Not familiar?  Dry brushing is a technique that exfoliates and stimulates circulation and improves the appearance of your skin, making it softer and more supple. Check Goop for step-by-step instructions.

MASSAGE:

Tues. Thurs.

A massage or two will not only help you manage the stress of the week, it will also make you feel good and make your skin more supple. It is especially important for those strapless gowns, ladies!

GET A HAIRCUT/COLOR

Tues.

Good hair is essential for any big night. Making sure your cut and color is fresh a few days before the event gives your hair time to settle into the new cut. Also, if you are getting your hair done for the big day, it is a good idea to make sure that your appointment is locked in and correct.

BOOK MAKEUP

Tues.

Book your makeup artist or groomer for the big day. You can have your own  in-home personal Glam Squad. Try Priv. You can book your hair  massages with them too.

GET A FACIAL:

Wed.

If you haven’t had one, you’re beyond missing out – it’s the secret to great skin.

DO A TRIAL-RUN:

Thurs.

Try on your entire look from head to toe to prevent any fashion emergencies.  Ensure alterations are correct and comfortable, shoes have insoles if possible, and all elements are prepped to perfection.  Prepping is the last thing you’ll want to worry about at the last-minute.

TAN:

Fri.

Definitely get your spray on.  This article from TanVogue tells you everything you need to know.

PERFECT YOUR BROWS:

Thur.

See a trusted professional to have your eyebrows done.  That goes for you too, guys – and don’t neglect your nose and ears while you’re at it.  Forget eyes being the windows to the soul – it’s the brows that count.

MANI/PEDI:

Fri.

Well-manicured hands are a must for ladies and gents.  Guys, if you haven’t had a pedi before you definitely should partake – it’s the best foot massage ever.  Ladies, opt for a color that compliments the hues you’re wearing rather than matching exactly.  Don’t be afraid to go bold – it only adds to the glamour! 

RELAX AND GO TO BED EARLY :

Sat.

Go to bed early and get your 8 hours in – or more!  A good nights’ sleep is key to looking your best and it is more effective than any product.

ENJOY:

Sun.

Live in the moment and relish every minute of the special, amazing experience you’re a part of!
