Are you ready to start planning your dream day? Before you scream yes, take a deep breath and begin your journey to looking and feeling your best before the wedding comes along. How? By adopting these pre wedding healthy habits that are going to make you healthier and better in your own skin. This guide is for both the bride and the groom-to-be.
Get Enough Sleep
Making sure that you get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep each night will go a long way in helping you to chill out and reducing the stress that comes with wedding planning. If you have trouble falling asleep because of mind chatter and mental to-do lists, try meditating. Listening to a short guided meditation before bed can help you to reach a much-needed level of relaxation.
Two tips for getting a good night’s sleep are to turn off your electronic devices at least 30 minutes before sleep and making sure that your room is pitch black. Keeping the room as dark as possible can help you maintain a proper sleep cycle without external interruptions.
Skimping on the water can cause some major dehydration, leading to your body functioning at a sub-optimal level, which is not what you need in a stressful situation. Dehydration may cause reduced brain functioning, and you may start to feel sluggish and find it hard to make it through the afternoon.
Making sure you get between 8-12 cups of water per day can help to keep your skin glowing and wrinkle-free, not to mention it can help to flush toxins out of your body, causing an improvement in energy levels and balancing your moods.
Take Care of Your Skin
Finding the perfect skincare products before your big day shouldn’t be just a one-time trip to the beauty corner is Sephora. You should make an appointment with your dermatologist early in your engagement (around six months before the wedding should be perfect) to achieve that beautiful glow for your wedding day. If you’re dealing with acne, enlarged pores, or sensitive skin, you don’t want to wait until the last minute. Make sure you have enough time for several treatments if that ends up to be needed.
