Best Skin Care Products of The Knot's 2019 Beauty Awards
The secret to flawless bridal makeup? A flawless complexion. If there’s ever an ideal time to amp up your with the best skin care products out there—the months leading up to your wedding are it. That’s right, we said months. While it may be tempting to splurge on pricey creams and serums a few days before your nuptials and expect instant results, a solid routine—even with the best skin care products you can find—actually takes several weeks to take effect. (And, thanks to something called the “purging effect,” your skin may get worse before it gets better, especially if you’re using serious anti-aging ingredients like retinol or AHAs for the first time.)
So, to avoid all of this unnecessary stress, start thinking about your pre-wedding skin care about six months out from your wedding date. If you’re struggling with acne, hyperpigmentation or wrinkles, plan to see a dermatologist to come up with a treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. Otherwise, investing in good products and spending just a few extra minutes on your skin every day can yield amazing results.
