It sure has been a year of big celebrity weddings with Emily Didonato - Kyle Petersone, Hilary Swank - Philip Schneider, and Denise Richards - Aaron Phypers uniting in wedlock.

Every bride dreams of her wedding day long before it actually happens.  She hopes to look her very  best, yet the wedding preparations and family commitments might cause havoc, and she might break out into acne days before or may even have other skin woes, but a lot can be done by a dermatologist to make her look her stunning best. Millennial brides-to-be are aware that a lot can be done to fix skin and hair and thus start their skin care. Those who do not have as much time to invest in regular skin care treatments can try these 10 quick fixes:

1) Acne cyst reduction: Wedding preparations can lead to stress, lack of proper diet and exercise and could lead to sudden acne eruptions and bigger acne cysts on the face. A quick anti-inflammatory injection into that acne cyst could make life  easier, and reduce the cyst within a few days.

2) Insta peel glow: There are various peels like glycolic acid, salicylic acid and lactic acid peels done by a dermatologist, days before the wedding to get that glowing, radiant and smooth skin.

3) Diamond tip exfoliation: If the sound of a ‘chemical peel’ freaks someone out then something as simple as a diamond microdermabrasion can be done to smoothen out the skin and give it a more soft and supple appearance

4) Bridal glow: Botulinium Toxin or BOTOX is not just for fixing those lines and wrinkles but it can also be used in diluted concentration as  mesobotox  to make the skin appear more tout and reduce those open pores and help give a bridal glow just a few days before the wedding day.

5) Brow lift: Brides wanting to perfect their game and look more relaxed and prettier  could have botulinium toxin injected to lift their eye brows.

6) Plumper lips: One dosen’t need to take the help of only the makeup artist to make their lips looks more fuller and pouty when it can be done with the help of dermal fillers. It’s a quick 15 minute procedure that can help make the lips look more sensual and hydrated.

7) Non surgical nose job: For those brides-to-be who have a flat nose or a hump,  the shape can be well corrected within a matter of few minutes by using hyaluronic acid fillers.

8) Dark circle correction: For brides suffering from excessive under eye hollowness try filling the tear through deficit with the help of dermal fillers and make them look more refreshed.

9) Photo facial glow:  Intense pulsed light or Photofacial can help in reducing sun damage and help reduce those brown spots and give a much more glowing skin just before the D DAY.

10) Sweat control: Dancing in those tight cholis and those tight gowns during the wedding functions may lead to excessive sweating and staining of the armpit area which could lead to a lot of embarrassment but this can be easily fixed by injecting Botulinium toxin in the armpit area.
