4 Simple Ways to Prep Your Skin for Prom

prom ready skin

With prom season upon us, beautiful skin is becoming a concern of many who are planning to attend. Although great skin is something that happens as a result of consistent care and attention, there are some things you can do to get your skin prom ready. 

TAKE CARE OF YOUR MENTAL & PHYSICAL HEALTH

Nothing will beat the radiance of skin that is the result of taking care of your mental and physical health. Skin often shows the cumulative effects of how we treat ourselves. Be it good, or bad. Here are some quick tips that will help you take the best care of yourself from the inside out.

-Get enough sleep

On average, 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night is optimal. This allows the body time to completely rejuvenate itself and be ready for the day ahead.

-Control your stress levels

Stress will often show itself in your skin. Breakouts, rashes and other skin flare ups can be a direct result of stress. Use methods of stress relief that work for your lifestyle to keep it to a minimum.

-Wear sunscreen

This is a tried and true tip. Sunscreen is important to prevent the damage that sun exposure can cause. It is easy and convenient to wear sunscreen in today’s busy world. Take the few moments to do so.

EAT SKIN FRIENDLY FOODS

Our skin will thrive under the right conditions. The phrase, you are what you eat, sounds cliché, but it is very true. There are skin friendly foods which supply hydration and nutrients to your skin. Some of those foods are yogurt; salmon; berries; and kiwi.

Yogurt contains vitamin A, which helps the body produce collagen. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s elasticity.

Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids. These acids have been found to fight the damaging effects of over exposure to the ultra violet radiation that results from too much sun.

Berries of all varieties are good for your skin. Berries replenish depleted levels of antioxidants in the skin. They are also packed with nutrients which aid in the destruction of free radicals produced by ultraviolet radiation.

Kiwi contains vitamin C, similar to oranges and other citrus fruits. Vitamin C is an essential part of any diet, but especially a diet that is geared toward beautiful skin for prom. Vitamin C helps to maintain the connective tissue in the body. The connective tissue, much like collagen, helps to maintain the skin’s plumpness and elasticity.

GET A SPRAY TAN AND FACIAL

To avoid some of the harmful effects of direct exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, get a spray tan. Prom season will be even more enjoyable when your skin is healthy and glowing. A spray tan will provide the even tone and radiant appearance to your face and body. It is a treat that is appropriate for the occasion.
A facial is also a treat that will make your prom season better. Facials will aid in achieving and maintaining beautiful, smooth skin for the big night.

CONSULT AN ESTHETICIAN

An esthetician can work with you to assess your skin and decide on a plan of action that is safe and that will yield results. Finding a qualified esthetician can be challenging. Pureskin Salon is ready to help get your skin in its best shape for prom this year.
