Clogged pores are one of the leading causes of adult acne. Fortunately, a facial treatment can help remove bacteria and dirt from pores in time for your wedding. While weddings are happy occasions, they also come with stress. If your stress is starting to show in your complexion, it may be time to schedule an appointment at your local facial spa.

The best facial for your wedding is timed a week or two in advance. It’s not uncommon after a facial to experience dry or red skin, which is why you want to give your skin enough time to recover for your wedding. Once the temporary side effects go away, you will be left with a glowing complexion that will shine through in your wedding photos. Acne facials exfoliate, tone, and moisturize your skin.

Sugar Scrub

Like the name suggests, a sugar scrub is a sugar mixture that gently scrubs dead skin cells from your body to reveal softer more radiant skin. Many of our guests with sensitive skin prefer sugar scrubs because they are gentler than salt scrubs. A spa will have their own special sugar scrub mixture that contains sugar, oil, and an essential oil like lavender.

A body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin so you can look your best on your wedding day. Many spa packages include a sugar body scrub so you can leave feeling refreshed and energized.

Pro Tip: Schedule your sugar scrub appointment before getting a spray tan so the natural sun-kissed look doesn’t rub off.

Mud Wrap

After an exfoliating body scrub, we recommend a mud wrap for your skin. Your skin is better able to absorb the helpful ingredients in the mud wrap once dead skin cells are removed. Body wraps also remove dead skin cells, not to mention toxins, impurities, and pollutants.

After the mud is applied to your body, you will be wrapped in plastic for about 20 minutes. One of our staff will then cover you with a blanket to help you stay warm and comfortable while your skin rejuvenates. Body wraps also help improve circulation for better well-being.

Swedish Massage

Whether you wish to schedule a couple’s massage or a fun spa day with friends, you can count on our ability to help you feel relaxed. After months of stressful wedding planning, it’s important to remember why you’re getting married in the first place and to enjoy the journey.

Be sure to let your masseuse know your trouble areas so you can leave our massage spa feeling relaxed. Swedish massage uses a variety of methods to work out the knots, which include kneading, rolling, vibration, percussive, and tapping movements.
