5 Last Minute Beauty Tricks For Your Wedding

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

1) No Glow? No problem. Coconut Water.

This magic elixir is here for you, in more ways than one! Drink it up, soak it up, or why not try both?! It’s the ultimate 2fer! Coconut water helps clear toxins from your skin AND makes sure you are totally glowing on your Big Day! You should notice more radiant and moisturized skin by the time you walk down the aisle.

2) Pore me? Ice, Ice, Baby.

Stress and adrenaline can take a toll on your skin. The countdown to the wedding can certainly contribute! Here’s a cool solution- ice cubes. It’s your special day, so don’t sweat the small stuff.

3) Case of the Casper? 2 words. Spray Tan.

This trick is nothing new, but if spraying isn’t in your normal beauty routine then we advise that you try spraying in advance. We’ve seen Bride Wars. It’s important to not overdo and to also choose a shade that works with your natural skin tone. We also like that you can achieve the sun-kissed skin with minimal time required!

4) 50 Shades of Whiter Teeth! That’s Something to Smile About. Charcoal Capsules.

Surprisingly, charcoal is very effective at removing stains on your teeth. Activated charcoal capsules are sold as dietary supplements at most health stores so if you ingest a little, you’ll be okay. Crack a capsule open and dip a wet toothbrush in the charcoal and brush lightly for a few minutes. Make sure you don’t scrub too hard because the jury is still out on whether it’s abrasive enough to damage your enamel.

5) What’s taking so long!? Hair’s the plan: Extensions or Biotin.

While patience is a virtue, time is also of the essence. Want instant longer locks? Have some fun and try extensions. Want to grow your own? Biotin is the ultimate go-to vitamin. Your hair will thank you!
