Most people already have a set skincare regime they are happy with, but for those who are still looking, here are some of our top skincare picks for a variety of skin types.

For oily skin

What

Face grease in a wedding photo is a no-no. Oil Leviate Mattifying Gel from b.liv by Cellnique reduces facial oiliness while also soothing redness and hydrating the skin.

How

Grapefruit extract regulates oil production and prevents skin inflammation, while its high levels of vitamin C, E and bioflavonoids neutralise cell-damaging free radicals.

For dry skin

What

The Eve Lom Cleanser has a reputation for being one of the best cleansers on the market. The multipurpose product removes make-up, decongests pores, exfoliates and tones without dehydrating the skin.

How

Antiseptic clove oil clears the skin, eucalyptus oil drains toxins, hops oil tones the skin and Egyptian camomile oil and cocoa butter soften it.

For uneven skin

What

The Murad White Brilliance Wrinkle and Pore Refining Treatment is a must-have in the glowing bride's wedding toolbox. The handy treatment lightens dark spots, refines pores and minimises lines, while brightening and evening skin tone.

How

The product claims to reduce the appearance of pores up to 62 per cent with lentil seed extract. Vitamin C brightens the skin and prevents future pigmentation, while Palmaria Palmata extract whitens the skin.

For men

What

Men may not have to worry about make-up, but the least they can do is make sure their skin looks healthy and refreshed on their big day. The Q10 Lifting Face Wash from Mentholatum for Men is a deep cleansing product that will brighten and smoothen skin.
