The ultimate pre-wedding skincare routine - according to the experts
Your special day is on the horizon and the planning is well underway. You’ve found the perfect dress, your Pinterest boards are overflowing with hair and make-up looks, but the one thing you mustn’t neglect is ensuring you have your skincare routine locked and loaded before the big day. After all, to look your very best for when all eyes on you, starting at the beginning is essential. But not to worry, experts at Cult Beauty are here to help brides-to-be with the ultimate pre wedding skincare routine.
Cult Concierge expert Natalie reveals that the ideal time frame to begin your wedding skin prep isn’t in the days or weeks leading up to the big day - it’s months before. Six months, in fact. “Anyone looking to revamp their skincare routine should remember that time is a key factor to bear in mind. Steer clear of making any major changes if it's less than six months before the big day. Any new formulation will not only need time to get to work, but you also need to let your complexion acclimatise.”
As always, there’s no one size fits all approach to skincare, but Natalie at Cult Beauty has created a one-stop shopping list for all the essentials to add to your routine:
The Inkey List - Fulvic Acid Brightening Cleanser
Glowing skin starts from your cleanse, so give your skin a helping hand with this gently exfoliating and radiance-inducing cleanser. Rich in vitamin C, Kakadu plum extract helps with the overall radiance of your complexion, with aloe vera to soothe and fulvic acid to gently exfoliate without irritation. Use morning and evening to deeply cleanse and brighten the skin.
Preparation is key, so introduce The Giving Essence to your pre-wedding skin care regime to help brighten, clarify and boost moisture levels. Ellagic acid offers a natural shine to your skin, protects collagen and fights bacteria to keep blemishes at bay. Infused with niacinamide, polyglutamic acid and a fermented sake derivative to boot, this is a key player in getting your skin wedding-ready.
Youth To The People – 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum
A true powerhouse serum, this stabilised clinical-grade vitamin C treatment offers brighter, radiant and more hydrated skin, all while protecting from damaging pollutants.
Rosy by name and rosy by nature, this perfectly pink moisturiser helps tackle dull and lacklustre skin with gently exfoliating salicylic acid and rosy-toned pigments to impart visible radiance from the very first application.
Supergoop! – Glowscreen SPF 30
Did someone say glow? Supergoop!'s Glowscreen does exactly what it says on the tin, and trust us, you won't forget your SPF ever again. Both a primer and a broad-spectrum SPF 30 whilst being reef-safe and cruelty free, this really is your multitasking hero. Sheer in texture, never heavy or greasy and glowy without glitter, this is the sophisticated SPF every bride needs to keep their skin protected and perfected.
