get your skin red-carpet ready!

Your ultimate guide is here. 

So, you have a special day on the horizon and you are planning to look as good as possible is underway.

We all look for varying ways to look refreshed, glowing and achieve our red-carpet-ready skin for special occasions! There is a widely adopted view that on such occasions, you need to be most radiant and glowing version of yourself.

The ideal time to begin your skin preparation is not days or weeks before the big day, it is often recommended that you begin your journey to healthy, glowy skin months before your marked day. Anyone looking to switch around and upgrade their skincare routine should always remember that time is a key factor to consider.

Around 4-6 months before the event, you should start introducing new ingredients, products, and techniques to your skincare regime for the best results!

This is key as introducing too much too close to your day can become overwhelming to your skin and lead to a sensitised barrier in your skin. Take it slow, enjoy the process and give yourself time to truly experience the benefits of all your hard work (and coins…). 

WE have included a list of the best in-clinic treatments for smooth, plump, dewy skin for important events!

A course of monthly facials, peels, or needling treatments in the two to three months before can be incredibly beneficial.

Vitamin C is essential for producing collagen and elastin, which help keep the skin plump and firm. It can prevent premature ageing of the skin, restoring a smooth appearance to the skin. It can be a perfect ingredient to brighten your complexion, treat hyperpigmentation and hydrate your skin!  

So, what is the best Vitamin C product for you? Here are 2 recommendations!
ZO Skin Health 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating

Vitamin C is essential for maintaining beautiful, healthy skin. The 10% Vitamin C Serum from ZO Skin Health provides your skin a potent shot of pure Vitamin C that is stabilised, and helps to brighten and re-texture the skin. This water-free formula instantly self-activates upon contact with skin’s natural water content, maximising exfoliation and brightening effects to reveal radiant, even-toned skin.

AlumierMD Everactive Vitamin C&E Serum

EverActive® C&E from Alumier MD is a high-strength vitamin C (15% L-ascorbic acid) and vitamin E treatment serum that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, revitalising skin. The antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E, neutralise free radicals and protect against UV damage, while vitamin C and MATRIXYL™ Synthe’6™® strengthen and brighten your skin. The best addition for your big day!

Introducing retinol/retinoids in your skincare routine can have an immense effect on your skin’s appearance and health. Retinol works as anti-ageing treatment in three major ways. Its incredible formula reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, helps with sun damage, and gets rid of dark spots. However, it is always important to note that retinol and retinoid products can make you more susceptible to sun damage. Therefore, they should only be used at night, alongside a broad-spectrum sunscreen each morning. It is crucial that you look after your skin and protect it every day.  

Why not use ZO Skin Health Skin Brightener 0.5%?

A retinol-based solution clinically proven to rapidly improve the appearance of uneven skin tone for a brighter, clearer, and smoother complexion. Achieve healthy, glowing skin with the ZO Retinol Skin Brightener 0.5% serum!

We understand that sometimes spending a lot of time, effort and money before your big day is not always ideal. It is often discussed whether drinking a lot of water can really affect your skin’s quality and appearance.

Drinking enough water helps to make this possible! Dehydration leads to dry, tight, and flaky skin while drinking a good amount of water in your system will promote a soft, smooth and glowing complexion. In this way, you can treat your skin within.
