If you’ve always wanted a better-sculpted face, this is the best time to consult a dermatologist for it. However, you should do it at least three to four months before the marriage.

Wedding season is here again. To ensure you wake up with healthy skin that’s glowing with vitality on your big day, invest in a skincare plan as soon as possible.
This is a great time to consult a professional skin care expert and discuss your skin-care goals and bridal beauty plan. Just as dieting and exercising yields best results for weight loss, using the appropriate bridal beauty products together with the right skin treatments will yield the best results for your skin and help avoid last minute breakouts.
Two weeks before the big day, cut coffee, dairy, sugar, booze, and processed foods, and switch to a diet of salmon, organic lean meat, whole grains, fruit, veggies, and green tea.
this is a great time to consult a professional dermatologist. Tell them about your wedding date, and your skin-care goals. They may recommend treatments such as glycolic peels or regular facials that will help you have picture-perfect skin. Prescription medicine may also be helpful.
One month before the wedding: Dr. Deepti suggests a peel over a facial because the results are more controlled and predictable. Gentle chemical exfoliation with a peel refines pores and texture without the poking, prodding and squeezing that a facial can inflict, and with a peel, there are fewer added ingredients that can provoke an allergic reaction.
“You’re not going to do anything one week away that you haven’t tried six months out,” Dr. Levine says. That includes everything from the makeup, self-tanner and nail polish you use (make sure none of them give you a rash!) to facials and procedures you get at your derm’s office.
For example, lots of brides request fillers and Botox before their weddings, but Dr. Levine advises first-timers try the procedure well in advance. “It takes Botox three to four months to wear off, so the first time you do should be at least four months before your wedding,” in case you don’t like the results, she says. “When it’s done right it looks amazing, but it affects the way you smile sometimes. You have to get used to the feeling of” injectables, she says.
Diminish signs of sun damage.
Six months is plenty of time to do something about dark spots on your complexion. Dr. Levine suggests consulting your derm for a treatment plan now. Laser treatments or photofacials can help. “There are also topical products like pads and creams that help brighten your face,” she says.
Start a regimen for smoother skin.
All the makeup in the world can’t cover skin with an uneven texture, which “has to do with the dead skin that builds up everywhere on your body,” Dr. Levine explains. Get your complexion wedding-photo-ready by starting an exfoliation routine now. Your dermatologist can recommend glycolic acid pads or peels, or regular microdermabrasion treatments to help create a smooth canvas for your wedding makeup.
