Start an Exfoliation Routine
Your wedding makeup has probably clogged your pores, at least to some extent. A good scrub will unclog pores, ridding your face of dead skin cells and leaving it squeaky-clean. Use a gentle exfoliator a couple of times a week, massaging your face in a slow, circular motion to ensure proper blood circulation and remove dead skin cells.
Go Easy on Makeup
While makeup was your best companion as a bride, the time after the wedding is when you need to give your skin a chance to breathe. So, go easy on the makeup as too much can damage your skin. You may want to apply some moisturizer with the foundation and compact powder that you typically use. You could also switch to lip stains rather than lipstick, which tends to have a waxy base.
Switch to a Soap-Free Cleanser
Since you will probably still need to wear makeup, it might be best to use non-comedogenic cleansers and moisturizers, especially the oil-free variants, to give your skin a rest. These contain ingredients that shouldn’t clog your pores or cause more skin issues.
Catch up on Sleep
Even though you need to spend quality time with your partner, keep in mind that your sleep is essential for your skin. Aim for at least 7 to 8 hours every night to get rid of those dark circles and other signs of wedding stress that may be visible on your skin.
Keep Yourself Hydrated
Proper hydration after your wedding is crucial in keeping your skin rejuvenated, soft, and smooth. The best way to flush out toxins, clear that acne, keep your skin hydrated and supple, reduce wrinkles and fine lines is to hydrate.
Always Wear a Sunscreen
Not only does sun exposure cause tan lines, but it also leads to wrinkles and signs of premature aging. Every time you go outside, be sure you apply sunscreen that’s suited best for your skin and protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun’s UVA rays.
