Pre-Wedding Skin Care Tips
6th December 2014
To get the best results, they should start preparing their skin at least 6 months before the big day.
6 Months (at least) Before
To prepare the best canvas for your wedding makeup, start by taking care of any significant sun damage and issues with dry, dead skin. Microdermabrasion or a cleansing facial peel will exfoliate the damaged skin and expose the new, smooth skin underneath.
There are a number of different peels to consider such as glycolic peels, which can reduce sun damage and acne breakouts, or salicylic acid peels, which are good for oily skin. You can consult your dermatologist to see which one is best for your specific skin needs.
Make sure to get it done at least 6 months before the big day, so you can see how your skin reacts to the treatment, and then you can have another one done closer to the wedding day.
If you are considering any procedures such as fillers or injectables, make sure to have them done well in advance, so that your skin has time to settle.
1 Month Before
At this stage in your preparation, don’t change your skincare routine. Trying anything new such as a new peel or facial could cause your skin to react negatively. Instead, just continue to take care of your skin as instructed by your dermatologist.
1 Week Before
Prepare yourself for the big day by drinking lots of water, moisturizing your skin daily and lightly exfoliating. Although it may be difficult, try to keep your stress levels down, to minimize the possibility of a breakout.
If you're nervous about waking up with a pimple on the big day, you can speak to your dermatologist in advance about a prescription corticosteroid to stop inflammation.
Overall, just relax and enjoy your big day. If you're prepared well enough in advance, you shouldn't have any significant skin issue, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.
