Your Bridal Beauty Plan: Which Treatments to Get & When

Congratulations on saying “yes!” and beginning your journey toward marrying the love of your life. Now, the fun begins! In addition to finding the dress of your dreams, scheduling some beauty treatments to get stunning skin for your big day might be at the top of your list as you start preparing for your special day. 


Use this handy timeline to help you decide which bridal skin treatments could be right for you and how far in advance to book them to ensure you look nothing short of magical walking down the aisle.

Customized Skincare Regimen

When to start: 9 to 12 months before

One of the first beauty-related bridal tasks to check off your list is to schedule an appointment to talk to your dermatologist about a customized skincare regimen that you can start now to look your best on your big day. 


Board-certified dermatologist at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center in Boca Raton & Fort Lauderdale Dr. Azza Halim told WeddingWire that it’s best to start planning your customized skincare regimen 9 to 12 months in advance. You not only want to make sure that the products have enough time to do their jobs, but you also don’t want to chance starting a new product close to your wedding day, only to find that your skin has a negative reaction to it.

Chemical Peels

When to start: 6 to 9 months before

There are various levels and types of chemical peels that can be used to brighten your complexion, achieve a smoother, more even skin tone and texture, and improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and more. However, the right peel ingredients and strength for you will largely depend on your skin type and specific needs. For some people, a series of peels will yield the best results. 


For these reasons, consult your dermatologist about your chemical peel options around 6 to 9 months before your wedding day. This should give you ample time to schedule multiple peels, allowing your skin plenty of time to heal to reveal smooth, radiant results.
