How To NOT Break Out Right Before Your Wedding Day

You’ve picked your perfect dress, finalized all of the last minute reception and ceremony details, and have your hair and makeup professionals ready to go–the last thing you need is to break out right before your big day. Every bride’s biggest fear is waking up on her wedding day with a MASSIVE zit on her forehead. Can you imagine?

Luckily, there are ways to make sure you avoid pre-wedding acne and have that beautiful bridal glow as you walk down the aisle. These simple tips will keep your skin looking its very best.

Water

1. Drink Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated is a tip that is on almost every beauty list and for good reason, says Dr. Jacqueline Schaffer, Board-Certified MD and founder of Schique Skincare. "While drinking water is not the be-all-end-all solution to preventing breakouts, it does provide the most benefits. Staying hydrated helps your skin get rid of impurities and keeps your skin moisturized. Caffeine has the opposite effect, and since many of us can’t cut out our daily cup(s) of coffee, make sure you have an extra glass of water per cup of Joe."

Facial

2. Splurge On A Skin Treatment

Dr. Debra Jaliman, board-certified NYC dermatologist and author of Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist, recommends getting a light peel the week before to unclog pores, as well as getting a medical facial a few weeks before to remove any blackheads.

Makeup

3. Don't Try New Products

The weeks and days leading up to your wedding are not the time to be trying out new skincare products or makeup, says Dr. Tania Elliott. "Be sure you have used and had no issues with the makeup products your makeup artist is planning to use on your special day! Your skin doesn’t need any surprises, and with new products, you run the risk of skin breakouts and skin allergies."

4. Wash Your Pillowcase Often

Our pillows collect all of our skin cells, oil, dirt, and bacteria, which are all ingredients for blemishes, says Dr. Schaffer. "If you are feeling like your pores are clogged and bumpy, make sure your pillowcases are getting washed once a week! Many love using a silk pillowcase because it reduces friction and feels better on your skin. Whatever your cloth of choice is, it is essential to wash those pillow covers to keep your face as clean as possible."

Fruits and Veggies

5. Eat Very, Very Clean

Oil, dairy, and even meat can mess with your hormones and make your break out. So do your best to eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats and proteins such as avocados and fish, says Caleb Backe, a health and wellness expert for Maple Holistics.

6. Have A Regular Skincare Regime

Dr. Jaliman says brides should make sure they have a good skin care regimen--and of course, don’t make any drastic changes to it before the wedding.

Yoga

7. Destress

It's no secret that stress can wreak havoc on your skin. "Make sure you factor in some you-time in the days leading up to your wedding. Block off at least 30 minutes a day with nothing to do--no phones, no laptops--just disconnect, be present, and enjoy the moment," says Dr. Elliott.
