Hey there Believers!
Well we are well and truly in to the final countdown before the big day, so all I can do now, is make sure I am physically as prepared as possible.
As many of you will know, once the obvious checklist is done, i.e venue, caterers, music, flowers, dress etc, the most important on-going process is that of yourself! Investing in high quality fitness and beauty regimes to ensure your skin and body are at their most toned and radiant for the biggest day of your life.
So I would love to share with you my most valuable wedding prep secrets…
Step one: On top of my monthly facials, I have been using Radical Skincare products, and have to say, I am THRILLED with the results!
Once a week I use the ‘Radical Skincare instant revitalising mask’ which is an easy to apply mask that soothes and gives instant radiance whilst providing hydration, vitamins and energy to your skin.
Working beside this I use the ‘Radical Eye Revive Creme’: a four in one treatment proven to hydrate, reduce puffiness, decrease coloration and dark circles and diminish the appearance of wrinkle depth in as little as four weeks, leaving my eyes refreshed and youthful.
Plus, I also use the ‘Radical Peptide Infused Anti-oxident Serum’: an exceptional anti-wrinkle serum that protects, repairs and firms by shielding against the elements which age our skin. Ingredients have been shown to support natural collagen and elasticity in weeks, accompanied by it’s true-to-nature berry bronze hue creating a healthy glow. Precisely what I want on my wedding day.

Step 2: A few must haves to compliment and enhance the above…
– Cleanser: Here, I have been using Lancome Gelatee Confort – a gentle cleansing milk and make-up remover. It’s specially formulated for dry skin, enriched with honey, almond extract, cereals, yeast and milk proteins. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, moisturised, supple and smooth. Love this.
– Next up is ‘Clarisonic’ – an advanced cleansing system for exfoliation and complete removal of dirt and makeup from your day. It’s amazing.
– And last but not least is ‘Eradikate’ by Kate Somerville – My FAVORITE spot treatment for blemishes. This product calms flare-ups and helps prevent future breakouts whilst reducing redness. Incredible.
Step 3: The Workout!
Aside from Jiu-jitsu 3-4 times a week, I have been taking Cardio Barre 3 days a week and love what this does for me. It’s a high energy, no impact class combining barre work and light weights whilst always burning fat with continuous motion. Core ideals are toning and resistance exercises for every major body area, so as well as being great cardio, it strengthens and lengthens your body as you exercise. I sweat like crazy but I feel like my body has been stretched and tightened throughout the workout. It’s my go-to for feeling elegant and beautiful in my wedding dress.
Step 4: Diet!
This last step is so, so important in aiding the first 3 steps. For this, I’ll simply say plenty of fruit and plenty of vegetables! Rener and I juice 5 days a week and we can certainly see and feel the benefits. I also love a nutritious bowl of only fresh, acai fruits as well as vegan protein powder after a workout.
Since the New Year I have actually been gluten, dairy and coffee free to ensure I avoid any possible sensitivities or intolerances my body may have to these food groups and stimulants. The results are brilliant! My skin is visibly clearer and I no longer experience indigestion and bloating. I like it so much, I will be adopting this as more than merely a ‘wedding prep’ diet, but as my new, dietary lifestyle!
So that’s it! In four, fun, easy steps, I’m feeling and looking at my best before I say my vows! I hope this has been informative and helpful but more than anything, I hope it’s inspired all my believers to take good care of your health and beauty.
Thank you for reading!
All my love,
