Of all the things you do to get ready for your wedding, getting your skin in great shape should be top of the list. Paint shows up best on a clean canvas. Updos are most successful on clean, dry hair. Make up looks best on clean, clear skin. It's all about the prep. The months leading up to your wedding is the perfect time to get your skin looking fabulous. Yes, I said months. The truth is, just like weight loss, there is no quick fix to skin issues, and often the solution may not be what you think.
Time after time, women sit in my make up chair and the first thing they do is tell me what's wrong with their face. A breakout, acne, scarring, pigmentation, dark circles, dryness, rough texture. You name it - you are your strongest critic. The key to having a great make up application on the day of your wedding is to do all you can in the months prior to get your skin in shape. We've got the long lasting make up game down (see the blog posts about airbrush make up and red lipstick), but the best thing you can do is take control of your skin care regimen months in advance. Then, we won't have to use as much make up to cover you up and you can look like your natural, beautiful self on your big day.
The secret to great skin is two-fold. Part one is a great skin care regimen with advanced treatments to go along with it. Part two is your diet. Yes, it's true, the food you eat can have a huge effect on the look of your skin. As more and more research emerges about gut health, the micro-biome and how food can affect the skin, the connection between diet and skin health is plainly obvious.
For the past 6 months, I have been training as a holistic skin specialist at Envision Acne and Skin Care Center in Manalapan, New Jersey. While I have over twenty years of experience in the skin care and beauty industry I have never taken a totally holistic approach to skin care before. The results I have seen with my own eyes on client after client prove that our programs really work.
If you have ever suffered with acne, tried everything under the sun and still suffer breakouts, then you need to try the holistic acne free program we offer at Envision. In our program, we dive into your diet, lifestyle and skin care regimen to attack the acne from all angles, find your source of inflammation and clear it out. We design a skin care regimen to clear your skin quickly. We prescribe supplements to speed healing and encourage healthy skin. We have a 95% success rate with clearing acne in three to six months. We don't believe in antibiotics or things that can harm the body in other ways. We use sustainable methods that allow you to control the health of your skin for years to come. We teach you our holistic approach so you can care for your skin at home correctly, read the signs your body gives you, and adjust as necessary. We schedule you for regular in office treatments so we can properly exfoliate, extract and treat an issues as they arise and adjust your home care routine as necessary. We offer virtual check ins along the way if you need them.
Once your acne is clear, we have a state of the art treatment system in place to help clear any post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and scarring that may be left behind. We use exclusive German technology to treat and repair the skin, restoring it to it's natural beauty. This mega treatment is a combination of several things. We do a light peel, a non suction micro-dermabrasion, a lymphatic drainage massage, nano needling with advanced serums to target specific issues, a mask to address your specific concerns and LED light therapy. We sell these treatments in packages to ensure you see maximum results. We will recommend next level products so you can encourage your results at home. There's nothing like it anywhere in the state and the results are amazing.
Using the same patented German technology, we have the ability to target fine lines and wrinkles. We use a very small nano-needling tool to push serums into the skin that have a Botox like effect on lines and wrinkles. Our serum uses a synthetic alternative to snake venom to relax any problem areas. At the same time the overall appearance of the skin is improved because of all the other modalities. It's your non surgical answer to a face life. I'm talking to all you mothers of the bride out there!
So you see, there are things you can do to improve the look of your skin as you prepare for your wedding. It's so worth the investment of your time and money. You wear your skin everyday. It's a marathon not a sprint when it comes to skin health and beauty. Take this time before the biggest day of your life to get your skin right. You won't regret it!!!
