While we look at achieving the perfect makeup look, we need to keep in mind the importance of skin care for a flawless base! How should you take care of your skin to achieve the perfect base?
Here are 5 simple steps to help make your skin happy.
Step 1: Cleanser
Find a cleanser suitable for your skin type, one that cleanses your skin of all its impurities but also doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry afterwards. utilising a charcoal mask acts as a great exfoliant and provides your face with an instant glow.
Step 2: Toner
This will help you remove any further impurities that may have remained after cleansing your face.
Step 3: Under Eye Cream
The importance of a good under eye cream is that it helps reduce the puffiness around one’s eyes and also reduce dark circles if any. They should provide a lifting effect to the under-eye region. Look for products that have Vitamin E, Amino Acid, Hyaluronic acid, cyclodextrin, in order to achieve optimum results.
Utilising an under-eye cream will also help in smoothening the skin therefore making the application of concealer easier and makes sure it does not look cakey, thereby giving your eyes a natural finish.
Step 4: Serum
Serum plays an important role in skin care. It helps keep the skin hydrated, reduces any blemish and also tightens the skin. Having components of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E in your serum is of key importance in hydration and decrease in blemishes. Apart from which ingredients such as Bee Venom and Pollen help in tightening the skin and acts as natural Botox when used.
While utilising serum, make sure you use only 2 – 3 drops, as much as the skin requires. As using excess serum can result in your skin becoming oily, as your skin will only absorb the amount necessary.
Step 5: Face Cream
Face Creams play a crucial role in one’s skin care routine. We tend to utilise creams that benefit the problem we are trying to tackle. It is crucial for creams to contain ingredients such as Vitamin A, C and E, Hyaluronic Acid and also some natural ingredients such as Snail Slime or Plant Placenta which may further help hydrate your skin and provide it a nourished feel.
To achieve the glow that we all look for, creams that contain ingredients such as 24K Gold micro particles help you achieve a radiant and glowing skin!
Once you have completed your skin care routine, you are now ready to put on your makeup. With a base that will make your makeup look flawless. You can also add creams that contain 24K Gold micro particles and utilize it as highlight over your makeup look! If you aren’t applying makeup make sure to apply sunscreen as it is an essential component that will protect your skin from damage from UV Rays.
