If you are a bride to be or simply need to get your skin in order for a big day, I have been provided with a detailed guide describing which Liz Earle products to use and when which might just be handy for you. I could have done with it before my big day and perhaps I may not have ended up sporting Mount Vesuvius on my chin…. anyway, please have a read, and if it’s not applicable to you, skip to the bottom paragraph and read that please!

One month to go
Continue to thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise every day and start using Gentle Face Exfoliator 2-3 times a week.
Boost your skin and circulation by dry body brushing with a natural bristle brush once a day before you shower. Start at your feet and work upwards in long, firm strokes towards your heart. Follow with Energising Body Scrub 3 times a week, paying attention to elbows, heels, knees and ankles.
As the big day approaches, stress levels may be rising so balance any skin changes with a weekly mask. Need help choosing? Check out Jo’s blog on finding the right mask for you or give our team of expertly trained skincare advisors  a call on 01983 813913.
At night, start using a facial oil, such as Superskin Concentrate, to balance and calm stressed skin. Warm a small amount in your hands, then take a few moments to inhale the aromatic essential oils which calm the senses and can aid restful sleep. Then massage over your face, neck and chest area with light sweeping movements.
Don’t forget your hands and feet. Start applying Foot Repair Moisturiser and Hand Repair every night before bed then massage Superbalm into your nails and cuticles.

Two weeks to go
Help your eyes to sparkle by applying an eye compress in the morning to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
Care for your eye area and soften fine lines with Daily Eye Repair in the morning and Superskin Eye & Lip Treatment at night.
Go for a sauna or steam to cleanse your body and de-stress.
For fuzz-free skin on the big day, book a bikini, leg and underarm wax. Soothe your skin afterwards with Instant Boost Skin Tonic – the organic aloe vera helps to keep skin ultra-hydrated and calmed.

3 days to go
Give yourself a little ‘me-time’ by relaxing in a warm bath. If you have sensitive or dehydrated skin, use Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask.
Go for a professional file and varnish for your hands and feet, then top up with Hand Repair and Foot Repair Moisturiser daily.
If you are planning to have a fake tan, prepare skin by buffing away dead skin cells with Energising Body Scrub and Gentle Face Exfoliator for the face.  Lavish your skin with a body cream the day before your tan application to ensure even coverage.

The day before
Treat any last-minute blemishes using Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser in the morning.
Today is all about soothing your nerves so why not treat yourself to a professional massage?  Also, try to avoid bread, pasta and salt as they can cause bloating and avoid alcohol completely if you want to look and feel your best.

The night before
Go to bed early and sleep with a few pillows under your knees – this will help reduce puffy ankles in the morning.
Massage a few drops of Superskin Concentrate over face, neck and the backs of hands.  Have a warm bath and turn off your mobile.
Eat a light meal such as a salad and soup and do not eat after 7pm – you will get a better night’s sleep.

The big day
Thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise. Pop on a brightening Treatment Mask and an eye compress.
Have a warm shower with, then apply some Hand Repair to your hands and Superbalm to your cuticles, while you take 5 minutes to relax and take some deep breaths.
As you add your finishing touches, spritz your hair and behind your ears with your favourite perfume. Keep your lipstick, some tissues, and a travel size Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer to soothe your skin and senses throughout the day.

I think that’s a fantastic checklist and I could have benefitted from it hugely before my big day. However I do owe Liz Earle a huge thank you. Why? Because they sent a huge box of stuff, every item mentioned above, to my Sister who as you all know by now is getting married in a few weeks. I must also add that I told Liz Earle that I wouldn’t be blogging about it and would understand if they’d rather not send the box. They insisted and my sister was delighted. As it happened, I felt I simply must do a post about it, just to say thank you on behalf of myself and my Sister. It was incredibly thoughtful.  Thank you.

PS: The box in the image above is not what was received I don’t think, just how I have imagined it to look (I haven’t seen it!)

    Even though I am not a huge fan of LE products, I would be delighted to receive one of the boxes, even if only to look at! I do think the checklist is excellent. Thankyou for the post. Jan x
