Skincare Rules You Need To Follow Once You’re Engaged
Make An Appointment With Your Derm
Booking a time to see your dermatologist isn’t nearly as exciting meeting with your wedding planner or florist, but it’s just as crucial. It’s the best way to address any complexion issues or concerns with an expert. Your derm will help you come up with a regimen that’s suited for your skin type and will provide insight on how to keep your face glowing and clear.
Stick To A Routine
If you’re all over the place with products, it’s time to hone in on a set routine. Cleanse and moisturize daily. Also, add in a serum that targets your skin’s biggest needs.

Remember The Eye Area
Cut Back On Breakout-Triggering Foods
Once you’re in the final weeks, consume high glycemic foods and dairy in moderation. Many studies have shown they can trigger acne flair-ups, so opting for more greens than grease will maintain a clear complexion.
Trust The Process
Try to stay as calm, cool and collected as possible. Not only will it prevent stress-induced pimples, but you’ll also sleep better, leading to a more refreshed complexion. Additionally, don’t suddenly introduce a new skincare product or treatment into your life close to the wedding since an adverse reaction is the last thing you need. Just be confident in the routine you’ve been doing and stick to it up until it’s time to slip on your wedding gown and become a Mrs..
