One week out: HydraFacial
To make sure your skin is photo-ready when your special day arrives, Dr. Shafer recommends a HydraFacial session a week prior. This non-invasive facial marries clinical exfoliation, hydration, and antioxidant protection. “Imagine gentle suction removing dead cells, while antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides drench your skin.” And there’s no discomfort or downtime, so it’s perfect for a pre-wedding pick-me-up (and so are these DIY facial treatments).
Night before: Moisturizing sleep mask
The night before is all about beauty sleep. You want to make sure you look and feel your best, so catching some quality sleep is key. (FYI: This is what’s actually happening to your skin while you snooze.) Make your slumbering hours work even harder with a moisturizing, overnight facial treatment, like Boscia Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask, Amorepacific Moisture Bound Sleeping Recovery Mask, or Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. Slather it on before bed and, when you wake up in the morning, your skin will soft, supply, and wedding-ready.
