Wedding day skin on her wedding day, every bride wants to feel as confident and beautiful as Queen Nefertari. Step one? Skincare, of course! Guarantee flawless skin on your big day by following these top 10 skincare tips.
Whether your wedding is a few months or a few years away, the best thing you can do for yourself is start thinking about your skincare as soon as possible! This preparation starts with research, which means you’re at the right place! We highly recommend reading through other skincare posts on the Nefertari blog that pertain to your particular skin type and start making lists of products you want to test out**. If you’re a visual person, it may help you to create a schedule for yourself from now until the wedding.
Find The Right Products
As all women know, there is no single routine that works for everyone’s skin. Finding the right products, especially if you’re starting from scratch, can be time consuming and at times frustrating, but we promise it’s worth it! We recommend that you test each product for at least one to two weeks to really see how your skin reacts and write down your thoughts so you don’t forget.
Don’t Forget The Basics
Once you’ve tested out enough products, you can create your perfect skincare routine. When you’re figuring this out, it’s important to remember the basics: cleanse, tone, moisturize. Be sure that your skincare routine includes each of these 3 steps to keep your skin feeling balanced and ready wedding day skin.
Make It A Habit
Just like brushing your teeth, showering, or taking daily pills, your skincare will eventually become a habit if you keep doing it. Find a way to work your desired skincare habits into your normal daily routine whether you set an alarm or simply train yourself to associate it with a certain part of your day.

Pick one day a week for a “spa day”. This should be a day where you have time to treat your skin and take it slow. On “spa day”, use those products your skin loves but doesn’t need much of, like exfoliating products, deep cleansing masks, etc. Relax and enjoy your special treatment! (pamper yourself)
The sun is the most damaging thing to your skin, so in the months leading up to your wedding, take extra precautions when exposing your skin to the sun. Don’t forget that the sun has a chance to damage your skin even when there’s clouds, snow, and fog. Be sure that you’re protecting yourself with wide brim sun hats and daily application of SPF, whether it’s in your daily moisturizer or you apply it separately. (Nefertari sun care)
Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
Sleep is good for so many reasons, one of them being your skin! Your skin does a lot of healing and regenerating overnight, so its important that you give it this downtime. Getting an average of 8 hours of sleep a night also helps to keep your stress at a minimum, which in turn helps your skin.
We’ve talked about what your skin takes from the outside, but its important that we not forget what you put in your body matters just as much. Eating a balanced diet with plenty of the nutrients your skin craves can be one of the most effective techniques for improving skin! Fill your meals with a variety of fresh fruits and veggies, go for healthy fats like nuts and olive oil, and choose antioxidant-rich ingredients like salmon and dark chocolate. If an entire diet makeover seems too daunting, ask a nutritionist!
Just because makeup is effective does not mean it is good for your skin. Makeup can be incredibly harmful to your skin, blocking pores and not allowing your skin to take fresh breaths of oxygen. Using high quality makeup (Sothys makeup) that’s formulated for healthy skin makes a huge difference for wedding day skin.
Incorporate stress relieving activities into your daily live. Walking, yoga, meditation, reading, and even coloring books have been shown to relieve stress. Find what works for you – your skin will thank you for it!
