We love a good wedding at CLOUD NINE HQ and while we are enjoying the build-up to Christmas, we can't help but look forward to wedding season at the same time.
In six months we will be at the beginning of the 2023 weddings and according to skincare experts, there is no better time than right now to start the skincare prep...
six months before the big day
Vitamin C and/or retinol will be a great addition to your skincare routine if you don't already use them. Beginning an AM and PM skincare ritual is the perfect way to introduce your skin to new products and create a new self-care routine ahead of your big day. Vitamin C can be used in the morning in the form of serums or moisturisers. Vitamin C can vary in strength and make skin more sensitive to sunlight so whatever strength, don't forget to use an SPF. Retinols at low doses can be used in the evening once or twice a week, discuss with a skincare expert to find the right routine for you. Low-dose retinol is the best to begin with so your skin can adjust and you can gradually build up the strength if you need to over the next six months. The combination will leave skin brighter, clearer improve smoothness and hyperpigmentation. Again an SPF is a must when you introduce retinol to your routine.
*If you are considering injectables, filler, peels, or any other advanced skincare, now or up to 12 months in advance is the time to start. Do your research and find a qualified skincare expert to create a pre-wedding plan that works for you. You can discuss your expectations for the day, the results you would like to achieve and any worries or concerns you might have.*

3 months before your wedding
Hydration, hydration, hydration. You have kickstarted your glow by using Vit C and retinol and now it's time to introduce some super hydrating products into your routine. The first step is to achieve the glow from within by making sure you are drinking enough water and eating a balanced diet. Try serums with hyaluronic acid, it holds five times its weight in water and penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to give skin the hydration boost it needs - resulting in glowing, gorgeous skin.
*Diet and lifestyle impacts the skin from within. Ensuring you are getting your five a day, staying hydrated, and keeping active will show on the skin as much as sugar, alcohol, smoking or too much sun will so keep a healthy balance and you will see the results.*
