Skincare Basics: Find the Routine You Need for Gorgeous Makeup
Great-looking skin requires care, and having healthy, hydrated skin is important when you want your makeup to look great. We’d all love to have time for a full facial treatment morning and night, but real life keeps us busy, and usually we don’t have time for an ideal skincare routine. Here are some tips from the pros that can keep your skin looking great in the time you have.
The two most important steps are cleansing and moisturizing. If you have time for nothing else, do these two steps. It’s especially important to cleanse at night to remove the day’s makeup and pollutants, then to replenish the moisture your day stripped away. In the morning, cleansing and moisturizing before applying makeup will give you the perfect foundation for a glowing, healthy look.
The next important step is protection from the sun. Even on cloudy days, harmful UV light penetrates through the clouds and onto your face. Damage from regular, excessive exposure to the sun can cause premature aging, which eventually leads to lines and wrinkles. To hold those off as long as you can, make a regular practice of using sunscreen on your face. The perfect solution when you’re pressed for time is to choose a moisturizer that also has sunscreen.
Once those minimal basics are met, you can add to your routine as you have time. Many people skip toners because they see them as an extra step. But if you have time, use one. Toners balance the pH levels of your skin and prepare them to be better receptive of the layers of hydration and makeup that follows. Always choose a product designed for your individual skin type.
Exfoliation is an important step because it removes built-up dirt and dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to breakouts and other issues. If you don’t have time to exfoliate every day, work it into your routine a few times a week. Exfoliation also helps stimulate your skin’s own anti-aging processes like building more collagen and replacing cells. That’s why regular exfoliating is an important part of a regular skincare routine.
Finally, don’t forget that great skincare starts on the inside. A healthy, nutritious diet with plenty of water helps keep your skin, your body’s largest organ, healthy and glowing.
