Sofia Vergara undergoing intensive two-month skincare treatment for wedding day
Sofia Vergara's skin is surprisingly sensitive, according to her dermatologist.
Sofia Vergara's dermatologist Dr. Dendy E. Engelman started prepping the star's skin for her wedding day two months ago.
The 43-year-old Modern Family actress is tying the knot with 38-year-old Magic Mike XXL star Joe Manganiello at The Breakers Palm Beach resort in Florida on Sunday 22 November 2015.
Sofia has ensured her face will be glowing as she walks down the aisle with the help of Dr. Engelman, who has outlined skin treatments in detail.
"Two months before, we started with a skin firming for her décolleté and arms -- not that she really needs it -- but it helps just to have the firmness of the skin that you're going to expose," the medical professional told ET Online, noting Nerium Firming Body Contour Cream ($110) is the product used for this process.
Closer to the wedding date is when Sofia undergoes the more intense sessions, with Dr. Engelman explaining: "A month out we start with a laser called Intense Pulsed Light (about $300 to $600 per treatment) which helps to target red and brown spots, and helps to make the skin look fresh and very luminous -- that way we have plenty of time for recovery in case there's a spot that's trying to flake off.
"I also start with a regimen of the Natura Bisse Enzyme Peel ($150) which helps just to accelerate cell turnover and make our skin look really glowing, and then I also like to recommend from Natura Bisse the Diamond Life Infusion Serum ($590) which helps to build collagen and makes the skin look bright and fresh."
Dr. Engelman has been working with Sofia since 2011 and over the years the physician learned a lot about her patient.
Although Sofia hails from the warm, tropical country of Colombia, her skin is surprisingly delicate.
"Little known fact, Sophia has pretty sensitive skin for being Latin so she tends to flush a little bit," Dr. Engelman said. "That's great for sun exposure as well.
"Day of (the wedding), I do appreciate that despite her Colombian roots, she does protect her skin, so she has a very famous and favourite self-tanner called Vita Liberata Mousse ($43) ... and then just a body shimmer by Moroccan Oil ($48) which will help give a beautiful glow to her, and she's ready to walk down the aisle."
