"Luckily my skin didn't disappoint me on the wedding day but I was prepared that incase a pimple arrives overnight, thanks to all the hustle and stress, I would have handled it with ice cubes! Tried and tested this trick in the past, and trust me, it has done wonders! All you've got to do is take a clean handkerchief and set it on the pimple for a few minutes. Visibly reduces the redness and swelling, which can be easily concealed with makeup!"

"First of all, DO NOT POP IT! I know you must be aware of it, but reminding you just in case you feel you have no other choice. Trust you MUA to conceal it. Still confused? Well, I had a pimple on my forehead on my wedding day, and I was freaking out, but thanks to my makeup artist it went unnoticed."
"Having a zit on my wedding day was my biggest nightmare, luckily it wasn't that huge. I knew that popping it would be a disaster, so I tried my old formula - the toothpaste spot treatment! As it tends to dry out the zit, I wouldn't recommend this to brides-to-be with dry skin. But trust me, it worked wonders for me on my special day. Also, I never overdo it, as it can be harsh on the skin! So stick to your best bet."
"I would say you shouldn't be embarrassed to have a pimple in the first place. All you can do is lessen the obviousness because you can never completely hide it! I kept my skin hydrated with an oil-free moisturizer (because a dry, flaky pimple is more prominent), and it prepped my skin before the makeup routine, making it easy for the MUA."

"Woke up on my wedding day with a little zit on my nose! Wow. Had no time to crib, so I tried a quick DIY trick that I had kept handy in case I get into such a situation. Pressed a warm cloth over it and then dabbed tea tree oil using a q-tip! It calmed the pimple and made it less visible."
