It’s never too early to start your wedding skincare prep. “Allow a minimum of three months’ lead time for regular facials, having a treatment every four weeks,” advises Sarah Chapman, a Vogue favourite and Meghan Markle’s go-to facialist. Chapman’s Skinesis Bespoke Facial offers treatment based on your own specific needs. Alternatively, D.Thomas Clinic offers brilliant facials for those suffering from blemish-prone skin, whilst regular facials at Vaishaly are great for brightening complexions. And then there’s Mesolift. A treatment invented by Dr Maurice Dray, it’s a medi-cocktail of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants custom-made according to your skin’s needs, injected into the skin via a mesogun (skin is numbed first, you don’t feel a thing). What ensues is skin so radiant that people will be complimenting you on how “well” you look all day. The ideal timeline is to have one per month, three months in advance of the big day in addition to your normal routine.
If you prefer a DIY approach, facialist Teresa Tarmey’s brilliant at-home microneedling kit offers a 12-week skincare programme with results you can really see. The dermaroller injects product directly into the skin, whilst a 24k gold massage tool boosts circulation and allows Tarmey’s peptide treatment to work its magic. LN and JD
