Woke up and found a huge zit just days before your grand march down the aisle? It happens to the best of us. It’s always good to be prepared for any last minute skincare emergencies, and we’re here to help with that!

Potential Emergency #1: A Huge Zit
If a huge pimple appears a couple of days before your wedding, don’t fret! You can always opt for an intralesional corticosteroid injection, which can reduce the acne size and inflammation relatively quickly. If you’re prone to severe acne, it might be useful to schedule an emergency appointment with your aesthetic doctor in advance, just in case. But remember: under all circumstances, don't squeeze that zit!


Acne & Acne Scar Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


If the pimple is relatively mild, there’s no need to resort to such an extreme option. Instead, wash your face with a gentle acne cleanser. Follow by applying an acne spot cream before getting your makeup artist to work her magic with concealer.

For more information on the acne treatments we offer, head here.


Potential Emergency #2: Red Splotchy Skin
Reddish skin patches can be caused by a number of factors:

If they are caused by an allergy, topical creams and oral medications can help to reduce redness. For more severe cases, an allergy shot might be needed on top of topical and oral medications.

If the red patches are caused by a heat rash, apply a cooling compress or our in-house cream that minimises redness and itchiness to the affected area. Be sure to avoid oil-based cosmetics or creams, as these could clog your sweat glands, further worsening your heat rash.


Potential Emergency #3: Puffy Eyes
Puffy eyes can be caused by water retention or lack of sleep.


Eye Facial Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Simple home remedies involve applying something cooling to the eye area, such as an eye mask, cucumber slices, or even the back of a chilled spoon! This helps to constrict blood and lymph vessels, which in turn reduces the swelling.

For something more targeted, we offer eye facial treatments that help to reduce puffiness and tighten skin around the eye area. Best of all, these treatments are relaxing and have no downtime!

A diet high in salt and alcohol intake can also cause puffy eyes and bloatedness, so it’s best to cut down on salt and booze at least a week before your big day. Try to cut down your water intake 3 hours before bedtime too. For a more detailed guide on how to prep your skin for your big day, click here.

If you’re looking to prep your skin for your big day, we offer brightening facials and laser treatments to treat any skin concerns you may have.

Mothers of Brides/Grooms: The Ultimate Beauty Game Plan

Mothers of brides/grooms! It’s technically your child’s big day, but it’s definitely a major moment for you too. We think mums need some pre-wedding pampering too, and what better excuse than your child’s wedding to finally fix that nagging skincare concern?

As always, how high or low-maintenance you want to be is entirely up to you – the focus is still ensuring your child has a special, unforgettable day! But if you want to go all in, or if you are just looking for some rough guidelines, we’ve got your back.

We’ve prepared a comprehensive beauty timeline: how to fix any skincare concerns you might have and when to schedule it:


5-6 MONTHS BEFORE:

Pigmentation & Other Blemishes
If you have any pigmentation blemishes, such as freckles, age spots or melasma, that you’d like to get rid of before the wedding, it’s best to get it treated early. Stubborn pigmentation can be treated by laser treatments, which take a while due to necessary intervals in between treatment sessions.

Laser treatments are well tolerated by most patients, and have the side effect of boosting collagen production while reducing the appearance of fine lines – a great way of rejuvenating your skin while remaining non-invasive with no downtime!

Pigmentation Treatments for Mothers of Brides/Grooms | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Dark Eye Circles
As with pigmentation, stubborn dark eye circles should be treated early as well. Dark eye circles can be treated with eye laser treatments – our signature laser treatment reduces dark pigment and manages the appearance of blood vessels, both of which can be causes of your dark eye circles.

Our eye facials are also specially formulated for dark eye circles – this involves an infusion of serums into the undereye area with specialised machines, helping to brighten and lighten dark circles!

Exercise
Start an exercise regimen and stick to it, as a way of toning up before your child’s big day. Pilates and yoga are great exercises that help to tone up your body while going gentle on the joints. Going for a morning hike is a great way to get some cardio exercise, and if you go with your child, that makes for a great bonding time too!


