HYDRATING MISTThis is one of the easiest ways to deliver hydration to your face, anytime of the day. Pick one that can go under and over your makeup.

The skin under your eyes is one of the most sensitive and thinnest parts of the body. Thats why it is so quick to react to any sign of tiredness or stress. It’s important to use the right amount of nourishment, if you use products that are too rich for such a sensitive area, you can get what are called ‘milia’; those little white bumps that form under your eye. Using products specifically designed for that area will ensure you get enough hydration without overdoing it. Look for something with a high water content, as that will treat any inflammation or ‘bags’.

It’s important to get rid of any flaky skin to ensure your makeup goes on flawlessly. A physical scrub can irritate sensitive skin and cause a rash or redness. It can sometimes be best to use a liquid exfoliator to reduce the risk of causing any irritations. You might feel a tingling sensation, but that’s perfectly normal! Look for something with salicylic acid or a natural alternative of willow bark to exfoliate and soothe the skin.

6. HYDRATING SERUMBHA Blackhead Power Liquid

This is a vital step in any skincare routine that ensures you get enough moisture into your skin to keep it plump and nourished. Because it is one of the thinnest products, this should be your first step after your cleanser. This can be layered if you’re feeling particularly dry in the lead up to your wedding. Test the consistency on the back of your hand. A tacky finish can be great for a flawless foundation application, or alternatively, a product that absorbs immediately will help you start with a clean and fresh base. Look for a serum that contains minimal alcohol so that it doesn’t dry you out further!
