Are you excited for your upcoming special occasion, but worried about how you’ll look on the big day? We’ve got you covered with our top pre-event beauty tips. From de-puffing to keeping your skin dewy and plump, here’s everything you need to know to put your best face forward.
Facial puffiness can be caused by a variety of factors, such as stress, lack of sleep, allergies, or water retention. Luckily, there are ways to reduce facial puffiness fast. Some effective remedies include applying a cold compress, using green tea bags or cucumber slices on your eyes, and sleeping with an extra pillow to elevate your head and promote drainage. Check out our complete guide on reducing facial puffiness fast.
If you’re looking to enhance your pre-event beauty routine, consider trying gua sha or lymphatic drainage massage. Gua sha is a traditional Chinese technique that involves gently scraping a flat tool over the skin to promote circulation and lymphatic drainage. This can help to reduce facial puffiness, improve skin tone and texture, and give your face a more sculpted appearance. Lymphatic drainage massage is another technique that can help to reduce facial puffiness and promote lymphatic flow.
For plump and dewy skin, hyaluronic acid is a must-have in your pre-event beauty routine. Hyaluronic acid is a natural molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it an effective moisturizer for all skin types. It can help to improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and give your skin a healthy, youthful glow. Learn how best to incorporate hyaluronic acid in our comprehensive guide on hyaluronic acid here.
Exfoliation is an essential part of any pre-event beauty routine, but it’s important to choose the right type of exfoliant for your skin type. For sensitive skin, it’s wise to avoid physical and chemical exfoliants right before a big event to avoid any redness, dryness, or irritation. Instead, opt for a gentle cleansing routine that includes a mild exfoliant at least 24 hours before the event. For normal to oily skin, chemical exfoliants like alpha and beta hydroxy acids can be effective at removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover.
Looking to give your pre-event beauty the ultimate boost? Read below for the best aesthetic treatments (with no downtime after!) to prep for an event.
Collagen and elastin are two essential building blocks for having firm, youthful skin. Venus Legacy™ and Venus Versa™ use radio frequency energy to effectively boost collagen and elastin production as both a restorative and preventative measure against the signs of aging. Non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments and skin tightening treatments address fine lines and deep wrinkles, at the same time improving skin laxity, sagging, and loss of elasticity. Both of these comfortable, no-downtime treatments visibly restore tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin. Many notice an immediately re-invigorate and tightened complexion, and best of all, there's no downtime so they can be done before an event.
A deep cleaning treatment that also restores skin’s beautiful glow, Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments flush out pores and pull dirt, excess oil, and impurities from below the skin’s surface, resulting in a more radiant, refreshed complexion. The micro-massaging tip then stimulates nutrients to spread through the derma layer and restore nourishment to tired, stressed skin. It’s a fast, safe, and effective way to leave skin feeling noticeably healthier and more hydrated.
With these pre-event beauty tips in mind, you’ll be ready to put your best face forward and shine on your special day. Remember, self-care and self-confidence go hand in hand, so take the time to treat yourself and feel your best.
