6 MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING
Six months is the perfect amount of time to ensure that your skin is clear, smooth and glowing for the big day. Book a facial! During your consultation and facial we can come up with a plan for skin care treatments and home care products that works with your budget and will address your skin care concerns for beautiful wedding day photos!
3 MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING
At this point you will need to make a commitment to not pick at your skin. Acne breakouts usually last just 3-5 days, but when you pick at a blemish, the red mark that lingers can be there for three months! I know it’s tempting, but you can make problem skin much worse by forcing bacteria deeper into the skin, resulting in scarring and further break outs. As said above, the best solution for problem skin is a regular facial schedule, where your pores can be cleaned professionally.
At the 3 month mark we will now begin to cut back on more intense treatments if that has been in the treatment plan for you and focus now on maintaining results. I recommend a facial every 3-4 weeks for the remaining 3 months.
1 MONTH BEFORE THE WEDDING
Go easy. Now that you’re on the home stretch, it’s not the time to be experimenting with new products or services. Keep everything gentle.
Avoid dairy products if you’re prone to acne cysts. Many people have heard that greasy foods and chocolate cause breakouts. Breakouts, especially those that are cyst-like in the chin and jaw line area, most often are related to too much ice cream, yogurt, milk and cheese. Try cutting back and watch your skin clear up!
Get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Sleep is not only important to keep dark circles at bay, but it is also the time when your body is most metabolically active, ridding itself of toxins which would otherwise wreak havoc with your skin. Sleep also reduces stress, the #1 aggravator of acne!
Keep your skin care products cold. When nerves are at their highest, it can cause increased blood flow to the skin. Try keeping your skin care products in the refrigerator. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing with cool temperature products keep the skin calm and soothed.
3-7 DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING
Get your final facial. The facial will focus on skin smoothing via exfoliation and hydration. We will keep extractions to a minimum to avoid unnecessary redness.
Don’t experiment with any new products. You don’t want to risk having an adverse reaction to anything—stick with tried and true.
Avoid shell fish. Especially for those who have traveled to a tropical island for their wedding, you’ll be tempted with all the wonderful seafood that is there. Many people are allergic to iodine commonly found in shell fish which can result in very serious skin and body reactions, so now is not the time to be eating foods you have not tried before.
Limit your intake of alcohol. Alcohol leads to skin and under eye puffiness, so for every alcoholic drink, follow it with a 4-8 oz glass of water. This will help prevent unnecessary morning puffiness.
Avoid crying (if possible). With all of the celebratory speeches that are given, it’s only normal that a few tears may be shed. If at all possible, try to avoid crying since it causes the eyes to swell resulting in excessive morning under eye puffiness.
Apply a gel mask. Gel masks like AND's Soothing Masque are water-based so they won’t add any oil to the skin and interfere with wedding day makeup. They calm the skin from wedding day nerves, and gives your skin a smooth, healthy glow.
Drink a lot of water. To prevent skin from puffiness due to shedding tears or alcohol intake the night before, drink cold ice water throughout the day. This will also help prevent your mouth from getting dry due to nerves.
Practice deep breathing. There is nothing better to calm the nerves than frequent deep breathing. Relax. Enjoy. Your day is here!
