Facials prior to getting makeup is usually NOT recommended. Christiné does not recommend a facial at anytime within the 3-5 days prior to your wedding — and even then preferably with an esthetician who has given you a facial previously with predictable results. Facials are stressful on the skin, and some skin types can react negatively to different facial products and techniques. Getting a facial short before your biggest day can be risky, so it is best to allow your skin to be “well rested” and free from any recent “traumas”. If your skin needs special attention, try to get the work done a minimum of 5 days prior.
