Get Your Skin Glowing
Whether you’re preparing for your own big day, or have a special occasion this Summer, having glowing, healthy looking skin is an instant way to feel more confident, and allow your makeup to look it’s best. Recently over on Be My Bride, we worked with Elemis for the launch of the Bridal Beauty Countdown box; a collection of three of our favourite products from the brand that can help get your skin looking its very best ahead of your big day.
Ideally, you want to begin your skincare prep as far in advance as you possibly can, I’d suggest 3 months or more, and nothing makes a bigger difference than a thorough cleansing routine. Living in London, my skin is challenged on a daily basis by pollution; fumes, dirt and chemicals are not only on the roads and underground network in central London, but in our homes too, and our skin isn’t happy about it! Instead of cleansing before bed, I like to cleanse as soon as I’m home in the early evening, getting the day’s dirt and makeup (not a nice thought I know!) off my skin as soon as possible, and give plenty of time for my skin to breathe before I go to bed.
A thoroughly pampering and incredibly effective product to use for this deep cleanse is the Elemis Pro Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm. I use a micellar water on a reusable cotton pad first to remove makeup, and then deep cleanse and massage my skin with the Cleansing Balm. With a heavenly light scent, the most delicious consistency, it truly is the best part of my evening routine. I apply a grape sized amount to my skin, and massage it in using circular motions to remove any remaining dirt from my complexion. The silky texture is just beautiful to use, perfect for an everyday pamper and treat!

The kit contains a full size Rose Cleansing Balm, full size Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads, and two sets of the Hydra Gel Eye masks. Worth £95 – priced at £65.
Also full sized, and included within the Bridal Beauty Countdown box are the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads. Super quick and easy to use, adding these gently exfoliating pads into your skincare routine is a way of keeping your skin looking fresh and healthy as they gently encourage the skins cell renewal cycle. I like to use these after cleansing 2/3 times a week in the evenings, swiping over clean skin on my face and down my neck too.
Finally the Bridal Beauty Countdown box also includes two pouches of the Hydra Gel Eye Masks. These wonderful little sachets contain patches to place on the delicate skin under the eyes to brighten and hydrate the area. I love to use these after long haul flights to rehydrate the area and reduce puffiness, but they’re also brilliant ahead of special occasions so I’ll definitely be using these the morning of my big day!
