Summer is here, and so is wedding season. If your big day is fast approaching, you’re busy planning and preparing for the day you have long dreamed of, followed by a week of relaxation with the love of your life. Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her big day. Check out these five tips to help you be the glowing, gorgeous bride with a rocking bikini bod.
Exercise, eat a healthy diet, and drink a lot of H2O: This is an obvious one, but seriously do anything to eat right and get your body moving. Even if it is just twenty minutes a day, this will do wonders to boost that metabolism and give you that extra energy kick you need to get you through the day. Regular exercise improves circulation, which keeps your skin healthy and vibrant. A healthy diet will help you look and feel your best while walking down the aisle or strutting around in that perfect honeymoon bikini. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. But always remember ladies; water is the most potent fat burner, period. Make your water bottle becomes your new best friend, fill it up at least 8 times a day and take it everywhere you go. Don’t let time spent planning your wedding become an excuse for not working out. Try to start a diet and exercise plan, and stick with it.
Get plenty of sleep: you'll be better able to deal with any wedding complications if you aren't sleep deprived. Your skin will look more radiant with adequate sleep and you’ll feel energetic and great, too. The amount of sleep you need varies from person to person, but make sure you're getting enough. Make an effort to incorporate physical activity into your day to promote a good night's sleep.
Get waxed Early: Need we say more? Waxing will give you silky, healthy, smooth, hair free skin. Waxing your legs, upper lip, armpits and bikini are essential for you to eliminate time spent in the shower, and instead focus your time at the beach or in the mountains with your loved one on your honeymoon. Planning for your wedding or honeymoon can be a very stressful time, either way you shouldn’t have to worry about grooming during them. If done correctly your wax will last for 3-4 weeks, which means that one waxing session before the big day will lead to smooth skin for your honeymoon as well, so forget that razor at home. Get your skin used to waxing and start getting regular treatments right away!
* One big tip though: Make sure to start your waxing routine BEFORE your big day. If you have never been waxed before it’s hard to tell how your skin will react. So doing a few test waxing appointments the months leading up the wedding will not only help with your skins reaction, but will also ensure that when the time comes your wax will likely be less painful (due to less hair re-growth) and will last much longer.
Get pampered: We know you have a million of things to get done before the big day, but you need to take time to relax and pamper yourself. Start by scheduling a spa day, enjoy a massage and free your mind of the wedding day stresses. After your massage, get a manicure and pedicure. Your ring will look so amazing with a set of freshly painted nails.
ENJOY yourself! It’s all to easy to get caught up in the stresses of wedding planning, so often that many couples forget how to live in the moment and spend way to much time wrapped in planning for upcoming events. Enjoy the little time you do have with your close friends and family. Nothing ever goes exactly as planned, so just try to relax as much as possible, make things simple, and enjoy all the planning leading up to the best day of your life, followed by week of celebrating your love for one another
