I hate to suggest this as I know there are future health risks… But going to the tanning bed generally clears my skin up. I’m not talking like get baked or burnt or anything. But your skin may appreciate a little dose of vitamin D & clear up. Just once or twice for under 10 minutes might help out. Everyones skin is different though, good luck!

tanning is a great idea!  i think i’m actually going to go do that after i post this!  i’m gonna be a little more tan than my fiance and as long as you’re not orange or overly fake tanned i don’t think it will be an issue!  just be careful not to get burned, cuz the white dress will accentuate everything!

First of all, if you take an antibiotic, it will clear you right up for your big day. The anti-bacterial properties really combat breakouts.

Can you go to the dermatologist? They can give you an injection of cortisone which will get rid of your pimple that day.

Also, have you tried a clay mask? You can put that on the problem areas to help with redness and inflamation. 

You know what is a wonderful spot reducer? Green tea!!! Seriously. Just take a tea bag, pour about a tablespoon of water onto a little bowl, and heat it up with the teabag. Place the warm bag on your pimple and it will help it go down. 

Good luck.

Try drinking green tea.  It really helps to calm me down and helps to eliminate antioxidants and helps reduce my acne.

Hmm in regards to the lumps on your neck – I dont think they’re blemish related to be honest. When I am stressed, I tend to get these lumps at the sides of my neck (right down below the ear line) and I have been to a doctor about it and its just sress etc. So maybe that is all these ‘cysts’ are with all your work stress and the excitement of a wedding coming up.

as for the breakouts, I agree with mrshymanroth about usuing a clay mask, it definetly helps with oil production that can cause the breakouts.

Your idea with the zinc is very great as well. Maybe try some Omega-3, I love flax seeds in my food and its a great source of the omega-3, try it freshly ground into some yogurt, or some baking! mmm

One thing to keep in mind is DO NOT over dry your skin, or freak out and try to ‘pver process’ everything you’re doing to  make it go away, ultimatly it can cause it to get worse and flare up more!

in regards to you saying this "I’ve just been so diligent with the microdermabrasion and moisturizing and the washing…I can’t believe just a week before we are having breakouts." just know you  may be doing everything text book to keep your skin clear, but being stressed out/hormones could be the biggest factor in all of this!

good luck mizuno!
