Every bride wants beautiful glowing skin for her special day.

In the run up to the wedding, it is so important that you closely follow a skincare regime which will clarify your skin and boost your natural glow so you skin looks healthy and radiant on the day.

To help you perfect your complexion, we have created the ultimate wedding skin prep routine for a glowing bride which promises a luminous, ultra-soft skin finish.

Wedding skin prep routine

Whether used in the run up to your wedding or the night before and the morning of, this routine is sure to leave your skin fresh, radiant and perfectly prepped for wedding makeup application.

Overnight treatment

Using an overnight treatment the night before will not only enhance the results of your skincare the morning of but will also help to perfect your skin and enhance your natural glow as you sleep. Using the Murad Night Fix Enzyme Treatment will minimise signs of fatigue and skin dullness overnight to reveal a brighter more even visage.

Supercharged with chronopeptides and tri-enzymes to support natural cell regeneration to restore your skin's vibrancy, the night-time moisturiser hydrates and plumps the skin, minimising the appearance of fine lines for a youthful, glowing finish. The wonder-working treatment is also infused with a calming fragrance of cedarwood, violet and lemon to help you drift into a deep night's sleep and help to calm the senses ahead of the big day.

Morning cleanse

Cleansing is the first and arguably most important step in your skincare routine for enhancing your natural glow. Massage the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel into dry skin and wash away with a damp cloth to reveal a radiant complexion.

Blending vitamins and fruit enzymes, the gel-to-oil cleanser melts away impurities and sloughs away dead skin cells without causing any irritation. Perfect for all skin types, the nourishing cleanser leaves skin plump, refreshed and supple with a gorgeous glow.

First layer of hydration

An essence is the perfect post-cleanse product to add an extra layer of hydration into your routine to enhance your skin's natural luminosity. Enriched with encapsulated flower oils to brighten and hydrate the skin, the PIXI Rose Caviar Essence plumps quenches your skin and provides long-lasting moisture.

With a beautiful floral scent, the essence uplifts the senses and leaves your complexion so soft.

Nourishing oil

Follow up your essence with a nourishing, radiance-boosting oil such as the PRAI 24K GOLD Precious Oil Drops. Working to maintain healthy collagen levels in the skin for a plump, hydrated skin finish, the oil drops glide over the skin to infuse the skin with moisture and add a beautiful glow.

Either applied onto the skin alone or blending with your moisturiser for an extra dose of glow, the oil drops promote a more youthful, healthy-looking complexion thanks to their Avocado and precious PRAI Oil-infused formula.

Glow-boosting moisturiser

Moisturise and illuminate the skin in one step with FILORGA Oxygen-Glow Cream. Deeply moisturising and infused with an energising oxygenation booster to plump and soothe your complexion, it is the perfect wedding-day skin prep product.

The skin-quenching cream is also enriched with Hyaluronic to provide long-lasting hydration and to enhance your natural radiance. Skin is left supple and soft with a divine glow.

Brighten + depuff

Using cooling and soothing eye mask is the perfect way to create a fresh, wide-awake eye look and the Rodial Dragon's Blood Eye Mask is one of our favourites. Working to tone and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes, each patch minimises the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in minutes.

Infused with Arnica Extract to brighten and depuff in addition to intensely hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to plump the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, they are the perfect pick-me-up for tired eyes.

Lock in hydration

Lock in all the moisture and goodness from your wedding prep skincare routine with the Lowengrip Moisture On The Go Facial Mist. A facial toner and hydrating mist in one, the lightweight formula restore your skin's natural pH levels to leave skin with a healthy glow.

Enriched with a cocktail of moisturising and anti-ageing ingredients, it locks in hydration to keep skin glowing throughout the day. It can also be used over makeup to refresh and add a little more glow.

Kissable lips

The last and most important step for your special day is a luxurious lip balm to create the perfect kissable pout. Luxurious and beautifully scented, By Terry Baume de Rose is the dreamiest lip balm to use on your special day.

Enriched with a nourishing blend of shea butter, rose flower essential wax and conditioning Vitamin E, the cult balm plumps and hydrates the lips to leave your pout soft, supple and utterly kissable.
