Skincare Routine To Prep Your Skin For Makeup
Beautiful makeup comes from taking care of your skin. Most of us often tend to forget that to achieve the “perfect look” you also need to prepare your face for makeup in the right way. We’re talking about skincare. If you skip out on your skincare routine before applying makeup, you could end up with uneven and patchy coverage that wears off way too soon and leads to skin irritation and blemishes. The right serums, moisturisers and other such skincare products can make a world of difference when it comes to your makeup looking good. And yes, prepping your skin for makeup application is quite simple - all it takes is following these five simple steps.
Step 1 - Cleanser
Cleaning your face is the first step towards preparing your skin for makeup. This helps remove excess oil, dirt and impurities from the skin, and keeps skin problems at bay. Use a soft and mild cleanser to help you even out your skin tone and make your skin smoother. You can go for the mild yet effective Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water that removes toxins from your skin without having to rinse. Further, refresh, revive and thoroughly cleanse your face with the Garnier Bright Complete Facewash that will help you reduce dullness and make your skin feel soft, supple and glowing.
Step 2 - Exfoliator
Nobody wants their makeup to look cakey. Get rid of the main culprit for this beauty disaster – dead skin cells! Exfoliation means uncovering the new smooth skin beneath. Scrub well to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate your neck. However, do not over-exfoliate as it can cause dryness, irritation and redness. Do it one to three times a week, depending on your skin type.
Step 3 - Serum
Once you have exfoliated your skin, it’s time to hydrate it well. Go for a vitamin C serum that not only hydrates the skin but also protects it from sunburn, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sagging, and dryness. The Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum helps you get a bright and spotless complexion by reducing dark spots and acne marks in just three days.
Step 4 - Moisturiser
Moisturising the skin is often overlooked by most. Nourishing your face and neck before applying makeup will make it feel radiant, hydrated and younger-looking. Lock the moisture of your skin, reverse sun damage and fade dark spots with the Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum Cream. This moisturising cream is infused with Yuzu Lemon extract that goes deep into the skin without making you feel sticky.
Step 5 - Sunscreen
Harmful rays of the sun can damage your skin and contribute to signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation, dry skin. You need to protect your skin’s health and radiance with the Garnier Bright Complete Serum Cream with SPF 40 that gets quickly absorbed into the skin and provides UV protection and skin brightening all at once.
Explore through a wide range of Garnier skincare products and get your skin makeup ready in minutes. Once you are done following this easy skincare routine, apply a primer to create a smooth canvas and your pre-makeup preparations are done. Primers act as a protective barrier that prevents the skin’s oil balance from mixing with your makeup. With that being done, you’re officially prepped for makeup application! You can now go and experiment with any makeup look without worrying about your skin.
