Exfoliate face 2X per week in the shower
Use daily moisturizer with SPF under your makeup
Use a more emollient cream at night
Apply eye cream every night
Book a facial – either soothing or rejuvenating
If you plan on a spray tan on your wedding day – find the perfect person who will make you the perfect color and make sure they are available for the week leading up to your wedding
Start grooming those brows to perfection (tweezing, waxing, threading) make sure your favorite brow expert is available for the week leading up to your wedding
