Here I am, 4 months out and I've begun my final beauty regimen. After reading health and wellness articles, taking advice from my friends and just generally making a few decisions on my own, here are the things that I will be doing for the next 4 months to make my face look its best. 1. Oil Cleansing Method To make sure that my skin is radiant on June 16, a few months ago, I began a face washing routine called the oil cleansing method and let me tell you, it is absolutely amazing. I mix 3 parts castor oil, with 1 part olive oil and a few drops of tea tree oil, rub it on my face at night, wash it off with a warm washcloth and that's it! No face washing in the morning, no expensive products, nothing else! It might seem strange to wash your face with oil, but it feels SO good and so not greasy. Read up on it in this little article and you'll understand better why it works. From my perspective, this is the best way to wash your face out there (my face is less greasy, generally zit-free and just healthier).
2. Facials I read that it's not enough to simply have a facial before a big event, but that you always want to have a few (at least 3). So this weekend I had my first facial and I plan to have one a month from now until the wedding. Because I personally don't have the money to spend on facials at the top boutique spa in the area, I get my facials at my local beauty school for $21. They do a great job, charge a ton less and I like knowing that I helped someone practice their skills!
3. Makeup I'm not a big makeup buyer, but over the next few months, I'll be trying out a few products to find somethings I really love. Below are the few makeup standards that I am currently in love with. I'm on the look out for a new mascara, so if you have something you can't get enough of, let me know.
What's your beauty regimen for your big day? Am I missing something?
