Maximize Your Wedding Day Glow With These Tips

Glowing wedding day skin is on every bride’s wish list, and it’s absolutely attainable with proper planning and guidance.  Our team of highly experienced anti-aging experts at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh is here to share some tips to boost and maximize your glow so you can feel your very best on your special day!  

  • If you haven’t already established a consistent daily skincare routine, NOW is the time!  Your daily skincare routine should include: 
    • Gentle cleanser in the morning, evening and after exercise.  
    • Moisturizer application to keep your skin hydrated and smooth.  
    • Vitamin C + retinol products for anti-aging.  Vitamin C brightens the skin, evens skin tone and protects the skin from environmental stressors that can come during the day.  Retinol (aka Vitamin A) firms and tightens the skin.  Both products can be used together, but they should not be applied at the same time – apply Vitamin C in the morning and Retinol in the evening.  
    • Sunscreen application to your face and neck (YES, even if it’s cloudy out) and reapply after prolonged periods out in the sun. 
  • Exfoliate with a gentle exfoliation product 1-3 times each week (depending on your skin type).  ZO SKIN HEALTH® Exfoliating Polish is an amazing, gentle polish that delivers an insta-glow and amazingly smooth skin!   
  • Consider additional skincare products to address specific concerns, such as acne, redness, spots and pigmentation. The best way to determine the best products to improve your skin condition is to consult with a licensed medical esthetician.
  • Hydrate from within! You should consume plenty of water each day.  A good rule of thumb is to drink 0.5-1.0 ounces of water for each pound you weigh.  
  • Schedule monthly facials to refresh and hydrate your skin, unclog pores, and improve the appearance of specific skin concerns.  HydraFacial gives you glowing, firm and more youthful looking skin in just 30 minutes!  And there are a variety of booster options to address your specific concerns, whether it be hyperpigmentation, acne, redness, wrinkles, etc.  
  • Erase forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines (aka the dreaded 11’s) and crows feet around the eyes with a neurotoxin treatment 1-2 months before the big day.  
  • If you’re looking to soften & contour your facial profile, and add volume to the areas including the cheeks, chin, jawline and lips, you may consider non-surgical filler treatments. Filler treatments should be done several months in advance to ensure satisfactory results.  Definitely plan ahead!  
  • If you are looking for more dramatic results to improve the appearance of aging and problematic skin vs. skincare products and facials alone, you may consider laser and IPL (intense pulse light) treatments.  They are more intensive treatments, and when combined, they are even MORE powerful!  These treatments should also be scheduled several months in advance to make time for multiple treatments if needed to achieve the desired results.    
    • CoolPeel CO2 laser treatments deliver a total skin rejuvenation with little downtime.  CoolPeel treatments dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, minimize pore size and improve dullness and skin texture in 1-3 appointments (typically scheduled a month apart). 
    • BBL Hero treatments penetrate into the deeper layers of skin and deliver remarkably clear and refreshed skin.  BBL Hero is great for addressing hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne, inflammation and redness. It also helps to remove unwanted dark colored hair.

Reduce Your Chances of Developing Maskne

MaskneWearing a mask is an essential part of our everyday lives. Many of us are learning that wearing a mask for prolonged periods of time can cause skin irritation and breakouts. Maskne (acne that occurs from wearing masks) occurs when sweat, oils and dirt get trapped on your skin under your mask. People with pre-existing skin conditions are at an increased risk for developing maskne and other complications like irritation and chafing. We compiled a few tips to keep your face gorgeous, radiant, and healthy while wearing a mask throughout your day.

Reduce Your Chances of Developing Maskne by:

  • Choose a cloth mask made from natural fibers.
  • Wash your mask as frequently as possible (ideally after every use).
  • Wash your mask with unscented laundry products.
  • Ensure your mask has the proper fit. It should cover your mouth and nose without gapping or fitting too tightly.
  • Consider wearing less or no makeup under your mask. No one will see what’s under there anyway!
  • Cleanse and moisturize your face morning and night.
  • Treat yourself to a facial regularly to deep-clean and maintain the health of your skin.

If you would like a recommendation of the best skincare products to use for your skin, call Yelena to schedule a consultation or fill out our online contact form. Products can be purchased over the phone and picked up anytime during our office hours.
