12 months to go

  • Give up the junk food and replace it with fresh fruit, salads and vegetables, as this will help boost your immune system.
  • Start drinking the recommended daily 1.5 to 2 litres of water if you don’t do so already, as its important to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Start doing some exercise so that you look and feel great on the wedding day.

6 months to go

  • Try to make sure you start to get plenty of sleep, aim for eight hours each night, otherwise you will look tried in your wedding photographs.
  • If you don’t do so already start to exfoliate once or twice a week. If you are someone who has sensitive skin don’t worry there are a whole range of products available, and if you don’t like the look of them you can always make your own.
  • Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day.
  • Use whitening toothpaste which can help to remove any unsightly stains allowing you to smile with confidence.
  • If you want a tan on your wedding day and can’t afford to go away before the big day then you could use a self-tan. Start trying these now so that you can experiment with shades and find one you are happy with.

3 months to go

  • Go and have your nails done. If you bite your nails and are conscious about it, then you can always have false nails.
  • Moisturise your hands regularly so that they don’t dry out.
  • Have your eyebrows done. If you have sensitive skin you might ask if you can have them threaded rather than waxed.

The night before

  • Have a soak in the tub with some aromatherapy oils, as they will help you sleep, and if that fails you can always try Horlicks.

"The three basic beauty tips are more important that ever here..

Water - at least 2 litres a day, really does work wonders for your skin, eyes and wellbeing.

Sleep - no matter how excited or stressed you feel, lack of sleep will show, so make sure you get a good nights sleep as often as possible in the run up to your big day.

Eat properly - we all want to lose lose a few pounds before the wedding but starving yourself will make you look ill and even make your body hold onto fat. Your body needs fuel - even moreso when you are running on adrelalion through excitement and nerves." Jenny Evans
