Determine Your Skin Type
Pay attention to your skin to determine whether your skin is oily, dry, or a combination of the two. If you find that your skin is oily even in dry or cold weather and you have oil buildups in the T-zone of your face, you likely have oily skin. If your skin is peeling or extremely sensitive when you forget to use moisturizer, you probably have dry skin. If your skin is oily in the spring and summer and drier in the fall and winter, you have what is commonly classified as “combination” skin. Keep in mind the date and location of your wedding to determine if you need sun, rain, or humidity protection. As the season changes, so do the needs of your skin.
Find A Great Medical Aesthetician
It’s a good idea to find a qualified medical aesthetician to help you maintain your skin and treat chronic skin issues. A medical aesthetician is different from an esthetician. Estheticians usually work in salons and spas and perform non-invasive skin services, including body wraps, waxing, and facials. On the other hand, medical aestheticians have more extensive knowledge of the functions of the skin and products that will help your specific situation. These medical professionals can also provide you with a regimen you can follow at home between your appointments. For instance, your medical aesthetician may prescribe an organic pH-balanced body wash so you can cleanse your skin without using harsh chemicals. During your appointments, you may get an acid peel, microdermabrasion, or micro-needling. You’ll learn how to care for your skin in between these intense treatments to see vast improvements in your skin. Be sure to visit the Aesthetician well before your wedding date so that you can be well into your skincare routine and already benefitting from its effects before you walk down the aisle.
Get Skincare Product Samples
When you’re shopping for new cleansers, toners, and serums, shop at a retailer that offers several samples for you to try. This allows you to try products from various brands to find out what works for you. You may find that a certain brand offers all the products you need to improve your skin, or you may need a combination of products to get the best results. When you’re able to get samples of products formulated for your skin type, you can find the best items for your skincare regimen without spending a ton of money. It’s a good idea to become a rewards member at your favorite skincare retailer so you can receive samples often as a cost-effective way to continue improving your skin.
Use Fragrance-Free Facial Products
Many skincare products have fragrances to make the skincare process more pleasant. However, fragrances can irritate your skin, especially if you’re sensitive to chemicals. Fragrances are also made from chemicals which means that fragrant cleansers and serums can clog your pores and cause rashes and blemishes. You may also experience an allergic reaction If you use products that contain fragrance. If you’re trying to get rid of skin irritation and breakouts, you may want to use products free of fragrances and other harmful chemicals that can irritate your skin and cause negative reactions.
It’s also a good idea to find a dermatologist in your area to get regular checkups and professional advice about caring for your skin even after your wedding day. You may need a prescription or two for a few months before your wedding to get your skin on track so you can use many of the quality products you’ll find at your local skincare retailers to maintain your complexion. Then, with a new routine that works well for your skin, you’ll have perfect skin for your big day!
