The Radiance Boosting Facial to Add to Your Wedding Prep

Planning a wedding is a stressful time and the added running around, late nights stuck in a Pinterest hole and hours spent scouting venues and tasting menus can wreak havoc on your skin.

All brides strive for beautifully glowing skin on their wedding day but unfortunately, the added stress means your skin is inclined to do anything but glow. That’s why you need a bit of a helping hand.

A strategic skincare routine and the right treatments can do a world of wonder on your complexion but with so many options being marketed toward stressed and vulnerable brides, how do you know what really works?

I can safely say from personal experience that an infusion of vitamin C is a must. The oxidant and environmental aggressor fighting capabilities of vitamin C leave your skin tone clearer and your complexion brighter. Your wedding day makeup will go on smoother and your natural glow will shine through. So, where should you be getting this added vitamin C from?

The Radiance C Brightening Facial Treatment at Ella Bache is a must for any bride-to-be. The multi-step facial incorporates vitamin C every step of the way with serums, mists and masks all injecting your skin with a little vitamin lovin’. It’s affordable and suitable for just about any skin type as it’s powerful yet gentle.

The treatment is equally as relaxing for your body and mind as it is nourishing for your skin. After being comfortably wrapped up in a blanket in a dimly lit and peaceful treatment room, your beauty therapist will give you an in-depth analysis of your skin’s health, talking through your current routine and suggesting any changes you could consider making.

Then, the treatment starts with a relaxing cleanse and facial massage and feels like it never ends (in the best way possible). Prepare to feel sleepy as your neck, shoulders, arms and hands are massaged while powerful antioxidant packed masks work their magic on your skin.

A gentle enzyme exfoliant is used mid treatment to slough off your top layer of dead skin cells to allow the vitamin C to penetrate even further and brighten your skin. A gentle stream of steam is blown onto your face to open your pores and again, give the products full access to get deep down into your pores. Hyaluronic acid is used in abundance to pump your skin full of moisture and probably the most exciting part of the experience is the thick, gel like mask that’s applied to your face, neck and décolletage and left to harden before being peeled off in one go.

Afterwards, your skin will feel plump, hydrated, smooth and you’ll be glowing like nothing else (I certainly was). The best thing about the treatment is that there’s absolutely no down-time. It’s perfect for getting the morning of a big event to help your makeup sit flawlessly on your skin or in more a regimented series of treatments to really brighten your skin and even out your skin tone long term. For the committed bride, these Vitamin C treatments are recommended every 6 weeks in the lead up to your big day

You’ll leave the salon not only looking and feeling amazing, but also armed with some extra skincare know-how. Your beauty therapist will give you a few samples that suit your individual skin needs and a regimen to follow at home to boost the success of your in-clinic treatment.
