How I got My Skin Ready For My Wedding!!

This is something I keep getting asked from clients and my future brides. My Skincare Routine for my wedding. I started on my regime 7 months prior to the wedding which was in March. So bare this is mind when coming up with your own skincare plan! I believe in these products. But you will need to get advice from a professional therapist before starting on any of it.

I was so happy with the appearance and overall look and feel of my skin on the day of my wedding. How many people can say that? It’s really an investment. And I truly believe the better your skin, the better your make up will look in person and appear in photos.

My results were down to 2 product ranges. Both stocked at Rustiq Salons Carlow and Kilkenny. And yes a bit more on the pricey side when it comes to skincare but these are results driven and you will see changes in your skin with use. You get what you pay for!

The first product range is Advanced Nutrition Programme. Supplements to feed the skin from within!
The supplements I take are Skin Omegas, Super for dry skin and giving your skin a glow. The other were Vitamin A and Antioxidants which come together in the Skin Complete Pack. Vitamin A is used to treat Aging Skin and has been proven to get results.

The second product range is Environ. Having both in salon treatments and using all products at home to the best results.
My routine:
Pre-Cleanse Oil – The best way to remove your make up alongside a warm face cloth.
Cleansing Lotion – always double cleanse.
Moisturising Toner – there are no scrubs in this range, your toner is your exfoliator as it contains Lactic Acid it hydrates also.
Vita Peptide Eye gel – One of the only eye gels you can apply all around the lid.
AVST – Moisturiser, comes in ranges 1-5. You start on 1 and work your way up. This helps your skin acclimatise to the different levels of Vitamin A. I was on my second bottle of number 2 for my wedding. I’m currently on AVST 4.
Rad – SPF 15 applied every day over your moisturiser.

Extra products I used, at night Super Moisturiser for extra Hydration and Hydrating Oil Capsules for a piece of Luxury. I also applied the Hydrating Oil capsules on the morning of the wedding before I did my makeup. It gave the perfect base!
I was also applying the Revival Masque. This is dubbed ‘facelift in a jar’ instant results. You start of using this once per week for 10 minutes. Then work up your time and I was applying this almost every second night. Fab product, doesn’t contain Vitamin A. suitable for all skin types.

I had a Skin Scan with Deirdre from Environ and she recommended these products to me. These are very regular events at Rustiq so just ask when the next one is on if you would like to find out more.
As well as using all these products at home I also had many treatments in the Salon. The results are visible after 1 full treatment and definitely worth it.

I started with the Purify treatment, this micro-exfoliates and rehydrates the skin. It helps clears up and congestion and revives and refreshes the skin. We thought it was a good place to start.

I moved onto the Active Vitamin Treatment, packed with nourishing and anti-aging ingredients. I had several of these. These help with sun damage, pigmentation, dryness and uneven skin tone and scarring.

But as the big day got closer I focused on the Hydroboost. This Treatment is amazing for making your skin glow and plumping out all those lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is used in the treatment with hydrates and gives the best glow off your skin. This is suitable to have even the week of your wedding or actually any event you may have.

The products or treatments may not be cheap and although I work in Rustiq I paid for everything just as you would have to so I’m not just writing all this because I got handed a freebie! I love the products. I’m still using them and finally on AVST 4. And still try get myself a treatment once per month.

You want to look your best on one of the biggest days of your life when all eyes are on you.

Consultations are free with any of the therapists at Rustiq Salons. They will be able to help you on your road to fabulous skin and give you so much more knowledge about what is best for your skin.

Any Questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
