Beautiful Asian bride with hand on face at the beach

Numerous polls, surveys, and magazines have deemed Philippine beaches as some of the best in the world. And if you’ve ever been to Boracay, El Nido, or Caramoan, you would know: it’s as if the shorelines were made for a beach wedding. Luckily for couples, the tropical climate makes beachside nuptials possible nearly all year round. With the backdrop photo-ready, you as the bride should be, too. Here are some tips for nailing that striking sun-kissed glow on your big day. 

Prep Way in Advance

Planning a wedding is a pressure cooker, especially in these uncertain times. Adding a beach element to the mix just makes it a tad more of a challenge. Start a dedicated wedding skincare routine at least three months before the wedding date. Be diligent with cleansing and toning, and use products with niacinamide and glutathione to coax out your skin’s natural brightness. Also, try to use exfoliating products and sheet masks at least once a week.

Let Your Hair Down

Flowing soft waves will have you feeling gorgeous on your big day

Long, loose waves are always a big hit for beach brides. Make sure your hair is primed for that luscious, flowing look. Before you get the mousse and curling iron, though, start with a good base. Tame frizz and other hair woes with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo and Conditioner. Formulated with KERA10 Protein Complex, this combo penetrates hair 10 layers deep, giving you salon benefits in the comfort of your shower.

After rinsing off the shampoo, follow it up with the conditioner. Apply it from mid-length to the ends and leave it on for two to three minutes before washing it out. This keratin-infused pair strengthens your hair before styling and protects your ’do from the wild effects of possible beachside humidity.

Use Double-Duty Skincare Products

It’s important not to overdo skin care and makeup on the day of your wedding. Thick layers of product in hot weather? It’s not the best combination. To alleviate the situation, use multitaskers like POND’S Healthy Hydration Watermelon Hydrating Jelly Moisturizer. It hydrates the skin and gives you an instant glass-like complexion. Not only does this oil-free gel instantly moisturize the skin, it also reduces the appearance of pores, making it a great makeup primer.

Protect Your Entire Body

Choose a lotion that’s lightweight and non-sticky, so you’ll feel relaxed throughout the ceremony.

People always forget that skin is more than the face. If you’re rocking your wedding in a backless number or a cute mini, don’t neglect to protect—and show off your body, too. Make sure every inch of your skin is gorgeously dewy. 

Dazzle from head to toe with Vaseline Healthy Bright Fresh & Bright Cooling UV Niacinamide Body Lotion. Formulated with Vaseline Jelly, this lightweight lotion has 10X active niacinamide to make your skin thrice as bright. Its triple sunscreen protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays, while menthol keeps you feeling fresh even when you’re under the scorching sun. 

Smile With Confidence

Whether you’re having a beach blowout or an intimate wedding in city hall, having your head-turning smile camera-ready is a given. To make sure your pearly whites are looking their best for the big day, remember to use closeup Natural Smile Toothpaste at least two weeks prior. It boasts a natural solution of lemon essence and sea salt to whiten your teeth and keep your breath fresh. Nothing will make you more like a radiant bride than a self-possessed smile. 

Wedding nerves are perfectly natural, but you can check bridal glow off your list thanks to these products. Your beach wedding is going to look stunning, and so are you.
