There’s a lot of things to think about when you’re preparing for your prom. From makeup and hair to taking a date and so much more.
If you’ve picked your amazing dress from the prom dresses 2016 on offer, booked your hair appointment and asked your beau to accompany you, you may just find this checklist handy when getting ready for the big night.
1. The Hair
To make sure your locks are shiny and healthy on prom night, treat your tresses to a hair mask or repair treatment the night before the prom. Then one you’ve used shampoo and conditioner for your hair on prom night, finish with a cold water rinse. It might be a little uncomfortable for a few seconds and chances are you’ll give a little squeal, but a cold water spritz helps the hair cuticles to tightly close, enhancing shine and smoothness.
2. The Face
Everyone gets spots. But you can try to minimize yours as much as possible pre-prom. Treat yourself to an at-home facial the night before to help open up and clean out your pores. Begin by cleansing the face with cleansing pads or cotton wool that will grab all the makeup and dirt trapped in your pores. Then exfoliate the skin using a facial exfoliating glove. Make small circles, slowly all around your face.
The next step is to steam and open up the pores. If you happen to have a clothing steamer, simply hold it a few feet away from your face and hold for about 10 minutes. If you don’t own a steamer, all is not lost. Lay a face cloth in hot water for a few minutes and then place it over your face. Close your eyes and relax as your pores open up.
Finally, finish off your home facial with a face mask. Just as you’ve chosen prom dresses 2016 for your body type, be sure to choose a mask for your skin type. When time’s up, rinse with warm water and complete the facial with moisturizer.
Doing a face mask the night before prom will ensure you’re glowing on your special night.
3. The Teeth
If you think your teeth have lost their sparkle, consider an at-home whitening the night before prom. There are a range of products on the market that will whiten and brighten your pearly whites with no fuss at all.
4. The Hands
Nothing completes prom dresses 2016 like a stunning corsage. And no doubt you can’t wait to show yours off. So you’ll want to make sure that your hands and nails are looking tip top. You can save money by skipping a nail salon and giving yourself a manicure the night before prom. Start practicing about a week before to get a steady hand and style you like.
5. The Feet
Don’t neglect your heels and toes, especially if you’ll be sporting sexy open-toe sling- backs. The night before prom, start breaking in the shoes so you don’t have to deal with nasty blisters when you’re on the dance floor.
Then, the night before prom, exfoliate the soles of your feet and heels with a specially designed pedicure stone. Follow that with a pumice stone over rough spots and callouses to really smooth out your feel. Finally, use a foot mask or creamy moisturizer and then paint your toe nails. If you’re going to be wearing open-toe heels or peep-toe shoes, go for a bright nail polish to really finish off the look.
