The stress of planning a wedding can totally wreak havoc on your skin. Luckily, there are a couple of treatments you can undergo to help you achieve poreless perfection on the big day—no matter what your budget is. Here are your options:
No bride wants to wake up to a huge zit on your big day, regular facials are a must—especially if you’re prone to breakouts.
SAVE: Glycopeel Cleaning Facial
This treatment uses different concentrations of fruit acid to help extract pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads while exfoliating dead skin. Depending on the needs of the patient, the concentration varies from 20% to 70% and can be done every week. Tip: If you live in a hot, tropical country like the Philippines or if your skin is sensitive, oily, or acne-prone, opt for this treatment to avoid triggering flare-ups.
Aside from cleaning impurities, exfoliating, and extracting dirt trapped in your pores, what makes the facial so extra is the triple punch of peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid that is massaged into your skin. The results? A dewy complexion, fresher-looking skin, and a smoother canvas for your makeup.
After the wedding celebration comes the honeymoon, so getting a body scrub is a great way to ensure that your skin feels super touchable.
SAVE: Body Scrub with Bleach
After the sea salt and sugar scrub is gently buffed on your skin, your aesthetician slathers on a natural bleaching agent made with grapeseed extract, AHA, and licorice to help whiten skin. So not only will this get rid of dry patches and rough flakes, but it can help even out dark spots and discolorations, too.
SPLURGE: Wet and Dry Dermabrasion
The treatment boosts circulation and improves the texture of your skin, making it supple and soft all over. How? The secret lies in the wand, which gently sweeps the skin of impurities while bathing it in a cocktail of serums.
An inside-out approach is always best, so if you want something more potent than topical treatments, try intravenous or IV beauty drips. Tip: Schedule a consult with the doctor first, because you may need more than one session to get the best (and more lasting) results.
SAVE: Cinderella Drip
This IV infusion makes the treatment more effective, versus popping a multivitamin or slathering on several serums. “As a bonus, it also boosts the immune system and aids in cellular regeneration. Visible lightening is noted with regular infusion, which should be done every two weeks.” says Dr. Michelle Villanueva, managing physician at the Belo Medical Group.
SPEND: Cinderella Royale
Don’t have a lot of time to prep? If you can’t squeeze in several treatments and want glowing skin n-o-w, opt for this extra potent IV mix. “It contains the same ingredients as the Cinderella Drip, but has a higher dose, which allows for a longer interval of treatments and the hastening of the whitening effect,” says Dr. Villanueva.
