The second rule is to follow the essential rules for self-care – eat healthy, exercise, drink lots of water, maintain good sleep hygiene, and manage stress in ways that work for you. You will always shine brightest when you’re relaxed and happy.
You can also use these questions to guide you to a wedding-ready complexion.
When should I start
The earlier you start, the better. Time allows you to choose from a variety of treatments and to budget for your Treatment.
Remember that some treatments require downtime, while others take longer to produce visible results.
As you approach the big day, you will want to use less and less of your creativity regarding services and products. It would be best to begin with a consultation with a trusted advisor to help navigate this process.
What is the best way to contact someone
Search engines and review websites are great places to start.
Ask around. Nothing beats a recommendation from someone you trust or believe has the desired results.
What is the best place to start
Consultations are always an excellent place to begin. It’s a good idea to consult with several sites before choosing one if you are new to the services world.
Some clinics and spas offer free consultations. Others may charge a small amount, which can be applied to your chosen services.
A skincare consultation can be a great way to spend time and money and discuss your wants and needs. Before investing in full treatments, it’s best to check if you are comfortable with the person.
What can I expect during my consultation with a skincare specialist
It is always good to have options and realistic expectations. You should consult with an esthetician (or other licensed professional) and a nurse. They will examine different skin problems and treatment options, but the final recommendations should be harmonious.
Do not be intimidated by a detailed plan. Once you’ve explored all the options available, you can decide what is most comfortable for you.
Be honest with yourself about what you want and are comfortable with. It’s the last thing anyone wants, and communication up front is critical. Start with a simple treatment to get a feel for the experience before you commit to a package.
It’s time to shine!
