At Deep we like to pride ourselves on knowing our products and treatments, and one of the most important times in your life is on your wedding day.
Here are some hints and tips to help you make sure you are in tip top condition on that special day.
Making sure that preparing the skin for the big day is the absolute key to achieving the glowing look. Daily use of Elemis Pro Collagen Eye Renewal and Pro Collagen Marine Cream ensures that fine lines and wrinkles are reduced. Preparation for a wedding can be a stressful period and stress and skin do not go together!
We always make sure you have a trial run for make up and tanning, we would never tan you the day before your big day without you trying it first!!
Three Months To Go
At Home - Try to dry body brush every morning, we recommend using Elemis Cellutox Active Body Concentrate. At night time we recommend using Elemis Cellutox Herbal Bath Sachet and Elemis Targeted Toning Body Cream. For the face we recommend using daily Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser, Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel, Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream, Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask and Eye Serum to keep the skin hydrated.
At The Salon - Why not try a Yonka Wellness Escape Treatment for Body, or treat yourself to a Elemis Skin Solutions Facial.
Two Months To Go
At Home - Carry on with your daily dry body brushing, we then recommend using Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt which is an oil and seal it with the Elemis Exotic Body Balm. In the evening use Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath again followed by Elemis Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt.
At The Salon - Now that your body and skin are squeaky clean we can start to put back in by nourishing and moisturising. Why not try a Spa Experience like the Elemis Targeted Toning Tightener, A powerful blend of massage and detoxifying clay for targeted toning and improved circulation.Tightening and toning are the pillars of this treatment. A powerful blend of salts, minerals and seaweeds work together to target cellulite and poor skin tone on hips, thighs, abdomen and backs of arms. All the bits that will be on show on your big day. We would also recommend a Elemis Pro Collagen Age Defy Facial. Tackle fine lines and wrinkles with the clinically proven* age-defying benefits of marine charged Padina Pavonica and Red Coral. Targeted massage encourages optimum cellular function for nourished, younger looking skin.
At The Salon - Everyone from you the bride to the wedding guests will consider having tanning done, now is the time to have a trial run and make sure you choose the right tan for you! If you are a first time tanner you may have concerns like will the tan rub off onto your dress, by having a trial run you can allay any concerns, we suggest that you wear a white top with a similar neckline so you can see whether the colour transfers. A trial will also give you the opportunity to get the correct shade required. Some people want to look like they have spent the last two weeks in the Maldives whereas others would just like a healthy glow, we use several different tanning brands and they all offer varying different shades of tan. You can choose between spray tan or manual tanning can be more of a luxury body treatment. Of course tanning is not just exclusive to the bride, you may want the bridesmaids tanned too, try to make sure they are not too different in depth of colour, so again we recommend a trial run before the big day, of course not forgetting the Groom, it is proving quite popular with the chaps to have a spray tan before the big day, most of the chaps are looking for a healthy glow rather than a full tan, but again we recommend that you come and see us prior to the big day so we can achieve what you are looking for.

One Month To Go
At The Salon - It's time to think about the all important Make-up, you may also want your bridesmaids to be involved with this and some mother of the brides also like to have their Make-Up applied for them on the special day. Everybody is different and what suits one person not necessarily suits another. Here at Deep we are experts at knowing what will suit and what won't so we will have you and your bridal party looking perfect on your wedding day. We recommend that the bride and the bridesmaids have different make-up. At the inital Make-up consultation this gives us a good chance to get to know you and find out what you are hoping for, if you also have a picture of the dress this helps as the design, colour, fabric all influence your choices. It also helps if you know how you want your hair as hair taken back from the face can change your appearance and could leave your features imbalanced, we can then perform some corrective Make-Up to compensate for this. We can also advise you on how to keep your Make-Up looking fresh on the day. You want to comfortable with your look and equally you should remember that this day will be captured for posterity on photographs and film so you want your Make-Up applied subtly blended for that ultimate close up.

The Day Before
At The Salon - Have your final Spray Tan, and to complete the perfect picture is beautiful nails, whether they are artificial or natural nails, as expert nail technicians at Deep there are a range of services we can provide click here to see the full range. A brides nails are important because of the focus that will be on your hands on the day, and for the photographs of course. From admiring the ring, holding your bouquet, signing the register and cutting your cake, there is more focus on your hands than you think. If you intend on having natural nails on the day then you need to have regular manicures in the weeks leading upto your big day so that your nails are in perfect condition. If you are looking for enhancements and you have never had them done before, again we suggest a trial run to make sure you are happy with the length, look and feel of wearing them. You want to feel comfortable on your Wedding Day! Most brides opt for an elegant and classic french polished look for their Big Day, we also offer Nail Art here at the salon, so we could give them an extra special look for your big day with simple rhinestones. It is not compulsory that you stick to the french manicure look, and some brides like to inject a bit of colour, maybe matching the bridesmaids dresses or theme of the wedding. We use Shellac in the salon and this is perfect for a Wedding as it does not smudge or chip, so leaves you looking perfect on your day. Why stop with your fingers, most brides like to have their Toe Nails looking in tip top condition too, you can have them matching your fingers, or maybe have the colour on your toes to tie in with the bridesmaid dresses if you prefer a more natural look on your fingers. A Pedicure is also a great way to relax and sooth away any stresses leading up to the important day.
We have put together some different Spa and Beauty Packages to help you feel a million dollars on your special day. These aren't set in stone they are just to give you an idea, if you would prefer to tailor make your own package then please contact us.
