If you are thinking about shopping for the perfect homecoming dress or buying a beautiful dress for an upcoming formal dance, then you’re in a bit of a challenge. Because along with all these preparations, your skin also needs to be prepped.
No other accessory can beat flawless and radiant skin. Right skin care is very important to keep skin fresh and glowing.
Today we are going to look at those five tips to help your skin prep for an upcoming big event.
1. Maintain skin care routine
Being committed means you need to be more diligent on your skin care regimen. Your mind can come up with a lot of excuses but don’t listen.
For those of us who are not blessed with faultless complexions, we need to commit to a skin care regimen in order to see improvements. Major concerns such as uneven skin tones, dark spots, redness, and acne can’t be addressed in just one night and in severe cases may even involve the help of a dermatologist.
All the skin care regimens need time to show results hence it is very important to be patient! Most of us tend to stop if we don’t see quick results. We become lazy sometimes.
Typically, skin adapts to skin care products within four to six weeks and it takes at least eight weeks to observe changes. Some treatments last as long as six months to a year, such as medications for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and recurring acne or pimple breakouts.
2. Start early and prioritize
Skin cannot be changed naturally in an overnight. Hence starting a skin care regimen well before the event is highly recommended. Just like while buying 2019 red homecoming dresses if you rush at the end time, you may end up with buying a different size dress.
Since big events take lots of time in terms of shopping, and skincare, It may even be helpful to create a timeline so you can set deadlines and monitor your progress.
If you think you have a number of skin concerns that need to be addressed, start with the most pressing ones. Acne, which is a problem for many, usually requires a longer treatment procedure considering the scars and spots that it leaves behind.
Thus prioritizing problems help a lot because they take a longer time to resolve. If the problem is severe, cannot be solved by yourself using available skincare products then consult a dermatologist for a quick resolution.
3. Avoid major skin care procedures a day before the event
Leave the skin as it is! Don’t try anything because going through significant changes right before your big day is a major no-no.
Don’t start using any new skin care products one or two days before your formal event. Stop using Invasive treatments and injectable cosmetic products when you are at least a week toward the special event.
These require some time for healing and recovery hence they should be out of the picture.
4. Schedule facials
As part of daily skin care routine, we recommend using homemade face packs for better results.
However, scheduling facials during events like homecoming or formal dance helps because parlors generally have a special procedure.
Two weeks prior to the big event, get a deep cleansing facial to help eliminate blackheads and blemishes.
On the following week, go for hydration and brightening facial. Finally, go for a “red carpet” facial two days before the big day to tone your skin, lessen puffiness, and revitalize your look.
The night before the homecoming dance, exfoliate your entire body to make your skin smooth and glowing.
5. Sleep regularly
Sleep is very important. Lack of sleep may lead to dark circles, wrinkles and dull skin.
Thus sleep is crucial to your skin’s for the overall health. During sleep, our skin produces collagen and elastin thus replenishing skin cells. As a result, skin looks healthy and plumpy.
Follow these tips to rock the event with glowing skin.
