What can I do to look great for my wedding?

Hi Dr Irwin, I am 28 and getting married in 4 months. What do you suggest so my skin looks fabulous in time for the wedding? Also, some of my friends have told me I should start using the Clarisonic, what do you think about that? Thanks!

I love weddings!  I think it’s all that crazy dancing, all the relatives, beautiful dresses, etc.  Anyway, I’m guessing that your skin is pretty good since you didn’t mention acne or other problems.  If you have good skin already, then here’s a good plan.  3 months before a light to medium peel with an experienced aesthetician.  2 months before a microdermabrasion and then 2-3 weeks before the wedding another one.   A Clarisonic would be fine!  Also, don’t change any of your skin care products in the month before your wedding.  I’ve seen brides with awful allergic reactions to new products.  Stay with the ones that work for you already for the month before.    Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
