Do you ever get frustrated after doing your makeup because you’re still noticing fine lines, dryness and discoloration? If you’re not doing the right steps before applying your foundation and concealer, you may not end up with the perfect-looking complexion you crave. Here are three steps to help you out.
1. Exfoliate in the shower. According to Allure magazine, exfoliating your face in the shower will help get rid of dead skin cells that could dull your complexion and will also slough off any flakes that could show up later underneath your makeup. Try a facial scrub like Exuviance – Rejuvenating Bionic Scrub.
2. Moisturize. Moisturizing your skin not only prevents dryness, but helps plump up the surface of your complexion, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Massage a generous amount of a moisturizer like Dermalogica – Intensive Moisture Balance right after getting out of the shower.
3. Prime. Lastly, the finishing touch of your perfecting routine should be using a makeup primer. These products help fill in fine lines and wrinkles and smooth over pores, making the surface of your skin look smoother and more uniform. As an added bonus, primer also helps your makeup last longer!
