It’s never too soon to get into good habits. You are what you eat, so start eating properly, make sure you get your five portions a day of fruit and vegetables and drink plenty of water.

Pamper yourself
Set aside one night a week to pamper yourself. Thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise your face, remembering to use an exfoliator to clear away the dead skin cells.Soak in a relaxing bath and use a body brush or scrub to clear dead skin cells. Wash your hair in a good shampoo and, if it’s been chemically treated or tends to be dry anyway, give it a conditioning treatment which you leave on for 15 minutes or so before washing it out.

Give yourself a pedicure and a manicure. Then moisturise, moisturise, moisturise.

Practise makes perfect
If your skin is pale, consider using a sel-tanning preparation to set off that virginal white gown. But you need to practise to ensure you don’t end up with tell-tale ‘tide marks’ or ‘dirty’ elbows, knees and ankles..

Scrub and moisturise areas of dry skin regularly and exfoliate and moisturise all over before applying your choice of self-tan. The colour only lasts for a few days, so it isn’t a disaster if you mess it up the first time.

Treat yourself
You’ve chosen your perfume for the big day, now splash out on all the accessories. Soap or gel, body lotion, talc and deodorant with the same scent layers the perfume on your skin and ensures your frgrance lasts the whole day. Complete the effect by spraying eau de toilette on your pulse points (actual perfume usually too strong for daytime wear so save that for your evening reception).Quick repair kit

Give your Mum or chief bridesmaid your perfume, powder, lipstick and a small can of hairspray to carry with them so you can make any minor repairs necessary during the day.
