Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today is another beauty tips sharing session. Today topic is about glowing skin. Clear glowing skin is a dream of everyone. How to get a glowing skin? How to have flawless skin? Even after you apply the expensive skincare, your face still look dull or your makeup still doesn’t last long. Still wondering why??? No worries, today I’m here to help you out.
- Proper cleansing
According to dermatologist, proper number of cleansing should be two times daily. One in the morning and another one at night. Face wash in the morning should be very mild. Instead, just use a warm washcloth to gently clean your face and then put on some toner. When you sleep, your skin will produce oils. The oils released during that time are good for your skin, so don’t wash them away in the morning! If you are using a very strong pH cleanser in the morning, your face will then start to reproduce the oils. Oils reproduction usually takes 2-3 hours. However, if you you apply your makeup before that period, your skin will not look glowing. This will be reasons why your makeup doesn’t last long and your face look dull in the morning. If you still feel like you need a cleanser in the morning, I’ll suggest a mild cleanser like COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. On the other hand, night cleansing is the step that shouldn’t be skip. We have to make sure that all dirt and makeup should be remove nicely. I’ll suggest to use a form cleanser like Kiehls Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash.
As I have mention in previous post [Steps to Summer Perfect Skin], keeping your face moisturized and hydrated is very important. No matter what seasons is it, summer or winter, moisturizing step shouldn’t be miss. Toner and moisturizer provides different level of moisture. Toner is just to soften the skin so that the skin can absorbs the moisture from the moisturizer more quickly and easy. In the morning, you can choose a light moisturizer like Kiehls Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream and at night for dry and dehydrated skin you can go for oil selection like Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate or for oily skin I’ll choose to use Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. I have try all these moisturizer and I love it. They keep your skin moisturized but not leaving you s greasy feeling.
- Remove makeup before sleep
Sleeping with makeup on is very bad to the skin. Makeup fills in your pores and glands, thus causing inflammation. After a long day outside, the first things to do is remove all the junk (makeup) from our face. We can’t deny that makeup is made with chemicals. So, it’s very important that for us to leave our face clean and free from those chemicals. No matter how busy or tired it is, I’ll still cleanse my face before I sleep. I can skip the moisturizing steps but not the cleansing. If you are really tired and lazy, I’ll suggest you to use cleansing water like Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water that have the properties to cleanse and moisturize your skin at the same time. But, if you have enough time never, never skip your proper cleansing.
- The right foundation
Choosing the right foundation is very important. It’s the main factor of how your skin will be reflects. A good foundation will keep you looking good all the time but will not cause any troubles to your skin too. As long as you take it off before bed, makeup isn’t going to do much harm. Find a foundation that isn’t too heavy for your skin and has SPF. Remember less is always better. Try not to apply your foundation to heavy. Sometimes heavy foundation is the cause of your sensitive and acne skin. Your makeup will also will not be that long-lasting with heavy foundation on. Foundation mainly is to balance your skin tone. If you need to cover up your flaw, use a concealer. Rinse your brushes as often as you can and wash them with soap once a week. My post ‘A Clean Brush | For Wonderful Makeup‘ do have techniques for you to clean your makeup tools.
- Drinking enough water
Not to forget, natural beauty come from our body itself. So, girls remember to drink enough of water everyday. 2oooCC of water should be the base line for everyday intake. Fatigue and tiredness is the cause of not drinking enough water. When the body dehydrate, tissues and cells will start to be weak. To keep our skin glowing and healthy, drinking enough of water is very important. Maybe you will find that only drinking plain water will be boring, here I have a post for you to make your drinks more tasty and healthy. Read this: Detox Water (Healthy + Beauty) for a better drink.
