10 steps to becoming a healthy, glowing bride
From the never-ending list of things to organise to the usual nerves about saying ‘I do’, planning a wedding is a stressful time, and stress always shows up on the skin! With all the errands you have to run, phone calls you have to make and appointments you have to meet in the lead up to your wedding, preparing your body, skin and mind can sometimes be thrown on the backburner. It is important to make time for yourself at this incredibly exciting time in your life, so the skincare and wellness experts at London clinic, Nuriss, have put together a list of tips and treatments to get you looking your most beautiful on your big day.
Look after your skin
The most important thing to do is to start early, even a year early if you can, repairing any damaged skin and ensuring you have a stellar daily skincare routine. Many people actually use their skincare products incorrectly, so for a step-by-step guide, check out this skincare blog by our London skincare professionals. You should be cleansing, toning and moisturising your face twice a day, exfoliating once a week and wearing sunscreen during the day, all year round. Your body also needs some attention, with exfoliation twice a week, moisturiser twice a day and healing products, such as tea tree oil or coconut oil after waxing or shaving.
Schedule some professional facials
It’s a great idea to add some professional treatments into your skincare routine during the months leading up to your wedding. Depending on your budget, you might want to treat yourself to a facial or peel each week or once a month to get your skin looking and feeling as radiant as possible. Nuriss’s Bridal Radiance Skin Peel and the Nuriss Signature Fibroblast Facial are popular choices.
Your skin is only as healthy as your body, so make sure you are fuelling it with the essentials. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water and exercise to release endorphins and sweat, which will rid your body of harmful toxins. Herbal teas are a fantastic source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and different types of tea have healing powers, such as relieving bloating, nausea and stress.
Repair damaged skin with dermaroller therapy
If your skin is looking a bit worse for wear, with dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, then dermaroller therapy might be the best option for you. The medical grade skin needling treatment stimulates the skin, encouraging it to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, resulting in smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. As well as ageing skin, the treatment can be used on acne scars, sun damaged skin and stretch marks. If you are looking for the treatment in London, skincare clinic Nuriss offers the most advanced form of Dermaroller, called the Dermastamp. It provides quicker and more comfortable treatments than previous variations using, microscopic needles that are rolled over the problem area. The skin is forced to rejuvenate itself, producing lots of new collagen during the regeneration process.
Rid your face of fine lines with laser therapy
If you’re hoping to even out your skin tone, remove brown spots or rid your face of fine lines and wrinkles before your wedding, then Nuriss’s Baby Face Laser Therapy is a great option. It takes years off your face leaving you with baby soft skin, and is a popular choice because it is non-surgical and non-invasive. The treatment removes the top layer of your skin, which is made up of old, damaged skin cells, allowing new skin to surface. The end result is tighter, fresher looking skin.
Plump up your lips
Now we’re getting into the treatments that will give you the ‘wow’ factor on your wedding day. If you’ve always thought your thin lips let your face down, and you want to get them looking particularly special when you say your vows, then a lip treatment like the Perfect Pout Lip at Nuriss is a sure way to have you looking your most seductive for the big day! There are a range of treatments to choose from, starting with the Insta-Glitz Nuriss Perfect Pout Treatment, which plumps up and hydrates the lips without using any fillers, and it lasts a few weeks. If you’re looking for a more permanent result, lip fillers can be used to create fuller lips, soften smoker’s lines and down-turned lip corners, enhance the shape and definition of your lips, and even out imbalances.
Get a last minute laser lift
If you’re looking for a treatment to take years off your face in a short amount of time, preferably on your lunch break in between last-minute errands you’re trying to run, Nuriss’s Lunchtime Laser Lift Treatments are ideal. The results are similar to deep chemical peeling and laser resurfacing, with short bursts of light energy reaching underneath the skin’s surface to create microscopic holes under the skin. The holes stimulate a remodelling process and healthy, new collagen is produced while unwanted pigmentation is broken. The end result is radiant, youthful skin with a glowing, even tone.
Focus on the body
There are a number of fade-away treatments available in London at Nuriss, from the Tummy Toner and Stretch Mark Treatment to the Trim Those Thighs Therapy and Exilis Saddle Bags Treatment. The fade-away treatments use radiofrequency waves to melt away fat cells in stubborn areas while tightening loose skin and firming the body, and they work wonders alongside your regular exercising routine.
Get rid of unwanted body hair
Rather than risking irritated skin, rashes and bumps on your wedding day with waxing or shaving, you should think about starting a program of laser hair removal to rid your body of unwanted hair for good, or at least drastically minimise their regrowth. Soprano ICE Laser Hair Removal at Nuriss is the most advanced form of painless hair reduction available today. The laser is extremely precise and can be adjusted to the exact parameters to disable the hair follicle, leaving your surrounding skin untouched.
Contour the body with an expert treatment
Imagine a completely flab-free wedding day. If you don’t think you can quite accomplish that naturally, then Nuriss’s Body Contouring with Exilis is a great last step. It uses two leading body contouring and skin tightening tools – radiofrequency and ultrasound technology – to banish flabby areas without needing surgery, focusing on problem areas such as the neck, love handles, abdomen, saddle bags and inner thighs.
