Six Months Before Your Wedding: Visit a Dermatologist Before you pick out the perfect makeup, you'll want to make sure your canvas (aka your complexion) is in good shape. If you're already pretty happy with your skin, you can skip this step, but if you're dealing with acne, scarring or other complexion problems, head to your derm ASAP. It can take weeks -- or even months -- for a new skin care regimen to work, so you'll want to give yourself plenty of time to try out the doctor-recommended products or any in-office treatments she suggests. The best advice we can give: Be patient while the products are working. Often acne gets worse before it gets better. Hang in there and work with your doctor -- the payoff will be worth it.
