With all our efforts and struggles, sometimes things don’t go hand in hand. Everyone starts preparing for prom even before it is announced. All girls' dream of looking gorgeous on this night, and they put a lot of effort into it, but sometimes accidents occur. You should not panic or start worrying about it. Instead, be prepared because anything can happen. If you have prepared your dress, shoes, jewelry, and other important things, then it is time to tell you how to handle prom emergencies as well. Let’s get started!

If there was a zit or pimple on your face a day before or even on a similar day, then it is not the time to panic. What you can do is take two aspirin tablets, crush them into a fine powder, and add a few drops of water to it. Now, apply this mixture to your pimple and let it sit for 20 minutes. It will be gone soon!

Another thing that can happen is that you wake up with puffy eyes. You don’t have to be worried again as the quick and easy fix is to put two metal tablespoons in the freezer for 10 minutes and put them on your eyes. Do this again and again until you don’t see any puffiness.

I woke up with a swollen face. No issue. You can easily reduce swelling by doing a lymphatic drainage massage at home. Take a few drops of oil and apply them to your face. Now massage your face with it in a downward and upward direction and you will see an amazing result.

If you sat on chewing gum accidentally while you were wearing your dress, then don’t be worried because we also have a solution for that. For this, take a plastic cover and add ice cubes to it. Now rub the ice on the chewing gum. The chewing gum will become hard and it will come off easily.

If you have a minor stain on your expensive dress and you are worried about it, then don’t be because we have a solution for that too. Take some non-acetone nail polish remover and apply it to the stain. The nail polish remover will take the stain off easily.

Always carry bobby pins and mini hair spray in your bag to get rid of fly aways or loose hairstyles. For a makeup touch-up, take the lipstick you are wearing and also put on blush. Also, put band aids in your bag because your friend might need them. Don’t forget to take the extra cash and fully charge your phone for other emergencies as well.

Broken Zipper, It’s the biggest nightmare of every girl. What if the zip is stuck or just breaks? For this, take a safety pin and take off the bottom part of it. Now stick it in the zipper and pull it up. The zipper will come back to its normal position and you can easily zip it up.

If your heels are giving you trouble, then don’t worry, we have a solution for that too. For this, take some band-aids and stick them to the back of your heels so that they don’t hurt you anymore. You can walk freely now without any pain in your heels.

The most important thing is to be careful and pay attention to small details. It’s never too late to avoid an emergency situation, especially if you are aware of what can go awry. If you have your dress ready before time, then you are safe enough. Forgetting your handbag or having a broken heel can ruin your prom experience. Make sure that everything is right, and that you have no embarrassing situations during your prom night.
