Trends may come and go, but glowing skin is always in!
If you’re some who loves keeping their makeup game top-notch and notice that your skin looks dull even under layers of makeup, then girl, you’re not paying as much attention to pre-makeup ritual as you should.
Yes, a pre-makeup ritual is a thing! In fact, an effective pre-makeup ritual is what will help you flaunt beautiful, glowing skin.
So, if you haven’t been prepping your skin well for all the makeup that is to follow, then here’s a gentle reminder that your skin needs some pampering before you layer it with multiple makeup products.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to a pre-makeup ritual.
Step 01: Scrub
Doesn’t matter how good your makeup skills are, if your skin looks dull, your makeup is not going to stand out. Apart from hydration, your skin follicles need to be clean and free of gunk and grime.
Exfoliating is the answer to your dull skin woes. Reach for a gentle exfoliator such as the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub to slough off dead skin cells. Massage your skin in small circular motions to stimulate blood circulation and achieve a healthier glow.
Step 02: Serum
Here’s another product that needs to be a part of your pre-makeup ritual. We’re talking about the serum. Prep your skin with a vitamin C serum before you go in with your makeup products.
Loaded with powerful enzymes and antioxidants, vitamin C serum not only helps even your skin tone but also plumps up your skin for a healthy, youthful glow. We suggest you get your hands on the Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum Brightening Vitamin C Serum which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves the skin looking brighter and feeling hydrated.
Step 03: Eye cream
Let’s admit it! Puffiness under your eyes and dark circles around the eye area can sometimes bring your makeup game down drastically. You’re not always going to have time to apply foundation and follow it up with concealer to conceal the problem areas.
It is, therefore, important to include an eye cream in your pre-makeup ritual. An eye cream such as the Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift can help de-puff, brighten and give your eyes an overall lift.
Step 04: Dewy lotion
If you want radiant-looking skin, then here’s a hack that can help. Mix an illumination face cream or moisturiser with your foundation and apply the mixture on your face. This little trick will make sure you get a dewy finish.
Similarly, mix your lip balm with your moisturiser and prep your lips with it before you go in with the application of a heavy matte formula.
