All brides-to-be want to look beautiful on their wedding, but all the beauty procedures should be done in a timely manner, beforehand, and not lead to unpleasant consequences. In particular, it is advisable to avoid certain procedures on the eve of the important event, according to HuffPost.

Potential issues

Dermatologist Den Mraz Robinson explained that if you want to try something new, it's worth doing it in advance to see how your skin reacts. However, not right before a significant event.

"Don’t try anything new within a month before your wedding! This could turn into a disaster," the expert advised.

According to the dermatologist, she has had to "rescue" girls who were harmed by some aggressive treatments on the eve of their big day. There is always a risk of burns, bruises, swelling, and even broken capillaries during certain procedures, especially when done for the first time.

As the wedding approaches, the skin may become more tense, as stress forces the body to produce cortisol and adrenaline.

"These hormones can set off an inflammatory response in the body, including the skin, that make your skin more reactive, sensitive and irritated. It’s not a good time to try something new," said Mraz Robinson.

What to be cautious about

Fillers and neurotoxins like Botox should be done at two to three months and four to six weeks in advance, as it needs time to settle and for you to be able to tweak them if needed.

Lip augmentation involves injecting fluid with a needle, so swelling and small bruises may appear. They will last for 7 days, so girls should not undergo this procedure before the wedding. Everything should be kept under control, and in case of any discomfort, consult a specialist.

Chemical peels can cause redness, swelling, inflammation, and peeling, so time is needed for recovery.

A week before the wedding, also avoid sunbaths or tanning beds. This can cause sunburn, spots, and redness of the skin.

Facial waxing should be done at least one to two weeks before to see the skin's reaction. Moreover, it can cause irritation and redness.

The dermatologist advised that a week before the wedding, you can:

  • Wax eyebrow correction
  • Follow a daily morning and evening skincare routine
  • Drink plenty of water and eat healthy, nutritious food.
