Skin Care For Your Special Event
You’ve picked the perfect dress, you’ve got the shoes, you’ve got the date – now you have to make sure you have the ultimate accessory: glowing skin. This night is once in a lifetime and you’ll want your best skin confidence so you can put your best face forward.
A week or more before your event, exercise, sleep and control your stress levels to help reduce redness (taking Vitamin B Complex helps reduce stress/anxiety naturally.) Exercise also promotes circulation for good, healthy skin color. When it comes to your diet, avoid spicy foods and caffeine (that means no Starbucks runs that week). Plus, drink lots of water.
Avoid the sun, which can cause discoloration.
Avoid dryness and dullness by not over-washing. Most Vitamin C-based products will produce a beautiful skin radiance, or you can try a radiance product such as Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution (ideally, you’d start using this thirty days before for maximum results).
While it’s understandable that you’d want to do everything you can to avoid a breakout, it’s probably not a good idea to do anything drastic the day before your event. Even something as simple as a facial right before the big day isn’t recommended.
Your skin – especially if it’s sensitive – can be blotchy and red for up to a week after the procedure. Prevent future acne flare-ups by applying a thin layer of your treatment of choice – a benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid solution – all over your face every day for a week before your big event.
