5 Healthy Tips To Glow On Your Wedding Day

Healthy Tips For The Bride To Be! www.LipstickandBerries.com  #healthyliving #healthytips #bridetobe #wedding #brideYou want to look and feel your best on your wedding day!  Our four year anniversary last week had me thinking about brides-to-be.  I know how I felt before our wedding;  I wanted to be sure that I looked my best! Pictures last forever!  There is nothing worse than dull skin, dry hair, or a breakout during your wedding week.  Before I got married, here are a few things that I made sure to do…

Number one, remember to take time for yourself in the process! Let the process be as special as the wedding day. Make time for a healthy diet, exercise, and routine skincare. These all will ensure you look gorgeous on your special day!

An essential part of looking your best is to start from the inside out! Fuel your body and soul with healthy, nurturing foods. Diet plays an important role in giving your skin a radiant glow! Your skin reflects what’s going on inside. If you have a healthy diet, your skin will radiate that.

A good way to ensure that your diet is healthy is by “eating the rainbow!”  Make sure every meal is filled with fruits and/or vegetables of different colors. This will ensure you are getting a variety of essential nutrients.

drinkwater

Hydration is essential in keeping the skin clear and radiant! A fun way to add more water to your life is by creating your own Fruit Infused Waters! Also, one of the easiest ways to lose weight is to start drinking more water. Fruit infused waters are natually low in calories and contain no artificial sweeteners (which can cause bloating and water retention) so they are absolutely fabulous if you don’t like the taste of just plain water, plus you can drink as much as you want!

My favorite fruit waters are Strawberry-Basil, Cucumber-Lemon, and Orange Mint! Just simply slice the fruits and herbs, place in the water overnight, and then pour into a glass container or mason jar to take with you during the day!  Check out My Spa Waters for more flavor ideas.

The correct skin care regimen is all about consistency.  An A+ skin care routine can easily be achieved at home without expensive products or too much time.  It is totally up to you how much time and money you want to spend on it all!  As a beauty professional working with clients over the years, a great way to brighten your skin is to do a weekly face mask at home! These do not have to be expensive. I have a wonderful Cucumber Lemon Face Mask that I make at home. It is easy, inexpensive, and effective!

drinkgreens

Clear your mind and detox with a daily Green Cocktail! Greens like Kale, Spinach, Watercress, or Swiss Chard are some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. What a fantastic way to start your day! Don’t be scared, a green drink can be sweet and ultra-satisfying! Refined sugars and fats can create “brain fog.” There are a too many decisions to be made during wedding time for a cloudy mind! Fresh greens and high cruciferous smoothies clear the mind and free your creativity!

– For those new to green smoothies, try my Green Virgin Cocktail! You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how delicious it is!! It’s a perfect balance of sweet and tangy. Baby Spinach has such a mild flavor; all you will taste is fruit! I have added ground flaxseed to this cocktail to keep your body satisfied throughout the morning. Ground Flaxseed is the perfect healthy fat for our bodies because it has the most almost balanced ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 Fatty Acids.

drinktea

Relax.  Breathe.  Take a bridal break at least one time a day! YOU DESERVE IT!  One of the best ways to release tension is with hot tea. Tea actually contains a calming amino acid called L-Theanine. L-Theanine has been shown to dampen the adrenal production of the stress hormone cortisol. Sipping on hot tea also strengthens the soothing levels of alpha waves in the brain. This helps the mind to block out unnecessary chatter and induce a state of wakeful relaxation. Try Chamomile Tea anytime of the day when you need a relaxing moment. Chamomile is a beautiful, light, and floral, caffeine free tea that rarely needs sweetening and actually helps improve digestion. Need some Tea inspiration?  Check out my Tea Tuesday Series.