Facials for Radiant Skin
You’d most likely want to have glowing, radiant skin for your child’s big day. Our Radiance or Rejuvenation facials are great for achieving just that – mild enzyme peels help to speed up cellular turnover, brightening your skin while treating sun damage, fine lines or dehydrated skin.

Facial Treatments for Mothers of Brides/Grooms | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Microdermabrasion and hydradermabrasion are great for exfoliating dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new skin, giving you a smoother and more radiant complexion. Hydradermabrasion has the added effect of making your skin look dewy, thanks to the extra serums infused into your skin through our special machine.

And the great thing is, these are all non-invasive treatments with no pain or downtime – what better way to prepare your skin for the wedding than a relaxing facial, are we right?


3 MONTHS BEFORE:

Ultherapy for Skin Lifting & Tightening
Lift sagging skin before the big day with Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment approved by the U.S. FDA. Think of it as a non-surgical facelift: Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to safely tighten loose skin and smooth out wrinkles, while boosting collagen production.

While some patients see an immediate lifting effect, the ultimate results of Ultherapy gradually appears over the next 3 months, as part of your body’s natural collagen regeneration process that gradually lifts and tightens skin on your face, neck, chest, or double chin.


Ultherapy Skin Tightening Treatments for Mothers of Brides/Grooms | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Hair & Makeup Trials
If you are looking to perm or straighten your hair, now’s the time. Or if you want a specific hairstyle or makeup look, try to find a couple of reference pictures so that you and your hairstylist/makeup artist are on the same page.

If you’re going together with your daughter or daughter-in-law, this could make for a good bonding session as well!


Eyebrow Grooming
If you don’t quite trust yourself to handle your brows, leave it in the hands of a professional instead. If you are looking to tint your brows or go for eyebrow embroidery, now’s a good time to do it too!


1 MONTH BEFORE:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections/Fillers
Banish unwanted frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet with anti-wrinkle injections. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually kick in a couple of days after the treatment, and the results usually for about 4 months, so a good time for such treatments would usually be a month before.

Fillers are great for treating deep-set wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds or laugh lines, as well as sunken tear troughs or hollow cheeks. The effect is immediate with little to no downtime!

Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Filler Treatments for Mothers of Brides/Grooms | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Dermalift
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tighten and lift your skin before your child’s big day, Dermalift could be an option for you. This treatment lifts and tightens your skin with a series of micro-injections – most patients see a visible lift immediately! The lifting and tightening effects of Dermalift continue over the next 5-10 days and can last for about 4 months. Click here to find out more.


1 WEEK BEFORE:

Have your last (gentle!) facial
Now’s the time to have one last facial before your child’s big day. Make sure there are no harsh or abrasive procedures – such as extraction – involved! Try a hydrating facial to get that dewy glow, or a mild enzyme peel to gently exfoliate your skin, brightening your complexion for the big day.


Cut down on salt & sugar
As much as we love our sweets and snacks, salt can cause puffiness, while sugar can wreak havoc on our complexions. Try to abstain from these as much as you can to prevent any last-minute skin problems or complications!


1 DAY BEFORE:

Manicure/Pedicure
Go with a gel nail polish to prevent any unsightly chips during the wedding.


Sleep! & Hydrate
Amidst all the planning (and excitement), try to get some rest. This best ensures that you look fresh and radiant the next day.

And there we have it! Relax and enjoy yourself – it’s your child’s big day, and it’s going to be a day filled with emotions, memories, and love. As you watch your child walk down the aisle, we bet you’re going to be so proud!

Pre-Wedding Skincare: How to start & where to begin

Getting prepped for the big day can sound quite overwhelming at times – we all hear how brides have flawless skin and glowing complexions on their wedding day, but how? How does one begin a wedding beauty regimen? Where does one even start?


Pre-Wedding Aesthetic Treatments - Laser Treatments, Facials | LS Aesthetic Clinic


We break it down for you: here are 3 simple steps you can start off from, and how you can take it up a notch whenever you feel up for it.

#1: ADOPT GOOD SKINCARE PRACTICES

Having good skincare habits way before your big day is crucial – if your skin isn’t in good condition, makeup won’t sit well on it, no matter how much you try.

