Zit free wedding day

One thing I was so worried about was having a big fat zit in my face on my wedding day. I'll be honest... I have terrible skin. I have been fighting with acne my whole life. No fun at all.

So, I decided early on that I needed to take care of my face prior to the big day of there was any shot of being zit free.

First, I started paying attention to exactly what makes me break out. This was not a study that could be done over night. It took a while for me to figure out exactly what did it for me. I came up with two reasons: stress and that time of the month. Stress was the one that I was most worried about because weddings are stressful.

The way I battled the stress was getting a lot of things done early. Obviously there will always be last minute things, but the more prepared you are the better. My face thanked me for it!!

For my shower, one of my bridesmaids got me a gift certificate for a "refresh facial." I used this exactly one month before the wedding. This was exactly what I needed to give my face a good clean starting foundation.

After the facial, I did a proactiv facial mask once a week. I didn't want to go crazy and have my face react to harsh treatment so I stuck to once a week.

I also used my three step proactiv face wash twice a day.

By the time the wedding came, my skin had NEVER looked better in my life. Even the girl that was doing my makeup commented on how great my skin was. I had never heard a comment like that before. I was always the girl with mild acne. But on my wedding day, I was zit free!!!!! :)

What is your skin care regime?

Take care until next time,
