How To Get Glowing Skin For Your Wedding Day

22nd Aug 2016

We bring you the season’s latest miracle products, plus insider tips and tricks to leave you with skin as radiant on the outside as you feel on the inside…


With the pop of a question comes the inevitable pop of champagne. Luckily for you, your skin wholeheartedly approves. Containing grape-seed extract – one of the most powerful natural skincare ingredients – a good quality glass of bubble can give you skin-loving goodness that’s reportedly 20 to 50 times more potent than Vitamin C and E alone. It protects and boosts collagen and elastin; it combats against environmental free-radicals and oxidative stress and is said to generally ease the skin’s ageing process. Now, who’s for another glass?


Aesop’s Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque is the perfect solution for brides who fear the thought of deviating too far from their everyday routine. Treat yourself to this spa-worthy product twice weekly; simply leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse off with a warm cloth. Find it at Makers & Brothers, €41.

Created by Irish woman Sonia Deasy, there’s a new skincare brand on the block and it’s oh so deserving of your attention. Just last year, Pestle & Mortar began turning heads with their incredible Hyaluronic Serum, and now they’re back with a bang and their second product: a lightweight, hydrating moisturiser that’s luxurious without being heavy. Packed with free radical-fighting anti-oxidants, and boasting tri- and tetrapeptide technology, this skincare miracle stimulates natural collagen production, smooths fine lines and restores youthful elasticity. The packaging makes for the perfect bridal party gift too. Pestle & Mortar Hydrate, €48.

A necessary follow-on from their cult favourite Eight Hour Cream, this miracle oil combines a potent blend of moisturising ingredients, including Tsubaki Oil, to deliver intensive, all-over moisture for not just your face but body and hair too. The perfect multi-tasker for all skin types. And no greasy after-feel either; winner. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil, €35.
