Welcome our guest blogger and favorite SBC intern, Kendall. Kendall is planning her wedding and perfecting her beauty routine to prepare for the big day. We asked her to give us her best tips and favorite products for glowing skin, and here is what she had to say:
As any married woman or bride-to-be can attest to, planning a wedding can be stressful. Chances are, your skin may be showing of signs of that stress. Don’t let bad skin ruin your big day! Instead of caking on a ton of makeup to cover it up, let your real self shine through and begin a good beauty ritual at least 30 days before the ceremony to ensure glowing skin. You’ve got a lot on your plate and don’t need to plan one more thing, so I've done the skin care routine planning for you:
So many things can affect your skin: environmental pollutants, makeup, hormones, diet, and stress. Wash off the day with our Purifying Gel Cleanser. It’s gentle enough to use twice daily and effective enough to detoxify and remove dirt and oil to leave skin feeling soft and clean. Do you have dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin? Don’t sweat it. Our cleanser is great for all skin types.
Worried about your close-up shots on your big day? Trust me, you don’t want to skip this step: Follow up with our Restoring Marine Serum to replenish your skin for a more youthful looking face. Our Marine Serum uses AlgaDerm™ Complex to fight free radicals and support skin's natural collagen production for age-defying skin. In a third party study, 89% of women using the Restoring Marine Serum reported healthier-looking skin with more supple texture. Now those are results you can have confidence in!
Dehydrated skin can look dull or lackluster. Combat this while you catch some Z's by using our Restoring Marine Night Therapy, which hydrates skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In a third party study, 87% of women saw a visible difference in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are heading out for the day, don’t forget to protect your skin. Use our Restore & Protect Day Cream to protect your face from daily pollution. Active ingredient Algaderm™ promotes natural detoxification to reduce and calm environmental stressors found in normal, aging skin.
2-3 Times a Week
Don’t forget to exfoliate! Use our Purifying Micro-Scrub to banish dead skin cells and damaging toxins. Doing this 2-3 times a week can help to even out texture for smoother, healthier looking skin. I love the cooling, fresh feel my face has after every use. Your skin will never feel better!
Once a Week
Calm your wedding planning nerves and stresses by treating yourself once a week by unwinding with a therapeutic bath. While soaking in the tub using a calming lavender or eucalyptus peppermint Hydrating Seaweed Bath, try our Firm + Lift Treatment Mask to soothe your skin. This magical mask takes away redness and deeply hydrates skin’s surface layers to improve the appearance of skin’s elasticity and firmness for softer, more youthful-looking skin. The Firm + Lift Treatment Mask also is a perfect gift for your bridesmaids...because who doesn't want to be pampered.
Don't Forget About Your Hair
Shiny, healthy hair is a wedding day essential, so don't forget about your locks. For soft, luscious strands try our shampoo and conditioner duos. We have a solution for all hair types!
Happy wedding planning!
