If you have a big event like a wedding (or your high school reunion) and want gorgeous skin, you can follow a three-step program many celebrities use to get ready for awards shows and red carpet premieres.
Renowned dermatologist Harold Lancer, MD, spilled his three-step secret for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to Harper's Bazaar a few years ago and I kept the article so I can share his secrets with you. Here's how to get glowing skin just in time for a special event.

Salicylic acid cleansers are typically used to treat acne, but work well as exfoliants by getting rid of dead skin cells.
