Countdown To Your Wedding Day

Your complete beauty countdown...

Wherever your wedding - city, country or beach - you'll need a least 3 months to prepare your beauty routine to make sure you have your best head to toe complexion on your wedding day.

5-6 Months to go

Kick off your wedding beauty prep by taking the time to exfoliate head-to-toe at least once a week. Investing in powerful skincare is your fast-track to a beautiful skin. Add a nourishing facial oil, intense eye cream and hydrating moisturiser to your skincare arsenal for best results.

3-4 Months to go:

Start putting together a moodboard of some hairstyles and make up looks that you like. If you're thinking about self-tan, start experimenting now. It's not hard to do but with practice it gets even easier so you'll be a dab hand at it as your wedding day approaches.

1-2 Months to go:

Groomed brows can define your whole face. See an expert in store at Debenhams who can advise you. Get into the habit of exfoliating and moisturising your body especially the places that often get neglected like your elbows, hands and feet.

2 Weeks to go

Treat yourself to a facial that can boost skin radiance, shrink pores and calm stressed skin. This is the right time to have a facial as they can bring out blemishes so it gives your skin time to recover and draw out all the impurities.

3 Days to go

Get waxed at least 3 days before your big day so skin can have time to settle. Use smoothing and calming moisturisers to reduce redness and minimise irritation so that skin feels soft by the time your big day arrives.

2 Days to go

Get a manicure and pedicure. Opt for chip-free or longlasting polishes and treatments with staying power. Gel polishes are a favourite during wedding season. Treat your cuticles too with an oil so that hands and feet look perfect.

Day of the wedding

Give your skin a boost of radiance by using a primer that helps to even out the skintone and makes for better make up application. Use serums to enhance your glow and a powerful hydrating moisturiser.
