Bridal Beauty Tips for Dry Skin, According to Bridal Makeup Artists

<strong>Start with a Solid Skincare Routine</strong>

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This is your skincare mantra from now until you say “I do.” Begin your journey with intense hydration. Iya advises, “For brides with dry skin, focus more on moisturizing and hydrating in the days leading up to your wedding. I’ve encountered clients whose skin is really dehydrated or really patchy, so they use very thick moisturizers just to make sure that on the day of their wedding, their skin is not as dry, and the makeup will apply better, it will apply more evenly.

Joan affirms this, saying “Magkakaiba tayo ng gamit na moisturizer. This time, mas emollient, mas effective for hydration.” Use a rich, emollient moisturizer right after you cleanse to lock in moisture. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, and ceramides that help restore the skin’s barrier.

Also, choose a hydrating cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Cream-based cleansers or cleansing oils are perfect for dry skin as they clean while also providing extra moisture.

Dry skin can benefit enormously from exfoliation, but it’s important to choose a gentle exfoliator. Be mindful of your skincare products, too. Add a nourishing serum or face oil to your routine.

<strong>Prep Your Skin Before the Wedding</strong>

A week before the wedding, start using hydrating masks regularly. Sheet masks or overnight masks with aloe vera or glycerin can boost your skin’s hydration and ensure it’s supple and plump on your wedding day.

Consider scheduling a hydrating facial with a professional a few days before the wedding. They can provide deep hydration treatments and gentle exfoliation that leave your skin smooth and bright.

<strong>Makeup for Dry Skin</strong>

Let’s talk about the makeup must-dos. On your wedding day, a hydrating primer will do wonders. It will smooth out any dry patches and create an even base for your foundation. A good primer will also make your makeup last longer.

Iya recommends, “Talagang use less powder and also you can use the products that are being marketed as hydrating. You can also try those skincare-infused makeup products.

Opt for a hydrating foundation that offers a dewy or satin finish. These foundations typically contain moisturizing ingredients and won’t settle into dry patches like matte finishes might. Apply with a damp beauty sponge for a flawless, hydrated look.

Use creams as much as possible,” advises Joan. Cream blushes and highlighters are ideal for dry skin as they blend seamlessly and add a touch of radiance without emphasizing dry areas.

Instead of powder, which can accentuate dryness, finish your makeup with a hydrating setting spray. It’ll lock everything in place and add an extra layer of moisture.

<strong>Final Touches</strong>

Even after makeup, hydrating spray ulit,” Joan suggests. Keep a hydrating mist handy throughout your wedding day to refresh your makeup and keep your skin dewy and glowing.

Now, it’s important to remember that your makeup is only as good as how you prep your skin. “Makeup has its limitations, and makeup could not answer problems with texture. So dapat ‘yung face mo should always be hydrated,” Joan says.

Iya also advises on addressing more persistent skin concerns. “If you have recurring skin issues na hindi maddress ng skincare, it’s best to consult your derma. Get the adequate skincare creams that you need.

With these skincare and makeup strategies, brides with dry skin can look forward to a day filled with love, joy, and a radiant complexion! Cheers to a stunning and unforgettable wedding!
