Plan to pamper

The build-up to looking radiant on your wedding day includes treatments to condition your skin, hair and body, ensuring a polished look that will see you picture perfect on your wedding day.

Professional beauty therapists offer a range of relaxing, nurturing face and body treatments. When you are discussing your wedding date arrange a consultation to help draw up a personalised skin and beauty programme. Schedule in regular exercise and make fruits, vegetables, lean protein and lots of water part of your daily way of life.

Discuss your skin type with your cosmetician, get into a regular skin care routine and take advice on their product

recommendations. Don't forget to book a makeup and hair stylist for yourself, bridesmaids and others on the day for a total wedding party look.

Just as you'll want a dry run with your hair you should also have a makeup trial run a few weeks before the wedding. If you'd like a spray tan arrange for a trial to make sure it's a natural looking, flattering hue.

If your skin starts to feel the strain in the countdown to the wedding, treat yourself, and your bridesmaids to a professional facial and a massage. Your beautician will be able to help with problems such as spots and facial hair.

Don't forget the all important manicure and pedicure.

A week before the big day your eyelashes and eyebrows could be tinted and your legs will need waxing. A special massage a few days before with your bridesmaids could be the perfect indulgence and a chance to relax before the wedding.
