Tip # 1 A healthier way to get glowing skin for prom is to use spray tans (as long as you don’t have asthma) or topical self-tanning agents like Neutrogena Micromist. Tanning increases your risk of melanoma by 75% and age your skin significantly.
Tip #2 If you have acne you can get a facial one week before prom. If you do not have acne, you may get one three days before.
Tip # 3 If you get a pimple the day of prom, and it is a cyst, see if your dermatologist can squeeze you in for a cyst injection. If that is not an option, heap on topical acne medication and let it sink in. Then, put your best concealer over the medication. Do not pick it and definitely don’t pop it. This can lead to a scar.
Tip # 4 Try this skincare regimen leading up to prom. Use a gentle cleanser 2-3 times a day try Neutrogena Ultra-Gentle Cleanser. Use sunscreen with SPF30 everyday try The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch. Moisturize your face and body with Aveeno Eczema Relief For The Body. Also don’t forget to have tons of water, rest, and exercise!
Tip # 5 Wax your brow and facial hair at least one week before. If you have never waxed, start after your prom! Make sure whoever is waxing you checks the temperature of the hot wax on their wrist (or yours) before they put it on your face.

It's important to start early with a good face/skin regimen to help ensure good skin on your special night. You might want to try the following daily routine:
