You would have spent a good deal of time in picking up the right dress for your prom! It is now time to invest some quality time to take care of your skin to look pretty. While there lies an underlying quintessential need for applying makeup, there are a few things that you should take care of before that! Take a walk through some of the most effective skincare tips to show off that radiant skin on the prom day!
Start following this skincare regimen at least two weeks before the prom for maximum benefits!
Use a soap-free cleansing solution to eliminate the dirt and other undesirable things that get attached to your skin. Cleanse at least four times a day, twice with the solution and twice just with plain water. This will help in keeping your skin clean.
A skincare regimen sans exfoliation can never be termed as a good one. This step is essential to eliminate the dry, dead cells that otherwise would accumulate beneath the skin, leaving you will a dull skin. Choose a homemade exfoliating agent that uses oatmeal, yogurt, and honey as ingredients to get a glowing complexion. Exfoliate twice a week for optimal results.
Ditch the toner!
Toners were invented during a time when alkaline soaps were used to cleanse the skin. It was a solution for restoring the natural pH levels of the skin. Now that you have cleansers that come with pH-balance formulas avoid using the skin to preventing it from drying.
Refrain from experimenting with new facials and makeup products!
You will be tempted to try out that new glowing facial advertised or some new makeup product! Strictly saying, it is not the right time to experiment with these things as they could cause eruptions, leaving your skin blotched and red. Stick to your usual skincare products.
Waxing should be done with care!
Do not try waxing your skin just a day or two before your prom, especially if you have sensitive skin. It is a good idea to get rid of that unwanted hair well in advance to avoid any irritation, but not that earlier as they would trigger hair growth.

Water is one of the most vital components for a clean and clear skin. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day to help your skin flush out the toxins and maintain that natural glow.
You can include more portions of antioxidant rich food stuff in your diet. Let go of your colas and chips. They will negatively impact your skin, especially if you have oily, acne-prone skin. Choose to eat more of whole grain foods. Avoid excess intake of caffeine also as caffeine promotes the drying of the skin.
It is a big day for sure, and you will be all excited! But do not forget to catch up with that adequate dose of sleep lest you want a puffy face to ruin your day!
Matte Lips !
Apply lip balm or a very thin layer of coconut oil before your matte lipstick so your lips don’t get dehydrated.
