These options are far better than baking in the glow of a tanning salon's lamp. Sunless tanners have come a long way and offer beautiful sun- kissed skin that your friends may believe that you just stepped off your very own private plane from the Mediterranean.


4. You Have Hair….Where?


Part of every good skin care regimen should include unwanted hair removal. Smooth skin makes an even canvas for the makeup to be applied on. Some hair removal, like shaving the legs, can be done at home. Other areas like the face or the nether regions need to be done by a licensed professional to prevent infection, ingrown hairs and burns. For people with more sensitive skin, tweezing or threading is sometimes a better option. Higher end salons and spas will also offer wax for more sensitive skin.


5. Roots Belong on Plants


There is nothing more frustrating than realizing your roots are showing through on the day of your wedding. There are many options when it comes to hair color from drug store, at home professional color, to getting your color done at a salon. The do-it-yourself options usually cost far less than the professional application, however – the formulations of the color are also very different. When used correctly, professional salon color is not as damaging to the hair and you are guaranteed a better end result. For those who do not like to color their hair, glosses do it best. This is a peroxide free way to add shine to the hair and make it softer and more manageable.


Secrets to “Having Your Makeup Last on Your Wedding Day”


Kim Carothers of Couture Makeup Design shares her tips on prepping your skin for the big day.


Getting your makeup to last all day on your Special Day


can be as stressful as searching for the ultimate wedding gown. It is very important that you begin to employ different strategies and take a creative approach in creating a “perfect canvas” for your skin for the Big Day. Most women feel that the whole skincare regimen is time consuming and that they are too busy to add it to their daily routine. Professional Makeup Artist, Kimberly Carothers (Couture Makeup Designs) adds that by investing the time and effort into skincare treatments and products that are appropriate for your skin type, it will ensure that when the makeup and other color products are applied, your skin will accentuate a flawless, glowing and healthy complexion.


Carothers recommends that brides start their


commitment to a regular skincare routine at least eight weeks before their wedding day by cleansing, toning, masking, exfoliating, and moisturizing. When choosing cleansers and other skincare products, it is recommended investing in pharmaceutical products over cosmeceutical products. The skin will benefit from the skincare products in that they will

penetrate the layers of the skin. When applying cosmeceutical products to the skin, the products will just remain on the top surface of your skin and will not go any further than that. Pharmaceutical products will work on all three layers of the skin which include the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. The dermis, being the middle layer and the subcutaneous tissue, the bottom layer, are the most important layers of the anatomy of the skin. These two layers help promote the elasticity and collagen in your skin which keeps the outer layer, the epidermis, firm and tight.


It is very important to choose skincare products that


are right for your skin type. If your skin is dry, consider using a rich creamy-like cleanser that will provide moisture to the skin. If your skin is oily, you will want to use a gel-like cleanser that is not rich in hydration. It is also important that you moisturize day and night as you are working on creating the perfect canvas for your skin.
