Good Skincare: An Important Part of Your Makeup Routine

March 31, 2017

Every day, we spend a lot of time on our makeup routine. Our goal is a fresh, healthy glow that will last throughout the day. Many people forget to pay as much attention to their skincare at the end of the day, but this part of the routine is just as important. Fortunately, just a few steps are all that’s needed to leave you with healthy skin that helps your makeup look great.

Cleansing is always the first step. Besides removing makeup, cleansing also removes dirt, sweat, and dead skin that builds up every day. Without cleansing, these pollutants will clog your pores, which can leave skin dull or even cause breakouts. Use a facial cleanser that is specifically formulated for your skin type. Wash once a day and pat dry.

Exfoliators and toners are the next step. Exfoliators remove more dead skin and pollutants and should be used every two or three days. If you have oily skin, toners should be a part of your everyday routine. They balance out your skins’ pH level and stabilize your skin.

Hydrating your skin is a crucial final step. Use a moisturizer designed for your skin type, and when moisturizing in the morning before applying makeup, be sure that it includes sunscreen with an SPF factor of at least 15. After moisturizing, use any additional products that you may need for acne or other skin issues.

Now that you have a great skincare routine, your makeup will always look fabulous!
