I tried to drink a lot of water to keep hydrated and just eating better in general.

About 3 months out I started hitting the gym pretty hard and I got pretty burned out by it and ended up slacking off with the gym the last month. So I definitely recommend going at a realistic pace. If you can afford a personal trainer I would go for it to keep you motivated, or a workout buddy would probably be a good motivator as well 🙂

I starting tanning about 3 weeks before the wedding which gave me a nice glow and cleared  up my skin a bit. I also tried to wear makeup as little as possible to help clear out my pores. I tried to cut out sweets completely, but that just made me crave sweets even more! Just try and limit the sweets intake, but don’t halt it!

I hope that helps!

Moisturize and eat better in general! I usually just put lotion on my face, but I started getting better about moisturizing any area of my body that would be exposed during the wedding – so face, neck, shoulders, arms, etc!

In addition to moisturizing, I’ve started exfoliating a few times a week, too. Get a body scrub – it really helps with those dry elbows and knees, and makes the rest of your skin super soft. I use Boots Mediterranean Body Scrub – its $10 at Target:
