One of the key skincare steps is exfoliation. As we age, our cell renewal slows down, and causes skin to look dryer, dull, and fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations show up. Exfoliating 2-3 times a week, will keep your skin smooth, make pores, lines and discolorations much less noticeable, allowing your foundation to have a flawless finish.
Moisturizer for the daytime should be lighter weight, too heavy of a moisturizer can make your makeup slide off your face, and your skin can only absorb so much.
A primer is key to a lasting foundation. Think about priming before you paint, and what that does. A primer fills in, evens out, helps your foundation and other products go on easier, stay on longer, and you won’t use as much to get the results you want.
Using a facial oil is great if you have dryer skin. Facial oils are absorbed quickly into the skin, and provide the extra hydration needed. Oils can be applied after serum, before moisturizer. A good rule of thumb is applying the lightest weight products in skincare first.
Often a sponge is great for more mature skin for applying foundation, it can press the product into the skin, leaving the skin feeling more hydrated and blended and gives good coverage. Be sure to clean your makeup tools often to keep bacteria away.
Last, a setting spray to set you makeup. A setting spray is great to use during the day to refresh and hydrate your skin as well.
