How to Prep Your Skin for a Big Event
by Truly Beauty

When there’s a big event on the horizon, especially a last minute one, having glowing, beautiful skin is probably at the top of your agenda. 

If you're running out of time and can't sneak away to the spa, the best thing you can do is turn to your beauty cabinet for results. 

For radiant skin in a flash, try these skincare tips to prep your complexion for the big day. Gorgeous skin is on the way!

Add an AHA into Your Skincare Routine

Is your skin looking a little dull and depleted these days? Change that by adding an AHA-formulated cleanser, toner, or serum into your daily skincare regimen. 

AHAs, aka: alpha hydroxy acids, are exfoliating acids that dissolve dead skin cells from the surface of your skin to clear pores, prevent breakouts, and resurface dull, uneven skin tone. Some good example of AHAs include glycolic acid and lactic acid. 

Glycolic acid is one of the favorites. Its exfoliating abilities removes top layers of skin, stimulating new collagen growth and enhanced elastin. With its small molecular structure, glycolic acid is able to penetrate the skin easily and deeply. As a result, it is highly effective for treating fine lines, blackheads, blemishes, dull skin, and uneven skin texture. Immediately after use, skin will look brighter and more even. 

Try Truly's CBD Jelly Toning Solution to cleanse away impurities, calm irritation, and even out texture.



Slather on Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C can do a lot for your skin.

For starters, it promotes collagen production which can help diminish fine lines and promote glowing, youthful skin. Alongside that, vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it can shield the skin cells from free radicals caused by pollution and UV exposure. Best of all, it's well-known for its skin brightening effects. 

In other words, applying a vitamin C serum daily as part of your regimen can quickly restore your skin's radiance while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. 

The Truly Vegan Collagen Booster Facial Serum effortlessly glides onto skin to boost your glow. Apply it every evening after cleansing and before moisturizing.


Treat Those Puffy Eyes

Be a bright-eyed beauty for your big event by treating those tired eyes of yours with a hydrating, anti-inflammatory eye cream. Of course, you can get by with a good concealer, but revived eyes starts with good beauty products -- and habits.

Truly's Eye Candy Anti-Puff Eye Cream uses hyaluronic acid and sea kelp to help fade dark circles and inflammation while retaining moisture in the skin.


Put on a Face Mask

Get ready for your big event by treating your skin to a hydrating, brightening face mask. It's a quick way to inject your skin with nutrients to perk up your complexion and make sure your skin looks fabulous on the day.

Truly's Vegan Collagen Booster Face Mask is an excellent choice for individuals seeking out a hydrating, anti-aging face mask, as it is formulated with retinol. If your skin is super dry and in need of intense hydration alone, try placing a moisture filled sheet mask over your face to quench its thirst.



Tackle Any Last Minute Breakouts with Pimple Patches

Breakouts always seem to happen at the worst possible times. Luckily, there is something you can do the next time an angry red pimple raises its head: stick a pimple patch over it.

Pimple patches, or acne patches, work by draining active zits of fluid to speed up healing and prevent you from touching or picking your spots. They're usually formulated with hydrocolloid which does the draining and other acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Grab yourself Truly's Super Acne Trio. They come in three different shapes: heart, stars, and hemp leaves. And each is made with a unique formulation aimed at tackling and healing blemishes


Layer on the Lotion 

Both your face and body require moisturizing skincare products to look their best. Invest in a quality face and body moisturiser to ensure your skin is getting all the hydration it needs to look its best, glowing self on the big day.


Look for products formulated with high-performing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides. You will find hyaluronic acid in Truly's Cream Skin Face Cream. Don't forget your body, either. Truly's Body Star Perfecting Cream is a good pick for keeping your limbs soft, smooth, and silky all day long.



Get a Faux Glow

The quickest way to glowing skin? Self-tan!

While conventional tanning may be a no-no, it's very safe to use self-tanning products to achieve similar results, only without the cost of damaging your skin. 

Truly's Hotter in Person Bronze & Blur Cream is a silky body cream formulated with hydrating argan oil, brightening strawberry, soothing green tea, naturally bronzing DHA, and flecks of gold shimmer to boost your radiance from head to toe.

For best results, apply this tanning cream before going to bed to allow it to develop evenly as you sleep. One layer of even application later ... a subtle, sun-kissed glow.


Keep Protecting Your Skin

While it's not going to provide immediate visible results for your big day, wearing sunscreen daily is crucial for keeping your complexion young, smooth, and safe. Spending time in the sun without sunscreen can lead to photoaging such as fine lines and discoloration. The best way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Slather on the SPF!

Invest in a quality broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to keep your skin protected and looking as beautiful as ever. Not only will it contribute to radiant skin on the day of your event, but it will also contribute to a lifetime of gorgeous skin!


Prepping your skin for a big event doesn't need to be hard nor stressful. Armed with a few skincare essentials, you can quickly get your skin in tip-top shape so that it looks utterly radiant on the day of the event.

Now that your complexion's looking acne, get ready for some stunning photography. Your skin will have seriously never looked better!
