Flawless Makeup – Skin Preparation

Consider your face as a canvas. Just as a painter selects the appropriate canvas before beginning the artwork, you too should employ a suitable skin care routine to suit your skin type and lifestyle. Never underestimate the importance of skin care preparation to ensure a clean, fresh, natural looking soft silky korea mink lashes canvas. Thorough skin prepping will ensure your foundation (the makeup base) glides on smoothly for what should result in a flawless coverage…

As a professional soft silky korea mink lashes artist, whilst I highly recommend that you visit a beauty therapist and/or skin care consultant (a worthwhile investment); the following are basic steps that you can immediately apply to your skin care regime.

Cleanse, moisturise and protect… preferably twice a day but, if you must choose, pay particular attention to your evening skin care routine. An evening skin care clean will combat and treat any daytime exposure to environmental pollutants and climate damage, such as the wind and sun. Never go to bed without first removing your makeup. Wearing makeup to bed will clog your pores, not to mention soil your pillowcase (promoting further skin irritation), and sleeping with mascara on can damage and break your lashes.

Be careful not to over cleanse oily skin, doing so may strip away too much oil which leads to increased oil production. Before you cleanse your skin, it’s important to gently remove your makeup first. If you don’t own a specific soft silky korea mink lashes remover, an oil-based cream is ideal for removing makeup (particularly cream based foundations), regardless of your skin type. Otherwise, any moisturiser will suffice and is obviously better than not removing your makeup at all.

Cleansers come in different forms, e.g. foaming cleansers, gels, lotions, and pH balanced soap (personally not a favourite of mine). Choose a skin care to suit your skin type. Correct cleansing will eliminate any daytime grime, perspiration and stale soft silky korea mink lashes , all of which contribute to blocked pores and unsightly blackheads and other blemishes. If you’re unsure of your skin type, this is when a beauty therapist and/or skin consultant comes in handy. Wet your face and décolletage with warm water, rubbing the cleanser between your hands first will warm the product to ensure it penetrates your skin, follow this step by gently massaging the cleanser over your face (particularly the oily t-zone) and décolletage. In a circular motion, gently rinse off with a washcloth. A washcloth is an excellent way to gently exfoliate your skin on a daily basis.

Your skin will thank you if you take this one step further, a regular gentle exfoliation and the occasional facial mask treatment. I recommend exfoliating at least once, or perhaps even twice per week, and applying a facial mask treatment once a fortnight or once a month. You may also consider treating yourself to a professional facial once every month to two months, not only is it a relaxing pamper if you can afford the luxury, but it will also enable your beauty therapist to correct any skin issues you may experience from time to time, often more noticeable between the changing seasons of weather and climate, and gradually noticeable as we age.

Exfoliation is the removal of scaly and dry skin, more commonly referred to as the dead skin cells. Dry dead skin inhibits the effectiveness of your skin being able to absorb moisture and protective barriers such as sunscreen. Regular exfoliation will rid the appearance of dull skin, and by sloughing it off you are creating a smooth canvas for your foundation base.

Applying a suitable moisturiser to freshly cleansed and slightly damp skin will replace any natural oils that you may have cleansed away. A light water-based moisturiser is ideal for normal to oily or blemish-prone skin (anti-shine products are ideal for the t-zone), whilst dry skin may benefit from oil-based moisturisers. A close friend of mine swears by plain and natural almond oil as the best ever moisturiser for her dry skin; almond oil can be found in most health food stores and some supermarkets; occasionally she also uses it on her hair, after shampooing, as a leave-in hair treatment before a final rinse.

Combination and sensitive skin types may need special attention, for example, combination skin may require a light water-based moisturiser on the oily t-zone and oil-based moisturiser on the drier skin areas, whilst sensitive skin types can benefit from fragrance-free and hypoallergenic moisturisers. Regardless of your skin type, I highly recommend non-pore clogging (noncomedogenic or nonacnegenic) moisturisers, if in doubt look for the dermatologist tested brands. I personally love a SPF moisturiser for the daytime, an important ingredient for anyone in this day and age including those of you who think that tanned or dark skinned people are exempt from skin cancer – this is clearly not truth… you only have one skin, so for your own sake, look after it!

For those aged 25 and onwards, as far as anti-aging is concerned, prevention is better than cure. With today’s technology there are some fantastic anti-age skin care treatments on the market, and don’t be fooled into thinking you have to spend hundreds of dollars on any one item. If you do some quick research on the Internet, or visit your local supermarket, you will find plenty of reputable and less expensive brands are being backed by professional cosmetic surgeons who also promote prevention is better than cure.

Other useful skin care tips are more to do about a healthy and balanced diet, regular exercise and plenty of rest, all contributing factors to how we look and feel, both on the inside and out. How we eat, drink, exercise and rest will vary from time to time, based on how we feel and how we age. The same can be said about our overall beauty regime and soft silky korea mink lashes preferences.
