Expert tips for prom-ready skin

Although wardrobe, hair and accessories are important considerations for prom preparations, teenagers should not disregard a healthy skin care regimen, which can ensure they look their best in the scores of professional and candid shots snapped and chatted about over the course of prom festivities. Even with the bevy of photo filters and social media apps that can hide blemishes and other minor photo faux pas, it helps to have healthy and beautiful skin. Here's how to achieve great results.

Determine skin type

Selecting the right products involves understanding the type of skin on your face and body. If you are prone to shiny spots or makeup tends to slide off after a few hours, you likely have oily skin. Red patches and flakes may be indicative of dry skin. Many people fall in between, where areas on their cheeks may be dry and spots in the T-zone are oily.
If you are unsure about your skin type, consult with a dermatologist or an esthetician at a beauty counter or cosmetics store.

Develop a customized regimen

Dr. Michael Kaminer of Skincare.com says establishing and sticking to a skin care routine can help to gradually clear up skin with noticeable results. Healthy skin is not something that happens overnight. Part of a generalized skin regimen includes washing off makeup each night, cleansing skin, exfoliating to slough off dead skin cells, and moisturizing. Sun protection is a daily must whether it is sunny outside or not. Exposure to ultraviolet rays can lead to premature wrinkling and skin cancer and can cause other skin ailments to flare up.

Eat healthier

Living off of junk food is not a great  way to achieve a healthy body, and such diets can adversely affect skin as well. A month or two before prom, start getting serious about what you eat. A-list facialists for the stars suggest increasing daily doses of fruits and vegetables, which help regulate the digestive system and may help clear toxins out of the body. Minimally processed foods contain fewer preservatives and chemicals, and that might translate into fewer skin or food allergies as well.

Address other body areas

The skin is the largest organ of the body, and facial skin is not the only area that will be photographed come prom. Teens who plan to wear strapless or backless dresses or those who will be showing off their arms will want to address breakouts, psoriasis, eczema, or other conditions that can affect skin all over the body. It's best to start new treatment methods several weeks before prom to ensure there are no adverse reactions. A dermatologist or general practitioner can help you determine which products might be right for certain skin ailments.

Get ample rest

Devote time to getting the rest needed prior to prom and graduation. Adequate sleep can lead to vibrant skin tone and vitality.
Being prom-ready involves taking care of your skin. That involves rest, hydration, a healthy diet, and a customized skin care regimen.
