1. Teeth Whitening Strips, Trays, & Gels
Of course, our smiles are a big concern when it comes to weddings. It is easily one of the most photographed days of your life, so a dazzling smile is a must! It is so easy to achieve a whiter smile with the many products on the market. From Crest White Strips and the numerous whitening toothpastes to a deluxe whitening light, you won’t have to break the bank for a gorgeous smile!
2. Face Masks
I have to admit, face masks are my thing! They are my number one go-to for a little R&R, and I love that I can do them sitting on my couch while binging Real Housewives. Plus, there’s a face mask for every skin concern! I personally keep going back to L’Oreal’s clay masks and the Yes To brand depending on what I need.
3. Cuticle Oils
Along with photos of your skin and smile, your hands are going to be photographed and looked at a lot. No one wants jagged, peeling cuticles around that fab manicure and sparkling ring! Grab some quick cuticle oil from your local drugstore to keep your cuticles hydrated and in great shape before your big day. Sally Hansen, Essie, and Burt’s Bees all have great options!
4. Hair Masks
We can’t forget about giving your strands some love too! Hair masks are so easy to do! Whether it’s a quick 5 minute in-shower mask or a longer split end treatment, this is wonderful for keeping your ends and dryness in check! Say hello to healthy, shiny hair! My favorite is definitely Kristin Ess’s daily scalp mask from Target!
Skincare is a very popular topic these days, especially when it comes to bridal beauty! We all want clear, glowing skin and there are so many routes to get there! From holy grail moisturizers and new retinol serums to quick acne treatments, your local drugstore has it. It’s also the perfect opportunity to try a few different methods to see what works for you without breaking the bank. Check out tried-and-true products like CeraVe Facial Cleanser and Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 for a smoother, healthier complexion!
6. Lip Scrubs
Flaky, dry lips with patchy looking lipstick? A definite no-no for your nuptials! Try a low-cost lip scrub to get your lips in tip top shape! Or better yet, grab the ingredients and make your own!
7. Jade Rollers
This handheld massage tool is really making a name for itself within the beauty industry! If you’ve not heard of this yet, the jade roller is known for plumping the skin and improving circulation. It also reduces redness, inflammation, dark circles, and wrinkles! Paired with your favorite oil or cream, this is a perfect way to relax before bed and your big day!
