NOOO!!

So i most generally have really clear skin, unless its that time of the month.. but 7 days before my wedding my face starts breaking out like crazy, my back too and my dress is strapless !!!  :( Im not even really stressed because i have everything done.  (Well i wasn't stressed although now i am!) Maybe its just being nervous getting the best of me! Did this happen to any of you who are already married!! Super frustrating!

    Do you have a spot treatment you can use? I use Murad and it works well for me. I wouldn't go crazy trying a bunch of new products, though.

    The acne you see is the end stage of a two week process.  You probably had tons of stress two weeks ago, and now your skin is showing it.

    Wash your skin often, and apply acne astringents to your back (ProActive is the best thing ever).  Keep your skin moisturized with a product that does not contain oils (hard to find, but worth it).

    Don't worry overly much, your makeup artist should be able to cover up imperfections.

    Not all oils are bad for your face; in fact, some of them are highly recommended.

    <div>Yeah, but without knowing her skin, and with her crunched timeframe, it's not really the time to experiment to figure out which oils don't provoke more acne.  Then there's always the chance she has skin like mine, which breaks out into WWIII if ANY oils come within 2 feet of it. </div>
