How do famous actresses continue to pull off the latest make up trends? They take especially good care of their skin! This is something YOU can replicate from your own home. Here are some time-tested ideas I've gathered to help you with your skin care regimen so you can rock the latest make up trends.
To keep your skin looking beautiful, don't forget the sunscreen. One of the top causes of unhealthy skin is due to sun damage. Get a light facial moisturizer that contains an SPF of at least 15. Sun damage can cause wrinkles, freckles, sun spots and dry skin. Protect your skin and don't leave the house without your sunscreen.
Buying Skin Care Products
Don't make your skin care purchase decisions based on status. The beauty industry goes out of its way to confer status on expensive creams, lotions, and the like. But you need to find products that work for YOUR skin and don't break the bank. If that $25.00 bar of soap works as well for you as your $1.50 bar of soap, and no one knows what's in your bathroom vanity at home, why spend the money?
To keep skin-care costs to a minimum, do your research to find the best deals. Beauty does not have to cost a fortune. There are many great resources online, including popular beauty blogs and skin-care forums, where members are more than happy to share their very best beauty bargains with you.
Applying Make Up
Avoid the use of neon lighting in your bathroom. Neon lights damage your skin and make everything appear harsher. When putting on make up, they make you feel that you don't have enough and you may end up going overboard. Try to set a nice, spa like mood in your bathroom by using dimmed lighting with candle wall sconces as a lighting alternative.
When removing make up you should use an oil-free make up remover, NOT your facial cleanser. Some cleansers are gentle enough, but most end up irritating the sensitive skin around your eyes.
If you keep up with your skin care regimen daily, ensuring your skin gets all the nutrients and treatments that it needs to stay soft, supple, and young looking, then you will have an amazing base to apply your make up!