Start off with a simple cleansing regimen of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising daily.

In the daytime, remember to apply sunscreen, preferably sunscreens that protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

And at night, remember to thoroughly remove all traces of makeup! Not removing makeup properly is one of the major contributors to clogged pores. Clogged pores also create a perfect breeding ground for acne bacteria, potentially causing acne breakouts as well. Try double cleansing first with an oil-based makeup remover, followed by a water-based makeup remover.

Take it up a notch by introducing retinol in your skincare routine. Retinol, or the technical name for Vitamin A, has an astounding number of benefits for your skin:

  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Boosts collagen production
  • Speeds up cellular turnover
  • Lighten age spots, melasma, and other forms of pigmentation
  • Minimise large pores


#2: LEARN TO MANAGE STRESS

Wedding planning can take a toll on even the most organised bride – last minute RSVPs! Seating plans are always a nightmare. Believe it or not, a lot of our skin problems can be triggered by our psychological state of being.

Stress, when not properly managed, can cause insomnia, worsen rosacea, and even trigger eczema breakouts, effectively sabotaging any skincare efforts you may be doing to prep your skin for your big day. Needless to say, bringing stress levels down is the way to go!


Pre-Wedding Aesthetic Treatments - Laser Treatments, Facials | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Start off by practising mindful breathing, or meditate with the help of apps such as Breathe or Headspace, when you feel things start to get overwhelming.

The great thing about meditation is that it’s not something that you have to practise for weeks to reap the benefits – you can see positive changes immediately! Not only does meditation reduce your body’s production of stress-related hormones, it also gives your brain a break from worrying about your to-do list.

Take it up a notch by fitting in a yoga class or two – that definitely helps as well! Yoga classes, apart from clearing the mind, also have the benefit of toning your core muscles, helping you look lean and toned for your big day.

#3: GET PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE

Most brides tend to seek help from an aesthetic doctor to achieve their goal of having glowing, radiant skin for their weddings.

Start off by seeking facial treatments that address your skin concerns:

Hydradermabrasion:

This aesthetic facial treatment uses the healing powers of water and oxygen to achieve the double effect of exfoliating dead skin cells and deeply cleansing pores. The active infusion of medical-grade serums also help in visibly hydrating skin.

Medical-Grade Facials:

At LS Aesthetic, our facials are not only designed to relax, rejuvenate, and pamper your skin, but also treat any skin conditions you might have, such as acne, pigmentation, or overall skin rejuvenation.

Our facials can include ultrasonic cleansing, which deeply cleanses your skin with the use of ultrasound technology, as well as mild enzyme peels to speed up cellular turnover, and brighten skin.

If you are particularly worried about dark eye circles, we also offer eye facials to lighten and brighten the undereye area, through the infusion of active serums.

Take it up a notch by going for laser treatments to further treat any skin problems you may wish to get rid off before your big day!

Laser Treatments:

Laser treatments are useful in treating a variety of skin concerns, such as acne, pigmentation, mild wrinkles, or unwanted body hair, while remaining non-invasive and requiring little to no downtime!

Most lasers are great as lunchtime beauty fixes – get your treatment done in less than half an hour, and feel free to apply makeup and resume your daily routine immediately after.

Dark eye circles can also be treated with specially-targeted eye laser treatments, which help in reducing pigment and managing the appearance of blood vessels – both of which could be the causes of your dark eye circles.

And the best part of seeking professional help is, all the planning is done for you! No need to worry about where to start or how to begin prepping your skin for your big day – your skincare treatments will be planned and scheduled for you, based on your needs.

When it comes to prepping your skin for your big day, there’s no such thing as starting too early! Every healthy habit you adopt, no matter how small, can go a long way in improving your complexion. Here are some of our tips for that coveted bridal glow:


#1: DON’T FORGET THE SPF
As we all know, harmful UV rays can cause free radical damage to our skin. This results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and a dull complexion – things you’d probably won’t want on your big day!

Remember to opt for a broad spectrum sunscreen that can protect you against UVA and UVB rays. Getting a non-comedogenic sunscreen that does not clog your pores, such as our Solar Protection Formula sunscreen, is even better!


