I have six months until my big day, but I struggle with dry skin on my face which makes makeup stick to it. Did anyone start a skincare routine before the wedding and if so, how far in advance and any tips?

Hi moisturize daily and use an over night moisturizer failing that visit the Doctor or your local chemist :)

If you are going to start a new skincare regime do it as soon as possible. Definitely don't change any less than three months before the wedding to ensure your skin is good.

Start now! I'd use a good serum under your moisturizer twice a day. Always use a good facial exfoliator and cleanser first.

I would say use a gentle exfoliator, cleanser and toner that are specifically for dry skin. The body shops Vitamin E range is brilliant for this. They have face serums and night creams etc as well. Hydrating face masks are really good too - there are few really good sheet masks out there for dry skin. And make sure you are using a hydrating foundation (avoid matt finishes if possible). I have the same issue and have spent quite a lot of time trying to find the right skincare for me :)

A good skincare routine is key and making sure drinking plenty of water.

I also highly recommend a facial or two. Pick a good eye cream, a daytime moisturiser with sun protection and a really moisturising night cream.

Moisturise and use primer before make up?

Coconut oil is good as a moisturiser for dry skin xx

Try InnisFree - I've never found a skincare product that really worked for me (I've got dry skin too) until someone gifted me an InnisFree set. They're South Korean tea tree based, all natural and they are amazing!

Go into the body shop and they will be your skin savers! I swear by their products and haven’t had a bad breakout of spots or dry skin since x

I’d recommend a hydro facial every 6-8weeks. It’s a combination of hydrating the skin and helping even out the tone and condition of the skin. I’ve started doing it in prep for my wedding and I notice a massive difference in my skin and I’ve only had 2 so far x

Clinique moisture surge, really good for sensitive and dry skin, it’s more like a light gel than cream, works well x

Maybe book in for a microdermabrasion treatment then pick up a good skincare regime and religiously stick to it. I've found the body shops ranges are very good and affordable. I've had better results from body shop than from the likes of Elemis/clinique etc x

Try hyaluronic acid (not sure of spelling) from The Ordinary. I have had dry skin and eczema on my face since I was a kid, especially on the bridge of my nose and have tried every moisturiser going. I switched to using this day and night after a recommendation from a friend and within a week it is gone, I’m absolutely thrilled! Even better that it was only about £4 for the bottle, when I was previously using Murad which was ok but £60!!

I struggle with dry skin on my face and found the perfect remedy. Mix two table spoons of oats with two table spoons of lemon juice and one of honey. Mix it into a paste and apply onto your face. Leave it for 5mins or so and wash it off in circular motions... sounds really random but it works a treat. Use a sensitive skin moisturiser once you’ve completed the process ️xx

Start now. Are you having a makeup artist if so speak to the fast. My daughters mua told her what to use and when. She looked stunning on her day. Her wedding was end of December.

Gentley massage face with exfoliating gloves when washing your face (couple of £££ from Superdrug) then light moisurising, works well for me 👍🏻
