Welcome to the second edition of our Back to Basics series. Throughout this series we will be covering the basics of things like foundation applications, concealing, blush application and more! The basic things you should know, at any age or skill level!
Let's get started!
(Do's and Don'ts)
Do: Cleanse your skin ever day before going to bed. This will both keep your pillow clean and keep the oil you produce at night from caking your makeup into your pores.
Don't: Strip your skin with drying cleansers and astringents. This will only create dryness and FORCE your body to create more oil.
Do: Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated is extremely important to keep your skin working properly. It is an organ after all.
Don't: Cover your face with powder to reduce the shine. Use oil absorbing sheets instead.
I use a Clarisonic. BEST INVESTMENT! It use it every night when I cleanse my skin with the Glycolic Acid Face Wash. My skin made a big turn around when I started using it. It gently exfoliates and smoothes the skin while helping reduce pour size! (get one)
