Prom Prep 101

Today I'll be doing a Satellite Media Tour appearing on 27 TV stations across the country talking about preparing for the prom. I'm really excited because I know how important prom season is and love the fact that I have the opportunity to share some beauty secrets for all of the ladies and gents who will be attending!  By far, the best accessories for prom are clear skin, a bright smile and kissable lips. Since skin care is a main concern for most teens, it's important to start taking care of it now and not wait for the night before the prom.  God forbid you get a pimple!  I recommend using the new Clearasil Ultra Acne + Marks line.  The face wash doubles as a mask and contains 2% salicylic acid in it to remove dirt and oil from your pores and help clear and prevent break outs. Leave it on for 10 minutes once or twice a week for a deep clean.  If you get a pimple or see a mark starting to form from a pimple, use the spot treatment.  The salicylic acid will clear it quickly and it also has licorice root and Vitamin B3, which helps to diminish the mark.  I like it because it's a lotion, so it doesn't dry your skin out.

Then, from pre-prom photos through to the after party, your smile is your best asset!  Start prepping it with Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Enamel Renewal Toothpaste.  It removes up to 90% of surface stains in just two weeks.  I use this whole collection, which you can learn more about here.

Finally, I recommend accentuating your natural features.  It's your prom so you don't want to over do it with makeup.  Nivea Lip Care came out with a line called "A Kiss Of..," which features A Kiss of Shine, A Kiss of Color and A Kiss of Moisture.  Each one is available in a variety of shades.

All products are available at drugstores.  Want to know more?  Comment below with your questions and I'll answer them!
