No bride wants to face the trauma of spots on her wedding day! Get a gorgeous glowing complexion with these handy hints – perfect for those with acne-prone skin.

THE ULTIMATE WEDDING SKINCARE GUIDE

Drink lots of water
You’ve probably heard this a million times, but drinking lots of water really does help to clear up your skin. Take lots of little sips rather than glugging it down and always keep some water by you to make sure you remember.

Green and white tea
High in antioxidants, green and white tea are proven to help you get a glowing complexion. Replace your morning coffee with a healthy cup of this instead.

Avoid greasy and sugary foods
A diet high in sugar and simple carbohydrates is more likely to cause breakouts. Greasy food will cause acne if it comes into contact with your skin so it’s also best avoided.

THE BEST BRIDAL MAKEUP COUNTERS

Go make up free
It’s a terrifying thought, but ditching the makeup altogether in the run up to your wedding will work wonders for your skin!

Remove your make up
If you’re not quite brave enough to go without, make sure you thoroughly (but gently!) take your makeup off each evening to avoid clogging up your pores.

Cleanse, tone and moisturise
It’s a tried and tested formula which works for millions of brides! If you can’t be bothered with a complicated facial routine just stick to these three simple steps.

HOW TO TREAT A WEDDING DAY SPOT

Pop your towel and pillowcase in the wash
Dirty linen and old face towels spread germs, which cause your zits. Make sure you fling them in the wash at least once a week.

Don’t test out any fancy new products
You might have been bought a very posh new beauty product for the big day, but unless you’ve tested it a month or so before the wedding we wouldn’t advise using it, just incase you have a dodgy reaction. Sad face.

THE 10 WEDDING BEAUTY COMMANDMENTS

Tie your hair back
New hair products and grease can quickly cause acne. Keep long hair tied up out of your face and keep fringes pinned back.

Keep calm
Stress and anxiety has been known to cause breakouts. Try (!!!) and keep calm in the weeks leading up to your big day and believe us, your skin will thank you.
