Hey Bees! I’ve only had my eyebrows waxed once, and it healed fast. I’m wondering though, should I have my facial for the wedding done before, or after the wax? Here’s the week of schedule: ( I know – I’m a control freak )
Monday – get facial??
Tuesday – wax lips, eye brows, chin
Wednesday – get facial??
Thursday – Massage
Friday – Nails
Saturday – Wedding
So when should I do the facial? Thanks! ( I know – this post is rediculously shallow =)

@Rhapsody: If you have never had a facial before you want to go earlier. Facials can bring lots of dirt to the surface which means you may have a small breakout in the days following the facial. But your skin will look so much better after that.
I had my “pre-wedding” facial on Tuesday and my wedding isn’t until a week from Saturday.

I’ve posted about this before, but do NOT, do NOT get a facial the week of your wedding. I don’t know if you’ve had one before but most people break out after getting a facial and need about 3-4 weeks to have their skin back to normal.
While this is completely normal as it is ridding your skin of a lot of toxins, I would never suggest getting one the week of your wedding.
As for the wax, you’re fine getting it tuesday.

Estheticians are certified in waxing so why don’t you get it done on the same day? They’d be able to recommend doing it before or after the facial and would be able to help with any waxing reactions. It would save you time!

Whew thanks! I had a facial a looooong time ago, and remember breaking out right after but I wasn’t sure if it was the facial, or stress from grad school. Thanks! I’ll certainly do it earlier!

My beauty shcedule is as follows:
Today: Facial and Mani
Next Friday (9/23): Hair Color
Thursday before wedding (9/29) Mani/Pedi
Friday before wedding: eyebrow touch up (just had them done 9/10)
I had my first facial 1 month ago, had a small breakout after so I wanted to be extra safe!

I second PP’s responses that you should do the facial at least two weeks prior to the wedding, if it isn’t something you do on a regular basis. I actually just asked this question about the waxing/facial order of my waxer. I have been getting facials every 3 weeks all summer, so I am getting a plumping/brightening facial the Wed before my wedding. I am also getting my eyebrows done that day. My waxer told me to do the facial first, the pores will be open, and the waxing will then be less stressful on the skin.

I have only done facialing thrice in my life so far and that too all 3 during last year because it was only then that I started having lots of pimples. I never used to have before any face problems other than facial hair. But now as wedding is next month I’m wondering as to do facialing or not. I make natural home made face packs, steam my face and scrub it once in a while and am doing all natural facial treatments since past 3 months along with drinking lots of water. The number of new breakouts has decreased considerably but I’m confused as to do salon facials before the wedding or just stick to my own natural home regimes. Can someone help me please with this?
