No. 2: Trying a new treatment the day before an event "Don't do it!" Somerville says. Even if it seems safe, trying any new procedure before a big event is just asking for redness, breakouts, and possibly even hives. Her advice: "Test a new product three to four weeks before something important. That way there's time for your skin to calm down." And if you're lying on the facialist's table and she suggests a peel or new treatment, speak up if you've got a special occasion coming so she doesn't take the risk.
