Ahead of her wedding day, a bride has to sort out her trousseau, keep in touch with guests, coordinate or help her parents with D-Day arrangements and prepare to look her best. All this means more stress—no matter how many wedding professionals are there to help. Today, brides are much more aware too. There was a time when they would get a facial just two or three days before their big day and sometimes end up with skin problems such as rashes, scars, skin redness or pimples. Today, they spend more time researching the best available treatments and there are a host of services for their different requirements.
If possible, it is best if a bride-to-be sets aside six months or more to prepare her skin for her big day. And the first step is to make a check-list of the weak points she notices in her skin, such as excessive oil, T-zone, acne, combination dry skin or sensitive skin, blemishes, uneven skin tone, etc. After almost two decades of science and research, a bridal facial is now called a medi-facial and is performed only by trained professionals. These facials are more advanced than just a regular massage or scrubbing, and depending on the problem areas of the skin, the medi-facial serves to address her primary problem. A bride should meet a trusted dermatologist or cosmetic physician so she can receive the right advice on the treatment to serve her need. Before deciding on a treatment or time to be spent, a bride-to-be should refer to this checklist:
a) Is the person treating her qualified and experienced?
b) How many sittings would she need?
c) Would it include an invasive treatment, such as cutting open acne? (if that is the case she should make sure the salon has the best practices in hygiene standards)
d) Is there downtime or any side effects of the treatment? If yes, how can she combat it?
e) What results should she expect?
f) What are the cost implications?
At the end of the treatment, it is the bride’s prerogative to expect clean, firm, smooth, moisturised and less patchy-looking skin, which she should be happy with minus make-up. Here are some facials that brides-to-be can avail of :
Cellular Oxygen Rejuvenation Facials
The Cellular Oxygen Rejuvenation Facials is the fastest growing range at Blush Clinic. It incorporates cleansing, exfoliation, toning, stimulation and lifting of the skin. It is finished off with a choice of collagen masque. The oxygen infused on the skin helps revitalise tired skin, instantly brightening it. While the therapist waits for the product to permeate into the skin, the bride is pampered with a soothing neck and shoulder massage.
Age Preserve Facial
Age Preserve Facialsare the new range at Blush Clinic, perfect if a bride is looking for immediate visible results while emphasizing a long term approach to skincare that provides lasting benefits. The treatment combines professional skincare products, rich in collagen, with the expertise of highly trained therapists who offer a customized approach to benefit each individual’s skin type. The argon oil used in this line of facial therapy infuses the skin with a mega-dose of powerful peptides, natural antioxidants and organics that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles to immediately reveal smoother and tighter skin.
Skin Brightening Facial
A bridal skin regime is incomplete without a skin brightening facial. The Vitamin C treatment range in Blush has the exclusivity of using the electroporation machine, which provides safe and effective transdermal delivery of therapeutic solutions. It ensures that products such as Vitamin C serums reach the deeper skin layers. This technique helps rejuvenate the skin, promote collagen and elastin production, improve hydration and increase skin metabolism, leaving the bride looking radiant on her special day.
