gay-wedding-day-beauty-pimplesIt shouldn’t come as a surprise if your skin goes a little crazy leading up to your wedding day. But what can a guy do? Makeup is obviously an option, but not the most desirable solution, especially for irritated skin that isn’t used to it. Whether you have days, hours or even minutes, there’s always something you can do to literally “save face.”


If you happen to catch the little monsters the night before, you can make a little paste with a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and some honey. Load up the trouble spots overnight and consider your problem vaporized. If you don’t have cinnamon handy, a little honey plus a Band-Aid might do the trick.


The real emergencies will, of course, happen the morning of. If you have a couple hours until go time, apply a little lemon juice to dry out and minimize. Make sure to wash this one off before going outside though, as lemon juice can make your skin sensitive to the sun!


Maybe you’re running late, and things are getting down to the wire. While there isn’t a whole lot you can do to minimize a pimple in under an hour, we have a few suggestions. Slice off the top of a strawberry, rub it on problem areas, and wash after 20-30 minutes. In some cases, a dab of plain white toothpaste will do the trick. Oh, and never underestimate the power of a hot shower!
