We all want that totally flawless complexion so often seen on the red carpet and the runway, but most of us don't have the time or budget to see an aesthetician on the regular. Between redness, sun damage, and blemishes, taking care of our skin can sometimes feel like a losing battle. Luckily for us, however, there are more complexion-perfecting products hitting the market than ever! Here are some of our top skincare and makeup tips...
The best way to avoid sun damage? By blocking UV rays, of course! The first step of any daily beauty routine should always be applying an SPF moisturizer - and if you're thinking of the SPF30 in your foundation, don't: most of us don't use enough foundation to provide our skin with ample coverage. Of course, using SPF doesn't mean you can't work a sexy summer glow: use a tanning serum every evening as part of your regular skincare routine for a subtle and natural-looking bronze.
By exfoliating your skin, you remove dead skin cells sitting on the outer layer. This is vital, because it's often the top layer of your skin that's the most damaged. Either manually (using a gentle scrub) or chemically (such as with a brightening toner containing AHAs or BHAs), try to exfoliate your skin 2x per week to keep your skin soft, clear, and flaw-free!
While your well on your way to naturally beautiful skin, it doesn't hurt to improve upon your hard work with a little makeup! A perfecting primer is the first step to smoothing away fine lines and blurring pores. You can then follow up with a color correcting BB cream, which contains tiny beads of peach and green that work to counteract signs of fatigue or redness. The final result? Beautiful uniform skin!
