Let’s face it, ladies: between the planning, organization, color swatches, seating arrangements and deciding on open bar vs. cash bar… your skin can take a hit. Stress causes skin issues to flare up regardless of what you’re prone to, whether it’s acne, psoriasis or eczema. When it comes to acne, stress releases cortisol, which can throw off the other hormones in your body and cause breakouts on your face or body.
In an effort to help our wonderful brides and readers, we wanted to create a list of our favorite 5 Affordable Beauty Products You Just Can’t Live Without.
#1: Natura Culina
With the movement of safer beauty being one of the top topics in the cosmetic industry, this brand is a favorite. Not only are the products affordable but they also deliver in their performance, and the company believes in the healing power of plants for the skin and body. After trying the products out for a few weeks, one of our own tried out Natura Culina and noticed a change almost overnight after using a combination of their products to address skin concerns.

As an add-on, if you’re looking to splurge for a top quality hair tool, then T3 is your go-to! These tools are second to none when it comes to keeping your hair healthy while also delivering amazing results.
#2 item on our list: Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen
This buttery smooth, soothing UV protection for sensitive skin blends evenly on your skin without the white residue you sometimes see when using the average sunscreen. Try using this as a base to your makeup because everyone knows how important it is to protect that skin! Oh, even better, it’s a favorite among parents with sensitive-skin kiddos.

Our #4 beauty item is the Good Chemistry fragrance line exclusive at Target
One of our favorite things about this line of amazing fragrances is the variety in scents that rage from light and clean, to bold and flirty. Me personally, I went with Wild Child. It made me feel like I was able to identify a scent that I could never find or explain. Good Chemistry also has men’s fragrances and colognes. See them here, or go to your nearest Target to test them yourself!