Bridal Skincare Tips | LS Aesthetic Clinic


#2: IF YOU DIET, DO IT RIGHT
If you are looking to drop a few pounds before your wedding, make sure you do so safely and healthily. Avoid crash dieting! If you’re not getting the right nutrients, this not only shows clearly on your complexion, but can also make you look more haggard over time.

Instead, try a moderate cut to your sugar and simple carbohydrate intake. And try upping your superfoods intake with that – foods such as kale, salmon or grapefruits are not just great for your health, but for your complexion too!


Healthy Foods for Healthy Complexions | LS Aesthetic Clinic


#3: KNOW THY SKIN
Knowing your skin type and the skincare woes that systematically come up for you helps a great deal in seeking targeted treatments early.

If you know you tend to have oily skin and regular outbreaks of hormonal acne, you might want to try acne laser treatments, or hydradermabrasion, to ensure that you’re blemish-free on your big day. Or your skin tends to be on the drier side, be sure to always hydrate. Having a hydrating facial or two wouldn’t hurt either!


Facial Treatments, Microdermabrasion, Hydradermabrasion | LS Aesthetic Clinic


#4: DROP ANY LAST-MINUTE TESTING!
It’s tempting to want to try new products, especially those that promise amazing complexions in just a few days. But no matter what, don’t try any new skincare products 3 weeks before your wedding!

Any kind of allergic reaction could take a few weeks to fully subside, and this is something to definitely avoid just weeks away from your big day. Should you want to try out a new facial or skincare product, make sure to try it a couple of months before.


#5: DON’T LEAVE IT TILL THE LAST MINUTE
The longer period of time you have to correct any skin issues, the better! Common skincare woes such as acne breakouts and scars, pigmentation, or unwanted leg or underarm hair take some time to respond to aesthetic treatments, so it’s best to get it treated as early as you can.

It’s your big day! And probably also the day you’d want to look your very best.

We’ve prepared a bridal beauty guide, ranging from facial treatments to hair care, and when you should be scheduling in these treatments before your big day. How high or low maintenance you want to be is entirely up to you, so feel free to pick out from the steps below what works for you!

But you want all in, here’s the plan:

8 MONTHS BEFORE:


Laser Hair Removal
If you have unwanted hair on your legs, forearms, underarms, or upper lip that you want to zap away, be sure to start early!

Laser hair removal is most permanent and effective when removing hairs at a specific growth phase – the “active” phase. Given that the hairs on our body all grow at different rates, and you’ll have to give at least 3 weeks in between hair removal sessions, you’ll need some time to fully remove any unwanted hair.


Laser Hair Removal - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic

Visit Your Aesthetic Doctor
If you want professional help in achieving a glowing, radiant complexion for your big day, it’s best to visit an aesthetic doctor early! A good doctor can offer professional advice, advanced technologies, as well as medical-grade products to fix any acne, pigmentation, or other skin problems you might have.


Facials!
Hydradermabrasion or microdermabrasion facials are great for exfoliating dead skin cells to reveal a smoother complexion, and hydradermabrasion has the added benefit of infusing active serums into your skin for that added glow!

Facials that offer mild enzyme peels are also a great way to get a smooth, radiant complexion without any downtime.

And what better way than a relaxing facial to do get rid of the wedding planning stress, are we right?


Facials, Microdermabrasion, Hydradermabrasion - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Start A Consistent Skincare Regimen
Consistency is key here! Remember to cleanse, tone, and moisturise every morning and night, and exfoliate a couple of times a week. If your doctor prescribes you a certain skincare regimen, be sure to follow that instead.

And always, always, remember to remove your makeup completely at the end of the day – no matter how late it is or how lazy you feel.


6 MONTHS BEFORE:

Dark Eye Rings Laser/Facial
If you want to get rid of your dark eye rings, either laser treatments or eye facials can be useful in reducing the appearance of unwanted panda eyes.

