It all stems from knowing that at the end of the day, you’ll be married to your better half. (Okay.. and maybe with a little help from your pre-wedding skincare regimen!) The photos captured during your wedding will be images you look back on for the rest of your life. When you’re preparing for the big-day, you want to look and feel your very best. It’s time to kick your skin care into high gear!

BRIDES SHOULD BEGIN THEIR PRE-WEDDING SKIN CARE BOOTCAMP 5-6 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY

This means dermatologist appoints, investing in the right products, and beginning a skin care routine that you can follow. I’m talking scrubs, peels, moisturizing and completely avoiding falling asleep with old makeup on (even if you binge watched 11 episodes of Ozark on Netflix and your dog is already snoring away in your lap and the bathroom is just like really far away)

As a fellow bride-to-be, I’m in the same boat. I know I’ll be hiring a makeup artist for my wedding. I will never be able to consider myself a beauty blogger and I couldn’t tell you the difference between concealer and foundation. I once contoured my face so poorly it prompted a stranger to ask if I was a victim of domestic violence – yikes. I’m NOT your go-to beauty counselor, but I am like many brides out there: real. If you’re like me, and you’re seeking the perfect line of low-maintenance, cost-efficient skin care, let me introduce you to the holy grail:

JUNE JACOBS SPA COLLECTION

SkinCare2

June Jacobs was a relatively unfamiliar brand, so I did my research and found out:

-June Jacobs Spa is all about natural anti-aging

-No synthetic dyes, fragrances or preservatives are used

-June Jacobs is like a real life mermaid

She began fusing her products with inspiration from local ingredients her family used growing up on the coast of the Caspian sea. Her favorites include tea leaves, pomegranate, goji berry and grape seeds – all antioxidant filled superfoods! I reviewed

the summer essentials kit

RespectKit

{RAPID REPAIR HEALING CREAM}

{LIP RENEWAL SPF50}

{PROTECTIVE MOISTURIZER SPF30}

After a week of use, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I am obsessed with lotion and Vaseline – every bathroom in my home is littered with tall dispensers of intensive care moisturizer. But that’s the issue – I need so many because my skin never stays quenched long enough! With working in an office, working out and constantly walking/picking up after/grooming my dogs – I’m always washing my hands (your mom would be so proud) But constant soap is super drying – so after a few days of using June Jacobs Rapid Repair Healing Cream, I was impressed that I wasn’t craving a glob a lotion every hour. When trying on wedding dresses, you’re analyzing every piece of skin that will be showing on your wedding day. Post-twirling at my fitting, I realized how scaly my elbows were. One week of JJ Rapid Repair and they’re less rhinoceros more baby dolphin! Any dry areas of your skin will be smooth and supple within one short week. Imagine what it could do months before the big day? An added bonus: The Summer Essentials Kit comes with travel size products, so toting it around (in an adorable BAGGU bag) was clutch.

Just like my safety blanket of lotion around the house, I have tubes of lip balm in every crevice. A chapstick in my car cupholder, an EOS egg in the bathroom, a Burt’s Bees stick in every purse, a mini tub of Vaseline lip care on my nightstand – I can’t go without! No matter the season, my lips are always peeling & dry.

Did you hear something? Anyways – I was a little hesitant to get my hopes up, but the lip renewal is so smooth I can’t even deal. The texture of the balm is a mix between a quenching petroleum jelly & a sleek Shea butter. The Jojoba seed oil helps renew the barrier of your lips that keeps the moisture in. This tube is small but mighty! By far my favorite product and preferred lip care.

One issue that brides often fret over is priming their skin for the big day. Oily, dry, discolored, porous – you name it, a bride is currently cursing it. You can cover it with make up or airbrush away the imperfections, but everyone seeks a clean, healthy face that they can feel comfortable with even when the bronzer fades. My parents blessed us with a LOT – including almost perfect skin (sorry, not sorry) I feel incredibly lucky to have grown without the embarrassing acne, grueling blackheads and every other little issue that makes high school so unbearable.

That being said, I still try to take good care of it; In the summer, I notice a little more dryness since I’m a sun goddess & spend 99% of my weekends laying out on a lounge chair *shrugs, with a tanmoisturizers kind of freak me out because they always leave an oily substance (that’s probably the idea) but I can’t get down with it.

I had such quick results with the rapid repair cream and lip renewal that I said “frick it” and applied the Protective Moisturizer (with added SPF) for a week. I was so excited to wake up refreshed, without the oily film covering my t-zone! A co-worker even complimented my “glow” – what every bride-to-be strives for.

Each product was lightweight, easy to apply and totally low maintenance. One week and I was hooked.

JUNE JACOBS SUMMER ESSENTIALS KIT IS A HONEYMOON MUST HAVE.

Do not go to Barbados without packing the perfect protection. Moisturizing your skin will help preserve that newlywed tan! JJ sells all products separately, so you can stick a lip renewal tube into your bridesmaids’ gifts, and you can even make sure your future hubby looks his best with their men’s kit.

Ready to look your best on your big day? Start now!
