I know one of the BIGGEST CONCERNS my seniors have is their skin on the day of their session. Have no fear! At AKP, we have consulted industry experts & they have given us the top three secrets to help you prep your face for portrait perfection!

#1. Avoid salicylic acid: Try to avoid using products containing salicylic acid at least 3 days before your appointment. It can leave your skin red and extremely dry which can look patchy and textured.

#2. Exfoliate your face: Exfoliate with a physical exfoliator at least 2 days prior to your application session. It will help reduce dry patches and texturing. It will also smooth your skin which will make your airbrush foundation apply smoothly to your face.

#3. Moisturize your face: Wash your face thoroughly before your session and apply a hydrating moisturizer. The foundation will apply more evenly if your face is prepped and ready before any color is applied.

These are just a few of the many tips and tricks we give our seniors in our famous session prep education! If you are looking for a photographer who will help you every step of the way for your senior portrait experience, connect with us!
