Your wedding day is a momentous occasion filled with joy, love, and celebration. As the spotlight shines on you, it’s only natural to want to look and feel your best, including your skin. To achieve healthy skin, one must follow a customized skincare routine, where regular facials administered by a licensed aesthetician play a crucial role in preparing your skin for the big day.

Why Are Regular Facials Important Pre-Wedding?

Stress Breakouts: 

Planning a wedding can be a stressful experience, and stress often manifests itself on your skin. The increased cortisol levels can lead to breakouts, redness, and uneven skin tone. Regular facial treatments can help combat these stress-induced issues by promoting relaxation and targeting specific skincare concerns.

Bridal Glow: 

The coveted bridal glow is not just a result of happiness. It combines healthy, well-nourished skin and a skilled makeup artist. Facial treatments, like Dermasweep®, can enhance blood circulation, promoting oxygen flow to the skin cells. It also helps with hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and cell regrowth. This, combined with proper hydration and skincare, contributes to a natural and radiant complexion that will leave you positively glowing on your special day.

Flawless Makeup Application: 

Your wedding makeup will only look as good as the canvas it’s applied on. Your makeup artist can only do so much if your skin is dry, flaky, or uneven. Facial treatments can help refine your skin’s texture, minimize pores, and create a smooth surface for makeup application. Plus, by addressing any skin imperfections in advance, you ensure that your makeup artist has the best possible canvas to work with, resulting in a flawless finish that lasts throughout the day.

How Facials Improve Your Skin Pre-Wedding

The pre-wedding timeline is crucial for implementing an effective skincare routine that includes regular facial treatments to help target hyperpigmentation, scarring, uneven skin tone, acne, pore size, and other skin issues. Aim to start your treatments at least six months before the wedding with one of California Skin Institute’s dermatologists or advanced practitioners to help you create a series of sessions to address your skin health needs. 

Here’s how facial treatments contribute to achieving your bridal beauty goals:

Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation: All facial treatments involve deep cleansing and exfoliation of the skin to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Facials can help prevent breakouts and ensure your skin is receptive to the products applied during your daily skincare routine. 

Hydration Boost: Many facial treatments include hydrating masks and serums that replenish moisture levels in your skin. Well-hydrated skin is less prone to fine lines, ensuring a plump and youthful appearance for your wedding day.


Stimulating Collagen Production: As we age, collagen production decreases, but medical-grade facial treatments will boost collagen production, promoting skin elasticity and firmness. A treatment from an aesthetician can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contributing to a more youthful complexion in the long term.

Pre-Wedding Product Recommendations

Please book an appointment with one of our aestheticians for a customized skincare routine. 

Gentle Cleanser:

  • Use a mild cleanser for your skin type to keep it clean without stripping away essential oils.

Exfoliating Scrub or Mask:

  • Incorporate a gentle exfoliator 2-3 times a week to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, radiant layer.

Hydrating Serums:

  • Invest in a hydrating serum with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and promote a dewy complexion.

SPF Moisturizer:

  • Wear a daily moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent sun damage.

A customized skincare routine, including facial treatments, is essential to achieving and maintaining a radiant bridal glow. By prioritizing your skin health in the pre-wedding timeline and beyond, you’re ensuring a stunning appearance on your special day and laying the foundation for long-term skin wellness.
