3 must have Skin Products

With the Christmas period fast approaching, there are many occasions where a heavy make-up look is a necessity but it can make our skin take a turn for the worst. Makeup covers our pores, so the more we put on the harder it is for our pores to breathe. When the pores on our faces are covered up, it can lead to skin irritation and breakouts.

While we know that in many causes, wearing no or minimal makeup on a night out doesn’t complete the outfit, so if you are wearing a lot of makeup, make sure to wash your face well each and every night to give your pores some free time. Just make sure to care for your skin in the process.

It’s all about the removal process. Removing makeup is the first step to clear skin. When you wear a lot of makeup, you need more remover to wash it off every night. However, your cleanser could be leaving harmful residue on your face. Not all makeup removers are created equal, so make sure to read about the ingredients in that bottle before using it every night.

Once you’re in the habit of washing your face every night, start to incorporate weekly exfoliation to really help your skin shine. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and clears away any remaining makeup residue, which seems impossible to remove no matter how many times you cleanse your skin. Morning and night, you should be applying eye cream and anti-aging serums that you can’t with makeup on. This should be done prior to application and after you’ve cleansed.
