My Pre-Wedding Skincare for Bright and Blemish-Free Skin

Pre-wedding skincare routine

Thank you Hip Apotheca for letting me try your Antipodes products and for sponsoring this post! I’m really excited with how fast the products have started to make an effect on my skin.

In less than right months, I’ll be getting married! That is literally no time at all. Because of this, I’ve been working a lot harder on making sure that I keep my skin happy so I can look and feel my absolute best on my special day.

My skin, a weird combination of dry/normal/cystic-acne, needs some special care. Here are the skincare products I’m currently using to keep my skin bright, moisturized, and blemish free. I was hoping my skin wouldn’t need acne products at 24 but it is still a bit of a problem.

See my pre-wedding skincare routine in the video above.

Products mentioned in this video:

  1. Antipodes Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser
  2. Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening Serum
  3. DIY coconut oil and glycerin moisturizer
  4. Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser (to take off my makeup, about once or twice a week)

Antipodes wedding skincare

The Antipodes products are aimed at brightening the skin with kiwi and hibiscus while targeting acne with honey. If you have oily skin you can still use the serum because it doesn’t add any extra moisture. Since my skin is more dry, I do need to make sure my moisturizer is intense to make up for this. You can get the Antipodes cleanser and serum for 15% off with the code BM2014. They are pricier products but after starting to see a brighter complexion after my first week (It’s almost been three weeks now) I feel like it’s worth it.

For taking off my makeup, I love the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. You can even use it on your eye makeup without feeling like your eyes are burning. I think this is my third or fourth bottle of this product.

Do you do any special face masks before big events?

    Hi Rebecca- what ratio of coconut oil to glycerine do you use? I use straight up coconut oil right now as my moisturizer, but would like to try adding glycerine in.

      Hi Rowan! I use equal parts of each, probably the total size of a quarter.

      Kindness is the best accessory,

    Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you know after that
    you can write otherwise it is difficult to write.
