While brides-to-be often focus on their gown, hair and makeup before their upcoming nuptials, few may take time to think about an extremely important feature – their hands! Women who are about to say ‘I do’ may want to treat themselves to a manicure – as soon as rings are exchanged, guests will be glancing at your hands all night.
To keep your skin soft, apply a rich hand cream each day, in the weeks leading up to the ceremony. Ladies who desire a more advanced moisturizing treatment can use special gloves designed to provide intensive hydration. Borghese Spa Mani Moisture Restoring Gloves feature a blend of oils and vitamins to help rehydrate and rejuvenate skin.
When selecting a nail polish, opt for a light hue. “Under no circumstances should you have color on your hands,” Ji Baek, owner of New York City’s Rescue Beauty Lounge spas, told Allure. Lippmann Collection offers a great set of sheer, light nail lacquers, aptly named The Princess Bride Collection.
However, ladies who love candy-colored nail polish can opt for a bright pedicure. “If you want to show your wild side, put color on your toenails,” Baek suggested, “but not too bright there, either – a nice dark pink or classic red.”
