Preparing for your wedding can be a catch-22. You want to look your best, but the stress of planning can wreak havoc on your skin. It’s bad enough that stress can dampen your excitement for what should be an exciting time, but it also weakens your immune system and can disrupt your sleep. These factors combined may lead to puffier bags under your eyes, blemishes, and dull skin.

Luckily, Swedish beauty-tech brand FOREO, known for its cutting-edge facial brushes and beauty gadgets, has a guide for how to treat your skin during stressful times.
As dead skin cells accumulate on the skin surface, they completely disable light reflection, resulting in a lifeless skin complexion. Regular exfoliation should be very high on the list of priorities as it will leave skin glowing and looking fresh. Using gentle facial cleansers might speed things up since they are more efficient and they work hand in hand with FOREO’s LUNA 2 – a strong, yet gentle, device that exfoliates dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and removes up to 99.5% of dirt, oil, and makeup residue, leaving your skin clean and luminous.
Once your skin is clean and fresh, it’s time to add a bit of moisturizer. This will boost hydration in your skin, prevent flaking and dullness, and create a protective layer of moisture that lasts all day. Plus, a proper application of a face cream will help anti-aging ingredients work better altogether, giving you a much-desired glow on your special day. Oh, and don’t forget – the skin needs to be moisturized from within as well, so drinking water and staying hydrated is crucial for healthy and beautiful skin.
Don’t Forget About the Eyes
Planning your big day may take a toll on your sleep, thus leaving you drained and weary. Nothing makes us look more tired and stressed than puffy eyes. Dark circles and bags under eyes are never a pretty sight; however, FOREO has a little trick that will give your eyes a complete makeover. IRIS, the eye massager, uses T-Sonic technology to mimic traditional finger-tapping massaging, which facilitates lymphatic drainage, thereby diminishing under-eye bags. With IRIS by your side, you’ll have that mesmerizing dreamy look, crucial for the bride halo effect.
