With all the details of planning a wedding, it is possible that your own beauty plan has fallen toward the bottom of the list.  After all, there are meetings with the wedding planner and the florist along with putting together the seating arrangement and writing all those thank you notes.  By moving beauty to the top of your list, you can guarantee yourself a stress free wedding day and honeymoon.  Every bride deserves to feel beautiful on her wedding day, so take a look at these easy wedding day bridal beauty bliss tips guaranteed to please both the bride and the groom!

Weddings are full of Love, so why not give your hair a little before the big day.  If you are one that hates humidity due to fizzy hair, there is now a new revolutionary therapy that eliminates 95% of frizz and curl plus adds amazing shine for all hair types.  Keratin Complex Therapy infuses natural keratin deep into your hair’s cuticle and the results are astounding.  Every person that I have spoken to about this new treatment has remarked that it is a life-changing experience.  Worry-free hair is now a reality.  Silky manageable hair will be yours not only for the wedding day, but also long after the honeymoon.  With only a two-hour treatment that can last for up to five months, you will have the hair you have dreamed of for your wedding day. You don’t want to leave your groom waiting at the alter or outside the bathroom door on your honeymoon as you fret over your hair, so take a trip to your local salon to see if Keratin Complex is right for you.

Glowing skin is a must to compliment to those luscious locks.  Your skin is your best accessory, so it is never too soon to begin a good skincare routine.  Try a natural line of skincare products to allow your own natural beauty to shine through. Just a few simple steps are all you need.  The three essential steps are cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize.  Look for a gentle cleanser that does not strip the skin of natural oils.  Use it twice a day with cool or lukewarm water.  Find one that your skin responds to well to and stick with it.  Don’t try anything new within a month of the wedding.  At least once a week exfoliate after cleaning.  Exfoliation gives quick glowing results. Next moisturize while the skin is still damp.   Using a moisturizer with SPF during the day is a time saver, since daily sunscreen is a must!

Another time saver to take you through all those wedding events, the honeymoon and beyond is gel nails.  These are not your mother’s nails. Revolutionary Axxium Soak Off Gel Nail Polishes are from OPI.   The gel nail polish goes on like a regular nail polish, and then it is UV cured for results that are flawless.  This long lasting color will take you through all those bridal occasions with little maintenance. You can choose from Barefoot in Barcelona, Bastille my Heart, I’m India Mood for Love and many others.

With the plan above, honeymoon beauty should be simple.  After all the formalities of the wedding, now is the time for a simple beauty routine.  Don’t keep those new husbands waiting on their new bride. Pick products that can double for two, like a tinted moisturizer with SPF instead of makeup foundation.  Replace lipsticks with tinted SPF lip balms to keep your lips moist and kissable.  Keep hair simple; so take along ponytail holders or hats for a quick cool look.

With worry free hair, nails, and skincare, stress will be keep at bay.  Enjoy your Bridal Beauty Bliss and your new marriage.  Congratulations!
