Have a Wedding Coming Up? How to Get Your Skin Ready For It

skin careIf you yourself are getting married this summer or if you are simply in the bridal party, then you will want to look your best. Not only will you be in pictures that will last for forever, but you also want to have the confidence you need when walking down the aisle. As one of the best ways to look your best, having good skin care is key. From getting a chemical peel to wearing the right makeup, this article will discuss some of the ways that you can get your skin ready for the big day.

Chemical Peel
Chemical peels are used to treat a variety of skin issues including acne, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. If you suffer from any of these issues and would like to get your skin cleared up before the wedding day, consider getting a chemical peel from Dr. Toni Stockton. During the chemical peel, a chemical like hyaluronic acid will be applied to your skin for just a few minutes and then will be taken off. For the next week following your peel, you can expect your skin to look a bit red and to start to slough off. By having your skin slough off, new skin will be regenerated, which will leave you with a healthier and clearer looking complexion. It should be noted, however, that you should get your chemical peel done at least 2-3 weeks before the big day so that you don’t experience any redness or peeling.

IPL
Intense pulse light or IPL photofacials are used to treat sun and acne scars. Although they are ideal at giving brides and bridesmaids that healthy, dewy look that they have always wanted, they need to be done at least a few months before your big day. So, if you are getting married in the fall or winter, then you should contact Toni Stockton today to schedule your appointment.

Makeup
Whether you are are hiring a makeup artist to do your makeup or if you are doing it yourself, make sure that you get both your concealer and your foundation matched to your skin. Otherwise you will have weird lines on your face that won’t look flattering both in photos and in-person. Plus, wearing the right makeup will help to conceal any blemishes that you may have on your skin.
