Most base makeup products are oil-based, heavy and comedogenic. The product settles in your pores and causes blackheads and whiteheads. Scrub your face to remove dead skin cells and deep settled product build-up twice a week.
Don’t forget to moisturise
This one’s a no brainer and you probably already know this but let us lay it out. Before you start with your makeup, prep and prime your skin so that the products that follow don’t dry it out. Slather a moisturiser and use a primer before you go on to apply your heavy-duty makeup.
Always do a patch test
Before trying out a new makeup product, test it on your hand to check if the formulation suits your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. Allergic reaction from a makeup product is a real thing and if your skin is prone to irritation, rash and allergies, you must always do a patch test.
Invest in hydrating products
Your skin needs extra TLC when it’s exposed to makeup almost every day. Invest in hydrating sheet masks, serums and night creams and take your skincare regimen seriously to maintain the health of your skin.
Don’t sleep with makeup on
Even the makeup noobs know it. You absolutely cannot hit the sack with makeup on unless you want to wake up next morning with dark circles and acne all over your face. Always wipe off your makeup and cleanse your face before you go to bed.
