Wedding day countdown

The ultimate guide for glowing bridal beauty

It’s a special time wedding planning. You’re making it official with your numero uno and it’s a chaotic and amazing experience throughout the lead-up. In between all the fun, wedding planning can also involve a lot of stressful decision making.

From the late nights and pre-wedding celebrations oozing with cheese and wine, to the non-stop planning and partying; it’s easy to see why many brides rock up to their hair and makeup trials with dull hair and looking like ‘breakout city’. Have no fear! We’re here to help you! The LoveCo Beauty team are leaders in bridal beauty and know all the tricks of the trade to make sure you feel your very best self.

Follow our hair, skin, body and mind guide to be your healthiest and happiest self on your special day.

HAIR: It’s time to repair and revitalise your hair. We recommend using a quality daily shampoo and conditioner as well as a weekly hair masque to have your hair bouncing with vitality like Kate Middleton’s. For hair colouring and styling, book in with LoveCo founder Mehrium to ensure you reach your desired colour and tone while protecting your hair’s health.

Products we recommend include: Innersense Organic Beauty Hydrating Hair Masque, Yarok Hair Feed Your Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.

SKIN:  Feel your best from the inside out. We recommend filling your plate up with orange coloured fruits and veggies such as papaya, oranges, yellow bell peppers, carrots and pumpkin. Packed with beta-carotene, vitamin A and vitamin C, these ingredients will help your skin glow and combat breakouts. The more you hydrate, sleep and eat well, the better you will look and feel. Try to avoid dairy, sugar and refined carbohydrates in the lead up to your wedding day. These nasties are responsible for breakouts.

Our final skin must-have is a visit to Amar at Amar Skin. As the go-to for pre-party oxygen facials and being a skin + brow perfectionist, Amar is well worth the visit (thank us later).

MIND: “Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds, you can either grow flowers or you can grow weeds.” LoveCo Beauty believes in practising self-love on the daily. Be kind to yourself in the lead up to your big day and cherish every moment. We recommend you give meditation a go whether it be on your daily commute, in the hairdresser’s chair or when you first wake up.

Recommended apps: Smiling Mind, Calm and 1 Giant Mind.

BODY: Exfoliate and moisturise. It’s highly likely you’ll be wanting to spray tan yourself silly with your bride tribe and why not? However, remember to prep your skin prior! If you’re looking to indulge, we recommend checking in at Willow Urban Retreat for their Rasayana Detox Body Scrub. You’ll be smelling cinnamon for days (yum). Alternatively, why not have a DIY pamper night at home?

Recommended product and treatment: Urban Willow Retreat Rasayana Detox Body Scrub, Zen Botanics Moisturising Grapefruit Body Scrub.
