How to Avoid Bridal Beauty Blunders

A couple years ago one of my friends, still blissfully relaxed from her facial, was inspired to buy the ENTIRE line of beautifully scented skincare products. The next day she realized what a painful and expensive mistake it was when she woke up covered in a not-so-pretty rash and lots of unusable lotions and scrubs. I asked Miami Plastic Surgery’s head aesthetician, Ana Malvarez, how brides can start a skin care program that sidesteps my friend’s mistake! Leave it to TLC’s bodywork team to have all the answers!


8-12 Months Before

Get serious with skincare. An aesthetician can evaluate your skin and recommend a monthly maintenance program including products and treatments.

Begin a stress-free regimen at least one night a week. Yoga, Girls Night, whatever it takes. Stress =  Pimples = BAD!

6-8 Months Before

Go hair free! Laser hair removal is the perfect solution to unwanted hair. Picture a stubble free wedding night and honeymoon… Your husband will love you even more!

Start getting facials!  Monthly facials will ensure glowing skin on the big day! Our pick? The HydraFacial- voted by In Style Weddings as THE Hottest Celebrity Pre-Bridal Facial. This refreshing treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, hydrated, rejuvenated, more beautiful skin.

1-2 Months Before

How’s it looking? Touch base with your aesthetician to see if there are any last minute treatments or products she recommends.

1-2 Weeks Before

Get your final facial!

Night Before

Exfoliate your skin so it glistens

Get a good night’s sleep. Under eye bags are not an acceptable bridal accessory
