We all know that the pre-wedding beauty prep can be comprehensive, and we are lucky to be part of many bride to be's beauty regime in the lead up to the big day. Here are a few effective tips from our beauty experts on what you can do to prepare for the big day.

1. Hydration
The most important beauty tip of all - aim for 2-3 litres of water/day in the lead up to the big day. The extra water will not only help to nourish the cells, flush away toxins, and add exra glow - it will also help the body operate better under the extra stress.

2. Hand and feet soaking in a luxurious moisturiser
With the hands being a centrepoint of the day - and you feeling beautiful being an essential part - treating your hands (and feet) to some extra care means your nails, and the ring, will stand out and pop on the big day. Soak your hands in a luxurious moisturiser in the evenings - it is also a great way to relax and unwind during the planning and lead up.

3. Moisture rich body oil - 3 x day
Jojoba and Avocado oil are great options for luscious, smooth and hydrated skin. They help the surface layers of the skin to become naturally hydrated in a clean way and with 3 x day application, your skin will be lovely and soft for the big day (and the honeymoon!).

4. Meditate
Yes - this is a beauty tip! Regular meditation practice in the lead up to the big day will help not only calm your nerves, but relax your body and this will show in your body language, reactions and expressions. Meditation will help your nervous system repair faster and will help your body stay healthy and strong for the big day.

5. Weekly facials
One of our favourite self care rituals for a bride to be is a facial to enhance hydration, repair, and natural glow. Regular facials will help to maintain the integrity of the skin and it will also be helpful having a regular facial expert to ask any beauty-related questions to support the process. Some of our favourite bridal facials include Collagen Rehab, Vitamin C Facial, Dr Babor Luxury Facial, Radiance Rescue and Vitamineral Deep Detox.
