Mastering a perfect look on your face can be quite tricky and frustrating. Most women go overboard with products and makeup to make them look the best. Ladies this may not be the best option for your skin! Our skin is a sensitive and prominent layer that needs extra attention because it is exposed to a lot of dirt and harmful exponents. Keeping a simple and basic routine for your face before and after makeup can not only give you that flawless look that you need, but also helps your skin stay healthy and fresh.
One basic rule for your skin should be to moisturize it. Use a good moisturizer for your skin that helps rejuvenate and hydrate your skin on a daily basis. If you have an oily skin type, look for oil-free lotions for moisturizers. Rose water can be a good alternative for oily skin. Make sure your moisturizer has SPF content in it to protect your skin from harmful rays of sunlight. Keep your skin fresh by having a daily cleansing routine before and after the day.
Cleanse your skin by gently massaging your skin in an upward direction. Use a cotton pad to remove all the material from your face and then rinse properly. Do not scrub, pull or tug too hard on your skin as it might put marks or blemishes. Treat yourself to an at-home-facial 2 to 3 times a week. Use a mild cleanser, and then exfoliate with a gentle scrub that contains exfoliants that are round and non-abrasive. Apply a facial mask after exfoliating and rinse well. This will scrape off all the dirt and dead skin and you will have a fresh and glowing skin.
While applying products or makeup material on your face, make sure that the products are new and not expired. Apply only those products that suit your skin type and are not harmful in anyway. Use a moisturizer before applying foundation or you can use a BB cream as well. Even if you’re going out at night or in a cloudy day, make sure that your foundation or moisturizer has at least 15SPF content in it. Never forget to put makeup off at night before sleeping. The biggest mistake is to sleep while keeping your makeup on as it opens your skin pore and can make your skin rough looking.
To even out the tone, concealer is a must. Again, use a concealer that matches your skin color and preferably use a liquid one. To hide imperfections or trouble spots, use a thick cream concealer and pat it on the mark and then blend it with a makeup sponge. Keep your skin hydrated and enjoy a flawless everyday perfection.
