If possible, start your new complexion plan at least four to six weeks before your quinceañera.
Cleanse your face morning and night. If your skin is oily or acne-prone, choose a wash that contains benzoyl peroxide. This will help get rid of those pimples.
After cleansing, smooth on an oil-free moisturizer. Choose one with sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. Or, if you're acne-prone, look for one with salicylic acid. This will dissolve oil, while moisturizing your skin.
Zap any pimples that pop up by applying a spot treatment containing salicylic acid one to three times daily until the spot is gone.
During the day, control oil with blotting sheets. These will take down shine and soak up extra oil.
To avoid spreading dirt, oil and bacteria, keep your hair and hands away from your face. Also, change your pillowcase every few days, keep your phone clean and definitely no picking or squeezing a pimple, no matter how annoying it is.
Disguise pimples that show up the day of your celebration by applying an acne patch to smooth out the bump and help your makeup go on smoother.
Stash blotting sheets in your purse, so you can do a quick blot anytime. This'll keep your skin looking fresh and free of shine in pictures without messing up your makeup.
