Many skin care issues are caused by improper cleansing. In order to maintain healthy skin, you must cleanse thoroughly every morning and every night (after you remove your makeup). Work in a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type for at least 1 minute by emulsifying it with water and massaging it into the skin. It’s also vital to remove all residue from the cleanser by carefully rinsing the skin. No more than 2-3 times a week should you exfoliate your skin to gently scrub away dulling, dead skin cells. Gently buff in a facial scrub (avoid scrubs with jagged, uneven edges as they may cause micro-tears in the skin) for about a minute using circular motions. Then rinse all remaining product from the skin.
Always follow up your cleansing routine with moisturizer, no matter what your skin type. Even those with oily skin need to add moisture! During the day, be sure to apply a moisturize with SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Next, apply a makeup primer to guarantee an even makeup application. Primers also seal in moisture to help maintain a glowing appearance.
For glowing skin, choose a lightweight, liquid foundation to even out your skin tone and hide any blemishes. Apply a thin layer evenly across the skin. Blend the foundation in with your fingers for a more natural appearance.
Apply an illuminating product such as NARS Copacabana Illuminator across your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose, and just above your temples to really emphasize your glowing skin and best facial features.
Set your look by applying a light layer of a translucent powder, such as MAKE UP FOR EVER’s HD Microfinish Powder, with a kabuki brush. Translucent powders go on sheer and don’t add any color to the skin, so they will not hide your healthy glow!
