Skin 101: Your Pre Wedding Skin Timeline

If you're reading this and you're soon to be married—congratulations! We are so excited for you and your partner. There is so much to consider when it comes to your big day; from the venue to your dress to which type of champagne you'll serve—and of course, your skin. 

We're here to support with the latter. Wherever you are in the wedding planning process whether it be a year away or just a few months—we can't wait to go on this journey with you. The final destination? You walking down the aisle with total #skinconfidence.

Join our Reformaskin membership
Results, take time! That's why we've developed a range of memberships, personalised to get you the results you want. Our Skin Health Membership, Reformaskin gets you a schedule of personalised skin treatments every 3 - 4 weeks with a Caci Skin Therapist plus a recommended at-home regime. Your Caci Skin Therapist will work with you to develop a pre-wedding skin plan to help get you glowing skin for the big day. Not only will you be working on achieving total #skinconfidence but you'll also get to enjoy 30 minutes of down time each month when visiting us in clinic. Wedding stress who?

Begin your at-home skin routine
It's important to support in clinic results with at-home care. Your Caci Skin Therapist will recommend a Murad and Skinsmiths regime that best suits your skin concerns and goals. Your Skin Therapist will tweak this regime over the next 12 months in line with your progress, so you've got the best skincare sidekicks to get you to your big day.

3 - 4 Months Out
Book your Cosmetic Injectables appointment 
Plan to get your Botox® and/or Dermal Filler top up well ahead of your big day. It’s best to have a Botox® treatment about 2 - 3 months prior and your Dermal Filler top up 3 - 4 months prior. Botox® results last for up to 3 - 4 months, while Dermal Filler lasts 8 - 12 months, so by the time your wedding comes around you will have become used to your refreshed look. You'll feel comfortable, relaxed and most importantly—confident! Read more about Cosmetic Injectables and your wedding here

Book your partner in for a skin conditioning treatment
Glowing skin is better when shared! This day is about the both of you so why not get your soon-to-be hubby or wife booked in for a treatment or two over the coming months. You'll both enjoy the downtime amongst the craziness that is wedding planning but most importantly, you'll both be glowing on the day. 

1 Week To Go!
Your final treatment

Get your final skin conditioning treatment! We'll opt for the treatment that is going to leave you fresh and glowing for your big day. Our Sonophoresis Skin Infusion will leave you hydrated and glowing.

Be careful with breakouts
Wedding planning can be a little stressful, there's no doubt! Throw in some pre-wedding jitters, your Hen's Do and voilà—those pesky breakouts can decide to pay a visit. Don't squeeze! Instead, cleanse and apply Skinsmiths Blemish Treatment or Murad Rapid Relief Spot Treatment to the area. This will help calm inflammation and encourage healing. If you're concerned, give your Caci Skin Therapist a call. They know your skin and will be able to give you personalised advice. 

Stay out of the sun
Sun burn and tan lines are not a part of your wedding attire plans. Plus they have nasty long lasting results. Wear your SPF, pop on a hat and stay away from direct exposure to those harsh UV rays.

2 - 3 Days
Drink H2o
A huge factor of healthy skin, comes from within. Like your diet, fueling your body with plenty of water will keep your skin hydrated and plump, so make sure you're consuming the recommended amount as you approach the day.

Be strategic with skincare
Don't incorporate anything new or use a harsh exfoliator that could upset your skin. Instead, keep your routine simple and plan to use your retinol the night before so you can enjoy that glowing skin you've been working for!

Get your beauty sleep
Essential to feeling well-rested and to avoid any dark circles. If you find you've got dark under eye circles then look to incorporate Murad's Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector—but do so well in advance, not a few days before. 

The BIG Day
Enjoy yourself! They say the day will fly by, so soak up every moment with total #skinconfidence. All the best and we can't wait to hear about it once you're back in clinic (post honeymoon, of course!)
