Bridal Beauty Skin Tips from Karen!

Karen is a Dollface Certified Artist and a Licensed Esthetics Instructor. She has worked and trained with many industry leaders across the country. Read her tips for brides-to-be:

Having a flawless face on your wedding day begins months before you say "I do." Great makeup begins with great skin.

First, start a good cleansing program which includes a cleanser, treatment serum or gel, and a moisturizer all appropriate for your skin type. You also want to include a gentle exfoliant to your routine one to three times a week. I really like Oil of Olay Microdermabrasion. You may want to consult an Esthetician and discuss your skin-care goals. Remember, even oily skin types need a moisturizer. Just choose an oil-free one. Recently, I tried DDF Ultra-lite oil-free moisturizing dew and loved it.

Don't forget your lips! Exfoliate your lips by using an old soft bristled tooth-brush or wash cloth in the shower. Rub gently for 30 seconds. Apply vaseline or heavy lip balm every night.

One of the best things you can do for yourself and skin is drink plenty of water. Keep a water bottle with you at all times. Drinking more water will help rid your body of toxins and hydrate your skin. While you are at it consider decreasing your caffeine consumption.

Use SPF: Always remember to wear your sunscreen and put in on the back of your hands as well.

Start shaping your eyebrows 12 weeks in advance and do your last waxing or threading one week before the wedding. Avoid waxing if your are using a glycolic acid, retin-a or retinol product on your face.

Beauty sleep works!  Get plenty of rest to allow your skin time to repair itself.  Try to get as much as you can done early so you can focus on keeping yourself well rested and relaxed. Sleep is the body's natural beauty treatment and more effective than any other treatment you could buy.

Best wishes dolls!
