Important events are moments in our lives when we want to feel our best. Hence, it’s usually the time when we want to give our skin a little extra TLC! Whether you have a wedding, a prom, a graduation, or simply a big celebration in the works––read on below to learn about how you can bring your best skincare game forward!
EXFOLIATE THE CANVAS
Exfoliating your face (and your body!) a few days before the big day will remove dead skin cells, therefore helping your skin clear up and feel silky smooth. Starting 3-4 days before your big day will allow enough time for cell renewal, which will also help the appearance of makeup.
We highly recommend incorporating antioxidant serums or masks leading up to an event. Antioxidant formulas are great at revealing a healthy, youthful complexion, as the ingredients work in synergy to help maintain a smoother and brighter look.

HYDROPEPTIDE HYDROSTEM: STEM CELL ANTIOXIDANT SERUM
While your skin will be feeling great after some exfoliation, it will also be vulnerable. It’s important to protect the skin barrier by using nutrient-rich moisturizers day and night (which will, in turn, boost an exfoliant’s efforts).

BE MINDFUL OF YOUR HABITS
It's a good idea to avoid indulgences that can lead to last-minute blemishes or swelling, such as unhealthy refined sugars, salts, or high-fat foods. There's nothing like puffy eyes to make everyone think you're tired!
Make sure to guzzle on lots of water in the days leading up to the big day as well, as this will reflect in your glow.
ON THE DAY OF…
When the big day has arrived, make sure to keep hydrating yourself and give yourself some time for a nice, preparation routine. Hydrating eye gels––such as the Babor 3D-Hydro Gel Eye Pads––will help reduce the appearance of fine lines, and a cold jade rolling or gua sha session will help brighten you up.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST…
While we love the results of a good microneedling or chemical peel, remember to keep yours at least a month away from an event in order to avoid unwanted redness or reactions. The weeks before are also not the right time to start experimenting with new products. Stick with what your skin already knows and loves!
Until next time,
