BRIDAL PREP WITH PEVONIA
Big Day Fast Approaching?
It’s not long now until the Wedding March will be played, confetti thrown, emotional speeches (cue the hankies), cake is cut and that all important first dance. With so much to think about, have you had much time to think about YOURSELF?
No? We thought so. It’s surprising how time flies, and once all the little bits are finalised, treat yourself to some treatments, and if you are super organised, a few months before the big day, start a facial plan. By the big day, your skin will look flawless.
Here’s a selection of treatments and homecare products we highly recommend to all you beautiful brides to be:
We at HQ nickname this the Bride to be Facial, as it’s the perfect treatment which gives the most amazing results, all brides hope for. The Lumafirm™ Lift & Glow Facial is formulated with freeze-dried technology to deliver instant results. It really is performance driven, as it features the best anti-ageing ingredients, rendering the skin ultra-luminous with a firmer, tighter and more youthful defined appearance. You will also notice an improvement in skin texture, increased skin elasticity and firmness, evened complexion, and an instantly brightened glow.
Booking a course of these will really boost results. I got married a few months ago and I did just this. I had 3 months of facials and spaced them out when I could but was going on average every 2 weeks. I also used the homecare products, which is not just a selling tool from the therapists, these are so important as they will prolong the results from the high-end facial and keep skin looking soooo good. I truly had so many lovely complements about my skin in those months leading up to the wedding, something was definitely working!
Another clever little facial to consider is the Luminous C & Sea Facial, which you guessed it, contains Vitamin C and ingredients from the Sea! To be more specific, a blend of stabilised Vitamin ‘C’, along with Seaweed and Squalane Oil. This combination is ideal for reducing fine lines, strengthening elasticity and providing relief for dull, sun-damaged skin. It also sets to a soft lift-off mask, and once skin is left feeling extremely smooth and instantly bright.
We’ve got the face sorted, so now for the body. And there is one treatment for brides which is an absolute must, and yes, wraps sound scary, but I promise you they are far from it and incredibly relaxing. Containing 26, yes 26 ingredients, this super wrap deeply repairs, hydrates, smooths and leaves every inch of your skin velvety soft. My skin looked so even and firmer, which is definitely what I wanted. The next day, it really looked brighter, this is perfect as my back was on show in my wedding dress and I felt much more confident showing it off. I’d recommend having a few of these 4 weeks leading up to the big day.
Having had some wonderful treatments, you definitely want the results to last as long as they can. By using products from the same collection as the treatment you had, will prolong those results and keep skin looking it’s best for the big day. The Lumafirm™ Repair Cream is essential if you have had the facials as it has all those wonderful benefits, plus will continue to repair, lift, and make skin glow. Plus, you can use it morning and night, no need to buy a separate night cream.
Something which is often overlooked is the eyes. Invest in a good eye product, it’s amazing what a difference it makes to the whole face when the eyes are brighter and skin smoother. Part of the Lumafirm Collection is the award-winning Lumafirm® Eye Contour Lift + Glow. It’s very powerful, as results can be seen straight away. It smoothes lines and wrinkles, plus lightens the whole area, diminishing dark circles and reduced puffiness. Music to my ears!
More award-winning products to try, and my personal favourite, the De-Ageing Saltmousse – Papaya and Pineapple. If you haven’t tried this, you absolutely must! It really is unlike any other spa exfoliating product, as it infuses the skin with dehydrated sea water known for its natural concentration of minerals. Exfoliating, smoothing, and deeply mineralising, the De-Ageing Saltmousse has the most wonderful smell too. It leaves skin very, very smooth and I paired it with it’s other-half, the De-Ageing Body Balm – Papaya and Pineapple. Rich and creamy, this balm is formulated with Shea Butter, Tegospheres with Retinol, Pomegranate extract and anti-ageing tropical fruits extracts. My skin felt so soft, I couldn’t help but stroke myself!
Walking down that aisle, looking like a total beauty is the best feeling and one which every bride deserves.
