Every bride wants to look her absolute best when she walks down the aisle. In order to look picture perfect, however, there are certain things you should avoid, and other things that you’ll want to add to your beauty regimen. These bridal beauty do’s and don’ts will help you look flawless for your big day:


Do drink plenty of water
About one month before your wedding date, make a habit out of drinking more water. This will keep your body and skin hydrated to give you a natural glow for your nuptials. If you get bored with the taste of water, try adding fresh fruit, such as lemon or orange slices, to enhance the flavor. You can also set reminders on your phone alerting you to pick up the water bottle and hydrate.

Don’t try new products
You don’t want to switch up your perfume, deodorant, laundry detergent, face wash, etc., right before the wedding. You don’t know what type of reaction you could get from using a new product, and nobody wants to take that gamble right before they walk down the aisle. Consider experimenting with new products after you say “I do.”

Do schedule a beauty trial run
Even if you’re set on a hair and makeup look for your wedding day, schedule a trial run first. This way, you can see exactly how it’s going to look and how it fits in with your wedding theme. You can ask your hairdresser or makeup artist to make tweaks so that it looks exactly how you imagined. You don’t want to realize that you’re not psyched about your wedding look right before you have to walk down the aisle. About two months before your nuptials, experiment with different makeup and hairstyles to see which combination is your favorite.

Don’t get a facial
Getting a facial a few days before your wedding sounds like a great idea. After all, who wouldn’t want clean and refreshed skin for the big day? But if your skin isn’t used to the products being used, your complexion could end up with a rash or several blemishes.

Do opt for waterproof cosmetics
Even if you don’t think you’re going to shed a tear on the day of your wedding, use waterproof makeup anyway. Better safe than sorry, right? Waterproof makeup also protects against sweat. You’ll be able to bust a move on the dance floor without worrying about your makeup smearing.
