3 Spring Beauty Tips to Get Your Skin Wedding-Ready

March 29, 2017

The Shady Sun Shady Polish Results

1. POLISH TO PERFECTION 

from Amanda of The Shady Sun:

No matter the cut of your dress, flawless skin for face and body is a must on your big day! For some, this comes easy…for the rest of us, it’s time to get to work. Use a product that promotes natural oil balance and skin rejuvenation for a clear complexion and healthy glow. We suggest one of the scrubs from the Shady Polish Collection, a plant-based scrub line crafted to target acne, stretch marks, cellulite, and scars with regular use. For best results, know your skin type and and use 2-3 times a week starting a few months before your wedding. While the scrubs will start tackling the surface issues, hit it with a one-two-punch from the inside out. Increase your water intake and eat clean to help detox your body. After each shower with the scrub, moisturize as well–this will help your skin retain all the nutrients and help it looking dewy and radiant. Nor sure which scrub is right for you? Check out our top 3:

+ For dry skin: Ocean Citrus is a powerful, yet gentle scrub made from exotic sea salts and citrus oils to heal your skin while restoring and locking in moisture all day. Its been boosted with additional Vitamin E to help reduce signs of aging and fight free-radicals.
+ For normal/combination skin: Charcoal Coconut detoxes your largest organ–your skin. With the aid of mineral salts, activated charcoal, raw cacao and nourishing oils, this scrub creates balance to your combination skin and helps prevent future breakouts. (Just a tip: Due to the Activated Charcoal in this scrub your skin will temporarily tingle and stain. It can be easily cleaned with any soap/body wash.)
+ For oily skin: Seaside Primrose is an oil-free and floral scrub that cleanses and polishes. Made from brown rice, it creates a firm and blemish-free complexion by eliminating excess sebum while mineral-packed salts heal the skin.

2. CLEANSE & CLEAR

from Shanna of Pins to Pearls:

Always cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin (for at least 2 weeks prior to the big day)! If you are not sure what products to use, ask the experts by finding a local skin care specialist. It might be time to freshen up your tools and products! Be sure you’re using clean makeup brushes and applicators–believe it or not, some of the products we use to beautify harbor an alarming amount of skin-irritating bacteria. To clean your brush, use a gentle, everyday brush cleanser that can be picked up at your local beauty store. Last, but definitely not least, drink plenty of water! The key to healthier looking skin is hydration. You can use all the creams and beauty products in the world, but the true key to healthier skin is in your diet.

3. GET THE GLOW 

from Bumble Bee Juice Bar:

For a healthy, radiant complexion and a natural energy boost, we love Bumble Bee Juice’s “Glow” recipe! This refreshing beverage is easy to make at home, even without a juicer, but if you’d rather skip the hassle, just stop by Bumble Bee Juice and ask for a “Glow”. It’s not on their menu, but they’ll be happy to make you this specialty drink!

1 oz. lemon
.5 oz. of ginger
.5 oz. turmeric
8-10 oz. coconut water
Top with a sprinkle of cayenne
