Crash Diets, Lasers & Lashes: 3 Things To Try For Your Wedding Now

If your wedding date is fast-approaching, you know how desperate times can call for desperate measures. Mine is in 4 months (gulp), and I’ve made myself a guinea pig for anything and everything that is approved by the FDA. Having tried them, I can tell you these 3 are totally worth it:

1. Semi-Permanent Mascara

Last week, I tried LashDip ($250) at Courtney Akai Lash Lounge (awesome lash extensions, btw), and I’m all about it. The procedure lasts 6 weeks and takes about an hour to apply. You’re left with darker, fuller lashes that don’t budge; try the procedure to get through rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and of course – the big day.

2. Crash Diet

Ok, I don’t mean an actual crash diet (we can’t promote starvation here), I’m talking about Rodial’s new Crash diet. The Crash Diet Sticks ($60) melt fat and reduce water retention, and the protein Crash Diet Smoothie ($60) tastes amazing with skim milk and is shockingly filling for only 70 calories. I high recommend this program as a last minute weight loss tool.

3. Laser Hair Removal

If you haven’t had an excuse to splurge on laser hair removal yet, let your wedding day be it. Laser is the way to go if you have medium or dark hair – the permanent procedure gives you one less thing to worry about on your wedding day. I got my under arms done at Completely Bare Spa in NYC and now feel 10x better in my strapless wedding gown. And no, I don’t missing having to shave there everyday at all.
