While planning and enjoying the big night, make smart decisions to help keep it safe, low-stress, and fun!

If you or someone you know is going to the prom, here are a few tips for a great experience. Find fun ways to stay active, such as walking, dancing, gardening, swimming, and more. You don’t need a tan to be beautiful, and you definitely don’t need sunburn!

Always test a product in a small area of your body first.

Allergies may happen the first time or after multiple uses.

For some people, using cosmetics may cause itching, redness, rash, sneezing, or wheezing.

Stop using the product if problems develop, and remove all products before bedtime to prevent skin and eye irritation. High heels may be in style, but they can increase your chances of falling if they’re too high or uncomfortable, or not something you usually wear.

Prevent injury and wear appropriate shoes that won’t affect how you walk or dance.

If cost is an issue, look for alternatives to spending a lot of money. Tell family members or a trusted adult what your plans are ahead of time.

Make an agreement with friends to check on one another during the evening.

Be sure someone you trust is available for you to call if your plans change or you need help.

Whether you plan to go with a date, with friends, or on your own, the point is to have a good time.
