We at Laponie adore weddings and multifunctional, versatile skincare products, so what’s better than combining these two! Presenting: our best tips for sensitive and problem skinned brides (and grooms) on their big day. Keep reading for our fave easy beauty tips!
Prep wedding skin
Exfoliation: Gently exfoliate your face and give it glow – apply a generous layer of our Gel Cleanser to clean skin, allow it to work its magic for 10 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. The combination of xylitol sugar and our plant-derived solubilisers in the product makes for gentle exfoliation. Your skin will feel soft and moisturised!
DIY face mask: Pamper your face and get glowing with a DIY face mask. We’ve picked out favourites, from cleansing and energising to hydrating and calming, all sensitive and problem skin approved, using our Gel Cleanser as a mask base. Go check out our blog, and get masking!
Hydration: Proper hydration is a key step in any skincare routine. You can use our Face Cream to moisturise and care for your face and under eye area. Alternatively, you can use favourite combination, our Balancing Essence and Face Oil, for a no-cream routine.
Sunburnt? Don’t you worry! Our Essence doubles as an excellent, natural and vegan after-sun product. Just spray some on the burnt area to calm it down! Plus, it’s light enough to use on your scalp.
Lipcare: Nourish and protect your lips with our All-Around Balm! It's a rich product, but we've formulated it with a semi-matte finish, so it won't travel.
Prep your skin: For smooth and long-lasting makeup,proper moisturisation is key. Apply our Face Cream to your face and under eye area. If you need a soothing boost, mix in a drop of our Calming Serum, and if you feel like you need to control extra oil, mix in a bit of our Clarifying Serum. For extra nourishment, mix in a drop of our Face Oil.
Get the base right: Create a good base for your makeup by applying a small amount of our Face Cream as a primer and letting it absorb. The colloidal oatmeal and poppy seed oil in our cream create a ’blurring’ effect on the skin, making your face look more even.
Glowing cheeks: Pat in a small amount of our All-Around Balm on top of your blusher to achieve a beautifully natural glow to your cheeks. If you use a mineral blusher, you can try mixing a small amount of our balm with the blusher to make a wonderful and creamy lip- and cheek blusher fit for sensitive and problem skin.
Brow wax: Our balm is also fit for styling the brows. Just apply the balm to a brush and style away!
Beard wax: The balm works as a gentle alternative to a beard wax/balm. Bonus: It’ll also soothe itchy beards.
Even out the skin after applying makeup: Does your makeup look dry or cake-y? Our Face Cream can also be used on top of makeup to diminish dry and rough patches. Just carefully apply a little bit and let absorb.
Setting makeup: To finish off, lightly spray our Essence on top and let it dry to set your makeup.
Get your wedding hands ready
Express-mani: Soak your hands in warm water for a couple of minutes to soften them up. Dry your hands and generously apply our All-Around Balm to your cuticles, while gently pushing them back. Apply nail polish of your choice if desired.
After shaving/hair removal: Spray on our Balancing Essence to calm down irritated skin. The ectoin we use in the Essence is a true miracle-worker on ingrown hair.
Nourish and protect the skin: Our Face Oil and All-Around Balm are fit to be used for the whole body. Apply a thin layer of either to dry and rough areas, cuticles or any other part that could use a little extra TLC.
Bacne, i.e. back acne: Wash your back with the Gel Cleanser and treat irritation with our Essence - spray on clean skin and let dry.
Wedding hair - and scalp
Protect the skin while dying your hair: Use our All-Around Balm as a protective, non-comedogenic layer for your skin when dying your hair or brows.
Hair oil: Show some love to the dry and rough ends of your hair by applying a little bit of our Face Oil.
Caring for your scalp: Spray our Essence to your scalp to alleviate itching, dryness, dandruff and scalp acne.
Beard oil: Our Face Oil is an excellent alternative to a beard oil!
Keep it fresh at the party
A quick pick-me-up for the skin during the celebration: Pack our sprayable Essence in your purse and spritz away whenever needed to freshen up your face. Your skin looks re-freshed and your makeup stays put.
After the celebration
Cleansing skin: Massage our Oil Cleanser to the face to remove all makeup. Follow up with either our Milk Cleanser or Gel Cleanser.
Calming and soothing night mask: Pamper your face with a soothing night mask. Mix some of our All-Around Balm and Essence together and apply to your face. Leave the mask on overnight and wake up to nourished, soft and soothed skin. This mask does wonders for dry hands too!
