Winter can wreak havoc for your big day. Dryness and dehydration becomes more apparent and skin can appear to be dull during winter weddings.
There are many products that can help to hydrate and nourish the skin to give it a fresh appearance for your wedding day, plumping up the skin’s surface helps with hydration.
Dry skin lacks oil and can appear duller, but regular exfoliation will remove the surface dead cells to brighten the complexion
Dehydrated skin shows signs of tightness and fine lines.
- Don’t forget to use an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) in winter as UVA rays can cause damage to the skin and premature ageing. (Nu Bride: Yes. Even when it’s cold outside!)
