Visiting the Dermatologist before Your Wedding Day

Clean. Healthy. Equipped

Large

You have a lot to think about as an upcoming bride. Your extremely long list of things to do tends to include a million things like the dress, the venue, the ceremony, the guests, and much more. The stress and pressure that you’re under might cause your skin to act out; triggering pimples, acne, zits, you get the image. We bet that visiting the dermatologist before your wedding wasn’t in your schedule, but it is now! 

Visiting the dermatologist four months before your wedding might actually save your life, scratch that, it will definitely save your life! After all, makeup can only cover up so much, it’s all about the skin underneath, and if the skin is healthy, the makeup will look flawless. Add working on fixing your complexion to your list of priorities and make sure you start early; skin products for instance, like creams, serums, and gels, they take time to work. On the other hand, if you do not suffer from any medical skin conditions, you’ll probably only need some minor work done, or maybe if you’re fine with the way your skin is, you will just need to learn the proper method to take better care of it. Regardless of anything else, Some people like to change things up a little bit, as well. For example: getting lip injections or wrinkle fillers. Here are 5 professional tips provided by acclaimed dermatologists and tailored specifically for any bride-to-be.

If your wedding is just months away and you still have no idea how to take care of your skin, then this one’s for you.

There’s no rush

Some take better care of their skin than others, but brides in particular usually just visit the dermatologist before the wedding anyway. Here’s the thing, there’s no written manual on the matter because people have different skin types and that’s why your dermatologist visit is the only way to really find out how to correctly take care of your skin, which products to use, what diet to go for, what to avoid, and how to treat your skin. On a side note, please understand that this is not like your "Hogwarts" acceptance letter, meaning; you are not going to wake up the next day with a flawless complexion or an unmatchable dewy glow. Patience, my friend. 

Fighting facial crime

Your dermatologist’s job is to take care of any abnormalities in case you have acne, pimples, burns, a rash, or anything that needs immediate medical treatment. Your doctor may also suggest that you wait until your face is healed before they start working on it. Follow the recommended diet and do not skip your meds, if you’re prescribed any. 

Weighing your beauty options

Nowadays, cosmetic procedures are as easy as getting your nails done, that’s why everyone seems to be on board with it. Brides-to-be are on top of the list as they find that getting things done before the wedding is the perfect time to do so and to try out new stuff. Before discussing all your options with your doctor, you need to state clearly what bothers you about your skin and what you would like to change, for example: getting rid of fat deposition or fine lines, altering your skin tone or carving your jaw. Anything can be bettered and adjusted now that we have chemical peeling, mesotherapy, laser, lifting, etc. Going under the knife may sound terrifying, while that’s not really the case. All you need to do is plan it well, have some patience, and choose the right doctor to deal with your pretty face.

Choose your needle carefully

Plastic surgeries are super popular now so, make sure that whoever’s about to lay their hands on you is an actual dermatologist and not just another inexperienced rookie working at a beauty clinic or a spa. Go for well-known, certified, and reputable doctors who specialize in cosmetic treatments; and then just let it be. Some procedures can be undone, fixed, altered or touched up, and that’s why you’ve got to go for it 4-6 months before the wedding just in case you don’t like the changes after they’re made.  

Emergency call

After establishing a good relationship with your doctor, you can start calling him occasionally when you need to ask for a piece of advice on what do if you experience any breakouts before your menstrual cycle or any stress-induced acne or anything of that sort. 

 

Lastly, remember when you were little how every time you caught a cold, your grandma would give speeches on the importance of eating fruits and vegetables? It’s sort of the same thing now; eating clean, exercising, drinking water, and sleeping well are the main factors in sustaining healthy skin. Let’s get that glow on! 

 

Remember to consult your dermatologist before making any impulsive decisions, sister.
