Are you looking to introduce some lifestyle changes before your big day? Is your hectic schedule taking its toll on your skin and general wellbeing?
If so, relax, put your feet up and take note of these handy tips from Suffolk-based beauty expert Samantha Eaton.
Sam says: Every bride wants to look and feel flawless on their wedding-day. Of course a make-up artist with a kit full of concealer and colour corrector can hide just about anything, but what about the getting-ready photos? If the thought of being snapped au naturel leaves you in a cold sweat, it's probably time to start that pre-wedding beauty routine. Here are a few simple tips to make sure you're ready for those #nofilter moments.
Staying hydrated is a great way to flush out toxins. Set yourself a daily goal and for added motivation why not treat yourself to an infuser water bottle? Add cucumber, lemon, lime, blueberries or raspberries and your skin will love you for it.

Skimp on sleep and your complexion can look dull and lifeless. Check out the This Works range for some award-winning sleep remedies.
❤ Treat your skin
Make an upfront investment in professional facials, it could mean you'll need to wear less make-up on your big day. Beauty therapists love to make people feel more confident and can advise on the best products to suit you and your goals.
❤ Clean eating
What you eat directly affects your hormones and can inflame acne, eczema and psoriasis. Keep a food diary and note any changes to your complexion, good or bad. Boost your immunity with things like ginger, turmeric and echinacea.
❤ Perfect peepers
Good lashes and brows can make a huge difference to your wedding make-up. Lash lifts are great for brides and last up to 12 weeks. I usually advise having it done a week before your wedding. For your brows there's everything from microblading to HD brows. A regular visit to a salon offering a tailored brow service will ensure any gaps are filled in and your therapist can remove any unwanted hairs and start to design the shape that best suits you.
