If you are someone who just can’t go a day without applying makeup or loves to experiment with different makeup looks every day, congrats girls! You are a true makeup lover. While it’s good to see you being so passionate about makeup, do you have the same kind of passion for your skin? Given that you use makeup almost every day, giving your skin barely a chance to breathe, it’s important to build an effective skincare routine to keep your skin from getting damaged in the long run. As much as we love pretty much every aspect of makeup, it’s also a well-known fact that wearing makeup every day results in clogged pores, excess dryness, and several other skin woes. These issues are completely avoidable if you are taking proper care of your skin, and if you have no idea about how you can do that, we are here to help you out. Listed below are some skincare tips you must follow if you love wearing makeup every day.
Exfoliate your face without fail
Most makeup products like foundations and concealers are oil-based, heavy, and comedogenic in nature, these three elements together can wreak havoc on your skin by clogging the pores, which takes the form of nasty acne. While cleansing and makeup removers help to get rid of makeup, dirt, and other impurities from the face, they remove them only from the surface. Exfoliation not only helps to eliminate dead skin cells, but it also deep cleanses your pores. You should exfoliate your skin no less than two times a week.
Always use your moisturizer
Being a makeup lover, you should know the importance of using a moisturizer as it is one of the main keys to flaunting flawless makeup. You should always prep your skin first before moving ahead with makeup application. Keeping your face well moisturized will allow easy blending of makeup products, which in turn, will make your makeup look seamless. Also, you should always use a primer after moisturizing to create a smooth canvas for makeup.
Do patch test
Doing a patch test of the products before using them is always a wise thing to do. If you are trying any product for the very first time, you should do a patch test to check if its formula suits your skin or not. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergic reactions, allergies, and rashes, you should always do a patch test just for your skin’s sake.
Use hydrating products
Wearing makeup every day can easily take a toll on your skin, it’s important to give your skin some break from layers of makeup that are sneakily hampering your delicate skin. However, if you can’t really take a break from makeup, then make it a point to pamper your skin with good skincare products to maintain its health. Hydrating products like sheet masks, serums, and night creams will help to give your skin an extra boost of hydration and nourishment.
Always take your makeup off before going to bed
If you don’t follow this basic and most important rule, you are guilty of making the stupidest mistake that can damage your skin in the long run. No matter how tired or lazy you feel, you should always take your makeup off before going to bed, or else you are going to wake up to a new batch of pimples and dark circles the following morning.
