There aren’t too many days in our lives where we can wear an over-the-top party dress, get our hair and makeup professionally done and have photos taken of us. So, when prom season comes around it’s no wonder girls work hard to choose the perfect dress and do all they can to look their best on prom day.
When it comes to your prom, everyone’s first concern is the dress; the perfect, gorgeous dress. The prom dress industry has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Gone are homemade taffeta nightmares or hand me downs. Now, the prom industry is worth over $4 billion and much of that comes from the dresses.
Modern prom dresses can rival celebrity looks from the Oscar red carpet, however, they can also rival them in price as well. Luckily, many affordable prom dress designers offer stunning designs for a fraction of the cost of some bigger brands. If you have a limited budget and still want to look your best, JJsHouse.com is a good choice to peruse an insanely varied selection of gorgeous (and affordable) prom dresses.
Once you have your dress nailed down, it’s time to consider makeup. If you can afford a professional, it’s a great time to learn some new tips and tricks that will help with your makeup application in the future. If you can’t, YouTube is now filled with droves of skilled, professional makeup artists that can help you learn to apply your own makeup.
When leading up to prom, it’s important to take care of your skin by getting on a successful skincare routine at least 6 weeks out and drinking lots of water.
Since you’re going to be on your feet all day (and most of the night), you’ll want a pair of stylish but comfortable shoes to dance the night away in. While you might want to save some money on your shoes, it’s important not to find the cheapest pair you can that looks cute. You’ll quickly regret that decision when they start blistering your heels and cutting into your feet. Instead, try to find a balance between fashion and comfort. Not used to wearing a stiletto heel but want some height? Choose a sturdy wedge instead that will give you height without pain.
We encourage you not to try crash dieting or any extreme forms of exercise just before your prom. Not only is this an unhealthy way to lose weight, you also run the risk of injuring yourself or damaging your body. However, if you want to start pursuing a healthier lifestyle, many people find that having a goal or day to shoot for can be helpful.
Try to increase the amount of moderate exercise you do, up until an hour a day, and consume lots of healthy foods like fruit, veggies, and whole grains. Cut back on sugar and sugary drinks, such as flavored coffees or soda, and replace it with water or herbal teas.
