No matter what your skin type is -- oily, dry, normal or combo -- it craves water. Sure, drinking water helps, but snacking on watermelon works too. Other super foods for your face: grapefruit, broccoli and lettuce.
5. "Shrink" Your Pores With Microdermabrasion
We want to give it to you straight, so first, the bad news: You can't actually change the size of your pores. "The deeper a pore is, the bigger it looks on the skin's surface," says Cornelia Zicu, global chief creative officer and renowned facialist for Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas. The good news: You can minimize the depth of your pores to make them seem smaller. Here's how: "Microdermabrasion, glycolic acid and other chemical peels will exfoliate layers of bad skin and minimize pore surface," Zicu explains.
6. Use Salt Scrubs to Soften Elbows
This is the one thing most brides forget about. Add a bath to your weekly routine and throw in bath salts with sodium bicarbonate. "The sodium bicarbonate will break down dry patches and make your skin a sponge for moisture," says Zicu. For really tough patches, ask an aesthetician to put a glycolic peel on your elbows when you go in for a facial.
