Bridal beauty and skincare may seem overwhelming. With so many products, a plethora of wedding websites, and countless makeup mavens offering advice, dissecting what is appropriate for you may seem daunting. But without over-simplifying, less is usually more.
The easiest approach is to choose what your primary concern is and get products that address this matter. Kits or coordinating products by the same manufacturer are key. Mixing products from different lines can be a recipe for additional skincare problems, because co-mingling various products translates into blending different ingredients. Just as mixing certain chemicals together may cause a combustible reaction-integrating skincare products that may work brilliantly by themselves with something else can cause an adverse effect.
Organic or holistic skincare is a wonderful approach. These products are usually not chemically based and are therefore good for sensitive, unbalanced, or normal skins. A trip to a vitamin store will typically yield fabulous products that will nurture, protect, and rejuvenate bridal skins.
