Every bride wants to look and feel amazing on her wedding day. Your wedding photos will provide a lasting legacy of your wedding day for the rest of your married life so why wouldn’t you want to look your absolute best for them? When you get engaged it’s a good idea to start planning and preparing your mind and body for your big day.
- Exercise: We all know that we should exercise more often but it really is the miracle solution to a variety of problems. Cardio exercise is great for burning unwanted fat and improving the function of your heart and lungs. Resistance exercises can help to tone and shape your muscles. A combination of cardio and resistance exercises will help to improve your overall fitness and stamina, and release endorphins, all of which can help you to physically and mentally prepare for the stresses and demands of your big day!
- Eat well: Eating a healthy diet has so many great benefits, and when combined with exercise it really is a wonder drug! As soon as you begin planning your wedding start upping your intake of fruit and vegetables in order to keep yourself healthy from the inside. When you’re eating a balanced diet full of fruit, vegetables, lean protein and wholemeal carbohydrates, washed down with plenty of water, your skin will glow, your hair will shine and your nails will grow strong.
- Relax: Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful so it’s important that you make time for regular relaxation. Take a nice long bath, read a good book, meet with friends for coffee; however you choose to relax, make sure you do it often and allow yourself time to switch off from wedding stuff.
- Take care of your skin: If you’re doing all of the above then you should start to notice improvements in your skin, but it’s always a good idea to keep up a good skin-care routine. Cleanse and moisturise your face with suitable products, and ensure that you regularly exfoliate your face and body to remove dull skin cells and allow yourself to glow.
