Skin Care

Ok ladies share your skin care secrets to prepare for the big day. How far ahead do you start? I tend to get acne when I get nervous. I use lotion on my hands about 100 a day because of work I wash my hands thousands of times. I want to have my eye brows shaped and waxed. They are light colored so I might have them darkened some

 I just wash morning and night with a cream cleanser. (Almost) Every morning I moisturize with Garnier moisturizer that has some lightening agents for my uneven skin tone. I think leading up to the day, depending on your skin, getting a facial a few weeks before usually makes you glow! And having the right makeup artisti! lol

Oh and definitely definitely with the eyebrow shape/wax..for sure!

 I always use Neutrogena facial foaming cleanser and toner and use Ambi for a daily moisturizer. I did the same for the wedding. I use the Neutrogena make up eye remover and make up remover facial pads. I just always try to make sure my face is clean and clear of my daily make up to avoid any facial problems.

No matter how hard it might be, don't PICK! I'm notorious for that but when I pick my face gets worse, so months before the wedding I forced myself to stop and my face was clear for the big day. I would make sure your cleanser isn't too harsh and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! My aunt schesduled me for a wedding facial a few weeks before the big day and I was so nervous that it would bring everything to surface. But, it was a special wedding one, so they were super careful with my skin and it turned out OK. But I would avoid any deep clean facials at least a month (maybe two) before the wedding.

I also made the switch from liquid to mineral powder. I've tried all kinds and so far I like Bare minerals (but it's a bit pricey) I also like AVON and Maybeline mineral powder. 

As for your eye brows, have you ever tried brow powder? My brows are pretty thin at the ends so they did that and I think it was just perfect. Just an alternative to dye! (I also waxed, and made sure to only see my trusted hair stylist)

I started dying my hair about a year before the wedding and I found a color I LOVED, so I kept up with that.

Oh I also started tanning about 2 months before the wedding.  I tried a spray tan but hated it. I know its horible, but we had a November wedding and I didn't want to be pale. I didn't go often, because I didn't want to look so dark in November either, but just enough so I wouldn't look sickly pale!

Well I believe for the wedding the much you prepare is less. I am using all home remedies for my skin care. I have got some fine lines and wrinkles for which I am using derma set anti aging cream that has succeeded in dminishing my wrinkles. I am applying honey on my face to get it glowing.

 I get acne as well, and not just the "OMG I've got a pimple" kind of acne. I have deep cystic acne that usually has to be treated by a dermatologist. However, I have found a great daily regiment that helps my skin out dramatically. 

I start off with washing my face with medicated wash, and I mix it with natural scrub. I love mixing Clean and Clear Morning Burst with Queen Helene natural face scrub in Mint Julep. Clean and Clear is available at Walmart for about $6 per bottle, and the Queen Helene can be found at Sally's Beauty Supply for about $5 per bottle.

When I get out of the shower, I wipe my face down with Sea Breeze ($3/bottle at Walmart) and Witch Hazel. The Astringent gets rid of any deeper dirt that your washing may have missed, and the Witch Hazel reduces swelling and inflammation in any existing acne bumps, including deep cystic acne. After I wipe my face and neck down, I let it dry completely before moving on to my moisturizer. 

After my face dries, I apply Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer to my face. The oil-free formula doesn't clog my pores, and it has Salicylic Acid, which treats the acne I have and prevents breakouts. I have combo skin; my forehead is extremely dry while everything else has enough oil to fill up a McDonald's deep fryer, so I focus a bit more moisturizer on my forehead and do a normal application to the rest of my face and down my neck. 

 

I supplement this this daily regiment with an at-home microdermabrasion treatment twice a week, usually Sunday and Wednesday. I use Mary Kay's TimeWise Microdermabrasion Kit, which is $50 per kit, and will last you about two months depending on how much of it you use for each treatment. It's a whole lot cheaper than going to the aesthetician, and it really does work. I usually do this treatment at night after I've removed all of my makeup. 

 

I hope this helps. :)
