Read on to find out just how to care for your skin if you are someone who prefers to wear makeup every day.

Get rid of makeup the right way
You all know how important it is to remove makeup every single day before hitting the bed and what happens if you don’t. But did know that how you do this also determines your skin health? If you think that it is all right to leave behind a little bit of stubborn kohl or mascara, then let us tell you that this could have damaging effects in the long run. It could lead to dark circles and broken or stunted lashes.
Resort to double cleansing
It is really important to ensure that you are not just getting rid of all the makeup, but also the dirt, dust and other impurities settled in your pores. Hence, we would advise you to indulge in a two-step, thorough clean-up also called double cleansing. This process thoroughly removes impurities and makeup to leave your skin completely clean and fresh.
Use an antioxidant serum
To help repair and protect your skin, it is important to keep it hydrated and nourished at all times. And what better way to do this than to use an antioxidant-rich serum. Besides hydrating the skin, this serum will protect your skin from environmental aggressors like pollution, dirt, and sun damage. It also prevents the onset of wrinkles, dark spots, pigmentation, amongst other signs of ageing, and gives you firm, youthful skin.
Pamper your skin a little every once in a while
Exposing your skin to makeup products everyday can be harsh on the skin if it is not compensated with proper care. Apart from your usual skincare routine, indulge your skin in some extra TLC every once or twice a week. This is will help replenish your skin and keep it looking radiant and glowing. You can opt for a DIY face mask if you want, or put on a sheet mask if you want quicker results.
