Skin care is the key to maintaining a youthful appearance
Ok, be honest… do you look after your skin?
This does not mean a quick splash of water and rubbing your face with baby wipes…
Skin care is the absolute basic requirement that will ALWAYS pay off. No matter how old you are, kinder you treat your skin the better it will look and feel. I always say, makeup will always apply better on a well-looked after canvas.
Basic guidance on skin care
Skin is the canvas to a fabulously flawless makeup application. I talk about this a lot with my clients and on my beauty lives, Makeup can enhance features and conceal skin issues but the crooks of beautiful makeup starts with a skin care regime.
There are a few things you can incorporate in to your regime to make big changes to the future of your skin;
- Drink lots of water. It will make your eyes sparkle and flush out toxins in your skin;
- Always cleanse your skin – morning and night. Remove all traces of makeup on an evening. Going to bed wearing makeup ages your skin prematurely;
- Ditch the facewipes. Use them only in emergencies. They strip the natural oils from your skin and they are bad for the environment;
- Always wear an SPF to protect your skin from sun damage;
- Always moisturise your skin. It is vital to rehydrate your skin on a daily basis;
- Avoid the sun bed. They cause premature wrinkles and are linked to increasing the chance of skin cancer.
