We have countless special events in our lives – proms, formals, weddings, dances and more that we want to look our very best for. It got us thinking how can you prepare your skin leading up to a big event?

1. It’s not just about what you put on your skin, but also your general health. Leading up to that special occasion it’s important that you maintain a healthy, balanced diet, as well as drinking lots of water.

2. Being calm, collected and prepared can also do wonders. Stress has a serious impact on the health of your skin, which is why it’s not uncommon to face a breakout right before an important milestone in your life.

3. A week before you can reduce your pores, hydrate and brighten your skin with a mask like our 5 Minute Skin Purifying Mask . This mask purifies, cleanses and soothes acne prone skin. You may want to repeat this step the night before your big event too.

4. If you don’t already have one, adopt a regular skin care routine the week leading up to the event. If you are prone to acne consider using acne specific products like SkinB5.

It’s important to cleanse your skin morning and night to ensure you are removing all the dirt, makeup, and bacteria you’ve incidentally encountered during the day.  Clogged pores increase the likelihood of acne, providing your skin with the opportunity to breath is important. After you’ve cleansed follow up with a light moisturiser – more if you are prone to dry skin. Top off your skin care routine by taking your daily SKinB5 Acne Control tablets or caplets.

5. Don’t try any new products at least three days before your event. You may not be able to predict how your skin will react to new and unknown ingredients – stick to what you know already works for you!
