The Importance of A Strong Wedding skincare Regimen

What we learned from Jenn ross-boshes and vanessa golden of Beauty Mark


“To ensure a glow on your wedding day, facial prep is essential” - Jenn


  • Find and meet with your esthetician a year ahead
  • Make sure your esthetician is an expert
  • Everyone's skincare journey is different
  • Know your skincare goals and talk about those goals with your esthetician
  • Have your esthetician do a complete skin analysis to customize your program for your skin type
  • Set up a good skincare regimen
  • Start facials a year before your wedding
  • This is not a time to try new things things that may react negatively to your skin
  • Protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen every two hours when outside
  • Stay away from Ray-Bans with gold or silver rims, as they attract light and can cause pigmented skin 
  • Stick to a diet of fruits and vegetables to maintain healthy and glowing skin
  • Exercise 3 times minimum a week, as sweating helps detox the skin
  • Give the process time, change won't happen overnight
  • Be consistent - consistency is key - come up with a plan and stick to it
  • Don't assume that because it's Maine, there will be plenty of estheticians and makeup artists available when looking last minute
  • Develop a relationship with your esthetician, who knows, they could become your best friend!
