With spring upon us, it’s time to update your beauty regimen if you are planning to incorporate the season shades! As much as you want to achieve that sun-kissed look for your wedding day, it’s important to protect your skin from the summer’s hot UV rays. With warmer weather, you’ll want your bridal skincare routine to keep your skin feeling refreshed, (as well as protected!). That’s why we’ve decided to share with you the top summer wedding skin care tips that will keep you looking flawless for your big day!
Use SPF-Based Products

Metaphoric of light and happy days, Summers are a wonderful time but, let’s face it, with extremely high temperatures and scorching heat summers for that matter are unpleasant and dreadful. This may be a no-brainer, but sunscreen can be easily missed during your bridal skincare regime. Not only will this help keep your skin protected in the long run, but it’ll also help avoid any not-so-fun sunburns. Trust us, a sunburn stands out ten times more when you are wearing a white wedding gown.
Choose Mattifying Makeup

To combat shine, you’ll want to make sure to use a mattifying primer after your face moisturizer and before your foundation. A mattifying primer serves as a barrier between your skin and the foundation and prevents sweat and oils from breaking through that barrier. It can also help hold makeup in place, making it last longer.
Don’t Leave Your Hair Open

A great styling tip for summer brides that are going to save them from a bundle of the fuss is to avoid open hairdos; even half-tie hairstyles for that matter. You all are already aware of how difficult it gets to manage open hair in summer. And we believe that being a bride would be the last thing you’d want at your wedding. Have your hair tied up in gorgeous accessorized buns or chic messy buns. Ponytails and minimal braids would be a great idea too for your pre-wedding ceremonies and they look super trendy with gowns and dresses by the way!

Drinking enough water is perhaps the most important thing to do all summer, wedding or not. However, it cannot be denied that weddings are a very busy time when one is all caught up making plans and last-minute preparations, as a result of which, you can forget to drink water. This can cause dehydration and also result in the skin losing its plumpness or elasticity, causing blemishes or dry patches. In order to avoid this from happening, make sure to drink enough water.
Take Help From A Dermatologist

Even after following the proper skin routine if you face any problem you can consult a dermatologist. They will guide you properly and give you the correct skin treatment. Any bride will benefit from starting a pre-wedding beauty regimen. Brides should consider enhancing their natural glow, which means exfoliating, plumping, and brightening their skin.
