Although nothing can guarantee flawless skin for your wedding, the right management can greatly improve skin that is prone to breakouts:
See a Dermatologist and Devise a Treatment Plan. You could spend months jumping from one over-the-counter treatment to another with absolutely no improvement at all. When you’re on a deadline, it’s best to bring in the pros right away.
Start a Strict Skin Care Regimen. A good skin care routine will include cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and sun protection, as well will incorporate treatment medications provided by your physician.
Book a Makeup Artist. If you’re opting to have a professonal do your makeup, now is the time to start lining one up. A good makeup artist can help camouflage breakouts, so even if your skin isn’t quite perfect by the time your wedding arrives, at least it can look like it is. The best makeup artists are busy, so book your date well in advance.
Manage Stress. You’re immersed in wedding planning details and starting to feel the pressure. Many studies have shown a link between acne severity and stress. Try yoga, meditation, reading, running, or any other activity that helps you feel more centered. If alleviating stress doesn’t help your skin, it will at least help you enjoy the wedding planning process.
Cortisone Shots! If break-outs flare up just before the big day, a cortisone shots may be just what the doctor orders. Cortisone helps reduce inflammation and flattens out those big blemishes, sometimes within a matter a few hours. Talk to your dermatologist about the possibility of having a cortisone shot done before you desperately need one. Then, if the need arises you can be in and out, without a big fuss.
