Radiant Wedding Day Glow: A Medical Approach to Perfect Skin on Your Wedding Day

Updated: Feb 24

Wedding day

As a bride-to-be, groom, or anyone else in the Bridal Party, it's natural to want to look your best on the wedding day. While makeup can do wonders, a radiant complexion starts with healthy skin. To improve your skin's appearance before the big day, it's essential to take a medical approach and focus on nourishing your skin from the outside in, and the inside out.

These are Dr Gemma's top tips, to radiant skin:

  • Start Early: To see significant improvements in your skin's appearance, it's crucial to start early, preferably six months before your wedding day. This timeline allows for addressing any underlying skin conditions, such as acne or rosacea, and optimising your skin health. If you don't have 6 months, don't worry Dr Gemma can recommend the best skincare and treatments to look your best for the time you have!

  • Establish a Skincare Routine: A consistent skincare routine is crucial to achieving healthy skin. Dr Gemma only recommends with powerful active ingredients that cannot be bought on the high street. These ingredients get results! Once you have tried medical grade skincare, you'll never use anything else again!

  • Hydrate: Drinking water is essential for skin hydration, allowing for a plump, youthful appearance. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day, and avoid dehydrating beverages like alcohol and caffeine.

  • Eat a Nutrient-Dense Diet: A well-balanced diet that includes whole grains and plenty of fruits and vegetables provides many of the necessary nutrients for healthy skin. Specifically, foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids benefit skin health. However, as the largest organ in the body, the skin is often depleted in nutrients. To give your skin a real boost, Dr Gemma recommends the Advanced Nutrition Programme. This high quality supplements are tailored to meet your specific skin concerns, with proven results!

  • Prioritise Sleep: During sleep, your body produces collagen, a protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep per night to support optimal skin health.

  • Incorporate Exercise: Exercise improves circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the skin, which supports healthy skin cell turnover. Additionally, physical activity may reduce stress, which can trigger skin inflammation and exacerbate skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

  • Start Monthly Professional Treatments: Professional treatments such as chemical peels, microneedling, skin boosters, LED light therapy and botulinum toxin injections will improve your skin's appearance. Discuss these options with Dr Gemma to determine the best course of action for your skin concerns.

  • Feel confident that your makeup is caring for your skin! If you wear makeup, it is just as important that it does good for your skin, like your skincare does. At Skinvestment, we are proud stockists of Jane Iredale makeup. This make is made from the highest quality minerals and actually cares for your skin! Dr Gemma will advise you on the best foundation for your skin concerns, that you can then give to your makeup artist for the big day! Nobody wants to start their honeymoon with a breakout caused by makeup from their makeup artist!

In conclusion, taking a medical approach to improving your skin before your wedding day involves nourishing your skin from both the inside and outside. Start early, establish a consistent skincare routine, hydrate, eat a nutrient-dense diet, prioritise sleep, incorporate exercise, and start monthly professional treatments. By doing so, you can achieve healthy, radiant, and glowing skin on your special day!