At LS Aesthetic Clinic, our signature eye laser treatment reduces the appearance of dark eye circles by removing unwanted pigment and lessening the appearance of blood vessels, both of which could contribute to dark eye circles.

On the other hand, our eye facials involve the targeted infusion of active serums with specialised machines, lightening and brightening your undereye area.

There needs to be about 2 weeks between each facial or laser treatment, so if your dark circles are something you want treated before your big day, remember to start as early as you can!

Dark Eye Circles Laser Treatments - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


Start Exercise & Nutrition Regimen
We all want to look healthy and toned on our big day, not bony and weak! Enroll in a HIIT class, go for a run twice a week, or do home cardio workouts with the help of Youtube exercise videos – stay consistently active, and your body will shape up in no time!

But be sure to always listen to your body, and give yourself the rest you need.

Avoid crash-dieting too – that doesn’t work out in the long term.


Experiment with Hair Colour
Thinking about something new for your wedding? It’s best to test it out a couple of months before. If you don’t end up liking it, there’s still time to change it up.


Acne/Pigmentation Laser Treatments
If you’re looking to get rid of your acne or pigmentation woes with laser treatments, plan your laser treatment schedule with your doctor so that your skin will be prepped in time for your big day!

Laser treatments often have an additional positive effect of boosting collagen production and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin. These take time as these effects occur as part of your body’s natural processes – so planning and scheduling are key!

Laser Treatments for Acne, Pigmentation - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


3 MONTHS BEFORE:

Hair/Makeup Trials
Now’s the time to start experimenting with different hair and makeup styles for your wedding!

Remember to bring along a couple of reference pictures too – “loose, wavy curls” can sometimes mean different things to different people! This is where Pinterest could come in handy. Bring along a picture of your wedding dress if you can – this could help your hairstylist and makeup artist visualise your look better.

If you want to perm or straighten your hair, now’s the time. Remember to schedule a touch-up session closer to your big day, just in case.



Eyebrow Grooming
If you don’t quite trust yourself and your tweezers, schedule a trip to a professional. If you want to tint your brows, now’s a good time to try it too! (And not just before your wedding)



Ultherapy/Radiofrequency Treatments
If you are looking to lift or tighten the skin on your face, Ultherapy or radiofrequency treatments might be for you. Think of them as non-surgical facelifts – these treatments use either ultrasound energy or radiofrequency to lift, tighten, and tone lax skin. And with no downtime!

Ultherapy also has the added benefit of stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which contributes to that radiant glow every bride wants!

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Facials - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic


1 MONTH BEFORE:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections/Fillers
Fillers are good for treating deep facial wrinkles, sunken forehead temples or cheeks, and for augmenting your cheeks, chin, or lips, should you wish to do so. The effect of a filler treatment is immediate with little to no downtime.

Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce any unwanted crow’s feet or frown lines, helping you look picture-perfect on your big day. Such injections generally last for a couple of months and it takes a couple of days for the anti-wrinkle effects to kick in, so schedule your appointment 1 month before.

If you are looking to achieve a V-shaped face for our wedding, botulinum toxin injections can help to give you a sharper jawline. Depending on your face shape, chin fillers can also be used to sharpen your chin, further enhancing the V-shaped face that you want.


Fillers, Square Jaw Reduction for a V-Shaped Face - Bridal Treatments | LS Aesthetic Clinic

1 WEEK BEFORE:

Brows
Schedule your final brow session, and resist overplucking with your tweezers!


Facials
Schedule your final facial – make sure it’s a gentle one! A soothing, hydrating facial works best to preserve and enhance a radiant complexion.


Food Intake
To prevent puffiness, especially on the face, cut down on salt as much as you can. Control your sugar intake too to prevent any potential skin problems or complications.


1 DAY BEFORE:

Manicure/Pedicure
Request for a gel polish to prevent unsightly chips on your big day.


Pack Emergency Kit
Have a kit of supplies ready for any last-minute emergencies! Some supplies include: stain remover wipes, nail polish, cotton buds, bobby pins, and a sewing kit.


Sleep! & Hydrate!
Amidst all the last-minute planning, try to get some rest. This will best ensure that you are fresh and radiant the next day.
