The rush of your engagement is in the rearview and the reality of planning the most epic party of your life has set in—don't let it steal your glow! When you're low on sleep and feeling stressed, a rich mask or high-tech tool can bring you back to life. We're sharing our top skin care picks for getting (and keeping) that bridal glow.
Skin Toning Device
Kim Kardashian relies on it for makeup free contouring and Miranda Kerr calls it "exercise for the face." So, what is this wonder device? It's an at-home microcurrent device, approved by the FDA and loved by countless influencers and celebrities (seriously—check Instagram for some compelling action shots). Tone and smooth any area you'll be showing off with a completely doable regime of five minutes a day, five times a week.
Coco Rose Coconut Oil
Gentle but effective, this small-batch, Seattle-made scrub is full of the good stuff: sugar, organic coconut oil, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil and kaolin clay. Lush Moroccan rose soothes and scents. Add it to your pre-wedding bathing routine and revel in the results.
Genaissance de la Mer
The Infused Lotion
Yes, it is a splurge, but consider this—devotees praise this velvety lotion for its versatility. Think of it as a toner, essence and light moisturizer in one. Packed with active ingredients like seaweed and fruit extracts and oils, caffeine and even gold, this is an indulgence that pays huge healthy skin dividends.
Night Peeling Concentrate
Eminently Instagrammable, this bi-phase peeling concentrate from Lancôme will leave your face as pretty as your feed. A mix of exfoliating fruit acids sloughs off dead skin while nourishing oils plump up fine lines. Just be sure to test this brightener well before your big day: everyone's exfoliation tolerance is different.
Almond Coconut Milk
Flashing rings in photo ops and clutching your bestie just before you head down the aisle—you want your hands to be as soft as possible. A manicure is a given, but regular doses of a rich, oil-infused hand cream will go far, and a delicious, dessert-inspired scent will ensure frequent applications.
Blue Sodalite Facial Roller
By this point, you're probably on board with the benefits of facial rollers. You may have one stashed in your fridge or perched on your bathroom shelf. Jade and rose quartz are the go-to skin care crystals, but this marbled, moody blue sodalite version from Skin Gym will help you skip right past wedding stress to daydreaming of future bliss. Bonus: sodalite is believed to support emotional balance and self-esteem.
Radiant Glow Express Mask
At once wholesome and luxe, this deeply cleansing mask works to revive your skin in as little as five minutes. Essential oils keep the impurity-pulling clays from being overly drying, and at 2.3 ounces, the portable tube can keep the glow going on your honeymoon.
Borrow the trick used by makeup artists prepping celebrities for their red-carpet moments: shimmery, bronzing body makeup. Depuffing ingredients are even more effective applied with the cooling metal tip conveniently built right into the packaging. Subtly highlight your assets and even out your complexion with this bride-tested secret weapon. Their advice: allow for plenty of drying time. Translation: pop the champagne.
