But no matter what the season is, here are 6 skincare standards to live by.
Being a makeup artist and having worked in the cosmetic industry for 20+ years; I am constantly given skincare samples by brands in the hopes that I will suggest them to my clients. The products listed below I have used myself and on my clients. These are my humble opinions and I was not compensated in any way for expressing them.
1. It is super important to use a good eye cream and NOT a gel under your eyes.
A gentle exfoliant is best. A good one is Acure Brightening Facial Scrub. After cleansing, your face should still be damp. Use about the size of a nickel, and gently roll the product around your face. Spend more time around your nose and center of the face. Do not scrub hard... I always say, "you scrub a floor but not your face!”
3. Wear sunscreen every day!!
My dermatologist told me an SPF of 30 is best to wear on a daily basis. The saying about "an ounce of prevention..." is true!
4. Drink water - Hydrating the skin starts from within.
5. Wash your face before going to sleep no matter what.
