    Wedding planner: Your skincare timeline

    So you’re getting married; congratulations! While the rush of wedding preparations often revolves around finding the perfect venue, the dream dress, and intricate decorations, it's crucial not to overlook the canvas of it all: your skin.

    Starting your skincare regimen at the right time can make all the difference in achieving that sought-after bridal glow.

    We’re here to steer you through the ins and outs of achieving your best skin—and ensure your complexion beams bright in time for your big day.

    The Skincare Countdown: When to begin?

    Like every good love story, ‘happily ever after’ doesn't happen overnight. It's a process, especially when it comes to your skin. But how early should you start? Here's a handy timeline based on different skin concerns.

  • Ageing and fine lines:
    What product should you introduce? Use either The Gentle Nightly Retinal Crème or The Intensive Nightly Retinal Crème. These contain an advanced concentration of Retinal (a fast-acting form of Retinol) to smooth texture and accelerate skin cell turnover, revealing a more youthful appearance.
  • When should you begin?  6–9 months pre wedding.

  • Sensitive and reactive skin:
    What product should you introduce? Choose The Soothing B3 Serum. It's packed with Niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B3 that’s renowned for its ability to reduce redness, balance oil production, and fortify the skin's natural barrier.
  • When should you begin?  6 months pre wedding.

  • Acne and inflammation:
  • What product should you introduce? Opt for The Deep Cleanser. Expertly crafted for acne-prone skin, it effectively removes oil and dirt that can cause inflammation over time, all while preserving the skin's essential natural oils.

    When should you begin?  4–6 months pre wedding.

  • Pigmentation and dark spots:
    What product should you introduce? Your go-to is The Brightening Crème. It blends Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and 4-n-Butylresorcinol; a combination clinically proven to mitigate hyperpigmentation and bring out an even, radiant complexion.
  • When should you begin?  5–7 months pre wedding.

  • Dull and tired skin:
    What product should you introduce? Turn to The Antioxidant Crème. Infused with an advanced, gentler form of Vitamin C, this crème actively guards the skin against free radicals, unveiling a naturally luminous complexion from the inside out.
  • When should you begin?  4–5 months pre wedding.

  • Dry and flaky skin
  • What product should you introduce? Add The Quartet to your regimen. This multi-peptide moisturiser comprises a medley of hydrators and prime soothers that guard the skin against the dehydrating impacts of daily life. Ceramides, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides synergise to calm, nourish, and bolster even the most delicate skin barriers, priming your skin for the day you've been dreaming of.

    When should you begin?  Anytime

    Why start your skincare regimen early?

    Diving into a new skincare regimen too close to the wedding might lead to reactions or purging, as your skin adjusts to potent ingredients.

    By beginning months in advance, you're not only ensuring radiant skin but also avoiding any last-minute skin surprises.

    What skincare should I use on the big day?

    For the best base on your special day, a prepped visage is key. It ensures that your makeup will remain flawless throughout the day's events. Here's what we recommend:

    1. Start with The Gentle Cleanser.This formula delicately removes impurities that accumulate overnight, while preserving your skin's essential natural oils, to achieve a clear, smooth and receptive base for your next steps.

    2. Follow up with The Soothing B3 Serum. It's designed to diminish redness, regulate oil production, and maintain a cool, calm complexion throughout the day.

    3. Seal the deal with The Quartet multi-peptide moisturiser. Its powerful blend of Ceramides, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides ensures that your skin remains calm, nourished, and deeply hydrated, without being suffocated.

    4. For the final touch, dab The Eye Crème on gently. This hydrating formula, rich in peptides and caffeine, combats puffiness and dark circles, giving your eyes a well-rested, vibrant appearance.
