The big day is almost here, and you are most likely worn out from all the seemingly never-ending planning. You will have already chosen your hairstyle and make-up style and may have been following a strict beauty regime. However, even if you haven’t had time for daily moisturizing or weekly hair treatments months in advance, you can still be a beautiful bride with just one week’s preparation.
This may be obvious, but it is also the most difficult thing to achieve when there is only one week to go before your wedding! Being sure to get at least eight hours of sleep per night is great for your mental wellbeing and your appearance. The best way to slip into a deep sleep is to avoid any television, laptop or mobile time for at least an hour before you go to bed. According to Health.com, nature sounds can also assist with relaxation, and these types of soundtracks can be downloaded for free from assorted sites.
Water is your skin’s best friend, and no matter how much moisturizer you slather on your face, if you are continually dehydrated, it will begin to show. Drink at least 2 liters of water per day, and more if you are exercising or are particularly active. Keep a bottle of water with you wherever you go, and glass by your bed at night to remind you to keep your water intake topped up. Try to stay away from alcohol as this dehydrates the body in a major way. By keeping hydrated, even in a week, you should be able to notice the difference.
Food is fuel, and you will need nutritious food to feel in peak condition, now more than ever. Juicing is a fantastic way to get plenty of vitamin-packed fruit and vegetables inside you quickly. Research juice recipes to keep you motivated with delicious blends and motivational stories. If juicing isn’t for you, simply cut out sugary, fatty foods for the week and up your fruit and vegetable intake.
By now you will have chosen the perfect hairstyle for your day and will have had one or two rehearsal appointments. However, if you are styling your own hair, and have left absolutely everything to the last minute, don’t panic, you can still ensure you perfect a gorgeous bridal hairstyle. Should you be struggling with how to wear your hair, look for inspiration on sites such as Mynewhairstyles.Net and take advantage of easy to follow tutorials and hairstyle suggestions. A week before the day, treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment, but be sure to test it on a small section of your hair first a few days before to ensure you don’t have an allergic reaction. Do not be tempted to do a deep conditioning treatment the night before your wedding as hair is easier to work with when it hasn’t been washed for a day or so, and when it is free from any products.
Have fun preparing for what is sure to be the biggest day of your life. With these handy hints, you are certain to look fabulous.
