Looking radiant from the outside starts with taking care of your health from within. Courteney Johnson from The Design Juicery shares her top tips for achieving that coveted bridal glow.
Fuel Your Skin
Filling your body with healthy fuel will help to promote a clear complexion, bright eyes and a healthy glow. Look for food that’s rich in vitamins, Omega-3, selenium and zinc – think dark, leafy vegetables, oily fish, nuts and seeds. Pair a healthy diet with ample hydration – around two litres of water a day will help the skin remain supple and clear.
When your body is overloaded with toxins, it recruits the skin to dispose of them, causing them to present in the forms of acne, eczema and a dry, dull look. Try promoting cellular cleansing through a cold-pressed juice detox – as well as regenerating the liver, it will help to heal the skin for a radiant, clear complexion. At The Design Juicery, we’ve just launched a Bridal Cleanse. Each cold-pressed juice is filled with detoxing dark greens, vitamin rich citrus, and skin clearing root veggies, complete with detoxifying facial masques and post-cleanse skin powders. This very special Bridal Cleanse focuses on achieving beautiful skin, bright eyes and a glow that radiates inside and out.
As well as encouraging healthy circulation and vibrant skin, regular exercise releases endorphins – great for boosting your mood and releasing planning-induced stress!
A good dry bristle brush is an essential but underrated tool for improving circulation, removing dead skin cells and stimulating the lymphatic system – all helpful for improving both the tone and texture of skin.
