I’ll do an Erythromycin-creme with 0,5% Erythromycin before my wedding. My skin gets sooo perfect. I will start using it one or one and a half months before my wedding. I don’t want to take it earlier though, because it’s an antibiotic and my skin could get used to it and get really bad when I stop using it…

So I think 3 months is a loooot of time.

I think it totally depends on what the dermatologist puts you on – I used Differin for a while and my skin got so red and cracked before it got better and it was awful looking for a while. A different time, they put me on antibiotics and I didn’t have bad reactions. Some things make your skin worse before it gets better, so I’d tell the doc that you need something that isn’t gonna make your skin dry and peely.

Three months should be enough time for your skin to improve. I would discuss your timeline with the doctor so that she understands your needs. I also suggest that you book an appointment for the day before your wedding as a “just in case” backup. That way, if any unwanted “guests” decide to show up you will be able to see the doctor and have it taken care of. If all is well and you don’t need the appointment you can always cancel.

Good luck!
