I have had several requests lately to go over the basics of skincare and how to achieve a 'polished-pretty' face. Today we're tackling the issue!
'Skincare' is just that - Taking care of our skin. The essential elements to achieving a flawless face begin way before the foundation is ever applied. I will tell you up front that one of the single most awful things you can do to your skin is to go to sleep with your makeup on. That will only put you on a fast track to developing early wrinkles and we don't want that.
While I promote several different brands and products here at The Bee's Knees, I have to tell you that when it comes to my face and skincare- I trust it to Mary Kay. Everyone has their own style and 'fit' but for me it's MK. I have used the products for years now and I personally feel that they have left my face feeling smooth, hydrated, and protected- hence the reason I use them. HOWEVER, these same principles can be applied no matter 'what' brand or products you choose to use. :)
Let's review a few of the basics when it comes to skincare:
- Eye Cream
- Microdermabrasion (A big word that simply means- buff & polish your skin)
- Battery Powered Facial Scrubber
- Moisturizer on a budget!
- Face Primer
Face primer causes your foundation to go on flawlessly and beautifully. It sort of 'fills in the cracks' and leaves the face looking camera ready. ;)
I know that was a lot of information but I hope that you found it beneficial! You are never too young to start taking good care of your skin. Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner of the Bee's Knees Spring Forward Giveaway!! Exciting. Stay tuned for all of the details on that. Thank you so much for reading. I love you all and hope you have a great day!
