Are you preparing for an upcoming special occasion? As we watch celebrities float down the red carpet during awards season, we can’t help but think about the big events in our own lives that require us to go a little extra glam. Whether you’re attending a wedding or a major party, we recommend beauty and wellness tips that can help you up the wow factor, so you’ll be able to reveal your best self yet.

The first step in achieving the best version of you is to evaluate what you want to work on before the big event. In addition to getting Botox, fillers and even minor surgery such as an eyelid lift, lower blepharoplasty, and neck liposuction, there are several other procedures that are routine, low risk and yield fantastic results.

I find that my patients usually want to have that red carpet glow along with a refreshed look. Patients will say to me, “I want to look amazing for this occa- sion and feel vibrant, healthy and fit and I want to reflect that internally and externally”. Below are some tips to ensure that your skin is beautiful, relaxed and reveals a radiant glow:

Hydrate and Nourish

Drink Water. It’s not quite groundbreaking, but it’s the truth, your skin is most clear and radiant when you are properly hydrated. Your skin cells require water to work effectively, so drink six to ten 8 oz. servings of water a day and you’ll see plumper, more elastic and smoother skin. Adding an herbal tincture to your water is also very helpful. You can find products and herbalists to work with you on which herbs are right for you. At our spa we use our Burdock Radiant Skin Tincture. Herbal tinctures are rich in cleansing and purifying herbs to promote a clearer complexion.

Schedule a Facial

Give yourself some time to work with your aesthetician to help prepare your skin for your big event. Schedule a facial two to 12 weeks before the event. During a facial, your aesthetician can give you deeper cleansing and exfoliation. Your skin may be treated with extra-strength peels and serums to help address wrinkles or skin discoloration. I recommend holistic facials because they are centered on total health and healing and are customized down to the last detail. Holistic facials encourage renewal by rebuilding the foundations of wellness. Organic products specifically infuse the skin with herbs, vitamins, minerals, and clinical grade essential oils to purify, balance and holistically restore a healthful glow. In addition, holistic facials incorporate precise massage, which encourages the cleansing of skin’s tissues and beautifully re-contours the face as fine lines are smoothed and soothed.

So always remember, with a little time and advance planning, you can float down the red carpet for your big event with same glow as a celebrity.
