As a makeup artist, I get asked all the time “what’s the best way to care for my skin before my wedding?”
Makeup (whether for your Big Day, or any other day) should be about enhancing your natural beauty and attributes, not piling on product to cover something up, and when your skin is fresh, clear, smooth and even, makeup goes on smoother, easier and can look effortlessly beautiful. And who doesn’t want that extra glow that comes from happy, healthy skin? The good news is, healthy, even, pretty skin is so much more attainable that people think. No fancy med spas, painful procedures or ridiculously pricey potions needed. So here’s a look at my favorite (and simple!) clear skin regime that’s perfect for your trip down the aisle.
Wash your face with your regular cleanser, pat dry and apply good old fashioned witch hazel directly to your skin using a cotton ball. This natural astringent gently tones and cleanses your skin while drastically shrinking your pores, without the harshness of alcohol like a lot of other toners! My favorite is Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel (the smell is divine!)

Next step, my all time favorite skin care secret weapon: pure jojoba oil! It’s what can really be considered a superfood for your skin and is one of those cases where the ingredient actually lives up to the hype. Jojoba not only moisturizes skin, which you would expect from a natural oil, but it is similar to our own skin oils, which means it absorbs readily and works for all skin types. Of course, its benefits don’t end there—jojoba also helps tame inflammation, kill bacteria, reduce acne breakouts, heal wounds, and more. I use this an all-over moisturizer after cleansing and toning before bedtime, and it can also be added to your liquid foundation (just one drop) for an all-day glow and extra boost of moisture and radiance! And don’t be scared to try an oil if you have oily skin, because ironically, the best way to fight oil is with a natural oil. My favorite jojoba oil is Now Solutions 100% pure Jojoba Oil.
