You have an event to go to next week. It may well have been in your diary for the last six months, but somehow these things just seem to creep up on you, and now you have 7 days to organise everything. Finding a red carpet‐worthy dress and the perfect heels might be high on your list of priorities, but adding skin prep to that list is an important step that many people overlook. If you need some help on how to prep your skin for a big event, here are some top tips:
Make use of AHAs
If your skin is looking a little dull, and you want to brighten it up in time for a big event, then alpha hydroxy acids (or AHAs) could be your ingredient of choice. Glycolic acid is one of the more commonly‐found AHAs in skincare products. By exfoliating the top layers of dead skin cells, glycolic acid helps to reveal newer, healthier‐looking skin. Incorporate AHAs into your skincare routine with a face wash, mask or scrub.
