Nail big-day radiance with these tips from natural skincare brand, Jurlique
The secret to feeling your most confident on your big day is radiant skin, and to get the best results we recommend starting your preparation long before you say 'I do' so we’ve teamed up with Australian skin care brand Jurlique to get expert advice on how to get healthy, radiant skin in five easy to follow steps.
For best results, start this radiant skin ritual four to six weeks before the big day, but if you are a last-minute bride to be or a guest, adopting these simple steps a few days before the event will leave you with a luminous complexion and feeling your best.
Step 1: Cleanse away the day
To boost your pre-ceremony glow, we recommend you cleanse your skin twice a day using Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Cleansing Mousse. This silky foaming cleansing oil is a rich blend of botanical oils including extracts of Jojoba, Grape Seed, Safflower, Rose Hip and Starflower to gently and effectively cleanse and lift away make-up and impurities and help renew your skin, leaving it feeling and looking fresh and radiant.
Top tip: If you wear make-up be sure to double cleanse in the evening, once to remove makeup and once to deeply cleanse the skin. You’ll notice a difference the first time you use this product but the more you use it the more radiant your skin will become.
"If you don’t cleanse properly and regularly skin will start to look dull with an uneven texture and surface imperfections like blackheads will be more common, resulting in skin losing its healthy glow." – Claire Roberts, Jurlique Beauty Expert
Step 2: Activate your skin’s ability to retain moisture
Keeping your skin well-hydrated allows it to function normally, stay healthy, and retain its smooth and soft appearance. But there are many factors that can cause skin to become dehydrated – from the natural ageing process, to exposure to elements such as air conditioning, weather and pollution.
Rich in Marshmallow Root Extract, Jurlique’s Activating Water Essence delivers lasting hydration while protecting skin from moisture loss. It leaves skin feeling soft and healthy, and ready to absorb the full benefits of the rest of your skin care ritual.
Step 3: Rejuvenate your skins youthful glow!
Your must-have step for radiant healthy skin! Jurlique’s best-selling Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum helps smooth the appearance of fine lines, revitalise skin, and restore its natural glow. 87% of women saw a significant improvement in skin dullness in 7 days*. Apply 1-2 pumps of this concentrated anti-ageing serum morning and night, after misting and before you moisturise.
Top tip: Use this serum as a natural highlighter! Before applying your foundation, press a small amount into the areas you wish to add extra radiance, and watch your skin glow with confidence.
Step 4: Two precious drops to enrich your skin
Rich in pure, concentrated plant oils, Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Face Oil leaves your skin looking fresh, supple and dewy and is a star product to restore your skin’s natural radiance and vitality. Its nourishing botanical blend addresses dryness, dehydration and uneven skin texture while protecting your skin from moisture loss.
Top tip: There are times when your skin needs an extra boost – for example, when the changing seasons cause it to dry out and look dull. Incorporating a face oil into your skin care ritual is easy. Simply add one to two precious drops to your moisturiser for an instant radiance boost.
Step 5: Bright-eyed bride
The skin around your eyes is one of the most delicate areas of your body – and it shows the signs of age, stress and lack of sleep more easily than the rest of your face.
This little bottle of natural magic will help to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines too! Use Jurlique’s Herbal Recovery Advanced Eye Serum morning and night and those eyes will be bright and beautiful by your big day.
Top tip: Keep re-frigerated for a cool a refreshing morning pick-me-up! The cucumber and aloe will leave your eyes feeling bright and awake.
Step 6: Skin that visibly glows
Finish your skin care ritual by deeply hydrating your skin and rejuvenating its youthful glow with Jurlique’s NEW Herbal Recovery Advanced Day Cream.
The star ingredient Japanese Cedar Bud extract, is drawn from the young shoots of Japanese cedar trees. Japanese Cedar Bud extract is known to help give you a visibly younger-looking complexion. Its smoothing effect helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and leaves skin softer, more supple, and visibly glowing. 87% of women agreed skin appears visibly healthier.**
Top tip: Warm moisturiser between your fingertips to activate the natural plant oils, increase absorption, and enhance the sensorial experience. Once warmed, press into face and neck using a gentle press and release motion.
