The hours leading up to an event, party, or celebration are typically filled with a wide range of emotions, and in order to exude confidence all event-long, mindful preparation is key. A little intentional self care goes a long way for your skin and soul! The secret to achieving a red carpet-ready look lies not only in skillful application of makeup but also in a well-prepped canvas. To ensure you’re in optimal condition both inside and out on your big day, it's important to follow a pre-event skincare routine that focuses on nourishment and rejuvenation. In this blog post, we'll explore Pritika’s expert tips to prepare for a memorable event using Prakti Beauty.
The Night Before
Step 1: Nourish Skin From the Inside Out!
A radiant, all-day glow begins from within. The day before your big event, be sure to drink 3-4 liters of water, eat a nutritious meal, and aim for 8 hours of restful sleep.
Step 2: Exfoliate With PritiPolish™ Instant Glow Exfoliator
Exfoliating skin the night before is crucial to remove dead skin cells and to wake up with a smoother, more radiant complexion. PritiPolish™ brightens skin after just one use and is gentle enough to use the night before your event and the day-of. Using Ayurvedic Oryza Sativa Rice milled to a fine, delicate powder, combined with Pomegranate Enzyme (AHA), this natural exfoliator unglues dry skin and debris to create the perfect, poreless base for makeup.
On The Day of Your Event
Step 3: Cleanse & Prep Your Canvas
Have you heard the phrase, “clear your space, clear your mind?” It absolutely applies to event preparation! Beginning your day with a clear, balanced mind and beginning your skincare routine with a cleansed and detoxified base is the ultimate first step toward success on event day. DeviDetox™ Purifying Facial Cleanser goes well beyond cleansing to gently rid skin of daily dirt and oil while creating an uplifting, divine experience that sets the foundation for all that’s ahead. Squeeze a dime-sized amount of cleanser into damp hands and work into a rich lather. Massage onto skin and neck while breathing deeply and setting a positive intention for your day. Jasmine Flower Extract provides an intoxicating aroma that will leave you feeling balanced and at ease while a blend of technologically advanced ingredients purify and hydrate skin to create the perfect cleansed base.
Step 4: Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!
Hydration is essential for plump, healthy-looking skin. On the morning of your event, indulging in a hydrating mask will allow your skin to remain hydrated all day long and ensure all makeup applies smoothly. This is how you’ll achieve that glowy, lit-from-within radiance in photos! Apply a generous amount of MahaMask™ Pampering Moisture Treatment to clean skin with circular, upward motions. Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Be extra mindful of under-eyes and dry patches!
Priti Tip: Once you’ve applied MahaMask™ , the next 10-15 minutes are a great opportunity to incorporate 2-1 Breathing to combat any pre-event nerves and to find balance on your big day!
Step 5: Lock In That Fearless Glow
Now that your skin is plump and soothed, it’s time to prime. A hydrating serum creates the perfect base for makeup by allowing powerful ingredients to deeply penetrate the skin’s surface, resulting in an irresistible glow and your makeup in place all day long. SundaSkin™ The Essential Hydrating Serum is formulated with the ultimate trifecta of White Snow Mushroom, Patchouli Oil, and Niacinamide to deeply hydrate and lock in moisture, dramatically improving elasticity and firmness. Take ½ a dropperful and squeeze into the palm of your hand and apply to clean skin. Follow with your favorite moisturizer to enhance and lock in all of your serum’s benefits and you’re ready for makeup.
These tips will help you look and feel your best at your big event, but remember: self-care shouldn’t only be saved for special occasions! Prioritizing your health and well-being is the ultimate prep for anything the future holds. When you make time for intentional self care, you’re sure to enter every room with a fearless glow.
