When you’re planning your wedding one of your top priorities is ensuring you look your best on the big day. However, with all the stresses and time constraints of planning your wedding, this is not always an easy thing to get right. We’ve got five easy tips to look your best on your wedding day.
5 Tips to Look Your Best on Your Wedding Day
We’ve pulled together five fail-safe tips to help you keep on top of your wedding workout and leave you feeling confident on your big day.
Treat your workouts like an appointment
During the final few weeks leading up to your wedding day, you’re likely to be busier than ever to ensure that everything is in place for the big day. During such a busy time it’s tempting to start skipping workouts and not eating properly in order to free up some extra time, but doing so could have negative consequences.
The answer is to treat your workouts like a formal, fixed appointment, in the same way you would any other wedding-related task or activity. Write your workouts in your diary and set reminders. Approach your workouts with discipline and give them a structure so that you’re not tempted to skip them.
Get your diet right for healthy, glowing skin
Looking your best on your wedding day is not just about maintaining your optimum weight. You’re also going to need to ensure that your skin is as healthy and radiant as it possibly can be. Good skin starts from within so a good diet will help with your weight management and your complexion.
There are many things you can do to achieve great looking skin on your wedding day. For example, include lots of essential fatty acids, such as Omega-6, eat lots of dark green vegetables and keep your vitamin C levels topped up. This helps to produce collagen, which strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin. If you want to be at your glowing best on the big day, you simply have to get your diet and nutrition right.
Make sure you drink enough water
You probably know that it’s important to stay hydrated, but you might not quite realise just how vital it is for you to drink enough water in the lead up to the big day. The benefits really are endless.
Proper hydration will improve your hair, your skin and your nails. It is also said it will help to speed up your metabolism and make you more alert and less lethargic. This is especially important when you have all that planning to do. Aim for eight large glasses of water every day and carry a water bottle around with you to help you stay well hydrated at all times.
Plan and prepare your meals ahead of time
During the final stages of your engagement when your to-do list seems never-ending, it can become increasingly difficult to maintain a healthy diet. Combat this by planning and preparing meals in advance, so you always have healthy and nutritious meal options available to you. This eradicates the temptation to spontaneously grab unhealthy fast-food options when hunger strikes.
The guidelines outlined above can certainly help you on your way to a healthier you. We have more great articles on wedding diets and workout regimes below.
