How To Get Smooth, Perfect Prom Skin

You’ve already found all the accessories you’ve ever dreamed about, and you’ve got your dream dress. You’ve even mastered that sexy red lip or smoky eyes, and you’ve got the guy! So, the only thing you need to get right before prom night is your skin.

Don’t worry! You really don’t need to panic about it. You’re doing your research, checking expert predictions on dazzling prom dresses 2019 fashionistas will go gaga over; you’ve also spent ages perfecting your makeup. Well, just take the time to get your skin on point and you’ll be photo-ready and glowing on prom night!

Six Weeks Before The Big Night

You’re probably aiming for super-clear skin for the night, right? That requires some serious skin care dedication, and perhaps even a consultation with a skin care therapist. If you have problem skin or need advice on getting things right, you may want to book a skin analysis with your beautician to figure out what’s going on with your skin and get advice on the right products to clear it up. If you’re in a rush, there are skin mapping tools online you might like to try.

Five Weeks Before Your Prom

In the five weeks leading up to prom, you should focus on the three main skin issues that may be causing your breakouts: excessive oil pollution, clogged pores and breakout-causing bacteria. Find a product designs to target these problems, preferably in an easy, 3-step regimen of cleansing, toning and moisturizing.

If possible, ask your parents to stop using dryer sheets, too, that have artificial fragrances. These usually clog pores and irritate skin. If you can, switch to non-comedogenic makeup that won’t clog up your pores and drink plenty of water to clear away those break-out inducing toxins.

One Month To Go

If you’re following the above two points, your skin should be looking and feeling amazing. This is the time to start using a blackhead clearing and pore control scrub to get rid of pore-clogging, dead cells. You should also start using a cooling face mask once or twice a week.

If you take medication for acne and your skin feels irritated or dry, switch to a more hydrating lotion to help calm your skin down and banish dry patches.

Two To Three Weeks Before Your Prom

If you’ve chosen a beautiful dress that shows off your arms, chest or back, make sure you’re probably rinsing off soaps, gels and hair conditioner. They can all cause acne. Make sure you’re exfoliating, too.

Seven Days To Go

In the run up to prom, try to get loads of skin-healing rest. If you suffer a break out, don’t panic. Get a good quality product that will stop spots in their tracks and always resist the urge to pop them.

On The Day Of Prom

You’ve made it! If you’ve been dedicated and diligent, your face should be smooth and ready for your perfect prom makeup.

Before you do apply makeup, make sure you cleanse, tone and moisturize just the way you have been, and you can head off clear, smooth and glowing!
