Every bride wants to be beautiful on her wedding day. She wants that quintessential healthy glow that comes as much from the beauty of her body as it does from her excitement over the momentous celebration of her wedding. More, she wants those long lean lines that will allow her to look back at her wedding pictures with true pride.
Hydrate - We all should do this all the time anyway... during the last week before the wedding be sure to drink a full sixty four (64) ounces of water per day. That is just over three twenty ounce water bottles. Yes, that is a lot of water, but our bodies need that water to;
- Give your skin that soft, healthy glow, and
- Flush your bodies of excess salt and impurities. This allows our bodies to work their best and look their trimmest and healthiest just in time to outshine your
Food Choices - Just as the old adage says, 'garbage in, garbage out.' What we put into our bodies has a direct impact on how our body looks on our wedding day. During the last weeks prior to the wedding celebration, if we concentrate on eating lean proteins, and fresh fruits and vegetables as the bulk of our diet, we will give our bodies the opportunity to tone up as much as the time frame allows.
Salt - Salt is an essential component to life. But too much of a good thing is not a good thing, and most of us get too much. More to the point, as we approach our wedding day and want to look as slender and healthy as possible, we are well advised to limit our total daily intake of salt by avoiding salty food entirely and only using the salt sparingly. Why? Because the more salt we have in our system, the more we will retain water instead of allowing the water to flush our system of impurities as it is designed to do.
Makeup - Makeup is arguably a bride’s best friend on her wedding day. It helps her look fresh… and it can also help to give her the appearance of having lost weight in time for her wedding regardless of whether she did or not. How? Simply by the use of highlighting techniques in the area of the cheekbone. Put in the most basic terms this beauty tip involves using a lighter shade on the top of the cheekbones and a darker shade underneath to create the illusion of sunken cheeks. To pull this off a bride should:
- Play with it in advance,
- Stop by a cosmetics counter for a little free advice on pulling it off, or
- Hire a specialist to do their makeup on the day of their wedding.
