‘One of the most important aspects of bridal beauty is the health of your skin – so in order to truly enjoy the big day, solving any problems well in advance is crucial so that there is no anxiety tainting the run-up,’ comments Dr Sam Bunting. ‘If someone is prone to breakouts, I’d recommend planning to put in place a great skincare routine to control any temperament flare-ups, as the stress of wedding planning can in itself provoke blemishes. See a dermatologist for advice as soon as the ring is on your finger if this is on your mind. I have looked after countless brides-to-be over the years, and solving this issue early creates so much more confidence and joy during the wedding planning period,’ she advises.

Sam goes on to say, ‘If you’re thinking of doing anything new, like trying Botox or fillers, again plan this early as you’ll want a test run before getting treatment for the big day to ensure you like the results. Do plenty of research and be conservative if this is your first foray into injectables – you want to look like the best version of yourself.


‘Three months to go…Aim to maximise your skin’s radiance for your photos. If you’re not using a retinoid, you’re missing a trick – this is the single most powerful step to creating a camera-ready glow. I love the combination of our award-winning Flawless Nightly Serum and Flawless Brightly Serum to improve texture, pores and luminosity.

‘The night before the wedding, you’ll want to ensure your skin is hydrated to the max, so make-up stays in place and doesn’t find fine lines – try applying a juicy layer of Dr Sam’s Flawless Revival Mask as an overnight sleep mask to deliver ultimate dewiness.

‘Summer weddings often mean time outdoors so make sure you stay protected and glowy with a primer, like sunscreen, our Flawless Gossamer SPF50 is perfect. 

‘The right wedding skincare routine doesn’t have to break the bank as long as you focus on the right active ingredients, in the right concentration in the right combination. Take our Routine Finder to find a winning formula in just four steps.
