It’s every hostess or bride’s nightmare – waking up on the day of the event and noticing a new blemish just hours before it starts! Skincare experts and hair care professionals have seen it all, so we’re sharing some of the best recommendations for overcoming skin and hair emergencies at your special occasion.


1. Unexpected Zits

Reduce inflammation by placing ice on the problem area. The cold temperature will decrease redness and control swelling. Keep a spot treatment or cortisone cream handy just in case you’re strapped for time. Despite the urge that may arise to pick at the blemish, do your best to resist all temptation! The last thing you want to do is make the situation worse by making it even harder to conceal so play it safe and don’t pick! Be sure to consult with a skin care


2. Dry or Flaky Skin

Your big day should also be one of your best makeup days. We all know makeup and dry skin don’t complement each other. If you’re hoping to achieve an airbrushed look, remember to gently exfoliate your skin prior to a cosmetic application. This will rid your skin of flaky cells on the surface. Reserve a deep exfoliating facial 3 weeks before your wedding to help boost your natural glow!


3. Perspiring Off Your Makeup

Sometimes the weather outside can get downright hot and humid! Keep a pressed powder close by should you need a touch-up throughout the day. Apply the powder directly down the line of your tear tracks and blend in with a beauty sponge or preferred tool. Have a makeup expert do a test run of your complete makeup look before the day of the event. Be sure to take pictures and have them recreate that look on the day of your wedding. Want flawless makeup all day long? Book them for the entire day!


4. Puffy Eyes

A gel eye mask will help calm puffy eyes, however if you find yourself without one you can always place two spoons in the freezer for 15 minutes. Use the rounded side on your eyelids and under your eyes for 5-10 minutes to reduce

puffiness. The cold temperature will constrict blood and lymph vessels. Eliminate puffy eyes by establishing a set sleep schedule at least two weeks prior to your wedding. You’ll want to ensure you’re getting eight hours of sleep each night.


5. Sunburn

The first mistake was not using enough sun protection! If you’re in a lot of pain, take some ibuprofen to help alleviate your discomfort. Take a cool bath and reduce swelling by using a cool compress and apply a soothing aloe cream. If your dress is strapless, try to remember to wear strapless tops while in the sun to eliminate any likelihood of unwanted tan lines. If the damage is already done, use a moisturizer with a green or yellow tint to help minimize redness. You should always call your esthetician for the best advice. Use Sun Protection spray for your hair and it will help your color last longer and prevent it from fading.


6. Allergic Reaction

Use an all-natural moisturizer for sensitive skin twice a day and take Benadryl at night. You can also try whole milk compresses for 10 minutes 2x a day. Hydrocortisone cream and a tinted moisturizer are life savers to have on hand should the reaction happen on your wedding day. Cover up the redness entirely with the cream and apply the moisturizer to add some hydration.


7. Frizzy Unruly Hair

Having dry hair along with the effects of heat and humidity can make it look frizzy and untamed. If you want smooth, silky, shiny hair on your wedding day, be sure to stop by Karen Brown for a Keratin Treatment and experience their Event Styling services!


We highly recommend having a skin care expert as well as a hair care professional on call the morning of your big day. As a backup, it’s always a smart idea to keep an Emergency Kit handy for yourself or a friend. Share these tips with the soon-to-be bride in your life, it could just save her big day!
