If you’ve seen any recent fashion and beauty trends, you’ve likely noticed a recurring trend among both – the idea of pure, nude beauty, presented through healthy minimalism that focuses on bringing out your best features through proper self-care. With a surge of natural cosmetics, as well as the health and fitness revolution, we have come to appreciate our beauty as is, and there’s a much greater focus now on emphasizing health rather than masking our “flaws”.
Eager to give this lovely trend a go? Then read on to discover how you can ensure that your skin is pampered every step of the way with your choice of the right products, and your refreshed complexion will love you for it!
Keep it clean
The first and perhaps most important step you can take to protect your skin is, of course, your daily cleanse. Depending on your skin type, you can choose a mild, foamy wash, or perhaps goat milk infused soap and various oils to both purify and feed your pores in one go.
It’s important to note that you can wash your face several times per day, especially if you lead an active life and exercise on a regular basis, but morning and evening washes are the foundation for everyone. Also, weekly exfoliation with products such as the Glóey Purifying Exfoliator is an excellent way to scrub the dullness and extra dirt buildup away.
Nourish with proper essentials
You need to get to know your skin well in order to choose the perfect ingredients for its health. That said, make sure that you find a powerful moisturizer for each season since your summer ones should be lighter, while winters require a richer choice.
On the other hand, many ladies tend to neglect their SPF during the colder months, so you should make a vow to your lovely skin and always keep reliable sunscreen in your purse – and never leave your home without applying it on your skin. The Aveeno cream makes for a great choice for your entire body, your face included!
Protect your radiance
Every now and then, your skin needs a little extra pampering in order to truly protect and boost your natural beauty. For some gals, that means keeping that sun pigmentation under control, restoring your natural radiance, or preventing premature signs of aging. One of the best ways to achieve that is with the help of Fresh Faces dermal treatments and similar options that are designed to rejuvenate and protect.
As for the steps you can take at home for a similar result, there is a wide array of masks with various purposes that your skin can benefit from. In fact, you can make your own from a handful of nourishing ingredients and let the goodness of your mask work its way into your pores once or twice a month.
Keep puffy eyes at bay
Are you familiar with sleepless nights or pulling those all-nighters during a particularly difficult project? Perhaps you’re a new mom with a restless little one keeping you up at night, and you feel that your eyes could use some rest as well as beautifying. This is where eye creams truly shine, with Origins refreshing eye cream at the very top of the list.
There are many serums, gels, and creams available for this very purpose. Some are designed to target fine lines and wrinkles, while others work to diminish those dark circles and depuff your eyes after a sleepless night. Whichever effect you need, your skincare has you covered, way before your makeup can steal the spotlight!
Mind your lips, too
Finally, in all your effort to find and test the right lotions, cleansers, and sunscreen, don’t forget that the delicate, sensitive skin on your lips also deserves the same amount of attention and care. If you naturally have a tendency for chapped lips and pretty much any weather condition worsens the situation, then by all means, always keep a deliciously nourishing lip balm in your purse.
Some of the latest favorites include the likes of Nivea with built-in sun protection in addition to a deeply moisturizing effect. This is the one step in your skin care that often gets neglected and now’s your chance to do right by your perky pout and stay beautifully healthy in every way imaginable.
With this skincare regimen, you will notice that less truly is more in terms of your makeup efforts. All you’ll want (or need) is a touch of lip tint and perhaps some mascara for an evening look, and you’ll see just how immense of a difference your daily choices can make in defining your beauty!
