Your wedding day is fast approaching! You have spent hours thinking about the perfect day with everything from the flowers, to the venue, to the food. Pinterest has been your best friend during the planning process as you’ve been thinking of ideas for decorations and centerpieces. All of the details have been thought over and decided on, but sometimes there are a few things that might slip your mind - and they start with you! There are some not-so-common wedding prep ideas that will get you and your fiancé ready for the best day of your life!
Long Hair, Don’t Care
You want to look your best on your wedding day, and it all starts with having great hair. Hair grows about ¼ of an inch on average over a month. When you are going meeting with your stylist to get a trim, keep this in mind. Take a look at hairstyles months in advance, so you can have an idea of how long your hair should be to achieve the look you’re going for. Hum offers hair gummies, which are packed with vitamins to help promote healthy hair follicles and growth, making your locks shiny and full. Grooms want to feel confident too when they get to see their bride walking down the aisle, and ⅔ of men by the age of 35 will start to have some sort of hair loss. Get ahead of your thinning hair and try Finasteride, which treats male pattern baldness. If you are noticing thinning or balding around your crown and middle of scalp, you’ll notice thicker hair and slower loss when you start taking the medicine. With a telemedicine company like Hims, you’re able to chat with doctors online and they can send you the prescription right to your door. No awkward convos or long office wait times. Your hair will be looking lucious for your big day and you’ll look great in pictures!
Glowing And Showing
It is important to remember that pictures last a lifetime. With that being said, many people get nervous to try expensive products on their face if they’re unsure of how their skin will react. If you are looking for healthy alternative ways to keep your skin looking good, simply try switching up your diet. Walnuts are packed with collagen and are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which helps to improve the elasticity in your skin and prevent sagging. Your skin will stay plump and youthful. Kale is a fantastic leafy green and a superfood. It is rich in Vitamin A, which is a main ingredient in Retin-A, a medication that helps to fight acne. Here are some kale recipes to try out if you are looking for ways to incorporate it into your daily meals.
Often in the months leading up to your wedding, so much time is spent on improving your physical appearance that your mental health can be neglected. Keeping your mind healthy is extremely important when it comes to making rational decisions leading up to your special day. Calm is an app for your smartphone that offers mediation programs that help you reduce anxiety, sleep better, and feel happier. Being able to relax using your phone is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time and are on the go.
Take a second to breathe and remember to enjoy the planning process. You will be well on your way to making this the best day of your life, looking good and feeling great! All in all, it is the little changes in your lifestyle that will ultimately lead to bigger changes in your body and mind. You will be able to create memories that will last a lifetime and your pictures will be perfect.
