Prom season is here! And chances are, you’re going to want your face to look as flawless as possible in all the selfies and pics you snap on your special night. But while you have your date, your dress, and your after-prom plans all set, do you have your skin care routine on lock? No worries—we’re here to help you out. Follow our guide to prepping your complexion before the big event—and have fun!

Prom Skin Care Tip #1: Maintain a Consistent Skin Care Routine

You know how solving equations becomes almost like second nature the more times you do it? Think of your skin care routine in the same way. The more often you cleanse and moisturize morning and night, the easier it’ll be to stick to it without even having to remind yourself to do it. Look for skin care products that are formulated for your skin type, whether that’s oily, combination, dry, or sensitive.

Prom Skin Care Tip #2: Take Your Makeup Off Before Bed

So you stayed out late with your BFFs and are exhausted by the time you get home—we’ve all been there. But taking off your makeup before bed is definitely a good idea. That’s because when you snooze in your makeup, it can mix with the dirt and oil on your face, leading to clogged pores—which can lead to breakouts. Keep things easy by storing a bottle of micellar water on your nightstand. Micellar water is a no-rinse cleansing option powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from your skin.

The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water of choice and wipe the pad across your face.

Prom Skin Care Tip #3: Try a Clay Mask

Getting ready with your girlfriends before the limo comes to get you to take you to prom? Create a spa-like experience at home by using a clay mask. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Mask is formulated with three clays (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava) and enhanced with charcoal to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dullness. Apply an even layer to clean skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with water. Use three times a week for best results.

Prom Skin Care Tip #4: Perfect Your Pout

Obviously, you’re going to want a camera-ready smile for all those photos you’re going to take. Prep your pucker by using a lip scrub, then following up with a hydrating lip balm. Then, try the dual-sided L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color, which has a lip color on one end and a sealing balm on the other.

Prom Skin Care Tip #5: Use Primer Before Foundation

You’re going to be dancing the night away at prom, so it’s a pretty safe bet to say you’ll want your foundation to stay in place while you do so. Before applying foundation, use a primer to help create an even canvas and ensure your makeup stays put. The L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base has a silky, lightweight formula that glides onto skin with a matte finish. It helps smooth lines, hide pores, and banish imperfections. Apply it after moisturizing dot by dot and blend it in a gentle circular motion over your entire face. You can also use it on targeted areas, like under your eyes, your nose and cheeks, or your T-zone.

We hope you have a great time at prom!
