As every bride-to-be will know, most weddings are the result of military-style planning, trouble-shooting at every turn and giant leaps of faith that everything will be perfect on the day. Which of course, it will. One thing you can take off your mind is your beautiful bridal complexion. Because ELEMIS has got it covered.
Three months before the big day
Unless you are about to get married on a whim and elope, it’s a good idea to start a focused skincare regime a good three months in advance of your big day. That way, you can discover what works best for you without running the risk of any last minute surprises of the unexpected blemish variety. The best way to make sure you are using the best products possible is to consult an ELEMIS expert, who can curate a special programme for you as well as getting you ahead of the game with a series of deeply nourishing facials. To complement your treatments, cleansing and toning on a daily basis is crucial – the ELEMIS Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser brings an ethereal glow while the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, one of our hero anti-ageing products, is rich in natural anti-oxidants and deeply cleans to encourage skin to work at its highest level. There is a cleanser for every skin type to choose from. Just like the right dress, know that it’s out there.
If you don’t already, it would help to make sure you are exfoliating and using a mask twice a week. This helps prevent the build up of dead skin cells that can dull the complexion, and supports skin function, Like a regular work out does for your body.For that extra leg-up, the ELEMIS Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules nourish and detox, improving elasticity for a brighter, clearer, healthier complexion.
Pigmentation can be targeted with the White Brightening Even Tone Serum, which works to restore even skin tone, while the Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask gently, but thoroughly, removes dry, redundant cells to reveal fresh, smooth skin just beneath it. Perfect for tackling any bumps or deep set lines and wrinkles. Then of course, there’s the legendary Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, and the new ultra hydrating version for dry, dehydrated skin Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich. There’s a reason why a pot sells every ten seconds – and that’s because when it says it will reduce the signs of ageing, that’s exactly what it does. All skin types respond to this delicately fragranced, lightweight texture, packed to the brim with extraordinarily powerful anti-oxidants and marine minerals. To try it is to love it.
One month before the big day
Continuing to use your ELEMIS Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules, you can now add a layer of ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum to help firm up and lift the skin. ELEMIS White Brightening Even Tone Serum will restore balance and luminous radiance. Keep up your skin workout with the ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask and tingle your way to the silkiest softness. It is extremely common for brides to experience sudden and apparently alarming reactions in their skin (the run-up to weddings can be a stressful business after all), but don’t worry, the ELEMIS SOS Emergency Cream – nicknamed the ‘ELEMIS ambulance in a bottle’ – will gently tackle any unwanted behaviour head on. Just apply before you go to bed and wake up to a considerably calmer state of affairs.
The night before the big day
Ensure your beloved will be staring into refreshed-looking, hydrated eyes by using the gorgeously cooling and amazingly effective ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Hydra Gel Eye Masks for twenty minutes.

Now try and get some sleep – the first rule for great looking skin.
