The wedding day countdown
6 months to go
It’s never too early to start thinking about your bridal skincare routine – after all, your skin loves consistency! We’d recommend our core cleanse, tone and moisturise routine to get your skin looking clear and radiant long before the wedding bells ring.
Alongside your daily routine, why not also book in a course of relaxing facials? Here’s what our Treatments Expert, Karen, advises:
“So many people plan to book their first and only facial a day or so before their big day. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing and their skin will usually love it, depending on the nature of the facial, this does mean you run the risk and result of a deep cleansing effect and a few breakouts occurring within the first week post-treatment – which isn’t ideal! By getting an honest appraisal of your skin by an expert therapist months in advance and then following with regular bespoke treatments designed specifically for your skin goals every 4-6 weeks, this will provide longer term results, whilst supporting your overall skin health.”

Your skin will have settled nicely into your 3-step routine by now, so it’s a good time to introduce a few regular additions to target any skin concerns.
It’s no secret that wedding planning can be stressful, so if you’re feeling the pressure, it’s likely your skin is too. Our CICA Restore Skin Paste is the perfect overnight formula to intensively hydrate and visibly improve the look of imperfections while you sleep.
As the big day approaches, why not introduce Gentle Face Exfoliator to your routine? Using it 2-3 times a week will help keep your skin looking clear and feeling smooth. Keep your body smooth and nourished by using our Cleanse & Polish™ Body daily. The invigorating fragrance paired with the luxurious texture and accompanying mitt leaves skin feeling renewed and deeply hydrated – the gently exfoliating mitt will help if you’re wanting to trial tanning products for a natural-looking glow.

With the results of your new bridal skincare routine starting to show, you can also start to focus on the little details that will make all the difference as you walk down the aisle. Prep for the classic ring snap by keeping hands soft and nourished with Orange Flower Hand Repair™. The botanical blend of soothing echinacea and toning hops leaves hands feeling soft and smooth while delicately scenting.
It’s not just your skin that deserves attention. Choosing a fragrance that will forever remind you of your special day is an exciting detail that shouldn’t be missed. If you can’t decide, take our fragrance quiz.

The final touches are falling into place! While it’s tempting to stay up late with the to-do list, make sure you stick to a sleep routine so your skin (and the delicate eye area) stays looking its natural, radiant best. To give your complexion a helping hand, you can also indulge in a relaxing night-time ritual with our luxurious Superskin™ Nourishing Night Cream to hydrate, firm and even the appearance of skin tone while you sleep.
1 day to go
With just 24 hours to go, plan in at least one fun, non-wedding-related activity today to give yourself a break ahead of the big day. It could be something as simple as taking a walk in the woods or curling up with your favourite book for half an hour.
To help calm pre-wedding jitters before bedtime, spend 5 minutes performing a relaxing bridal facial massage with a few pumps of Superskin™ Concentrate for Night. Not only will the blend of pure plant oils nourish and hydrate your skin overnight, the calming essential oils of lavender and chamomile will help you feel relaxed before you drift off.
On the day
Your wedding day has finally arrived! Today is all about enjoying the moment, so you want your bridal skincare routine to be simple and leave you glowing all day.
If you’re still looking for your ‘something blue’, you can count on Cleanse & Polish™. Delivering the same clear-looking, radiant results you’ve enjoyed for the last 6 months. Follow with Gentle Face Exfoliator, a few minutes buffing away any remaining dead skin cells will give your complexion a final radiance boost. Revitalise your eyes with a sweep of Eyebright™ Soothing Eye Lotion and Instant Brightening Eye Cream to cover any sign of dark circles. Now your skin should be looking radiant and ready for your special day ahead.
