But in all of the planning, it's important to make sure you’re looking and feeling your best for the big day and the photo ops, too.

Arithmetic Acne Control ComplexBefore you exchange rings, make sure you’re married to a proper skincare routine. The basics: cleanse, moisturize, treat, and protect. Day and night, you should be sudsing up, hydrating, and applying acne medication (we suggest our Acne Control Complex $30). Always seal the deal with an SPF moisturizer.

  • Tip: If you've struggled with adult acne for more than a few weeks, see a dermatologist now.

Take your makeup for a test run and shop for products that best complement your skin without clogging pores or irritating your acne. To deflect the flash, keep oil at bay during the hours between ceremony and reception with a mattifying product like Boscia's Black Charcoal Blotting Linens $10.

There’s lots of celebrating to do but take it easy on the cakes and champagne for the sake of your pre-nuptial skin. Sugar is a sly villain that messes with our bodies, with possible links to causing overactive sebum production, a.k.a. oily, clogged pores.

Get ready to 'glow' down the aisle! Treat yourself to weekly hydrating masks for skin that boasts a youthful radiance. Clay masks are great for acne-prone skin, helping clear pores and absorb excess sebum. Consider treating yourself to a professional facial, keyword: GENTLE.

1 Week Out

Take a break from the hoopla and check in to the spa for some total relaxation. If your budget is feeling stretched, have your sweetie draw you a soothing bath, followed by a massage. Happy on the inside equals a happier look on the outside.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Drink that water and avoid the tired, dull look of dehydration. Staying hydrated also helps your body flush out toxins. 

The Big Day

Cheers to the happy couple and a beautiful you. Wear a smile--and maybe some SPF for photos in the rose garden.
