Brides typically take a few hours before the ceremony to do their hair and makeup, but there are also a lot of regular beauty routines that you can implement in the months before the wedding to get ready for your big day. Taking the time to follow a beauty routine in advance will ensure you look great for all your wedding photos.

Here are a few beauty routines that will get you over-the-top gorgeous in your wedding gown.

Whiten Your Teeth

You’re going to be doing a lot of smiling. To prepare for all those smiles (and all the photographs of those smiles), try a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips at home to get those pearly whites even whiter. If you want, you could also schedule a professional whitening session with your dentist to get your teeth movie-star white before your wedding day.

Exfoliate Your Lips

When lips get dry, they have a tendency to get flaky, which can make it difficult to put on any kind of lip product. In addition to drinking a lot of water (the surest way to get smooth lips), try exfoliating your lips with a special scrub to get your lips extra soft and kissable. You’ll also be doing a lot of kissing at your wedding.

Use a Sugar Scrub on Your Skin

On your wedding day, you’ll be hugging family members, dancing with your new spouse, and linking arms with friends that you haven’t seen in a long time—so you’ll definitely want your skin to be extra soft. Use a sugar scrub in the shower at least two or three times a week to get rid of dead skin layers and stimulate skin cells to make them glow.

Moisturize Regularly

Your mother always told you to put lotion on right after you get out of the shower, but you may have ignored her advice—until now. Putting on lotion is one of the best ways to get your skin glowing and looking soft and youthful. Try to moisturize right after you get out of the shower and before you go to bed at night.

Eat Healthy and Exercise

One of the best ways to look and feel great is to keep up with a healthy routine of exercising and eating well. A lot of brides feel pressure to get fit before their wedding. There’s certainly nothing wrong with having a goal in mind to keep you committed to a healthy lifestyle. Be sure not to go too crazy with fad diets or unsafe exercise practices. Exercise moderately on a regular basis and try to increase your intakes of fruits, vegetables, and healthy meats, and you’ll be doing just fine with your diet.
