i’ve always had problems with my skin too, so i definitely know how you feel. i was so worried that i’d have a face full off pimples on my wedding day!

lay off sugary, starchy foods. they have a tendency to make acne worse.

maybe get a facial about a month before to purge your skin. definitely don’t do it the week of the wedding or you will be broken out.

do you use any type of medicine to treat your breakouts?

i use clindamycin (to prevent breakouts) and panoxyl (benzoyl peroxide medication) to fade the dark spots left behind. they’re both prescription, but i believe the panoxyl cleanser is available over the counter.

i also use a face wash with salicylic acid. i tried a non-medicated face wash for a while, thinking since i was using topical medications, i didn’t really need it, but i do need it!

i hope that helps!

@Saloria83:  I have similar problems to you. Before my big day, I ate a good diet, drank lots of water and moisturised especially the dry bits

I like Purpose cleaner, it makes my skin feel great. Here are some tips that absolutely turned my skin around!


1. Diet. Eat lots of veggies and drink water. It will make a difference.

2. Retin-A. You can get it at the drugstore or you can get a prescription. This is the ONLY thing that has ever made my pores appear smaller and make blackheads on my nose disappear! It’s amazing. Make sure to follow all of the instructions though and wear sunblock every day.

3. Invest in a Clarisonic. I’ve never tried any of the cheaper face scrubbers, but the Clarisonic is totally worth the cost. Your face will feel smooth and it will glow. It also makes all your skin products work better.
