A London glamour photographer is always going to make you look great – and it feels great to enter the studio knowing you are looking your best. So what sort of pre-shoot skin routine should you adopt to ensure you are on top form for your big day? Below, I have listed a few easy-to-follow tips that will get you there, and give your creative team the best possible head start.
Blemishes in the studio are no big deal. Your team can always make them disappear with expert make-up, lighting or post production. To ensure healthy-looking skin, the three golden rules are a healthy diet, plenty of hydration, and consistent cleansing and moisturising.
You are what you eat
Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables helps regulate the skin’s pH balance, and reducing dairy intake can also often help to diminish any persistent skin blotchiness. Similarly, if you know you have an intolerance to certain food items, it is simple common sense to reduce your intake of these in the days leading up to a shoot.
Water, water everywhere
Hydration is also key to great-looking skin. By drinking two litres of water a day, you are effectively flushing excess toxins from the skin, and encouraging a healthy, natural glow. A note of caution however, drinking too much water just prior to a shoot can lead to bloating, so reduce your intake in the hours leading up to the shoot.
A good daily cleansing and moisturising routine is essential for really healthy-looking skin. However tempting after a stressful day, never head to bed without first removing your makeup, and moisturising. Your face and body will always thank you.
Heading into a glamour photography studio in London with great-looking skin allows you to feel relaxed and confident. With nothing to hide, you can project your true self, and maybe surprise a few people along the way.
