As we do quite often, the professionals at Val Vista Lakes in Gilbert have put together a list of some beauty-specific tips that every bride-to-be should know.

Pamper Yourself!

Yes, getting married involves some serious pampering. Take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to not only spoil your significant other, but spoil yourself. This is your chance to take a spa day…take twelve spa days to detox each month before the wedding.

Get those manicures and pedicures once a month, along with facials and massages. This will brighten your mood and release any tension and stress from wedding planning. It will also allow you to try different colors and styles on those toes, because you know they’ll be in A LOT of wedding photos, so get them prepared.

Start Fake-Tanning

Here in Arizona, it’s pretty easy to get that perfectly tanned look, even if you wait until the week of you wedding and lay out at the last second. But is that really a risk that you want to take? Not too mention it increase your cancer risk, which is the last thing you want to do. So, take your time with the ‘bronzing’ and start early. To save money and go DIY, use self-tanners that add a gradual tan look to your skin. Start these early and slowly and by your wedding you will look like you’ve been on vacation!

Start Exercising

It’s probably the last thing that you want to hear from our Gilbert wedding experts, but getting in a bit of exercise each week is a great stress reliever, tension reliever, and will just plain boost your mood. Even if it’s just a walk around the block with the dog, or perhaps 30-minutes on the elliptical, getting the heart pumping and the muscles working will help you better deal with the stresses of wedding planning.

Have Fun

When you smile, the whole world smiles with you…I think that’s a verse from a country song, but it’s true. When you’re happy and smiling and laughing, everyone around you can’t help but mirror your mood. Not only that, laughing and enjoying yourself can help with many aspects of beauty, including multiple aspects of skin health, heart health, and much more.

Beauty is something that is not just about the perfect makeup and hairstyle; it’s about the way that you feel on the inside. To be your most beautiful on your most perfect day, your Arizona wedding, think more about what makes you happy and relaxed on the inside rather then what makeup and hairstyle you’ll have.
