as sun damage, age spots etc.

Did you know that Windy City Glam include an complementary skin consultation within your makeup trial?!

It really takes the guesswork out of choosing the best skincare + makeup for YOU!

As with all things worth doing, a quality skin care routine can mean an investment in time and money.

Follow this schedule every week to achieve desired results:

Everyday:  Apply the following products in this order – cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, and moisturizer.

Weekly/Bi-weekly: Exfoliate

Weekly: Mask treatment

2. Feed your body with H20

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and requires plenty of water to properly function and look its best.

Plan on drinking half your body weight in ounces of water to get the right amount for you.

A bride weighing 150 pounds should drink 75 ounces of water a day, for example.

Do not introduce any new products to your skin care regimen.

That product you thought would magically whisk away wrinkles and a rogue pimple might actually make them worse!

Within 10 days of your wedding

Call it a day with waxing.

Waxing can irritate the skin, causing breakouts, something that’s easy to understand.

But, a hidden risk to waxing is removing all of those baby fine hairs you don’t typically see, which can create an uneven look to your foundation.

Things will be fun but hectic and you may get a breakout.

RELAX! Because stress will only make it worse.
