THE GREATEST WEDDING GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF!
Planning a wedding can be stressful and may have an adverse effect on your skin. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it difficult for skin problems to heal and can cause existing skin conditions to flare up. But there is no need to panic. Just start an effective skincare routine as soon as possible to avoid disappointment on your big day.
WHAT SKINCARE IS BEST FOR ME?
Just like you would want to wear a unique dress on your wedding day, a good skin care routine should be designed for your skin’s needs, in preparation for your big day. Jackie Swart, Head of R&D and Product Development of Skin Care, Ascendis Health, suggests using a derma- cosmeceutical skincare range because it is more effective in treating targeted skin problems, and the blends of active ingredients work in synergy to clear, refine and renew skin in the deepest layers. “Whether your skin classification is Environmentally Damaged, Hyperpigmented, Problematic or Interactive, there are products and professional treatments in the Nimue range to address each concern,” says Jackie
DON’T WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE
She advises that you should start a new skincare regimen at least three months before your wedding day. “Some people may experience a transitional period as their skin adjusts to the new products and active ingredients and this can result in breakouts, excessive dryness or oiliness, increased sensitivity etc. This is a good sign as it signals your skin health is undergoing a positive change. It is temporary but you don’t want this happening when you are days from walking down the aisle,” she says.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Make an appointment to have your skin analysis done and then purchase the tailor-made skin transformation regime your skin therapist recommends. It’s the greatest wedding gift you can give yourself.
