- Wedding: April 2011
After a lifetime of doing little more than washing my face with a hot washcloth, I put more energy into fixing my skin, I think, than worrying about hair or make-up. I just really wasn’t liking how my skin has been changing in the last couple of years. I have to say, that it’s been the best present that I’ve given to myself, too. No one would confuse me for a 20 year old, but I think my complexion is so much better than it was 6 months ago.
I’m not sure if it’s one of the things that I did or the combo…
…IPL (4 treatments) to get rid of broken red capillaries and fade age spots. (It got rid of 90% of the stuff that bothered me.)
…botox (Although I got it > 3 months ago, and it will be mostly warn off by the wedding. I was scared to do it too close and have a bad result that made me look rigid/bizarre).
…Renova (like Retin-A…I think this was the miracle treatment)
…Regular washing w/ products containing glycolic acid.
…Two light (20% Salicylic acid) peels.
…Acyclovir, so I don’t sprout a cold sore the day before the wedding from the stress.
