Wedding Dos & Don’ts from Skincare by Alana!
We all know that the magic behind a wonderful wedding is the “I dos”, but certainly there are some things we need to say “I don’t” to in order to have the perfect day! So future brides & grooms to-be, I am happy to present to you my fabulous Wedding Dos & Don’ts! It’s summer, ladies and gentlemen! And that means weddings, weddings, and more weddings. And summer heat to boot! So sit back, take notes, and enjoy!
DON’T: Wait until the day-of to have your makeup artist beautify you! Most professional artists will do a sample look sometime before your wedding, to ensure you are 100% happy with your wedding-day look! After all, you don't want to feel over or underdone!
DON’T: Indulge in hair hot-tools without the proper protection! I recommend Moroccan Agadir Argan Oil Spray Treatment for pre-styling nourishment, and Agadir Firm Hold Volumizing Finishing Spray to hold your hott look together!
Tip: Remember to try these products and your style at some point before the wedding to ensure picture perfect results! Overdoing it with any hair-oil product can leave your hair feeling greasy and flat, as opposed to silky smooth and voluminous!
DO: Exfoliate your skin the night before your wedding, or even the morning of if you are going to exfoliate gently! I recommend Dermalogica MultiVitamin Thermafoliant for facial exfoliation! This product is ultra nourishing, and will get your face looking fresh and radiant for your big day!
DON’T: Do ANY heavy duty scrubbing on your face. EVER. But especially not on the day of your wedding. Also, use an exfoliant that you know agrees with your skin! The last thing you need is a red, irritated face on your special day!
DO: Use a nourishing moisturizer post-shower on your wedding day! One of my favorites is Epicuren’s After Bath Moisturizer, which will leave your skin looking and feeling silky smooth and ultra-hydrated! The best part? This fabulous moisturizer comes in a variety of delicious scents, such as: Kukui Coconut, French Lavender, Lemongress, Orange Blossom, Papaya Pineapple, Rose Petal, Tahitian Vanilla, Moroccan Rosemary, and unscented! A definite must-have for any bride or groom to-be!

DON’T: Use your lavish body moisturizer on your face! This will most likely leave you with an oily-skin look—which will certainly not look great in photos! Instead try moisturizers designed specifically for the face, such as Image SkinCare Ormedic Balancing BioPeptide Crème. Enjoy as this ultra-nourishing product delivers essential vitamins and anti-aging ingredients to your skin—giving you an ultra fresh, healthy appearance.
DO: Wear sunscreen if your wedding or reception are going to be outdoors! There are plenty of fabulous brands that will deliver you lightweight, ultra-strength protection, in tantalizing scents, or no scent at all! One of my favorites is COOLA, with their spray body sunscreens coming in Citrus Mimosa and Pina Colada, and their face sunscreens coming in a variety of delicious scents (or unscented). Stay protected! Red is a beautiful color to wear, just not on your skin!
DON’T: Sweat the small stuff! Your wedding is supposed to be a day of enjoyment and ultimate happiness! It is the joining of two lives into one, and you definitely should not let the trivial malfunctions get to you! DJ forget to play a song you requested? Breath, at least you have your one true love as your new husband or wife! Smile & Enjoy! You only live once!
