With the Royal Wedding, bridal beauty is on the minds of many—Meghan Markle included. For all brides, though, it’s easy to lose sight of two very important elements on the matrimonial checklist: First up, the reason behind the ceremony altogether and secondly, the often-overlooked ritual of self-care. After all, blemishes and dark circles are no match for that ivory lace frock. And while women may have intended to adhere to a strict regimen of daily hydrating masks, or in Markle’s case, regular holistic facial massages, somehow, cake tastings and welcome bags and family drama got in the way.
